Without losing an instant the conrlct
set himself at the climb. Ills
laste, the swift glances shot behind
him, the appalling dread that made his
nerves ragged, delayed his speed by
dissipating the singleness of his energy.
His face and hands were torn
with catclnw, his knees bruised by a
slip against a sharp jut of quartz.
When he reached the top he was
panting and shaken. Before he had
moved a dozen steps a man caine out
of the brush scarce seventy-tlve yards
away and called to him to surrender.
He flung his rifle to place and fired
The man staggered und steadied
himself. A shell had Juramed and
Blackwcll could not throw It out. He
turned to run as the other tired. But
he wus too late. He stumbled, tripped
und went down full length.
The man that had shot him waited
for him to rise. The convict did not
move. Cautiously the wounded hunter
came forward, his eyes never lifting
from the Inert sprawling figure. Even

life and energy in every tense muscle.
Not till lie stood over him, till he saw
the carelessly flung limbs, the uncouth
twist to the neck, could he believe thnt
so slight n crook of the finger had sent
swift death ncross the plateau.
The wounded man felt suddenly
sick. Leaning against a rock, he steadled
himself till the nausea was past.
Voices called to him from the plain helow.
He answered and presently circled
down Into the gulch which led to
At the gulch mouth he came on a
little group of people. One glance
told hliu all he needed to know. Kate
CalUson was crying In the arms of
Curly Flandrau. Simultaneously a
man galloped up, flung himself from
his horse nnd took the young woman
from her lover.
"My little girl!" he cried In a voice
that rang with love.
Luck had found his ewe '.arah thnt
It was Curly who first saw the man
approaching from the gulch. "Hollo,
Cass! Did you get him?"
Fendrlck nodded wearily. "Yep.
He's up there." The sheepman's baud
swept toward the bluff.
"Got me In the shoulder. Nothing
serious, I Judge."
Culllson swung around. "Sure
about that, Cass?" It wns the first
time for years that he had called the
other by his first name except in
"Let's have a look at the shoulder." !

Those who knew about Sam's share
In the plauulng of the Tin Cup holddp
kept their mouths close. All of the
men Implicated In the robbery were
dead except Hutch. Culllson used his
Influence to get the mnn a light sentence,
for he knew that he was not a
criminal at heart. In return Dutch
went down the line without so much
as breathing Sam's name.
Luck saw to It that Curly got all
the credit of frustrating the outlaws In
their attempt on the Flyer and of capturing
them afterward. In the story
of the rescue of Kate he played up
Flondrau's part in the pursuit at the
expense of the other riders. For September
was at band and the young
mnn needed all the prestige he could
get. The district attorney had no
choice but to go on with the case of
the State versus Flandrnu on a charge
of rustling horses from the Hnr Double
M. Hut public sentiment was almost
a unit In favor of the defendant.
The evidence of the prosecution was
not so strong as It had been. All of
his accomplices were dead ami one of
the men implicated had given It out in
his Inst moments that the young mnn
was not a party to the crime. The
man who had owned the feed corral
had sold out and gone to Colorudo.

thnt the prisoner was the man

Jury could forgot. It counted for a
good deal that Alec Flandrau, IMlly
Mackenzie, and Luck Culllson were
known to he hacking him. hut It was
worth much more that his wife of a
week sat beside him in the courtroom.

In chapter 2:0-9 is given a synopsis
f the hook of Judges: '
1. The sin of the people (vv. 0-13).
2. Clod's Judgment for their sin (vv.
3. Repentance of the people (3:9).
4. God's deliverance at tlie hands of

A repetition of sin. oppression by the
Homy, repentance on tIn* part of the
ooplc, and find's deliverance. Is the
!ory of the hook of Judges.
I. The Judgeship of Deborah (4:
Iler name means "Roe," suggesting
nlerly Instincts. As suggested-by anther,
"Slie answered her nanie by her
idustry, sagacity, ami great use to
te public." The period was marked
y awful oppression. The Israelites
ere helpless, for the enemy had 900
harlots of Iron. Deborah was an
nlque character. Clod raised her up
>r such a time us this. Under a palm
*ee she held an open court for the
(hntnistrntlon of Justice.
II. Deborah Summons Barak (4:
Barak means "lightning." Deborah,

III. The Defeat of Jabln's Army (vv.
Slsera, the captain, gathered a
llghty army and went forth with full
ssuranee of victory, but he made a
ad mistake; he did not consider that
t was Ihe Lord's battle (v. 1R). At the
