"You heard Johnny, didn't you? We're tired and we want lo go to b«l." / "Unhand me, you—you gorilla!" cried Peobody. "This is the l.nst r.lrnw. I shall not only lock you out of your room, I shall turn you over to the police." "On what charge?" snapped Johnny. "Defrauding an innkeeper," snarled Peaboriy, still struggling to get out of Sam's grip. "Let him go, Sam," Johnny said. Then facing Peabody: "Now, sec,hero, I'm getting sick nnd tired of hearing you harping on that subject. Just how much do you say we'owe you?" "You know very well. It's $30 nnd it might as well be—" "Thirty-six dollars," snapped Johnny. "I've got n good notion lo pay you nnd move out of this cniminy joint." "Oh, you're moving, all right," howled Peabody. "On the other hand," Johnny w;-nt on; "I think I'll just pay up and st;iy here." • "You're doing a lot of talking nl out paying." "I iilwny.s pay my debts. , . ." Ho readied Into his pocket and brought out n shcnf of bills. "Thirty-six dollars, did yni: sny?" KuooJy uulpcd as he saw the, money. "Wh-where did you get that?" "This small change? I've always got $36." "Then why didn't you pay your bill when it was due?" "Because you didn't ask me nice." Peabody skimmed through the bills, counting them. "Very well, you made it. But there isn't going to be another time. You'll pay each and every week hereafter, at the end of the week. I've got a good notion to make you pay in advance." "All I want is the same treatment us your other paying guests." Peabody opened his mouth to complain further, then thought better M it and went bqck behind his desk. Johnny and Sam rode upstairs. When the door was closed on them, Johnny said, "I was going to be decent about It and mail him the pawn ticket for his suit, but after the way he's treated us, I ought to tear it up!" He didn't, however. • * • HARD knuckles pounded the door of Room 821. Johnny rolled over In bed and looked at the door. The knuckles massaged the door panels once more. "Open up, Fletcher," cried a voice outside the door. S;im Cragg sat up in bed. "What's the idea, wnkln' a man in the middle of the night?" Johnny strode lo the door. He shot back the bolt and whipped open the door. J. J, Kilkenny, smiling nastily, stepped in. Sam shook his head, let out n roar nnd started around the bed to get at Kilkenny. The skip tracer coolly produced a snub-nosed revolver. "I'm not going lo skin my knuckles on you, (at boy," "Put down (hat dln»us nnd I'll twist you into a pruucL" *Uh-uh, M said Kilkenny. Ha reached back with his foot and shut the door. "Business before pleasure." "I've got no more business with you," snapped Johnny. "Oh yes, you have," sneered Kilkenny. ^Remember that money you collected on the skip was $22 short." "You forgot my $10 commission." "I applied that on your account." Kilkenny pointed to Sam Cragg with his revolver. "You've got no right to carry a gun," Johnny said angrily. "I got a license, that gives me a right." "Since when are they giving licenses to bill collectors?'' "People threaten me," smirked Kilkenny. "A man's got a right to defend himself. Like now—I got a claim against you birds and' if you make a pass at me, I onj shoot you. I'm only defending! myself." ! "I ain't sure that pea-shooter'd! even hurt me," said Sam Cragg | dourly. "Don't crowd your luck."! "I'll make this short and J sweet," snapped Kilkenny. "You! didn't give me all the money that Miss Cummings gave you. I hap-! pen to know that she gave you aj piggy bank full of small change.) I want it." j Johnny's eyes went involuntar-j ily to the dresser where the) limping goose bank had stood thej day before. Then he recalled \ having swept it into an open drawer the night before. • • • JOHNNY turned his back on the bill collector nnd headed for the dresser. As he passed Sam, he winked and sn'-l quickly in an undertone, "Ready!" He reached past Sam, pulled! open the dresser drawer and took' out the bronze limping goose bank. "Hero," he said to Kilkenny, ind tossed the bank lo him. He threw it to the right of Kilkenny, so the bill collector h '. to lunge for it with .he hand holding the gun. The bank struck the gun nnd for an in- stnnt Kilkenny tried lo juggle both the revolver and the limping goorc 1 .
