Ted didn't understand, and he felt some-
thing hostile to himself in the burly man half
a dozen feet away; but since Peggy bad said
she couldn't go because she had an engage-
ment with Dan there seemed nothing for him
to do except say, " O! Very well, then;
we can go later."
NO one said anything to that, and after
an embarrassed instant he repeated, " Very
well. I'll send the car back whereupon
he walked over to the west door, went
out and told the man to take the car back
to the garage. He didn't understiuid what
had just happened: he didn't like it; but there
seemed nothing else for liim to do, and so
after standing out there a moment he walked
aimlessly away in the direction the car had
In the hall, Peggy was much more at sea
than Ted—-quite Incurably at a loss and em-
barrassed. It all came back to her then—
the scene up ln the Judge's study when Dan-
forth had warned her and she had felt as
though the sky had fallen on her. Up there
in Danforth's presence, as he held her hand,
she had loved him and trusted him and what
he said had impressed her mind as though
It were stamped upon it with his own image.
She had left the study meaning to go and
lie down, but there at the head of the stairs
had beer. Ted waiting for her. And he had
immediately told her, in intimate secrecy, a
most startling piece of news, being himself
much excited over it. As she listened to
him, looking into the young, eager face that
she had kissed and hearing the tones of the
voice that had first said " Sweetheart" to
her, somehow—rather inexplicably and
rather shamefully for herself, she thought—
that image which Danforth had stamped
upon her mind insensibly all faded out and
another image took Its place. Without real-
izing what she was about she just naturally
loved and trusted Ted again. And, swvpt
away by his startling news, she clean for-
got about Danforth and very readily took
up with Ted'i; project to turn this tremen
dous news to account.
All of which now seemed to make her a
mere thistle-down creature, blown by even-
Wind, without weight or stability—for she
had promised Danforth. So now, left oione
with him in the hall, she felt a great con-
fusion and humility; but as she couldn't ex-
plain she only murmured again:
" I forgot, Dan. I'm sorry. Forgive me."
It seemed to Danforth that she was dazed,
almost like a person partly hypnotized. He
rumbled, kindly, " He tier go lie down a bit,
" I will," she said helplessly and threw off
Without speaking again, Danforth put on
a hat, selected a stout stick and went oct the
west door tn Ted's tracks.
Nothing, it seemed, would answer, nothing
would save her. The girl couldn't under-
plane He wondered if there had been a sort
of hypnotism, and that seemed not improb-
able He had begun with the idea of being
quite fair to Ted Pennell, but now, for the
man whose tracks be was following, he felt
a perfect hate. A chap who went about
beatinp women, gripping their white throats
in brute fingera. He saw again Katey's dead
lace and Edith's living face, with the marks;
and than sweetest Peggy! But that should
It could hardly be .said be was thinking at
all. He was Just following the man for
whom he felt the perfect hate—a man who
was imminently mortal to him like a rattle-
snake coiled and on the point of striking. In
ihat perfect hate, as over a coiled snake,
one need do little thinking.
Walking beyond the south end of the
houae. he pulled his hat lower on his head
•nd inclined his body slightly, for the boom-
ing south wind struck him ponderably. Me-
chanically turning hla eyee seaward he saw
the spray flung high above the rock rtm
of the shore and hla ear caught a deeper
ton* than that made by the rushing wind
and dashing waves—the steady roar of the

He had taken but a few more steps when
he eaw two figures on the roadway some
distance ahead of him. One of them waa Ted
Pennell. The other waa Ion fc necked and
slope-shouldered, ln & light colored suit, a
cap pulled down over Its tall head, bamboo
stick in its hand. Danforth recognized the
man as the fool named Thorp, a relative of
the furnace man, who had put them on the
track in the affair of Katey. The man waa
speaking to Ted and pointing toward the sea.
For several days now 8amuel Thorp had
been little by little venturing back Into his
old familiarity with Overlook Houae. Noth-
ing had happened to him ln consequence of
any imprudent conversation that he might
have indulged In; and then, latterly, ho had
taken courage from the friendship of his
new acquaintance, Mr. Eastman, whom he
knew well enough—trust him for that!—to
be a detective. Io venturing back to Over-
look House he sort of feit the detective's
shield and bucklcr; so now, he was rather at
home there once more. Meeting Ted Pennell
on the road this blustery day he favored
him with some information. And then, see-
ing Danforth Crane approach, the old uneasi-
ness overcame him. He terminated his con-
versation with Ted Pennell and moved off.
