But sub- sequent events will prove how much in error she was. 'Seeking rest after her numerous esca- pades, Elaine visits her nurse, Aunt Tabby, in the country. Nightly thereafter, mysterious noises are heard which cannot be located. Elaine communicates her fears to Kennedy, who deter- mines to investigate. His suspicions have been aroused by a plan found among Bennett's effects. He and Jameson, hearing the spooky sounds, search for the cause and discover a secret pas- sage-way which leads into the ground. Follow- ing this, they come upon Long Sin (the Chinese adventurer), who is but the tool of the Oriental master criminal, Wu Fang. They are overcome by a deadly gas and are about to be despatched by Long Sin when Elaine appears with her dog. In the struggle that follows the roof caves in. The Oriental escapes with a mysterious box which he came for, but the others are left behind to-be rescued by Aunt Tabby and her husband. Long Sin reports to Wu Fang. They open the box, which is supposed to contain seven million dol- lars, but find only a mystic ring.
