TVTAVIGATION COMPANY at lemjth launched n new policy of aggression, n wicked, unfair rate-slnshing which left Crotch scarcely enough cargo to pay his Cocopahs. The Amaclor, twin - wheeled pride of the combine, was an hour uprivcr as Crotch rang oft his engine and put his snubby-noscd steamboat in toward Casllc Dome. A few hundred yards below the landing lay the bulk of the benched Snn Diego that had tried to ram them. Ren Goss squeezed into the wheclhouse beside Crotch. "You see her standin 1 • down there on the landing? A flossy like her'll be nfler us for some favor. I know!" At the moment Crotch was thinking of another woman and shrugged. For weeks there had been no news of Dreyfus. Somewhere in this trackless region beyond the river Queenic was keeping a camp. Queenic, who had spoken lo him about loneliness. "Get down and do w.hat you can for her," Crotch told him. "Tell China Boy not to burn whatever kind of n mess he's cookin 1 . We're likely to have a lady passenger nt dinner!" Mcntitn of the Chinese brought a humorless smile to Crotch's mouth. They had nearly lost their cook when Uncto WonK had transferred her sad charge aboard a schooner nt Port Isn- bcl. He had been insistent upon accompanying her and only Linda's pleading had held him from going. She had promised faithfully to write from China as soon as a respectable period of mourning had elapsed. He caught Goss's frown from (he tail of his eye a,nd drew up short. Goss gave him a sly wink. "Irv, the flossy says she's been stranded by Amarior. Jamison's got her father aboard, and she ain't got a cent." , Crotch let his eyes roam lo the woman. At close range she was more impelling than he had supposed, and the air about him became suddenly impregnated with a fetching aroma. It was an odor seldom associated with the river smells. She said, "Captain, I am Lilly Hartrmm. I am a showgirl," He said slowly, "So we are to have entertainment along the landings?" "Certainly. We paid for our tickets In Yuma, My father went back aboard the Amador to argue the matter of our belongings, and without warning Jamison steamed off." Crotch was touched by a certain pride behind Lilly Hartman's,smile. He told Goss sharply, "You take the wheel. I'll show Miss Hartman to a cabin." Then to the girl he added politely, "We'll try to catch Jamison before he reaches Ehrcn- bcrg." • * * AN hour later he snl opposite Lilly Hnrlman in the cramped dining saloon that shared space with the small, airless staterooms on the top deck. The Chinese had served his usual miserable mess of wormed can good* and salt meat, "So that's the way it is," she lold him earnestly. "We have always been circus people. Every- one knew my father, Lemoyne Hartman! Mother taught me to walk tightrope, to dance on the high wires. When she died Father was despondent. We came West, searching a new life." "Just how much did Jamison get away with?" "The tents and all my dresses. And the bicycles father and I ride on the wire!" "The bicycles—" Crotch sat straighler, eyes beetling, "—these machines a man pushes along with his feet?" She laughed spontaneously. 'You're talking about the earlier ones. About 10 years ago a French locksmith named Ernest MichauX added pedals to their front wheels. Father had two machines imported for us to perform on. The pair of them cost him $-100." And now the Hart mans had brought these strange devices into the desert that until a few years ago had known only the river Indians and the horse as n means of transportation. "You ride them over a wire!" he repeated. "If you can do what you say the whole river will be traveling lo see you. It'll make me rich carrying passengers." "Haven't I heard Jamison speak of Lavinsky? A town?" • » * CROTCH'S mouth tightened in a grimace. "Jamison won't stop at the landing. He's blind with jealousy because it's going to hurt business nt Ehrcnberg, I helped set a store up there." She let a long silence run while she searched him through. Crotch had depth, a point beyond which ihe couldn't penetrate, but his .itlcr disdain for Jamison was very clear. She said musingly, "Why is !t you fight him, Captain? I can understand in a way, he's so insolent, so arrogant. But isn't it chiefly because you love a hght?" His sudden Imigh wns sharper than natural. "No. I'm standing up lo Jamison because if it was only Navigation Company along Ihc river you could give this desert back to the rattlesnakes and tarantulas." <T« ft Bricker to Try Again - NEW YORK (tf — Sen.
