It was hotter than 200 miles between here and the head of navigation; into these normally dry, chocolate-covered hills went llicir manifests of mining supplies, tools and food. There were very few times that 1 he remembered n sprinkling of snow over this country He knew it better for its dryncss. its heat They .were two hours uprivcr from Yumn, and Mclott was again letting her speed slip. Crotch rang the boiler deck for every pound of steam. The floor beneath him began (o vibrate; he knew the General Heath 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 off the sandbars, A vagrant shadow tipped against the pilothouse,. causing Jiim to glance about. Goss stood before him, half grinning. "I'll take the wheel," he said. "Den, you get below." Goss moved toward the wheel. He laid his hands across the spokes. "That Reverend's down there, ilill 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 no trace of Snodgrass on the dock. China Hoy came spinning nrotmd the corner of the cook-house, carrying n tray on which sat a sugar bowl nnd two empty cups. The Chinese nllorcd his course to filve him a wltla berth, plfitnil flyinfl. Crotch made a grab at the back | of the cook's shirt. The cups slithered dangerously close to the , tray's edge but China Boy jug- j gled it in time to save them. The captain looked into them contemptuously. Chrysanthemum tea. The Celestial was again running Quoenie'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 said, "we'll find someone that can keep a clean galley." The Chinese was squirming around, his slippers sloshing the wet deck. "Missy allee time want something," he grinned. ''Alice time hungry. Allee time cold." "Annoy Qucenie 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. "Como 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; friendliness ' In her eyes. "You believe Pm bnd, Irving? You—you're still remembering Dreyfus?" It was the first time she had called him by name, "I'don't know what's bad. But you're not. I only wish the chance had com« to u§." She lowered h*r glance, spoke almost at once. "You think I'm running nway from Yumft, that I'm afraid to face It through I am, but not for 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 this 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 Christrrrip 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 diflicult lime 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 girl 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 s,ad 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 straw, She kept licking m^ hand—I hav« never seen an expression as helpless, or as hopeful, as that poor animal's. AH the while I kept praying. I prayed like I never prayed before, and nothing happened. That night Rad- clifT Burke burled her for me aehlnd the poach orchard. I went ,o see the schoolteacher—a lank, aony man with a thinker's skull and grave ways He told hie that Ihcsc things sometimes wore God's will." He too held a brief silence before he snid, "The teacher was right. There are times when there's no other answer."
