Then the rails crept westward and Wichita had its day of glory and Ellsworth .and Dodge City, i And then it was Sage City. ! When Wes Tancred stepped off .the Kansas & Western train at Sage City he looked to the north of the tracks and saw homes and shaded trees, a town that looked like so many of the newer Midwestern villages. Then he turned and looked down South Street and saw saloons and gambling halls, a score of stores and shops, a street churning with horses and wagons and humanity. Trail town. He stepped off the depot platform and started down the street. A cowboy came charging up the middle of the street on a cow pony, whooping and shooting at the sky and nobody on the wooden sidewalks paid any attention to him. Tancred ' went into the hotel and a youth about 19 shoved a register toward him. Tancred wrote the name John Bailey in the book, hesitated, then added, St. Louis, Mo. The youthful clerk studied the in- iscription. -Two dollars. M you're going to stay a whole week it's ten. "I'll take it by the day," Tancred said. He took out two dollars and dropped them on the :opyright 1954 by Frank Gruber. Distributed by NEA Service, li*. The clerk studied a key rack] and took down a key. "No. 5. That's right in front." Tancred picked up his carpetbag and valise and climbed the stairs to the second floor. He found that Koom No. 5 was the last door on the right. Tancred took off his coat, poured water irto the washbowl- and washed his face and hands. Then he opened his valise and took out a clean shirt. His hand •ouched a bundle at the bottom of the bag. He hesitated, then unrolled the bundle and exposed a well-oiled revolver. Finally, he re-wrapped the gun and put it oack into the bottom of the carpetbag. He put on his coat and descended to the lobby. • * * A SLEEPY-EYED man of about 40 had taken over the desk. He was studying the ledger and did not seem very happy about it. "You're Mr. Bailey, the new guest?" he asked as Tancred came up. "That's right." Tm the proprietor, Joe Handy. The boy gave you No. 5. I was saving that lor Hong Kong Smith, He's checking in tomorrow." He looked inquiringly at Tancred. "Expect to stay here long?" Tancrcd shook his head. "Can you tell me where I can find the Sage City Star?" •Luke Miller's newspaper?' The hotel man frowned. "You uh, going to work for Luke?" "He advertised lor a man and —I'm looking for * job." Tancred looked ihrewdly at Handy •Anything wrong about that?" "N-no. Only, well, Luke's got some of the people down on him Not rne, though," Handy added hastily. "It's just, well, Luke's kinda outspoken. By Fronk Gruber "It don't make them popular.* The hotel man drummed bis fin- jers on the desk. "Luke's place s right around the corner." Tancred nodded and left the hotel. Outside he walked to the cross street and turned right. Then he saw the sign: "Sage City Star, Luke Miller, Editor and Publisher. Job Printing." Inside was a desk, heaped with newspapers and papers, and in the rear, a large flatbed press, two job presses and several type- cases. An elderly man was set- ing up type and Luke Miller was fussing and fuming over the press, his face dabbed with ink, IJLS hands black. 'Be with you in a minute," he called. ^TANCRED walked back to him. Miller complained, "This newfangled machinery they been making since the war just don't stand up. rt He picked up a ben- zine-soaked rag and wiped nil hands. "What can I do for you?" "You had an *d in the trade paper," Tancred said. Miller's eyes lit up. He thrust out his blackened hand and grabbed T a n c r e d's. "Never thought a man'd come out here to this jumping-off place!" "You're here." "That's because I haven't fot any sense. How much pay do yoa want?" "I'll leave that to you." Miller winced. "Don't do that I'll take advantage of you." He strode pait Tancred to the littered desk and scooped up a copy of the Star. "Here's last week's sheet. Thirty dollars' worth <* advertising in it" "That doesn't seem Hke much.* "It isn't." Miller paused. There was a loud yell from the i street. 1 FOR RADIO AND TV REPAIR Call 3-4596 Jimmy Gean, repairman • AH work guaranteed • Prompt Service ROSE SALES CO. 521 S. 2Ist WE BUY USED FURNITURE PHONE 3-3122 Wade Furn.
