"They ain't asleep," he comphiincd raggedly and his hand slipped free his pistol. Crotch eyed the gun shrewdly and shrus«ed. Jamison had started this, not he. There was no law ,-ilons the length of the river save th;it which a man enforced with his own will. Tonight he meant to write into the river code a new chapter, and a finish to Jamison's treachery. They stalked forward noiselessly along the strip. When they reached the tree to which the first b n r s e lines had been snubbed they were perhaps 75 feet from Amador's stern. Their axes swung back in unison and then the stillness blew up in cracking rifles. Crotch felt the sting of splintered hickory •against his palms as a ball whizzed olf the end of his ax. In- slinciivcly ho fell on his stomach, saw Goss already hugging the bank. Lead whined above their heads and drove up little geysers of sand about them. Their axes were' forgotten as they tore free their suns. Goss got oft a flurry of shots toward the Amador. From the edge of his eye ; Crolch hud caught the muzzle flame of another rifleman; he had heard the whine of lead ricocheting oft his ax and knew In what direction Iny their gravest danger. "They're In a gully beside the General Heath!" "There's a dozen guns yam- rncrin* nt us from back of Amador's paddle box!" "They're only Cocopnhs," Crotch grunted. "Indians can't shoot, especially at night. But yonder lies Jamison!" Crotch rose on his haunches, crawling toward Jamison's nest. A ball from the direction gey- sored landing strip in his face. Me threw a shot in the direction of the muzzle flame. Immediately a second gun answered. Maddix! Jamison's voice brought him a taunting anger. "Lei up, Crotch! We don't nfm to kill anyone. Bm you'll stay away from my barges!" The two Navigation captains had chosen a natural pit behind the landing strip in which it would be impossible to reach them with lead. The position which they occupied, virtually beside Crotch's own steamboat, allowed them the advantage of dangerous crossfire against Crotch. Melott had opened with rifles from fhe General Heath's main deck but their fire was ineffectual, passing harmlessly above Jamison's head. • * * AT that moment a remarkable phenomenon took place in Jamison's rifle pit. Crotch lay still, pondering the violent and continued explosions erupting behind the brenstwork of the gully, heard Maddix's sharp yell of pain. It puzzled Crotch, and then he recalled the firecrackers thnt had made such a din during Chung Wong's funernl procession. Linda Wong, naturally enough, would have brought her husband a goodly fresh supply from China with which to ward olT evil spirits before entering her new home. Someone on the General Heath's upper decks was tossing them into Jftminson's pit. After considerable moving around in the pit Maddix finally began crawling up the bank. He was pressing one hand frantically to his eyes, and the swift thought struck Crotch that one of the firecrackers had exploded directly in front of his face. A heavy blast of powder and dirt in the eyes might'well disturb a man, might even destroy his vision. Jamison tried to pull Maddix back into the pit but simply succeeded in himself being drawn into the clear as the other captain fought him violently. Both men had lost their guns in the gully and they were now dependent on their Amador crew for support. "Wait, Crotch! We can make some arrangement. The barges—" Crotch's balled fist drove the rest back between his teeth. He chopped in 1 again with a blow and the man before him teetered uncertainly on his feet, fell backward into the gully. Now Goss was at his side, driving Maddix back. But Maddix was a game, slugging fighter when aroused. Blinded as he was by exploding jowder, he still put up heroic resistance. It was some moments sefore Goss knocked him into the ?it beside Jamifon. Then they leaped in and turned both men on their faces, lacing their arms with their own belts. • * • WHEN it was finished Crotch ,caned back, breathing heavily. 'I figure it'll be safer to haul :hem on board until we got our marges in tow," he ventured. He lifted his voice in an order for fiis deckhands. While the Heath's deck crew were trotting them over the land- rig strip, Goss asked curiously, "What do you figure blew Jamison out of this gully?" Captain Crotch gestured with lis hnnd and Goss peered over .lie bank. What he saw was n slim figure in a silk kimono standing behind the mil topside. Beside her was the squat figure of China Boy with his shirtUfls fiat against his thighs. While Goss stared, the Chinese woman lifted her arm to them. From the lip of her Angers shone the red glow of punk. . . . (To HESTER'S BEST GRADE 10' Per TON (FkM Tai M 2 Tons or More) S.
