"THE LIGHTOF WESTERN
TH| c PURPLE
COfYHOHT, IT HAAPtt AND MOTHtU
Duane had only one plan—the only
plan possible in this case—and that
was to make the river-bottoms, where
he might elude his pursuers In the
willow brakes. Fifteen miles or so
would bring him to the river, and this
was not a hopeless distance for any
good horse if not too closely pressed.
He began to hope and look for a trail
or a road turning off to right or left
There was none. A rough, mesqulte
dotted and yucca-spired country ex
tended away on either side. Duane
believed that he would be compelled to
take to this hard going. One thing
was certain—he had to go round the
village. The river, however, was on
the outskirts of the village; and once
in the willows, he would be safe.
Dust-clouds far ahead caused his
alarm to grow. He watched with his
eyes strained; ha hoped to see a
wagon, a few stray cattle. But no,
he soon descried several horsemen.
Shots and yells behind him attested
to the tact that his pursuers likewise
had seen these newcomers on the scene.
More than a mile separated these two
parties, yet that distance did not keep
th«Qi from soon understanding each
other. Duane waited only to see this
new factor show signs qf sudden quick
action, and then, with a muttered
curse, he spurred his horse off the
road into the brush.
He chose the right side, because the
river lay nearer that way and put his
horse to his best efforts, straight
ahead. He had to pass those men.
When this was seqpilngly made Im
possible by a deep wash from which
he had to turn, Duane began to feel
oold and sick. Almost he lost his bear
ings, and finally would have ridden
toward his enemies had not good
fortune favored him in the matter of
an open burned-over stretch of
Here he saw both groups of pur
suers, one on each side and almost
within gunshot Their sharp yells, as
much as his cruel spurs, drove his
horse Into that pace which now meant
life or death for him. And never had
Duane bestrode a gamer, swifter, ,
stancher beast. He seemed about to
accomplish the impossible. In the
dragging sand he was far superior to
any horse In pursuit, and on this sandy
open stretch he gained enough to spare j
a little In the brush beyond. Heated >
now and thoroughly terrorized, be kept
the pace through thickets that almost I
tore Duane from his saddle. Some
thing weighty and grim eased off
Duane. He was going to get out in
front I The horse had speed, fire,
A race began then, a dusty, crashing
drive through gray mesqulte. 'Duane
could scarcely see, he was so blinded
by stinging branches across his eyes.
The hollow wind roared in his ears.
He lost his sense of the nearness of
his pursuers. But they mnst have
been Uose. Did they shoot at him? He
Imagined he heard shots. But that
might have been the cracking of dead
snags. His left arm bung limp, al
most useless; he handled the rein
with his right; and most of the time
he hung low over the pommel.
Suddenly he burst out of a line of
mesqulte Into the road. A long stretch
of lonely road! How fiercely, with
hot strange Joy, be wheeled bis horse
upon it I Then he was sweeping along,
sure now that he was out in front
His horse still had strength and speed,
but showed signs of breaking. Pre
sently Duane looked back. Pursuers
he could not count how many—were
loping along In his rear. He paid no
more attention to them, and with teeth
set he faced ahead, grimmer now in
his determination te foil them.
Sight of the village ahead surprised
Duane. He reached It sooner than he
expected. Then he made a discovery—
he had entered the zone of wire fences.
As he dared not turn back now, he
kept on, intending to ride through the
village. Looking backward, be saw
that his pursuers were half a mils
distant too far to alarm any villagers
in time to Intercept him in his flight
As be rode by the first bouses his
horse broke snd began to labor.
Duane did not believe be would last
long enough to go through the village.
Saddled horses in front of a store
gave Duane an Idea, not by any means
new, and ooe he bad carried out suc
cessfully before. As be pulled In his
heaving mount and leaped off, a couple
of ranchers came oat of the place, and
one of them stepped to s clean-limbed,
fiery bay. He was about to get Into
his saddle when be saw Duane, and
then he halted, a foot in the stirrup.
Duane strode forward, grasped the
bridle of this man's horse.
"Mine's done—bat not kUled," be
panted. "Trade with me."
"Wal, stranger, I'm shore always
ready to trade," drawled the man.
"But ain't yon a little swiftT"
Duane glanced back up the road.
His pursuers ware entering the village.
"I'm Duane—Bock Duane," he cried,
menacingly. "Will you trade? florryl"
The rancher, turned white, dropped
bis foot from the stirrup and fell back.
"I reckon I'll trade," be said.
Bounding up, Duane dug spars Into
the bay's flanks. The horse snorted
In fright plunged into a ran. He was
fresh, swift, half wild. Duane flashed
by the remaining bouses on the street
oat Into the open. But the road ended
at that village or else led oat from
some other quarter, for he bad ridden
straight Into the fields and"from them

