"/ Sell That Stuff" Phone 2089 Off ice & Bulk Plant- Promised Land Massacre Mountains by Frank C.Robertson XXI (some story and Cass was listening 'ORKTNG back through the with smiling enjoyment He had the dejected feeling that he need not have worried over Cass. She would take care of. herself. It angered him to sec her on such good terms with a cold- blooded reprobate, but he realized that it was good sense on her part to cultivate the fellow, now that she was here. His feeling was pretty close to jealousy. He watched them drive on toward Two Rivers, then walked back to his camp and under cover of darkness built a small fire and cooked himself a meat W mountains infested with hostile Indians would be a dangerous undertaking, Pete Morrison believed. He probably could make better time on the High Valley route. In no event could he hope to get back to Two Eivers before morning, and he certainly could not hope to approach the place in daylight If Zad Barnes intended to mur r der Nate Wilkinson immediately Nate would already be dead. If Zad intended to hold Wilkinson prisoner for reasons of his own, it would probably be days before Nats was killed. And it was on this assumption that Pete had to act Pet« took an extra horse from Hoot Anderson's stable, and enough supplies to last a week. Except when going through one :high pass, which he did in the middle ot the night, he avoided •the road and skirted the, base of >the mountains, keeping in timber as much as possible. j Morning found him looking idown upon High Valley. It was far from -flat and although he • .could see the ranch that Barnes had staked out, the buildings were hidden from view by a hill. He felt some worry about the .Indian boy Walter but there was nothing he could do about it; nothing to be gained by letting anyone know he was back in the country. After he had ealen a cold breakfast he stretched out on a level place for some much-needed sleep, nnd it was nearly sundown when he awakened, lie arose and walked over the ridge to where he could look down upon the road from High Valley to Two Rivers. He had scarcely come in sight of it when he heard tha clatter of whesls, and a minute later a buggy came in sight, headed toward Two fllvprj, and he could see them Ldouli. qHORTLY before midnight he hended for Two Rivers, leading the extra horse, but leaving his supplies behind. He reached the cottonwoods and willows just below where Santos and Escalante rivers came together. He watered the animals again and tied them deep in the brush. On foot, he made his way toward the trading post. He was strongly tempted to try to see Cass, but gave it up. Her door might be watched, and it was unlikely that she would know anything about Nate anyway. It i>as better to do his own scouting. There were several Indian camps close about the post, aruj this made maneuvering difficult. Nate, if alive, was probably being -icld in one of the stronger buildings outside the court proper, and he would be heavily guarded. He was moving up on one of them .when he heard a giggle. There was no shelter so he dropped flat on the earth, trusting .hat in the darkness he would not seen. A moment later he saw :wo people apparently heading straight for him. It wns the Indian ;irl, Sally, and her companion was white man. Pete had his gun In hand, ready to shoot if he had to, although it evidently was telling would cause an alarm that would' certainly foil his plans for the present. The couple stopped perhaps 20 feet from him, the girl still giggling. The girl giggled again, then the man said, "Old Zad will do all right for himself, looks like. That white woman is sure a looker." "You let her alone—me kill tier," the girl said savagely. The man laughed. "Keep your little buckskin shirt on," he said. "She's Zad's girl. Beat it now, I got to relieve Tex." The girl headed for the court at a run. She passed within six feet of where Pete lay, but didn't see him because she was looking 3ack over her shoulder. The man .urned and walked over to a cabin ust beyond the one Pete had been working toward. Pete was on his feet a moment after they were out of sight, and moved swiftly toward the building had intended to inspect He leard the murmur of voices, but couldn't hear what they said. He froze against the side of the build- ng as he heard # man walking toward him. . AT the end of the building this man stopped and called back, 'I'm warnin' you, Herb. You're in bad with Zad right now, and if you go to slo»p on guard duty what he'll have Tobey do to you won't be nice. Foolin' around with .hat Injun gal when you oughta been gittin' some sleep." "Don't worry about me," Herb called sulkily in reply. The man, Tcit, came around the corner of the building so close that Pete could have reached out and ouched him, but he passed on and J'ete was spared having to knock lim out. Pete no longer had any doubt hat someone was being held in the next building, and it was almost certain to be Nate. The job of liberating him still lay aheiH. A difficult and dangerous task, but ''etc was elated because Nat« probably was »live. Pete could not afford to ^t rashly now. He must wait and make his plans. Sooner or later le would have a chance to fret Nate Wilkinson. (To B« Continued) Television— Ton ire, Tomorrow WMCT, Memphis.
