"Dink had boon mostly a grouchy,
roving sort of cuss; but now he begun to
figure that that valley was good enough
for hint until Kingdom Come. Why, he'd
get out there with them sheen '""I SK'tu
"II v sing. The sheep hardly knew hint, he
was so changed. Ol ' Floss used to pome
oer from his camp about three times a
week and stuif himself full of corn
bread and hot cakes. They even got
some chickens, and had eggs and fries,
"flie was most too nice for that kind
of life. Von know what I mean. But
she didn't seem to think so, and she was
more to them two herders than sunshine
mid rain. Luck seemed to trail her, too.
There wasn't it single disease hit the
sheep in two years, and prices held so
steady that Dink bought a lot of stuff
for her in town that looked right funny
in that log shack.
I ESS had pretty little ways, and when
J she'd laugh, a man would carry tho
sound of it for a whole day. It wasn't
like a grown-up woman's laugh at all. It
sounded more like a child playing. They
used to see which could make her laugh
most, them two. And if ol' Dink ever
begun to look serious, she'd coax him anil
stroke his hair. ' '
The agent had his shade down over his
eyes and was cutting notches iu the arm
of the chair with a penknife. He
cwni'cd some impatience over the windi
ness of this tribute. The other was not
"Well, things moved along and Floss
kept a coming over three or four times
every week. Often the three of 'em
would joke about getting a wife for
Floss, and he'd say that she had to be a
twin to .less or back she'd go by the next
burro express. Then they'd all laugh.
"One evening. Dink came iu from fol
lowing some strays. Mighty tired he
was, and he said something about the
rain holding off.
" 'Oh,' she broke out, 'why can't you
talk about something else! J never hear
a word but rain and grass and sick
"He just looked at her, for he was
knocked so cold he couldn't think. It
was the first time .less had eer got real
mad. Of course, they'd had a spat now
and again you know how it is witli
married folks; everybody has 'em but
they always blowed over uiek, and her
anil Dink were lovinger than ever. Hut
now, when Dink tried to smooth her
down, she got awful fretful and tore
loose and walked the (loor, just eyeing of
him. When lie kept on explaining, she
run inside her room and called to him
through the door, for heaven's sake, to
leave her be.
"After that, nothing ho did seemed to
satisfy .less. She would get mad at him,
no matter what he done. It seemed to
worry her just to have him round. Then
again, she would have fits of crying, and
if he didn't get up and sneak off, she
would go pretty near crazy.
"She took to finding fault, too, with
the way Dink dressed. Heaven kuows
there was reason enough a shcepherder
enn't put on a fresh-boiled shirt every
day to tramp around on top of a hill.
Hut, "before this, sho'd never noticed
what he wore. Why, when fiober first
set eyes on her up in Capitan, lie had on
a pair of overalls that were scandalous,
and even Floss hnd advised him to
change his shirt.
' ' ' Mr. Campbell, ho don 't go round
looking dirty all tho time,' Jess says to
" 'Mr. Campbell Do you mean ol'
Floss f '
" 'Who else could 1 mean?' she says.
It wns the first time she'd ever called
Floss 'Mr.' Oober figured she'd got it iu
for him, too.
"Dink, lie stood tho nagging and tho
coldness for quito a spell. Then ho took
to spending moro time with his tlocks,
and the more lie thought over it, the
worse ho felt. There's som,e men who
can carry this sort of troublo and come
I through all the better, but Dink, he
didn't have enough of the stern stuff in
him. For pretty soon he got into a way
of buying bottles of mescal from the na
tives who were cutting wood in them
Tlie agent appeared to be dozing over
the recital. In the pause, he yawned.

KSi" he said wearily. "Von were
1 saving as Dink
"He did and he didn't," was the
careful reply. "It did happen now and
again that Oober would go sniggering to
himself out there on a hill, along of tlie
sheep being so stupid. Hut mostly he
kept a good grip on himself. However,
it wasn't no use. Fory day they seemed
to get farther apart. They were just
like that!" the traveler made a cross
of two lingers "Once, when Floss was
over to see uhouUa shovel he needed to
patch a waterhole, Dink told him all
about it and asked what in thunder he'd
ought to do. Floss shook his head
that wasn't much in his line, because ol'
Floss had never been tiny hand with
women and pretty soon he got up and
dragged it back to camp.
"It came fall, and one day he threw
a pack-saddle on a burro and dumb up
the hills to Capitan. It was beautiful
weather sunshiny, not too hot; only
about eighty, which is easy for them alti
tudes and the clouds was trailing in
long wisps all aroifnd the middle of the
mountains. Iu one place they lifted and
bunched around a peak, and you could
see, miles off, a regular veil swaying be
tween them anil the ground. It was sure
one fine rain and Dink was some pleased,
because it was oer a stretch of country
where one of his flocks was grazing.
"Well, Oolier went along, thinking of
his sheep and of .less, and whacking the
burro good when he needed it. lie got to
the village at night, and had a drink or
two, and bought what he went for. Then
early next morning he ate his breakfast,
said 'No' to some fellers he knew, and
set out for home, driving the burro
"It was a bright, awful iirettv day.
October, it was, and the whole country
was sleek Dink hadn't ever felt better. '
The air was fine, ami he kept a singing. !
It was a song he'd learned back in Lou-

fid muddy road;

"My voice ain't much. That high '
note didn't sound very good to me, did
it to vou i nut you Know tnat ol song
the Hull Whacker, they call it. Dink
wits awful fond of that song.
"Somehow or other, aloft in them
mountains, with a breeze blowing, Dink
couldn't get it into his head that every
thing wouldn't come right. It would
just have to. .less would be like she used
to be, and they'd set outside in the dusk
again, close up on the bench, and figure
on the sort of house they'd have when
their ship came in and there was a flock
of little Dinks to make it lively. So he
walloped the burro and went down the
steep trail at most a run. Dink aimed to
sneak up to the shack and slip in on .less
and get her around the waist and show
her tho present lio'd brought, before she
could open up on him. You see, ol'
Oober reasoned that if ho could ever take
her by surprise, that way, they'd get back
to the point where they'd left off. Hut 1

"Dink stole in," all right. There
wasn't nobody to stop him. He went all
through tho shack, a-holding that pres
ent, very foolish, in his hand. It was a
red silk Mexienn shawl, which he had
paid seven dollars gold for it, and Dink
thought it would go wonderful well with
her hair. Twice ho called 'Jess,' al

there; then ho ran out and up to the
spring. It was as quiet there as in the
