A RACE WITH RUIN. By HEADON HILL, Author of "Guilty Gold," "The Queen of Night," "By a Hair's Breadth," "The Peril of the Prince," &c., &c. SYNOPSIS OF PREVIOUS CHAPTERS. Leopold Tannadyce is a. money-lender and financial shark, who holds heavy mortgages on the estate of Sir Charles Eoylance, which he is about to foreclose, for he covets Roy- lance Abbey, hoping to acquire social status by becoming its owner. lioylance has a horse, Starlight, with which he hopes to win the Century Stakes, and, by means of long price betting, gain sufficient money to Pay off the mortgages. Tannadyce has a jackal in a broken-down peer, named Hooligan, whom he has ruined, and whom he now uses, in connection with a betting agency, to tip Starlight, and thus reduce the odds preventing the coup Eoylance seeks to bring off. The betting agency, "Parker's Lightning Finals," in run by a ruined gentleman named Beau- champ, assisted by his daughter, Nance, who discovers Tannadyce's designs and seeks to save Roylance, who, in better days, was her sweetheart. Hooligan is suspected of the murder of a woman found dead on Epsom Downs. She is the sister of a "bookie" named Tidmarsh, was once a music-hall star, and was inveigled into a sham marriage by Hooligan. Tidmarsh. who is unaware of the identity of his sister's betrayer and mur- derer, has sworn to hunt him to the death. Nance has, unfortunately, attracted the un- pleasant attentions of ooth Hooligan and Tannadyce. Nance and Sir Charles meet at the Thames-side house of a relative of the latter, and while boating together are run down by Tannadyce in a steam launch. Tannadyce picks up Nance-and rushes her to London. Eoylance follows and sees her drive away with Tannadyce. Later they meet at Nance's lodgings, and a full explanation follows. Eoylance declares his love, and Nance accepts him. Later Nance is inveigled from her lodgings by Tannadyce's minions, on the pretence that her father, who has been assaulted in his office by Hooligan, is worse and needs her a.t the hospital. Roylance and Inspector Croal call at Nance's lodgings to find her gone, to Croal's intense disappointment, for he hoped to trace the murderer of Tid- marsh's sister through Nance, who was on Epsom Downs on the morning of the murder. Tannadyce, in addition to the outrage in kidnapping and detaining Nance, has laid a plan for the seizure of the horse Starlight under a forgotten judgment for zC5,000 obtained against Sir Charles Roy- lance. Nance's anguish at the dangers threatening her at Rook's Nest is increased by the fact that, though she knows of this plot against Starlight, she is powerless to I warn her lover of the danger to the horse. which, if it won the Century Handicap while still his property, would, owing to its price, to which it had receded in the betting, redeem the fallen fortunes of his house. CHAPTER XXXV-Continued. A Soft-roed Bloater. "You don't mean It!" she gasped. "Hang me if I don't," responded her hus- band. "Now, see here, Sue; I've got to best that cove. You paid him in silver; I heard from the top of the stairs. What change did he give you? A bob and some coppers, eh? Well, go up to the bedrom and fetch that bad ?hilling I took a while back. You'll nnd it on the mantelpiece." Mrs. Tidmarsh not unnaturally jumped to the conclusion that her husband was still under surveillance for betting, and obeyed with alacrity. While she was gone Mr. Tid- marsh took another peep from the window and saw that the hawker was sitting on the kerb a. little higher up. Just as Mrs. Tid- marsh returned and handed her husband an unmistakable "duffer" the man rose and got on the move again in a. direction which would bring him past the house once more. Tidmarsh strode to the front door and flung it open, holding the base coin in the palm of his hand. "You thieving rogue!" he thundered as the hawker came np. "You're a pretty feller to be passing bad money on the missus, and I'm going to lock you up. Here, you nipper (to a gaping shopboy), run round into Upper- street and send along the first p'Lioeman you meet." Mr. Croal, for the hawker was indeed Mr. Croal, by being surprised into his natural facial expression for the fraction of a second, gave way the first trick in the game he was destined to play that day. Mr. Tidmarsh was sure of his man now, and realised that he piust win a duel of wits with a keen antagonist before he could, unwatched, reach the lonely house at Mitcham where his prey awaited him. Mr. Croal was in the painful predicament of not knowing whether he had inadvertently passed a bad shilling or not. It was quite