"The shot come from behind me. I even heard the lead. I reckon the next silliness, I'm supposed to think she went off when you dropped her, and hit dead center by accident. Fine carbine, you had, with its own eyes and everything. I never hear sech--" He stopped. "Now whut's the matter?" A new queer light had come into George's face. "Avery/" he said. "Whut?" "It comes back to me now. As I fell down, somebody taken and grabbed the carhine up. Avery must of---" He checked abruptly. and looked even stranger. "Avery was knocked out," he said weakly, watching Melody. They looked at each other quite a while. Melody's face had reached a low of depression such as George ~ad never seen in it before. It made him look older; almost. George thought, as if he had sense. "Don't look like that," George said at last. "You otter be glad. You otter be proud of her. If it was me, I'd take it for the best good news I, ever see come to you yet. The only good news," he correctecL "I throw in," Melody said. "What?" "You caln't blame her. She knowed him long before she ever knowed me." It took a long time for that to aoak in upon George, so that he realized what Melody mbant. Even after all his long miles with Melody, he found it hard to believe this final thing. "I otter git up and whup yew." George's voice was low, but it shook. "I give yew up. Git out of my sight! I don't want to ever see yew no more. Melody, I mean it." "All right, George." Melody got together such of his few things as were still rattling around the ranch house He could not find at all some of the things he thought he remembered having had, such as one-half pair of spurs, and his horsehair tie rope. He finally found his other saddle blanket, though, roiled up under George Fury's head. "Please, George, kin I have that?" When George smoked and ignored him he lifted George's head by the hair, and took the blan- ket anyway, ,while George refused to notice Cherry 'was brushing her hair, Just as he had seen her do the night she had found him asleep in her bed. She glanced over her shoulder at him, and said, "Hi." And there was a considerabl~ silence while Melody stood awkwardly in the door and nothing happened. "I don't see why you need him, right away," she said at last. "I got to get a job. Most likely I got to travel some to get it--don't seem like Pm popular around here "Who? Me?" "You're hard like a rock drill, or would of told me." He reached down a bronc. You're so hard you don't for his soogans. even know you're hard." he never picked them up. He "Oh, well, shucks, now--" stopped in his tracks, shocked out of "How on earth did you manage motion by the impression that Her- to break with George?",ry Henshaw, ignorer of whistles, Melody shifted uncomfortably, had turned and whistled at him. deeply embarrassed. He would have Then, aa he stared at the dozing said he didn't know, except that pony, Cherry spoke behind him. George would be staying on there. "No wonder he doesn't come," she "Well," Melody said, "he--he--I said. guess I got to tell you something, Cherry . . . George remembers, now. He remembers who--who picked that carbine up, and shot it, when--when I was fighting Monte." Cherry winced as if a quirt had sung in her face, but steadied in- stantly. She considered for a long moment, with her eyes averted. "I did," she said at last. 'Yup, sure," Melody said. "We know that, now." Cherry talked swiftly, in a panic. "Can't he see--can't anybody see---I had to try to---I couldn't help--" "Cherry," he said slowly, "you ain't got any better triend than George." But you Just said you quarreled "She would of said something. She enlarging its law enforcement He jumped, and spun around. "Whut? Oh. It's you." "Yes," Cherry said. '~ hat whis- fie can't be any good. You don't even answer to it yourself." "Who? Me?" Melody was utter. ly befuddled, now. "Cherry, I swear it seems like he otter come. I thunk a fur piece, figuring up that whistle That there is the most come-hither whistle a man can think up, I do believe." "Is it?" Cherry looked him squarn in the eye, and whistled at him. The doggonedest thing of all hap- pened then. Harry Henshaw came up and stood nearby, looking self- conscious. [THE END] By MARY O'HARA Author of "My Friend Fiicka" If you have read "My Friend Flicka" you are due for a new thrill in "Thunderhead," a sequel to that stirring story of a boy and his horse. If you have not read "*'My Friend Flicka," you have missed something, but don't miss "Thunderhead." It's a grand story. Look for THUNDERHE.4D IN THIS NEWSPAPER BEGINNING groups. That is why the treasury is build. ing up its investigative forces. Our object is to recruit and train 5.000 men. This will be no Gestapo. It will be a taxpayers' law enforcement group protecting the government's interest in taxes, and at the same time pro- tecting the honest taxpayer against the black market operator, the rack- eteer and every other kind of tax evader. And it will be good bust. ness, too. We expect to collect ~.0 for every one spent. When taxes are evaded the honest taxpayer loses, since ev- cry dollar evaded Inerenses by thai much the burden borne by other taxpayers. In many cases, the honest taxpayer has cape. clsl reason to welcome the tax- evaston caml~Igu. A reputable furrier or Seweler, for instnee, could not continue in businen if a next-door eompotitor should be permitted to sell furs or Jew. elry without collecting excise taxes. Any business firm wh/eh chests the government by fall. ing to pay for the services whleh government pr~vldes is engaged in dishonest competition, Just as much as if It cheated the land. lord out of his rent or workers out of the/r pay. Taxes are high, but they must be collected fair- iy. And so long as any substan- thtl portion of the taxes due remahm uncollected, it operates to defer the rednction of tax rates. Much more than expedience di- rects this tax-evasion campaign Fundamental morality is involved. The man who evades taxes picks his neighbor's pocket And in these times, when we are asking so much from the men in uniform, any pock- et picking at their expense becomes unthinkable. As President Truman has said: "We are not fighting this war to make millionaires, and certainly we are not going to allow the black- market operators or any other rack- eteers to be in a favored class, when the men in thS armed forces, and our citizens generally, are sacrific- ing so heavily." My readers may say, "All right. Tax evasion is indefensible. How bad is it? What are you doing about it?" The answers to the two questions go together. The treasury is gath- ering, from many sources, informa- tion that will give the entire picture of tax evasion. That same informa- tion wilt serve as evidence to bring tax evaders to justice The treasury is enlarging its investigating forces, as I have noted, to handle a tremen. dous backlog of fraud cases, accu- mulated during recent years and the cases now piling in. $ ve motors/ / / HERE'S how to save a lot of long, costly repairs . . lengthen the life of your car, truck, tractor or station- ary engine.
