"/ Sell That Staff Phone 2089 Office & Bulk Plant - Promised Land Massacre Mbuntaiis by Frank C.Robertson XXXVI T)ETE was not foolish enough to •^ return the way they had come. Even though Juan Chee and the Mexicans had seemed to feel safe from pursuit he was sure that Tobey wouldn't try to overtake them, especially if there had been disaster at Two Rivers. The way he chose meant that they would be at least two days getting back to Two Rivers. It wasn't long until Walter's gashed leg was inflamed and swollen so Pete had him stay with the two girls while he scouted ahead. But at times he had opportunity to watch how the girls got along. Betty seemed to regard Cass with swe. Cass was the first cultured white woman she had ever met. and she asked questions about the outside world with the eager curiosity of a child. So far as he could see Cass was patient and the ground, and the man lay still. understanding with the frontier girl. Betty appeared to be more afraid that she wouldn't fit into her father's world than she had been of the slavery to which she bad so recently seemed destined. Pete saw no sign of Indians. If Zad Barnes wasn't dead or defeated he would have had the Indians out hunting and there would Betty. have been some sign of them before this. They were at last in sight of the gorge through which he and Walter had escaped from the post. He intended to have the women and Walter hide here while he scouted ahead to find out things were at Two Rivers. He was, perhaps, thinking too much of the future instead of rhe present, for he blamed himself afterward for not seeing the blark hair of the Indian who must have been watching him from behind a clump of junipers as he passed, although reason told him that he would not have been able to see the Indian no matter hew intently he had been watching. The first he knew of the Indian's presence was when he heard the twang of a bow-string. He wheeled his horse just in time to see Cass sliding out of her saddle, while Betty made an ineffectual attempt to grab her. And he saw the feathered shaft, of an arow sticking out from Cass's bosom. The next instant he saw an Indian bounding through the brush und small trees like a jack-rabbit. He spurred his horse in pursuit. Had the Indian not been alone he wouldn't have run, and Pete knew instinctively there was nothing he could do for Cass. • • TIE ran the Indian down in 300 yards, or close enough to use his gun. At his first shot.the Indian leaped high, then seemed to come on his head and turn a somersault. Pete fired two more shots as the Indian writhed upon his hale-contorted face looking up at Pete with dead, unblinking eyes. It was Narraguts, whom Zad Barnes had assigned to guard Cass. It was undoubtedly thVlndian's feeling that he must complete an assignment which had caused him to shoot Cass. He could easily have sent the arrow into Pete'? heart, or he could have killed Pete turned and spurred frantically back t the others. Cass was lying on the ground with her head in Betty's lap, and Pete knew that she was dying. She managed a smile as Pete leaped to the ground beside her. "I'm sorry, Cass. I wish he had shot me instead." "That's sweet of you, Pete You never were as hard as I was. I'd have been glad It was you instead of me if it had happened that way." • "Cass—" "Let me talk. I am no good, Pole. I didn't betray you, but I was tempted to do it Had—had Zatl Barnes been just—just a litle different I might have chosen hfm and his money, i knew you 1 weren't in love with me any more. Somehow, I don't seem to mind now. Be good to Betty. Sne loves you, and you'll be proud of her." She seemed to relax in death. Betty looked up at Pete with unspoken grief in'her face. Jealousy was not in her. Tenderly Pete took her into his arms. "I will be good to you, Betty," he said, "as long as I live. You'll want to see what the world like. Maybe then you'll find someone you like better; and—" "I never will," she cried. "I'm afraid of the world. I want to live in Two Rivers the rest of my life, with you." The world isn't so big,. or so sad," he said gently. "You've nothing to be afraid of. But Two Rivers will be our home. And we'll make it a good place." • • • I5TE didn't need to go all the way to the trading post to know .hat it was being held ,by his 'riends. Nate Wilkinson came running out to meet him. Betty's all right, Nate," he said. "I can take you to her in an lour." "Thank God. I never tost faith you'd find her after I learned you lad been here just before us." "Zad Barnes?" "Died yesterday," Nate said 'He kept begging me to save his worthless life even though he must have known 1 couldn't do t. He even told me where his cache was, hoping that would do some good." How disappointed Cass would hjve been to have learned that, f*ete thought. Considering every- ;hi>ig, it perhaps wasn't so bad hjt Narraguts' arrow had found Is mark. "What about T o b e y?" Pete isked. . "An Indian came in todaj who said he wanted to make peace. He laid Tobey had been wounded in .he fight here the other night and was going to die." "If he docs," Pete said, "things oufiht to be all right in the future." "The big thing Is," Nate said :ervijntly, "I'll have my daughter back." Pete decide to wait before lell- ng him that he had also lost h«r.
