Bill Bleek. to the ncw«pnpcr to smash the machinery and dump all of the type eases. * * * XIII *PANCRED ate supper and then walked back to the Star office, his mind preoccupied and he was inside before he became aware of Bill Bleek's vandalism. A groan was torn from his throat. He walked through the shop. The type was undamaged, but it would take all of them a dozen hours to sort it out so it could be used again. The press could be repaired, but new parts would have to be obtained and •none was available closer than 'St. Louis. A cold rage seeped through Tancred. A physical injury to a •person he could understand, but to destroy machinery and dump out type like this that would consume hours of painstaking toil. . . . Lee Kinnaird, standing across the street from the newspaper office, watched Tancred go into the shop. He was halfway across the street when a pair of mounted men swirled around the corner from South Street and bore down upon the print shop. One of the riders was Manny Harpending. Kinnaird stopped in the middle of the street and the Texas men pulled up their horses. "Where do you think you're going, Manny?" Kinnaird asked quietly. •"You ain't the marshal of this town any more," sneered Har; pending. "That's right, I'm not," said d, calmly. "I quit this afternoon, because Jacob Fugger wouldn't let me kill you." "I ain't afraid of you, Kinnaird," blustered Harpending. "Any time you're looking for a showdown. . . .** "What's the matter with right now?" Harpending moistened his lips with bis tongue. He knew Kinnaird's reputation. A man had to be awfully good to draw a gun against him, "I got no quarrel with you," Harpending growled. "Then turn your horse and ride out of town—and stay away." Harpending hesitated. The Texas man with him regarded him in astonishment. "You gon- na let him get away with that?" "This is Lee Kinnaird," snarled Harpending. "You fight him if you want to." He whirled his horse and sent it galloping away. His friend was close behind him. Lee Kinnaird relaxed. He turned his eyes toward Luke, Millers print shop, then he turned and walked back across the street. Inside the print shop, Wes Tan r cred stared down at the bundle of his carpetbag. A long, slow sigh escaped his lips. At last' he closed the carpetbag and placed it under his cot. He sent one more glance about the print shop, then he left and walked to South Street. BUGGER'S STORE was closed for the day.- Tancred tried the door, then stepped to the street and picked up a rock as big as his fist. H[e heaved it through the glass of the door, then reached inside the aperture and shot back the bolt. He went inside and started automatically for the right then swerved and went over to the left side. He put his foot a#unst the grocery counter, gavt A shovt and knocked it over on its side. Stepping on it, he reached to the top of the shelving, gripped it firmly and backed away. The shelves can^e over and merchandise spilled over the floor. Tancred got some bolts of cloth and dumped them onto the groceries, then performed the coup d'etat. He found a barrel of blackstrap molasses and kicked it over so that the molasses poured over the groceries as well as the bolts of gingham and muslin. Most of Tancred's anger went with that but there was still a little left so he climbed the stairs to Jacob Fugger's office and emptied all the drawers of Fugger's desk onto the floor and kicked the papers around a little, Four or five people were standing just outside the door as he came out. "Tell Jacob it was John Bailey," he told them, "and I'll be at McCoy's Saloon for 20 minutes." * * * TT was 15 minutes later when Bill Bleek came into McCoy's Saloon. He found Tancred at the bar with an untouched glass of beer in his hand. A happy expression was on the big man's face. "I'm glad you paid back the visit, Bailey," Bleek purred. "It wouldn't have been half the fun if you hadn't." "How are you going to fight?" Tancred asked. "The way I always fight For keeps." Bleek peeled off his coat and tossed it on the bar. A bartender called for McCoy and the saloonkeeper rushed up from the rear. He sized up the situation instantly. "Not in here, Bill!" he cried out. "Jacob will pay for the damage," Bleek said. To Tancred, "Oh, he's really mad. The mo- lassts, you know." "That was for the ink," Tancred said. Ble*k nodded. "Oh, sure."
