CHAPTER I—K. C. Rlckard, an" engi
neer of the Overland Pacific, la called to
the office of President Marshall In Tuc
son, Ariz. "Casey" Is an enigma to the
of flee force; he wears "dude" clothes,
but he had resigned a chair of engineer
ing In the East to go on the road as a
fireman and his promotion had been spec
tacular. While waiting for Marshall Rlck
ard reads a report on the ravages of the
Colorado, despite the efforts of Thomas
Hardin of the Desert Reclamation com
pany. This Hardin had been a student
under Rlckard and had married Gerty
Holmes, with whom Rlckard had fancied
he was In love.
CHAPTER ll—Marshall tells Rlckard
the Overland Pacific has got to step In
to save 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 the irrigated desert and
learns much about Hardin and his work.
CHAPTER IV—At the hotel he meets
Mr. and Mrs. Hardin and Innes Hardin,
Hardin's halt sitter. Disappointed in her
husband and an Incorrigible coquette,
Mrs. Hardin seta her cap for her former
lover and Invites him to dinner.
CHAPTER V—Rlckard visits the com
pany's offices and takes control. He finds
the engineers loyal to Hardin and hos
tila to him. Estrada, a Uexlcan, son of
the "Father of the Imperial Valley," tells
blm of the general situation.
CHAPTER Vl—Rlckard attends a
meeting of the directors and asserts hi*
authority. Hardin rages. Estrada tells
Rlckard of hla foreboding that his work
will fall. "I can't see It finished."
CHAPTER Vll—lnnes Is discovered in
her garden. She tries to cheer up Hardin,
Who is furloua aaalnst 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 tide" In Rlckard'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 fighting chance" on
the completion of Hardin's pet project,
a gate to shut the break In the river.
CHAPTER VTII—A family luncheon of
the Hardlns which throws light on them.
CHAPTER IX—foardln discovers that
Rlckard Is planning a levee to protect
Calexlco and puts him down as Incom
petent. Oerty thinks her lord Jealous.
CHAPTER Xll—San Francisco Is de
stroyed by earthquake and Are. 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 station.
CHAPTER Xlll—Oerty Hardin decides
that Rlckard still loves her and plans a
campaign that promises trouble.
XIV—The progressive rid
Is begun under adverse condition*—win
and duit, with the guest of honor absent
Then MaoLenn, Rlckard's secretary
brings word that the river la raging ant
•very man la wanted on the levee.
CHAPTER XV—Hardin motor® off with
a load of dynamite, leaving everything In
confusion on the levee. Innes, through a
friendly engineer, Issues prder* In her
brother's name, to save her brother's
face. The levee and the signal tower save
Calexlco till Rickard's return. +
CHAPTER XVl—Gerty Hardin begins
to get really Interested In Rlckard. The
wind blows a gale and the levee Is in
The Walk Home.
Claudia Marshall sat at the head of
her stately table in the Palmyra, mate
as a statue but for the burning eyes
which followed her Tod. To Innes,
her guest, It was a tragic presence, of
Late hours, excitement, might
abridge the life she so passionately
policed; but she would not demand
the sacrifice of his cigar.
Marshall's cigar followed the coffee.
Tony, the white-capped Italian cook of
the I'almyra, was removing the cups.
Innes was carrying her double Inter
est, listening to Tod Marshall's broad
sweep, getting a new-viewpoint as he
minimized the local scheme—feeling
that silent presence at the head of the
Then something drove Claudia from
her mind. What Mr. Marshall had said
swept a disturbing calcium on Tom.
What If, truly, the river fiasco could
be traced to that overzealous hand? To
loin, tilts undertaking blotted out the
rest of related big endeavor; but that
was not the way her host was looking
at it. He was too courteous to give
her discomfort; he had not said It di
rectly. Hut always it met her, rose up
to smite her, wherever she was. Was
It not egotism, personal pride, that was
making her cover her eyes, Ilk* any
simple ostrich? Her brother —assume
him anybody else's brother! The
tlredge fiasco—the wild night at the
levee —no Isolated accidents those.
Hardin's luck 1
A flush of miserable shame came to
her. How they had all been trying to
spare her —Kduardo, these kindly Mar
shalls—Mnt-Lean ! She was turning.
Impulsively, to ask Tod Marshall if be
thought, could he fliink it probable
that they would fall, when a step that
sent the blood to her face took the
car's stairs at two leaps. Now, In
deed, the dinner was spoiled.
"That's Rlckarc'. I forgot to tell yoo
that I asked him to dinner. He couldn't
get away. He said he'd run In tot cof

their evening; Mr. Marshall had busi

Mrs. Marshall would not hear of It.
She said that Mr. Marshall would
never forgive her if she let Miss Har
din go home alone. Her opposition
was softly implacable.
Innes went back to the sitting room
of the car angrily coerced. Itlcknnl
was still closeted, conversationally,
with his superior.
At last, desperately, she rose to go.
Of course, he must Insist upon going

her at his touch.

people would fall Into easy give-and

she could not be casual. And she
would not force It. He had brought

Oppressive that silence. Then It
came to her that she would iisk him
the question that his coming had abort
ed. A glance at his face found him
smiling. He found It amusing? Not
for worlds, then, would she speak. And
they stalked along. Unconsciously she
had pulled herself away from him. Ho
took her hand and put It In the crotch
of his arm. "That's better," he said.
She wondered if he were still smiling.
Their path led by his tent. Neither
of them noticed a subdued light
through the canvas walls. As they
reached the place a figure darted from

It came so quickly that he was not
ready; nor indeed had Oerty's innuen

was uncomfortable. He turned sharp
ly to the Mexican.
"Come In," he took her roughly by
the arm. She would wake up the camp
wtth her crying. He put her Tn a chair.
"Now your story." The woman
had got to be a nuisance. He couldn't
have her comlrg around like this. He
had seen that look In the girl's eyes—

the story Rlckard had heard before.
Would the senor give his respected
permission for notices to be posted
about the camp? A description of the

favor would be inestimable.
Rlckard saw the notice later that
day. It was nailed to the back plat

keep on appointment with him. They

odd flash of startling beauty, the veil

put out his hand to steady her. She
stood recovering herself, regaining her
spent breath. Itickard remembered
that this was the first time he had seen

since the meeting with the Mexican

Later, when she was lying on her
bed, faQe downward, routed, she tried
to analyze that possessive challenge of
his gaze, but It eluded words. She
summoned her pride, but the meaning
called her, sense and mind and soul
of her. It cried to ber: "I, Casey

the mate for you. And I'm gotng to

Oh, yes, she was angry with him;
she had some pride. "Why didn't he

ample time, to tell him that It was
