The outline of a wooden hull slowly took form against the rosy glow. The "Reina" had not come to rest on the canyon bottom. Rather. Ihe galleon was wedged between the roek jaws of the chasm, almost 200 feet above their heads.

Her timber sides ripped the sister cliffs, but her oimd belly scorned the earth and ested on air alone. \ The sails and masts and most of he high stern had rotted away, exposing three layers of deck to heir gaze. Below the galleon near Barselou's temporary camp was a pile of rubble that hac ;allcn oyer the years. The heap was overgrown by the octopu vines of a green- succulent, but here trailed a rusty length of chain nnd there jutted a crumbling plank from the rudder. "There's enough to prove she ised to be a treasure ship, anyway," Trim's jubilant voice cried. His gaze sharpened. The sleeping form on the ground stirred, moaned and raised itself on its elbows. "Good morning, Mr. Barselou!" Trim greeted him. His voice was climbing back to th* octave the Conovers familiar with. to the noise of a dream castl crumbling about your ears.

Trim continued pleasantly. "So we had to separate for the lime being, as you were expecting a pair of Joneses. The cottage had been reserved for a week, with no mention of number or sex.
