Jim Melott cut off the paddles, boots began •scraping the lower decks. Al- iready Crotch was racing toward Ithc pilothouse. He hit the daz- zlinj* outer light that was like a 'Sheet, blinding him. .At first he could make out nothing wrong. 'You sec that follow In the river?" Goss's voice struck from ith'e pilothouse. Crotch threw his gaze ahead and to starboard, picked out a figure standing hip deep near the river bank. Crotch's facial muscles pulled up tighter. The marooned man stood on i sandbar, supporting a dog pack with both his arms and shoulders. "He has Robert! And the rOthers!" Lilly's cry came pinched An excitement. Crotch gav* her Ihis sharp stare and she explained. The dogs, I mean. Father has Tescued them from the river." You didn't waste your time •csculng dog* from the river; it Nraa more than likely they could swim better ' than the man. Crotch's lip curled. "Where do KJogs fit into this?" "They're part of my act—little 'Robert comei acros* the wire to •me when 1 snap my fingers. But Ihow did Father get there?" Crotch had never experienced (anything so incredible along the [length of the river. He went •down the companlonwny and •hurried over the main deck while the General Heath drifted slowly nearer. L e m o y n c Hartmann finally plunged into the channel, itriklng for the boat's rail with 'Ills. dog.t swimming beside him. "Pl«s« don't l«t th« dog« tlro-vn," Lilly bcRRcd. "They're AH along the prow passengers and deckhands were hauling wet animals from the water, chattering excitedly. It was a holiday for the Cocopahs. Crotch bent far down to aid the man, engaged Lemoyne Hartman's shoulder and drew him aboard. He was a tall, thin man with thoroughly soaked clothing, looking like a professor in his black Windsor tie and long coat and trousers of gray stripe. Anger bubbled through him and shone from his eyes. He rid himself ot a mouthful ol water, laid his hands on Lilly's shoulders as soon aa he was able. "Thank heavens you're safe!" "And you! However did you manage to get in there?" "They threw me overboard," Lemoyne said. "They are a maggoty bunch, whom I hope to repay. Robert went after Captain Jamison. Bit him on the shins a few times—that's one of the dogs," he explained huriedly to Crotch. "After that there was no room for us aboard the Amador." • • • SOMEWHERE in the past Crotch remembered a saying: a man could fool another man, but seldom a dog. Immediately the White bundle of fur shaking its long cars went up immeasurably in hia estimation, "How long have you been on the sandbar?" "Perhaps a half hour, 1 was afrnid to stay ashore—there are rattlesnakes on the bank which my dogs insist on molesting." He offered Lemoyne Hartman the use of a stateroom, sending China Boy in search of dry clothing for him to wear. While Lilly waited on the tcxas he entered the officers' quarters, rummaging through his persbnal effects. Hk contract which he had signed with Sugar Logan was btneath a bundle of underwear in his cheV. Whw tM touod U>U tw pUc«d it| in nn envelope before returning to Lilly. Her eyes were warm with gratitude as she scanned his face. "II there is ever any way I can repay you. Anything, Captain Crotch!" Premonition still grumbled and ground through him, making him grave. "There is," he nodded and handed her the flat envelope. "We'll be running into trouble when we reach Ehrenberg. They might get it into their heads to search you. Wear this where a man's not likely to find it." Her eyes lit up brightly; at the same time she gave him a swift smile. "1 have just the place Cor it." Ehrenberg was a port the Colorado had spawned overnight to answer the demand of mule- skinning freighters and general roustabouts. The navigation landing was more practicrl than La Paz, and thus Ehrenberg was destined to outlive the earlier camp. Amador had taken up most at the space at the crude landing. BEFORE the last turn had been taken on the mooring rop« Jamison stalked aboard. He had with liim a short, ungainly man familiar to Crotch. It was Duey, the engineer who once had fired the San Diego's boilers. The old San Diego crew had drifted after her teaching, nnd men craftly ai :hese ihould be kept und« ;humb. Shelby Calhoon had gont into mining somewhere along the river, but of Captain Maddix, her ex-captain, he had lost nil trnce. Until now he hadn't been certain of where Duey had gone, ' Crotch swung the weight of his look to Duey and felt shock pass along his spine. There was a star- shaped badge tacked to Ducy's brcnst, nnd between his chunky fingers he flourished a folded paper. Go&s's words fell again, sardonically: 'They're talking about impounding the Heath, Irv, do you figure the beaching of tht San Diego has got their dander up?" "That's not quite the point," Jamison In ' ALTERNATES To avoid each other's quills while sleeping side by side, Malayan 'porcupines alternate their positions, each facing in the opposite direction from the next, on a tree-limb perch.
