XVIII T^INNAIRD drew bis revolver, -"* took careful aim at the target and fired. The scorers examined the target carefully, then waved arms to indicate a miss. Kinnaird counted, out the ocnoney, as Wild. Bill smiled thinly. "There's a bit of a breeze" said •Kinnaird, "makes it hard to figure at the range." "Let's see Bailey try it," sud- :denly jeered Manny Harpen,ding." "He's so good with a gun, ilefs see what he can do." Tancred shook his head. "I .'haven't got a gun." _ "Use the marshal's," cried Harpending. "Let's see if that •Turkey Crossing story was poppycock or not." "Turkey Crossing:" cried Wild Bill. "Of course. John Bailey, eh?" He shook his, head. "The name was a new one to me, when I read about that in the Wichita paper and frankly, I ..." He suddenly beamed. "I'll lend you my gun, Mr. Bailey. It shoots as straight as any gun can shoot." "I haven't got $50," Tancred said. "Forget the money," Wild Bill said, earnestly. "I'm anxious to see you shoot." He. tendered his revolver, butt first. Tancred made no move to take the gun. Harpending moved for- ward. "Come on, Bailey. see you shoot!" Several of the cowboys took up the chant. Kinnaird whispered to Tancred, "Maybe you'd better try it, Bailey." "I've never fired a Frontier Model," protested Tancred. "You're a Navy gun man, eh? Well, I don't blame you. They've never made a gun like them," stated Kinnaird. "This is a good gun, Mr. Bailey," Wild Bill Hickok said, gently. "I wouldn't use it myself if it wasn't." Harpending said with a sneer, "Yellow, Bailey?" Tancred accepted the revolver from Hickok. A hush fell upon the augmented crowd of spectators. Tancred raised the gun, thrust it out ahead of him at arm's length and fired. The scorers rushed their horses to the target and one or two dismounted to examine the target closely. A sudden yelp of astonishment went up that carried back to the firing line. "That's shooting. Mr. Bailey," said Wild Bill Hickok, thoughtfully. Tancred glanced at Manny Harpending. The Texan's sne*r had gone. In his eyes was a look of doubt ... and fear. * * * '"PANCRED handed the gun back •"" to Wild Bill Hickok and walked away. The cowboys moved aside to give him a clear passage. Kinnaird followed Tancred. Behind them a man came running. "Mr. Bailey!" he called. Tancred looked over his shoulder. The man was Packard, who owned the Boston Store. "I saw your shooting, Mr. Bailey," exclaimed Packard. The former marshal grinned. "You saw mine, too." "1 know. If you don't mind, Mr. Kinnaird. I'd like to talk to Mr. Bailey alone." "Go right ahead." Kinnaird started away, but Tancred detained him with an outstretched hand. "I don't mind Lee hearing, Mr. Packard." "I guess it really doesn't matter. Kinnaird's turned in his marshal's badge, which indicates that he isn't on Jacob Fuggers side at least. Anyway, it won't be a secret much longer. The fact is, Mr. Bailey, I've been talking to a few of the people around town and we're getting up a slate of candidates to run against Fugger and his crowd. Luke Miller's down for mayor and—well, we haven't a name yet for sheriff—" "No," said Tancred, bluntly. "The office is good for six or seven thousand a year." "I'm not interested, Mr. Packard," Tancred said, shaking his head. "I'm a printer." Packard let out a slow sigh. "Well, it was a good idea. The marshal, of course, is appointed by the mayor and the city council, but the sheriff's office is an elected one and I'd hoped . . ." He shrugged. "Thank you, just the same, Mr. Bailey." r TANCRED was lying on his cot, looking at the ceiling of the print shop when someone rattled the doorknob. He sat up and peered toward the door, then exclaiming, got to his fe«t. Wild Bill Hickok was outside the door. Tancred unlatched the door and Hickok came in. "I've always been a curious man, Mr. Bailey," he said. "Guns are my business. I've practiced with them since I was knee-high to a prairie dog. I've fired against some of the best men in the country. I haven't been beaten in a good many years till you beat me today." "It was a lucky shot, Mr. Hickok. And I didn't beat ycni. Lee Kinnaird said he saw you hit a target at 600 yards." "No man can do that all the time." (To B* Continued) TV and RADIO SERVICE Minor Repairs and Tube Re placement in home dnside Ely theville city limits) On/y More Than 20 Tears Training and Experience.
