"That's what I'm fighting," said Luke Miller. "You mean there are people who approve of that?" "Jacob Fugger approves of it. He approves of anything the Texas men want to do." "I saw Fugger's name on a store." Tancred said. "There's a lot of stores you didn't see it on," Miller exclaimed. "Places he owns or has an interest in. Fugger's our local tycoon, in addition to being the mayor of Sage City. In other words, he runs the town. That's why I'm carrying $30 worth of advertising instead of S300. And it's also the reason I'm doing S20 worth of job printing a week. And that's why I can't pay you more than $20 a week." "I don't see how you can afford to pay even that much." "Well, there's some money comes in from subscriptions and sr.les of the paper. People like the Star, even if Fugger doesn't." Miller looked at Tancred. "When do I start?" "Right now, if you want to. We go to press tomorrow. Mose " He turned and called to the elderly printer. "Mosc, this is our new man, Mr.—?" "John Bailey," Tancred said, quickly. "John Railcy, Mose Hudkins." Tancred shook hands with the old printer. "A cousin of mine hr,.; a shop Iwek in Sterling. 111.," said. "H« bad • «MUfc &*l**f^ Copyright 1954 by Frank Gruber.

Thought you might be related to him. "I have no relatives in the printing business." "I've got one," declared Miller. "My wife. She's been helping out on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. That reminds me, Bailey, you'll need a place to live." "I checked in at the hotel." "You won't get much sleep there. Not with the Texas men in town," "The proprietor wants my room tomorrow. A special guest. Mr. .Hong Kong Smith." ]Y/J"ILLER grimaced. "The grand L Mr. Hong Kong Smith! So, he's to be with us again. Brings up a half-dozen herds every season, but he doesn't come with the herds himself. Too rough for him. Takes s boat to New Orleans, then a steamer up the river to St. Louis and then here by way of the Kansas & Western. He brings northern gold to Texas. Pays $5 per steer on the hoof and sells it here in Kansas for $30." "Odd name for a cattleman," Tancred observed. "He was a clipper-ship man before the war. Made a pile trading with the Ori«nt At least that's the story he's spread about himself. My personal opinion is that he made his money running slaves from Africa." Miller drew in a deep breath, "II you have no objection," Tancred said, "I coulc* put up a cot here in tht- shop." "I've no objection. I only wish could put you up at the house. But we just don't have the room. Art during ttot o*Ui« MA«* *'*, By Frank Gruber almost impossible to find a place in town. I'll stop in at the Boston Store this afternoon and have them send over a cot and some blankets." "That's fine, Mr. Miller. And now I might as well get familiar with the typecases." "You'll find copy on the hooks. The big one's straight matter, the small one ads." Tancred took off his coat, hung it on a nail and walked to the typecases. Without hesitation he reached for a sheet of copy on the smaller hook. Miller, watching covertly, smiled. 'T'ANCRED left the newspaper A shop a little after 6 and went to his hotel where he washed up. Coming down from his room he stood in front of the hotel a few minutes, then crossed the street to the Bon Ton restaurant and had a supper of fried steak and potatoes. When he came out the street was more crowded than it had been during the day. More horset were tied to the hitchrails. Up the street a cowboy yipped and emptied his revolver. The shooting was repeated by someone at the other end of the street The tinkly music of a piano from the Texas Saloon next door caught his attention and on a sudden impulse he turned and entered. Tancred found a spot at the far end of the bar and ordered a glass of beer from one of the four bartenders. Tancred drank some of his beer, but he did not taste it. A firl began singing and he turned •nd looked toward the itafe at the rear of the room. The ballad wai tht >a*a of Sam Older.