probable that he had done Bú; on the other hand he did not overlook the chance that Tidmarsh had recognised him and was tak- ing this course in order to get rid of him. For the moment he was non-plussed, but he thought it advisable to sustain his assumed character. "I ain't passed no bad money—knowingly at least," he replied, feigning the requisite whine. "You can tell that to the magistrate," stormed the bookmaker. "Here, constable," as the officer arrived, "I give this man in charge for passing bad money—a reg'lar old hand, I expect." The policeman examined the pewter shill- ing which had been reposing on the bedroom mantelpiece for six months, and shook his head wisely as he pulled out his notebook to take the prosecutor's name and address. But Mr. Tidmarsh waved it aside. Never mind that," he said; I'll come along to the station with you and charge him myself." For he knew that the moment Croal was alone with the constable he would make matters right for himself by producing his official card, whereas so long as he desired to preserve his incognito he would not divulge his identity in Mr. Tidmarsh's presence. The latter meant, if he could, to get his shadow badly left" in the attempt to follow him. So Mr. Croal was duly taken into custody, and Mr. Tidmarsh marched close at his heels so that he could have no opportunity of whispering to the constable. It was not till he was half-way to the station that the bookmaker remembered that this early commencement of hide-and-seek with the inspector had relieved him of one unpleasant- ness. He had been sorely dreading saying good-bye to his wife that day, all ignorant as she was of his homicidal intentions. Now that awkward farewell would not be necessary. He would not go home again till after he had wiped out Hooligan." Croal accepted the position with resigna- tion, confident in his ability not to lose sight of his man. His investigations during the last day or two, especially Skinner's meeting with Tidmarsh at the Union Jack on the previous evening, had convinced him that Tannadyce was playing a deep game and using the bookmaker to pull the chest- nuts oat of the fire. In fact, he had gained a shrewd inkling of the truth—that Tid- marsh's private vendetta against the slayer of his sister had been seized on by the money- lender to. terminate an association that would be inconvenient in the event of Hooligan being brought for trial. The inspector had ascertained that the dissolute peer had completely vanished from his usual haunts, and all his efforts to connect Tannadyce with the fugitive had failed till he hit on the idea of watching Tidmarsh AS well AA Tanaadyoe. Though hej had been unable to overhear much of the interview with Skinner, he had learned enough to guess that the bookmaker would lead him straight to his quarry and enable him not only to prevent the law being taken into private hands but to execute a certain document in his possession. The document was a warrent for" wilful murder against Henry Augustus Yansittart Blundell, Baron Hooligan of Hooligan, in the county of Waterford. Arrived at the police-station, the constable quickly put the prisoner and the prosecutor through the usua<l formalities before the inspector on duty. Croal refused to give any; name or address. and having been measured and charged was hustled off to a cell, from which, after a hurried explanation and exhibition of his card, he emerged exactly forty seconds later-in time to catch sight of Mr. Tidmarsh's broad back descending the station steps. Mr. Croal had won the second trick and started in pursuit. He would have been glad of five minutes to do a quick change into a fresh disguise, but all he could do was to leave his basket of soft-roed 'uns with the respectful and sympathetic, but highly amused, local police. Then began a chase which was diversified by varying fortunes. Tidmarsh's object was to kill time, for he did not want to go down to Mitcham till the evening, when the pugilists mentioned by Skinner would have left him a clear field. He wandered down to the Strand, stared at the shops, lunched at Gatti's, and, finally, about four o'clock, when leaving the Grand Hotel buffet, after a drink with a chance-met sporting acquaint- ance, became aware that Croal was not shaken off after all. He smiled grimly to himself as he noticed the absence of the fish-basket and the ragged garments of the "hawker." Somehow, a basket, or a handful of bootlaces, or a bunch of grounsel seemed necessary to the inspector's make-up, and Mr. Tidmarsh rejoiced at the incompleteness. He must have put his shadow