The shivering needle of the speedometer rocked past the black 60, heading for 70 with no hesitation. John Henry's cheerless face went suddenly incandescent. "The ranch!" he shouted.

John Henry, keeping anxious watch in th* rearview mirror, lost sight of th« big black car for moments at a time ns they raced up and down the rolling hillocks.

There was a furious rush ot .sound and the Uuick sedan tore by them, its driver's eyes fixed unswervingly on the highway ahead. Vernon was alone in the car. Only when the black car had topped another hump in the ground and disappeared did John Henry blow out his breath. He grinned al his wite and let out the clutch again. The Mercury could hear the familiar raucous song of the juke box and Hie clnng of the slot machine just inside.
