My ears were straining for the sounds of a motor car coming trom the townsite. But I heard nothing. If they didn't come quickly— I squJnted at Uncle Jake. He was standing just about where L had tumbled from the roof of the building. His back was to the light and his gun was pointing at my middle. I tried to estimate my chances. He was about 10 feet away—too far to rush, and not far enough lor him to miss me. Cory had to climb up the hillside, run to the townsite. Tell somebody and get them to come back with her. Ml that would take time. It was plain enough to be seen that Uncle Jake didn't intent: to stall much longer. Archie was even more nervous. 1 tried to figure out again how long it would take Cory to do everything necessary. It *til didn't add up to enough time. I had to do something myself, bu' how? Archie must have sensed wha' was going oo in my mind—after all, anybody would'have had the same thoughts. He must have been afraid I'd do something because he cleared his throat. "You*d belter get this thing over ' with before Johnny comes back,' I Trask said. j "Move inside, son,"* Uncle Jaki said to me, "we wouldn't want—' He never finished the sentence I think Trask was feelinj_ squeamish, because he was look in away, so he didn't see K. But 1 saw it. I bad a grand stand riew, and it was a lovely sight, A 20-pound boulder was dropp«< s squarely as if it had been aimed ith a bombsight. It landed on Uncle Jake's head with & dull kunk" and he toppled over with little grunt. Trask turned at the sound and I made a running dive as he moved. hit him at the knees arid we went down In a tangle. I think I could have handled ?rask alone but my bombardier wasn't taking any chances. 1 heard rocks rolling as Cory Parnell slithered down the bank and a moment later another "kunk," only this time Trask was the ;arf-et for tonight. He quivered and went limp all over. Cory stood behind the [alien Trask with a good-sized rock ter hand. 1 wriggled clear and stood up. "Thanks pal," was all I managed to say at the moment. was shaking with the reaction now. "M-Mike, are you all right?" 'I'm all right, but I wouldn't be surprised if you'd cracked their skulls. Why didn't you run for help?" "Oh, M-Mike, I was scared siifT. 1 tried to climb up the bank, b-but 1 kepi slipping, so — Mike, how co old they! How eould they be so — ** ! put my arms around h*r "Keep it for later, honey. Their pal 'Johnny' will be here soon and we've got to b* ready for him." stooped and picked up Uncle Jake's gun. By the time Cory found some rope and had tied Uncle Jake am Trask — wilh good reef knots, no grannies — we heard a truck coming up the road, Johnny T the truck driver, didn' even offer ui objection when he saw the gun rn my hand and heart my orders to step down.
