Whilst Pinto was putting the finishing touches to his scheme of flight, the colonel paced his room, whistling the „Soldiers‘ Chorus“ jerkily. He was restless and nervous, and rendered all the more irritable by nike free run 2 review the disappearance of his servant, a minor member of the gang, who had been a participant in every act of villainy, and who had been in charge of nike blazers sale the arrangements for the abduction of Maisie White. Twice in the course of the evening he wandered through the hall, opened the outer door, and looked out on to the landing.
On the first occasion there was nothing to see, but on the second it was only by the narrowest margin of time that he failed to detect a dark figure moving noiselessly up the stairs and disappearing on to the second landing.

Then, when no sound reached him, he moved to the door of Pinto’s flat, opened it, deposited the suit-case which he was carrying in the hall, and closed the door softly behind him.
He was within for about a quarter of an hour, then he reappeared, and still carrying his suit-case, passed swiftly down the stairs and out into the street. The clock struck half-past nine as he disappeared, and a quarter of an hour later Stafford King received by special messenger a communication which gave him something to think ab cheap nike blazers out. He read it through twice, then called up the First Commissioner and gave him the gist of the communication.
„That’s the third time we’ve had this sort of message,“ he said.
„The others have proved right,“ said the Commissioner’s voice, „why shouldn’t this?“
„B ut it se nike blazers ems incredible,“ said Stafford in perplexity. „We’ve been watching these people for years and we’ve never found them with the goods.“
„I should certainly act on it, King, if I were you,“ said the Commissioner. „Let me know what happens. Of course, you may make a mistake, but you must take a chance on that.“
Pinto nike free running shoes had a lot of business to do at the theatre that night. For a week he had not banked the theatre’s takings, but had converted them into paper money, and now he took from his safe the last penny he could carry. It was half-past eleven when he came to his Club, where supper had been prepared for him. He paid the bill from notes he had tak nike free trainers uk en from the bank that day. Presently the waiter came back.
„I beg your pardon, sir, but the cashier says that this note is a wrong ‚un.“
„A wrong ‚un?“ said Pinto in surpri nike free se, and took it in his hand.
There was no doubt whatever that the man was right. It was the most obvious forgery he had ever handled.
„Then I’ve been sold,“ he smiled; „here’s another.“
He took the second note and examined it. That also was bad, as he could tell at a glance. In the tail pocket of his dress-coat he had the money he had taken from the theatre and was able to settle the bill. He was worried on the journey back to the flat. He had drawn a hundred pounds from the bank that morning in five- nike free review pound notes. He remembered putting them into his pocket-book and had no occasion to disturb them since.

„Stafford King it is. I have a warrant for your arrest, Silva, on a charge of forging and uttering. Bring him up to his rooms.“
The colonel heard the noise on the stairs and came to the door. He stood, a silent spectator, watching with unmoved face the procession as it passed up to the floor above.
„I want your key,“ said Stafford, and humbly the Portuguese handed it to him.
Stafford opened the door and snapped on the light.
„Bring him in,“ he said to the detective who held Pinto. „What room is this?“
