he had been ripe, the event upon

With a couple of strides he turned
the cornier. Laddy aind Lash were
there talking to a man of burly form.
"H~ello, there's the young fellow,"
spoke up the burly man. "Mr. Gale.
i'm glad to meet you. My name's
Belding."
ils greeting was as warm as his
handelasp wvas long and hard. Gale
saw a heavy man of medium height.

ding, with twinkling eyes.
"Why, yes ; I met something white
and swift flying by," replied Dick.
"That was Nell Burton, my girl
Stepdaughter, I should say," said Bel
dling. "She's sure some whirlwind, as
Laddy calls her. Cone, let's go in
and meet the wife."
In Mrs. Belding, Gale found a wom
an of noble proportions and striking
appearance. Her hair was white. She
had a strong, serious, well-lined face
that bore haunting evidences of past
beauty. The gaze she gent upon him
was almost piercing in its intensity.
Her greeting, which seemed to Dick
rather slow in coming, was kind
though not cordial. Gale's first
thought, after lie had thanked these
good people for their hospitality, was
to inquire about Mercedes. Mrs. Bel
ding said the girl had suffered no
great hardship, other than mental, and
would very soon he rested and well.
"Now, Gale," said Belding, when his
wife had excused herself to get sup
per, "the boys, Jim and Laddy, told
me about you and the mix-up at Ca
sita. I'll be glad to take care of the
girl till it's safe for your soldier
friend to get her out of the country.
That won't be very soon, don't mis
take me. . . . I' don't want to seem
over-curious about you-Laddy has
interested me in you-and straight
out I'd like to know what you propose
to do now."
"I haven't any plans," replied Dick;
and, taking the moment as propitious,
lie decided to speak frankly concern
ing himself. "I just drifted down
here. My home is in Chicago. When
I left school some years ago-I'm
twenty-five now--I went to work for
my father. Iee's-he has business in
terests there. I tried all kinds of In
side jobs. I couldn't please my fa
ther. To tell you frankly, Mr. Bel
ding, I suppose I didn't much care."
"What (10 you want to do?"
"I want a man's job. I want to do
things with my hands. I want action.
I want to be outdoors."
Belding nodded his head as if lie
understood that, and he began to
speak again, cut something short, then
went on, hesitatingly:
"c;nle--you could' go home again
to the old man-it'd be all right?

Blelding's last remark was made as
he led lisa companions out of shady
gardeons into the open. Gale saw an
adobe shed and aI huge peni formed
by strangely twisted and contorted
blranchles or trulnks of mesquite, and,
heyondl thlese, wide, flat fields, greon
a dark, rich green-and dlotted wvith
beautIful horses. There were whlites
and1( blacks, and bays and girays. In
his admiration Gale searched his
memory to see if he could rememlber
the lIke of these magnificent anilmals,
and hlad to admit that the only ones
lie could tcompare with them were t-he
Arabian steeds..
"Shore I reckon I savvy why you
don't sleep nights," drawled Laddy..
"I see a Greaser out there--no; it's

Gale, can you ride?"
Dick modestly replied that he could,
according to the eastern idea of
horsemanship.
The ringing of a bell, which Bel..
ding said wis a call to supper, "turned'
the men back toward the house. '..It.
was not until they reached it and
were about to go in that Belding
chanced to discover Gale's crippled
hand.
"What an awful hand I" he ex
claimed. "Where the devil did you.
get that?"
"I stove in my knuckles on Rojas,"
replied Dick.
"You did that in one punch? , Say,
I'm glad it wasn't me you hit I Why
didn't you tell - me? That's a bad
hand. Those cuts are full of dirt
and sand. Inflammation's setting in.
It's got to be -dressed. Nell I" he
called.
Dick saw a glimpse of golden hair
and a white dress in the door. But
they were not visible longer than a
second.
"Dad, what's the matter?" asked
a voice that was still as sweet as
formerly, but now rather small and
constrained.
"Bring the antiseptics, cotton, ban
dages-and things out here. Hurry,
now."
Belding fetched a pail of water
and a basin from the kitchen. Ills
wife followed him out, and, upon see
ing Dick's hand, was All solicitude.
Then Dick heard light, quick foot
steps, but he did not look up.
"Nell, this is Mr. Gale-Dick Gale,
who came with the boys last night,"
said Belding. "lie's got an awful
hand. Got it punching that Greaser
lRojas. I want you to dress it. . . .
Gale, this is my stepdaughter, Nell
Burton, of whom I spoke. She's
some good when there's somebody
sick or hurt. Shove out your list, my
N7. and let her get at it. Supper's
neatly ready."
Dik felt that same strange, quick
ening heart throb, yet he had never
been cooler in his life. More than
anything else in the world he wanted
to look at Nell Burton; however, di
vining that the situation might be
embarrassing to her, he refrained
frot looking up. She began to hatle
his injured knuckles. Ile noted the
softness, the deftness of her touch,
and then it seemed her fingers were
not iuite as steady as they might
have been. Still, in a moment they
appeared to become surer in their
work. When she sat down beside him
and rested his Injured hand in her
lap as she cut bandages, she was so
thrillingly near that he yielded to an
irrerressible desire to look up. She
