By Frank Gruber XXXIII A FTER a moment Laura smiled faintly. "I want to wash up." She started away, then stopped. "You know that Luke ^ :il " r W as killed right after you left?* He could not conceaa a start and she went on into the stage station. For long moments, Tancred remained standing wher.e she had left him, then Waxman, the agent, came out and called to him, "Grub's ready." When he had finished eating, Tancred went out and took care of tht horses. He came out of the corral and found Laura standing nearby. "Who killed him?" he asked. *No one knows who fired the fun. Fugger and -Smith say it was ... you." "That's nonsense! Miller meant more to me than any man I've met in ... in years." "They say you killed him because he found out who you were." "They know . . . everyone?" "Yes." He was silent for a moment, !but a little frown grew on his if ace, a frown that had seldom icome on his features, usually cold land impassive. "What do you ithink?" "I don't think—I know—that you didn't kill him.** "Whaf* Mrs. Miller doing?" "What can she do?" Tancred hesitated. *T thought perhaps she'd keep on with the ipaper." "That's a man's job.* "Women have run newspapers." "Not in Sage City, not with Jacob Fuf ger owning the town," He drew a slow breath. "Who's mayor of Sage?" "Who tlit?" •How couM he be? Hit term %as up. Even with Miller dead. What al-out the city coun«.u?" L "WfcAt aoynciU* I "So it's like that. But . , . Lee Kinnaird?" "He arrested Hong .Kong Smith and a mob broke into the j and turned him loose." "Lee?" exclaimed Tancred. "He was hurt, but he's all right He—he says you left Sage City because you were afraid that your staying would hurt Mr. Miller—when people knew you were Wes Tancred. ..." She paused. "Good night—Wes." She turned and walked toward the stage station. Tancred walked toward the corral with certain steps and swinging open the gate went inside and found his own horse. He led it out and saddled it in front of the stable. He' looped his carpetbag over the horn and swung up into the saddle. He rode past the stage station at a careful walk and did not see Laura Vesser standing in the dark open doorway. Laura watched him ride away, then went into the station. TT was shortly after seven o'clock on Thursday morning when Tancred rode down South Street .in Sage City. There were only aifew people on the street at this early hour, but one or two stopped and stared at him, as he rode by, looking neither to the right or the left Tancred stopped in front of the Star plant and looked inside. It was deserted. He stepped away from the door and turned toward the Miller home. He knocked on the door and it wa« opened by Mrs. Miller. For a moment she stared at him in astonishment, then she leaned against him. Tancred put his arm about her shoulder and she put her bead on his chest and sobbed. -1 • didnl "do ' it, Mrs. Miller," Ta-.cred said. face. "I know you didn't. It was ... Jacob Fugger. I—1 always 'felt that it would come to that." She stopped and dabbed at her eyes with the skirt of her apron, 'Then she cleared her threat "Come in, John." He followed her into the house. "Sit down," Mrs. Miller said, pointing to a rocking chair. "What are you going to do... about the paper?" "We owed some money on the equipment; they'll take it The rest . . . Mose thought perhaps I could sell it to the newspaper at Dodge or Ellsworth." "No," said Tancred. "Keep the newspaper." "But I can't run it—alone." "I'll help you." She stared at him. For a moment a ray of hope showed in her eyes, but then it faded and she shook her head. "It wouldn't work. It would only be the same thing over again." Perhaps, but Fugger'll know it, this time," Tancred said. A little shudder ran through Mrs. Miller. . "But that's revenge. And—and then you'll be like Luke—dead—and no one will be any the better for it." "The town will," said Tancred. "And perhaps some of the people. People who've b«en frightened and intimidated. That was the way Luke thought about it He knew he was risking his life.** * * * missed last week," she mused aloud, "and there's a lot of the local stuff still standing. We could do without the ads, or perhaps just run some of ihe old ones to fill up space. . . .** She turned suddenly and went to a shelf beside the stove. She took down a large key and extended it to Tancred. Tancred unlocked the door of the Star shop and went inside. He set his carpetbag down beside Miller's desk ; «jot some paper and a pencil. Words had been pour- ng through his mind and he began to write. He wrote a heading, in large letters, "Jacob Fugger Murdered Luke Miller." Then below he begin to write.
