Chapter 20 RODEO Dirk was to wonder in the succeeding days if Hope had somehow divined his arrangement with Martin, for she went nowhere during the clay. Nothing happened. Certainly the watchers at the gate were discovering no reason for being there. Dirk thought of discharging them, still calling himself a fool; then, in a recurring mood of caution, permitted them to remain. But he made up his mind to keep them only a month longer. One evening, coming home early, and entering the library, he found Hone at the telephone. She put the receiver casually, though quickly, Into place, greeting him in a low voice. The room was almost dark, and he could not see her face. "Take me to the rodeo?" she asked. Dirk, drawing off his gloves, was aware of a tension, a disquiet, In the room. HP asked when the rodeo was to be "It begins tomorrow," she told him. "Madison Square Garden. The two weeks before the horse-show. I want to go the evening of thn twenty-fifth, and Rupert may not be in town. He doesn't want me to go alone." She war, moving about the room, had lit a coppery shaded lamp to add its glow to the firelight, was drawing the dark-green curtains at the windows, rearranging the bowl of marigolds on the table with swift brown. fingers. She stood presently beside the hearth, looking down at the coals, drawing her skirts away. The warmth and light oi' the room .seemed to comn from her still, red figure, rather than from the fire. Dirk could see her face In the small, silver-wreathed mirror on the mantel. She was smiling tremulously. "I know you think it's comical," she said,. "Rupert's not wanting me to go alone. He doesn't know, of course, how much I've knocked Dirk's eyes. A look of horror broke across her face. She bent over the fire. Horror smote Dirk also. Horror that she should catch him spying on her. or seeming to spy. He went to her side "If there's anything. . . Listen to me, Hope. I'd do anything for you. Anything on earth. Do you understand?" She looked up at him. smiling now. her words a little shaken. "Understand? Of course," she around by myself. Unless She HOMIi HUNTERS A throng of 50,000 persons, ac- fording to M. V. Casey, in the New York Herald Tribune, descended on Long Island recently in the great- j est housing hunt in history. They! came, Mr. Cnsey said, to inspect tho hundreds of homes which have recently been built in 50 towns and villages on the Island within recent months. Veteran developers and builders told Mr. Casey the present desire for a home exceeds anything they have ever seen. Prices, incidentally, are on the rise in that district. Mr. Casey says that builders in the next ten days will announce increases up to $500. He adds that in the Long Island development millions of dollars are being spent weekly and that thousands more of building mechanics and laborers are. employed, and and more are being called daily to the field. gave him a quick look. "Unless you've told him. Have you?" Dirk answered in a low voice, "How could I tell him what I don't know?" "But you know," she said, "about the circus " "The circus, yes. But I promised not to mention that. Do you think J would break my word?" She was silent, looking at the live. Dirk put his answer more positively. "I have told nothing. I shall tell nothing. You may trust me." He had not moved, nor she, yet suddenly they seemed close. Some barrier had melted between them, some tension cased. She was turned away from him, but the little mirror showed him her fnrp movim convulsively.' She seemed to be Smith, secretary; C. L. Upham, Lion tamer; Joe Tooley, tailtwister; Hemp Slumps; Filipinos Whittle POETE, P. I. (/P)—Wood carving, an art of this town in Laguna province for 250 years, is being revived. The art went into a slump a few years ago when hemp became the main business. Now hemp is in a slump and GO per cent of the population are carving wood. striving for composure before facing him again. Presently she looked up and in the mirror caught said. "Ask something of me," he insisted. "Anything." "I do Take me to the rodeo." The moment was gone. She was laughing now, smoothing her hair at the little mirror, for they heard Rupert in the hall. She must always, thought Dirk, be smooth' and beautiful for Rupert. As for the rodeo, he Raid he would order seats. "I've already ordered them," she answered. "I was ordering them when you came in." On the twenty-fifth it seemed «> likely thai Rupert would be at homo thai Dirk exchanged Hope's seats for a box. and invited Isa- jel. In the end Rupert wont with them Hopo had seemed gayer with Dirk since their meeting