Main Ph. 3-4585 XXXVI TTONG KONG SMITH walked in front At his left were Manny Harpending and Dave Helm. On his right was Eric Stratemeyer, coatless, the cheap, nickel-plated revolver conspicuous in its holster. Behind the quartet came the Texas men. Chuck Gorey came around the side of the jail, saw Tancred and stopped. Tancred said, "I thought you might miss it, Gorey." Sudden fear showed on Gorey's face. He started to back away, but Tancred halted him. "Stand still." He nodded to Kinnaird. "Bring out bugger." Kinnaird waited a brief mo- iment. "I let him out the back tway.** "So tec thousand was your price!" "No," said Kinnaird. "R wasn't the money." "Never mind. It's too late." He took another backward step and Kinnaird moved out of the doorway, across from Tancred. A dozen feet away Hong Kong Smith stopped. "Your half hour's up," he growled. Gil Packard, Prosecutor Glassman, Judge Kraft and the other men who had called on Tancred a half hour ago, came around the cdrner and started across the Without looking at them, Tancred said, sharply, "Keep out of this. It's my fight" Eric Stratemeyer pointed. "Is that the gun with which you killed Sam Older?" His voice was a taunt "In spite of his faults," Tancred said, taking it up, "Sam Ol-'cr never asked for the odds." thickly, *<Hong Kong, I didn't bargain for this," He took quick step forward, made a hall turn to face the Texas men. "Ill kill the first man who makes a move. ..." Still sneering, Stratemeyer's hand streaked lor his gun. He was fast, terribly fast^ yet nine years ago, Tancred would have beaten him. Stratemeyer's gun was in his hand, spouting flame and lead, when Tancred's came up. It was the speed of the draw and the fast triggering that was so necessary to a professional gunfighter of Stratemeyer's caliber that beat him. He drew fait and he fired fast, but hi« aim was not true enough. Ht counted entirely on his speed, Hii first bullet missed Tancred by a hair's breadth and hii second tore through Tancred r i shirt and barely grazed hit skin. Then was no third bullet, for Tancred's caught him squarely between the eyes. Tancred made hit. half-swivel, caught Kinnaird with his gun clearing the holster. Kinnaird, in that last instant of his life, saw his fate and started to cry out Tancred's bullet choked it off. * * * TTARPENDING went for his *•*• gun a fraction of an instant after Stratemeyer, but ht never quite got his gun out Davt Helm's bullet caught him in the stomach and Harpending folded forward. Hong Kong Smith was suddenly paralyzed. His hands want half-way up and he babbled: "Don't shoot—don't shoot—" His lips twisted into a sneer, Dave Helm stepped forward. Ht thrust out his gun so that tht muzzle was almost touching Smith. He said, "This is the way I gave it to Luke Miller . . ." and pulled tht trigger. Tancred turned on Chuck Gorey Th? c*;-rr" ~ "\\ stcc*\ •*'*• w*k open in irifbt. hand frozen, halfway to his gun. "Go ahead, Gorey!" snapped Tancred. But Gorey could not move. Then Jacob Fugger hurtled out from between the jail and the adjoining building. There was a gun in his hand. His eyes, the eyes of a madman, were straight ahead. And straight ahead of him, his back turned to Fugger, was Dave Helm. Fugger pulled the trigger. Tancred saw the bullet hit Helm, hurl him forward to his knees. He turned his gun on Fugger, but held his fire. Slowly, with great effort and agony on his face, Dave Helm twisted around. His gun came up—thundered. Fugger let out a scream and hit the earth. Helm's tortured eyes met Tan- crtd'a across the distance. "Goodby, We«!' he choked. Helm's eyes glazed and he fell forward on his face. Not one of the Texas men drew a gun. Dave Helm's defection had stopped them. Or, perhaps, they were men, like Helm, who didn't like the odds—if they were against the other man, • • * cocked ate head to on* side and watched Gil.
