"There was nothing between us, Lee." "I suppose not," said Kinnaird. ~Not if you say so, Laura. Only He shook his head. "I liked him." He looked at her, thoughtfully, a little worry | creasing his forehead. "You, (Laura?" "What do you mean?" she i asked, disconcerted. j ""ou liked him? Or perhaps it's more than just liking him." "Oh, no!" The quickness of her reply did not relieve Kinnaird, He sighed wearily. "I don't think he should may. "You're wrong. I know you're wrong." "Why? "Mr. Miller didn't know who Wes was, I'm sure of that. Besides, he never carries a gun." "He had one at Turkey Cross"No, h* didn't. I mean, he didn't carry one. Please! I was there.

It was then that Wes shot them. He didn't pick the fight." "That sounds just like here." Kinnaird said. *He wouldn't cany a gun, tre wouldn't fight But Miller knew who h* was and counted on him." "Father didn't know who he was. That's the point, Lee. To Father, Wes was just a man who took care of the horses. He told me after it was all over who he was. . . ."

He gripped his right hand with his left and holding it reasonably steady, pulled the trigger. The bullet crashed through the window of the bank. Lee Kinnaird, who had heard the shooting, while he was inside the sheriff's office, came out on the street Swearing under his breath, he started across the street.

The latter, not knowing that the gun was empty, whipped out hi* own revolver and springing forward, smashed the barrel along the side of Smith's head. Hong Kong Smith went over backward, rolling to the sidewalk. The blow that Kinnaird struck him was a hard one and Smith, rolling over, groaned and lapsed into unconsciousness.