Ills new horse had not hud time to
get warm before Duane reuched u high

soft slope, he put the bay to the dense

There was litis time to lose. Dis
mounting he dragged the stubborn
beast Into the thicket This was
harder and slower work than Duane
cared to risk. If he had not been rush
ed he might have had better success.
So he had to abandon the horse—a
circumstance that only such sore
straits could have driven him to.- Then
he went slipping swiftly through the
He had not got under cover any
too soon. For he heard his pursuers
piling over the bluff, loud-voiced, con
fident, brutal. They crashed Into the
"HI, Sid I Heah's your boss 1" called
one, evidently to the man Duane had
forced Into a trade.
"Say, If you locoed gents 'll hold up
a little I'll tell you somethln'," replied
a voice from the bluff.
"Come on, Sid! We've got him
corralled," said the first speaker.
"Wal, mebbe, an' If you hev It's lia

Absolute silence followed that state
ment. I'resently It was broken by a
rattling of loose gravel and then low

you." came to Duane's ears. "He's
corralled In the brake. I know thet
Then Duane, gilding silently and
swiftly through the willows, heurd no
more from his pursuers. He headed
straight for the river. Threading a
passage through a willow brake was
an old task for him. Many days and
nights had gone to the acquiring of a
skill that might have been envied by
The Itlo Grande and Its tributaries
for the most of their length In Texas
ran between wide, low, llat lands cov
ered by a dense growth of willow.
Cottonwood, mesqulte, prickly pear,
and other growths mingled with the
willow, and altogether they made a
matted, tangled copse, a thicket that
an Inexperienced mnn would have
considered Impenetrable. ,
The depths of this brake Duane had
penetrated was a silent dreamy,
strange place. In the middle of the
day the light was weird and dim.
Lifted Enough Water te Quench His
When a breeze fluttered the foliage,
then slender shafts and spears of sun
shine pierced the green mantle and
danced like gold on the ground.
Duane had always felt the strange
ness of this kind of place, and like
wise he had felt a protecting, harbor
ing something which always seemed to
him to he the sympatiiy of the brake
for a hunted creature. Any unwound
ed creature, strong snd resourceful,

