She pushed a cheet of paper across the desk at me. I picked it up and saw she had the details aL written out: ounces of gold, ounces of silver, per cent copper, ai! translated Into dollars and cents. I looked at it again. Thursday's car was worth 5964 I sat down with a thump. "That can't be right!" "Twenty tons at $48.20 pet too is J964. Check it yourself." "Bui—* She go* up and went over to th window "I've been thinking i over Mike. I'm going to lell Doug Weyman to accept thai otter fo the mine and gel oui while I can 1 was all wrong.

JUST then Archie Trask bustled ** In. full of energy and mauly goodwill He greeted everybody cheerfully, and then Cory's figures on the sheet of paper caught his eye "Forty-eight dollars and 20 cents a ton What's that. Cory? One of our cars?" She was embarrassed. "That't the car we shipped yesterday, Archie I phoned the smeller to see how it turned out" He looked ouzzled. "But, Cory, we got the figures oo that car from RigS5 This morning, lust Like we do on every car lhat goes out Forty- ei^ht-seventecn a ton. wasn't that it?" Cory passed the buck without a qualm. "Mr McTaig said It was going lo run around S150 a ton, so he got me to Dhone the smeller." Uncle Jake looked at me like a dog that's been whipped for reasons It doesn'l understand. "Mr. McTaig." he said sadly. "1 wish I knew why you didn't trust us."
