Fugger r«ad the editorial In cold silence. When he finished he Cursed once, bitterly. Then he iread the rest of the paper, skimming through the social and personal items. Finally he swung Ihis chair around. "He's gone too far," he said to Bill Bleek. Bleek nodded. "Well?" "It's too late to talk to him. He's got to have a lesson taught him." "Some broken bones?" Fugger hesitated, frowning. "A lot of people like him." He shook his head. "No, don't hit him. Just a warning." Bleek nodded. He walked down the stairs and out of the store to the office of the Sage City Star. He peered through the window and saw that the place was empty. He grinned wickedly and opened the door. He went past Luke Miller's desk in front and stepped up to the printing press. He knew nothing of printing but even to his unpracticed eye this was obviously the machine that printed the paper. It was too big, too heavy for one man to turn over without leverage, so he searched until he found a hammer and light-heart- facok* a few rod* and b*t* mass* By Frank Gruber that were not too massive and smashed a few teeth out on some gears. He spied the typecases and pulled out the drawers, dumping the type in a heap, then kicking it about the shop. He knocked over a stock of newsprint, found some cans of ink and dumped them onto the newsprint He knocked over the paper cutter and broke a bar on it. That was all the real damage it seemed that he could do, but on leaving he saw Miller's desk and with a heave sent it crashing loudly on its side. * * * JUDGE OLSEN banged- his «* wooden mallet on. the table. "Bring the prisoner before the bar," h« said officiously. The courtroom was rectangular located over the marshal's office and the jail. It contained half a dozen chairs, some benches and a plain wooden table at one end. Hong Kong Smith and some of the Texai m«n were in the courtroom when Chuck Gorey brought Harpending into the room. Harpending was quite un- chastened. Gorey looked gloomily at the prisoner standing near Hong Koog Smith. "The judge waatt you up front," he said. Harpending swaggered up to the judge's table. "It was self- defense," he growled. "I caught him cheatin' and he pulled his gun on tne." "Just a moment, Mr. Harpending," Judge Olsen said. "This haf got to be done lefal-like and according to Blackstone. You got to b* sworn in, to tell the whole truth and nothin' but the truth, so help you God?" "You callin' me a liar?" Harpending asked belligerently. "No — no," replied the judge hastily. "Lut you've got to be sworn in. That's customary," The judge's worried eyes saw Jacob A BiM Btetk the courtroom and he brightened. "See here, prisoner, you'll do what you're told or I'll fine you for contempt of court." Hong Kong Smith pushed forward. "Now, wait a minute, Judge. This man works for me and I'm going to see that be get* a square deal . . .** "He'll get it," snapped Fugger, coming forward. "He'd better," growled Smith, Fugger signaled to the judge. "Proceed with the trial^ Your Honor." "That's what I'm trying to do." The judge fixed his shifty eyea once more on the prisoner. "Now, do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God . . .?" Harpending began to bluster again, but Hong Kong Smith dropped his huge hand on his shoulder. "Do as he says." "All right, I swear." "Good," said the judge. "Now, let's see. You're charged with shooting one Henry Thatcher, said Henry Thatcher being now deceased. How do you plead, guilty or not guilty?" "Not guilty," said Hong Kong Smith, calmly. "I saw the whole thing. The dealer pulled his gun on Harpending and Harpending shot in self-defense." • • * T^HE judge sent a quick look at "*- Fugger. The latter nodded. The judge exhaled in relief. "Were there any other witnesses?" Hong Kong Smith Signaled to his crowd. "These boys all saw it Didn't you, boys?" The Texas men gave their answers in a single chorus. "We sure did!" .Judge Olsen nodded amiably. In that case, I find the prisoner not guilty." The Texas men, including Harpending, let out a whoop of approval. It took Judge Olsen a full 30 seconds pounding with his mallet to bring them to silence. "There's another charge against Mr. Harpending," he announced. "Disturbing the peace. I find the prisoner guilty ss charged and fine him $25." AUTO. TRUCK AND LONG HAUL TRUCK INSURANCE At Low Rates United Insurance Agcy.
