Bill Block, to commit vandalism on Miller's newspaper. WCM Tancred, known in .Snpc City a« .John Bailey, wrecks FisfTffi-r's (store in return. The result is a terrific fist battle between Tniiereil and Bleck and for ihe fir.xf time Hleek IM beaten, l.'ndismaycd. the nnNeri»i>uIous Finssrer wends I. a u r n \>s«er. pretty olerk isi hi.s store, to (>rin=r Tnncrcd to him. Lntira Is an old friend of Tanoreil'w nnd^ is the only person in ^.'T<' ClJy who knoxvr. his real n:mif is not John Unite? . XVI TpANCRED took off his shop _ apron and put on his coat. 'He left the shop and walked to Fuggers store. "I got your message," he told Jacob Fugger. "Oh, Bailey," growled Fugger. !"How are you?" 1 Tancred made a small, impatient gesture, to dismiss the trivialities and to indicate that Fugger should get doxvn to the subject. "They tell me you're a good iman. Bailey," Fugger said. ! "You didn't send for me just ito tell me that." i "In a way I did," replied Fug- jger. "I like a good man. I like 'to have him on my side." "I'm working for Luke Miller." "How much is he paying you?" "Enough." t "I doubt that. He can't afford it. He's got $182 in the bank and he still owes over $600 on his shop equipment. His gross income last month was $314.50." "You seem to know quite a lot of Mr. Miller's affairs." "I make it my business to know everything. If Miller's paying you $25 a week, he's drawing down about $10 a week for himself." "He's paying me only $20 a week." Jacob Fugger snorted. "For a man of your caliber?" "Mose Hudkins can set up more type than I can." "A typesetter!" Fugger brushed it away. "Who's talking about setting up type? You beat Bill Bleek with your fists. No man has ever done that before. And they tell me you're a fancy man with a revolver, and that's something Bleek's no good with. I can use a man with your qualifications." "To kill Luke Miller?" Jacob Fugger actually chuckled. "You like to call a shovel a shovel. Good. So do I. I'm going to smash Luke Miller. I have to put him out of business because he's threatening my business. That's the long and the short of it, I've got to get rid of Miller. I'll kill him if I have to, but I'd rather not. I just want him to close up his newspaper. I want you to work for me and I'll pay you $50 a week," "It's not enough." "I pay Bleek only 40 a week. How much do you think you're worth?" "I imagine you're a man, Mr. Fugger, who believes everyone has a price." "Yes." "You're probably right. I suppose I have my price, too. I'll tell you what I'll do, I'll leave Sage City tomorrow morning ..." Tancred paused, "if you will." Fugger exclaimed angrily. "I made you an offer. I now withdraw that offer. Good night, Mr. Bailey!" * * * CUNDAY morning was quiet. ^ Tancred was awake befcre daybreak, but remained in the print shop until almost 8. Then he had breakfast at the Bon Ton e and stood for a little while outside the restaurant. The street was virtually deserted. A church bell tolled north of the Kansas & Western tracks and Tancrcd blinked. He. had not known there was a church in Sage City. He realized that he knew very little of what went on north of 'the tracks and decided to take a AH, THAT'S IT, HARRY/ WOW OVER SCRATCH IN'S ALWAYS START ALL, HIS OTHER SHOULDER 6LADE AMD DOWN A LITTLE/ nuDou & FORUJME TELLER QUESTIONS i ANSWERED HOWSOMEVER, TAKER OF TMIS JIVE-BIN IS ALLOWED ONE PSEE TREAT —I'LL MAKE MINE , A 5 SCOQPEfc-DOOPER / TUAKJK5 WELUFX5OODNESS fc-iMiNiv^ y CAKE-— .

Soberly dressed men and women who were wearing fine dresses were entering the building. About 10:30 he walked to the Bon Ton Cafe and had a cup of coffee. When he came out Lee Kinnaird hailed him from across the street. "Doing anything special?" Kinnaird asked as he came up. "As a matter of fact, I'm having a hard time doing nothing." "Then walk with me do\vn there." He pointed to the south of town and Tancred, whose ears were becoming attuned to almost perpetual gunfire, realized that there was shooting out beyond the limits of Sage City. "There's always a bunch of people out there on Sundays doing target shocting." said Kinnaird, "and now with the Texas men here we might see some fancy riding and roping." * * * 'T'HEY walked past the last house on the street to a stretch of flat prairie-land, where a dozen or more Texas men were showing off their skill with horses and the rawhide riatas they had brought with them. Off to one side another group of Texans were shooting at targets set up. Among the Texans were a few Northerners. As Kinnaird and Tancred came up, one of the latter, a man wearing a Prince Albert and a brocaded vest, was emptying a six-shooter at a board target, fully a hundred feet away. He hit the board each time. "Put the target back a piece," he said. A cowboy sprang for his horse standing nearby and galloped it to the target. Swinging down low on the right side of his horse, he grabbed up the board and carried it back another hundred feet or so. Then he stopped his horse and waved the board. "Far enough?" he yelled. The man in the Prince Albert gestured the horseman back. Mtre!" he called. (T« Be Continued) More Thau 20 Tears Trainins and Experience. Factory Service Guarantee on All Makes. Blytdeville Sales Co.
