Q UEENIE walked directly to her shop after her rebufT from RadclifT Burke. It had been the first time she had seen Burke since those days in Kentucky— since she had married someone else and gone away. That ordeal, the husband she had endured.un- til the bitter end, was an experience she never recalled now. Perhaps she shouldn't be too hard on Eurke. After a». she had sent him along his way o( her own free will and choice. All her life she had abhorred secrecy, underhand ways, and when Burke had returned wounded from Bull Run and then enlisted in Dr. Bickley's unhealthy work, every fiber in her revolted. Everyone admitted the gallantry and heroism of the troops of the South; on the other hand, this Dr. Bickley of Louisiana had dreamed up an underhand manner of winning the war in which she took no pride. Copperheads — KniBhts of the Golden Circle—fantastic organizations sworn to murder Lincoln in his sleep. As soon as Burke recovered from his wound he had taken the Knight's oath in « barn with a live snake hanging above his head. The snake was their emblem—a repellent banner representng a revolting doctrine. She stepped through her shop's door, laid her back tlredly against the frame. Mfcting Burke again had broug'it Its shock, had opened the floodgates on memories ol days when she had been 18, a passion hungrily demanding fulfillment. In this way Cat Dreyfus's words struck her, jarring the past. "Did you forget about tonight?" She lifted her hand, brushed unruly hair away from her damp forehead. "I stepped over to I'ran Little's place." His arm fitted securely around her waist, he drew her into a rear room smaller than the front shop. In here a cast-iron stove was still sending out intolerable waves of heat. Queenie had recently completed next morning's stock of baked goods and the smell of fresh .bread lay in the room. A broken chair and a bed stood against the bare wall. It was a squalid quarter, a far cry from her father's clinched-log house in Kentucky. She could never enter without feeling a stab of remorse. Dreyfus was struck by her pallor. "What's the matter? You sick?" •No. I'll be all right." Her glance lifted, brighter now, and a smile played across her languid mould. "Dreyfus, you're a good man. I'm—I'm not what you expect." • • • AW IMPATIENT laugh escaped from his throat. "Ever a man take a woman knowin' what she really was inside?" His words set her heart strumming. A woman could take Dreyfus and be safe. There might not be any breathless ecstasy, put he would never tire of her. She said quietly, "There's no preacher at the landing." She asked, still not thinking directly of Dreyfus, "Will you always love'me?" "Always." A sob came fiintly from h*r throat. It brought a low murmur Srom him. "It's aU tlgU, Queenie. Maybe I'm older'n you. But I made a pile in that strike upriver. Ten thousand—maybe 20,000 more before it's pinched out. It's yours, as soon as you marry me. And we're going to stand before the preacher. But I got to have an answer." "Tonight?" she repeated. "Tonight I'll be puttin' you aboard the steamboat." 'All right, Dreyfus," she said softly. "I'll go with you." • • * BURKE had overcome the strongest desire to put Crotch out of the way in the Gila House, The wily surgeon from Louisiana, the doctor named Bickley, selected his top Knights with infinite care. The doctor wanted men without sentiment, and. he got them. But fundamentally they must possess judgment. And Burke had that. The moment simply was not rip« to reveal hte colors. He passed down Front Street, nearing the landing. Moisture from the river made a pleasing smell in this baked-dry desert settlement He paused at the opening between two buildings and slipped a cigar between his lips. He said, barely above a whisper, "Have you seen a snake, friend?" There was a note of discontent from the dark alley. Then Shelby Calhoon's words: "Don't giv« me that! I don't believe in your way of doing." But nevertheless we'll 60 it the way we are," Burke said impatiently. "With the gold that's coming out of La Paz we'll break the blockade, We'll have Europe beginning to deliver their guns! There'll be a wagon. If we get what we're after, it'll be loaded. You must meet it before Murphy sends his dngoons into action. Where shall we meet?" Calhoon's answer cime promptly, proving his own tvid 'faith in the other's vision. "Captain Jamison suggests > river txsnd about five milef «bov« the fort. Willows stand n««r the btnk ind will live you > Kreen. Th« Amidor wHl witch for jrvu rt duwn." (.1.
