He knew rthat his safety depended upon Zad JBarnes, and so he left his gun in jhis room and walked bareheaded Unto the dining room. Zad and .four or five other white men were (already seated at the table. Gabe about what supplies the company would be likely to need. "I'm sending a fast express to Los Angeles," he said, "and it'll be the last supply train to get back be/ore winter. Better have a list of what you need." "DARNES sat a good table, and ^ the men were waited upon by the same young squaw who doubled as chambermaid. Through an open door Pete caught sight of an older Indian woman at the stove, 'Cox was missing. The men glanced but he saw nothing more ol Betty lat Pete, and their eyes revealed Barnes. There was not a great deal of talk and the trouble between Gabe Cox and Pete was not mentioned again. However, Pete noticed that the men at the table made considerable effort to agree jthat they noticed the, absence of Pete's gun. "Poor old Gabe," one of the men chuckled. "He'll have to eat soup through a straw for a month." "You broke his jaw," Zad told Pete. "That's too had." Zad said, "about them emigrants iyou were talking about. I've been thinking it over and it looks like we might work out a deal." "Good." "If they come through within the next month they can fatten Itheir stuff in High Valley, and Imove down here later.

Barnes said, "Of course you Idon't have to pay it, but it would 'be wis,e, These Injuns get mighty hungry in the winter time." Polo said, "I think Captain Wilkinson will be able to defend himself." He saw Xari Barnes give an involuntary start. "Who did you say?" Barnes j asked cautiously. j "Wilkinson. He's captain of. the (party I'm talking about." "What's his first name?" "Nathan. You know him?" "Never heard of him," Barnes growled, and Pete knew that again Zad lied. Barnes began to talk Nate Wilkinson's name. He didn't with anything Zad were Zad Barnes' thought. said, men, These Pete Pete lingered at the table until 300 miles away. the rest arose, then went back to his room. It was getting dark, but before lighting the coal-oil lamp he hung a blanket over the one window and closed the door. It wasn't the first lime a blanket had been hung there, he saw, for there fere nails conveniently placed. After lighting the lamp his first concern was to see if his gun had Pete said coolly, "I don't think been tampered with. It was still n the holster he had hung upon out there was a rolled up paper in the trigger guard. He opened it with a little suppressed excitement arid read, "Don't trust anybody here. Your life is in danger. Get away as quick as possible." It was unsigned and the letters ;ere large, like those made by a child who had only recently learned to write. He had no doubt at all that it had been written by Betty Barnes. While not inclined to disregard tempt to leave during the night than to wait until daybreak. And there was always the chance that Zad Barnes thought he would have a good chance to plunder the emigrants if they came to Two Rivers that winter. The thing that worried him most was Zad's apparent recognition of see how it was possible, for Nate had never before been West—or at least so Nate had said. • * • TDETE's own decision was a tough 1 one to make. If he said the word Wilkinson would come on with the 20 or more families in his company, and they would be taking a desperate chance with Zad Barnes. Pete knew what would happen if the Indians attacked. That evening Pete had studied lis maps and he knew that while Two Rivers was in the extreme corner of one territory, High Valey was across the line in another. It would make it extremely difficult to appeal to the law for any ielp, and in fact he had been told jy one high in authority that it was impossible for the territorial officials to do anything—and the nearest Army post was more than Ihe warning, Pete believed lhat ft grants, would be mure dangerous to at-' All Zad Barnes had to do was stir up his Indians and Wilkinson's larty might be completely wiped out, even though it numbered some 40 fighting men. And yet the only practical way to destroy Barnes' power was to establish a permanent settlement at Two divers. Pete had already decided that since he was footloose he would spend the winter with Wilkinson's larty to give them what protection le could. • Nothing happened to him that night, and after breakfast he prepared to leave for the north. Once nore he saw the Navajo who had puzzled him. Pete could speak several Indian dialects but Navajo was not one of them. The proud and arrogant Tobey was also around, but Pete avoided lim.
