They rodo slowly, Lady Kitty bouio
vhat ahead, probably because the
trail Is narrow and treacherous below
Lost Moon, possibly so that Allison
should not seo her fuco.
Half a nillo back they had ridden
sldo by side. Tbo trail bad been wider
then. Lady Kitty did not euro to re
member any other reason for tho
proximity, but tho flush on her cheeks
and the slightest possible tilt to her
chlu belled her powers of forgctfur
Ah for Allison, bo was shamelessly

even caught him whistling as tlioy
turned Into Red Mountain gulch, and
when sho had deliberately ridden
ahead he bad not tried to Join her.
I.ndy Kitty felt lrritatcU by tho im
pcnltenco expressed in his confident
nttitudu and also by the knowledge
that lio waa looking at her. It is not
pleasant to feel a person's steady gaza
behind one. If it had been any ono
elso she would certainly hnvo reported
his unpnrdonably rudo conduct to
Major Dick, but sho couldn't report
Allison. Tbo major would laugh at
her. More than that and Lady Kit
ty's flush deepened the major would
say the young cub bad moro grit than
ho gave him credit for, and when any
ono as charming and dcllciously lov
able oo Lady Kitty bad flirted with
and encouraged such a man as Bob
Allison sho must expect tho worst
or tho boa t, according to her point of
vlow. Tho major could bo very ag
gravating. And sho had not flirted with Alli
son; not at all. If they chose to call
common social civilities flirting In this
barbarous land of tho lariat and cow
pony oho was not to blamo. It had
been loneaomo at Lost Moon, or, rather,
by tho tinio the major's party had
reached tho ranch Lady Kitty had
seen so many lariats and cow ponies
that the novelty had begun to pall, and
Allison had loomed up as a welcomo
distraction she had almost said "at
traction" to hersnlf
Ho was good to look at, this tall,
lean, strong young westernor, with his
sunburn a cross tint betwoen tan and
brick dust and his straight, close lips
opening In quick, unexpected smiles
and showing white, square teeth ltko
She had seen him first when f) camo
to meet thom at the little lopsided
pine board depot at Omri. She1 had
stood on tho platform when the train
drew Inland over tho major's dovo col
ored sombrero sho had caught a
gllmpso of a silent, erect figure on a
black pony, his hat pulled down over
his eyes, his chin up, as ho leisurely
surveyed their party. Sho had liked
tho clear, cool glanco of his gray eyes.
Thero was something so serenely well
balanced and self snfllclcnt In their ex
pression when they root hers that Lady
Kitty had felt a pleasurable tlnglo of
expectancy, as though the charm of her
femininity had received a challenge.
Thero was no doubt but what she had
met It It had not seemed serious,
merely a part of tho trip. He had not
appeared worth considering, llko tbo
other men, who, as tho major neatly
put It, had appreciated their blessings
when Lady Kitty had smiled on thom.
She had felt that In a day or so sho
could nod goodby and leave him wth
tho same comfortable regret as lied
mountain Itself, with its gorgeous, sun
set tinted, sandstone peak. Sho bad
not taken the man himself Into consid
eration at all, and now, suddenly, with
out a word of warning, tho man bad
leaned from his saddlo and bad kissed
Sho tried to forgot to remember tho
awful moment, but Its few details
danced through her mind Insistently.
There had been a long silence after sho
had told 'him they were going away
from Lost Moon In tho morning. Tho
party was going through Arizona tho
major, Mrs. Major and tho major mi
nors, all girls, and hersolf. From Ari
zona they would go back to England.
And suddenly tho black pony bad
drawn'nearer to her own brown mus
tang, and Allison's arm bad swung
around hor, and ho had kissed hor. In
cidentally Lady Kitty was uncertain
that sho had not No, sho bad not, sho
told horiolf positively. She had only
permitted him to kiss her, but that
was quite enough. And that was not
all not qnlte all. Sho had said some
thing to him.
"I might havo expected that a person
like yon would do that sort of thing."
Sho had meant to crush and humil
iate him, and ho bad laughed and lot
her rido on ahead. Sho wondered un
