Turning to Star I laughed aloud, the first genuine release from tension in days. "In all the world," I announced joyously, seizing her outstretched hands, feeling now the full post- danger letdown, "we haven't a thing to worry about but Slate- meyer!" "I*nt that enough?- The que«- tlon fell with singular flatness in the morning stillness of the hillside. Beside me 1 fett, radier *«, heard. Star's stiffening gasp.

Turning slowly, I unbuckled my guns, letting them slide to the ground. Reaching inside my shirt for the knife thong r tented my body for what would likely be my last lunge. If I could strike fait enough to get the blade into him before the lead that would be in me weighted me down. Star might— "If that knife touches your hand the squaw gets shot." Behind me the dry click of a cocking rifle put the period on his warning. "Pull the thong over your head. Let the knife dangle where I can see it all the time. Then drop it. I don't want V> fire a shot. Indians get curious about shott Drop the knife." If I didnt drop the knife he would shoot if it brought the whole Bad Face band down on him. He was literal. What he laid you'd better believe. I dropped ths knife. "Now turn around " I obeyed. "Pick that stuff ap, girl." «2TAR glanced at the guns and •^ krafe disdainfully, making no move. He stepped in close to her, repeatng, "Pick K up." She »p»* in his face. He stood expressionless, letting the apittie course his cheek m touched. "Pick K up, Star." This, tersely, from me. -Pick it up or we're both dead." "I would rather be,""she snarled, her lips drawn back savagely over the white teeth. , "Star. Pick H up. 1 order you to do H." I wed the Sioux phrase with which the brave terminates all tipi arguments when he has heard enough.

"Throw them over the rocks behind you—down th* hill,'' sute- meyer ordered. As she turned to do so he stepped ,Jickly in behind her.

Facing me, he added, "Back up in between thoae rocks. Thote two high ones that wedge together." I stepped back until my shoulder* touched the boulders They were It feet high with smooth vertical sides. A puma couldn't have gotten out of that spot. The only way was through the ggure fronting the opening. Unbuckling his own guns, Slale- meyer threw them contemptuously up onto the hillside behind him. following suit with his rifle. 'They're yours," he grunted. "AD you have to do li to get them." As he spoke he drew his knife, starting in toward me. "No noise," he explained, tonelessly, making a slight twtating gesture with the blade. T SUPPOSE no man ic totally without some shred of the actor in him, some raveling of humor in the cloth of his makeup. Dwp in- si8e Slatemeyer lurked a maverick strain of mirth. His weakening to it in this moment was one of those weird split-hair things; the lort of featherweight foolishness that has cost many a man many a battle Pausing five feet from me. his eyes never leaving mine, he made his memorable sally into sarcasm.
