CHAPTER 11 - LEADS

" This is the Black Land," said Pasco. " Always it has been venerated, for it will cure many diseases. We have believed it magic. Your people have taught us that there is no magic, but it is true that this earth will cure disease."
Bill stared down at the strangely coloured earth. Jake was squatting, handling the stuff.
" So you reckoned we'd be interested ? " he asked. " Do we look like we need curin' of somethin' ?"
Pasco did not smile, but one could almost imagine that he did.
" I thought it might be of value to you," was the reply.
Bill stuck his hands in his gun-belt.
" That was mighty nice of you." And then, sharply, " Who else do you think knows about this besides the guy Charlie ?-if he does, which we don't know for sure."
Pasco shrugged copper-gleaming shoulders.
" I do not know-it was just a thought," he replied.
He was foxing. No, not exactly foxing, reflected Bill, but not talking quite straight. It was a habit of Indians, he knew. Their minds were made differently from the whites ; they never went straight to a target. Pasco was talking round something-but Bill didn't know what.
Then, before he could speak again, there came suddenly the sound of a shot, fired from a long distance. The noise reached the group in the defile only faintly. The crack was followed swiftly by another.
Bill moved quickly.
" Get out o' here," he grunted.
They went back under the rock barrier, came to the mesa outside and the towering cliff face. Now Pasco took the lead. The shots had come from the top
