It was noon when tiie taxi dropped him off at the farm gate. Down near the stable, he saw Nystrom and there was •eofneofw with him. It was, Johnny saw as he drew nearer, Judge Garry. There was a big smile on Nystrom's ttiin face, und his pale eyes sparkled. "Did you come home for our congratulations, boy?" Johnny shook his hand, and Judge Garry's. He said, "I came •home to find out what's cooking." "You came at the right time," •the trainer said. "Come with me." He led Johnny toward the stable 4oor. Johnny stepped Inside. He blinked, rubbed his eyes, and ( stared, and stared, and stared. . . . They were all there. Bella, Chal- Jenger, Annabella, Melody; all the horses Kovalt had taken from him. Johnny puckered his lips into a whistle. "My hunch was good, huh?." Nyslrom nodded. -Trie old Ham- gton hunch, Johnny. Just like jcur dad." -Tell me about it. 1 want to know- all the details— how'cWyoi get the horses back. Everything. Nyslrom said, "I^t's go up to the house. Ma's making doughnuts." «'hen they entered the kitchen, Mrs. Nystrom said, "Welcome home, Johnny." • » • '"rilB doughnuts were fresh, the •* codec fragrant and hot. Ny- slrom told his part of it while they ale. "I can't claim any credit for this Johnny. I merely followed your instructions—with a few variations." "A lie-up between Goodliue and Kovalt?" iVystrom nodded. "Yes, but If there hadn't been, your plan for savins Adonis would stiU have , worked," . Judge Garry smiletl at Johnny. 'It's the sort of scheme your father would have cooked up," he said. High praise, that, and Johnny felt justly proud, though somewhat embarrassed. 'Well," Nystrorn went on, "I got n touch with Judge Garry, here, as you suggested, and we worked out the details. I lold Goodhue hat the judge would pay $40,000 for Adonis, but that you wanted to •icll him to Kovalt. He wauled to know why and I said llial the colt wasn't right, that the track vet at Atwater told us he'd never be well, that you didn't want to stick the iudge with a sour horse." Johnny glanced at Judge Garry doubtfully. "Perhaps that was a bit—uh—dishonest," Nyslrom shook bis head. "Not when you're dealing with a man like KovaU. Well, Carol, in the meanlime, saw Kovalt from day to day, and when he asked her if it was true what he'd heard about Adonis, we knew he could only have got that informative from Goodhue. Carol told him that we were figuring on shooting Adonis.' A great load lilted from Johnny's heart. jVYSTROM smiled. "You know Carol only took that job to see if she could help. And she did. She saw Goodhue there frequently. WL learned Goodhue was a gambler and thai he owed Kovalt plenty Maybe the judge better tell you Ihe rest of it." "I checked over the notes,' Judge Garry said, "ami one thing about them seemed strange to me They were formerly held by iw<. men who had been friends of both Kovalt and your dad. And bo« men were dead, so there was way of breaking down their stories Kovalt wasn't taking any chances. The judge took a deep breath and his eyes were sad. "When you asked about G o o d h u e—well, h as close as I'll ever get to hav- ng a son, and 1—" He shook his ead. "I was wrong, that's all. The nles were forgeries, and crude irgeriei, at that. It wasn't your ad's signature at nil. Goodhue ever figured they'd be checked. !e was executor, administrator— lere wasn't anybody likely to de- laml a check-up. He'll so lo jail, f course, and be disbarred. Kovall's got some expensive legal iclp, but I'm afraid that won't be nough for anything as raw as his." Nystrom said, "We got the horses jack, first, before we turned them bolb over to the law. Maybe they bought that would be enough." e shrugged. Johnny said, "I'd like to use the ruck. I.s it here? I'd like to run nto town." Nyslrom smiled. "She ought to be home." He shook his head. "You surely must've written a nasty let- er. She cried for almost two days solid." Johnny said, "I'm a cra/y fool." "The truck's ill the yard," Nystrom told him. • • » [OliNNY never got into the truck. Kor the convertible was parked at the road end of the driveway, clocking the entrance. Johnny was running, and Carol was waiting. When he reached her, he said nothing. He only opened his arms. Aflcr .1 moment, he felt the tears on his cheek and drew away. She gulped. She said, "I saw you on the porch, just as I was going to turn in. That's why I stopped out here. I wanted to be alone with you. If you were still angry. 1 didn't want them to hear what you'd probably soy. And if you weren't, 1 didn't want them to see what you'd probably do." Johnny grinned. "What, no flat tire?" 'No, but I had thought of letting the air oiit—" He sighed. u Deceit, trickery. Always in some way—" 'That's a woman for you," she agreed. "Why don't you shut up and kiss me again?" Which he did.
