CHAPTER 9 - ROCKY TAKES A HAND

boy obeyed the schoolmaster that now he did so instinctively. He covered up the wire coils and then followed the Doc down the outcrop. When they were under cover an explanation was made.
" Bud didn't see you ?" asked the Doc. " You're sure of that ? "
Rocky was dead sure. Sure, too, that apart from the Doc nobody had seen him later investigating the boulder.
" Then we leave the wire and contact the sheriff," said the other. " Don't you see, son, here's a chance to pull a fast one. It looks like the guys we're after aim to rustle cattle up here, changing the brands with that wire. Don't you reckon it's an idea to let 'em carry on ? If they find the cache empty they'll know they mustn't risk it-we want 'em to risk it. Your old man can bring his hands up here, plus a sheriff's posse, lie up and when the rustlers are operatin', pounce. That should put an end to the trouble."
Rocky grasped the point at once, could have kicked himself for not being smart enough to work it out for himself. It was the obvious move. Maybe the enemy planned to rustle cattle tonight, maybe not for a day or so, but watch could be kept on the mesa from tonight on. Most likely the coup was planned for the immediate future, for the rustlers couldn't know that the beeves wouldn't be transferred to some other grazing-ground pretty soon.
Then another thought occurred to the boy-two other thoughts. By this time Tuck Werner might realise that he was suspected. Rod had given orders that nobody in the know was to say a word about Rocky's adventures near the Indian holding, but those orders might not have been obeyed. Tuck Werner might by now have received warning that
