The Chinese woman lunged and fell against him for support. Lamplight glanced from n jade bracelet on her slim arm; he glimpsed this even while putting out an exploring hand to,aid. His fingers brushed her hip and drew back embarrassed. She righted herself quickly, ilurning up her elongated face. '- "Captain, I am Linda. You I know, for they have told mo many things. But you are not at all as I was led to expect." "What did they tell you about me?" For the moment she lost her Celestial gravity and giggled. "I am not one to judge until I have seen for myself. There is an nn- cicnt saying that the man will reveal himself more truthfully than will tho wind rustling amid empty branches. You wonder that I sneak American so well?" Crotch was not wondering about her speech. He was puzzling painfully what lie .might tell her about Chung, who lay stiff inside his crude casket In reply ho merely firuntcd. Liiuln spnkc as he helped her nlong the trail. "I went to an .American missionary school in iChlnd. Chung learned to apeak i your language, too, before h« rame. Wo promised ench other tlril if we were coming to Amer- ,lcv we inuut be good Arm**'. ';nis," I And In Uiis rcfl?«d, Cro*d» quietly considered, Chung Wong had differed vastly from his countrymertfwho groveled filthily In their diggings, subsisting on their few pennies' worth of rice and smuggling their opium. "Ma'am," he got out abruptly, "just what are you to Chung Wong?" She lowered her face demurely. "I am his bride. I was just 15, Captain. He has been gone three years. It is such a long time to be without his love." • • * THE tone of her words brought him up still. He caught her fluttered breath. "Captain, what is it? Chung is not well?" Gold-coast freighting had left little beauty in Crotch, either in his physical makeup or in his soul that had been tempered in salt brine nnd rivcrboat steam. Yet, drawing on some source completely beyond him, he told her in a comparatively beautiful way. "Chung, ma'am, is very happy. He is where you never work, never rip your heart out. He is where nil good Americans—and good Orientals—hope to go. We say he went over the hill." To speak of the dead is understandable in all languages, and Linda fell toward him weakly. Then presently she drew away, questing eyes clinging to his face. "How did it happen?" Ooviously she hud been given no knowledge of her husband's death until thix moment. How to tell n woman the ignoble fact that her lover has been bitten by a hog while celebrating the Feast of the Lantern*? . He lied magnificently. "Chung died bravely, mn'am, A number of rough cnmp characters were planning a sleftl of gold. Chung found out—he wns at Hie appointed pUicc to meet and gave a warning but, unfortunately, he took a bullet for his trouble. Linda, you can be proud of Chung." Somewhat awkwardly, then, he led her up the gangplank. They met Jim Melott beside the engine pit where Crotch issued an order, "Have your Coco- pahs ready for action. I told Jamison I'd sink his barges and he's not going to fancy that talk. We're going to do it, Jim!" Crotch swung to the ladders leading to his high wheelhouse, his hide still smarting under the stalemate Jamison had forced upon him. From the vantage point of his bridge deck he could comfortably survey the landing. There was activity along the landing, but it was too dark for lim to make out for a certainty what was taking place. When the San Diego's wheel started splashing he knew deckhands had unfastened her lines. She came slowly upriver against the current, gaining speed. • • • CROTCH'S (ace eased into i ,hin smile as he evaluated the aossibilities of what Maddix might try. ,If the San Diego Struck him, Maddix might drive ;he lighter General Heath hope- iessly aground with his powerful paddle. But U.i General Heath lay in 24 inches of water. Between her and the main channel, where Maddix would be bringing up his packet, la? a sandbar, running, jnsounded, perhaps 15 inches. His own boat could skim across the bar. But never the San Diego! Below on the cargo deck Jim Mclotl doused the light from a brass bulkhead lantern on his way into the engine pit. Crotch saw Goss leap across the deck, ax in hand. Goss's searching look lifted to the whcclhoosc and Crotch nodded, the gesture bnrc- ly perceptible from below. He rang the engine pit for reversed puddle, and knew lank-bodied Jim Melott in his steamy quarters would be vatvlng their machinery frantically, Tfx General Heath'x paddle wheH began slowly to revolve; she .stood ! ard tiftainst her straining hawsers.
