At least 7,000 persons jammed everything that ~fe|en looked like a seat in the bleachers and grandstand, and took up most of the available standing room as well. It was a picture of this entire community in action snch-'as warms the heart of anyone who likes to see things cfick in a big way. It showed the length, breadth and extent of the community when it decides to get together at more ofr less one time. * Yet that huge mass of moving humans—most of whom tried to get to the fairgrounds by automobile at nearly the slmYt* time, resulting in the biggest jam of traffic seen here itt;Jttfttty;months—represents only about one-third of the population'Of Mason county alone. What would happen if it? were ever possible to get all the people together on any ohe project at one time? I Apparently the way to come closest to that far-fetched ideal is to offer them a chance to get something big for nothing. Something for nothing is still the magic spell— t|e all.too human yearning in 99 percent of all human breasts. f llOnfiortunately, few things fall in that class during the remaining 364 days of the year. 4 Friday night's program, however, was excellent — a rfal tribute to the fair association. •f, It .was, furthermore, the first sizeable crowd the fair h%s had since it opened last Tuesday. All week the fair has had a fine array of exhibits and attractions—the best in its history—and few customers. FJHday night, however, probably tipped the scales. Certainly it was the finest, biggest one-night crowd of any of the four years during which the fair has been staged. f .The News has always maintained that a good fair could be operated in Mason county, and that it would be a worthy enterprise if chief sti'ess were placed on clean entertainment and ever-increasing emphasis on local exhibits— t|e best products—animal, vegetable, handicraft, etc.—of otir own community. * But on the Entertainment side, and in the matter of ti&o-early dates for proper exhibits, the fair got off to a bad start four years ago. The carnival was a riot of gambling and chiseling. Nobody approved, least of all the fair association. But there it was—a sour start. After that, people took the attitude of "daring" the fair association to put on a good fair.; The public had to be sfhowii, and widespread co-operation could only be expected AFTER a successful fair had been staged. •So, allin ally-we believe the fair association, starting f won* scratchy ;ha?s learriecl a lot—that they have a widely- acknowledged fair th'is year which is a credit to any com- •nunity of this••sj^e.-i : '•/. ''..". ; It can;€a8ily : , if properly managed, become the finest district fair ever operated in this region. In view of this year's results,, and .experience, next year should bring much greater co-operation. It should bring all of us—farm, city, merchant, etc.-—uniting to show our wares and have a good time. After all, thatas the purpose of a fair. A general mixing around of all ; elements of a coirinrunity once a year on a constructive local exhibition.basis is a fine thing. CHAPTER THIRTY-TWO ( "YOU BETTER let me break the trail," Shot Rogers whispered. "Just stay right behind me and »tep In my tracks." "Don't take long steps," she answered. "Your legs are awful lo*g." "Me and Abe Lincoln," said he. "I think you are like Abraham Lincoln In many ways, Shot Really I do." "We can't get to talking that • way, Lorena! Not now. If we are goin^ to do this crazy business, we got to keep our minds strictly on what we are doing!" "Who was It mentioned 'me and Abe Lincoln,' Mr. Rogers? Who started It?" "Aw! He squeezed her arm a little, and she le-ghed softly at him. But he swung out quietly and she walked behind. Ha had a pack strapped to his shoulders that made him look hump-backed in the night. Part of It was hers; he wouldn't let her carry much. And he kept looking back as they walked along, treading between rocks, pushing aside the thorny brush on the mountain mesa there, wading in the highland grasses that had sprung up in spring, but which were mostly dry now. The recent rain had revived stome of the glasses, but the summer sun had been devastating agal*. Shot's trained eye took note of these details even at night, and In spite* of the more urgent matter at hand. "Shot, do you have a definite goal In mind?" she asked when*they had sat down to rest a bit, after the first half hour. "Are you going to a specific place now?" "Depends on the Itfy of the land over there. Maybe wts can hole in somewhere near the waterfall or the rapids, on one branch or the other of the Ghost. I think maybe that's the best place to keep a lookout." "\yhat about the cattle herds themselves? Maybe we could watch them and learn more." "Well, I figure it this way, little girl." He called her that quite unconsciously, in a friendliness and intimacy which he had never permitted himself to tfcow before which delighted Lorena n. "We might watch the cows and see the rustler* start off witi? some stolen stock, all right. But we couldn't follow to see where they'd go. That's what we need to know—where the cows go. We know that several times they have been driven right to the stream bed, and then they disappeared. So let's stick near the stream and see what we can see." "I'm not afraid, Shot." "No need to be, much. Not much danger If we Just peek out of the rocks all day and look. If we move around we might be seen, but we got on clothes that'll camouflage in the rocks and brush easy. Then we.