George Finewait, a portly man of meduim height, gray headed and leathery faced, called, "Mold on, John," arid Lane reined in, k JPlnovvalt came toward him with "a cup of whisky, but he said, "No, thanks,, George. Not now." "ill drink with you after a While," Lane said. Me had hired two Mexican youths to do chores around the ranch. Both of these ha'd ibeeh tending the <bar,becue spit, but one of them followed Lane to the corral to take care of the two horses. Lane then came back by the Cook- shack, looking inside it. He found I the place empty, . 'Pedro Rodri: 'guez had taken over, the cook- shack during the absence of iSchullz with the roundup wagon, and should have been .here now, cooking up grub to .go with the beef. Turning (back out, Lane stopped at the barbecue pit, asking the youth there, "Where's Pedro?" "He saddled a horse and rode away, senor." - The youth pointed toward the ' north. At first Lane could see nothing unusual in that direction, but then he noticed, high, in tho sunlit sky, a circle oi' buzzards, Lane decided that wolves had pulled down a yearling. Whatever it was, he would soon know, be' cause the height of the buzzards told him that Rodriguez had already reached the spot. He went on to join the men around the whisky keg. I , ' ' ', Finewall was chewing on a cheroot that had gone out. Relighting H, he nodded his head- at the sheriff and said to Lane, ' Tom's scared. See how white around the gills he looks." Murdo Mitchell said; ' 'Gelling hitched up to a pretty' girl is enough to scare any man." 1 I'm a mile nervous," Iho gaunt lawman said. "I admit it ' John - Lane < wasn't scai'Q or nervous,, but there was a hard knot o£ disappointment in him, Hcd hoped to slop the marriage somehow, and suddenly he real izcd he couldn't stay here and . watch this crowd make merry He wouldn't be here tomorrow, either, whan Irma toecamc the wife of this lanky badge - totoi- No, he would ride back down lo the wagon again, after a while, and slay there. Mrs, Erwin was standing in tho kitchen doorway when he put I •dipper back, She said, "John, will you come in for a moment?" Lane stepped into the kitchen sind started to follow Mrs, 13r\s into the living room, which was jioisy with the conversation ot womuifolks, Mrr.

The girl stood in the center at the room, a vision of loveliness ih While salih. "Mow do 1 look?" Lahe swallowed. "It's beeil a lofig time sihce 1 saw a girl itt a Wedding dress." Irma made a slow turn for him, lifting her skii-ls, and he crushed his hdtbrliti with a grip that whitdhed his knuckles, "Look all fieht behind?" "Prettiest thing I ever saw." Lahe said, ahd then he Was s/.if» ihg into the" girl's long » lashed eyes. The answer came to John Lane thch 1 ^ he realized why Irma was man-ying Tom Cole, Except for Mrs. Ewin, she had ho one. She had ho menfoiks what* e-Ver, and deeply hungered for male strength to draw upon when her own courage faltered. There was, for a woman, Lane knew, something solid and comforting about Tom Cole. "Wish me happines?" I r m a asked. "1 can't." ' She searched his face and said in a small voice, "Arc you angry with me, John?' Lips tight and gray eyes smoldering, he caught her by the shoulders and pulled her against him. He held her there, crushing her wedding gown. Her eyes wore pools of mystery, of understanding, too, though, and submission. Lane kissed her, hard, and part of his mind told him not to be so rough with her. He kissed her again more gentle about it. Tears welled inlo her eyes, and suddenly Lane heard someone gasp as though shocked and outraged. Someone came in the door. Irma pulled away from him, cheeks coloring. Lane turned to meet Karen Mitchell's mock ing and highly pleased stare. He said with defensive anger, "I grabbed her and kissed her. She couldn't help it." With a faint smile, the sheriff's sister sa i d, "Don't apologize to me. She not my intended.' Lane's fists tightened on his hat. "You're right, ;!M'rs. Mitchell. Tom Cole's the one I should apologize to." He went out onto the back porch. A calmer mood took pos-, sesion of him and he reflected upon the expression in Karen's eyes. Finding Irma in Lane's arms had not only pleased her; it had made her downright happy (To Be Continued) ' (Distributed by NEA Service, Inc.) To File Appeals in Virginia Case ALEXANDRIA, Va.
