They found the mare patiently awaiting them, and Bill, after bestowing a few words of praise, which the animal understood and appreciated most perfectly, insisted upon Varleys getting into the saddle.

No one would have guessed that anything serious was in the wind, as the two men sauntered up to the bar of the Eldorado, and with a Mares all right! called for a drink. Nor had any one any inkling of the expedition even, when, at six oclock the next evening, Varley, stretching himself and yawning, got up from the table and sauntered into the open air, where, at a little distance, Bill and five other men were already in the saddle, with Varleys fast mare in their midst.
