NAN MORGAN GETS A CHANCE TO BETRAY DE SPAIN
BUT LEARNS SOMETHING ABOUT HIM THAT MAKES
HER DISLOYAL TO HER OWN PEOPLE
The region around Sleepy Cat. a railroad division town In the
Bocky mountain mining country Is Infested with Mage robbers and
cattle rustlers known ns the Morgan cans who hang out In .Morgan
gap a fertile valley 20 miles from Sleepy Cat and near Colabasas
a point where horses arc changed on the Mage line from the Thief river
mines to the railroad. Jeffries ruperlntendent of the mountain divi-
sion sends Henry de Spain with John LeFevre and Bob Scott a as-
sistants to Calabaxas to break up the gang. Several encounters occur
soon afterward. De Spain becomes smitten with Nan Morgan nleca
of the gang leader but Is snubbed. In n memorable fight De Spain
cornered by four outlaws kills two and wounds two and Is hlmMf
badly hurt. He disappears. Ills friends hunt him In vain. A day or
two later De Spain awakes In a cave. He does not know his own
CHAPTER X Continued.
The violent exertion of reaching the
height had started the ruptured artery
anew and bis first work was crudely
to cleanse the wound and attempt to
rebandage It. He was hungry but for
this there was only one alleviation
sleep and carefully effacing all traces
of his presence on the ledge he
crawled Into his rock retreat and fell
again Into n heavy slumber.
It was this repose that proved his
undoing. He woke to consciousness so
weak bo could scarcely lift his head. It
was still day. A consuming thirst as-
sailed him but be lacked the strength
to crawl out of his cave and looking
toward his bandaged foot he was
shocked at the sight of how It hud bled
while ho slept.
Toward afternoon his restlessness in-
creased but he clung to his resolve to
Ho still. Ity evening ho was burning
with thirst and when morning came
after a feverish night with his head
on Arc and his mouth crusted dry he
concluded rightly that one or both of
his wounds had bocomo Infected.
Do Spain understood what It meant.
He looked regretfully nt the Injured
foot. Swollen out of shape and angry-
looking the mere appearance would
have told him had tho confirmation
been needed that his situation wns
becoming critical. This did not so
much disconcert him ns It surprised
him and spurred hltn mentally to tho
necessity of new measures. He lay n
long time thinking. Against the Infec-
tion ho could do little. Hut the one
aid at his hand wan abundance of cold
water to drink and batho his wound In
nnd to this he resolved now to drug
himself. To crawl across the space
that separated htm from the pool re-
quired all the strength ho could sum-
mon. The sun was already well up
and Its rays shot like spectrum arrows
through the spray of the dainty cat-
aract which spurted In a Jeweled sheet
over a rocky ledge twenty feet above
and poured noisily down from tho
broad pool along Jagged bowlders be-
low. Crawling choking with thirst slow-
ly forward he reached the water and
reclining on his sldo and one elbow In;
was about to lean down to drink when
ho suddenly felt with some kind of an
Instinctive shock thnt he was no long:
cr alone on the ledge. He had no In-
terest In analyzing the conviction; ho
did not even question It. Not a sound

ably be aimed at the back of his head.

Ills thoughts working In flashes of
lightning suggested every possible
trick of escape and as rapidly rejected
each. There waB nothing for It but
to ploy the port to take the blow with
no more than n quiver when It enrne.
He had oace seen a man shot In Just '
thot way. Uraced to such a determina-
tion De Spain bent slowly downward
nnd with eyes staring Into the wnter
for n reflection thot might afford a
glimpse of his enemy he begun to
drink. IZach mouthful of water was n
struggle. The sense of Imix-ndlng death
had robbed even the Hfe-glvlng drafts
of their tonic; each Instant carried lis
acute sensation of being the lost. At
length his nerves weakened by hunger
and exiwurc revolted under the
struln. Suppose It should be after nil
n fantasy of his fever thut pictured so
vividly nn enemy behind. With un ef
fort that cost more mental torture than
ho ever had known he drew back on
his elbow from tho pool steadied him-
self turned his head to face his execu-
tioner nnd .confronted Nun Morgan.
She stood beside the rock from
which the ledge was reached from be-
low and as If she had Just stepped up
Into sight. Her rifle was so held In
both hands thut It could be fired from
her hip nnd nt such close quarters
with deadly accuracy. As she stood
with startled eyes fixed on his hog-
gord face her slender neck nnd poised
head were very familiar to De Spain.
And her expression while It reflect-
ed her horrified ulorm did not conceal
her uuger uud uverslon nt the sight of
him. Uunwcro of the forbidding spec-

Ills shirt stained nnd tnttered for

he said hurshly.
"Hldlug to kill other men I" Nan's

wus almost explosive.

