On Sonday Tancred and I^ce KInnnlrd. former of Snjce City, KO to a •pot at the edsre of town where cowboys and renldfnts are practicing; shooting with pistols, • * * xvn HPHE eyes of the entire group "*• were upon him. The horseman rode back further, stopped looked back. The tall man in the Prince Albert nodded. "Try it there!" he called. A murmur went up. "Three hundred yards!" Kinnaird nudged Tancred. •"Watch this, now." The Texas men clamored around the tall man in the Prince Albert. "Nobody can hit a target that size with a revolver," shouted one of them." "They probably can't—down in Texas," retorted the tall man. "Any Texan can beat any Yank at anything!" howled an kate cowboy. The tall man pointed at the speaker. "Five dollars says you can't hit that target." "Five dollars says I can if you can," promptly retorted the cowboy. "That's a bet!" "And now," Kinnaird whispered to Tancred, "you'll have a chance to see Mr. Wild Bill Hickok . . ." "Hickok!" exclaimed Tancred. "The one and only. I heard he got in town yesterday, but I didn't know he was staying over. Guess he needs the money. They , don't know they're uo against iWiid BiU. Watefc .. J" Wild Bill suddenly thrust out a long-barreled revolver and without seeming to aim, fired. The cowboy on bis horse, who had pulled over to one side, galloped up to the target. Not believing his eyes, he dismounted and examined the target closely. Then he waved. "He hit it!" A shout went up among the Texas men surrounding Wild Bill Hickok. The man who had made the bet with him drew his gun. "I still got a chance." Manny Harpending rode to the firing line from the left where he had been puttinf hi* horse through its paces. "You're a fool, Hodge," he exclaimed. "That's Wild Bill Hickok." The litter bowed slightly. Harpending jumped to the ground. "All right i* I shoot in place of Hodge?" he challenged Hickok. "Why not?" Hickok asked coolly. Harpending drew his gun and took careful aim at the distant target. He fired and all around him could see a splinter fly from the board. TfTILD BILL HICKOK took a ™ $5 gold piece from his pocket and handed it to Harpending. "You shoot very well, stranger." "Good enough," said Harpending. He tossed the coin to his fellow Texan, Hodge. "Care to move the target back another hundred yards?" asked Hickok. "I can hit any target you can hit," snapped Harpending. But he did not look happy about it. The target wai moved back another hundred jr* r d* or 9O Wild Bill Hickok imiled challengingly at Harpending. "A small wager?" "Now it comes," said Lee Kinnaird to Tancred. "I saw him do tfe* m AbitaM «ix 7«an ago. Only then he fired almost 600 yards. The target was a little larger, but I doubt if there's another man in the entire west who can hit any target at all at 600 yards." "Wasn't there a man named Bartles who shot rings around Hickok in a match during the war?" Tancred asked. Kinnaird looked sharply at Tancred. "You're pretty well posted on shooters." Tancred made no reply. The men had crowded around Wild Bill Hickok, making wagers with him. He squared off, scarcely took more aim than he had previously and fired. Down near the target the cowboys rode up. "He hit it!" A groan went up among the men surrounding Hickok, but Harpending, scowling, took up his position. He^aimed and fired. The bullet kicked up dirt short of the target. "Try it again,** said Hickok. • * * TTARPENDING emptied his revolver at the target, but failed to make a hit. "Sorry, boys," said Hickok as he collected the bets. He jingled the coins in his hand. I'll give $50 to any man who can hit the target." "This is what I've been waiting for," said Kinnaird. He nudged Tancred and stepped up to Hickok, "I'll try that, Mr. Hickok." The smile faded from Wild Bill's face. "Uh, hello, Kinnaird, didn't see you." "Shake hands with a friend of mine," said Kinnaird, easily. "John Bailey, Bill Hickok." Hickok shook hands with Tancred. "Bailey, mm, the name's familiar." "Mr. Bailey works on the Sage City newspaper. Let's see, the offer was $50 to anyone who cam hit the Urget, eh?" "A bet," corrected Wild Bill. "Naturally, I'm not just giving money away. You've got to risk something, too." £• B* Home & Farm Supplies WHAT EVER YOD NEED SEE US Over 30,000 items in Stock — If We Don't Have it . We'll Get It. General Hardware And Appliance Co. 108 W.
