'Well, he left here for Waterbridge an hour ago.'

Waterbridge was a small town 150 kilometres from the

city. The city police at once sent four different photographs

of the thief to the police in Waterbridge.

the police in Waterbridge. 'We have caught three of the

men,' they said happily, 'and we will catch the fourth this evening, we think'.
