Despite the {{olden harvest he- has produced, Bull Lea probably would be the first to admit that he was no Man O'War in his run- IIIIIK days.

The AKL's League for Political Action, ufler interviewing McMath and his opponent, Chancelor Francis Cherry, said "it was the unanimous opinion of the board that Governor McMuth's program is the best for the state of Arkansas."

Chairman of the board C. W. Mowerv of Hot Springs said that neither candidate made any promises to labor and that the union did not seek to exact any promises.

Uiati ibutcit by King Kcntim-s Syuilicut CHAPTER THIRTEEN "MAYBE it's Just another of Leonis' slick moves," Slim said hopefully. "It'd be like him to sell another man's land to some fool that wouldn't know thc difference. Looks like you need me morc'n ever. I'll sure get back fast." "All right, Slim. We'll meet you at the rancho after we come buck from Loa Angeles, If we get a ranch, w o'l 1 w o r It 11. 11 w e haven't—" Ho shrugged eloquently. "There's a big tiro somewhere oft in the mountains," Slim said as ho kicked off tho brake and shouted tho horses into motion. Tho wagon gathered speed on the downgrade and soon disappeared around tho bend. Hal and Blalse had mounted and galloped along the road. "Slim said there was a Ore, Hal, could be most anywhere, but I'd like to make sure." They wound through thc mountains at a fast pace. They came out on the flnal ridge and immediately saw tho dirty gray cloud high against the southern sky. Hal could see it was a big fire, burning deeper Into the distant Santa Monicas toward the ocean. Ho jerked arotfnd when he heard Blaise's exclamation. The man's tycs were wide, his face stricken. "That's us!" Blatsa grimly rated the spurs and rocketted down the last slope. Hal raced to catch up with him and both rode at breakneck speed through the village and out into the Valley beyond. As they watched, sudden bright flares and billowing columns of black smoke marked where big clumps of sumac burned fiercely. Over It all was the gray-yellow •moke ot the sagebrush, flaming along the mountain slopes. Already he could see the black carpet of ruin the tire left behind it, They reached the highway, plunged across. Blalse turned Into the ranch road, racing up it to the narrow opening of the canyon, through the portal. He reined tn, (ace suddenly white. The ranch house was only smoldering, hot ashes, the chimney standing grim and black above the ruins. Blaise scarcely heard Hal rein in beside him, or the man's amazed oath. Tha corral was gone. Only the decrepit bunkhouae remained. Leonla had returned an answer to his challenge. They turned toward that portion of tha ranch yard that the flames had mUsed. Hal searched the corral white Blalse went directly to tha bunkhouse. He pushed op«n Uie door, saw that th« dust on th* floor had been undisturbed. He worked down tho slop* and at last Hopped, calling HaL -Horaa, »t l«a*t tare* ot them. Th»y stood her* while tae riders *»t th* ftr*." Hal hitch«4 §t hi* gun ^t — " - «8ough lot ««, •tudyfcuf thj atvi tracks, then lifted his head and looked back at the smoke, now further away beyond the ridges. "Maybe it's good enough for me, and you, Hal, but wo need more—a lot more." "Why, man—" "Prool for you and me," Blaise cut in swiftly. "But Leonis hog tied me once before. Maybe he's waiting for us to come riding in to get his hide. I'm not going scalp-hunting without better proof. Any three riders could've made these tracks, Hal . . . Scorpion riders, -pilgrims passing through, maybe some of Vasquez's ridge-runners if they're in the neighborhood—or even Raikes and some Montanas riders. Who were they?" "Scorpion!" Hal snapped, "I'd back that bet," Blaise nodded, "But I can't prove it. Leonis could kill us-out of hand if we went after him . . . what could we prove outside them tracks? I'll have hard facts before I jump him. I've had enough ot guards and cells and stone walls." Hal grumbled but subsided. He turned back toward the house and distastefully surveyed the ruins. "So what do we do? Give up?" "No," Blaise said so sharply that Hal jerked his head around. "We can build a corral and live in the shack. We got the land—" "If Thatcher'll let you have It," Hal snapped. "We'll check on that. Maybe it's not gone. Scorpion • or Las Montanas won't drive me out." They rode grimly out of the canyon and back along the trail that wound down to the Valley. On the spine of the last ridge, Blalse drew rein and his eyes coldly swept over the Valley, coming to rest for a moment on the low ridges that hid Calabasas. "Looks like no one was inter* ested tn the Are," he said evenly. He folded, his hands pn the sad- dlehorn and leaned forward on them. "Of course, it was up in the hills and folks let 'em burn out." "But your rancho's up there. They knew you'd come back." "They knew I'd come back," Blaise nodded. "Leonis knew it, the Thatchers knew it No one come." "They expected it." Hal snapped. "Or didn't car*." Blauw added. There's always that." He stralgened and touched the horse's flank* with bis spurs and set his face toward Loa Angeles. Anger gradually left him, giving way to an ever-increasing mood of despondency. H* had tho dull, crushed feeling that perhaps he ha4 been a fool and « dreamw all along, that he faced too great a ;ask against too many odds. Oven this present Journey appeared useless. H* wouW only tad mere urouhto to th* dtafea&t PuftblQ of jdfr AAM^K* ' < He sank deeper In his thoughts, picking over the factors arrayed against him one by one, trying honestly to evaluate them and, even more, himself and his chances. Then, unaccountably, hia thoughts swung to Rennie Thatcher. He recalled how she had looked on the stage, a tall and stately girl. He saw her then as she had been at Las Montanas, still tall, now lovely in Jeans and shirt She had looked so shocked and disbelieving when her father had accused him of being a murderer. And when he did not deny th* charge, he could again clearly see the quick flash of emotion, gone in a second, and then detestation. It would happen a hundred times again in his life unless he found* who had killed Chavez. He dwelt on that killing as he rode toward the mountains that cut the Valley from the coastal plain.- Chavez had been a sneaking bully, a man who spoke loudly of his own worth, while he ran off a head or two of his neighbor's beef on dark nights. Blaise had lost a couple of steers and had trailed them to Chavez's disreputable rancfteria in thq< shadow of the Chatsworth rocks. He had found the steers, and Chavez, bkating swift and frightened lies, all the bravado gone. Blalse had flattened him a couple gf times and then kicked the gun from the man's hand, when Chavez tried to draw and kill him. Blalse had jerked the man to his feet "You'll draw on the wrong man some day and he'll slap a bullet between your eyes. If I ever catch you anywhere near my, range or wearing a gun, you'll be In bed for a month." He had driven the stolen ste»rs back to his rancho. There ha,d been trouble before with Chavei; Paul Case and the others knew at it Leonis had undoubtedly known, too. Blaise's lips curled angrily as i thpught how easy it had been for Leonis to move quietly in. Fie or a Scorpion man had killed, Chavez two nights later. ThV man's gun and belt had b**n found in Blaise's rancho whil* h* rode th* hills. Leonis and some of the Scorpion crew had captured Blaise and taken him directly to Los Angeles and tft* m Paul, Melanie and, tfe« others bad testified for him, but Jie prosecution had used tft* known (acts of the bad blood between Blaise and Chavez, the Mlt uid gun to convince a jury. TM, [udg* had given a life sentenfle. [t bad been that e*sy.
