XX COSTIXUED There was a brief silence broken nt lad by Sprague who naked lIne he escaped Sturgis hesitated That depends upon how we look at It he said gravely at length he ha paid the penalty of his crimes What do you mean 1 He IB dead answered the reporter Dead But I tell you I saw him I know but he has died since Suicide rXo the reporters voice sank to n whisper murder Murder repeated the nrtIst star tied But how do you know that 1 This lump of lead tells the story said Sturgis holding up the shapeless piece of metal which he had taken out of the vat- What Is It A bullet Yes the bullet which Chatham car reed In his arm from the time that he was wounded by Arbogast the bullet which hnx enabled me to trace hint step bystep from his light from the over turned cab to DrJThurstons and llnall to his death in this very room tit bullet whose peculiar shape is record ed In this shadow picture taken by Thurstou by means of the Itocntgei raysSo saying he handed Sprague the photograph But the artist had cease to listen In this very room 1 he mused aloud looking about him with awe Yes The story is simple enough The man whose Instrument Chathan was IB nut one who would care to bi lumbered up with tools which become positively dangerous as soon as they cease to be useful This man totally unhampered by pity gratitude or fear determined to destroy the accountant whose discovery might have imperiled hie own welfare What mattered n human life or two when weighed against the possible loss of his own life or liberty or of his high social standing and his enormous wealth for this man is both renowned and rich and he appears to have brought wholesale murder to n science Do you mean to say that wholesale murder can be indulged in with lam punity in a city like Xew York at the end of the nineteenth century l asked Sprague aghast Yea when it is done in the system atic and scientific mannerthat has been employed here For this murderer Is the most remarkable criminal of mod era times He has not been satisfied with killing his victims he has sue coded in completely wiping them out of existence Criminals have often at tempted to destroy the bodies of their victims but they have never before suc ceeded as this man has lie is a chem- Ist of remarkable talent and he has discovered a compound in which bone as well as human tissue is rapidly and totally dissolved There it is in yonder tank See how completely the liquid has destroyed the bone handle of this knife Sturgis after showing the damaged knife to his companion resumed his whittling upon the cover of the box on which the artist was seated Chathams body has been dissolved In that tank within a vcryshort time It has entirely disappeared this flattened bullet alone Is left lead being one of the few substances which are not soluble in the contents of the tank Fortunately he overlooked that fact Genius has its lapses Presently Sprague ventured to say If numerous crimes have been com mitted here as you Intimate I do not understand how It is that suspicion has never rested on this house be fore The author of these crimes has taken every precaution to render the chance of discovery quite remote Ills dwellinghouse on one street and the bogus Chemical company on the other are in communication through this underground passage while appar ently having no connection with each other Moreover he Is too shrewd to make frequent use of this death cham ber That does well enough as a last retort when he Is obliged to commit the murders with his own hands but I suspect that this man has other agent like Chatham who do the dirty work for him and then quietly ship the bodies here for annihilation If It W9 Intend pbould l1t don with Arbogasta Ah yes I though so You are sitting upon one of these bodies now- Sprague started to his feet and following the direction In which Stui gs was pointing with Ills open knife he vaguely discerned through thc opening which the reporter hal whit tied a small surface of what ha once been the features of a liuma beingAfter gazing for some minutes In horror stricken silence at the distorted face the artist asked in Blow voice How did Chatham meet his death I dont know yet answered Stui gis gravely this man is no orillnur criminal Ills work Is clean an leaves no blood stnins and no dlsordc to tell of Its nccomplIshment H takes life with his own hands on when he is forced to do so but whet he does his method is masterly It was easier to make away with Chat ham than to pay him the price agrcei upon for his complicity in the lintel erbocker batik embezzlement and rl his life was taken I hope to dlscove how before I leave here Sprague started as the report e censed speaking The price of his complicity Ill claimed laying his hand upon Sturgis arm and looking earnestly into his eyesYes replied the reporter stead ly meeting his friends gaze his daughters hand Sprague looked away from the honest eyes of the reporter ns If he dreaded to read in them the answer to his next question Who is this fiend incarnate win Is willing to traffic In his own llcsl and blood and with whom murder a science The man who is capable of thesi crimes nnd of any others wdilcl might serve to remove an obstncl from his wa Is The reporter did not finish his sen tence lie suddenly grasped his corn panion by the arm and stood trans fixed his eyes dilated his neck crunci In a listening attitude every muscle tense like those of a wild animal In ambush about to spring upon its np pronchlng prey- 1resentiy a click was heard though a bolt had been shot from itt socket Draw your revolver Sturgis whims pored hoarsely to his companion Quick Ix ok there At the saute time he drew his owl weapon and pointed in the dircctini of the door at the head of the Ktnlra