Zad will know that Nate and 1 1 will,b« back, and he'll want usi to see Betty it he can capture us. His mind runs like that." "1 reckon that's what he'd like to do," Jess agreed. "Listen. Jess, if we're to help, Betty you've got to tell me all you know." "I dont know much," the old man said. "Late years I ain't done nothin' much except run this ranch fer Zad, and try to perfect Betty as much as possible. Course, I know what's been goin' on. and how Zad has got rich workin 1 with [the Injuns and a few white out- jlaws robbin* emigrants." "That's not much help. I already [knew that." "I know somcthiri' about the slave trade too," Jess said shamefacedly. "It's somethin' even Zad •in't proud of, but he does it to faint hope that it could possibly •keep Tobey in line." "I don't think he'd be above .anything, but what about it?" "It used to be big business.

The government stopped that mostly, but Tobey he help was not so urgent as Betty's, seen a chance to prey on the small and had the cases been equal he bands out here on the desert, so realized that Betty would still he gathers up all the kids he can and sells 'cm. Pete Morrison nodded. He had long suspected what old Jess tolc was likely to do something rash that would cost him his own life and destroy what little chan-e Betty might have. Pete said, "Jess, would you be able to go to Two Rivers?" "Not today. Tomorrow maybe." "1 would like you to try to give the white woman down there a message from me. I'd write a note, "Mebbe you seen > Navajo named Juan Chee down there? ie's a scout for the slave traders, Renegade from his own people, 1 but the last one I wrote almost icar. He hangs out around Two livers, and when there are slaves enough Zad makes the deal, and Tobey delivers 'em some place where Chee has his people Waitin'. Zad meant to sell Walter to 'em, although he'l older than they want. They run 'em into Mexico." "A fine business! Is there any chance at all Barnes will try to sell Betty to Chee?" "He can't He's promised her to. Tobey." "You're sure Betty isn't in Two livers yet?" "I know sh« ain't." • 9 • >ETE was at the end of his rope. Searching for the girl in a territory that covered hundreds of square miles would be useless. Tobey was too smart to bi slipped up on. He asked. "Does Zad himself know where she is"" "I doubt it. But if he did rou couldn't make him tell if you broiled him over a slow fire," Jess said positively. It was hard for Pete to accept 1 defeat, especially when it meant| what it did. But another success- ul raid on Zad Barnes' stronghold cost Walter his life so I won't ask you to take the risk." "If it'll help Betty I'll take ft." "I don't know that it will, but I'll write one and you can use your own judgment." "I might be able to slip her a note, but I wouldn't dast talk to her." |DETE penciled the note, but .. found it difficult to word. When finally finished it read: "Dear Cass: I know that you hate me bitterly, and that tor some unknown reason you are infatuated with that butcher. Zad Barnes. If you want to throw your life away it's all right with me, but in the name of humanity 1 ask you to try to do something for Nate Wilkinson's daughter who was kid- naped years ago by Barnes, and whom he now has given to the murderous Indian, Tobey, to be a slave.
