II the gang couldn't afford to pinch Cory Parnell's high-grade ore while I wa: around, then everything mine< would go into the mill. And. if thai happened, the mil feed would jump to $15 a Ion anc everything would be lovely I grinned to my sell al thought of the fancy explanation that would be forthcoming. Next morning, Friday, I droppec into Cory's office early "When do you get smelter re porls oo your concentrates?' asked. She pointed to a fat unopenec envelope on her desk- "That wi be for Wednesday's car." I did a little figuring- "The: lor the car that rolled yesterda —that was Thursday—you'll the figures tomorrow?" She nodded. "Could we get them today? 1 ; She studied (or a moment. II phoned long distance this atte noon, I guess we could. But, wh so curious? Gelling the news ear won't make it any better." "Tt'U be good news." "What makes you think so?' "According to your mili-flo eels K has to be. The $15 ore I mpled on Tuesday Dight was ined on Wednesday. It was illed and concentrated on ednesday night, dried, loaded, net shipped on Thursday. Q.E.D. nstead ot running forty-five or fty bucks to the ton, those con- en trates'U run a hundred and fty—thre* thousand bucks "m- ;ead of one thousand—and as ong as I'm around the mine all our cars will be that way." E wasn't buying. "There's hole in your argument, Mike. J the car values jumped like that would look suspicious." "Oh, there'll be explanations, 1 said, "lots of 'em—the pay- -treak must have widened unex- ectedly, the crew must have truck a rich pocket, and so on The point is. the gang is on the pot and it's safer to go straight emporarily than risk my discovering their technique-" Cory looked at me a couple of seconds as if she were trying to decide whether 1 had good judgment or was only making wilt guesses. **Then what?" she asked. ** W e 'U listen to the e xp 1 ana tions," I replied. "The (eUows wh< do the talking may put us onlo the right track on how this ore is being taken," 'All right," she said doubt fully. "I'll phone the smelter lat this afternoon." "Fine—and then we'll break th news to variou5 people. 1 want U be arourtd to watch the reactions. * • * npHAT was a httle after o'clock ID. the morning. phoned Krtte lo gel the dope o Argus Mines, then 1 buckled daw to look for that bidden entrano —or exit, 1 gue«K, would be BOOT accurate.

Tlie ground was ridd 1 ed with bandoned holes. The original No. vein had Long ago pinched out barren rock, as had Nos. 2, 3, nd 4 in the course o( time, but old drifts and connecting rosscuts and raises were still icre. They started about * hundred eel from the portal and nearly II of them had been allowed to ave in. one place or another. hey didn't interest me because I was looking for a hole in good epair that showed signs of recent use. I went in the full 1700 feel lone the haulage level »o the working slopes and then turned around and started back, playing my lamp over every foot of wall surface. There were dozens ot side tun- nets to keep me occupied. They ad been driven for the same purpose =ts the caved ones near lie portal—to follow up ore shoots —and always they ended up with blank wall where the vein Mncbed out or was given up a« not worth working. I took lime out for lunch and a phone call from Effie. The Argus outfit had two shareholders, who were also the directors. Effie had tracked them down and they turned out to be a lawyer named Hennessy and his stenographer That meant exactly nothing, because using a lawyer as • front is a frequent dodge m th« mining game.
