Lucinda came totouch his shoulder with sympathy. Logan alone knew what havoc Mooneys killing had wrought in him.
George, you and Grant hide in the cow-shed.
And have I had a hell of atime getting here?
A few of them have cars, andsome of them have trucks. Still, cattle runningup the canyon would never find that small, steep opening. Logan had patriotism, too; Lucindaused to think it the only religion he had.
He waved to me from the rim above Turkey Wash.
That would be right, spoke up Abe, stoutly. Youve been a pioneer for twenty-five years.
Abe swears they keep a lookout on one of the high points or along therim. What brazenboldness these cattle-thieves showed!
Thats not conceivable, interrupted Huett.
Some of theseother ranchers are getting the jump on us.
Never savvied what held those airplanesup.
It resembled Sycamore somewhat, but waslarger and revealed more gaps to fence.
Four orfive of those thieves bolted for the road. On the moment he saw adark moving line come from behind the jutting corner of wall. Some day, sure,shell take the one of us she loves best.
And now he sneaks up here withthose outcast Stillmans to rob us! We dont obey thelaws any more than the Stillmans or the other backwoods people.
It might have been just like that, Dad, retorted Abe, cool and hard.
The open door and window let in the grey gloom.
Thats when I got stung, from the other direction. Barbara returned rosy and fresh, handsomer than ever,raving about airplanes and motion-pictures. He almost stepped outsidein his eagerness.
Barbara ran out of the cabin, working the lever of her rifle.
Some of theseother ranchers are getting the jump on us. A dance at Holberts, failed to tempt him, though Barbara went withGrant. Occasionally one ofthe Huetts ran into travellers to hear more news.
Lucindas heart welled painfully in her breast. Then Logan heard another faint noise whichhe could not identify.
If they tried tomake a clean sweep, and tackled the U.
Youll get that chance yourself, maybe, he replied.
Tobe had to give itaway that he was Hillbrands man. At first it had hardlytouched them, remote in their canyon.
He peered up the trail, through the gap in the ledge. Dammit, Id lose every head of stock in Turkey Canyonrather than show yellow. Dad, youre cussed short-sighted and bull-headed, averred Georgerepeatedly.
