Vtvteo never stopped rocking M she looked cooteroptuoufliy up at the {outlaw. "Thart al yon ever kn«w, Ten L .. gunning down. It'H oafch up (with you someday." Dan eased op on the balfe of fcis feet, throwing a quick glance M Denver, wondering K he could Ibeat that outlaw's slug and reach ftex. Then Darrow took a deep breath. "Wei M It *>, BeJk . . . *te Itirae." He looked at Dan, anger iettU riding him. "Jack Bruhn ' rwants to see you and hel decide Tfhatll be done." Dan turned to tfaa door. Tex stepped aside as Dan approached and Denver pushed himself from the far wall. They walked silently to the street and turned to the main road. It was one of those deep moments of despair, when a man ' knows he has no way to turn and that all effort is useless. For the lime he doesn't ever care what l;:inpens to him, for that sccnis ni,important. He can only won- n-r \vhat has caused the disaster. So Dan's thoughts worried at . t! - problem. It had to bc'someone at the store, (or only they had knqwn about it. The Frazins might have talked to someone else, sajr •*• Md Bmhn. Theo Dso saw Ermort troubled faoa again a* they bad discussed tliear plane to overthrow the outlaws. Perhaps she bad been the oo«. He recalled how Gen* Hiatt had looked at bar. He remembered Hiatt's talk about her at th« bar, and began to wonder V Ernine's worry bad not only been for the safety of her father and brother but. Just tor Htatt's safe*!-, too. BRUHN UK at a Mfesa, «» Mat lined fee bar. Ten dropped the weapon on the table. He jerked his thumb at Dan. "He came for it. We was told the truth, Jack." There was a slight alar at the bar. Dan saw Pace Odtam lean negligently against the nil, shot glasa in his left hand. Hiatt stood at the far end, head down. "I suppose I ought to kH you," Bruhn said evenly. Darrow shifted his weight ta- patierflly. "Why wait, Jack?" Bruhn's massive head turned. "You're eager, Tex. Shoot 'em and be done with 'em. That's not always the answer. You'H find out . . . someday." M sounded strange to hear this big outlaw almost repeat Vivian. Dan glanced hastily at Tex, who stood biting his lip and scowling. Finally the man shrugged. "I'd know what I'd do." "But you're not me, Tex. 1 Bruhn said softly. "You ain't likely to be, either." He looked at Dan again and his granite iaw set. His voice lifted. "I'll give you credit for guts, Murdock, even though you have been a fool. Like I said, I should shoot you, but you've done us a favor." Tex exploded. "Favorl They'd have killed us or jailed us!" "That's right," Bruhn nodded. "We only did hall a job and this jasper woke us up. We're going aver every bouse in U)« town. We won't miss a one. We'll tear em apart, and when we're ihrough there won't be a chance of a hidden gun turning up again. Murdock woke us up ... I say that's a favor." Bruhn turned to Dan again. "1 return favors, Murdock, though I know you didnt mean any. But this will be the last... for you or anyone else in the town. The next time we'H snoot and you can depend on it." Bruhn stood up and his voict became even again. "Get out of my sight, Murdock. Tell your friends how things stand, and tell 'em that the whole town can be wiped out if I say the word. Ten 'em not to take the chance." • * • AS Brubo had prbmtoed, the outlaw's search wa* thorough. Phil and Dan arrived at the Preston home to find Paula alone. But they saw Vaus* and Egan unceremoniously enter George Gorton's shack while Tex Darrow came along the street and entered the Hike's nous* without m much u * knock. Phfl briefly told Paula what had happened. "I'm lorry the plan feB through, but I'm glad you'r* safe." Her eyes rested on Dan for a long moment and than on her father as she added, softly. "Glad for both of you." Within an hour Vause and Egan came, and they grinned crookedly at Phil as he opened the door. They saw Dan and chuckled. "Now there's the gent we got to watch. We'd better look real good here. "Do you have to tear the place apart?" "Sure," Vause answered, "plump apart. You ought to see the shack we just left. When the man wakes up from his drunk, he'll swear a tornado hit the place." "G o r t o n's drunk?" Dave asked. "Limber-jawed," Vause nodded. "No need to watch him .. . and he's got another full bottle of whisky to work on when he sleeps this one off. Too bad all of you gcnte ain't the same way. There'd be no trouble."
