Black Bart and the wlUi closed eyes, over the whiter face resting on her lap, her lips trembling with the one prayer, “Oh, God! Oh.

"Damn your talking, Keith,” he returned savagely. “Let’s have it over with,” and spurred his horse. The gun of the other came up. “Wait!” and Hawley paused, dragging at his rein. “One of us most likely is going to die here; perhaps both. But if either survives he’ll need a horse to get out of this alive. Dls-/ mount; I’ll do the same: step away ■o the horses are out of range, and then we'll fight it out—is that square ?” Without a word, his eyes gleaming with cunning hatred, the gajubler swung down from his saddle onto the eaud. his horse interposed between lilm and the other.

The plainsman struck his horse iwith the quirt in his left hand and •prang swiftly aside so as to clear the flank of the animal, his shooting arm flung out. There was a flash of flame 'cross Hawley’s Saddle, a sharp re-(lort, and Keith reeled backward, dropping to bis knees, one hand clutching at the sand. Again Hawley fired, liut the horse^ startled by the double jreport. leaped aside, and the ball '^ent .wild.

The riderless horses gazed at the two figures, and drifted away, slowly, fearfully. still held in mute subjection to their dead masters by dangling reins. The sun blazed down from directly overhead, the heat waves rising and falling, the dead, desolate desert stretching to the sky. An hour, two passed. The horses were now a hundred yards away, nose to nose; aJl else was changeless. Then into the far northern sky there rose a black speck, growing larger and larger; others came from the east and west, beating the air with widely outspread wings, great beaks stretched forward. Out from their nests of foulness the desert scavengers were coming for their spoil. der I’d like ter take a look aL wi reckon you better go 'long.

Blankets were swung between ponies, and the bodies of the dead and wounded deposited therein, firm bands on the bridles. Hope rode close bpside Keith, struggling to keep back the tears, as she watched him lying motionless, unconscious, scarcely breathing. So, under the early glow of the desert stars, they came to the water-hole, and halted. The wounded man opened his eyes, and looked about him unable to comprehend. At first all was dark, silent; then he saw the stars overhead, and a breath of air fanned the near-by fire, the ruddy glow of flame flashing across Ms face. He heard voices itly, and thus, little by little, con-lousness asserted Itself and memory back Into his bewildered toiwyrtoiegw CHAPTER XXXVIl. At the Water-Hole. Up from the far, dim southwest they rode slowly, silently, wearied still by the exertions of the past night, and burned by the fierce rays of the desert sun. No wind of sufficiy^t force had blown since Keith passed that way, and tlMy could easily follow the hoof prints of his' horse across the sand waste. Bristoe was ahead, hat brim drawn low, scanning the horizon line unceasingly. Somewhere out in the midst of that mystery was hidden tragedy, and he dreaded the knowledge o^its truth. Behind him Fair-baln and Hope rode together, their Ups long since grown silent, the man ever glancing uneasily aside at her, the girl drooping slightly in the saddle, with pale face and heavy eyes. Five prisoneia, lashed together,» the binding rope fastened to the pommelfi of the two “Bar X” men’s saddles, wore bunched together, and behind all came Neb, his black face glistening In the heat. Suddenly Bristoe drew rein, and rose to the full length in the stirrups. té to face with Bristoe. “What is it? Tell me, what is It?” “Nothin' but a loose boss, Miss.’^ “A horse! here on the desert?” looking about, her eyes dark with horror. “But how could that be? Could —could it be Captain Keith’s?” Bi'istoe cast an appealing glance at Fairbain, mopping his face vigorously, not knowing what to say, and the other attempted to turn the tide. “Not likely—not likely at all—no reason why it should be—probably Just a stray horse—you stay back here. Miss Hope—Ben and I will find out, and let you know.” “No, I’m going.” she cried, stifling a sob in her throat. “It would kill me to wait here.” She was off before either might raise hand or voice in protest, and they could only urge their horses in effort to overtake her, the three racing forward fetlock deep In sand. Mounted upon a swifter animal Fairbain forged ahead; he could see the two horses now plainly, their heads uplifted, their reins dangling. Without perceiving more he knew already what was waiting there on the sand, and swore fiercely, spurring bis horse mercilessly, forgetful of all else, even the girl, in his intense desire to reach and touch the bodies. He had begged to do this himself, to be privileged to seek this man Hawley, to kill hlm^— but now he was the physician, with no other thought except a hope to save. Before his horse had even stopped fie flung himself from the saddle, ran forward and dropped on bis knees beside Keith, bending his ear to the chest, graspins the wrist in his fingers. As the others approached, he glanced up, no conception now of aught save bb> t^wn professional work. “Water, Bristoe,' he exclaimed sharply- “Dash some brandy in it Quick now.

How had he come there? Was Hawley alive also? A face bent over him. the features faintly visible in the flash Of firelight. His dull eyes lit up In sudden recollection. “Doc! is that you?” “Sure, old man.” the pudgy fingers feeling his pulse, the gray eyes twinkling. “Narrow squeak you had—going to pull through all right, though— no sign of fever.” "Where am-I?” “At the water-hole; sling you In a blanket, and get you into Larned tomorrow.” There was a moment’s silence. Keith finding it hard to speak. “Hawley—?” he whispered at last. “Oh. don’t worry; you got him all right. Say,” his voice sobering, “maybe it was Just as well you took that job. If it had been me I would have been In bad.” The wounded man’s eyes questioned. “It’s a bad mix-üp, Keith. Waite never told us all of it. I reckon he didn’t want her to know, and she never shall, if I It I’ve been looking over some papers in his pocket ^he’d likely been after them thto <trip—and his name ain’t Hawley.

Ho was too interested in his scheme to even suspicion he h^ actually stumbled onto the read girl. I tMnk he Just found out” A hoyote howled somewhere in the darkness, a melancholy chorus Joining In the with long-drawn cadence. Last year when New York enacted the Bayne law and closed all her markets against the sale of native wild game, it was predicted that her example would be followed by oth^ states. After three months of tlie hardest fighting ever known over a game law, Massachusetts has stepped into the front rank beside New York by enacting a law paralleling the Bayne law. Governor Foss was besought to veto the bill, but he signed it on May 7. The new law stops absolutely the sale of all American wild game in Massachusetts, but it permits the sale of game reared in preserves and tagged according to law. This tagging system is working admirábly in Ne-w York, and besides giving the i state game producers a strong grip on the game situation, it is producing a révenue of many thousands of doL lars. During the present session of the Massachusetts legislature, the market gunners of Cape Cod and the gamn dealers perslstentiy fought every stage of every measure for the better protection of -wild life. Five times were bills Introduced for the repeal of the law against spring shooting, and each one was defeated. The advance, of the no-salo-of-game hill was bitterly contested, but the wild life protectionists rallied to the defense of the game as never before. The organized, sportsmen of Boston and Springfield, th© State Audubon society, the Boston Society of Natural History, the American Bison society and a strong contingent from Harvard university, formed an army of defense that proved effective. The campaign was strongly supported by the New York Zoological society and the Wild Life Protective association, two national organizations. Lawyers, business men and professional men left their offices and devoted weks of time to arousing the people to the dangers and duties of th© situation. The struggle in Massachusetts la Interesting because It demonstrates once more that the intelligent masses of the American people sincerely desire that wild life shall be preservecí from extermination, and that when once aroused the many áre more powerful than the destroyers. If the American people only choóse to arouse from the deadly apathy in which so many are now renoslne. and send the 'stft^m-roller over the ©xterminatofs of .wild life, we may even yet be able to transmit to posterity a fair representation of the birds and beasts and fishes that recently were so marvelously abundant in this country.
