Tnncrcd in Th« man who killed the outlaw Sam Older, who became a legendary figure after hi* donth. Tnn- crcd enters the Texas Saloon and Jienr.1 n =rirl sincrinir the ballad of Sam Oldcr'« death. TPANCRED had heard the song •^ a thousand times, in cow camps, in railroad camps, deep down in mines. In towns and villages, in theaters and in saloons, ion the streets and in houses. He heard it now in the Texas (Saloon, in Sage City, Kan. The girl finished the song and •the applause was thunderous. She left the stage and worked her way through the crowds to the bar. Tancred saw now that she had gorgeously golden hair, a smooth, fine complexion . . . and tired eyes of the palest blue. She said to Tancred, "Your beer's gone flat. Have another." She signaled to the bartender. "Give the gentleman a fresh glass, Chippy." Tancred nodded. "Can I buy you a drink?" "You don't have to. I own the place." "I'll still buy you a drink." "Why? You didn't like my singing. You didn't applaud." "I've heard the song before." ' "Who hasn't? But they still want • it." She looked at him thoughtfully. "You're not a Terras man." He shook his head. "Gambler?" "Printer." "You work for Luke Miller? "You said that just like the ho;1 man," Tancred said. "Luke Miller wants to clear up Sag* City, from hit po*«* «* Copyright 1954 by Frank Grubet. Distributed by NEA Service, Inc view that's probably the right thing. But I run a saloon. So do a lot of other people in this town. The saloonkeepers want an everything-goes town." The proprietress of the Texas Saloon smiled at Tancred. "You see, it all depends on where you stand. What's good for one isn't good for another. By the way, my name is Lily Leeds. It used -to be Maggie Leeds, but Lily sounds better ban Maggie." "My name is Bailey." * • * A LEAN, sardonic-eyed man at ^ Tancred's left turned. "Baiey, did you say?" He wore a Dadge on which was the word, 'Marshal." "Mr. Bailey." Lily Leeds said, ; Marshal Lee Kinnaird." The marshal nodded, his eyes full on Tancred's face. "That wouldn't be John Bailey?"* "Why, yes." "You worked for the stage line at Turkey Crossing." Tancred hesitated, then nodded. Marshal Kinnaird gave a low whistle. "I got a Wichita paper yesterday. It had a piece about you." "I haven't seen the paper, so I don't know what it said." The marshal pursed up his lips. It said that three men killed Ve«er, the station agent. It also said that the horse wrangler then killed said three men." The marshal paused. "With exactly three shots." "That's shooting," said Lily. "And you're a printer?" "I've been a printer for quite a few years," said Tancred. "The job at Turkey Crossing was only a temporary one. Until last week I hadn't fired * gun in quite a while." Lily sifnaled to the bartender "Chippy, beers for Mr. Bailey By Frank Gruber The marshal raised his glass to Tancred. "John Bailey." He quaffed some of the beer. "A printer." "Who works for Luke Miller," ,ily added. Kinnaird grinned. "I'm still drinking." 'You're against Miller?" Tancred asked. "The mayor hired me and he can fire me. And who do you hink is the mayor of Sage City?" The marshal looked covertly over his shoulder. "Jacob Fugger, who owns Sage City." ;i He doesn't own the Texas Sa- oon," said Lily. JACOB FUGGER added the last * digit in the column of figure* and wrote down th* sum. H« ooked at it a moment and pleai- ure seeped through him Business was good and Hong Kong Smith's first trail herd of the season had arrived. Much erf the money that would be paid to Hong Kong Smith would find its way eventually into Fugger's hands' through one or another of the channels that Fugger owned or controlled. Ten years ago, at the age o* 45, Fugger had been a clerk in a dry-goods store, back in a small Ohio town. All he had had to look forward to wai another 20 or 30 years of drudgery, the accumulation of a paltry few dollars every year by personal scrimping. He was a withering, aging man at 45, without hope. And then, one night, there had been a burglary at the store. Five hundred dollars in cash had been taken. Fugger was not suspected o< course. H« had b««n at the itor« too long. But Jacob Fugger had been tht i burglar.
