(liieenle, ied to become hU VIII •4 .^ hour later s.ie saw Crotch *- so sculling up the cabin deck's lauuer. The mate, Goss, was tak- Irji; the watch with a revolver strapped to his waist. The deck hands standing sentry positions were all armed and most oX them wc;re wearing bandages. 'ie decks were quiet now exec., for the snoring miners. Be- sL.e her Dreyfus lay, breathing heavily. Now that Dreyfus had •withdrawn his arm from her she slipped from the blanket, intend- in" to take a turn about the deck. "t of the engine pit the river w...d took on added heat from the boiler and here the deck was cbar of sleepers. Eie was about to i-lurn vviien siie discovered Radclifl Burke standing beside the paddle whecL T'l spite of herself her heart gave a lift '.rke's c; cs \wre dark and sl..ny, ! it except for this he walked toward her with a jland, nioUonloss expression, t'hc knew he was displeased at finding her aboard. "ou've j « — .^^, he si.._ o.'.d dropped his hand on her L/m. 'ou shouldn't have followed." lut I haven <. IOIIUV.L.—" ou're lying!" He glanced att be.i.nd the paddles; his mind was beginning to whisper how easy it w -jld be to drop her into the ri .er, to make an cud of this now. ?r words were falling against h.s c:ir, irritating his mood still further. "!'ll never tell anyone, HaclcUS. 'i lie things ot the past ; behind us uiing we ve said and done. I'll not tell how you became a Knight* Fe gave a slight start and the full blackness of his eyes struck her. "I ought to make sure you'll never say that out loud. It would be so easy to lilence you." His hand traveled upward and stopped against her throat. But she was conscious only of the touch of his fingers; she was helpless now, as she always had been. His fingers were hurting her throat, yet she stood before him ' clinging to a love that hadn't died. Suddenly he pulled her tight His mouth came down liungrily after her lips. For no comprehensible reason the pattern ot his thinking had become as starkly clear as though he had told it. Burke had come to her at first meaning to put her out of the way. His plan had changed because he saw now that it was not necessary. He would make love come alive anew; he would use her until h« had enough and then discord her somewhere along the river as i man throws away a ragged coat. When he drew apart for his look at her she told him, fiercely: "Don't ever try it again. Don't ever come near me! You're sordid, cheap—Burke; you're nothing but a renegade!" LEt'ORE dawn the banging of iron .fire doors made further sleep impossible. Crotch gave his whistle cord a tug, calling aboard those who had camped ashore A few minutes later there was a so(t cough of steam from the escape pipe and the stern paddles were chopping the water. The General Heath was • shallow draft, flat-bottomed packet Eighteen inches of water could float her. In this respect she w«s •dmlrabji »da£lsd to the Qerfo- _ao wiipse swirling wairlpooj tore away sand bars and deposited islands where a few hours before had been ri.'er channel Each passage was its own experience of grazing rocks and hanging up on s^nd bars, ol pushing her free.

C.ie man » .h a deeply bandaged forehead bad brought antelope steak and biscuit. Crotch noticed the bandage, and this made him wonder if this man had been in last night's fight. No oubt he had, and now Crotch elt the urge to pitch the man over the raiL BURKE came down the ladder, paused beside the rail, listening 0 the exhaust of the engine. It would take them several days to each La Paz. Then would com* he chance lor another try at the ifles. As he mused, a voice spoke larshly beside him, "I see a face." Burke shoved hifi jet-black tj yes around to the man, a trucu- eni, coarse-faced fellow, and aid coolly, "The captain win suspect that bandage. You're • 001 to come aboard!" "You're a cool one!" the man -eplied. "Last night we had hem licked. What made you kill Belaire?" Burke paused while the bitter recollections of that fight again drew his mouth down tight. H lad been close, but there had been no help for it. And now the Amador was behind him and Jamison would be jearching for i wagonload of rifles that wasn't there. After that he would continue upriver, but he would search long and for that fruitless effort b* would make Crotch sufTer. "I shot Belaire b*c»i-se he wai trying to take over our show," he said. "I warned him not to start shooting. A man that can't accept orders is no good to us." Burke walked on. Beside th« rail he spied Crotch, silently watching.
