It was better than 250 miles between here and the head of navigation; into these normally dry, chocolate-covered hills went their manifests of mining supplies, tools and food. There were very few times that he rememiicrcd a sprinkling of snow over this country. He knew it better for its tlryncss. its heat. They .were two hours uprivcr from Yuina, and Melott was again letting her speed slip. Crotch rang the boiler deck for every pound of steam. The floor beneath him began to vibrato; he knew the General Heath w%s making her supreme effort. By this time Claramore very probably lay beside Castle Dome. It would be a difficult race in this snow, perhaps determined by which ship remained olf the sandbars. A vagrant shadow tipped against the pilothouse, causing him to glance about. Goss stood before him, half grinning. "I'll take the wheel," he said. "Ben, you get below." Goss moved toward the wheel. He laid his hands across the spokes. "That Reverend's down there, '.till blowin 1 his steam. To tell the truth, I'm afraid to stay on the same deck." Crotch laughed. To humor his mate he turned the wheel over, mentally promising he would return in a half hour to relieve Goss. Me found M trace of Snodgrnss on the deck. China Boy came spinning around the corner of the cook-house, carrying n trny. on which sat n suRar bowl and two empty cups. The Chinese altered his course to give him a wide berth, pigtail flying. Crotch made a grub at the back of the cook's shirt. The cups slithered dangerously close to the tray's edge but China Boy juggled it in time to save them. The captain looked into them contemptuously. Chrysanthemum tea. The Celestial was again running Qucenie's errands! "China Boy, you stay away from her cabin!" he ordered "China Boy telling her about Miss Linda Wong. Miss Linda coming to San Francisco. Then China Boy quit the steamboat." "When you do quit," Crotch snid, "we'll find someone that can keep a clean galley." The Chinese was squirming around, his slippers sloshing the wet deck. "Missy allce time want something," he grinned. "Allee time hungry. Allee time cold." "Annoy Queenie again and I'll lay back your ears!" Crotch loosed his grip on the boy's shirt; he waited until the cook entered his cookhouse and slammed the door. • • * THE edge of his glance told him the door to No. 3 stood part way ajar. "Come in, Captain. It's damp outside." Her invitation carried him the remainder of the way to her stateroom in a hurry. She was lying on the bunk with her brown hair loose about the pillow; M«ndlln«i' In h« eyes. "You believe I'm bad, Irving? You—you're still remembering Dreyfus?" . ' It was tht first time she' hud called him by name. "I 'don't know what's bad. But you're not. 1 only wish the chance had comt to ui." She lowered her glance, spoke almost at once. "You think I'm running away from Yuma, that I'm afraid to face It through I am, but not (or the reason you believe. I didn't help Calhoon salt that mine—I hadn't thought much about that until you said It. And before I left Yuma I returned that man's gold. It's waiting in the satchel at his hotel where he'll find it as soon as he comes back from looking for me. I also wrote a short note explaining Calhoon was dead." So this was not on Queenie's conscience! It changed his whole outlook and made it brighter. As she read thU in him, a frail smile touched up each corner of Queenie's lips. Her fingers crept against his hand, touching him lightly. "I'm wondering if you know tomorrow is Christrrns' 1 " IN that instant understanding reached him; she had come aboard at the landing, chosen his steamboat during this period which, on the frontier, was the most difficult time of any to bear alone. He told her quietly, "I'm glad you're with me, Queenie." Then: "Until now, maybe Christmas hasn't meant as much as it should. Captain, it's been a long time since I've prayed. It all happened that way when I was a small gir! In Kentucky. We had a little dog that I considered my own. She meant more to me than anything else. A collie, with a white face and such sad eyes. One day she ran from behind the mill and slipped under the wheels of a farmer's grain wagon. "I carried her Inside our barn and laid her on.the itraw. She kept licking my hand—I have never seen an expression as helpless, or as hopeful, as that poor animal's. All the while I kept praying. I prayed like I never prayed before, and nothing happened. That night Rad- cllff Burke burled her for me behind the punch orchard. 1 went to see the schoolteacher—a lank, bony man with a thinker's skull and grave ways. He told tne that these things sometimes were God'« will." He too helfl a brief silence before he said, "The teacher was right. There are times when there's no other answer."
