She brought in a 15- rear-old Indian boy, a runner from Tobey. The boy could not talk English plainly, but Zad understood his report: "Tobey say tell you he has girl. Now got her up in moun- .ins." A wide, wicked grin overspread Zad's face. He said, "Go back and tell Tobey to bring her here tonight, and to be careful." The boy grinned and departed Most of the men Zad had sent out had returned by dark. One group reported on how the fugitives had stopped at the ranch for breakfast and token fresh horses TAey had followed the trail untf they knew there was no chance o overtaking their quarry. They had brought back Jess Williams to give Zad a first-hand report One oJ the party was Herb Painter. Gabe Cox said. "Herb was in favor of chasing 'em all the way to Pangencet if necessary, tmt the rest of us thought we'd better turn hack." \ Zad allowed his smile to play bver the uneasy Painter for half a minute. "Herb always does his best," he said. "The only trouble •with him is that when he has a job to do he goes to sleep. I think he needs more sleep, don't you verything you know," Zad said oldly. "Now you're going to ge' hat sleep, a long one." An expression o£ horror contorted Painter's face as two Indians ed him away. • pETE had moved camp abou' •*• three miles on the other side of the road into an oakbrush hicket only 0 short distance from T spring at which Barnes' cattle and sheep usually watered. It was a good hiding place, with an opportunity to keep watch, and he could bring his horses in to the spring in the darkness for water He had tied a red rag in a bush at the scene of his former camp in a manner that looked as if i' had merely caught there, but in side the rag was a note tellm] where he had gone. Nate Was sun lo see it if he came back then looking for him, but there was on) boys?" "Aw, I'm all right," Painter muttered. "I didn't go to sleep last night. That feller sneaked up on me. I didn't have a chance." "You could have caught Wilkinson at the ranch the other nigh ii you hadn't been too lazy or too cowardly to ride on and take him," Zad said implacably. "You neve n.iish up any job 1 send you on.' "1 wanted to go on today, bu Gabc—" "You wanted to go on to Pan IRcncct. Once there you'd ha iftencct. unce men: yuu u n.ivi:.\tuu.i '>"-•• turned on the rest of us and spilledlcouldn't speak. the remotest chance that anyon Ise would see it, or think it any hing but a rag from some squaw' ress if they did. About mid-aUernoon he saw flock of sheep trailing into th pring and recognized the herde s Jess Williams. He was not a all surprised, and had half counte in this opportunity to contact th )id man. He recognized the possibility o Betrayal but it was a gamble h elt it wise to take. When he rod lown to the spring Jess made n lostile demonstration, but on th contrary seemed eager to see bin jut there was a tragic look on th old man's face. "I don't know how you g here but I'm glad to see you," Je said' "I go' mighty bad news." "About Betty?" Pete felt like chunk of lead had lodged in h throat. Until then he had force himself to believe that the g : ;ould be all right. Jess nodded, and his bcarde crinkled face contorted with o' vious gric'. for » moment 'She—isn't dead?" Pete queried. 'Worse. Tobey has her." "In Two Rivers?" "Yes. But she's not there now. nd I didn't git a chance to tol- r her." Pete swung off his horse. Tetl e what happened." "Ole Tobey worked a slick In- m trick. Some of his bucks ught 3 couple kids huntin' a mile r so Irom Pangeneet, but they let kid git away and took the her'n to the hills. Of course hen the kid got back every man town got on a horse and went ter the Injuns. While they were one Tobey and a couple bucks ipped into town, or mebbe was Ireacly hidin' there, and took etty. The Injuns turned the kid icy took loose, and that was all icy was to it." "You say you saw Betty?" "Yes, I did. I was down there ast night after Zad got word obey had her. Zad had sent word 0 Tobey to bring her in, and they lowed up about midnight. That njun was proud as a peacock. Zad ad a long talk with Betty, then icy took her away. I didn't have chance to do nothin', so 1 come ack up here hopin 1 you fellows ivould be ba-k when you found he was gonr " DEEPLY Pete regretted the softness which had caused him to et Zad Barnes live when he had he power to kill him. It would jever, he told himself, happen again if he should ever get within gun range of Barnes. "You've no idea where Tobey .vould take her?" he asked help- essly. "Not/my. Look at this country." With a sweep of his arm Jess indicated the vnstness of the wilderness around them. "Most of his country no white man has ever seen, but Tobey knows every foot of it." 'There should be a way to find her," Pete said desperately. "Them other squaws will abuse Betty scandalous, and they won't dare give her a chance to kill herself. Tobey may not be back to Two Rivers for months, and Betty never will." | (T» B* Continued) TS ALWAYS 6QOD EVENIMG! . ) CUSTOMARY THIS WAY, PLEASE' / ID SLIPlHf 1 HEAD WAITER.
