Kearsarge, about 10 miles from her home here, Mrs. Josepho Kovner suddenly remembered she had forgotten to shut off the oven. A Kearsarge custodian started a relay in motion, Sunapee State Park was given the word and passed it on to State Police, who informed local lawmen. A Concord cruiser sped to the Kovner home and officers shut off the oven. The roast was saved.

The result Is • ter- rlflc battle between Tnncred and Bteek ana for the first time Bleek is beaten. XV 'PHE next morning Luke Miller boarded the eastbound train tor St. Louis. "I only hope they have the parts in St Louis," h« said before he left "If they have I'll be back in three days, but if I have to go on to Cincinnati. . - -" "Then we'll miss an issue," said Mrs. Miller. "Itll be the first time." Miller frowned. "And the last." H« went oft and Mrs. Miller, Tancred and old Mose resumed their monotonous sorting of the type. They worked steadily until noon and made scarcely an impression on the heap. Tancred ached in every muscle but oddly enough had greater mental peace than he had had in a long time. After lunch they worked straight through until six when Mrs. Miller called a halt. "I can't tell a 'b' from a 'p' any more," she declared. "There's only so much of this you can do at a time." "We're more than half through," said Tancred. "We'll finish tomorrow." Mrs. Miller and Mose went off. Tancred washed up and walked to the Bon Ton Cafe. As he left the cafe Jacob Fugger called to him from across the street, "You, Bailey, come over here." Tancred looked at Fugger, then ti'~^: a<--ny 'VVVraHy Fugger ^eded aiier ium, but Tan-[Smith cred continued on. Fugger went into the store. Bleek stood just inside "Find me Smith," Fugger said. Bleek went out and Jacob Fugger turned and surveyed his store. The clerks were putting away merchandise, preparing to close up for the day. Fugger's eyes came to rest upon Laura Vesser. He studied her for a moment, then walked over to the counter. Laura regarded her employer in alarm. "I've noticed that there are quite a few men coming into the store since you're here. And they're buying things they haven't got any use lor," he said. "I'm sorry, Mr. Fugger," began Laura. "I've sold them only the things they ask for. . . ." "It's none of your business if they can use the merchandise or not." He nodded shrewdly. "Lee Kinnaird's been coming in a lot. He's taken up with that whatsis- name who works for Luke Miller." "John Bailey?" tpUGGER grunted. "Bafley, yes. •*• He stopped that wild Texas man from annoying you yesterday." He pursed up his lips. "On your way home, would you mind stopping at the newspaper office and telling this, whatsisname, Bailey, that I'd like to se« him." Laura hesitated, then suddenly nodded. "Very well." "Good." Laura got her h»t and jacket. Fugger waited until sht had left the store, then «udd«nly shouted to his other clerk*, "CIos« up now." A lew minutes later when the clerk* had' gone, Hong Kong That bruiser of yours said you wanted to see me." "This man of yours, Harpending ... I haven't seen him around today." Smith's eyes narrowed. "Nei- them have I." "Has he left for Texas?" "Tie doesn't like Texas any more," Smith chuckled. "Or maybe it's Texas that doesn't like him. What do you want with Harpending?" "Do I really have to tell yon that, Smith? All right, Til speH it out for you. I want two or three men for a month or so, until things get squared away." "Gunfighters, eh? Mmm, Harpending's all right, but Fve got a man down in Texas who'd put two bullet* into Harpending while Harpending was trying to draw a gun." Fugger looked steadily at Hong Kong Smith. "Can yoa get him up here for me?" "You can buy anything . . . or anyone . . . for money," said Hong Kong Smith. 'T'ANCRED was sorting out typ« when he heard the door open- Laura Vesser had entered the shop and was coming toward him She said stiffly, "I'm here on an errand for my employer. He wants to see you." "He'd stoop to anything!" • "And you?" she flashed at him* "I saw what you did to the store." "But you didn't see what Bleek did here." Tancred pointed to the type he was sorting. "Thre« of us have been sorting all day. And Mr. Miller's gone to St. Louis to get new parts for the press that Bill Bleek broke." "Why do you have to ftght Fugger and Bleek? Miller's quarrel isn't yours." He said, "Sometimes a ma« can't help but fight."
