Old Man Conlan was As Mckane had said half crazy with the loss of his cattle. They were not so Many Only a matter of some Twenty two head but they meant a lot him. He owned no patented land. He was merely a squatter in the lower fringes of the upper country around at the Western end of mystery Ridge where Rainbow Cliff stopped spectacularly. He lived with his wife in a disreputable old Cabin and worked beyond his years and strength in the White lire of an ambition a laudable ambition for he had a crippled son Back East in col lege. He ran cattle in the Hills and he knew every head of his Brand the last wobbly calf an easy matter since they were few. At the store in Cordova he told his woes the Countryside and he had an attentive audience for his Issue was theirs and in a trader Way. On a pleasant Day in late june the old Man reiterated his grievance pulling his Long Gray Beard and flailing his gaunt arms in eloquent gesture. Whoever they be that lifted my steers he said grimly id a their souls h-1 i d in their bodies too believe me men. If i snowed pm an could throw my gun on pm. Shur Iff Here might take me jail next minute an in go Selwood sitting at a table result oily playing cards pushed Back his hat and smiled. Nobody s going take you jail for killing a rustler Jake he said we d give you a Reward instead. I d give a lot have the Chance Why Don be hint Fer it then demanded Conlan testily of i was Shuriff yes said Selwood laying his cards Flat on the table for a moment and facing him what would you do if you were sheriff i d try anyway said the old Man. With a touch of scorn find a Trace of some than. I d not stay on my ranch an let the world go hang i d ride the Hills Tenny a slow paleness crept into Sel Wood b face giving it an Ashen Hue like a Candle. He Laid Down his Hantl definitely and looked round at the ten or twelve men lounging in the room. Among them were Bossick and on or two others who had suffered at the hands of the mysterious thieves of nameless. I know that Jake Here voices the feeling which has been growing against me for some time he said evenly and this is As Good a time As any speak about it Sou re our sheriff. Price an a do Good one spoke up Bossick loyally an i for one have nothing say against you. I know no one better what you re up against. I trailed my own stuff into that River with you an i know that they simply vanished. The done Ray own Durn dest unravel the mystery an i can see what More any Man d do sheriff or not Selwood smiled at him. Thanks. John he said. Ill not forget that. But i hate have my j friends think i m laying Down on Thi Job. I Haven said anything about what i be been doing preferring wait until i had something Shew but that time seems far off still. This j is the smoothest work i Ever saw. Haf i fling. It Don stand simple Rea Eon. We know beef cattle Don Fly and yet that seems the Only Way they could have got out of the country. They go and they leave no trial. I know for i be Ridden the mils. Jake notwithstanding in dragnet fashion ask my wife How Many nights i be \ slept at Home since the last raid. Take a look at my horse out there. He s hard As Iron and lean As a rail. And there s another at Home that looks just like him. If i Haven found Sny i thing it s not because i Haven t several men stirred and one spoke. I Don think Many of w blame Yon. Price he fluid but it does sail a Feller lose Stock an have stand and How do you think it rail me fall catch the lifters asked Selwood quietly. It s my Job my my he picked up his cards again and turned the table. But no matter what is paid or thought about he finished every Day of my further hold on office will be Given Over the same Hunt until i find what i m after or give up As a Hick Helsey the bearded Man who had sat on the store porch that Day of the fight Between Selwood and Mckane now dropped the Forward legs of his chair the floor and sat up doubling his knife and putting it away in a pocket. Sheriff he said sync Ken on you along with Bossick. I think you la Ketch yer gome in i think you re already on the right Mckane looked at him As if he could kill him and his Tongue itched flail both men the speaker and Selwood. For he knew that they meant the rame thing. There was one listener however who sold nothing and whose Sharp eyes scanned each face in the room with painstaking thoroughness. This was Sud Provone a rider from sky line who had come Down for the mall. The sky line men never stayed Long at Cordova except As they came now and again for a night at play. When the talk had changed from the All absorbing topic of the stolen cattle this worthy Rose took his sack and departed. Several pairs of eyes followed him. But no one spoke of him. There was something about the sky line riders which seemed preclude discussion in the open. Price Selwood