which in a month’s time might but serve to conceal the stark ruin within.
To him it was a night of tremendous tragedy, and for the second time in his life in the numbness induced by the greater peril and the greater anxiety he failed to wince at the thought of t tiffany co terminal 5 he danger in which Oliva stood.
Indeed, analysing his sensations she seemed to him on this occasion less a victim than a fellow-worker and he found a strange comfort in that thought of partnership.
The _Megaphone_ buildings blazed with light when the car drew up to the door, messenger-boys were hurrying through the swing-doors, the two great elevators were running up and down without pause. The grey editor with a gruff voice threw over a bundle of flimsies.
„Here are the market reports,“ he growled, „they are not very encouraging.“
Beale read them and whistled, and the editor eyed him keenly.
„Well, what do you make tiffany and co of it?“ he asked the detective. „Wheat at a shilling a pound already. God knows what it’s going to be to-morrow!“
„Any other news?“ asked Beale.
„We have asked Germany to explain why she has prohibited the export of wheat and to give us a reason for the stocks she holds and the steps she has taken during the past two months to accumulate reserves.“
„An ultimatum?“
„Not exactly an ultimatum. There’s nothing to tiffany co engagement rings go to war about. The Government has mobilized the fleet and the French Government has partially mobilized her army. The question is,“ he said, „would war ease the situation?“
Beale shook his head.
„The battle will not be fought in the field,“ he said, „it will be fought right here in London, in all your great towns, in Manchester, Coventry, Birmingham, Cardiff. It will be fought in New York and in a thousand townships between the Pacific and the Atlantic, and if the German scheme comes off we shall be beaten before a shot is fired.“
„What does it mean?“ asked the editor, „why is everybody buying wheat so frantically? There is no shortage. The harvests in the United States and Canada are good.“
„There will be no harvests,“ said Beale solemnly; and the journalist gaped at him.
Chapter 32 The End Of Van Heerden
Dr. van Heerden expected many things and was prepared for contin tiffany co 925 gencies beyond the imagination of the normally minded, but he was not prepared to find in Oliva Cresswell a pleasant travelling-companion. When a man takes a girl, against her will, from a pleasant suite at the best hotel in London, compels her at the peril of death to accompany him on a motor-car ride in the dead of the night, and when his offence is a duplication of one which had been committed less than a week before, he not unnaturally anticipates tears, supplications, or in the alternative a frigid and unapproachable silence.
To his amazement Oliva was extraordinarily cheerful and talkative and even amusing. He had kept Bridgers at the door of the car whilst he investigated the pawn-broking establishment of Messrs. Rosenblaum Bros., and had returned in triumph to discover that the girl who up to then had been tacitu tiffany co bracelet rn and uncommunicative was in quite an amiable mood tiffany co careers .
„I used to think,“ she said, „that motor-car abductions were the invention of sensational writers, but you seem to make a practice of it. You are not very original, Dr. van Heerden. I think I’ve told you that before.“
He smiled in the darkness as the car sped smoothly through the deserted streets.
„I must plead guilty to being rather unoriginal,“ he said, „but I promise you that this little adventure shall not end as did the last.“
„It can hardly do that,“ she laughed, „I can only be married once whilst Mr. Beale is alive.“
„I forgot you were married,“ he said suddenly, then after a pause, „I suppose you will divorce him?“
„Why?“ she asked innocently.
„But you’re not fond of that fellow, are you?“
„Passionately,“ she said calmly, „he is my ideal.“
The reply took away his breath and certainly silenced him.
„How is this adventure to end?“ she demanded. „Are you going to maroon me on a desert island, or are you taking me to tiffany co Germany?“
„How did you know I am trying to get t o Germany?“ he asked sharply.
„Oh, Mr. Beale thought so,“ she replied, in a tone of indifference, „he reckoned that he would catch you somewhere near the coast.“
„He did, did he?“ said the other calmly. „I shall deny him that pleasure. I don’t intend taking you to Germany. Indeed, it is not my intention to detain you any longer than is necessary.“
„For which I am truly grateful,“ she smiled, „but wh tiffany co outlet fake y detain me at all?“
„That is a stupid question to ask when I am sure you have no doubt in your mind as to why it is necessary to keep you close to me until I have finished my work. I think I told you some time ago,“ he went on, „that I had a great scheme. The other day you called me a Hun, by which I suppose you meant that I was a German. It is perfectly true that I am a German and I am a patriotic German. To me even in these days of his degradation the Kaiser is still little less than a god.“
His voice quivered a little, and the girl was struck dumb with wonder that a man of such tiffany uk sale intelligence, of such a wide outlook, of such modernity, should hold to views so archaic.
„Your country ruined Germany. You have sucked us dry. To say that I hate England and hate America–for you Anglo-Saxons are one tiffany sale in your soulless covetousness–is to express my feelings mildly.“
„But what is your scheme?“ she asked.
„Briefly I will tell you, Miss Cresswell, that you may understand that to-night you accompa cheap tiffany ny history and are a participant in world politics. America and England are going to pay. They are going to buy corn from my country at the price that Germany can fix. It will be a price,“ he cried, and did not attempt to conceal his joy, „which will ruin the Anglo-Saxon people more effectively than they ruined Germany.“
„But how?“ she asked, bewildered.
„They are going to buy corn,“ he repeated, „at our price, corn which is stored in Germany.“
„But what nonsense!“ she said scornfully, „I don’t know very much about harvests and things of that kind, but I know that most of the wo tiffany uk rld’s wheat comes from America and from Russia.“
„The Russian wheat will be in German granaries,“ he said softly, „the American wheat–there will be no American wheat.“
And then his calmness deserted him. The story of the Green Rust burst out in tiffany co jewelry sale a wild flood of language which was half-German and half-English. The man was beside himself, almost mad, and before his gesticulating hands she shrank back into the corner of the car. She saw his silhouette against the
