"Drckr listen! If you go
if you fetch some word of Thome to
comfort Mercedes, youwell, you will
have your reward. Dick, will go."
"Nono!" cried Gale, in violence,
struggling with himself. "Nell Bur
ton, I'll tell you this. To ha\e the
reward I want would mean pretty
near heaven for me. But not even
for that will I break my word to your
She seemed the incarnation of girl
ish scorn and willful passion.
"Gracias, senor/' she replied, mock
ingly. "Adios." Then she flashed out
of his sight.
Gale went to his room at once, dis
turbed and thrilling, and did not soon
recover from that encounter.
The following morning at the break
fast table Nell was not present. "She's
in one of her tantrums lately," said
Belding. "Wouldn't speak to me this
morning. Let her alone, mother.
She's spoiled enough, without running
after her. She's always hungry. She'll
be on hand presently, don't mistake
Notwithstanding Belding's convic
tion, which Gale shared, Nell did not
appear at all during the hour. Per
haps half an hour afterward, as Gale
was leaving his room, he saw the
Yaqui running up the path from the
fields. Gale wondered what was the
matter. Yaqui ran straight to Bel
ding, who was at work at his bench
under the wagon shed In less than
a moment Belding was bellowing for
his rangers Gale got to him first,
but Ladd and Lash were not far be
"Blanco Sol gone!" yelled Belding,
In a rage.
"Haiders!" exclaimed Jim Lash.
"Lord only knows. Yaqui says It.
"Send Yaqui to find the hoss' trail,
an' let's figger," said Ladd. "Shore
this 's no raider job."
In the swift search that ensued Gale
did not ha\e anything to say but his
mind was forming a conclusion. When
he found his old saddle and bridle
missing from the peg in the barn his
conclusion became positive convic
tion, and it made him, for the moment,
cold and sick and speechless.
"Hey, Dick, don't take it so much to
heart," said Belding. "We'll likely
"find Sol, and if we don't, there's other
"I'm not think'ng of Sol," replied
Ladd cast a sharp glance at Gale,
snapped his fingers, and said:
"Dn me if I ain't guessed It too!"
"What's wrong with you locoed
gents?" bluntly demanded Belding.
"Nell has started for Casita," burst
out Gale. "She has gone to fetch
Mercedes some word about Thome.
Oh, Belding, you needn't shake your
head. I know she's gone She tried
to persuade me to go, and was furious
when I wouldn't."
"I don't believe It," replied Beldlrg,
hoarsely. "Nell may have her temper.
She's a little devil at times, but she
always had good sense."
"Tom, you can gamble she's gone,"
"Aw, h1, nof Jim, what do you
think?" implored Belding.
"I reckon Sol's white head Is point
ed level and straight down Casita
trail. An' Nell can ride. We're losln'
That roused Belding to action.
"I say ou'r all wrong," he yelled,
starting for the corrals. "She's only
taking a little ride, same as she's done
often. But rustle now. Find out.
Dick, you ride cross the valley. Jim,
you hunt up and down the river. I'll
head up San Felipe way. And you,
Laddy, take Diablo and hit the Casita
trail. If she really has gone after
Thorne you can catch her in an hour
"Shore I'll go," replied Ladd. "But,
Beldln', if you're not plumb crazy
you're close to it. That big white
devil can't catch Sol. Not In an hour
or a day or a week!"
"Laddy, you mean to say Sol is a
faster horse than Diablo?" thundered
Belding, his face purple.
"Shore I mean to tell you just that
there," replied the ranger. "I'll ride
your Blnnco Dev II as he never was rid
before, 'cept once when a dn sight
better hossman than I am couldn't
make him outrun Sol."
Without more words the men sad
dled and were off. The interminable
time that followed contained for Gale
about as much suspense as he could
well bear. What astonished him and
helped him greatly to fight off actual
distress was the endurance of Nell's
Early on the morning of the second
day, Gale saw three white horses and
a nay come wearily stepping down the
road. He heard Blanco Sol's familiar
whistle, and he leaped up wild with

sudden joy received a violent check,
then resurged when he saw a limp
form in Jim Lash's arras. Ladd was
supporting a horseman who wore a

the house to tell the good news. It
was the ever-thoughtful Mrs. Belding
who prevented him from rushing to
Lash handed down a ragged, travel
stained, wan girl Into Belding's arms.
It was indeed a repentant Nell, but
there was spirit yet in the tired blue
eyes. Then she caught sight of Gale
and gave him a faint smile.
"HelloDick." "Nell!" Gale reached for her hand,
held it tightly, and found speech diffi
"You needn't worryabout your old
horse," she said, as Belding carried
her toward the door. "Oh, Dick!
Blanco Sol isglorious!"
Gale turned to greet his friend In
deed, it was but a haggard ghost of
the cavalryman. Thorne looked ill
or wounded. Gale's greeting was also
a question full of fear.
Thome's answer was a faint smile.
He seemed ready to drop from the
saddle. Gale helped Ladd hold Thorne
upon the horse until they reached the
house Belding came out again. His
welcome was checked as he saw the
condition of the cavalryman. Thorne
reeled into Dick's arms. But he was
able to stand and walk.
"I'm not hurt. Only weak
starved," he said. "Is Mercedes
Take me to her."
"She'll be well the minute she sees
him," averred Belding, as he and Gale
led the cavalryman to Mercedes'
room There they left him and Gale,
at least, felt his ears ringing with the
girl's broken cry of joy.
When Belding and Gale hurried
forth again the rangers were tending
the tired horses. Upon returning to
the house- Jim Lash calmly lit his
pipe, and Ladd declared that, hungry
as he was, he had to tell his story.

"THE FAST MAIL" AT THE
GRAND THEATRE TONIGHT
There can be no doubt about the
'ntertainonent value of "The Fast
Mail" the William Fox melodrama
which will be shown for the last time
tonight at the Grand theatre. It is
iction plus and contains enough
thrills to satisfy even the most crit
ical movie fan.
"The Fast Mail", which was pro
duced from Lincoln J. Carter's sen
sational railroad melodrama, is even
better than the original play which
ran for 22 seasons. All the thrills
that delighted the popular love for
exciting melodramas are shown on
the screen with the realism which
could not be attempted on the stage.
There is not a dull moment in the

and Cummings' naturalness gives it
its big appeal He returns from the

enough to send shivers up and down
the spine of the spectator. To see

In Germany "Walpurgls night"the
night preceding the first day of May
corresponds to Hallowe'en in this
country, and considering that All
Saints' day was originally kept on the
first of May, there would appear to be
but little doubt that Hallowe'en and
Walpurgls have a common origin,
which, doubtless, dates back to th
earliest belief in a personal and
powerful Evil one.
