Crolch could (eel the dead weight of Maddix's body Amusing them both down. He Rave a sudden, violent heave and threw Maddix from him, watching him earecn halfway across the room and come smashing clown on his head. He stood spread-legged until he was sure Maddix was not going to get up. His fist ached from the pound- Ing he had Riven, and hlood was dripping from the side of his face. Both hands slipped into his pockets, coming out with their pistols. His fiery eyes ranged the cafe, coldly hostile. The room had been sobered by the shooting of Snodgrass. There were gold seekers and freighters and speculators in claims, arrived here at the landing for a taste of Christmas cheer; jetsam all, every one a Navigation sympathizer who in some way looked to .Tnmis'on for favors. But even these men were temporarily willing to forego animosity. No one would have cared had Crotch been gunned, but under the circumstances of the preacher's being hit, Maddix's fireman would he an unpopular man when he returned. "Look after the Reverend," Crotch said. "Bring him along." There was no doctor at Castle Home but aboard the General Heath Mcloll would do all that cnt'lcl be done. A few burly men lifted Snod crass, stopped outside with those in front making room for them. Krnm downriver came the spasmodic cracking of rifles as Maddix's crewmen went Into action a«amsl the General Itcath. Cniich told one of the bnr men lo hurry down and stop the fighting, "Tell Goss to bring her bad; to the landing. Better to hove copyright, Stamford Publication, lot the Heath up here than to carry Snodgrass that far." He motioned with his pistol toward the landing strip. The men laboring with Snodgrass stumbled after him over the snow-covered mud. At the timber wharf Crotch spread his shortcoat so they might lay Snodgrass on it. Movement had restored partial consciousness and he murmured as Crolch stooped: "Water. May I please have water?" One o* the miners offered his bottle of whisky, but Crolch sent the man running to the cafe for water. He felt the wounded man's gaze on him and he said quietly, "Reverend, I guess you took n bullet that was intended for me." Dut Snodgrass had turned his face in pain. Then, when it was over, the lids of his eyes fluttered. "The way of the wicked is as darkness," he murmured. "They know not at what they stumble." Weakness carried him into unconsciousness. But now the General Heath was sliding to her landing, this time well alight with her passengers and the breech-clouted Cocopahs crowding forward. Melott leaped ashore. "Get this man aboard," Crotch ordered An Indian bumped him as he was hustling his Cocopahs. It was the yardman who had refused to sell him firewood a short time before. "You still want to buy some firewood?" "You rascal! A little while ago you would have lot me sil without steam." "No, Captain. Just now un- loarlod." , "Bring your 10 cords up here Vast. My boy'll help you." Still the yardman was grinning. "The captain made some talk about boniiF." Now Crotch snorted, "llunus, eh? Get your men moving, or my boy'll rope you to the boiler," * • * UNDER the light from a swinging lantern in Queenie's stateroom, Jim Melott cleaned and bound the preacher's bullet wound. It was high on the chest, entering the back and going through clear). Qucenie had stood by, doing all she could do to aid Melott. Now while Snodgrass slept she stepped outside. Queenie's gaze found Crotch among the men, and she saw that he wore a fresh bandage over his left ear and about his head. He was expecting some fresh move, some final try by Jamison to drive him from the river. Sugar Logan's voice coming from beside the ladder brought him up short. "I've been waiting until you were finished. There didn't seem to be any time you needed my help." CROTCH'S lips curled the barest degree at their edges. "You sure you're on the right boat?" "Yes, quite sure." Logan smiled suavely. "I went along with Jamison to discover once and for all what he was going to offer La Paz Milling Company. I expected you'd be angry. In fact, with you on your toes, 1 expected you might W willing to offer belter rates for hauling the ore." "The rates will have to stand. A sleamboat makes no money working for nothing." Logan nodded. "That's right. I'm sure we have the best offer. I'll tell you now, Crotch. One* I discovered Jamison's plan for freezing you out of the wood- yards, I understood the Navigation combine., If I favored them, our contract wouldn't be worth the paper it was wrillen on. I left his Claramoro withoul his knowledge and wailed here nt Castle Dome." "You haven't given the contract to Jamison?" "There will bo no contract," Logan smiled slowly, "except Ixs- tweon the company I represent •nd Caplain Crotch." | (To Be Continued) By BILL WALKER SURE IS RELAXIN' TO KNOW YER FUU.Y INSURED WITH — W.