the low, rustling green roof of this
Duane wsnted to - cross the river
if that was possible, snd, keeping In
the brake, work his way upstream till
be had reached country more hospit
able. He pushed on. Ills left arm
bad to be favored, as be could scarcely
move it Using his right to spread
the willows, he slipped sideways be
tween them and made fast time.
Finally after a toilsome penetration
of sttll denser brush he broke through
to the bank of the river.
Be faced a wide, shallow, muddy
stream with brakes on the opposite
bank extending like a green and yellow
wall. Duane perceived at a glance
the futility of his trying to cross at
this point Everywhere the sluggish
water laved ~qniclcsand bars. Before
leaving the bank he tied his bat upon
a pole and lifted enough water to
quench his thirst Then be worked
bis way.back to where thinner growth
made advancement easier, and kept on
upstream till the shadows were so
deep he could not see. Feeling around i
for a place big enough to stretch out
on, he lay down. For the time being
he was as safe there as he would have
been beyond In the Blm Bock. He was
tired, though not exhausted, nnd In
spite of the throbbing pain In his arm
he dropped at once Into sleep.
How long Dunne was traveling oat
of that region be never knew. But be
reached familiar country and found a
rancher who had before befriended
him. Here bis arm was attended to;
he had food and sleep; and-In a couple
of weeks he was himself again.
When the time came for Duane to
ride away on his endless trail his
friend reluctantly Imparted the In
formation that some thirty miles south,
near the village of Shirley, there was
posted at a certain cross-road a re
ward for Buck Duane dead or alive.
Duane had heard of such notices, but
he hud never seen one. Ills friend's
reluctance and refusal to state for
what particular deed this reward was
offered roused Duane's curiosity.
Abruptly he decided to ride over there
and find out who wanted hltn dead or
alive, and why.
Toward rffternoon, from the top of j
a long bill, Duane saw tho green fields
and treeß and sblnlng roofs of a town
he considered must be Shirley. Aud at
the bottom of tbe hill h« cume upon
an Intersecting road. There was a
placard nailed on the cross-road sign
post. Duane drew rein near It und
leaned close to read the faded print
"SI,OOO KB WARD FOR BUCK
DUANE DEAD *>R ALIVE." Peering
closer to read the finer, more faded
print, Duane learned that he was want
ed for the murdor of Mrs. Jeff Aiken
at her runch nenr Shirley. The month
September wns named, but the date
wns Illegible. The reward was offered
by the woman's husband, whose name
appeared with that of a sheriff's at
the bottom of the placard.
Duane read the thing twice. When
he straightened he was sick with the
horror of his fate, wild with passion
at those misguided fools who could
believe that he had harmed a woman.
A dark, passionate fury possessed
him. It shook him like u storm shnkes
the oak. When It passed, lenvlng him
cold, with clouded brow nnd piercing
eye, him mind was set. Spurring his
horse, he rode straight toward the
Shirley appeared to be a large, pre
tentious country town. A brntlch of
some railroad termlnnted there. The
mnln street was wide, bordered by j
trees and commodious houses, and 1
many of the stores were of brick. A
lnrge plaza shaded by giant cotton
wood occupied a central location.
Duane pulled his running horse and
halted him, plunging and snorting, be
fore a group of Idle men who lounged
on benches In the shade of a spread
ing Cottonwood. How mnny times hnd
Dunne seen Just thnt kind of lazy
shirt-sleeved Texas group! Not often,
however, had he seen such placid,
lolling, good-nalnred men change their
expression, their attitude so swiftly.
His advent apparently wns momentous.
They evidently took him for an un
usual vlaltor. 8o far as Duane could
tell, not one of them recognized him,
had a hint of his Identity.
He slid off his horse and threw the
"I'm Buck Duane," he snld. "I saw
that placard—out there on a sign-post.
It's a damn He! Somebody find this j
mnn Jeff Aiken. I want to see him."
His announcement was taken In ab- |
solute silence. Thut was the only t
effect he noted, for he avoided looking J
at these villagers. The reason was
simple enough; Duane felt himself |
overcome with emotion. There were
tears in 14s eyes. He sat down on a
bench, put his elbows on his knees
and his hands to his face. For once
be had absolutely no concern for his !
fate. This Ignominy was the last
Presently, however, he become
aware of some kind of commotion
among these villagers. He heard
whispering, low, hoarse voices, then
the shuffle of rapid feet moving away.
All at once a violent hand Jerked his
gun from Its holster. When Duane
rolfe a gaunt nan, livid of face, shak
ing like a leaf, confronted him wUh
his own gun.
"Hands up. thar, you Buck Duane I"
he roared, waving the gun.
That appeared to be tho cue for
pandemonium to break loose. Several
men lay hold of his arms and pinioned
them behind his back. Resistance was
useless even if Duane had had the
spirit One of them fetehed his
halter from his saddle, and wltb this
they bound him helpless.
People were running now from the
street the stores, tbe houses. Old
men, cowboys, clerks, boys, ranchers
came on the trot The crowd grew.
The Increasing elsmor began to at
tract women as well as men. A group
of girls ran up, then hung back In
fright and pity.
The presence of cowboys mode a
difference. They spilt up the crowd,
got to Duane, and lay bold of him
with rough, businesslike bands. One
of them lifted his fists snd roared at
the frenzied mob to fall bark, }o stop
the racket He beat them back Into a
circle; but It was some little time be
fore the hubbub quieted down so a
voice could be beard.
" shut up. will you-all?" he was
yelling. "Give us s chance to hear
somethln'. Easy now—soho. There
ain't nobody goto' to be hurt Thet'*
right; everybody quiet now. Let's see
what's come off."
This cowboy, evidently one of
authority, or at least one of strong
personsllty, turned to the gaunt man,
who still waved Duane's gun.
"Abe, put the gun down," he said.
"It might go off. Here, give It to me.
Now, what's wrong? Who's this roped
gent an' what's he done?"
Tbe gaunt fellow, who appeared now
about to collapse, lifted a shaking
hand, and pointed. a
Thef thar feller—he's Buck I

