"Of an crazy things the craziest is to own a ghost town." Daggett huddled his chin in •his coat collar. Greg eased the icar over the rough road. He was .aKtomshcd to hear his own voice ideclare, "Put it on a paying 'basis." 1 "But you've been saying there \is nothing to turn into money." "They haven't good soil," Greg conceded, "and no water. But they've got history, they've got romance. If people will read about it and go to the movies, Jwhy won't they come out here to ;see the Old West actually come llo life?" I Daggett looked at Greg in- Uently. Something was happen- (ing to the young man. I "Think of it!" Greg went on. j"Log cabins to stay in, gambling |i{ they want it. Girls in the old costumes in the dance hall, people decked out in cowboy outfits, bad men, a stagecoach to bring people from the train. Why, it (would have dude ranches beaten ia mile. Maybe on Saturday jnights we could stage a gun fight iin a gambling hall or a stage- icoach robbery. I tell you it can't jmiss. American folklore come to jlife." Daggett wondered whether iGrcg was as unaware as he ap- 'peared to be of his inadvertent •use of the word "we." 1 Rupert spoke up. "Folklore. 'All the time your advertisements hammer about what is American. Why not show people? Why not a television show in Dead Man's Gulch after we have fixed it up?" We again. The living eyes in Dafgctt's dead face blazed with excitement. Apparently, the thing was going to become a commu- ,nily enterprise. "You , mean, get a 'television here?'* Greg asked "Well, however you work it," Rupert said. "You suggested I crew out blankly. work out a television program for Grain's Canned Cqrnbread." Greg could not do two things at the same time. H* brought the car to a halt "You know, Rupert, maybe the dummy figure of a miner with a handlebar mustache. An old poster of Lillian Russell hung outside the opera house. There was a saloon with a brass rail, cuspidors, and sawdust on the floor. But the real triumph was the Last Chance Hotel which had been repaired, painted and furnished in the garish style of the period, with figured wallpaper, ilush hangings, beaded portiers, you've really got something.! chairs decorated with knobs and Anyhow, I could find out." "How?' Greg felt rather sheepish. "Horace Grain is my stepfather. I could put the idea up to him. Not that he would give much weight to anything that comes furbelows, marbletopped tables. The bedrooms upstairs were equipped with washbowls. Together they inspected the restaurant, which was equipped with long plank tables and benches and had a coal range from me "but" still, If the idea is i with a supply of fuel ready to use. Hannah took to it like a duck to water. She had grown good enough we might get somewhere with it." "You're a dark horse if I ever saw one!" Daggett exclaimed. He thought how much he had up with orie. Kirby helped them unload the food from the trailer a ad while [carried " 0 frorn"Greg's''"comrnen't' Hannah set about cooking din- ind how much light it threw ' ner— supper, Daggett reminded on the boy's uncertainty.

Set in a narrow valley shut in by ranges of mountains, it consisted of a single street with a dirt road, rickety boardwalks, Irame shacks, a half-dozen log cabins, a couple of false fronts and the Last Chance Hotel. Daggett's deputy had accomplished a great deal. As a result of a thorough and painstaking garrulous mood, pouring out reminiscences, getting more and more wrought up. Greg pushed back his chair. "That's all for tonight," he said authoritatively. He spoke so rarely that they were startled into attention. "What time for breakfast, Hannah?" "I'ii have it by 7:30," sh« promised. Kirby groaned. "There is DO such hour." Raggett, who could not manage Ihe stairs, was soon settled in a room Greg had fixed for him on the first floor of the hotel. There was a glint of humor in search, he had given the town . Daggett's eyes. "You know, the a certain ghostly life. Daggett pushed his nose flat against the window of the barbershop.
