It was Kkely h* knew how t run the Dark Angel because he'< grown old with it. But put him ii unfamiliar surroundings and he'c be lost. He was the faithful serv ant, worn out in the service ot hi employer, and now facing disaster through no fault of hie own. Either that—or h* was a marvelous actor. But thoughts of Uncle Jake vanished when Kffie phoned me the assay figures I was wailing lor. I copied them down: I-rk A L«4 B $4.79 $15.43 yi« 17.91 4.7t 1435 5.50 18.2T ,y mind. I would have to tell Cory. She was paying the bill and she was entitled to information, nd it was better to giue it to her n spoonfuls than in one indigesti- >le lump at the end. 1 found Cory in her private office checking smelter returns. How'd you like to take a walk n the country," I said. Sh* smiled. "AH right." • • * "^lE truth was 1 wanted to get • out where I knew there were no ftavesdroppers within a mile, Another reason was that it's not often a person runs into dirty work in my trade, and I felt the need of some clean mountain air. -Where to?" she asked. "Upstairs." I pointed to the aerial tramway running up the side ot Umbrella Mountain. Before the gravity chutes were cut through inside the mine, the tramway transported ore down \o the mill, but now it was used only to carry the crews to the upper workings. We .sat in the cage and floate< through the air to the top level and then we got out and scramble* up another riOO (eel to a ledge o rock. Cory flopped down on somi dry moss and I sat beside her in the warm morning sunlight, Th* bilious gray of the tailing dump was softened by distant and the dark green of the fir-cla< hills was slashed with autum scarlet and gold. The country wa beautiful. I felt like abandoriln the Dark Angel and starting righ then and there on my three-moot holiday. Averages $5.05 "Effie," I said. how interesting that and thanks.' $16.4* "you've no Idea is. Goodby, 1 thought tt over and made up T lajr back on the moan wit littl« sigh of con tent men "Last tim* I wan up here," sh said lazily, "I shot a bear — brok hi* hick with th* first shot." I groaned. "Cory, don't you ev> have a weak moment when yo el you'd like to depend on some ere man?" She chuckled and sat up. "I'm epending on you right now, Mike. hy did you want to come up ere?" J pulled Ihe papers from my ot-ket and spread them on the I OSS. "Assay results. This"—1 pointed o the first set of figures—"is what got from Riggs. Average value 4.82 per ton, from the chip sarn- ies Archie Trask and I got Tues- ay afternoon." She nodded. "That's about what s bet'n running." "And this"- -I pointed to the Lot A" figures Efne had given me—"is from the second sa m- ling, the ones I took mysel! and which we look into Driscoe to the xpress office. Average value $5.05 —in other words, near enough to iggs' figures not to matter.' 1 She nodded ngain. "Tt just goes 0 show, Mike, you have ;i nasty, uspicious: nature. And il shows, oo, that I've been a stubborn fool about the whole thing." "I'll settle lor stubborn," ! said. She smiled a weak sort of smile. 'I don't see that it's much use your stick ttiR around, Mike. That's about as final as anything. You could go on taking samples till doomsday but it wouldn't put commercial ore in the mine, 1 think I'll tell Doug Weyman to line up that lawyer with the 25 grand." "Half a minute. There's something else here.' 1 1 pointed lo the assay result 1 ? of "Lot B." "These," 1 said, "are figures for samples I took m/ter I dropped you at your place Tuesday night. Average $16.40. In other words, assay figure* for samples that haven't been tampered, with." And then I told her about the business o< the reef knot* on the sample bags.