And Ted Pennell Immediately left the road,
walking eastward toward the sea. After a
moment Danforth also left the road, turning
toward the sea, A little later there seemed
to be no doubt about the direction in which
Ted was going—no doubt that he was going
to the pot. Danforth then modified his course
a little so as to make, also, for the pot—
which would be boiling furiously now. Ap-
parently there was no need for Danforth to
think; apparently somebody was managing
the affair for him.
Country folks, with a fondness for Satanic
nomenclature, had long ago called it the
Devil's Coffee Pot, and as though the puta-
tive designer had wished to have the place
to himself a long heap of loose rock hadijjeen
thrown up, like a screen, to the west of it.
As Danforth approached, the pot's roar rose
louder and he saw Ted Pennell slip around
the rock screen. Except to an observer close
at hand, or out at sea, all that went on be-
hind that screen was hidden.
Danforth himself rounded the screcn. On
the other side of it the roar strained hla
ear drums, but the pot itself was still mostly
hidden, for the crag billowed up somewhat
and in order to gain the pot's edge one had to
go down through a little crevice in the gran-
ite. Danforth went down through the crev-
ice and saw Ted six feet away, stancLn,,
on the very brink of the pot, looking down
into the tumult of water.
Demoniacal, and worth the Devil's best ln
that line, it looked today at high tide and
under this high south wind—a furious seeth
and swirl of rushing water, as wave after
wave roared in and couldn't get out; here
churned into dancing milk, there showing
faint, vanishing streaks of green; all whirl-
ing and tearing at the rocks lis though in a
fury to escape; the whole surface boiling up
nearly to the brim, subsiding and boiiing up
again, yet every part of the surface in an
incessant heaving, pouring and tumbling of
Its own—like a confined heart of ocean pant-
ing in uncontrollable pa.«sion.
Whatever foolhardy speculations Ted Pen-
nell may have Indulged in on other days, no
man could live ln that today. Ted stood at
the very brink, watching. A featherweight
would upset his equilibrium, and this spot
was as hidden from human eye as though
Overlook and all the coast habitations had
been a thousand miles a Way.
Danforth stepped nearer—no danger of a
footfall being heard in this tumult. As he
did so Ted—already balanced only by a hair
—stooped a little a-s though to look more in-
tently. Mechanically Danforth looked also,
and on the opposite side of the pot made
out a dark object in the water, not a rock,
but moving. There was instantly something
about that object half seen and half veiled-
something about its form and texture—that
arretted Danforth's. eyes, with a sharp
clutch, so to speak.
The moving object did not sink or disap-
pear; it only blurred and grew indistinct,
under a thicker veil of water. Then, as a
eporUng porpoise rolls an arched hack up
into view for a deliberate second and van-
ishes, this«dark, moving object came up on
the surface and in the three seconds before It
sank completely from sight both the behold-
ers knew certainly that it waa the body of a
all the furious motion ln which It was Im-
mersed affected It not at all. Its dellberate-
ness seemed to say that It was in no hurry
whatever, having all time and mil eternity
ln which to complete its journey.
Again they saw It, but aa before the face
persistently downward and hidden —as
though not Interested ln any possible watch-
ers on the bank.
"We can get It'" Ted repeated, ln a
about. "You come here."
He plucked Danforth's coat as though
at Danforth, and laughed, wiping the water
off his wet face with an arm as wet.
" Sort of nasty!" he shouted, meaning the
grip of the pot. After a moment he added,
"Guess we'll have to call Louis." Both of
them, on the way to the pot, had noticed the
gardener working at some shrubbery.
But neither of them made a move to call
Louis. Danforth was not making a move
ln any respect, but was oddly cut off from
moving as though his will had been Insu-
lated. There was a certain half formulated
v> x • ' y --..v <•
Stooping and ttraining kit eyea, Tod indittincily mad« oat
a darker patch beneath m veil of water.
Ted took a step backward, turned his head,
and saw Danforth standing two feet away,
and seemed not much surprised.
" That's a man!" he shouted, to make him-
self heard above the roar.
Danforth nodded, undoubtedly it was the
body of a man.
Many times, In mare foolhardy adven-
turousness, Ted had studied the currents of
the pot, tossing in sticks and logs and watch-
ing their behavior. He knew that, while to a
casual eye the seeth seemed mere chaos,
there was at high tide and for compara-
tively bulky objects, a steady drift round and
round the edge. He was obviously excited
now and be shouted again to Danforth, " It
will come this way; we can get It!"
