BUT DOESN'T TURN BACK
Mrs. Alalre Austin, handsome young mistress of Las Palmas
ranch, lost in the Texas desert, wanders into the little camp of David
Law, state ranger, lying in ambush for a Mexican murderer. She is
forced to stay 'J4 hours, until Law captures his man, kills qnother and
escorts her home. "Young E<1" Austin, drunken wastrel, berates bis
wife and makes insulting insinuations about the ranger. Austin is
secretly in league with Mexican rebels and horse thieves. Mrs. Austin
starts for her other ranch, I.a Feria, in Mexican territory, to secure
damages for cattle taken by Mexican soldiers, and encounters Gen.
Luis Longorio, who becomes instantly enamored of her beauty and
personality, much to her embarrassment.

"Perhaps, but you're the very man

Jones shook his head doubtfully.
"Don Rieardo has been working up ids

Guzman caught his enemy's name,

"Senor Lewis doesn't need to steal,

gave his orders.

Don Rieardo Guzman was an Ameri-
can, but he spoke no English. An ac-
cident of birth had made him a citizen
of the United States—his father hav-
ing owned a ranch which lay north
instead of south of the Rio Grande.
Inasmuch as the property had fallen
to Rieardo, his sons, too, were Yan-
kees in the eyes of the law. But in
nil other respects Don Rieardo and
his family differed not at all from the
many Guzmnns who lived across tin
border. The Guzman ranch comprised
u goodly number of acres, and, since
live stock multiply rapidly, its owner
had in some sort prospered. On the
bank of a resaea—a former bed of the
Rio Grande—stood the house, an adobe
structure, square, white and unprotect-
ed from the sun by shrub or tree. Be-
hind it were some brush corrals and
a few scattered mud jacals, in which
lived the help.
Rieardo had just risen from a siesta
tvhen his two visitors rode up, and he
made them welcome with the best he
had. In the cool of the afternoon Ri-
eardo rode with his visitors, and then,
cordial relations being now estab-
lished, he began to divulge information
of viilue to Law.
Yes, lie had endured nmny depreda-
tions from thieves. It was shameful,
but doubtless God willed that n certain

The Ranger rode into sight of the
branding lire with his repeater
across ids saddle horn and his thumb
upon the hammer; what followed
came with almost the blinding sud-
denness of a lightning crash. First
there was the picture of a sandy glade,
in the center of which burned a lire
with branding Irons in it, and a spot-
ted calf tied to a tree, but otherwise
no sign of life. Then, without warn-
ing, Bessie Belle threw up her head
in that characteristic trick id' hers, and
simultaneously Dave saw a figure rise
out of the grass at his left with a
rifle leveled. With the llrst jerk of
his horse's head Ills own gun hud
leaped to his shoulder—he was not
conscious of having willed it to do
so—and even as lie pressed the trig-

were ever alert; she tossed her head
and snorted when a deer broke cover

path; she showed a friendly interest
in the awkward calves which stood
and eyed her with such amazement
and then galloped stiffly off with tails
high arched. Law had many times un-

the body he heard the calf stirring, but
he let It struggle.
Bessie Belle's bright eyes were glaz-

On the second evening the Ranger ;
rode home through a drizzle that had
materialized after a long, threatening
afternoon and now promised to be-
come a real rain. Ilicardo met him
at the door to say:
"You bring good fortune with you,
senor, for the land is thirsty. To-mor-
row, if this rain holds, we shall ride
together—you, Pedro and I. Those
thieves do their stealing when they
leave no tracks."
The sky was leaden, the rain still
fell in the morning when Dave and
his two companions set out. Until

The prospect of again seeing the
ruddy-haired mistress of Las Palmus
stirred Law more deeply than he cared
to admit. Nevertheless, he was uncom-
