CHAPTER I-K. C. Rlckard. an engi
neer of the Overland Pacific, is called to
the office of President Marshall in Tuc
•on. Arls. "Caiey" la an enigma to the
office force; he wean "dude" clothes,
but he had resigned a chair of engineer
ing In the East to go on the road as a
fireman and hi* promotion had been spec
tacular. While waiting for Marshall Rlck
ard reads a report on the ravages of the
I Colorado, despite the efforts of Thomas
1 Hardin of the Desert Reclamation com
pany. This Hsrdln had been a student
under Rlckard and had married Oertr
Holmes, with whom Rlckard had fancied
ha was In love.
CHAPTER H—Marshall tells Rlcksrd
the Overlsnd Pacific has sot to step In
to ssve the Imperial Valley and sends
him to the break. Rlckard declines be
cause he does not want to supplant Har
din, but Is won over. "Stop the river;
damn the expense," says Marshall.
CHAPTER lll—Rlckard Journeys to
Calexlco, sees ths Irrigated desert and
learns much about Hardin and his work.
CHAPTER IV—At tin hotel he meets
Mr. and Mrs. Hardin and Innes Hardin,
Hardin's half sister. Disappointed In her
husband and an Incorrigible coquette,
Mrs. Hardin sets her cap for her farmer
lover and Invites him to dinner.
CHAPTER V—Rlcksrd visits the com
pany's offices and takes control. He finds
the engineers loyal to Hardin and hos
tile to him. Estrada, a Mexican, son of
the "Father of the Imperial Valley," tells
him of the general situation.
CHAPTER Vl—Rlckard attends a
meeting of the directors and asserts his
authority. Hardin rages. Estrada tells
Rlckard of his foreboding that hla work
will Vail. "I can't see It finished."
CHAPTER Vll—lnnes Is discovered In
her garden. She tries to cheer up Hardin,
who Is furloua asalnst Rlckard.
CHAPTER X—The Hardin dinner to
Rlckard discloses further the family char
acteristics. Hardin Is surly and sulky.
Innes Is hardly polite. Gerty plans a
"progressive ride" la Rlcksrd's honor,
CHAPTER Xl—Rlckard encounters the
Insubordination of the company's engi
neers. He Is stirred by the Indians' state
ment that this is the hundredth year of
a cycle, when the Great Yellow Dragon,
the Colorado, grows restless. He makes
various preparations, pushes work on
the Calexlco levee and Is ordered by
Marshall to "take a lighting chance" on
the completion of Hardin's pet project,
a gate to shut the break In the* river.
CHAPTER VIII—A family luncheon of
the Hardlns which throws light on them.
CHAPTER IX—feardtn discovers that
Rlckard Is planning a levee to protect
Calexlco and puts him down as Incom
petent. Gerty thinks her lord jealous.
CHAPTER Xll—San Francisco Is de
stroyed by earthquake and fire, and dredge
machinery, which Rlckard had ordered
Hardin to have shipped. Is burned through
Hardin's neglect. Rlckard secretly equips
the big water tower as a signal atatlon.
CHAPTER XHl—Gerty Hsrdln decides
thst Rlckard still loves her and plans a
campaign that promises trouble.
CHAPTER XlV—The progressive ride
Is begun under adverse conditions—wind
and dust, with the guest of honor absent.
Then Mac Lean, Rlckard's secretary,
brings word that the river Is raging and
every man Is wanted on the levee.
CHAPTER XV—Hardin motors off with
a load of dynamite, leaving everything In
confusion on the levee. Innes, through %
friendly engineer, Issues orders In her
brother's name, to save her brother's
face. The levee and the signal tower save
Calexlco till Rlckard's return.
CHAPTER XVl—Gerty Hardin begins
to get really Interested In Rlckard. The
wind blows a gale and the levee la In
CHAPTER XVll—Women as well aa
men work on the levee the second night.
Innes finds Rlcksrd and Gerty together
and begins to suspect her slater-ln-lsw.
Her brother's wrongheadedness and Rlck
ard's evident efficiency only serve to em
bitter Innes against Rlckard.
CHAPTER XVIII—The river washes
away half of Mexican, Calexlco's Mexi
can twin city, but Calexlco still stands.
CHAPTER XIX—A stormy public meet
ing Is held In which representatives of
the settlers, the Overland Pacific and
Mexico clash. A telegram from Rlckard
that the river has broken out again saves
a big row snd forces united action by all.
A Boft Nook.
Innes traveled, gleefully, In a ca
boose, from Hamlin Junction to the
Heading. She could not stay away a
day longer! Never before hud Los
Angeles been a discipline. Why had It
fretted her, made her restless, home
