two staring yellkw eyes that peered a
up over the horizon, seemed to pause by
a time in search of the two, then tm
leaped out directly toward them. ru
Of this they were altogether ignor
ant; and when a deep, droning sound ht
disturbed the desert silence, like the m
purring of some gigantic eat, both as. m
cribed it to the drumming of their w
laboring pulses. w
'The two lights were not a mile be
hind them when, silently, without a
sign to warn the girl, Alan released w
her, took a step apart and dropped t
as if shot. 0
Instantly she was kneeling by his w
side. But in the act of bending over o
him she drew back and remained for
several moments motionless, staring T
at those twin glaring eyes, sweeping l(
down upon them with all the speed
attainable by a six-cylinder touring car c
negotiating a trackless desert. p
When Judith did move it was not to A
comfort Alan. On the contrary, her
first act was to draw from her pocket a
a heavy, blunt-nosed revolver, break it q
at the breech and blow its barrel
clear of dust. Her hand went next b
to the holster on Alan's hip. From ja
this she extracted his Colt's .45, treat- i
ing it as she had the other. Then she t
crouched low above the man she loved, e
as if thinking perhaps to escape notice
from the occupants of the motorcar. ja
If that were her thought, it was bred t
of an idle hope. Alan had chosen to f
fall in the middle of a wide space so b
arid that not even sagebrush had ven- v
tured to take root there. When the t
glare of the headlights fell upon them -
It was inevitable that discovery should u
follow. The motor car stopped within b
twenty feet. Three men jumped -out
and ran toward the pair, leaving two ,
In the car-the chauffeur and one who f
occupied a corner of the rear seat: i
an aged man with the face of a damned t
soul, doomed for a little time to live t
upon this earth in the certain knowl
edge of his damnation. 1
As this happened, Judith Trine c
leaped to her feet and stood over the I
body of Alan, a revolver poised in t
either hand. i
"Halt!" she ordered Imperatively.
"Hands up!" 1
The three who had alighted obeyed I
without a moment's hesitation; her i
father's creatures, they knew the a
daughter's temper far too well to
dream of opposing her will.
In the six hands that were sil- t
houetted against the headlights' radi- I
ance, three revolvers glimmered; but
at her command all three dropped
harmlessly to the earth. -
Then, sharply, "Stand back two 1
paces!" she required.
They humored her unanimously.
Darting forward, she picked up and I
pocketed the three weapons, then with
one of her own singled out the men
"Now, Marrophat-and you, Hicks
pick Mr. Law up and carry him into
the car. And treat him gently, mind!
If one of you lifts a finger to harm

Still none ventured to dispute her.
The two nien designated, without a
sign of disinclination, stepped forward.
One lifted Alan Law by the shoulders;
the other took the legs. Between them

the motor car.

itself. The man in the rear seat lifted