had told the truth. There was not a night of the Long warming weeks of Spring which had not seen him a Shadow in the shadows Riding the slopes and Flats of nameless. Sometimes he sat for hours High on some shoulder of the Hills watching the bowl beneath with the Moonlight sifting Down in a Silver again when the nights were dark he Rode up under the very lip of i Rainbow Cliff and watched and listened his every sense As acute As a Panther s. There were times when he sat for half a night within hailing distance of Kate Cathrew s stronghold and once her dogs winding him hammered excitedly. This brought out a Stealthy listener whose Only betrayal was the different note in the dogs voices. But someone was there in the darkness of the veranda and Selwood out stayed him whoever he was out stayed the animals excitement their curiosity and left with the hint of coming Dawn drop Back Down the slants and sleep the Day away at Home. Night again saw him travelling and always his one obsession travelled with him the hard and fast presentiment that Kate Cathrew was the tangible element in the smoke screen of mystery which Rode the country. It was not Long after the talk at the store perhaps a week or such a matter when he got the first faint inkling of a clue. It was scarcely More yet it served Sharpen his wits a razor Edge. It was not Moonlight neither was it Clear dark of the Moon but that vague time in Between when a Pale sickle sailed the vault and shed its half Light make shadows ghostly and substance illusive. Selwood had Ridden nil the lower reaches of nameless that week had skirted the Western end of mystery and even trailed far into the deep hearts themselves in on Effort find something anything which might Tell him he was at least on the right track. He hardly knew was for which he searched perhaps an old Trail perhaps a secret branding fire. But he had found nothing. So he fell Back on his night Riding again and As always this led him instinctively into whoever they be that lifted my steers he said grimly "1 in their souls a Iii the Region of sky line ranch. He had crossed tiie River near the head of Nance Allison s tilled Hind and had sat a moment peering Down the length of the Brown stretch where the rows of Young Corn were springing bravely. It pleased the sheriff see this Promise of a fair crop for he knew the girl and had known her father for an honest straightforward Man the hard Effort of the family get along was known All the ranchers and earned its Meed of admiration in a land where work was regarded almost As a religion. Nameless could condone wrong but not shiftless Ness. And this girl was not shiftless. Instead her Sharp management and her heavy labor were matters of note. So the sheriff took special cognizance of the look of her big Field of Corn and nodded in pleased satisfaction. Then he moved on up into the Blue Brush that clothed the slants by the River and made for the Heights. Three hours later he was 1101111 Sld else in his Saddle beside the Well worn Trail which led up sky Lino. He was not too close being ensconced in n Little Thicket of Maple about fifty Yards Hack and above. He had spent Many an hour Here before. It afforded a Good View of the Trail and better still a splendid Chance hear. Twice in the last month he had heard and seen a Bunch of Kate s riders coming Home from Cordova where they Hud gone Gamble. But this fact had been unproductive of anything sinister. They had Ridden boldly As Behoved innocent men their horses Calm Lnu slowly with rattle of Spur and bit Chain the squeak and whine of saddles. Selwood had reached a hand his horse s nose preclude its neighing and Hud seen Theta pass on up and disappear. Next Day he had a ostentatiously made sure that these men had played at Mckane a in both instances. And now he waited again seemingly in a foolish quest. He knew it would seem so an observer. It seemed so him when he regarded it with reason. But reason was not actuating him. It was instinct Hunch. So sheriff Price Selwood whom Kate Cathrew quite frankly hated sat in the darkness and watched and listened bes tie her Trail a lost Little thread on the vast expanse of the wooded a Iolob. A Long hour passed filled with the sound Ful silence of the wilderness. He heard an owl Call and Call in Mournful quaver from far below another answer. He knew that some Hunting animal was abroad in the Manzanita his right for he caught a thud and Rustle the pitiful shrill scream of a Rubit. A night Bird gave out a Sweet Alert note from time time and an insect drummed in a Pine tree. And then he heard or thought he did another sound. It was so far off and faint that could not be sure and for a time he fancied he might have been mistaken. Then it came again the crack of hoofs on Stone and once More silence. He held his breath