He smiled a little, contentedly, and let his eyes slide across the faces of the others to see what ef- fect this announcement had taken. He got his answer at once. Cherry de Longpre looked Melody squarely and blankly between the eyes. Her tone was cool and per- fec~tly level, but there was a shaki- ness behind it. "Monte," she said with finality, "it's time to be on your way." "Oh, I ain't in any hurry," Mel- ody said. Avery de Longpre's words came in a slow whisper. "Oh, yes, you are! "" Until that moment Melody had not known that Avery's gun was in his hand under the edge of the table. Melody didn't believe .that Avery would actually shoot; at least not while everyone sat quiet. It was George Fury who scared Melody. George's hands gripped the edge of the table, and he had got his heels under him; he could uncoil like a spring from that position. And he was watching Avery like a pointer. Melody knew what George was go- ing to do. He was going to overturn the table on Avery, making the gun m/as' as it fired, George would hope. That would put out one of the lamps, and probably the old fool would try to kick down the other lantern, which hung from a rafter eight feet from the floor. There was a mo- ment of paralysis.

Beyond, an unexpectedly spacious cave was revealed under the hay tiers, made by blocking up the bales only one deep, like masonry. Avery had built this, and built it fast, while his father was off chasing wild horses. Fever Crick, whose jug- loose tongue was trusted by nobody, had taken Avery's story that he had hauled in more hay. This crude "It was a picture," Cherry con- firmed. "Naturally," Avery pointed out, his tone aggrieved, "everybody knew that you was the only one would have the nerve to hit Ira. Even Ira thunk it was you. He just picked hisself up and offered you a drink." Avery looked puzzled. "Offered him a drink," he decided. "I should have known Waggoner had no sense," Monte blamed him- self. "Why was he a stage driver if he had any sense?" "Sure, Monte," Avery said again. "It was Lee and Vh-g picked him," Monte said. "Waggoner was sup- posed to see that the shotgun rues. seater got left behind at Stinkwater. He was supposed to drive the stage alone. It's Waggoner's fault that the shotgun rider got his. It's Wag. goner's fault that I'm lying herel" "Sure, Monte." "And it's h/s fault now that the posse's on top of me again." "Sure, Monte." "Quit saying thatl" "Okay, Monte." "Don't you see," Cherry said, "that the posse will only take off after this tramp cowboy?" As they stooped and wormed their way out of the hide-out under the hay, Monte called Cherry hack. She turned reluctantly, anxious to be away. "There's something you might bet. tar know," Monte said, "and guide yourself according." "'Monte, it's t/me te be on yonr way." "Never mind this wrapping no- body around no finger," he said. "Unless you want to get them shot right in the stummick. Under- stand?" Cherry looked at him steadily, for quite a bit. She pinched her lids to- gether, but when she opened her eyes they were dry. "I don't know about you," she said at last. "Semi days, I don't think you try." Nobody was in the lighted kitchen of the Busted Nose as George and Melody returned to it, leaving their horses hidden in the brush.