The grip of her hands on the rifle
might have relaxed somewhat but she
saw his deadly revolver In Its nccus-
tomed place and did not mean to sur-
render her command of hlra. Nor
would she tell him where he was. She
parried his questions. He could get no
Information of any sort out of her.
Yet he saw that something more than
his mere presence detained and jer-
plexed her. Her prompt condemna
tion of him rankled In his mind and
the strain of facing her suspicion wore
on him. "I won't askou anything
more" he raid at length. "You think
I've no right to live that's what you
' think isn't It? Why don't you shoot?" !
She only stared nt hlra. "WhyvMon't

J Nan Kumtnoned her resolution. "I
know you tried to kill my cousin she
sold hotly after he hnd taunted her '
once more. "And I am going to think
what to do before I tell you anything I
or do anything."
"You know I tried to kill your cou- J
pin I You know nothing of the kind.
Your cousin tried to kill me. He's n j
bully and a coward n man that doesn't
know what fair fighting means."
"You nre safe In abusing him when
he's not here."
'"Send him to mel" Ills voice shook
with nnger. 'Tell him I'm wounded;
tell him I've hnd nothing to eat since
I fought him before. And If he's still
afraid" I)c Spain drew nnd broke his
revolver almost like n flnsh. In that
incredibly quick Instant she realized
he might hove threatened her life be-
fore she could move n muscle "tell
your fine cousin I've got one cartridge
left Just one I" Ho saying he held In
one hand the loaded cartridge and In
tho other the empty revolver.
"You've asked me to go I'm going.
How much of what you tell me Is true
I don't know. Hut I can believe my
own eyes nnd I believe you are not In
condition to do much injur' even If
you came here with that Intention. You
will certulnly lose your life If you move
from your hiding place."
She stnrted nway. He leaned toward
her. "Stop" he said peremptorily
raising himself with a wrenching ef-
fort. Something In the stern eye held
her. Ills extended hand tainted toward
Iter ns arbitrarily us If Instead of lying
helpless at her feet he could command
her to his bidding. "I want to ask yuu
n question. I've told you the truth. I
have Just one cartridge. If you are
going to send your cousin and his men
here. It's only fulr I should know It
now Isn't Hi"
"My cousin Is wounded" she said
pausing. And then with Indecision:
"If you stny here quietly you are not
likely to be molested."
She stepped down from the ledge
ns noiselessly ns she had come. .Shaken
by the discovery she had so unexpect-
edly made Nan retreated almost pre-
elpltutely from the spof. And the
question of what to do worried her ns
much ns It worried Do Spain. The
whole range had been shnken by tho
Cnlabasas fight. Even tho men in
Morgan's gap supposed to be pnst
musters of the game played In the
closed room at Cnlabasas had been
stunned by tho Issue of tho few min-
utes with Jeffries' new man.
Nan who hud heard but one side of
tho story pictured the aggressor from
the talc of tho two who lived to tell
'0f tho horribly sharp action with him
- nut Nan's common sense whispered to
j her. whatever might be said about De
Spain's starting the fight that ono man
locked In a room with four enemies all
dangerous in an affray was not likely
to begin n fight unless forced to
none at least but a madman would do
Unhappy nnd Irresolute Nnn when
sho got home was glad of an excuse
to rido to Calutiasas for n packet of
dressing coming by stugo from Sleepy
Cat for Gale who lay wounded at Salt
Morgan's; and eating n hnsty lunch-
eon she ordered her horse and set out.
Should sho tell her Uncle Duke of
finding Do Spain? Whenever she .de-
cided that sbejnust something In the
recollection of De Spain's condition un-
settled her resolution. Tales enough
of his bloodthlrsttness Ids merciless
efficiency his ever-ready craft nnd con-
summate duplicity were familiar to
her. Yet only n few of these stories
appealed to Nan's Innnto convictions
of truth and Justice. Sho lived among
men who were for the most part not
truthful or dependable even In smitll
things how could they bo relied on to
tell tho truth about Do Spain's motives
nnd conduct? As to his deadly skill
with arms no stories were needed to
confirm this even though sho herself
had onco overcome lilm In a contest.
The evidence of his mastery had now
fatal pre-eminence among tne trage-
dies of the Spanish sinks. Where he !
lay be could. If be meditated revenge
on her people murder nny of them at-'
roon ut will. To spare his life Imper- j
lied to this extent theirs but surely
he lay not far from death by exhau- '
tlon. And If he was not helped soon
he would die.
llut who was to help him? Certainly j
none of his friends. If she told them i
they would try to reach hltn. Thnt
would mean an opjialllng an untblnk-
nble fight. All came back fo one ter-
I rifylng alternative: Should she help
! this wretched man herself! And If he
lived would he repay her by shooting
; someone of her own kin?
! The long ride to Calnbasas went fast