in the library, and at tho same time more intent on avoiding him. The night of tho rodeo she left him entirely to Isabel, sitting on Rupert's other hand, keeping Rupert's substantial bulk' between them, so that Dirk could rarely see her face. It was natural that she should want to see the rodeo, oven in what Dirk foil must be their unsympathetic company. Tin- rodeo was the .sort of horse-show to which she had been bred. Dirk watched the bronco riding, wondering why he had never thought to visit a rodeo before. Isabel watched too, apparently less bored than usual, wearing a dark spoils-suit, and a boyish hal. She would be bored before it was over, but now she was interested even in the cowboys who, not taking part in Ihc events, squatted on their heela about the arena, look- ,ng on. Sometimes when a cow 01 a bucking horse became too general in ils activities they leaped aside, climbing the chutes or the rails of the boxes. Rupert asked why they were there, and passed her reply along to Dirk and Isabel. "They're studying the horses, watching to see if a horse takes a long neck, or a short one." It was during the- steer-wrestling thai :i vast scrumbli' occurred in the arena, and a cowboy leaped neatly into their box "Tl mi's the craziest stoor wc'vo got," lie apologised, as Rupert to m;iki> room for him. "Some devil." Dirk had boon watching the .stoor. and tho cowboy, mounted on him. Even as they looked, thn boy left his horse. It-aped to the steer's back, grabbing him below the horns. The steer whirled and twisted, lay suddenly on the ground, all four feet extended. . . The cowboy in the box heaved a sigh and smiled. "Lucky Dan's in the money, all right," he said "I though he was crazy, trying to wrestle Lucifer. None of us thought a New York kid could do it. Lucifer's killed two men. Westerners." Rupert was interested. "Lucky Dan from New York?" he asked. "So they say," answered the cowboy. "I sure don't believe it now." "Why not?" inquired Isabel. The visiting cowboy was tall with keen grey eyes and skin as brown as a mango. "We have ranches here," she added. He appeared to observe her for Ihe first time. His grey eyes held admiration, and repressed amusement. Teachers Added At Mines College EL PASO, May 30—Several visitors will serve on the 1936 summer faculty of the College of Mines, and metallurgy, a branch of the University of Texas, according to Dr. D. M. Wiggins, president. The summer session opens June 8, the first term extending tc July 14, the second from July 15 ten August 22. Dr. O. O. Walls, visiting professor in chemistry will be here from Hardin-Simmons University, and Dr. Rex Strickland, visiting "Yes, Ma'am," he agreed politely, ind leaped over the rail. Rupert sat down again, but not before Dirk had seen Hope, leaning: orward in her chair, .staring into ,he arena with white face and fix- id eyes. She was watching the New York cowboy, listening to the negaphone voice of a judge pro- laimlng Lucky Dan's triumph over incifor. There was an immense sound of applause, and Lucky Dan look off its sombrero, disclosing a grave voung face, and a blond head. He jowed, never smiling, scarcely .eeming to care. Dirk watched him leave the arena. Something in his walk, something In the way he had taken off the sombrero— Where, Dirk asked himself, had he seen Lucky Dan before? Where witnessed those automatic gestures, thai slightly bowed gull? Did he imagine he hold a memory of them because the boy was so plainly Hope's reason for being here? .... Next day Dirk inquired at the rodeo-offices about Lucky Dan. He had come, indeed, from a ranch upstate, had only lately entered the contests, under the management of his father, a bellicose individual named Jones. "As for the boy," .said Dirk's informant, an arena director in a ten-gallon hat,, "as for lhal kid he's got the face of an angel. Golden hair and blue eyes." him nor his dad mixes much with the crowd, so it's not easy to know 'em. Nobody likes Jones. He bullies the kid, but the kid don'l seem lo mind. Dirk asked when Lucky Dan would ride again "Can't tell you that, at least not hi advance He got in late, and h<? has to wait every time till somebody drops out. Of course we knew ahead when he was goin' to wres- .le Lucifer. That's how he got in, offerln' to bulldog old Lucifer." And that was how Hope had known that she wanted to see the •odeo on Ihe twenty-fifth. Dirk wondered if she would ask to go again. That night he directed the detectives to look up the history of the Jonses, father and son. That history, he had no doubt, was closely woven with the riddle of Hope.
