"You don't trust anybody, do you?" she said. "Sure 1 do — after the first SO years." I started to put a few more knots in the cords which held the bags closed. I never wai a Boy Scout so far .as knots go. I believe in quantity irather than quality and my reef 'knots somehow end up as a bunch ;of knobbly granny knots. I guess I that was why I spotted something. f Each bag on the counter had been jclosed witb a neat, solitary reef itcnot. and nothing more. I Somebody had been monkeying with my samples. ! My first impulse was to point In out to Cory and ask her if she \ had any ideas on the subject. JTheo I thought it over and 6e- |Cided I'd learn more if I kept my mouth shut and my eyes open. It j wasn't because I didn't trust Cory. It was because she seemed to trust everybody. When w « got back to Dark Angel I made some excuse about wanting to drive up th« vaJley •arlv In the morning so she would leave me the key to the convertible. There wasn't much romance in th« air—we were both dog-tired—and. besides, all the way home 1 was trying to ngure angles. It was 2 o'clock to the morning when I'd Onished taking my third set at samples and 4 a. m. before I got to Sriscoe again. 1 had to sit around till 7 o'clock before the station opened for business, and then I put "Lol A" on the tags I'd made out the previous evening, and "Lot B" on the lags for the stuff I'd just brought in. I didn't want Erne making any mistakes about which was which. 1 got back to the boarding house in time for a late breakfast and then turned in for what sleep 1 could get ABOUT 3 o'clock in the afternoon I got up. shaved, ate another breakfast and dropped around to Ihe assay shed to see what Riggs had got for me. He gave me a sheet of paper with the figures, and it was pretty much what 1 had expected. The values for the different levels didn't vary more than four bits each way and the average for the whole thing worked out to 54.82 a ton. I shoved the paper in my pocket and sat down on a bo*. "What's your'fheory about this ore trouble?" I asked. He fidgeted a bit before he answered. "I couldn't sa>—1 hardly ever go underground—but from what I hear I guess the mine's playing out, Mr. McTaig." Second-hand guesses weren't much good to me. I pulled out and went over to the mill where I found Uncje Jake staring mournfully at a steam gauge. "When'i your nent train of loaded cars due out o( the mine!" I asked. He glanced ait hi* watch and figured it would oe any minute now. so we climbed up a ladder to where the light-gauge track ran out from the portal to the mill bunkers. The roar of the ball- mill was deafening and Uncle Jake had to shout in my ear. 'When the Bunkers are full like this we hold the stufl tn the cars." 1 understood what he meant Ore was being mined faster than it could be nilled, which was the reason they ran three shifts in the mill but only two in the min« A MOMENT later a battery locomotive crawled out of the mine, followed by a train of 10 loaded cars Th< driver nursed them along until he'd spotted them over the bunkers. He uncoupled, left them there, and beetled off to pick up 10 empties from a nearby spur. 1 moved along the catwalk and glanced at the contents of the cars. Nine of them contained mine-run low-grade, but the 10th contained high-grade 'from the paystreak. lovely stuff, running, from the looks »f it. around 30 or 40 bucks a ton in copper' alone. "Sweetener." Uncle Jake yelled in my ear. and pointed directly below us. 1 looked, down and saw where a plank partition made a separate bunker at one end. and this end compartment was filled with the high-grade. It was standard milling practice. You kept your 'millheads at a fairly constant value by feeding i< the rich stuff as required. We climbed down and Uncle Jake followed me into the comparative quiet o< the mill office. "It would be wonderful if you could find another vein for us, Mr. McTaig," he said. "At my age won't be easy to start all over again somewhere else." He tried for a smile but didn't quit* make M.
