Phil was not here, but it would be an even bet that soqner or later he would appear. At a far table Tex Darrow, Juarez Smith and Egan sat in a deep whispered conference. Tex looked up, caught sight of Ban and hi* dark eyes held level for • long second. He nodded slightly and listened to something that Juarez said. Dan started toward the long, empty bar but saw Starrett seated alone at a table across the room. Dan •walked up to Starrett's table. "Seen Phil?" h« asked In a low tone. Starrett looked up, eyes *tard, and his lips barely moved. "No." He gave hit attention to the top of the table. Dan pushed his hat back. "Mind company, Blaise?" "Leave it be, Dan. We had our say last night." Dan's [ace grew warm and he fell hot about the eyei. He turned and walked to toe bar, his back straight. . The front door opened and Dan «aw Starrett itraighten expectantly, pale eye* iharp and alert. Gene Iliatt stepped in. Starrctt's shoulders sagged and Dan could • see the disappointment In nil face. The tare* outlaw! looked up In covert alarm, then tettled again to their dlscunion. Dan watched Hlatt approach the bar and again he felt the extreme youth o( the outlaw. Too .bad, Dan thought, a kid like him '•would hit Uw rentfad* trail. said. "Getting colder," Hiatt "Be snowing before long." Dan read a loneliness in the man's eyes; it lurked like shadows far back in their depths. "Looks bad to the north. Winters are hard in the valley." "It's kind of like country I know," Hiatt said. "Only we didn't have big mountains like here." "Further south," Dan nodded, "maybe down toward Kansas?" Hiatt hesitated and a cloud touched his eyes, was gone again. "Down that way . . . maybe beyond. It makes no difference." He glanced at the mirror. "But I kind of like this country up here. It's big and I guess it's tough." He and Dan talked on, Hiatt asking questions, Don answering, feeling his dislike for the outlaw lessen. Hiatt brought his talk around to the town itself and then to the people in it. Soon he mentioned Ernine. • * • DAN looked sharply at him, his suspicions aroused again. But Hiatt didn't notice and he talked on. Dan atswered more and more* shortly as Hiatt again and again brought the talk around to Ernine. 'I don't know. You see a girl like her and you start dreaming about things . . . things that maybe won't come true but you still like to think of them, anyhow. She's sure a beautiful girl. Some man would be right proud of her some day." "F.rnine's too good for any of you crooked killers. She's clear out and beyond you, Hiatt." Dan itrode angrily to a nearby table. He dropped into a chair and saw Hiatt watching him with stricken eyes. The door opened suddenly, and Jack Bruhn itrode In. The whiskered outlaw. Denver, was at his httls. Tex Darrow straightened so suddenly that Dan knew the group had been discussing Bruhn. Juarez eased back in his chair, swarthy face inscrutable. Egan. edged away from the other two as though he feared the implication of association with them. Bruhn walked heavily to a table against the far wall and sat down. He placed his glass before him, shoved his hat back from his granite face. Starrett covertly eyed Bruhn, made a few sudden moves as though he intended to get up, and then changed his mind. As though he could read the man's mind, Dan knew without doubt that Starrett worked up courage to make his proposition to the outlaw leader. But something held him back, some last shred of character that had escaped the corrosive acid of his ambition, ban felt his own tension grow while Starrett made his silent struggle. STARRETT'S chair scraped back and he stood up. Dan himself straightened, eyes glued to the mirror. Starrett stood quite still, his jaw thrust forward, his fist clenched. He moved rapidly between the tables to come to a halt before Jack Bruhn. Dan saw everything magnified as though he watched the final, physical death of > friend. He felt a deep sense of defeat and despair, an though Starrett closed a door on all that was erf the past, making it worthless. Bruhn looked up and Starrett came close, bent over him, speaking low «nd rapidly. Bnihn was s u rp r is e d, and suspicious. It showed In the long fearchlng look he gave Starrett before he barely nodded and Starrett eagerly sat down. Dan watched, stunned. He) could not fully believe that Starrett had taken this final step. But Starrett leaned forward, eagerly, face alight. Bruhn listened stolidly, eyes now and then cutting to Stnrrett, but more often looking out across the room. At the other tabl«, Darrow >nd Egan watched curiously. (T« B* Continued) New! Used! HOUSING PROBLEM?
