Headed West 317 an excerpt from: bankruptcy I "SNUGGY" AND THE ROSE PONY "Hi, Rose! Up, lady! there is one other occasion making for the View by way of the some distance direction. Get a stream on, Rosie." The strawberry roan tossed her cropped mane and her dainty little hoofs clattered extra fast over the rocky course which led up from the far-reaching grazing lands of sundown Ranch to the summit of the rocky eminence that bounded the valley upon the east. To the west lay a superb, rolling simple, lined with buffalo grass and sage; and shedding down the arc of the sky used to be the atmosphere solar, ruddy-countenanced, whose virtually point rays performed complete upon the face of the bluff up which the horse climbed so nimbly. "On, Rosie, girl!" repeated the rider. "Don't permit him get to the View prior to us. i do not see why anyone would want to move there," she additional, 2 with a jealous pang, "for it was once father's favourite outlook. None of our boys, i'm convinced, might arise right here at this hour." Helen Morrell was once safe during this ultimate opinion. It used to be yet a quick month considering that Prince Morrell had long gone down less than the hoofs of the steers in an unlucky stampede that had expense the sundown Ranch a lot beside the lifetime of its common proprietor. The View—a flat desk of rock at the summit overlooking the valley—had develop into virtually sacred within the eyes of the punchers of sundown Ranch due to the fact Mr. Morrell's demise. For it used to be to that spot the ranchman had betaken himself—usually along with his daughter—on nearly each reasonable night, to miss the valley and count number the roaming herds which grazed less than his model. Helen, who was once 16 and of strong construct, may possibly see the closer herds now dotting the apparent. She had her father's glasses slung over her shoulder, and she or he had come to-night partially for the aim of spying out the strays alongside the watercourses or hiding within the far-off coulees.
