" "Didn't I hear you say you'd nex r er fired a Frontier model till today?" Tancred nodded. Hickok's eyes became thoughtful slits. "There used to be some fellows over in Missouri, who •were awfully good with Navy guns. Ran into them now and then during the war." Tancred^ drew a deep breath. "Quantrell's men used the Navy model exclusively. I rode with QuantrelL" "That's what I figured." Hickok held up bis hand. "The war's been over a good many years. I guess everyone knows that I was on the other side, but in recent years I'v* talked to quite a few o£ the people who were with you and Fve found a lot of them to be pretty decent citizens." Thanks," Tancred said, cynically. "Mmm," mused Hickok. "When I was with Jim Lane in the early days I met a man who was aw- fwMy good with a Navy gun. In ' fact, he outshot me. Ted Bartles. Ran into him a few years ago. Said the boys over in Missouri put wp a young chap to shoot against htm, back ic '67 or -68 " "Donny Pence." "Ah, you remember!" Hickok chuckled. "Donny was only 19 or 20 at the time, but Ted tells me he shot rings around him. I guess you'd say that since Ted Bartles beat me and Donny beat him, that would make him' just about the best man with a revolver in the countty." "That's possible." "Bartles said this young Donny never aimed, just threw down hi* gun like h* was pointing it at the target and ftred. Wonder v:\it ever became orf young "I'm not Donny Pence," Tancred "Never said you was. Just talking about shooting. Lot of Quantrell's boys were awfully good with revolvers. Frank and Jesse James, the Younger Boys, Sam Older, Dave Helm." Hickok broke off and studied Tancred a moment. "Brings back memories, doesn't it?" Hickok sighed. "Don't do to look back, I guess." He shrugged. "I've had my times." He grunted. "You saw what I had to do today to make a few dollars. As a matter of fact, I'm broke. I got married only two months ago and here I am now, away from home, trying to make a stake. I'm on my way to the Black Hills Country. Well, it's been nice talking to you, Mr. Bailey." He extended his hand, smiling. Tancred shook hands with him. Hickok started to go, then stopped. He looked quizzically at Tancred. "There's a name keeps escaping me. There was a boy who rode with Donny Pence and the others during the war . . . some of the boys say he was a better shot even than Donny . . . you wouldn't remember who that was, would you?" "No," said Tancred. Hickok nodded. "It's not important. Goodby, Mr. Bailey." He went out, on to Deadwood, in Dakota Territory, where he would meet an obscure man named Jack McCall. • • * T UKE MILLER was not on the Monday morning train. Mr*. Mill«r Came into the shop, after going to m««t th« train, a worried look on her face. "Apparently he had to go on to Cincinnati He can't possibly rtturn b«for« Thunday morning." "It wouldn't take more than four or five hours to put the parts into the press." Mos« Hudkins made ready we could still get the paper out by Thursday evening." "But we haven't got a stick of type set!" exclaimed Mrs. Miller. "I know what Mr. Miller would print on the front page," Tancred said. "The slate of candidates Mr. Packard and some other men are putting up against Jacob Fugger and his crowd." Mrs. Miller winced. "That's going to mean more trouble." "Especially since Mr. Miller's name heads the slate." "No!" cried Mrs. Miller. "He's the natural candidate for ! mayor," Tancred went on. "He's lied"the fight against Jacob Fug- I ger." For a moment Mrs. Miller looked crushed, but then she drew a deep breath. "I suppose you're right and if Luke were here, I'd back him ... as usual. Do you suppose you could run over to Mr. Packard's store and get the list?" Tancred nodded. "I'll go over right now." He left the shop and walked to the Boston Store. It was a considerably smaller store than Fugger's big place and had only on« clerk besides Packard, Packard brightened when he saw Tancred. "You've changed your mind. Mr. Bailey?" "No, I haven't Mrs. Miller sent me over to get the details about the candidates. Mr. Miller hasn't returned yet and the rest of us are trying to get the paper ready to go to press." "You're going to get o*t a paper this week?" "We're going ot try." * * * PACKARD walked back to his •*• desk and picked up a sheet of paper. He handed it to Tancred. The latter glanced at it. "MilWr for mayor," said Packard, "Fred Kraft for judge, Herb Classman for prosecutor, besides the six for the council. We still haven't decided on a man foe sheriff." "I'd like to make a suggestion," Tancred said. "Lee Kinnaird." Packard's eye* narrowed. "Until last week he was a Fugger man." "He isn't any more."
