Main Ph. 3-3616 EXPERT WATER PUMP REPAIR Hubbard Hardware Phone 2-2015 By Frank Gruber xxvin A HEAVY fist banged on the office door and a hoarse voice shouted, "Miss Lily—come out and see what's happening." Lily exclaimed in sudden anger, but stepped past Tancred and pulled open the door. "What is it?" she cried to the bartender who had knocked on the door. "It's outside, there's about a hundred farmers come into town . . . they're going to vote!" Lily whirled on Tancred. "You knew?" "I spent several hours riding around, talking to some of them. And so did some other people on Miller's side. I thought they weren't going to show up, but they did." He started to go out, then stopped. Her eyes met his. "This is it?" "I won't be here tomorrow." The door was open and in the saloon proper a stream of men were pouring toward the front door. Lily laughed. "All right, then." He nodded and went out. When Tancred reached the street, some of the farmers had already gone into the marshal's office/but at least 25 or 30 were still outside, some on horses, some in farm wagons. All were armed. They were quiet, but their eyes were defiant as ;they faced the crowds that had : poured out of saloons on both 'sides of the street Tancred pushed through the .crowd of Texas men and towns' people and crossed to the farmers. He recognized one of the men as one he had spoken to ithat afternoon. | "We didn't think it was heal- j thy to come in one by one," the I man told Tancred. "We met out- i side of town and came in in a i body." > j • • .* i T UKE MILLER came Into the ' *-* print shop a few minutes before seven and found Tancred sitting on the cot. "We won," exulted Miller. "We won by a margin of 27 votes. The farmers did the trick. Tomorrow there'll be a new council, a new sheriff, a new judge. ..." "And a n«w mayor." "And a new mayor!" Miller clapped Tancred on the shoulder., "There are going to be some changes in Sage City. It isn't going to be Jacob Fuggers private town any more. I've got to go home now. We're having a meeting laterJ* "I figured you were in when I saw the farmers." Miller starting off, stopped. "By the way, I don't think I saw you vote." "I didn't. When I got ready there was too much of a crowd there." "That's a fine business." Miller chuckled. "Well, your vote wasn't needed, as it turned out, but don't let any of our friends know you didn't vote." "I won't," Tancred said. Miller left the print shop and Tancred, drawing a deep breath, stood and drew out his carpetbag from under the cot He stepped to the wall and took down his coat from the nail on which it hung. He put it on and without looking back, left the shop. It was almost dark outside and no one paid any attention to Tancred as he walked to the livery stable. He entered and found the attendant forking hay for the horses. "Here's that $100," he said, . The man's mouth fell open. "What $100?" 'The price of that horse," said Tancred. pointing, "That's what you told me it was thii after* noon." The liveryman backed away. 1 wasn't counting on selling an/ horse, not to you." "You said $100," Tancred pursued. "That's more than the horse te worth, but I'm paying you what you asked. And here's $25 for a saddle—any saddle you've got in the place." The man hesitated, then suddenly shrugging, got a saddle and went, into the stall. Ten minutes later, his carpetbag dangling from the saddle horn, Tancred rode down the street The cowboys churned in the street, shouting, firing their guns at the sky and at store windows. Tancred was oblivious. He was astride his horse and no one singled him out for attack or abuse. He rode north to the railroad tracks, crossed and rode down the street, past the house where Laura Vesser lived. He did not see her, did not glance at the house as he went by. Hunched in the saddle, he rode out of town. « * * "TVAVE HELM had lived so long in Texas he had gotten out of the habit of walking. Luke Miller lived less than two blocks from Fugger's Store where he had received his instructions and his directions, but Helm mounted his horse outside the store and walked it down South Street, then right, past the Star printing office and, counting, to the fifth house on the right. It was a square little house of no more than three rooms. It was nicely painted and reminded Helm of the houses in Missouri that were so unlike the Texas homes . . . and which he had not seen for many years. Helm dismounted in front of the house and, stepping on the little veranda that was raised a few inches from the ground, knocked on the door. A man opened the door and looked inquiringly at him. "Is this the residence of Mayor Miller?" Helm asked, politely. "I'm Luke Miller, yes," was the reply. "I'm sorry, Mr. Miller," Helm said. There's nothing personal about this. It's a job of work, that's all." He drew his revolver. Shock hit Miller. Helm raised tht revolver and fired, (To B« Continued) romp I DELIVERY SERVICE Phone 3-4507 Hours: 8 a.m to 9 p.nx with Delivery to " p WOODS DRUG STORE 221 West Main St. JOHNSON GRASS KILLER 99% Pure Sodium Chlorate 700 Lb.
