XXIII T UKE MILLER returned to Sage City on the Thursday morning train. On the train was a pale, drawn-looking man in his mid-thirties. He wore a gray derby, a gray Prince Albert with a gray silk vest. He also wore a broad belt with a_holster that contained a nickel-plated, short- barreled revolver. This was Eric Stratemeyer. whose reputation was known throughout the West. Mrs. Luke Miller and Wes Tancred. who were at the depot, did not see Eric Stratemeyer. Theix eyes were on Luke Miller whose arms were loaded with parcels and two or three wooden boxes. Miller set the packages down on the platform and kissed his w{fe. "We'll have a paper this week," said Mrs. Miller. "We're ready to go to press as soon as the press is ready." Inside the plant of the Star Miller stripped off his coat and rolled up his sleeves. "Let's get to work." "Maybe you'd better read the proofs of the front page," Tancred suggested. Miller caught up the page ' proofs. He had barely glanced at : it then he exclaimed. "Mayor! Me?" He read on and as he "read a gleam came into his eyes. Finally he looked up and drew a deep breath. "It's great!" cried Luke Miller. One of the delivery boys brought a bundle of newspapers into the Fugger Store and deposited them on the counter where Laura Vesser worked. She read Tancred's article, the frown on her face growing as she read. Then the newspaper was whisked out from under her eyes by Bill Bleek. Tor the boss!** Fugger had begun to total the results of the bir':*?ss of his By Frank Grufoer j glumly at Bleek as the latter appeared with the newspaper. "So thev got out a paper, after all!" Fugger took the paper and began to read. A spot of red appeared on his cheeks, began to | grow. "So Miller wants to be mayor," he finally said. "They were pretty close- i mouthed about it," said Bleek. j "but I got a hint of it a couple of days ago." "Why didn't you tell me?" "It was just a rumor and I couldn't check it. They offered the sheriff's spot to John Bailey, but he turned it down." • "There's something about this Bailey I can't put my finger on,' : said Fugger. "A man named Stratemeyer came to town today." said Bleek. "You . . . sent for him?" "Nobody knows that," "Three people today told me that you sent for him." Fugger made an angry gesture. "Stratemeyer hasn't been in here and he isn't going to be. He's going to deal faro for McCoy." "And what about those gunfighters Hong Kong Smith's bringing up from Texas? What're they going to do?" "Where'd you hear about them?" snapped Fugger. "Smith likes to talk." * • * HPHAT evening Bill Bleek went to McCoy's Saloon and he gambled. He sat in the faro game of Eric Stratemeyer. Stratemeyer was widely known for his prowess with a gun, but it was also known that he ran an absolutely straight game and his table had a good play. Bleek played for five or 10 minutes and lost Td better not lose this on«," he muttered". Eric Stra'cmeyer gave him a out of his box. "Queen wins, seven loses/' he droned. Bleek's money was on the seven. He reached out. 'Tay me." "Seven loses, friend," Stratemeyer said. Bleek's reaching hand became a fist that darted across the table and exploded on the point of Stratemeyers jaw. The gambler crashed backwards over his chair. He scrambled clear and the cheap nickel-plated revolver was somehow in his fist. The gun roared and a spot appeared in the center of Bill Bleek's forehead. Bleek swayed for an instant, then his body sagged to the floor. Stratemeyer looked coolly around at the stunned witnesses. "Well?" he asked. No one said a word. * » * | T EE KINNAIRD came into the Texas Saloon and saw Wes Tancred at the bar. He was watching Lily Leeds, who was at the back of the room talking, to the piano player. Kinnaird walked up to Tancred. "Bill Bleek just picked a fight with Eric Stratemeyer." Then, as Tancred looked at him inquiringly, "Bleek found out that a fist's no good against a gun. He's dead." "Jacob will have a hard time replacing him." "He's already been replaced," said Kinnaird. "Stratemeyer. Or, didn't you know that Fugger sent for him?" Tancred shrugged. Kinnaird continued: "Fugger sent a telegram to Stratemeyer. Laura Vesser told me about it." Tancred's eyes came to Kinnaird's face Mid the former marshal did not avert his own eyes. "Fugger's deep. Could be, he wanted it to leak out that he'd sent for Stratemeyer.'* "Possibly." "You've heard of Stratemeycr'i reputation." "Who hasn't?" *I don't suppose it*s occurred to you that Stratemeyer's bei«£ here has anything to do with you?" rom.p DELIVERY SERVICE Phone 3-450? Hours: 8 a.m. to 9 p.m, with Delivery to 7 pjm.