An angry murmur ran through the
"The rope 1 The rope! Throw it
over a branch I String him up!" cried
an excited villager.
"Abe, how do you know this fellow
is Buck Duane?" the cowboy asked,
"Why—he said so," replied the man
"What!" came the exclamation. In- j
"It's a tarnal fact," panted Abe,'
"How-n Hsll Did You Qet His Qun7"
waving his hnnd Importantly. He
•was an old man and appeared to be
carried away with the significance of
his deed. "He like to rid' his hoss
right over us-all. Then he Jumped off,
snys he was Buck Duane, an' he want
ed to see Jeff Aiken bnd."
This speech caused a second com
motion as noisy though not so enduring
as the first. When the cowboy, assist
ed by a couple of his mates, had re
stored order again, someone had
slipped the noose-end of Duane's rope
over his head.
"Up with him!" screeched a wild
The mob surged closer was shoved
back by the cowboys.
"Abe, If he's Buck Duane how'n hell
did you get hold of his gun?" bluntly
queried the cowboy.
"Why—he set down thar —an' he
kind of hid his face on his hand. An'
I grabbed his gun an' got the drop on
What tho cowboy thought of this
was expressed In a laugh. Ills mates
likewise grinned broadly. Then the
leader turned to Duane.
"Stranger, I reckon you'd better
speak up for yourself," he said.
That stilled the crowd as no com
mand had done. "I'm Buck Duane, ;
all right," said Duane, quietly. "It was
The big cowboy seemed to vibrate
wIW a shock. All the ruddy warmth
left his face; his Jaw began to bulge;
the corded veins In his neck stood out I
In knots. In an Instant be had a hard, I
stern, strange loos. He shot out a
powerful hand that fastened In the
front of Duune's blouse.
"Somethln' queer here. But If
you're Dunne you're sure In bad. Any
fool ought to know that Tou mean
"I'm Dunne; yes. But I won't stand
for the blame of things I never did.
That's why I'm here. I saw that pin
card out there offering the reward.
Until now I never wns within half a j
day's ride of this town. I'm blamed j
for what I never did, I rode In hen-, i
told who I v,;iv--u*Kel somebody to I
send for Jeff Alien."
"An', then yon set down an' let this
old guy throw your own gun on you?"
queried the cowboy In amazement.
"I guess that's It," replied Duane.
"Well, It's powerful strange, If you're
really Buck Duane what do you want
to see Aiken for?"
"I wanted to face him, to tell him I
never harmed his wife."
"Suppose we send for Aiken an' he
hears you an' doet.n't believe you;
"If he won't believe me—why. then
my ease's so bad—l'd be better off
A momentary silence was broken by
"If this Isn't a queer deal I Boys,
reckon we'd better send for Jeff."
"Somebody went fer him. Hell bo
comln' soon," replied a man.
Duane stpod a heed taller than that
circle of curious faces. He gazed out
above and beyond them. It was In this
way that he chanced to see a number
of women on the outskirts of the
crowd. Some were old, with hard
faces, like the men. Home were young
and comely, and most of these seemed
agitated by excitement or distress.
They cast fearful, pitying glances up
on Duane as he stood there with that
noose around his beck. Women were
more burnan than men, Duane thought.
He" met eyes that dilated, seemed
fascinated at his gaze, but were not
averted. It was the old women who
were voluble, loud In expression of
"Thar comes Jeff Aiken now," called
a man. loudly.