sick? Then she had discovered the
reason; history was going on down
yonder. Going on, without her. She
knew that that was what was pulling
ber; that only I
The exodus of engineers had started
rlverward In July. Gerty went with
Tom, and she had made it distinctly
clear that it wns not necessary for In
nes to follow them. Ridiculous for two
women to coddle a Tom Hardin I Un
less Innes had a special Interest!
Her pride had kept her away. But
Tom did not write; Gerty's letters were
•octal and unsatisfactory; the newspa
per reports inflamed her. The day be
fore she had wired Tom that she was
comlai;. She bad to be there at th
Geity welcomed ber stiffly. Assum
ing a conscientious hostess-ship, sb«
caught fire at her waning enthusiasms.
Gerty looked younger and prettier.
Her flush accentuated her childish fea
tures which were smiling down ber an
noyance over this uninvited visit
"We have ail the home comforts,
haven't we? Why shouldn't we be com
fortable when we are to be here for
months? I'm going to brave It out—to
the bitter end, even If I bake. It is my
duty—" She would make her Intention
perfectly clear! "There ought to be at
least one cozy place, one soft nook
that suggests a woman's presence. We
have tea here In the afternoon, some
times. Mr. Illckard drops In." The
last was a delicate stroke. '
"Afternoon tea? At the Front? I»
this modern warfare?" The girl draped
her Irony with a smile.
Gerty was stealing a pleased survey
In the mirror through the rough door
that opened Into the division called
her bedroom. The sunburned, uncon
scious profile of Innes was close to bee
gwn. Pink and golden tfre head by the
dark one. 'She looked younger even
than Innest Good humor returned to
"We are going to dine on the Delta
tonight" She pinned up a "scolding
lock," an ugly misnomer for her sunny
clinging curls I The mirror was requi
sitioned again. "That's the name of
the new dredge. It was christened
three weeks ago, In champagne
brought from Yuma."
"You said dine on the Delta. Do yon
mean they have meals there?"
."You should seb It," cooed Gerty.
"It's simply elegant It's a floating
hotel, has every convenience. The
camp cook, Ling, has his hands full."
"Going to wear that?" They were
standing now by the door of Gerty'a
dressing tent Over the bed a white
lingerie gown was spread.
"I live In them. It's so hot," shrugged
Gerty Welcomed Her Btlffly.
"I'll look like your maid, Gerty!" In
nes' exclamation was rueful. "1 didn't
bring anything but khakis. Oh, yes! I
temember throwing In, the Inst minute,
two piques to fill up space."
"Why, we have dances on the Delta,
and Sunday evening concerts. You
knew the work at Laguna dam Is being
held up? The government men of the
Reclamation Service are down here all
the time. But it's time to be getting
Later, Tom flatly refused to accom
"I thought as much." Gerty shrugged
an airy Irresponsibility. Innes could
detect no regret.
They passed a cot outside the tent
"Who sleeps there?"
"Tom." The eyes of the two women
did not meet.
Innes made no comment
"He finds the tent stuffy." Gerty's
Hps were prim with reserve. They
walked toward the river In silence. A3
they repched the encampment, Gerty
recovered her vivacity.
"That's Mr. Blckard's office, that
ramada. Isn't It quulnt? And that's
his tent; no, the other one. MucLean's
Is next; there's Junior, now."
But his eyes were too full of Innes to
see Gerty's dimples. The difference In
the quality of his greetings smote Gerty
like a blow. And she had never con
sidered Tom's sister attractive, as a
possible rival. Yet, after a handshake,
she snw that to Mac Lean, Jr., sho did
Gerty wns deeply piqued. Until now,
the field had been hers. She might per
haps have to change her opinion of
Tom's sister. Boys, she had to con
cede, the younger men. might find her
attractive, boyishly congenial; older
men would fall to see a charm I
The arrangement at table annoyed
Gerty. The boss, Mac Lean explained
gaily, would not be there for dinner.
He might come In later. Two men from
the Reclamation Service tried to enter
tain Mrs. Hardin.
"It Isn't a battle." Innes looked
around the gay rectangle. • t ft t s play I"
The thought followed her that eve-"
nlng. Outside, where the moonlight
was silvering the deck, and the quiet
river lapped the sides of the dredge,
Jose's strings, and his "amlgo's" t)irob

