‘s that to you?” he demanded roughly.
“Why–nothing–I was simply interested,” gasped Bob in astonishment.
The mountaineer’s eyes bored him through and through. Finally the man dropped his gaze.
“I’ll tell you,” said he at last, “‘caus nike air max sale e you and Jim are the only square ones I know. I’m going to Mexico. I never been there. I’m going by Vermilion Valley, and Mono Pass. If they ask you, you can tell ’em different. I want you to do something for me.”
“Gladly,” said Bob. “What is it?”
“Just hold my horse for me,” requested Pollock, dismounting. “He stands fine tied nike air max 1 to the ground, but there’s a few things he’s plumb afraid of, and I don’t want to take chances on his getting away. nike air max 95 He goes plumb off the grade for freight teams; he can’t stand the crack of their whips.

“Han Nike Air Max 1 g on to him,” he said, turning away.
George Pollock sauntered easily down the street. At Supervisor Plant’s front gate, he turned and passed within. Bob saw him walk rapidly up the front walk, and pound on Plant’s bedroom door.

As the first shot rang out, Bob turned and seized again the hair r nike air max 90 sale ope attached to Pollock’s horse. His habit of rapid decision and cool judgment showed him in a flash that he was too late to interfere, and revealed to him what he must do.

Considerably shaken, Bob stood still, considering what he must do. It was manifestly his duty to raise the alarm. If he did so, however, he would have to bear witness to what he knew; and this, for George Pollock’s sake, he desired to avoid. He was the only one who could know positively and directly and immediately how Plant had died. The sound of the shots had not aroused the village. If they had been hear cheap nike air max d, no one would have paid any attention to them; the discharge of firearms was too common an occurrence to attract special notice nike air max .
