But it was cozy in the ijtitchen. Dan still ached from 'the fight but now he hardly no- •iiced it. Phil and Paula had ac- icepted his version of the fight •nd it was Starrett who had been injected from the circle • of their !*ust. "•• t "Let's put it this way, Dan.

"Alter that, what jwill happen?" Dan had no an- liwer. » After two steady days of how!.frig winds and blinding snow, •Jack Bruhn wondered the same thing. He walked to the window (if the stage station and tried to peer through the thick, blowing Ihists to- get some glimpse of the Squaw Creek bridge a Jew yavds Sway. The world was nothing 'Hut white, white that swirled and fenced through the air, that piled igainst .the building, nothing but Wind that shrieked and howled ground the cornices and shook the window. * There were six men here, &ught during the night by the blizzard and unable to leave Si".:e.

He glanced at the windows, seeing only the blinding white of snow beyond, sighed and stretched out. His thoughts moved ponderously and at last he drifted into a half sleep. Something awakened him. His eyes snapped open and he felt a tension in the room, a tingle of alarm along his nerves. He slow- iy turned his head to And that Darrow had irritably paced to the window and frowned out on the white world. The man's voice was harsh. "When will thig thing end? I'm tired of sitting her« with nothing to do." "fell the blizzard, Tex," Denver said with a chuckle and then his smile vanished when ^ ftx whirled around,' face tight. "Now that's funny, ain't it?" Tex demanded. Denver eyed him cautiously. Pace turned hi« head to watch Tex, and Jack wished he could read the man's expression. Darrow paced to the stove, fiddled there a moment. His eyes cut about the room, rested on the saddlebags. , •There's nothing else to do. We might m well divide the loot." • • * JACK did not allow Ms turbulent thoughts to show on his face or in his voice. He asked, lazily, "Now?" Tex strode to him and halted a foot or so away. "Any objections? Any reason why we can't have the dincro today as well as tomorrow or next week?" Juarez iwung about. Denver and Ggan watched, tense and silent. They were afraid of this and yet Jack could see that they would also like their than of toe money. Pace slowly sat up, pulling in his lejs and drooping his armt ev«r them.

Tex and Juarez want trouble, but what about the others? "No objections, I guess," he said evenly. He sat up and looked around at the rest, questioning their will, his gray eyes sharp and probing. Stall, he thought, watch 'em and you'll know whether to call this bluff or not. "Some of us ain't here, though." "They'll get their share," Tex snapped. Jack sighed and pulled the saddlebags to his blanket. "First thing, we got to agree on a split." Tex made an impatient gesture. "Even-steven all around. That's fine with me." * *. • DENVER had arisen. Jack read the bearded face, the suspicioui way Jfe watched Tex, and he thought, one for me. Bruhn swiftly judged the' situation. Denver could handle Jaurez. he could match Tex.. It 'would be over before Vause could make up his mind, but there wai itill Pace, of course. "Even all around," Jack said evelly. "That means nine ways." "Eight," Tex snapped. "Shorty's n a bad way. Even if he don't die, he won't be ready to ride by the time we leave town. Eight wayi. Jack." Ai Bruhn had expected, the excuse for the play would be Shorty. He watched Darrow's can face, aware that Juarez had now edged to one «ide, but Denser had also half turned with the areed. Vause looked from Tex to Tack and back to Tex again, obviously surprised at the quick ievelopmenU and very much worried. Pace had not moved. Tack shrugged, his jaw harden- nn. "We count Shorty in, Tex. We lon't leave this town until Shorty is either dead or riding 3Ut with us. Nine ways . . . take t or leave it." Darrow's black eye« slowly narrowed and his nostrils pinched. He gathered himself for he showdown.
