"I've got an Idea!" i He quickly lied the mules to | some low scrubby bushes and took Allison's hand. Carefully they crept along through the brush. :Once a dry twig snapped under Barry's foot. They stopped breathing for an instant as they saw Renaldo shade his eyes and peer in their direction. He must have (been satisfied it was only an ani- ;'mal as he went back to his shout] ing at the Indians. . When Ihey had gotten a good .distance away Barry stopped. ; "There's only one thing lo do," •he said. "This brush is dry as r powder. "We'll set fire to it and scram.

Tiny name nared ds he held it close to a dry bush. An ; instant later great Barnes leaped i skyward and crackled like a thousand tiny pistols. Barry, Allison's hand clutched In his, was running wildly up the slope. The wind was whipping the : fire to the norlh as they cut back away from the inferno. When they got a safe distance from the blaze they stopped. They 'It will slop at Ihe canyon over he next hill," Barry reassured ler. "They will bo afraid, it will )ring the coast guard." Barry slipped off ln' s coat and ipread it on the sanely ground. "What happens next?" Allison laid. "Next you're going to got some sleep." "A swell lime lo expect anyone o sleep." "As tired as you are now you could sleep in the middle of 42nd Street with the traffic zooming around you." 'How about you? I suppose you feel fresh as ;i daisy?" "I feel all right," Barry lied. 'This fire will keep lliem busy for at least three or four hours. I'll sland watch and as soon as I see that (hey have it under control we'll move back from the coast and rest until night. It'll be dawn by the time they get llial fire under control. They won't try to take those boats out until dark- tiess sets in." Allison was too tired to argue. She stretched out on the soft sand, still warn) from Iho heat of Uic sun, and wilhin five minutes was sleeping peacefully. Barry sat on tlic ground, his eyes watching the red line of flames as they swept norlhward along the beach. They lighted the sofl tropical sky with, a pale, yellowish glow. Tlic warm night air, flic even pounding of the surf, the song of the wind, the distunt crackling of the fire. . . . Barry felt himself gelling drowsy again. He meant (o get up but this lime fatigue won oul. He was suddenly asleep. He had slept for several hours when lie first heard the sound ol voices. He opened his eyes slowly, like a man waking from, a troubled dream. He saw first the feel and legs, thcn'liis eyes traveled up to the dark faces of u dozen mumbling Indians that stood in a circle around him. He sat up, rubbing his eyes, and looked over 'Sticking your nose'in where it ioesn'l belong!" he said bitterly. Then he noticed Allison. Dismay ,' showed plainly on his handsome,' dark face. "How'd she get here?" ,' "You thought she was safely ocked up in the mountain eslan- :ia?" Barry said sharply. "I thought she was back at the limitation!" "I see," Barry said. "H was me .'our Indians were to have am- jushed but I didn't go. Allison wenl instead!" "The blundering fools!" Renaldo lared out. A LLISON woke up, startled. A' frightened cry escaped her. "Don't worry, Miss Topping," Renaldo said mildly. "Nothing Is going lo happen to you—unless you bring it on yourself." For the moment Allison was so stunned she couldn't answer. She was trying desperately to gather icr wits. . "Smart trick of yours to start (bat fire," Renaido said. "Only it, won't do you any good. Tonight when the fishing boals go out you'll bD aboard, Fielding. What lappens to you from then on will je somebody else's problem. You've just delayed us one night." He turned to Allison and smiled. AH the sharpness had fled from liis voice. "Tomorrow I will take you back' lo the plantation," lie said. "I'm sure you're a smart girl and won't cause any trouble. It would really be so useless for you to do any- Ihing now except what I tell you." Renaldo slid his automatic from the holster. Barry.'s hand shot to . his side but it fell away again as ho found his gun had been taken. Allison jumped to her feet and starled toward Hcnaldo, her eyes blazing. "Why you dirty—!" Kenaldo caught her wrist and twislcd it until she winced. "Now don't be difficult, my sweet, it will only cause you trouble." '•.'..• Kenaldo turned to an Indian and said something in Quiche. Im- medialely the Indian took short pieces of rope and bound first Barry's wrists, then Allison's. The Indians led them away down the . slope to the beach. They walked! : for a quarter mile to a clump ot trees. The Indian grunted, nod- boU,-gasping for breath.
