Now that it's proved h« oiifiht to he able to iind out what's happening," Cory linally decided. I was so exasperated t could :nve dropped her down the mail Haft of her own mine. I decided LO make one more attempL "Cory, listen to me, Carclully If you fire Riggs, *nd Riggs only you'U tip off the gang and they'! be cagier than ever. Maybe you'' get your high-grade ore, maybe some of it, or maybe none—you'"" always be wondering which." I paused to light another cigaret and let my blood pressure drop few points. "All right- You sa you refuse to fire everybody, be cause somebody who's ianocen might suffer. Very creditable bow to your humanitarian to stincts. But— it you insist on being noble you can't Bre Riggs You can't tell Archie or Uoc Jake or anybody anything. You'v ot to pretend you donH know othlng from nothing, and all the me hunt like the dickens Tor at missing higk-grade. Get me?" "You know something, Mike? on look really handsome when ou get worked up." Nuts!" I shouted, and stamped i ut the cigaret I had just lit. ' "Mike?" *T:es." "Will you hunt for it? For roe?" I looked down At her. Sh« was till sitting on the mosc and bits f it were in her hair. Her shirt as mussed and her slacks were tained with mud from the knee iown, and by rights she should lave looked like two cents. S;ie ooked like the four million doJ- ars she didn't have. So I let her have H straight. 'Yes," I said. "For you, I will." I never could figure out women. Next thing I knew she was crying. AFTER bunch I had i bull •**• sion with myself and even- ually concluded that the stuff either k> regular, producing many have shipped ore to the couldn*t poftsibly be pinched from smelter?" :he mill bunkers. She thought again. "About There were too many men dozen that 1 know of." around, and even it they were all greased, sooner or later one of .hem would decide he could gfK more money from Cory than from the gang and the truth would be out. That left the alternative: somewhere there existed an entirely unsuspected entrance to the mine. But that brought up another angle, one 1 hadn't thought of before. You can't lug a sack of high-grade ore into a smelter and say. *'How much, Mac?" You have to sign a contract, stating location ol mine and type ol ore; you have lo arrange with the railways (or empty gondola cars, pick-upe and freight bills; there are a hundred and one things that have to be done, a lot of them right out m the open.

First, to find a secret entrance to the mine, and second to find out where the ore was gong. I decided to tackle the second one first. I wcnl back and asked Cory how many mineral claims there were in the valley. "Thousands," she s«id. "People have been prospecting around here for • hundred years." "Not counting the abandoned ones, how many are being worked right now, within. My, W milei of here?" She thought a momei>C "Maybe 40 or 50." I tried another tack.

Tell me how ho get to them." Cory gave explicit directions on now to reach each ol the mines that were shipping ore to the smeJter. Altogether there were 13. which sounded ominous to start with- Some ol them could be crossed oft* to begin with and others would take no more than * couple of minutes to check off oner I'd seen them. Hnlf a dozen stops ought to do the job. I set out in her blue convertibl« hair an hour later, not looking forward particularly to thr job.