-can trek back tonight. Our trouble'ir be pacifying the Brazees And: Mister Dale." ."No, said Lorena. . •'Why won't it?" .. ?Shbt Rogers, I declare!" Lorena unconsciously picked her Aunt Sally's expression. "You talk as if T were a child. Jerry Dale has no strings, on me. He's not my guard ten."; • GOOD SAMARITAN 32 Dawn had begun splitting the dome of night. "He acts like it." "Well—well, maybe he does, then. Maybe I like for hL.i to!" "Um," said Shot. "We got to stay together all day. Hardly worth while—uh—starting off with a scrap." He led off at a fast walk again, and she clung behind him. She told him she felt like an Indian squaw. "Squaws are fat," he whispered back, out of a corner of his mouth. She didn't answer, but she was delighted. Delighted because Shot Rogers had a sense of humor. Delighted because the night was cool and zestful, especially at th'- altitude. Delighted because she was adventuring and enjoying the adventure as only a young and audacious person can. Delighted because —well, just because. She wouldn't phrase everything even in her own heart Sometimes she was afraid to admit too much to herself. Fate had a way of snatching things away from people who were too cocksure,. Lorena knew. She had seen it. experienced it even. She didn't want to make any mistakes now. As she walked she could look off at a night-sea of mountain peaks and canyons, topped by a velvet to which were sewn gems of stars. Somehow she just couldn't associate all this with danger. If she had been alone she would have been ill at ease, perhaps even afraid in view of the recent troubles. But with Shot she wasn't afraid of anything. Even Luis Escobar seemed remote, unimportant. She wished for a moment that she could see some of her friends back in Kentucky. Glor-ree, they would never Relieve her when she got back home! Never bellev_ the true stories she'd have to telL For that matter, she could hardly be lleve them herself. So many things had happened to her; so many seemingly Impossible things—glory gee! Arizona was an adventure country by reputation, but she thought that was all due to fiction and the theater screens. She had been prepared for fun this summer, but not fo.- anything as reck less and exciting as the experiences she was having on Phantom ranch Shot moved fast to conserve the night hours, and she was tired when they came out on a promon tory far from any land she had seen before. . "Unless I've gotten all twlsteftr around," he whispered, "the forks of the Ghost can be seen, in day- ight, right down yonder less than :wo miles. I sort of -potted this ilgh point when I was there, even though I never thought then about coming up here. Now. when day- Ight comes, we can see clear down there. You got the field glasses you mentioned? They're Dale's, aren't they?" "Unh hunh. 1 snitched them out of his room." "Well. Well, all right They'll come in handy, maybe. Be.«t thing we can learn is which fork of the river they do take, when they drive cows away. Then we can concentrate on seeing where the cows come out of the water." They opened his pack and ate a sandwich each, some dried flgs, and half a bar of candy, then drank from his canteen. Dawn had begun splitting the dome of night, streaking through some low-lying clouds. They knew daylight would come quickly up where there were no canyon walls to delay it Already they could tell that their promontory afforded a spectacular lookout even though the lowlands as yet were shrouded in purplish gloom. "It's going to be a pretty day; no rain, thank goodness." Shot -Jccld- ed, eyeing the sky. "That's good. Shot. But we won't have much to do. will we? Just sit and look. We can't move around or we might be seen, you said." "That's right. Just be st'l.." "Well," she said slowly. "1 don't mjnd. But you are used to action. You have a great deal of energy, don't you. Shot? It will be awful boresome for you to have to sit behind a rock for 12 or 14 hours." Shot looked into her blue eyes. Her blue eyes, under t^ie brown of her hair, had disturbed him from the moment he first saw her that day in the Blanco statlua. He was rather close lo her now, and she saw him swallow hard. /'Little girl." he began, "if It waa 12 or 14 yeafs, I wouldn't—" He paused and swallowed again. "Hmmm!" "Shucks, Lorena, 1 got to lay for Luis Escobar! Don't git my mind off my business!"