Together, then, they staod watching, and
in a minute or so the dark object again rolled
a shoulder, half a back, Into view. In eccen-
tric fashion it was making the circuit of the
pot, face down. For some minutes they
caught no glimpse of the object they sought,
but when they saw it again it had made
another stage of Its journey. Very deliberate
it was in that ghastly pilgrimage as though
there was no question of his taking charge
of the enterprise, and when they had moved
two or three feet he explained, in the neces-
sary high tones, " You sit down here and
bracasyour hand against that; then give me
the other hand."
Danforth comprehended what he meant
and obeyed, in an odd sort of suspense, as
though he had nothing to do but obey. He
seated his heavy body ln a little depression
in the rim of the pot where he could brace
his left hand against a higher ledge, his legs
hanging over the rim. When the water be-
neath them subsided a little, following the
ln-rush of a wave, Ted lowered himself over
the rim until his feet rested on the wet and
jagged rock below. Then with his left hand
he clasped Danforth's right, bracing him-
self as well as he could against the next
inrushing wave. It drenched him to his
knees, but he managed to keep his footing.
Thus they waited for the pilgrim. It
would be Ted's task to lean out, stoop, and
seize the body while Danforth held him. A
strange situation, truly—considering all the
circumstances. That thought drifted Into
The pilgrim rolled Into view, showing them
Its back; but too far oft. The water boiled
over it again. Then, stooping and straining
his eyes, Ted indistinctly made out a darker
patch beneath a veil of water. His hand
gripped Danforth's with all its strength.
Leaning out, stooping further, he made a
grab. An incoming wave washed him from
his slippery foothold and he was down ln
the water, with only the grip of Danforth's
hand. But the water laid hold of him,
pulling fiercely. At best all the strength of
two muscular hands and arms waa needed.
With the other hand Ted grabbed Danforth's
foot, and so held on while another wave ran
over him. Then, as the water subsided,
Danforth pulling and pulling himself, he re-
gained his footing and climbed up on the
rock rtm beside his companion, drenched
even to his hair. Ha got his breath, looked
speculation in Ms mind, however, to this
effect; What was the difference between
throwing a man into the pot and just letting
go of a man who was already in the pot?
The latter expedient was, of course, incom-
parably the simpler and safer. That half-
formulated speculation went on in his mind,
without an answer. . . . Only when a
man risked his life on an errand of mercy
and voluntarily trusted himself to the grip
of Danforth's hand and that man was down
in the water fighting for his life, why Dan-
forth's hand simply wouldn't let go. On the
contrary, he had clung and pulled with all
his might, Such were the facts that had
happened, and for which he had no particu-
Ted, drenched and beginning to shiver in
the wind, was frowning at the pot. " If I
could only use both my hands," be shouted to
Danforth. Then an idea struck him. " L«t'a
see your belt," he bellowed.
Danforth, the same passive Instrument as
before, took off his belt. Ted examined It
a moment and gald, " Sure, that will hold
me! My belt's strong, too."
He and Danforth had ttoth assumed that
the man in the pot was dead. The complete
Inertness of the Immersed body had seemed
to proclaim that, and Ted knew that at this
state of the water.a body might have drifted
there for two hours or more. So he hadn't
thought of saving a life. Ha was moved,
however, by a common human pity. Some
unfortunate—perhaps a tourist—had ven-
tured too close, made a misstep, and lost
his life. That indefinitely connoted other
people, such aa a wife and children, for
whom the misstep would be poignant. Ted
could claim the sanction of pity; yet If he
had been brought to Judgment and asked
why ha persisted ln trying again Instead of
summoning Louia, and If he had carefully
searched In his mind for an answer, he
would have had to confess that It was most-
ly a sporting instinct. He had undertaken
a difficult thing and he didn't like to give
up; he hated having the pot beat him.
Spatting his legs and arms to keep the blood
going, he watched for further appearance of
the body. Aa he had anticipated, It drifted
across Just below them and atarted Its cir-
cuit again. At longer or shorter intervals
they saw It
Hla Idea was to buckle Danforth'a belt
through his own at the back, making a long
loop of it, by which Danforth could hold him
while he had both hands free. Danforth
understood that and waited passively. By
that plan Once more Ted would be stooping
and leaning out over the pot with only Dan-
forth's grasp to sustain him, and this time
Ted wouldn't be clasping his hand. If his
fingers should relax a bit Ted would be down
In the pot Danforth waited passively.
