CHAPTER 5 - FOOTHILL TRAIL

incidents Ned had so briefly recounted, as well as explaining his own share in recent events. But one move he could take, and he reckoned it was a good move.
So far nobody knew that Ned and Jake were rangers. Even supposing that in the moonlight the bandits had seen them clearly enough to be able to identify them later, they still wouldn't know they were rangers or associated with Bill himself. Bill knew that he hadn't been glimpsed. It was a good idea, then, for the two to remain unofficial interlopers. There might be dividends to come from such a proposition. As it happened the Bruce bunch, for some reason losing Bill, had not showed up, which made it possible for Jake and Ned to clear. They'd have to wait to hear his own tale.
" O.K. we'll work it this way," said Bill, reaching his decision. " I'll get the kid back to Indian Range, and I'll put up the yarn I got him away from the hoodlums. Reckon they'll think I'm pretty good," he added, " but don't let that worry you. You follow along but keep out of sight, be careful not to run into the Bruce mob or the sheriff's posse-he's up here somewhere."
He talked for a few more moments rapidly. Jake and Ned were to follow along until they were sure there was no danger of another attempt on the boy. Then they were to beat it and make for the junction of the Indian Range and the main Black Creek trail. They were to wait there, under cover, until Bill showed up. It might be a long time, but they were to wait until he came.
That was the way it was worked. Rocky was put across the saddle of Bill's pony, as comfortably as possible, and Bill walked the animal back down the narrow goat-track towards the mountain trail which

eventually led to Indian Range. Jake and Ned followed, one on either side of the track, covering Bill and the boy in case of more trouble. Not even Bill, who knew they were there, glimpsed them or heard them. They knew their stuff.
There was no further trouble. Half a mile after reaching the mountain trail and turning towards Indian Range, Bill met up with Bruce, Callahan and those who had earlier followed after him when the shots were heard. With them was the sheriff, Rod Canter. It seemed that he, though unwittingly, had been the cause of the bunch losing Bill. He had been riding on the other side of the mountain trail, searching for the boy, having split up his small posse
