Braced firmly on the footboard, poised carefullyand with just the right tension on the reins, thedriver scanned the trail before him, avoiding as besthe could the rocks and deep ruts, and watchingalertly for a stumble. His sombrero had desertedhim and his long brown hair snapped behind himin the wind. Bill was frightened, but not for himself73alone. With all his bravado he was built ofgood timber, and his one thought was for thewomen under his care. He unconsciously prayedthat they might not be brought face to face with therealization of what menaced them; that they wouldnot learn why the coach lurched so terribly; thatthe trunk which obstructed the back window of thecoach would not shift and give them a sight of thedanger.

Hestopped and gave her the letter, which he had brought all the way fromthe post-office at Muletown solely for excuse to see her. She poisedthe olla full of water upon her head and he walked up the hill tothe house by her side, and while he talked to her mother she slippedstealthily out and hid in the jacal beside the burro for a chance toread the letter. When she returned she showed so plainly that hiscompliments and sweet speeches were distasteful to her that he sulkily[Pg 304]left the house and galloped home again. Then her mother reproved her,telling her that she must not discourage the young man, because he wasplainly in earnest in his attentions and would make the best andrichest husband of all the young caballeros who came to the house,and that when next she saw him she must make amends for her unkindtreatment.