and wanted to start directly back
again. McAlpin refused absolutely to

professed to be shocked. He told her

mount and sent her pony In to be

Scotch way about Gale.

"that Henry went down there to pick a
fight with the boys. Hut" he asserted
cryptically "I happen to know thnt
"Then what did he go down there
fori" demanded Nan Indignantly but
McAlpin the situation now In hand
took Ids time to It. He leaned forward
In a manner calculated to Invite confi-
dence without giving offense. "Miss
Nan" said he simply "Henry de Spain
was here with me sitting right there
where you lire sitting In that chair
not fifteen minutes before that fight
began. I told you he never went down
there to fight. Do you want the proof?
I'll tell you I wouldn't wunt anybody
else to know will you keep Hi"
Nan seemed Indifferent. "Girls nre
not supposed to keep secrets" she said
Her narrator was not to be balked.
He pointed to the coot-rack on the
wnll In front of them both. "There Is
Henry de Spain's coat. He hung It
there Just before" he vent down to the
Inn. Under It If you look you'll find
his belt of cartridges. Don't take my
word look for yourself."
Giving this Information time to sink
in McAlpfn continued. Nan's eyes had
turned despite her indifference to the
cout; but she was thinking more In-
tently about tho belt which McAlpin
asserted hung under It. "You want to
know what he did go down to the hotel
for thnt afternoon? I happen to know-
that too" nverred McAlpin sitting
down but respectfully on the edge of

"Henry do Spain is dead" he sutd qui-

Nan rode home much more excited
more bewildered than when she had
ridden over. Strangest shock of all
that this man of all other men should
profess to care for her. She had
shown anger when McAlpin dared
speak of It; at least she thought she
had. And she still did not know how
sufficiently to resent the thought of
such undaclty on De Spain's part.
This was to sny the least a further
nwkward complication for her feelings.
She already had enough to contuse

left her packet for him and rode
home. Her Uncle Duke was In town.
She had the house to herself with
only Ilonlta the old Mexican serving
woman aud Nan ate her late supper
The longer she pindcred on De
Spain and his dilemn a and her own
the more she worried. When she
went to bed. upstairs In her little
j gable room she tossed on her pillow
j tilt a resolve seized her to go up again
to his hiding place and see what she
could see or hear possibly if one
were on foot she could uncover a plot.
She dressed resolutely buckled on
a holster to her side and slipping a
revolver u new one thnt Gale had
given her Into It for protection she
walked softly do wns tu Irs and out of
hdoors. The night air vns clear with
n three-quarter moon r.e.'l up In th
sky. She took her way rapidly along
the trail to the mountain keeping in
much ns possible within the great
shadows cast by the towering peaks.
Breathing stealthily and keyed to a
tense feeling of uncertainty and sus-
picion. Nan at length rcnthed without
adventure the corner of the ledgo
where she hud first seen De Spain
and there lying flat listened.
Hearing only the music of the little
enscade she swept the ledge as well
as she could with her eyes but It was
now so far In shndow as u lie In Im-
penetrable darkness. Hatdly daring
to breathe she crept and J'lt her way
over It with her hands discovering
nothing until she hud almost reached
De Spain's retreat nt the farther side.
Then her heart stopped In an ugony
of fear underneath the overhanging
wnll she heard voices. De Spain had
confederates then and had tricked
her after all.
Hut a moment Inter this explanation
fnlled to satisfy her. The mutterlngs
were too constant and too disconnect-
ed it dawned on Nan that this must
be delirium. She could hear De Spain
throwing himself from side to side
nnd the near and far sounds as If of
two voices were explained. She crept

there were unpleasant possibilities If

to pity or to help him she convinced
herself; but she did not wont his death
laid to a Morgan plot for none of his
friends would ever believe De Spain
hud found his way alive nnd alone
to where he lay.
All of this Nan was casting up In
her mind as sho walked home. She
had already decided but without
realizing It what to do and was will
