Seeing some men working in and out of the box card, Kinnaird ; strode over. ; Kinnairdj recognized two of the men. They were brothers named prairie south of town the year [before. They were loading furni- iture and farming implements into the box car. mayor, if the county had a sheriff who would keep the cattlemen from breaking down the farmers' fences, and if there was a county judge who protected your rights?" The younger fawed. "That'll never happen "It might happen inside of two weeks," said Lee Kinnaird. : The older Strasser said, "Uh- i uh. If Luke Miller was elected ' > tne box car. or of Sage City Jacob Fug . You're pulling out?" Kinnaird would have him ^^ : asked in surprise. ; * a * i The older of the Strassers, a I , L , jsquat, heavy-set man of about , TEE KINNAIRD started back i40, shrugged". "What else? We put j J ' J toward the town. As he : " a hundred acres of wheat in ; passed the depot a voice called jthe fall. A week ago it looked like jit would run close to 50 bushel j to the acre. Today there isn't a (blade of it standing." . "Cattle!" snorted the other :Strasser brother. "But your farms were fenced in!" "Were fenced in is right," said the other brother. "Them cowboys broke down the fences. We go to see the marshal and the judge yesterday. The marshal says it's none of his business what happens outside the town 'limits and the judge called us squatters and said we had no right to put up fences anyway, i We know when we're licked. So do the rest of the farmers who settled here., They'll be pulling to him. "Mr. Kinnaird!" Laura Vesser was coming out of the depot. | "Hello," he said, "what're you' doing here?" i "Mr. Fugger sent me here with a telegram." She fell in beside him. "Who is Eric Stratemeyer?" "He's a gambler. At least, that's the way he makes his liv- \ ing, but he's better known for ." Then he looked at her sharply. "Why?" "I just happened to hear his name." "This telegram that Fugger's sending ... it was to Stratemeyer?'* Loyalty to her employer caused Laura to become evasive. didn't say that I just wondered the out one by one." - . "Do either of you read the about Eric Stratemeyer Sage City Star?" Kinnaird asked.' name's rather unusual." "Sure, we both read it. all j "Stratemeyer's an unusual the time.

They broke up all his machinery and now he's out of business. So are we. We're going back to Illinois." "You liked it here?" "Sure, but we got families. We have to liv* where w* can make a living." "Would you slay in City having killed about a dozen; men." | Laura shuddered. "You said i he was a gambler." j "He's a faro dealer. Most of the men he'i killed played i against him . . . and all of them ; drew guns against Stratemeyer. Strat«m«yer'i n t v e r killed • man rxcept in self-defense. r if, say, Luke Miller were elected I Her forehead becamt creased as she frowned. "Some men were talking in the store this morning, about Wild Bill Hickok being in town yesterday." "That's right." "Is it true that someone beat him shooting?" "What you want to know," said Kinnaird, "is if John Bailey has a chance against Eric Stratemeyer?" She gasped. "I didn't say that!" "You're taking the long way around, but that's what you're getting at, isn't it? Fugger sent a telegram to Stratemeyer and you have reason to believe that he's coming here to kill Bailey." For a moment she kept her face averted. He said, "Your last name is Vesser. You saw John Bailey in action." She emitted a slow sigh. "I was there when he — when he killed those men, but it all happened so fast that I—I don't know what to think. He's made an enemy of Mr. Fugger and ..." » "You're worried about him." A note of dullness came into Kinnaird's tone. * * * rrANCRED stood at the bar in - 1 - the Texas Saloon. Lee Kinnaird entered and saw Tancred. "Evening, John," he said. "Evening, Lee." "Gil Packard talked to me this afternoon," Kinnaird said. "He said you suggested my name for sheriff. I accepted." "I hoped you would.* Tancred took a sheet of paper from his pocket, unfolded it and handed it to Kinnaird. It was a proof of the article he had written for,the Star. Kinnaird read it through carefully, then refolded and handed it back to Tancred. "That's a pretty strong piece." Kinnaird said, slowly, "but I saw something this morning that kinda made me glad you put up my name.for that job. I was down at the depot and talked to a couple of farmers who're pulling up stakes. They tell me that most of the others who've settled here the last jear or two intend to leave." <!• B* Continued) I rompt DELIVERY SERVICE Phone 3-4507 Hours: 8 a.m to 9 P.JDOL with Deliver? to 1 p.m. 221 West Main St. *Mt's reading so much that keeps you overweight!
