He turned Paula over to Ernine and ran back to the saloon, callin? Phil and Gen* to the door. He explained what had happened. Hiatt shook his bead and Phil looked grave. ; "He'll hole up at the station [where every gun and round of (ammunition has been stored." 1 "We've got to get him, Phil. (He's a mad dog." Dan considered rthe station, eyes distant and tthoughtful. "Phil, you and Gene Icircle the store and work toward 'Ihe station from the Spade !Road." They argued but Dan beat •them down. Dan hitched at his •belt and started down the street •toward the station. There was no sign of life, but tDan knew that Pace must he [watching him. Over the expanse |of snow, saw Phil and Hiatt 'working their way to tho road. LDan lifted the gun, slammed a 'bullet through one of the windows. He instantly threw him- .self to one side. A double flash of fire answered him and the bullets cut the air where he had just stood. At that moment, Phil's gun boomed and Dan heard the tinkle of glass. He came up on the balls of his feet and realized that someone rushed down on him from the right. He jerked with surprise when he saw Vivian running toward him. "Get back!" he yelled and marie frantic signals to her. She halted, not three yards from him. Her oyes softened and deepened as she looked at him, "I "worried about you, Dan. I . . . don't want you hurt." It struck him like n physical blow that this woman wai in -love with him. Dan lifted himself to call toward the statldn. ^ "Pact! PK* listen to •£! Senio, h* There's a woman here. Hold your fire until she can get away." The slender killer replied instantly, Dan's voice locating his target for him. The slugs plowed into the non-resisting snow, the first one close, whipping by Dan's shoulder, the other two going a little higher. Dan had thrown himself fiat and now he turned to look at Vivian. She lay crouched in the snow, curled, head down. Her head rolled sideways as he grabbed her shoulder and Dan turned her over, holding his breath. That first slug had come close to him had caught Vivian just at the base of the throat and ranged downward. She was dead. , Dan came to his feet and charged the station in a crouching run. face contorted, eyes ablaze. He reached the door and his shouldor slammed the portal back. Ho instantly threw himself down and to one side. He saw Pace at one of the far windows. The man whirled and thit'.v flame at D^n.. Through the haze of smoke Dan saw the pale eyes alight with a strange, mad glee, the moist lips unnaturally red. twisted in a devil's smile. Something struck Dan with the force of a battering ram and he seemed no longer to have a side. Everything was in a strange, detached slow motion. He felt his hand lift the gun, saw the muzzle come up. He saw the long spit of red flame lance from the barrel, lance again. He saw Piice come up on his toes, saw the man's gun belch flame toward the ceiling. Thon Pace slowly pivoted on the balls of his feet, seemed to be reaching high for something. As a swirling darkness nishcd pvpr Dan, he saw Pace pitch forward. * * * DAN opened his eyes and stared about him in disbelief. He was back in the Preston bedroom. Doc Langer appeared and fussed over Dan while Paula and Phil stood fearfully watching. "How did I get here?" "Gene and I brought you," Phil answered. "Paula's been nursing you." "But it's onJy been a little while—" "Five days a little while?" Doc Langer asked, straightening. "It was touch and go with you, cowboy. Paula, give him the news and then both of you sleep the rest of the day." Phil went out of the room with the doctor, Paula pulled a chair up beside the bed, sat down and took Dan's hand. Pace was dead, she told him, and so was Juarez, though Dan knew that. Denver, Vaiise and Egan were under heavy guard awaiting the sheriff who would come down from the county seat now that the roads were passable. Shorty Ratner had. died just yesterday. Gene Hiatt also waited for the sheriff to turn over the stolen money, and everyone in town would do all they could to help the young man become a good citizen again. Gene might serve a short term but he had a home here once he returned. Crane was recovering nicely and Phil came back in the room then and looked gravely at Dan, "Vivian McLear is buried, Dan . . . one more cruel ;nd useless killing added to all the rest. Ava Hikes has come to her senses and she runs the Wyoming." "What about Blaise?* 1 Phil made a slight gesture. "I don't know, Dan. The whole town knows what he planned to do. I figure he'll sell Star before very long. There's no one he can face any more." He looked at his daughter and his face softened. "Rut you've both had enough talk. I want you back on your feet, Dan, as soon as you can make it. The you start learning the lumber business, the sooner I can figure on taking it easy." 'T,umber business!" Dan's eyes widened. Phil lau&hed. "Sure, lumber business. Think my future son-in-l.ivv would do anything else?" THE END FREE COW0OVS ,.„. „„.. „.^J*, , He isn't «vert eating with his homework!
