you the truth, I wouldn't care much,
i'm pretty sick of fhls mess."
Lawson cursed In' amazement His
emotions were all out of proportion
to his Intelligence. He was not at
all quick-witted. Duane bad never
seen a vainer or more arrogant man.
"Longstreth, I don't like your talk,"
he said. - > a |
"If you don't like the way I talk you»
know what you can do," replied Long
streth, quickly. He stood up then,
cool and quiet, with flash of eyes and
set of lips that told Duane he was
"Well, after all, that's neither here
nor there," went on Lawson, uncon
sciously cowed by the other. "The

"Not by any means except her con
"You'll make her marry me?"
"No. No," replied Longstreth, his
voice still cold, low-pitched.
. "All right. Then I'll make her."
Evidently Longstreth understood
the man before him so well that he
wasted no more words. Duane knew
what Lawson never dreamed of, and
.that was that Longstreth had a gun
somewhere within reach and meant
to use It. Then heavy footsteps
sounded outside tramping upon the
porch. Duane believed those foot
steps saved Lawson's life.
"There they are," said Lawson, and
he opened the door.
Five masked men entered. They
all wore coats hiding any weapons.
A big man with burly shoulders
shook hands with Longstreth, and the
others stood back. ~
The atmosphere of the room had
changed. Lawson might have been a
nonentity for all he counted. Long
streth was another man —a stranger
to Duane. If he had entertained a
hope of freeing himself from this
band, of getting away to a safer
country, he abandoned It at the very
sight of these men. There was power
here, and he was bound.
The big man spoke In low, hoarse
whispers, and at this all the others
gathered around him close to the
table. There were evidently some
signs cf membership not plain to
Dimne. Then all the heads were
bent ovflfthe table. Low voices
spoke, queried, answered, argued.
By utratfuhg his ears Duane caught a
word lW$ and there. They were
planning, anil they were brief. Duane
gathered they were to have a rendez
vous at or near Ord.
Then the big man, who evidently
was the leader of the present con
vention, got up to depart. He went
as swiftly as he had come, and was
followed by his comrades. Longstreth
prepared for a quiet smoke. Lawson
seemed uncommunicative and .un
sociable. He smoked fiercely and
drank continually. All at once he
straightened up as If listening.
"What's that?" he called suddenly.
Dyane's strained ears were pervad
ed by^rflight rustling sound.
"Must be a rat," replied Longstreth.
The rustle became a rattle.
"Sounds like a rattlesnake to me,"
Longstreth got up from the table
and peered round the room.
Just at that moment Duane felt
an almost Inappreciable movement of
the adobe wall which supported him.
He could scarcely credit his senses.
But the rattle Inside Longstreth'a
room was mingling with little dull
thuds of falling dirt. The adobe wall,
merely dried mud, was crumbling.
Duane distinctly felt a tremor pass
through It. Then the blood gushed
back to bis heart.
"What In the hell P exclaimed
"I smell dust," said Lawson, sharp-'
That was a signal for Duane to
drop down from his perch, yet de
spite his care be made a noise.
"Did you hear a step?" queried
No one answered. But a heavy
piece of the adobe wall fell with a
thud. Duane heard U crack, felt it
"There's somebody between the
walls!" thundered Longstreth.
Then a section of the wall fell In
ward with a crash. Duane began to
squeeze his body through the narrow
passage tpward the patio.
"Hear him P yelled Lawson. "This
"No, he's going that way," yelled
The tramp of heavy boots lent
Duane the strength of desperation,
ne was not shirking a fight, but to
be cornered like a trapped coyote was
another matter. He almost tore bis
clothes off In that passage. The dust
nearly stifled him. When he burst In
to the patio It was not an Instant too
soon. But one deep gasp of breath
revived him and he was up, gun In
band, running for the outlet into the 1
court. Thumping footsteps turned him
back. Whllfe there was a chance to
get away be did not want to fight
He thought he heard someone run
ning Into the patio from the other end.
He stole along, and coming to a door,
without any Idea of where It might
lead, he softly pushed It open a little
way and slipped In.

A low cry greeted Dunne. The
room was light. He saw Kny Long
streth sitting on her bed In her dress

her to be silent he turned to close the
door. It was a heavy door without
bolt or bar, and when Duane had shut

Briefly Duane told her what had
happened before he entered her room,
not omitting a terse word as to the
character of the men he had watched.
"My God! So It's that? I knew

"Suppose they should? It's an even

Duane did not finish what he meant,

"Oh! You have seen so—so little

"All the same It's true. And that
makes me fe?l more the trouble my
coming caused you."
"You will not fight my father?"
"Not If I can help It. I'm trying
to get out of the way." .
"But yon spied upon him."

"And oh 11 am a rustler's daughter,"
she cried. "That's so much more ter

"How? Tell me."
"I overheard Floyd say that men
were coming to-night to arrange a
meeting for my father at a rendezvous
near Ord. Fnther did not want to go.
Floyd taunted him wlth«s name,"
"What name?" queried Duane.
"It was Cheseldlne."
"Cheseldlne! My God! Miss Long

"What difference does thnt make?"
- "Your father and Cheseldlne are one
and the same," whispered Duane,
"I gathered so much myself," she re
plied, miserably. "But Longstreth Is
father's real name."
Duane felt so stunned that he could
not speak at once. It was the girl's
part In this tragedy that weakened
htm. The Instant she betrayed the
secret Duane realized perfectly thnt
he loved her. The emotion was like
a great flood.
"Miss Longstreth, all this seems so

Dunne learned the points lie longed
to know; and how Indelibly they etch
ed themselves In his memory! Chesel

| walled valley. He always went there

getting ready to plan the biggest Job
yet. It was a bank-robbery; but

Then When Dunne had pumped the
now amenable outlaw of all details
pertaining to the present he gathered
diitn and facts and places covering a
period of ten years Fletcher had been
with Cheseldlne. And herewith was
unfolded n history so dark In Its
' j bloody regime, so Incredible In Its
brazen daring, so appalling In Its proof
of the outlaw's sweep and grasp of
the country from Pecos to Itlo Grande,
that Duane was stunned. Compared
to tUs Chcseldlne of the Big Bend,
to tMs rancher, stock-buyer, cattle
j speculator, property-holder, all the
outlaws Dunne had ever known sank
Into Insignificance. The power of the
limn stunned Duane; the strange
, fidelity given him stunned Duane; the
j Intricate Inside working of his great
system was equally stunning. But
when Duane recovered from that the
I old terrible [miu>lon to kill consumed
him, and It raged fiercely and It could
not be checked. If that red-handed

Knell had only been at Ord! But
I they were not. and Duane with help
of time got what he hoped was the
upper hand of himself.
