What to do then? Each doR trnlner probnbly has his own method for getting a job done. There are several ways I know of, and perhaps many more I haven't heard of thnt cnn develop easting patterns. In Patch's case I felt thnt tho job could best be done by getting Patch in the hnblt of casting, but staying within ran/c. This can best be done in nn open field, nnd If one with fences or. walls nt the proper width cun be located, the job becomes much easier, If the handler walks up the center of a comparatively narrow field, the dog cnn be swung from side to side by signal. He need not slow clown In the least In these casts and If this is done often enough he will get into a habit which will be transferred to the hunting field. Incidentally, if it is desirable to cross from one piece of cover to another, It is much better to cnlf a dog to heel nnd walk with him to the new cover nnd then cast him off thntv to let him get out nhcad and then try to slow him down until you catch up. It is not consistent to expect a dog to turn It on nnd off. A good clog, like n good football player, only knows fine pace. He's either out there doing his best; or at heel Impatiently nwnlting your signal to do so. I have always considered the sound of the owner's voice to be of considerable importance to a dog when working, and I feel that dogs of the flushing breeds like to be talked to In the field. If you nnd your dog have n real understanding, I think the dog likes to stny within sound of your voice. Thus it's possible to encourage n clog to stay In close in heavy cover by speaking softly. My dogs seem to react that way and will immediately range out further \vJiori I increase the volume or raise the pitch so that they can work still hear their muster talking to them.

"When your team has to play in Fayetteville on Dad's Day, you know the opposition will be rug- gerl," Neely said today. "We naturally have been disappointed in cur record to date, but the morale of our squad is high, if our boys keep hustling, we might got a break or two and surprise .somebody. "Arkansas figures to be the favorite but we hope we can win." In addition to Johnson's running, tho Owls rely heavily on the pass- ma of Quarterback Dan Drake. The game could sec n lot of passing. Not only are McHan and Drake among the Southwest'R leading acrialists, but both of these tet-ms have boon notoriously weak on pass defense. How Arkansas' rushing attack will go without Carpenter — who is the key blocker when he isn't carrying the ball himself — remains to be seen. The starting fullback job has been handed to Larry Hoguc, a boy with a lot of straightaway power. Sophomore Kor! Kaiser probably will share tiic position.

Tho days were long, the nun hot in a cloudless sky. Occasional thunderheads blew up during the afternoons, black and threatening, but they passed with never more than a few scattered drops of rain. Tho hills took on a brown tint, and the river continued to drop. Picking a channel was tike walking a tightrope. But other boats had come this far upstream in the past. They came upon the wreckage of one, so weathered that it must have been there at least since the previous summer. It lay at the lower point of an island, half-submerged, and they halted for a look. Hot much was left, but Rawls came upon a cannon, half in mud, covered over by drift and wreckage. Apparently it had escaped observation by the Indians, or else they had known of no way to make use of it. "Hoist it aboard," Rawls instructed, and at Earnahaw's look of Incredulity, he explained. "Once it'i cleaned and polished, we have powder and we can contrive shrapnel to load it with. It may come ln r handy." Earnshaw was dubious. "Are you •ure It won't explode and kill the jjun crew If It's fired?" he asked. "That's « possibility," Rawls conceded. "But also a risk that I'd balance against some others." "You've got something there," Earnshaw agreed. A thin cheer went up when filially they reached the 'Powder Not * big; river at this season of the year, still it made a difference in the amount of water when that much was subtracted as they went on. Here the badlands were beau tiful and blsarre, a fitting settinj for the nightmare journey the: had embarked upon. Anger was building in Rawls. For himself he didn't particularly care, but holding the women a. Hostages tied his hands. Whirter had planned it that way from th first, and he was capable of carry ing out nts threat to get his way "U wouldn't te so bad if you. boat wasn't involved." Rawls sai< to Kathleen.

