TTE ran late into Pilot's Slough, •*"*• the sun already down and the river between its vague bluff banks a ribbon utterly devoid of detail. There was a deep channel close under the cliff wall to port. A few hundred yards down- river from the bluff lay the Cocopah woodyard. Once he cleared the narrows he mqant to run past the yard with stenm full on. He was barely aware of 'the man stepping in, so swiftly, so sik'ntly did he move. As soon as he heard the man's voice he recognized him for Calhoon, Goss had carelessly left him out of sight! "Crotch, you made it. I didn't believe any pilot could navigate those shallows that way." "Likely you'll learn some things Navigation never taught you," Crotch said with a heavy sarcasm. Calhoon was silent a brief moment. "You'll be putting in at the woodyard?" By way of answer Crotch rang full power from the engine room, shuttling his look quickly back to Calhoon's face. Calhoon was standing immobile in the shadow-packed compartment, lips cutting a straight crease against his square face. They went steaming by, the sharpened cough of Mclott's engine quickening now, the Heath splashing down in midchnnncl faster and faster. Presently Cal- hoor. thrust the muzzle of his pistol into Crotch's back. "Ahl" Crotch murmured. "You killer! You murdered Dreyfus. Now you m rm to wreck my boat!" Calhoon laughed softly. "You've had your chance, Crotch. So had Dreyfus. He got everything thai was coming to him!" Crotch thought now he t. 1 .'.psccl the blurry outlines of Jamison's ship emerging from it The Wild ty EDMUNDS CLAUSSEN it, Stamford Ptibncatiofw. he behind t thin screen of river willow round the bend. He swung suddenly from the wheel, felt the pilothouse rock under the tremendous concussion ol Calhoon's revolver. He struck Calhoon a powerful blow in the face. The man's gun arm swung up. He grasped after it wildly with his clawed fingers. Time was rapidly running on, with the packet racing madly downriver without benefit of her helm. ' * » * THE gun dropped from Calhoon's fingers as Crotch bent the man's arm backward. Again he let go the wheel and drove a blow into Calhoon's Jaw. The man spun away and Crotch was on him, sending a knee up into his belly. Calhoon's shoulders smashed through a window. He was bent far outward when Crotch clubbed him anew. Then Calhoon grabbed at the framework, slipped, went screaming downward in the outer darkness. They were about to crash Clar- amore's starboard quarter. The decks of both packets were alive with blasting giinflre. They were cutting down the space between Claramore and then.sclves, running blindly into the face of Claramore's crimson,gunfire. She was still making slow headway, having only a few moments before backed out from the river hank. They struck her a reeling blow, and he realized Jamison was doing everything possible to slide his ship away. Navigation firemen were forcing'thelr boilers for every pound of steam. Firebrands and sheets of name .is flexible as liquid were leaping from their stacks. But the General Heath was turning up for full power; Clnramoro was still a long way from achieving thai, and the two packets woi i- 1 jammed together. The best Jam- I ison could do for the moment 'was to allow Crotch to push him at his .stern quarter. They ran that way with their two crews battling each other in close quarters. Crotch spied the cherry-red glow of the GeneraJ Heath's fire pokers and knew Melott's Cocopahs were rushing into battle. His passengers, too, were crowding over the railings to board the larger ship. Rending plank railing gave Crotch his warning that the boats at last were drawing apart. He tugged his whistle cord to call his passengers and crew back to their own decks. The flames licking over his deck roofs had been too much for Jamison. He still carried the haunting recollection of the boiler blast and fire that ! had gutted his Amador. Before long he pulled in to the river batik. Presently, when the Claramore was a long distance behind, when the fire had finally been brought under control, Ben -Goss came into the wheel house. He was ragged and spent, his checks and the ends of his beard showing the ravages of fire. "Better go below, Irv. There's damage you'll want to look over." He took the wheel from Crotch, then added: "Calhoon Is dead from a broken neck." • • * THE lower decks were a shambles of shattered w.indow glass and discarded weapons. He found Calhoon beside the ccbin deck ladder. "Had he anything to say?" Queenie's voice osked. "Before he died, I mean. Did, Calhoon say anything about Dreyfus?" "Yes, Queenie. He admitted he killed him." She stood with her brown hair framing a pale face against the murky darkness. When he made a slight gesture with his hand, she came beside hirn. He could feel the slender hardness ot Cal^ Drcylus's pistol beneath the folds of her coat. He said evenly, "For you, now, it's all over." She shook her head rapidly. "Not yet, Captain. I have the foo'i"" I'm not finished with the . i\ ~r.' 'TO rtc Continued) TRUSSES EXPERTLY 1 FITTED 2 price KIRBY DRUGSTORES WE'VE GOT IT! Over 33,000 different items' in stock!
