toward her, but she had fled out into
Dusk was settling over stretches of
purple land, and already the room was
peopled by shadows. Work was over.
th*re were sounds of cheerful prepara
tions for supper; from the house came
faint chords of laughter.
It was the hush that precedes the
evening as it does the dawn; the hour
of reverie, in which all music is sweet,
and forgotten- faces arise to haunt.
Speed stood where the girl had left
him. miserable, hopeless, helpless. And
certainly his love was lost. He had
stayed on in the stubborn supersti-
tious belief that something would
surely happen to relieve him from his
predicament—fortune had never failed
him before—and instead, every day.
every incident, had served to involve
him deeper. Now she knew! It was
that no one could force a crippled man
"Hy Jove," he exclaimed, 'Til do it!"
He crossed quickly to the bunk-
house door and looked in. The room
was empty. The supper-bell pealed
out, and he heard the cow-men answer
it. Now was the appointed moment;
he might have no other. With cat-like
tread he slipped into the sleeping-
quarters, returning in a moment with
a revolver. He stared thankfully at
the weapon—better this than dishonor.
"Why didn't I think of it before?
It s perfectly simple. I'll accidentally
shoot myself—in the foot!"
Hut even as he gazed at the gun he
saw that the muzzle was as large as
a gopher-hole. A bullet of that size
would sink a ship, he meditated In a
panic, and as for his foot—what fright-
ful execution It would work! But—It
were better to lose a foot than a foot-
race, under present conditions, so he
began to unlace his shoe. Then real-
izing the value of circumstantial evi-
dence, he paused. No! His disability
must bear all the earmarks of an acci-
dent. Ho must guess the location of
his smallest and least important toe,
and trust the rest to his marksman-
ship. Visions of blood-poisoning be-
set him, and when he pressed the
muzzle against the point of his shoe
his hand shook with such a palsy that
he feared he might miss. He steeled
himself with the thought that other
men had snuffed out life Itself In this
manner, then Bat down upon the floor
and cocked the weapon a second time
He wondered If the shock might, by
any chance, uumb him Into uncon-
sciousness. If so, he might bleed to
death before assistance arrived. But
he had nothing to do with that The
only question was, which foot. He re-
garded them both tenderly. They
were nice feet, and had done him
many. favors. He loved every toe;
they were almost like Innocent chil-
dren. It was a dastardly deed to take
advantage of them thus, but—he ad-
vanced the revolver until It pressed
firmly against the outside of Ills left
foot, then closed his eyes, and called
upon his courage. There came a
great roaring In his ears.
How long he Bat thus waiting for
the explosion he did not know, but
he opened his eyes at length to And
the foot still Intact, and the muzzle
of the weapon pointing directly a<. his
instep. He altered his aim hurriedly,
when, without warning of any sort, a
man's figure appeared silhouetted
against the window.
The figure dropped noiselessly to
the floor Inside the room, and cried, in
a strange voice:
"Lock those doors! Quick!"
Finding that it was no hallucination.
Speed rose, calling out:
"Who are you?"
"Sh-h-hl" The stranger darted
across the room and bolted both
doors, while the other felt a chill of
apprehension at these sinister precau-
tions. h£ grasped his revolver firmly
while his heart thumped. The fellow's
appearance was anything but reassur-
ing: he was swarthy and sun-browned,
his clothes were ragged, his overalls
were patched; Instead of a coat, he

"Oh, ten-four," carelessly, "That'i

"Ten and four-fifths—seconds?"
"Certainly. Don't kid me! They'r«

"What!" Skinner stared at his op
"That's right. I'm a l.«on,"
