VooAinJ r*vt»H xxrn /CURRENT pulled and sucked against the General Heath until Crotch slid her against n rotting wharf in .a manner that spoke of long experience. The shoaling river channel before La Paz WHS all that kept the larger Navigation steamboat from pulling in at the landing. A wave of biltcr irritation brushed him ns he silently admitted Jamison could probably have broken him long ago if it hadn't been for the gravel spits that piled up so persistently. Ever since the damage to Amador Jamison had been using thn company's second largest packet, the Claramore. Two other shallow-draft San Francisco paddle- wheelers had been brought under his pennant, but, Claramore remained flagship of the fleet. Crotch was aware of GOES entering the pilothouse, but his attention was centered on the wharf where he recognized three people. One took predominance over the others, set his heart to strangely' strumming. Queenie Dreyfus! How long it had Ween since that day she stood in this pilothouse, the day Jamison had set them high and dry on a sandbar. For him she had said many strange things that day. He had often pondered on it since, and wondered if she hadn't made him n quiet offer. A .suggestion behind her aclual words, had he risen to her subtly hidden meanings, which might have written the end to Dreyfus' dreams? Goss's voice broke in brusquely: "You sec who's waitin'? Sugar Logan! You always took him as a friend. Hut me, I figure that's something to be stretched two ways. Hark the time he rnn out after lurnln' the barges over to Jamison? A cifle, smooth fellow. "Then there's Shelby Calhoon. Any time you see him you're lookin' at trouble. He never was any good except with cards, even when he worked as officer aboard the Amador, So he tries his hand at minin'l . "Besides them there's Queenie without her husband. What would Dreyfus say, secin' her standin' beside Calhoon? We had her on this boat a couple days and even China Boy was fetchin' tea .and biscuits." "You notice China Boy's gal- Icy these days?" Crotch asked, shoving to one side the rough thought* Goss uttered. "Blame me if he's not cleaning up. Linda Wong is sending him letters." "If ho talks her into sallln' back from China," Goss said bluntly, "we've got to find us a new cook." QUEENIE DREYFUS was waiting beside Calhoon on the main deck. There was no doubt about it they were together. Calhoon carried a gripcase in one hand; it was obviously heavy. Goss's description had been apt; in Ms black suit and beaver hat, Calhoon looked more like a gambler than anything else. Queenie was dressed in tier buckskin skirt.twhich by now had become ragged, and a woolen coat made shabby by desert camps. H was the same skirt she had worn months'ago when the General Heath had dropped her off at La Pnz. "We'd like to book downriver," Calhoon said, and he was leering slightly, his lips withdrawn from his while teeth, "That is, If you have no objections to a former Navigation man." "All right," Crotch conceded. There was n pause while Cnl- hoon gave him * keen glance. "CflJ Dreyfus Is dead, Qurcnlc hfis sold out her claim." His hind automatically brought forward the gripcase, and now Crotch realized it was filled with gold. And heavy. "We're going to Fort Yuma," Queenie quickly told him. "I've had enough of the hills." Calhoon was grinning. "I expect to talk her into marrying me." So far as Crotch knew, Dreyfus had been alive on his last downriver run a month ago. It was fast work for Queenie. Entirely too fast for a woman whose husband had not yet cooled in the frozen earth. Subconsciously he heard himself saying, "We've got only one stateroom." "One will do." Queenie gave him a narrow-eyed look. "Mr. Calhoon will make out somehow. Really, Shelby, you shouldn't have said what you did about getting married. There's nothing definite about it!" That was the moment a rifle thrust its flat bark into the wind. Shelby Calhoon's tie whipped more furiously than xmial. It must have made a tug at his throat /or he glanced down immediately, lifting the tie's ragged end in his fingers. A bullet had torn away a corner ot tb« fabric. * • • ALL ot Srotch's foreboding crystallized with the shot. He said sharply, "You'd better get into a stateroom. Use No. 3—and stay inside till we cast loose!" 'On my way, Captain." Cnl- Itoon smiled back recklessly. He made a lunge for the deck ladder. Queenie made an empty gesture with her hands. "It must b« the gold, Captain Crotch. I made a tidy haul." She was unemotional, her face as bland as Cal- tioon's. And yet he rend struggle at work beneath the surface, and voice dropped. "I'll want to see you later. It's not the way t looks." Sugar Logan dropped a hand against his arm. "Don'l bother trying to track down that gunman, If that's what you're thinking. A man for breakfast nearly every morning, and no one ever catches the kljler. That's what La Paz has come to right now." (To Bt Continued) "I hate to break up the gams, but I alwayt like to have George's dinner ready—he's a devoted husband about little things like that!" I want that one for Pop's birthday!"
