An Indian up here watching-an old man, as Bill judged after a few moments. Here was no youngster but an ancient, getting on maybe for eighty, though it was difficult to guess accurately at that distance. Come to that, a white man could be out by twenty years when it came to estimating an Indian's age even at close quarters. But at all events this man was no youngster.
Almost certainly he had watched the ranger from the top of the cliff. Now he was engaged in watching something-or somebody-again. Bill was mighty interested. If there were a mesa suitable for grazing cattle beyond the outcrop that could account for the Indian's presence. Cattle could not be brought to the mesa through the narrow cleft but there might well be another, wider entrance farther east, on its other side.
Cattle rustling had not by any means been eliminated by Governor Deakin, although it had been greatly reduced. Indians were sometimes used by rustlers, though almost always they were members of the degraded tribes. The pure-blooded Indian of an aristocratic tribe was not often to be bought.

Bill waited for some five minutes, the Indian remaining motionless on the outcrop. Then the ranger began to move. He wanted to make a detour and if possible have a sight of what was beyond the outcrop, without giving away his own presence. It was not likely to be an easy job, for though the Indian was old his hearing was probably