listening. Once again he heard that crack in of hoofs and this time he knew them for Cloven hoofs. A cattle brute wits coming up the Trail toward him. There was nothing in that fact cause undue excitement except one thing. Under Ordinary conditions that steel would be lying in some snug Glade chewing its cud. In no natural Case would it be coming up a Trail at a smart Pace with a horse behind it Selwood leaned Forward gripping his own mount s nose and strained his eyes in the illusive half Light. Presently he saw what he knew he would see a rider driving one Lone steer up the Trull sky line. It was too dark see anything else who the Man was or what manner of steer he drove or what horse be Rode. And though he wilted till the cooler Bentli of the night warned Bra of coming Day he saw nothing More. He spent the next Day at Cordova listening but though several cattlemen came in there was nothing said of a loss among them. I but the Day after old Man Conlan was in and fit for Durance. He threw his ragged Bat on Mckane s floor and jumped on it reviling the Law and All it stood for. Two Morel he bellowed with n break of tears in his old voice. By of this Ain the limit i i Only had sixteen left an the two Best out the lot come up mass in this Moraln Ain no Trail agin. They s tracks nil Over sure but the other Stock is on the slope an this time there just Ain Nothen Barman from up on nameless Una at the store and he and Mckane tried Calm the old Man Down though the cattleman s own blood was rolled. It is a do dirty shame he said indignantly have you told Selwood him grunted Conlan. "h-11" he s Here now said Mckane. Just getting Price Selwood entered in time hear the last of the old Man s tirade catch the Drift of what had happened and his eyes glowed for a second. He Laid a hand on Conlan s Arm. Juke he said hold in a Little hold h-1" sold the other shaking off the hand ill be ready for the county House in Bement in another three months i Don think so Jake said the sheriff quietly Tell me were theme two flyers branded course. Plain As Day. . On right hip Swiller Fork in left ear. One was Roan an Tother a Selwood turned without a word left the store mounted and Rode Awny. Jest like him said Conlan bitterly goes n Rodin off All secret like an Snappy s if he snowed some than or wanted us think he webby he does sold Barman. sheriff Selwood Rode straight up sky line ranch. It took him 0 Good three hours going fast and it was far after noon when he pulled rely at Kate Cathrew s Corral Gate and called for her. Si10 came frowning and inhospitable. What do you want of tue she asked eol Cly. Nothing said Selwood except Tell you i m going take n look around your look and he do i she flared. What do Yon think you la find Well he drawled smiling i might find n couple of steers branded with j. C. On the right for one fraction of a second the Black eyes burning soberly on his flickered lost their direct steadiness. Selwood laughed though he was Alert in every nerve and his right hand was on his thigh near the butt of his gun that Hung there. Cold j few i Little h reducing think i need escort Caldwell a asked sarcastically. Well and several other riders stood close their eyes on him. Lie thought of John Allison found dead at the foot of Rainbow Cliff All intents the victim of no client. What s the matter. Kate he asked pointedly. Suffering from nerves did think you had and he turned ride Over toward the Corral. Kate s flaming orbs sought the face of her Foreman. Go with him they telegraphed and Caldwell went. Selwood covered every foot of the Home place of sky line in a grim silence looking for anything tie looked into Corral and stable Brush pasture and branding pen but found no sign of the stolen steers. When at last he Rode Awny it was straight Down along the face of i Rainbow Cliff toward the West lie did not know Why he skirted the Roc face since it was hard going. The Earth it the foot of the great precipice was slanting and covered with the Loose Stone that was forever falling from the weathered Wall. It was rough on the horse s feet but he held him it and he was surprised find that Caldwell was still with him and Riding inside next the Cliff. Think i need escort Caldwell he asked sarcastically. Webby As much As we need Spyle on returned the other and Rode along. Three Miles further on the sheriff turned Down the Mountain and the Foreman reined up sitting in silence watch him out of sight. Wings is right said Selwood himself those steers must have them hut that woman s eyes were guilty or i m a at the same moment Caldwell was heaving a Long breath of Relief As he pulled his horse around and headed Home. This Here sheriff is Gettin a Little bit inquisitive he thought then grinned sardonically. But if he never gets any Wiser than he is now he won set anything on fire.