Such an atmos- here was here. Somehow they reached the Big Horn, flowing strong from the outh. And Whirter'a good nature amc back as a horseman appeared and signaled from the shore, a icculiar sideways and up and down notion with Uis hat. "We'll drop anchor," Whirter In- tructcd Rawls, though it was still arly. "That's the sign I've been vaiting for. The Innocents are icre with horses for the trip ever, ar>d. That fellow is one of them." Having signaled, the messenger withdrew, apparently to wait for night, Watching as the dark made black ribbon of the river, Rawls saw the man come down to the shore, a shadow merging with the vater. He called softly when he reached the Variiia and was assisted to the deck. •Thought I'd wait, just to be on the safe side," he explained. "You Mr. Whirter?" "He's on the other boat," Rawls explained. "We'll send word to him Jiat you're here," He Jed tho way ,o a cabin. In the light, the outlaw was not prepossessing. A young man gone :o seed too soon. Whiskers sproutec n patches from his face, and the rest ot him was In keeping. There was an overbold look In his eyes as 10 surveyed his surroundings. "Pretty 8ne." he said. "You tellers do yourselves well. I'm Slash Jenkyn— lately of Alder Gulch." Swagger edged the words, but they sounded like an attempt to cover inner nervousness. Whirter entered, escorted , by Earnshaw He looked at fj»wls. as i| undecided and then jerk*} Ma head. *You might 99 well ajay," he suggested, "You're in this now with tilt rest ot us."

"Yeah, some of the boys are lOldln' a cavy, back on shore. You oilers know how to ride?" he asked curiously. Most of our men were In the avalry," Whirter explained curt- y. "How is everything?" "Couldn't be bettor, I reckon. Everybody minin' lots of gold and afraid to ship it out." His smile vas crocked. "We've seen to that. When they tried it, it didn't get ar, an' neither did them that was akin' it. It'll be rich pickin's." He explained that his compan- ons were keeping back out of sight, as he had done, until sure of the lay of the land. It paid -to ie careful, these days., No fault could be found with that, though there had been sign of Indians for more than week, and Jenkyn reported that his mrty had seen no recent sign. rVlurter inclined to the opinion t^iat they nad finally grown tired of pursuing two boats that were obviously t,oo strong for a successful attack. Now, with extra men on shore to bolster their party, he was confident ot a swift foray overland, a devastating attack on the gold camps, and success. Daylight brought confirmation of Jenkyn's story. There was a broad open plain here on the southern shore, except for a single clump of cottonwood trees, a couple of acres In extent, a quarter of a mile back from the r^ver. On the open ground appeared a full two hundred head of horses, sleek cayuse stock being herded by half a dozen riders. "The rest of the boys'U be havln' breakfast back at camp," Jenkyn explained, with a wave to where a wisp of smoke showed. "There's a dozen more of 'em—twenty of us in all. Plenty to make any Injuns think twice, but we didn't aim to take no chances, and we ain't seen ary sign of a redskin all the way here," ^ "We'll go ashore and get started right away," Whirter decided, Days before, with cool forethought, he had had packs made up for those who would make the trip, small turkeys containing only bare necessities — a blanket, matches, sufficient food, and extra ammunition for the guns. Eacb man would carry this on Us back until mounted. Turning back, be picked Us men, most of them eager to volunteer now that prospects looked bright. Eighty were selected, sines that would give a hundred in all, a force ample for a surprise raid. That left an extra horse apiece for relays, Jeaitya assured him that pick horse* would be easy to aecur* H HOU STAR, H*vemtM»r 7, T9S2 Chick Yttunf i jtmm FROM NOW CM, THERE S) GOING TO BE A PLACE < FOR EVERVtHING,ANO EVERVTHING IS GOING TO BE IN ITS PLACE M GOING TO iET MV TOOLS AND BUILD A HELP WITH CLOTHES HOOKS N THE HALL ANVBOOV L~l SUCH L SEEN K^ CAP?/CARELESSNESS 'VE LOST MV SWEATER OH.
