Main Phone 3-3647 XXTX |"\AVE HELM tied his horse to the hitchrail at Fugger's store and, crossing the sidewalk, knocked at the door. Hong Kong Smith opened it. "Jt ? s don*, 5 * Dawt said, enter- By rrvnk GttiDtr Hong Kong Smith took out a huge whit« handkerchief from his breast pocket and mopped his forehead. He looked at Jacob rugger. "Satisfied?" "He wouldn't have ft any other way," Fugger said. "He kept crowding me aH the time." "Oh, shut up," said Hong Kong Smith. He gestured to Dave Helm. *Come on." The Texas Saloon wa* more crowded than it had ever been fa it* four years' existence. They •were standing two and three deep at the bar, but Smith grabbed a man by the arm and whirled him away. Another man he elbowed aside. And once he reached the bar he used his huge bulk to shove a apace clear tor Dave Helm. Helm sipped at the whiskey and a warm glow spread through him. Lily Leeds stepped up on the little platform and began to sing. She sang the song of Sam Older and Wes Tancred and there was a catch in her voice and a huskiness that had never been there before and men in the room became silent and listened. A man stopped whirling a chuck-a-luck cage and a faro dealer covered his box with his hands and stared at the layout before him. At the bar, Dave Helm listened 'to the song and the knuckles of his hand whitened as his fingers closed about the glass in his nst and finally the glass collapsed and he let the broken ptecec laH to the floor. Lily finished the song and for a moment there was a dead si- ilcnce in the crowded saloon. Then |a maa eteppsd aod at* took it up until the room vibrated from the concussion. Lily, her face taut, her eyes stony, walked through the room to her office. She put her hand on the door to go in and could not. She couldn't go into the little room where Wes Tancred had revealed himself that afternoon. She could not go into the room ... alone. * * * TTONG KONG SMITH boomed, "Mighty good singing Lily girl, mighty good.* Lily looked at the strained fact and the piercing eye* of Dave Helm, "You didn't like it?" "I liked your singing, ma'am," replied Dave Helm. "I didn't like tb« song." ..Lily stared at him. "Someone else told m« that* Her eyes fell to Dave'* hand. "You're bleed- Helm opened his hand and looked at the blood on his palm. "It's nothing, ma'am, just a little cut" Lily's eye* dropped to the floor, saw the little shards of glass. Her eyes came up to meet Helm's once more. "Why don't you like the song?" " 'Cause it ain't true, ma'am," Helm said, simply. "Sam Older was n*ver no hero and Wes Tancred wasn't any coward. The song is a He, ma'am!" "You,* said Lily Leeds, "are Dave Helm." He made an odd little bow. "You know him," Lily said. "You talked to him today." "Wes Tanered, ma'am? Why, yes, he came along this afternoon and we had a little talk." Hong Kong Smith's huge right hand reached out and struck Helm's shoulder. "Wt* Tancred . . .?" Hehti wrenched hie shoulder free of Smith's grip and faced his employer, a spot of color on each cheek. "Don't do that again, Mr, Smith!" h* said, softly. Thai about," cried Smith. "He's here HI Sage City?" "Why, yes!" * * * T EE KINNAIRD came along the bar. He was coatless and a star was pinned on the left side of his shirt. His face was sober, his eyes like those of an eagle, searching for prey. He came up to the group and said, "Luke Miller was killed 15 minutes ago.* "Oh, no!" gasped Lily. "Fugger wouldn't dare." "He dared all right" H<3ng Kong Smith pointed a thick forefinger at the star on Kinnaird's chest. "You didn't waste any time pinning that on." Kinnaird said, "Fugger himself hasn't got the nerve to kill a prairie dog and Eric Stratemeyer was in McCoy's all evening, so it was one "of your men who did the job." "Maybe," sneered Smith, "then again maybe it was your friend, what's he been calling himself?— Bailey. Shooting people when they ain't locking's in his line." He stopped, as Kinnaird's eyes bored into him. "Or maybe you didn't know your fine friend was the dirty coward, Wes Tancred." "So that's why he's left town!" "What?" cried Smith. "He's run out? That proves his guilt." "It proves only that he's gone," retorted Kinnaird. "Mrs. Miller saw the killer. It wasn't," he continued firmly, "John Bailey." * • * T AURA VESSER was in bed, but not asleep when Mrs. Martin came to her room. "I—I thought you might want to know. Mr. Miller, the newspaper publisher, has been killed." Laura gasped in dismay. She sprang out of bed. "How—how was he killed?" she asked, fearfully. "I don't know rightly. Mrs. Miller told the sheriff that someone knocked on their door and when Mr. Miller aotwcnd, h* wa« shot down. But there's talk that a man working for him did the shooting. . . ." "Not—John Bailey!"
