They yipped and whooped and fired their guns at random, crashing a store window here , and there. | Then Harpending decided to pay a visit to Jacob Fugger. He assumed that he would find him in the latter's store and rode his horse up onto the sidewalk with the intention of riding right into the store. But the doorway was not high enough and he dismounted, leaving the horse in front of the door. That was the moment Wes Tancred stepped out of the Bon Ton Cafe, across the street from Fugger's StoreJ He saw Harpending, gun in hand, plunge into Fugger's place. Tancred started swiftly across the street. One of Harpending's friends sent his horse forward to cut off Tancred. "Where do you think you're going?" he demanded. "Into the store, where else?" The cowboy noted the lack ol armament on Tancred. His code forbade him to shoot an unarmed man and while he hesitated as to how to stop Tancred, th« latter went past him into the store. Inside Fugger's Store, Harpending was advancing toward the On the right, Laura Vesser watched his progress with trepi- Xwo oAimr middle-aged woman, the other an elderly man, were backing away before Harpending. "I want to see the old coot," Harpending was saying. "He told the marshal to arrest me and I wanna know why." Bill Bleek carne down the stairs from the perch in the rear of the store. /'Get out of here. Harpending, if you know what's good for you." "Well, if it ain't Mr. Fugger's errand boy," sneered Harpending. "And without a gun as usual." "I don't fight with guns," Bleek retorted, "but if you'll put down your own gun, I'll break every bone in your body." Harpending raised his rifle, took a careless shot at Bill Bleek. The bullet missed by inches but stopped Bleek on the stairs. Laura Vesser could not repress a little scream and thus called Harpending's attention to her. *THey, what's this? Purtiest girl I've seen in Kansas." He swerved and headed toward Laura Vesser. At that moment Tancred entered the store. Harpending did not sec him. He continued toward Laura. "I'm a ring-tailed civet cat," declared Harpending. "Here— gimrn* a kiss." * * * "LTE had reached the counter and suddenly lunged across it Laura dodged and started away behind the counter. Harpending wheeled to follow and walked into the swiftly advancing Tancred. Harpending yelped in surprise, tried to lever a fresh cartridge into the chamber of the rifle, but Tancred grabbed it savagely out of his hands and threw it to the floor. Harpending went for his revolver, but it never cleared the holster. Tancred's fist smashed into Harpending's face. He crossed riff and as Harpending folded forward Tancred kit him the third and last time, on the jaw. Harpending collapsed. Tancred stooped and grabbing Harpending by the belt yanked him up. Bleek came forward. "If you ain't the hero!" he snarled. Tancred shot him a look, of complete contempt and propelled the half-conscious Harpending to the door. He whipped it open with his left hand, then braced up Harpending with both hands. "Here's your friend," he said to the men outside the door. He shoved Harpending violently forward. The Texas man caromed off one of the horses, hit the hitch-rail and fell on his face in the street. The three friends of Harpending stared. Harpending was their leader. His downfall filled them with consternation. One of them half pulled a gun on Tancred, but lacking Harpending's lead he let the gun slide back. * » * 'TANCRED did not even look back. He went stiffly down the sidewalk, pa^t the hotel. Chuck Gorey, having peered out of the saloon, was coming cautiously out of the saloon. He stared at Tancred in amazement "Is that Harpending back there?" he asked. Tancred nodded his head carelessly, went past Gorey. Tancred continued on to the corner, turned and entered the print shop. "What's an the shooting?" Luke Miller asked. "Just the usual," Tancred replied. But it wasn't more than 10 minutes before Miller had the complete story from a witness. Miller wrote it all down and made certain to give the copy to Mose Hudkins to set up. In the meantime, Tancred was setting up the type for Miller's editorial. The last copy of the Star was taken away from the press by Mrs. Miller shortly after four o'clock and Tancred read the story. ''It was news. I guess', so it had to be printed," he said. P' rornpt DELIVERY SERVICE Phone 3-450?
