Blvtheville Phone 3-3391 Joiner Phone 2421 EXC1USIE EXAMPLE Bacon's Castle, near Smithfield, Vtiginia, is said to be the only true example of Jacobean architecture in America. It was built in 1655.

Hiatt opened his co*t and putted out a belt and bolstered fun, dropped it on the ak. "There'i your ^un," he said. Ernine looked ai him as though tie had returped from the dead, then she turned away, her eyes BiisUng, *TD«nvcT?* Dan asked. Hiatt '•hrugged. '* Tied up tight and gagged, locked in tb* feed room." Hiatt looked solemnly around at them. *"Now I've shown my brand to Wwm and there's DO turning back lor ttw. If you Jose, I lose." Dao picked up the gun and Phil gribbed it, eyes bleak. "I figure this is min«, considering Paula." There were just three outlaws tett and three men here, though gun speed lay with the killers. pan spoke briefly, planning a •urprtse that would even the odds. Hiatt left the store and walked directly to the saloon. Dan and Phil left by the back way, walked back to the street, keeping the building between thenuelvec and the saloon. They hurriedly crossed the street, cut around the empty stable corral and came 1o the Wyoming Bar 'from the ,J*a;. He first saw Hiatt and could plainly hear the man's voice. * Juarez, Egan and Vause bad their full attention on Gene, who f forcefully talked about making • Pace divide the bank loot. Egan and Vause looked eager, nodded now and then. Juarez frowned uncertainly. Hiatt continued to tnlk and his eyes lifted beyond the outlaws to the door. He saw . * "There's one argument Pace J will listen to/' h* said. He drew jhls gun without ftuspicion and it. "This la ik" Dan eased out behind the bar and Phil followed him. Hiatt's gun suddenly leveled as Dan spoke quietly behind the three outlaws. "Lift 'em, gents." The three men jerked in stunned surprise and Juarez half turned to look at Dan's gun held on his belt buckle. "Dehorn "em," said Dan. Juarez was the most dangerous of the three and Dan watched him closely. Egan, knowing that capture would mean an eventual hangman's rope, made a desperate and deadly bid. Phil moved to obey Dan. For a brief second his gun did not cover Egan and the outlaws hand blurred to his holster. The quick motion swung Dan's eyes momentarily toward him, and Juarez moved with the speed of a striking snake. * * • DAN heard the shattering roar of guns and smoke billowed be- twecri him and the swarthy face of the breed. He heard the snarling whistle of Jaurez's slug past his head and then his own finger tightened on the trigger. Someone screamed nearby but Dan WAS hardly aware of'it. He fired again at the breed, dimly perceived in the cloud of smoke. Then he could no longer se« Juarez and realized the man had dropped behind the bar. He whipped about, lunging toward the end of the bar to circle it but Phil caught him. "Dan! Danl It's over!" He stared at Phil and realized that the guns had stopped. The smoke drifted in long streamers toward the front door, eddying about Hiatt and Vause, who leaned against the bar, tightly gripping his right arm just above the elbow. Egan had disappeared and Dan's eyea met Gene's. "Juarez?" Dan asked. Hiatt's eye* cut to the floor. "He took a bullet in his mouth, Dan,, lie ovw. Vau« has a brok- n arm and Phil's slug clippea Igan's skull and he'll sleep long enough for us to hogtie him." Only seconds had passed and yet the action had been so deadly fast that it seemed a long time since Egan had made his desperate bid for freedom. Jaurez was dead and Egan lay sprawled in the sa\vdust, a shallow bleeding wound along his skull. Dan felt a wave of relief sweep over him. He looked in quiet triumph at Phil and Hiatt, then at the outlaws. "I'll get Pace and bring him over, then we can collect Denver. They'll have heard the shooting at the store. I'll tell them everything's all right." He looked at Hiatt. "Or maybe you'd rather tell 'em." Gene blushed, grinned crookedly. "I'm needed here but . . Ernine should know so tell her right away." * • * DAN went to the store, to find Bob and his sister already standing out on the porch, torn by anxiety. He told them what had happened and Ernine's dark eyes came alight again. He turned to Bob, telling him to get Larry Teter and Clay Majors and go to the saloon, picking up Denver while they were at it. Bob hurried off and Ban turned to Ernine. "Gene's not touched. He's • good man." "The best," she said quietly. She looked toward the saloon. "Tell him I'm waiting, Dan." Dan turned and just then saw Paula running toward him. He jumped off the porch to meet her and she fell into his arms. "Pace?" he demanded. She gasped (or breath. "He tricked me, Dan. He came to right after you left. He acted as though he knew he was beaten, even talked about it. He asked me to- get tobacco from his shirt pocket so he could have a smoke." She looked up at him, fearful and also ashamed of herself. "I ... felt sorry, I guess. I bent over him to get it. He moved so fast, Dan! He doubled up and kicked mb in the stomach. I fainted. When I woke up, he wa* gone." (To Be ( 'J B-2J T. M. », r u. 5.