lusion of peace convincing. This was
no battle. It was easy to believe her

turned his head, Innes recognized the
■tiff back and straight poised head and
dancing step of Bickard. She admit
ted he bad distinction, grudgingly. She
could not think of him except compara
tively; always antithetically, balanced
against her Tom.
"I'm tired; let's rest here." Innes
drew Into the shadow of the great anr
of the dredge. They watched th«
dancers as they passed, MacLenn play

Because she was Tom's sister, she had
a right to resent It, to refuse to meel

Going In with Mac Lean, Jr., to the

Bickard, on his way out Bhe man

GRAHAM, N. C., THURSDAY. MAY 28, 1919
, To her surprise, Rlckard penetrated
her curtain of shadows.
"Our dance, Miss Hardin? Give Ul
'Sobr' Las Olas,' again, Jose."
The hand that barely touched hla
arm was stiff with antagonism. 8h«
told herself that he had to dance with
her—politeness, conventionality, de
manded It But, Instantly, she forgot
her resentment, and forgot their awk
ward relation. It was his dancing, not
Gerty's, then, that waa "superb." Any
body oould find skill under the leader,
ahlp of that Irresistible atep. And then
the motion claimed her. She thought
of nothing; they moved aa one to the
liquid falling beat ,
The music dropped them suddenly,
Rotating them at the stern of the deck.
The silence was complete. Rlckard
broke It to aak her what ahe thought of

blundered through her Impression of
the lightness, the gayety.

Rlckard stood waiting to be dis

looked taller, older; there was a flame
of accusing passion In her eyes.
It was his minute of revelation. So
that waa what the camp thought I The
wife of Hardin—Hardin 1 Why, he'd
been only polite to her—they were old

"Oh, yes," she cried, relief In her
Rlckard did not claim his dance
with Mrs. Hardin. He stood where
the girl had left him, thinking. A few
minutes later, Gerty swept by In the
arms of Breck. Later, came Innes
with Junior; the two, thinking them
selves unseen, romping through a two
step like two young children. He was
never shown thnt side of her. Goy as

A minute later, he was being rowed
back to camp.
A Complete Camp.
"Complete, Isn't It?" Estrada was
leading Innes Hardin through tbe en
"Yes, It's complete!"
Her Brother had told her at break
fast that morning how grandly they
bad been wasting time! She would
not let herself admire tbe precision of
the arrangements, the showers back of
the white men's quarters, the mesqult
shaded kitchen. Gerty's elaborate set
tling was of a piece. It would seem,
with the new management. House
keeping, not fighting, then, tbe new
order of things!
Tom was afire to get his gate done.
81ie knew what it meant to him; to

be controlled. That depended, Tom
had proved to her, on tbe gate. And

wnnted to add "and dissensions." The

—"and your brother's zeal, and ths

The camp formed a hollow trape
zium ; the Hardlns' tents, and Mrs.
Dowker's, were Isolated on the short
parallel. Rlckard's ramada and his

Across, towsrd tbe river, behind Mng's
mesqultes, began another polygon, ths
camp of foremen and white labor.
Some of these tents were empty.

"Mexico." She wondered why ha

"I can see It all from here." Not for

At table, that evening, her family
heard with surprise deity's announce

tent with the men. It was too hot to
cook any longer; this had been one of
the hottest days In tbe year.
She expected to hear a protest to
the new arrangement from Tom. She
was to see a new development—sullen
resignation. If be would accept It, she
must not argue. Both sister and broth
