CHAPTER XIV. A Missing Link. There was to be no interruption of the festivities, that, the Duke had in sisted upon. But all the pleasure and healthy excitement had vanished. Al ready more than one guest had sud denly develftped a thoughtfulness for his chauffeur, whose very existence lie had previously forgotten. It was all very well for the bauds to play, for the younger people to fling themselves into the pleasure of the dance, but the chill breath of suspicion lay over all, like an unexpected frost in a garden of flowers. «■ The police were expected now at any moment. Even in so brilliant n house as Glenday Castle it was im possible to feel gay and light-hearted with the advent of a detective from Scotland Yard. Somehow the thought of their coming disturbed the Princess much more than the loss of the dia monds. Meanwhile she was consoling her self with a cigarette before the cheery dickering of a wood fire in her bed room. She lay back, with one hand thrown' behind her dark head,...

The pupils of her eyes were dilated, and Gilray suspect ed drugs. As a fashionable doctor, lie knew the symptoms. Certainly the Princess had disap peared into the fortune-teller's tent a few minutes before in full possession of all her faculties, and wearing all those magnificent jewels. -And here she was now with not a single stone in her hair or on her corsage. It was no time to stand on ceremony. Gil ray laid his hand on the Princess's shoulder and shook her sharply. "Tell what has happened," lie de manded.