But as they waited for that deliberate pil-
grimage to bring the object beneath them, a
new idea struck Ted. He called out " Maybe
we can bring him to! I'll call Louis!"
At once he sprang to his feet. Mechani-
cally Danforth looked around. So at prac-
tically the same time both of them saw,
sticking over the edge of the crevice by
which one gained the pot, a pair of sloping
shoulders clad ln light yellow plaid, a long
neck, a long h«ad with a cap pulled down on
it, a loose mouth, and a pair of pale eyes, one
of which had a cast in it giving a wall eyed
After all, upon seeing Ted Pennell make
off toward the coffee pot and Danforth Crane
go In the same direction, Citizen Samuel
Thorp's curiosity had overcome his nervous-
ness in respect to Danforth and he had fol-
In a fla^h Danforth understood that the
fool had been watching them, and that If he
had let go of Ted's hand the fool would
have been a witness to It . . . Truly, the
devil's own coffee pot; yet the devil didn't
have it all to himself. When a man's hand
clung to his for life or death some way he
couldn't let go; but had to grip and pull with
all his might.
While this was flashing In his mind Ted
was bawling to Ram Thorp, " Go tell Loula
to come here! Tell him to hurry!"
Citizen Thorp was rather glad to get him-
self away so easily. Turning back to Dan-
forth, Ted explained in a shout:
" Better have Louis. That Idiot Thorp Is
When Louts, In obedience to this summons
—and 8till followed at a discreet distance by
Samuel Thorp—stepped down through the
crevice to the edge of the pot, he saw Dan-
forth seated, holding a leather loop, and Ted
Pennell on the slippery rock below pulling
a man's body out of the water. The body was
hard to handle and Louis hastened to help.
Two days before he himself might have
pushed Ted Pennell into the pot; but since
then he had heard something—which he was
necessarily keeping strictly to himself—that
quite altered his feeling. He now lent a
hand heartily. With Ted's precarious foot-
ing, handling that heavy, inert object was
not easy. The three of them finally got it up
over the rim and stretched out on Its face.
As Ted climbed up, I-ouls turned the body
over and they saw that It was Lester Hilton.
Ted and Danforth looked at each other a
moment and there was an odd kind of loath*
ness in Ted's voice as he said:
" Well—we'll see If we can bring him to."
He knew the " first aid " rules and they set
to work—lifting the limp body by the middle
to expel the water, stripping off the wet
coat, chafing the limbs, working the arms.
For perhaps twenty minutes they worked
diligently, with hardly & word except a brief
direction from Ted. Then Ted ceased and
said, definitely, " It's no use," and stood up.
For a moment he looked down at the white
and handsome face, quite unbruised from
the pilgrimage among the rocks. Then for
an instant he and Danforth looked at each
other. Some way Danforth was plagued by
the Idea of another body which might have
been lying there.
"We may as well leave I/wls here with
him," said Ted. " Somebody's got to tell
In that passivity—that odd blankness of
mind—which had come upon him of late,
Darrforth accepted this without comment;
only motioning toward his belt, which still
dangled at Ted's back; then unbuckling It
and putting It around his own waist aa ho
and Trd started away. Ted also seemed to
have nothing to say. They tramped toward
the bouse. After they had been tramping
two or three minutes, Ted looked around at
Danforth to say, in grave confidence:
" H« killed lvatay. I knew it as soon as
you told me she'd been choked and beaten.
He beat Edith today and choked her. I
caught him at It." Now that Hilton was
dead It seemed to him—without reasoning
about it—right o no ugh to say that, although
he would not have said It before.
" When Peggy and I drove up to the house
from the station," Ted went on, " I left her
downstairs while I went up with my bag.
I was passing Edith's door and I heard some-
thing—a cry. you know; but it sounded
choked. I opened the door. He had her by
the throat, beating her. Of course, I started
for him; but he ran out through the dressing
room to tha next bedroom and got away. She
fell aa aoon as he let go of her. I picked her
up. That'a how I got my coat bloody. She
told me not to aay anything, and lock the
door. . . . Naturally she didn't want any-
body to see her. I wouldn't have said any-
thing, only he's dead."
Danforth had nothing to say to that.
"And then," Ted added, "aa aoon aa the
Judge told me Katey had been choked and
beaten, I knew be did It There wouldn't be
more than one white man ln the same neigh-
borhood who would beat and choke •
That reasoning .Bounded hardly conclusive
to Danforth, but he had to acknowledge that
a young man who reasoned In that manner-
supposing him to be sincere about It—could
not be altogether depraved. He felt stupid.
