Gray light, like a shower of pins, slabbed them and he shut them again. A slow fire was baking one side of his face; the other was ice-cold. "Johnny, Johnnyl" he could hear Sin's voice near him. "Darling— please wake up—oh, please—* "Oh, darling!" Sin breathed from somewhere in back of him "Thank God! I was so scared—' His head began to clear. They groaning en route. Then he wormed around to look at his wife. Sin had been similarly hobbled. Her red hair wai mussed nnd her bright eyes had obviously held recent tears. * • • • J OHN HENRY groped for memory. "Sin—what are you dang here? Why aren't you in I3raw- ey?" Your poor head, honey!" Sin xclaimed, ignoring the question, er eyes fixed on the lump which tiowed through the matted brown air. "Never mind me,™ he com- n a tided. "Just tell me what all lappened." Sin obedietilly repeated the gib- ng explanations she had gotten rom Vernon when he had add« John Henry to the basemen >rison. Vernon claimed the Con overs hadn't fooled him at all When they had turned the Mer cury toward Barselou's ranch, Bill why couKInt It have been thai bartender of Uut'selou's?" "Why'd they let you go then, honey?" "I didn't have anything, Barselou still wasn't sure we were the right people," said John Henry, "All that happened before yon got caught with Bnrselou's maps. That put a clincher on our guilt." "But we didn't know anything," n protested.

Down the center of the room ran a row of wooden pillars and, at eye-1 eve above the cartons, were three sma grimy windows. John Henry de cidecl this must be the cellar unde the Bar C Ranch. "What'i happened?" b« man aged. "How's your head, honey?" John Henry moved it gingerly to and fro.' "Holy cow!" he complained. "What/a headachel" "Try to sit up. Maybe you'll fee! better." ' He discovered when he tried it that his arms were asleep. They were bound in back of him. His legs, too, felt numb and a moment's careful focusing showed him his ankles had been tied together and then his legs doubled back. A rope connected his wrists with his ankles. He wriggled to a sitting position. iad just saved him the trouble o an open fight The bellboy had fol lowed them quietly and listener outside the casino door. When Si came out, he had shoved a gu into her spine and • cloth ove her mouth. A few minutes late she had been left, trussed, in Ui cellar — where she had been ever since. Vernon had' then driven Faye Jordan's coup* around th drive and s short distance down the road to persuade John Henry that Sin had actually left The story didn't help Joh Henry's head at all. He sighed "I should*' .have left Faye Jordan alone," he admitted gloomily. Sin didn't argue about this. John Henry wriggled around a bit and whistled a noiseless tune between his teeth. "But 1 don't think Faye knows anything about this ship business," he added suddenly. "Well, then who was it that put something in your drink and searched you?" Sin demanded. "1 thought it was Faye, all right E had the route to the ship— that's enough evidence tor m," John Henry replied. "H just ocs to prove that there's some- ody else mixed up in this race for he Queen, all right." "Mr. and Mrs. Jonee?" "Sure, Sin. I don't know whore oboltom fits in but he thinks ve're the Joneses. Barselou thinks •c're the Joneses, Anglin was ooking for them when he stum- Died into our cottage by mistake.*" ohn Henry's voice took on ex- Hement. "Thai's it, Sin. There re two sides. Barselou on one and he Joneses on the other. Anglin was playing on both teams and lidn't score anywhere. Barselou lidn't kill him. So who did?" 'You want me to say the onesos." "Uh-huh. So the next big question is the Joneses. This is damned mportant, baby. Are they man and wife or a team of acrobats or what?" He stopped. A scratching noise came from one of the high windows in the cellar wall across from them. Sin gulped a couple of times and whispered, "What to it, honey?" John Henry shushed her gently and k^epl watching the ground- level on the other side of the basement, It was being shoved nrmly from the outside.