easily whether or not there was any
reason for bis cheerfulness. Had sho
or had she not kissed him? In tho
suddenness of tho attack and tho curi
ous contentment she had folt at being
summarily roped and branded, so to
speak, by him she hod forgotten en
tirely Just how far she had revealed
that curious contentment
Allison's voice made her pull up
short Ho rode up besldo her. The
trail widened slightly and took a sud
den header into tho gulch.
"We can't get by here," bo said.
"There has 'been a washout We'll
have to go back and striko up tho
mountain to Fop Booty's. There's a
path from his place down to the trail
on tho other side."
Lady Kitty did not answer. Her
lips wore half parted, and sho looked
off at the distant foothills dreamily.
England semed more than half a
(Trorid away. So did the major and
tho others. A curious senso of dell
clous peril possessed her. It was th
first tune in her llfo that sho had not
felt sure of herself so far as a man
was concerned. Just now sho had a
wild, Joyous belief that If this west
crncr wcro to ask her to bo his 'wife
sho would say "Yes." Sho wondered
If he would.
If they wcro only not going tomor
row; if only thero wcro not homo and
her father and Rodney of course
Rodney. Sho almost laughed out loud
to think all at once how completely
he bad gono out of her life tho last
week. And they wcro to bd married in'
Easter week next spring. Foor did
Rodney I Sho looked at tho figure
ahead on tho black pony and sighed
hupplly. If only ho would talk to b6r.
They turned a bend In tho path and
faced a small mountain cabin. Some
chickens and pigeons wnndered
hnugtitily about and a girl wan shoo
ing them away from a straggling
fringe, of red geraniums that grow
around tho stoop. She came toward
tlichi smilingly. Lady Kitty thought
sho had never seen such honest trust
ing eyes befdro except in deer. She
looked up at Allison.
"Hello, Bob! Them chickens are
just terrible, No, dad's gone over to
tbo ranch. Thcro's a washout down in
the gulch. Ho wants somo of tho boys
to help him fix up tho trail. Want to
rest up a bit and wait?"
Allison said "No," he would ride" on
a little and see if tho path was safo
down Booty's sldo of tho mountain.
"This is Miss Booty, Lady Kitty,"
he added as h6 rodo away.
Dlrnplo Booty watched until tho
pines hid hitn.
"I'm always afraid of washouts,"
sho said confidentially. "What If you
and Bob had ridden plumb Into the
gulch. You would, too, only it wasn't
dark yet But Bob knows tho way.
He comes up here so often."
"I suppose he docs." Lady Kitty
looked thoughtfully down at the slim
figure In tho red calico dress,, at tho
pretty dimpled fnco that bad not yet
lost the roundness or dainty coloring
of childhood. "Ho Booms' tb bo a very
Interesting young man."
"Yes, Bob's nice." Dlmplo spoke
simply, with an air of peaceful owner
ship. "I guess wo'll got married soon
as Bob comes to tho point"
"Has he" Lady Kitty hesitated
delicately "has ho rtBkcd you?"
Dimple's eyes opened In surprise.
"Why, no, not point blank, but
tvo'vo been going together over a
year. I'm seventeen. Dad says that's
kind of young, but I think such a sight
of Bob ho'll let us get married."
Allison camo up tho path among tho

him wistfully. "Bo up tonight?"
"Maybe." Allison jlid not' $Lm
around. When tho' cabin was out' of

"You aro going up to tho canyon' to1
morrow, aren't you?" '
"As far as tho springs; then we go
over Into Arizona."
"I'm going too." Allison's tono was
quiet and decisive.
Lady Kitty smiled and reached for a
leaf off tho bough that brushed her
"Aro you, Indeed? As guide?"
A dull flush crept up under tbo sun
burn. Lady Kitty followed up her ad
vantage. "I am glad the major, secured you.
We aro really such a lot of innocents
astray In these parts that you will bo
"I am not acting as gufdo to Btray
lng innocents. I am going aftor you."
Lady Kitty's eyebrows lifted. Sho
did not meet his gaze, howovcr. Sho
knew her limitations.
"It is very kind of you, I'm euro, but
I don't believe I Would if I were ybu.
Wo sail for homo In November, and I

Ho stared at her in dawning knowl

"I ought to say tin sorry," bo said at
last "but I'm not li was your fault
too. You ought to carry danger sig