Only an hour ago hla mind had held a per-
fectly clear, firm pattern of thla affair, but
now the pattern aeemed to grow confused.
He heard himself aaylng, dully enough,
"Hilton waa drunk today."
Ted glanced around at blm and commented,
"He must have bean. . . . Probably ha
came down here and Jumped In."
" Likely," Danforth replied.
"That Sam Thorp—up there on the road,
you know—told me he saw a man come down
here to the pot an hour and a half ago or
so, and the man hadn't come away. He'a a
fool, you know. So I went to look It up; but
I had no idea it was Hilton."
Danforth then understood the little panto-
mime he had seen on the road—Thorp apeak,
ing to Ted and pointing toward the sea.
" I told Peggy that Hilton killed her," Ted
said after a moment. That, Indeed, had been
the startling news he had Imparted to her at
the head of the stairs as she came out of tha
Hut in a more or less confused way Dan-
forth had been thinking that statement over
during the last few minutes, and he was re-
membering that'Lester Hilton and himself
came up on the same train from New York
Friday night—the day after Katey disap-
peared So it seemed fairly impossible that
Hilton had been here on that fatal Thursday.
He kept that thinking to himself, however,
and nothing more waa said between them
until they reached the house.
Peggy had meant to go and lie down %
while, as Danforth had advised her to; but
the commotion in her mind wouldn't permit
that She had aimlessly remained down-
stairs, and so presently she saw Ted and
Danforth approaching the house together
from the direction of the sea. As they got
nearer she noticed the state of Ted's clothes
and ran to the hall. When the men stepped
ln she was at the door.
" Why, you're soaked! Did you fall in?"
Ted spoke to Danforth: "You tell her.
She may as well tell Edith. I'll go change
my clothes." With that he went upstairs.
Danforth told her, very soberly: " Hilton's
drowned—in the coffee pot. Louis is down
there with the body."
l'eggy Breathed " O-h-h-h ! " Then in a
hushed murmur, " Is be really dead, Dan?"
" Yes," said Danforth. " We tried to bring
him to, but it was no good."
They had before them the bare fact of
death—sudden and violent. But each of them
had in mind certain other things, Danforth
had just heard that the dead man had beaten
his wife; Ted had told Peggy he killed Katey,
Those other things were, so to speak, shock
" Edith must be told," said Danforth after
" Yes," Peggy assented. It seemed to bo
a woman's task. "Shall I tell her?"
" You can do it best" Danforth replied.
Peggy thought of it a moment and wetted
her dry Hps. " Do you know how It hap-
pened?" For presumably Edith would ask
" No. A fellow named Thorp saw him go
down there and told Ted—an hour or more
afterwards. Ted went down. ... 1 went,
too. Ills body was floating around in the
pot Tod got down on the rocks below whilo
1 held him and got the body. We worked
half an hour to bring him to. Probably he'd
been in the water an hour and a half."
Peggy wetted her lip3 again— passing for
the plunge, so to speak—and said, "Well,
111 tell her."
Going up to Edith's room, she was remem-
bering over again what Ted had told hor
when she found him waiting for her at the
head of tho stairs—that Hilton had killed
Katey; that he was sure of it. He hadn't
told her why he was sure, but only that it
was so. Then they had tried tc*jether ta
recall that Thursday—to see if they could!
bring up some further connection with Hil-
ton. And Peggy couldn't remember that
Hilton had been at the house at all that
day- -was almost sure he didn't come up until
the end of the week. That was a bit discon-
certing, although Ted still insisted that Hil-
ton killed the maid. Thinking back himself,,
Ted presently recalled that toward noon thati
Thursday he hail overtaken Edith on tho.
rood from Stony Cove wearing Katey's hati
and cloak—that miserable afTair which !ia<T
got him Into all the trouble with Peggy bo4
cause he was In honor bound not to tell. '
It had always seemed strange to him that
Edith Hilton should be going to Stony Covo
in that disguise. Now, with this firm pre-
possession as to Hilton's guilt In respect of
Katey—a prepossession built on the bedrock
of fact that Hilton choked and beat anothea
woman—It occurred to him that Hilton must)
have been at Stony Cove that day, and Editfy
had gone there to aea him. He knew tho|
station agent at Stony Cove, and proposed!
to take a photograph of Hilton up there, to-
see if the agent could Identify it aa the likei

Boston or New York—Stony Cove being a
forlorn little station where comparatively,
few strangers came. It was upon that a<W
