CHAPTER VII. " Queenie—thank God you've come!" choked Beryl. It was past ten o'clock, night time, and Beryl, hearing a cab draw up, had hurried down to the front door. "How's mother?" asked Queenie. She was the colour of death, and was carrying her valise. She was wearing the dress she wore that afternoon in the assize court at Stilchester. It was all like a blurred nightmare, people with shadowy figures; her most distinct memory that of a kind, mo therly 'woman, who had helped her from the court,, put her into a cab, driven her to the single room she had taken in Stilchester, had promised to see Mr. Palmer and give all messages an.d a note to him, andy after the writing of a note, had driven her in a cab to the station. "How's mother?" "Oli. Queenie," Beryl was sobbing now, " so bad—we're not allowed in the room—two doctors—and they had to send for oxygen—they're giving mother oxygen now.

Medical experts, call ed respectively for the defence and the prosecution, had flatly disagreed on the svmptoms of the after effects of cer lain narcotics. Bank clerks and offi cials had gone into the figure side of , the case. A famous maker of safes and j strong rooms had given expert evi dence. Police and detectives had gone over the old ground, but more minutely than before the magistrates. Every effort had been made to trace Roy Standard; the description furnished by the prisoner had been more widely cir culated. and the bank had offered a re- I ward; but the man seemed to have van ished into thin air. The defence had failed to produce^ a single witness to prove such a man's presence m Hasted I on the night of the crime, as apart from the prisoner's uncorroborated statement.