The door opened und n man entered quietly smoking a cigar Dr Murdock exclaimed Sprague with horror Murdock still holding the door ajar eyed the two men for an Instant hit impassive face betraying not the slightest sign of emotion Then tak ing his cigar from his lips Ah gentlemen he drawled In hli ironical way I am delighted to ace you I trust you will make yourselve perfectly nt home for a few minutes 1 shall return directly You can con tInue to work out your little problem in the meantime Mr Sturgis With these words he calmly turned to leave the room ShIpI shouted Sturgis leveling his revolver at Murdocku head stand where you are or I fire The reporters shot rang out almost before he had finished his sentence but Murdock unscathed passed out of the room closing the door behind himSprague dazed by the rapidity with which this scene had been acted stood rooted to the spot without having node any attempt to use the revolver which he had drawn at Sturgis bid ding The reportersprung up the stain and threw his weight against the door But it was doubtless intended to withstand great nhocks for it re mained unshaken Cheek came the sound of a mock ing voice from the otter side of the doorThen rushing down the stairs again Sturgis shouted to huts com panion Come quick We must gc4 out ol hereAnd he led the way through the subterranean passage toward the cel Jar of the Manhattan Chemical com Party CIIAPTKU XXI TilE DEATH CIIAMUER Before the men had gone many steps a grating sound reached their ears from the direction of the skylight They looked up and saw sliding steel shutters slowly nnd ponder ously close like grim jaws and sud denly they felt themselves cut oil from the outside world Sturgis taking up his lighted can dIe made his way to the door of the subterranean passage nod tried in vain to open it the heavy iron bolt remained immovable in its socket Inch by Inch he scrutinized the door with growing anxiety At last he abandoned the search and returned In the direction of the square chamber That explains why he wanted to shut me in here when I was in his office he muttered under Ills breath What Is the matter asked SpragueWe caught like rats in a trap replied Sturgis Then with feeling he added I do not know how this will end old man I have bungled and I Tear the game Is lost If our lives ort the forfeit you will owe your death to my stupidity Sprague looked at his friend ns if surprised to hear him apparently abandon the fight Dont worry about me he said kindly I came here of my own free ivlll But he added aw a vision of Agnes burdock flashed upon his mind I have no intention to die just yet It Anjiely itAre wo not both able bodied men ana armed What can one man do against two It is not an open light mid Stur gis but I am glad to sec your spirit I do nut give up but I want you to realize that we are in n critical situation with time odds enormously against us Why what can Murdock do Perhaps what he did to Chatham It will probably not be long before we discover what that was But there must be sonic way of opening that door from the Inside said Sprague There evidently is none replied Sturgis he probably controls these doors from the outside by electrical connection The men were buck In the square chamber Sturgis eyes were roving restlessly over the walls ceIlIng nnd floor in search of a loophole of escape There is no chance to reach the sky light without a ladder nail even if we could reach It we should be no fur ther advanced ns It would be impos sible to make any impression on the steel shutters That leaves the register nod the speaking tube While examine the register suppuKC you try the tube If it connects with the Man hattan Chemical companys oulee there Is a bare chance that we may ut trnet the attention of the detectives whom we loft there As wo were saying Mr Sturgis Tho words came In Murdocks mocking tOUts Sturgis quickly held the lighted can die above hit head and peered In tin direction whence conic the sound A panel of the door at the head of the stairs hnd been pushed np revealing n small opening covered by a strong nllli closelywoven wire netting As Wit were saying murder will out Nevertheless It Is sometimes easier to weld n chain even of circum stantial evidence than it is to pre diet who will be hound In it Sturgis rind Sprague stood In time glimmering light of the candle silently watching the glowing eyes behind thescreenMr you are n clever tan continued burdock an uncommonly rAH OENTIKMKN I AM DKLIOHTEL TO SEE YOU clever man I frankly admit that I had underrated your

with yowl whim to honorably carry out the terms of my wager with Mr Sturgis I concede time lact that to nil intents nnd purposes he has won the het anti authorize you Mr Sprague as stakeholder to pity

correct a blunder A lifetime It is not In accordance with Mr Sturgis usual practice to use so vague a lerm1 lifetime U not nccci sadly n very long time Mr Sturgis During this tirade Sturgis and Sprague had remained standing with their eyes fixed upon the gleatmuing care biiuclcs which peered at them from be hind the grated peep hol at the top of the stairs The artist seemed to real he that the light was lost llisattitudv was that of a brave man accepting with calm despair an unpleasant but inevitable doom The reporter had drawn his revolver at the first sound ot Murdocks voice but had Immedi ately returned It to his pocket upon realizing that the chemist wnu protected by a bulletproof grating iopnloa- UlI collected he remnlncd Inscrutable It was Impossible even for the sharp eyes of Murdock to determine whether he was at last resigned to hula fate or whethor his active mind was still on time alert for n loophole of escape The lilt of candle which he held in his hand hnd burned
