"Except for his former affiliation . . ." He drew a deep breath and exhaled heavily. "Give me an hour. I'll talk to the others." "I'll start writing this up." "Good. Oh—I've been thinking. Miller's not going to get a great deal of advertising during the next few weeks so I thought I'd take a rather large ad this week. A half page. . . ." "I doubt n* Mr. Miller would accept a charity ad." Packard grinned. "The only charity is for myself." He waved about "the store. "See any customers?" Tancred returned k> the Star shop and sat down at a table. He found Mrs. Miller busily scrabbling at her husband's desk. "Did you get the story?" she asked, "Yes." Be hesitated. "Would you like me to write it wp?" "I'd appreciate it M you •would." Tancred got a pencil and some paper and went to a table at the rear of the shop. He thought for a moment, then began to write swiftly. He was still at it when Packard entered the office. Tancred got up and went forward. "We've decided to accept Lee Kinnaird," the merchant said. "I don't think you're making « mistake/' Packard smiled and took a sheet of paper from his pocket. "I brought along the ad I talked to you about and I also talked to the others. They'll all have ads for you." "Ads!" exclaimed Mrs. Miller, "I hadn't even given that a thought." "We've got to advertise to stay in business. At least until the election." Packard paused. "If we lose that, w« lose everything." Packard left the shop and Tancred • finished writing the story about the forthcoming election. When he finished it, he took it to Mrs. Miller. She scanned it quickly and when she finished she looked at Tancred worriedly. "Isn't it, a—a little strong?" "I don't know. I tried to write it the way I thought Mr. Miller would write it." "That's what I meant. It sounds just as if he had written it I—I have a feeling that be would like it very much." Tancred looked at her inquiringly. She nodded suddenly. "Set it up." Then, as Tancred turned away: "Oh—John, you write very well. How. is it you haven't bad a newspaper of your own?" "I'm a printer." Tancred took the copy back to the type cases and began to set it up. Mose Hudkins was already working on the local news that Mrs. Miller had written. * * * 'T'HE second trail herd had •*• reached Sage City that morning and the cowboys were in town, roaming the streets. As yet they hadn't been paid, but the owner of the herd was expected to reach Sage City the next day. Lee Kinnaird walked down South Street and made a mental list of the enterprises that Jacob Fugger owned or controlled. There was the Fugger Mercantile Company, where Jacob made his headquarters. The Sage City Livery Stables and Corral were owned outright by Jacob as was the hay and feed business and the lumber yard down by the K & W tracks. The Fugger Produce Company which dealt in buffalo and cattle hides and shipped 100 carloads of buffalo bones every season was another fully owned logger business. Jo« Handy WM th« nominal owner of the Sage City Hotel, but it >vas pretty generally known in town that Fugger had a large mortgage on the place. It was not generally known that Fugger controlled McCoy's Saloon, but the bank held a note of McCoy's. Horace Van Meter was the cashier, but he owned less than one-tenth of the stock, Fugger owned 55 per cent. Morgan Holt apparently owned his Hardware store, but he was under some sort of financial obligation to Fugger. * * * r pHE largest single source of •*- revenue to Jacob wasn't really a business at all; it was a simple agreement he had made with the Kansas & Western Railroad back in '71 when Sage City had sprung up from the prairie. The railroad paid Fugger SI for every steer that was shipped from Sage City. With the exception of the first year, when Jacob had spent money to put up the loading pens which were attached to the railroad siding, all of this reveaue was clear profit. Fugger bought no cattle and he sold no cattle. The K 8c W paid Fugger a great deal of money every year, but it had a realistic attitude about it. It would probably receive much of the freight without Fugger's assistance, but it would lose much of it, too. The eastern Kansas towns that had once shipped considerable number of steers gave the railroad virtually no such freight today. The western settlements, closer to the beef trade, cut down the traveling time of trail herds by days. Fugger diverted many thousands of head of steers from going to the Union Pacific in the north. He cultivated the friendship of the Texas cattle drovers and encouraged them to bring herds to Sage City. The K & W railroad did not mind paying the dollar a head toll to Fugger of Sage City for cattle that might have gone to other points where they would have been shipped on other lines. Kinnaird walked down to the railroad depot and saw restless, bav/ling steers milling around in Fugger's loading pens. A cattle train had been shoved onto the siding and was being loaded for an east»"nrd trip.
