The peculiar gentleness which had come to him was 3. mood he had never before known aboard the steamboat. He thought for the flrst time of marrying Quecnie. There was this bond between them, this timeless, mysterious linking o£ two beings whose minds were attuned to each other. He was somewhat older than she was, and she had already made the mistake with Dreyfus, but years by themselves never mattered; the willingness and desire and •wisdom were shared between them. Dusk had come down so thickly he barely recognized Snodgrass standing with his back against the railing. The parson had seen him emerge from Queenic's cabin and was now watching with a scornful look. He said in his biting condemnation: "You should be horsewhipped for that! But there arc other punishments visited upon man that are even greater penalties." Crotch fought down an anger that was dark bile against his tongue. "Twice you've made n mistake," he said in a bare whisper. "Do it again and I'll drop you in the river!" VIf I have made an error," Snodgrnss said sharply with his head lifting, "I would like to know it. What have I said that's wrong?" "This afternoon you mis- Judged my male when he'd had nothing at all to drink. OnG of Jamison's crew, one of his hired killers, set n trap for Goss nnd laid his hcnd open," Crotch said breathlessly, and then paused while the anger subsided against his temples. "The other Umo you were lower than the meanest thing that crawls." Snodgrass' sobriety never wavered. "Appearances, Captain, speak clearly against you." He understood the indignation in Snodgrass but he could not accredit its justness, Queenie had called upon him in her moment of loneliness, of panicky fear at finding herself in a brash, cold world. He ground out gruffly. "You're a rock-souled New England psalmsingcr whose fathers prated encouragement while they burned good women for witches. Mine stood there, loo, and probably put the flame to her brush piles. But I've come a way since those days. You haven't, and you'd better start looking around the world." The parson's face blanched livid with whiteness. He was on the point of answering and then for the first time his Scriptures had no sustaining value. They had no bearing in \h\s case, for it came to him .Crotch might conceivably be right.*He recognized an unbending quality in Crotch's gaze as something basic, something prirrlal that ran back into the beginnings, of lime. And now be turned, moving slowly away. * • • .FINALLY, Crotch became aware of Goss bringing them up to Castle Dome, He sighted the darkening shore, falling to find the Clarnmoro. She was uprivcr, lien, having already arrived and departed from Castle Dome's forlorn landing strip. He made out the ghostlike upper works of the San Diego, the Navigation packet that had been beached more than a year ago The steamboat slid her nose gently against the mudbank; their Indian deckhands ran out their Kan ED lank. At Uie same time Jim Melott's safety valve began screeching. As soon as Goss had climbed down from the upper deck Crotch said, "Keep our Cocopahs from going ashore. I got a hunch about Jamison. Something don't set well with rne." Virtually all the fleshy planes of Goss's face had. turned black from the fight Duey had put up. Yet this was the only remaining sign of the exhaustion that had claimed him in Yuma. His strength had seemingly all come back from some undisclosed storehouse. A remarkable man, as Crotch had often realized during the years they had spent together. Goss's gaze'slid over the snow-marked landing strip, his mind strangely adrift from this scene. Many seasons had come and gone for him along the rivers, yet with each it was the same. There were times, regardless of how he willed it, when his thoughts played-him trick*, • • » THE alleyways of New York's slums had spawned Goss, a raggedly clothed urchin belonging to a poverty-ridden family. He was remembering one Christmas he had lifted a fowl from the meat stalls, running with it inside his shirt through, the dark side streets. This vividly remembered impression represented the only time Goss had stolen anything in his life, and he had no regrets. Without that fowl their table would have remained empty. He was thinking now of that gaunt, long-faced woman who had hurriedly placed the meat* into her pot; he was thinking of his drunken father lying in the other room, of the flv* younger brothers waiting hungrily beside the table until the bird was cooked, . . . "Never can be sure of Jamison," Crotch was saying to Jim Mclolt. The engineer was thrusting his arms into n short Army jacket which ho wore over n checkered woolen shirt. "Jiro, you got a gun handy?" The lank engineer slapped his pocket, grinned tightly.' "All, right. They're not going to want! us slipping up on Claramore. You| can count on Jamison's worst." i (To Be Continued) I MUD MORTAR Indians of New Mexico were building with stone, successfully using clay mud as mortar, when the first white explorer arrived in that area more than 400 years ago.
