Edmunek Claussen._ J>rioi^eopyright, Stamford Pubneations, lnc_ THE irotch STORY: Capt Irving of the steamboat General Heath had some mysterious boxes aboard when early In the they contain he stops at Yuma 60's. He suspected rifles, since troops have been withdrawn from Arizona for service in the War Between the States, and the Apaches are terrorizing settlers. Crotch's bus! ness, however, Is not rifles, but taking miners up the Colorado to search for gold. Ill A tall dusty wagon stood.waiting on the street; others were rolling in with ungreased axles sqoaling shrilly. As Crotch's interest caught the scene he made out a gaunt cavalryman with yel low striped legs and black felt hat bearing the familiar device of crossed sabers. The' solider's interest was centered beyond, and now the edges of his -mouth -lifted in a were Sugar Logan the mill owner at La Paz and Jim Melott his engineer; he judged both would be men who lived true to (heir convictions. He came to room No. 11. glanced tip the hall and found it deserted, then !;nocksd on the panel and tried the handle. The door was unlocked. Major Murphy sat on the iron bed, smoking a cheroot. 'He was a wiry officer with a bold, bony nose and with stringers of gray in his hair The worked-down look on his face told what .Indian problems could do to a sldier. But there was steel in the major and he smiled as Crotch slipped inside. "Ah Crotch! I've been waiting for this!" "But why here?" the captain asked stiffly. "We meet at the Gila House because no one else muse hear what say." Crotch's gaze swept on, found the woman and followed her move ments in the blurred shadows beyond. She took no notice of the cavalryman, continuing her walk as though he never existed. This was the woman they called Queenie. Obviously she was not yet aware that Dreyfus awaited her in tha pastry shop, as he had said. She commenced slowly to cross the road toward the mud-walled shop where goods. she As baked and sold Crotch watched her she broke her stride in midstreet. Now she turned and, lifting her skirts higher, fairly ran toward the Gila House. Crotch's Kaze fastened on a figure leaning against the ramada's post support. This man was,the cause for Queenie altering against the her direction. The man leaning post was Radsliff Burke, a hand some fellow with a supero physique with luminous eyes taint of violence about them- He nad asae during the late then had }i(TRA SPECIAL BUY!

It was probably coincidental, but Burke had taken passage immediately after the mining machinery had been stowed aboard. Meaningful looks darted between man p.nd woman as Burke recognized Queenie. There was no greeting no smile to soften his handsome mouth. He wheeled snubbing her mercilessly, and passed through the hotel's thick- walled entranceway. Queenie stopped in her tracks. Crotch came _ f'.ghting off shock, "she had been hurt, deeply humiliated. Yet she smiled at Crotch, a momentary fiJimpse of pleasure before she gave way to her former hurt. He tipped his cap. "You ki\ow him, Queenie? You want me to teach him manners?" Her face was longish, with sad brown eyes. Her sensuous lips were nosv faintly quivering. "Rad- clifi Burke," she murmured, then turned. She paused with her back to him, es though uncertain. She was scarcely beyond her teens, "Is lie going upriver on the General Heath?" she asked barely ebove a whisper. Crotch thought about her ques tion, saw no harm in it and told ihe truth. Then Queenie walked on. She brought alive active regret in Crotch. A woman invariably loved the wrong man Its unfairness brought Crotch an anoying anger. His own youth Hashed back for him and he felt pity for Queenie. But his sympathy \\as infinitely more profound for Cal Preylus. Normally the major was a fair man, seldom asking the unreasonable; he was mild-mannered and considerably more friendly than the usual post commandant. But at the moment Crotch suspected the plans the major was formulat ing. He said heavily, "What needs saying can be quickly told. I don't fancy carrying your boxes to La Paz." A shadow of defeat darkened Murphy's eyes and was gone. "So you believe there's something wronjj with the shipment-" "A man hasn't hauled cargo all his life without knowing the dead weight of m i n 'ing machinery. Which your boxes are not:" "You think you know what they contain?" Crotch was still a moment. His convictions had nothing solid to build on. And -yet he read the correctness of his fears in the major's faintly sly glance. It sent anger c r .-a s Ih i n g through him. "They're rifles!" "Captain, do sit down! And don't raise your bull's voice. They're Springfield ,58's!" "You're not using me for your war!
