INTO THE SIERRAS.Say Nat, I thought that this was to be a pleasure trip?Joe Hartley, the perspiration beading his round, good-natured countenance, pushed back his sombrero and looked up whimsically from the punctured tire over which he was laboring.Well, isnt half the pleasure of running an auto finding out how many things you dont know about it?

laughingly rejoined Nat Trevor, the eldest and most experienced of the young Motor Rangers, as they had come to be called.V-v-v-variety is the s-s-spice—— sputtered our old friend William, otherwise Ding-dong Bell.Oh, whistle it, Ding-dong, interjected Joe impatiently.Phwit! musically chirruped the stuttering lad.

Variety is the spice of life, he concluded, his hesitating manner of speech leaving him, as usual, following the puckering of his lips and the resultant music.Thats no reason why we should be peppered with troubles, grumbled Joe, giving the jack a vicious twist and raising the rear axle still higher.

Here it is, only three days since we left Santa Barbara and Im certain that Ive fixed at least four punctures already.Well, youll be a model of punctuality when—— grinned Nat aggravatingly, but Joe had sprung from his crouching posture and made for him threateningly.Nat Trevor, if you dare to pun, Ill—Ill—bust your spark plug.Meaning my head, I suppose, taunted Nat from a safe distance, namely, a rock at the side of the dusty road.

Lay on, Macduff.Oh, Ive more important things to go, concluded Joe, with as much dignity as he could muster, turning once more to his tools.While he is struggling with the puncture let us look about a little and see where the Motor Rangers, whom we left in Lower California, are now located. As readers of The Motor Rangers Lost Mine know, the three bright lads with a companion, oddly named Sandrock Smith, had visited the sun-smitten peninsula to investigate some mysterious thefts of lumber from a dye-wood property belonging to Mr.

Pomery, The Lumber King, Nats employer. While in that country, which they only reached after a series of exciting and sometimes dangerous incidents, they stumbled across a gold mine in which Nats father had, years before, been heavily interested.Readers of that volume will also recall that Hale Bradford, the Eastern millionaire, and his unscrupulous associates had made a lot of trouble for Nat and his companions after the discovery.

The exciting escape of Nat in a motor boat across the waters of the Gulf of California will also be called to mind, as well as the story of how matters were finally adjusted and Nat became, if not a millionaire, at least a very well-to-do young man. The gift of the auto in which they were now touring was likewise explained. The splendid vehicle, with its numerous contrivances for comfortable touring, had been the present of Mr.

Pomery to the lads, as a token of his esteem and gratitude for the conclusion to which they had brought the dishonest dealings of Diego Velasco, a Mexican employed by Mr. Pomery.CONTENTSInto the SierrasBetween Two FiresIn a Runaway AutoMotor Rangers to the RescueAn Appointment on the TrailSome Rascals Get a ScareA Photographer in TroubleLost in a Petrified ForestThe Midnight AlarmAlong the TrailTreed!