to considerable incon- venience to hustle him into such a lack of consistency in his disguise. Well, the game would have to begin all over again—that was all. The bookmaker said good-bye to his friend, hailed a hansom, and gave the word in a loud voice for 17, Beaker-street. But Croal was not deceived by the ruse. Jumping into another cab, he soon perceived that the bookmaker was instructing the driver through the flap, -with the result that the cab turned up the Hay- market, crossed Regent-street, and finally pulled up at the northern entrance of the Burlington Arcade. Mr. Tidmarsh was down and into the Arcade before Croal's cab had stopped, and then the inspector realised that he had been done on the post" again. Just as Tidmarsh had artfully calculated, Croal's disreputable appearance did not find favour with the beadle on duty at the gate, and it was not till after a lengthy explanation that the detective was permitted to pass in. By that time the man he was pursuing was ens4bnced in a tobacconist's shop half-way down the Arcade, bending over the counter and pretending to make an elaborate choice of a cigar. His idea was that Croal, on being allowed to enter, would dash straight through and out at the other end, in the supposition that he himself would have done the same. But in this respect his cunning had overreached itself. Croal certainly made all speed to the southern exit, but there he introduced himself to the second beadle, and quickly ascertained that no one answering to Tid- marsh's description had gone out that way- no difficult matter, owing to the showy suit worn by the bookmaker. So presently Mr. Tidmarsh, who had lighted his cigar and seated himself in the shop to await developments, had the chagrin of seeing his antagonist slowly repass, and he was not at all sure that the inspector's sharp eyes had not caught sight of him in the dark interior. After that it became a battle of patience, Croal patrolling the Arcade and Tidmarsh smoking cigar after cigar while maturing a fresh plan. He hit on one at last, and none too soon. if he was to catch the train to Mitcham he had decided on—6.45 from Victoria. The afternoon had slipped away apace in all these dodgings to and fro, and it was already past six. His move was also expedited by the fact that the tobacconist had begun to eye him askance, despite his profuse purchases. He rose and walked from the shop, and knew long before he was out of the Arcade tha.t Croal was close on his tracks. Dis- regarding him entirely, he hailed a cab in Piccadilly, and bade the man take him to Victoria Station. There he swaggered into the first-class booking-office and asked for a Pullman-car return for Brighton. The express was drawn up at the main-line departure platform, and Mr. Tidmarsh. ostentatiously seated himself in the drawing" room car. The third-class carriages were in the front of the train, and a minute later he saw Croal go by the car towards them. Once again he was trading on the unfortunate detective's make-up, for he told himself with much satisfaction that his pursuer's present. style was hardly classy" enough for the Pullman. And this time his simple-hearted cunning was crowned with success. The whistle sounded, the train began to move, but not till it was well in nrotion did he step from the platform of the car on to tha platform of the terminus and wave a partinjp hand to the fast receding face of Mr. Croal, who was leaning out of one of the third- class carriages, peering back. "Yah! What price soft-roed 'uns?" resounded the bookmaker's jubilant shout. Croal tore frantically at the door-handle of his compartment, but the train had gathered too much way for a safe descend, and those within restrained him from making the attempt. With a sigh of relief Tidmarsh ran round and jumped into the suburban train, which started almost as he sank into, his seat. (To be continued.)
"I notice that yon and Charlie no longer play ping-pong." "No," replied the demure damsel; "we don't care very much for a game that keeps us at opposite ends of a table." The family ne'er-do-well had turned up again with nothing in his pockets but his hands. He stood on the family hearthrug, before the family fire, and he said, Ab, Argentina is the place. Why, you can get a splendid fat turkey there for a shilling." Is that so?" said a sarcastic relative. Then if I'd been in your place I should have stayed there." "Would you, now?" remarked the traveller. eyeing the speaker meditatively. "Well,them, since you'd have stayed, probably you can tell me how I woo to get the SHILLING ia .Aœentiu.
