"Yott'til better go and vote now," he said io Hudkins and Tan<#ed"l haven't been in town long •nough to vote," Tancred said. "You've been here longer than the 62 men who just voted," snapped Miller. Tancred whistled softly. "So that's what the noise was about!" Miller nodded. "Those 62 votes are enough to swing it. About a hundred people voted before they showed up. I think we'd have made it, by 40, maybe 50 votes. I figured oc a total vote of possibly 300 and I thought we'd swing about 170 of the total. But now. ..." He shook bis head. "Have any of the farmers come in yet?" "What farmers? 1 * "Quite a few are stitt around." "They only come into town when they have to. Tb« Texas men push them around." "But they're on your side." A gleam of hope came to Miller's eyes. "If we had enough men and horses " He paused. "The livery stable's jot a dozen horses or more." "It's Fugger's livery stable." "All the better." Miller suddenly chuckled. "Mose," he shouted. "Quick, pull a proof of our subscription list!" While Hudkins followed out Miller's instructions, the newspaperman turned to Tancred. "We can't cover them all, but you and some of my friends can reach half of them, I'm sure. Those you talk to can tell other*," * • • T EN minutes later, astride • rented horse, Tancred rodt out of Sage City. He took the south road, but once he passed the last house, ht turned Vo the west and south, cutting across the prairie. Then a half-burled sod house loomed up before him. It was a miserable house, built at logs and mud, with sod serving for roofing.' Behind it- was a tiny corral in which stood tiro workhorses and a single cow. As Tancred rode up, a man came out of the sod house with a rifle in his hands. The man looked at Tancred through slitted, red eyes. "I don't want no trouble. I'm pulling up stakes in a couple of days and I don't want no trouble with anyone." "I'm not going to make any trouble," Tancred said. "It's just, iwell, they're having an election Jin town today and we'r* asking J everybody to come in and vote." | "Vote for who?" i "That's for you to decid*. Vote 'for whoever you please. The main thing is w« want you io vote." "I dont know nothin' about votin'," the man said, dispiritedly. "I'm a farmer. Least I thought I was"—he mack a sudden, spiteful gesturt with his rifle toward th« east—"if thc*i cowboys'd let me. I had a crop of wheat started and they turned their stetrs loose on it" That," said Tancred, "is what the voting'* about Some of the people in town want to put a stop to thing* like that. And you can help, by voting." The man cocked hi* head to one side. "Nobody care* about us farmers. Everybody calls us squatter*." "A group of p«oplt in town sent me out hert," Taccred persisted. "They want to put a stop to Jacob Fugger's one-man rule of Sige County." "You m«an I could vote against Jacob Fugger?" tht squitttr asked witfc sudden interest "Yc* «nr *And whatll Fugger dte t» anyone who votes against him? 1 * "There's nothing he can do. Besides, he won't know who's voted against him." Tancred grabbed up his rein*. 'Think it over. But remember the polls close at 6 o'clock. Get in town before then if you want to vote." By mid-afternoon Tancred had ridden 30 miles, in a wide circle, and had found eight farmers. Hi* circle had brought him close to Sage City again and his heaving horse told him that he could not ride much farther. Ahead, was a herd of Texas longhorns. He circled to the left and saw that he would pass near a cowboy. The man was slumped in his saddle. As Tancred came up he glanced idly at him and averted his eyes, but suddenly they darted back to Tancred, in sudden shock. A shudder ran through Tancred. He pulled up his mount "Tancred," said Dave Helm* * * T"<HE years disappeared. The •^ man facing Tancred had been one of Quantrell's chief lieutenants, had commanded the troop of which Tancred had been a member. And Dave Helm—Davt Helm had been present when Tancred and Sam Older had faced each other in that crashing finale! Tancred said, "Hello, Dave. 1 * Dave Helm exhaled heavily. "It's been a long time, Wei." H« shook his head "How have things been with you?" "Not good," Tancred replied, steadily. Ke gestured to th« herd. "You're a cowboy?" Helm shrugged. "Texas seemed like a good place, back in '67. I haven't been, north until now." "This is one of Hong Kong Smith's herds?" "I work on his home ranch. You, Wes?" "I haven't stayed very long in one place." "I've heard a lot about you." Helm grimaced. "That song, they sing it all tht time down in Ttxa*. Made thing* kind ol for you, hasn't it?" <T« B« Ci»ntiitv«4) "What do you mean, restful bedroom design? Do you think we go to sleep with the light* on looking at wallpaper?" COOT.
