His red oyc.?, hooded by pufty lids, gleamed. He said, "Why, you did, Mr. Jones," "That doesn't matter," snid Barsclou impatiently, ignoring the shocked faces across the table "Anglin's a dead issue, He doesn't interest me any more." "Well, he interests me," said John Henry hotly, "particularly if it boils down to a mistake in our name." "Which is not Jcmre," Sin added Barselou laughed suddenly There was no amusement to shared in the sound. "1 hirec AngJin last year to find (he Queen I was to pay him so much ove expenses. A week ago, Anglin saic he was on the right track. Th galleon was somewhere in - th Badlands and he was figuring ou a route I could follow through th canyons to reach her, beginning a a fixed starling point which w agreed on." "Oh!" Sin clapped her hands U' over her mouth. The significant of Uie combination in the mechan ical pencil had just come to her John Henry nudged her under th table with a warning knee. * * * "OARSELOU'S chilly eyes watche the byplay. "Yesterday Odei found out that Anglin wasn't play g ail his card* over the board." "He thought he'd play it smart." >dell muttered and his mouth con- racted bleakly. "Anglin had wired to a Mr. and 1rs. Jonec in San Diego Idling icm that he'd found the Queen. Vhat exactly Angflin had in his lind, I don't know—perhaps he ntended to force my price up, ^Or laybe h« intended to collect from wo people instead of one." Bar- clou's blunt nails punched into iis palms. "However, Mr. and Irs. Conover—or Jones—I will not ilay parlor games." Sin protested faintly, "But we're iol the—" "We tried to get lo Anglin before TG saw you. We couldn't. So we ricd lo bluEI you out. That didn'i work either. Then—" he looked o Odcll "—Anglin got himself shot. John Henry safd quickly am desperately t "You know we didn' vill him, Barselou. You were rig aehind me. He was shot in the jack and fell into my arms." "1 can't remember, Conover." "If you think we killed Anglin then turn us over lo the police— T Barselou bared his teeth in wha was meant lo be a grin. "You don' gel the point, Conover. 1 don' care who you are or what you'V' done. All I want from you Is th other halt of Ihe puzzle. Anglii had only one thing that was wortl a damn—and that was the rout I need to find the Queen." After a long silence, John Henrj spoke. He said carefully, "I'm no saying we have the route, Barse Ion. But if we have—and hand over to you—what next? The la; guy that had the Queen informa tion for you got killed at you door." • • • n ARSELOU and O d e 11 ex changed glances. The big ma put a mask of friendliness over h granite features. "My lifelong po icy in a rough busineyjs has bee to nvoirt bloodshed. Give me the formation, Conover, and .vont oubles me over. As soon us*I've ;nfied the dope, you're as free ; birds." John Henry looked at his wife, nsely upright (n her chair. "I know you Won't go (o tht olice," Barselou went on smooth. ', "because if you did I'd have to ;I1 Lieutenant Lay that there's n antipmU m blood by the door of 'oUiige 15. which you occupied isl night. Gayner sow it this torning. We think it's Anglin'i lood. The police would b« glad o lest it for us." Sin's eyes were big and hopeful nd her dark-red tresses swayed ack and forth acro5E her shoul- ers slightly. "Okay," sain 1 John lenry. "Now you're talking sense. Con- vor." "Let me talk to my wife alone or a minute or two and I'll give •on llic route/ 1 "You'll have to do your talking if-ht here In this room," Barsclon demurred firmly s "You don't get i of my sight." John Henry rose and Sin fol- owcd him over to the chuck-a- uck tables along Ihe side of the room. Odell had his hnnd in his coal pocket-again. Sin whispered, Johnny, what are we goinR to do?" "Can you remember that combination, honey?" "I guess so. You wanl me to tell them?" John Henry shook his head fiercely, "Not on your life Jvist clo as 1 say." He rasped the top sheet off a long tolly pad on the next table, Then he went back lo Barselou. "Pencil," Conover said. The other man silently produced one. John Henry took the equipment back to the corner where Sin was absently lurninR ihe wire die* cage. The tumbling cubes awoke minute rattling echoes in the stiU casino. "Okay." he muttered.
