Fugger sends his henchman, Bill Bleek, to commit vandalism on Miller's newspaper. We a Tancred, known In Sage City as John §al< ley, wrecks Fugger's store Iri return. The result Is a terrific fist battle between Tancred and feleek and for the first time Bleek is beaten. Undismayed, the unscrupulous Fugger sends Laura Vcsscr. pretty clerk In his store, to bring Tancccd to him. Laura is an old friend of Taiicred's and Is the bnly person in Sage City who knows his real name is not John Bailey. XVI Tancred took off his shop apron and x.n't on his coat. He left the shop and walked to Fugfier's store. "I got your message," he told Jacob Fugger. "Oh, Bailey," growled Fugger. "Mow are you" Tancred made a small, impatient gesture, lo dismiss the trivialities and to indicate that Fugger should get down to the subject. "They tell me you're a .good man, Bailey," Fugger said. "You dirln't send for me just to tell me that." "in a way I did," replied Fugger. "I like a good man. I like to' have him on my side." "I'm working for Luke Miller." "How much is he paying you" "Enough." "T doubt that. He can't afford t. He's got $182 in the bank and he still owes over $000 on his r.hop equipment. His gross income last month was $314.50." 'You seem' to know quite a lot of Mr. Miller's affairs." I make it my business to know everything. If Miller's paying you $25 a week, he's drawing down shooter al a board target, fully a hundred feet away. He hit the board each time. "Put the target-back a piece," he said. A cowboy sprang for his horse standing nearby and galloped it to the target. Swinging down low on the right side of his horse, he grabbed up the board and carried it back another hundred feet or so. Then he stopped his horse and waved the board. "Far enough" he yelled. The man in the Prince Albert gestured the horseman back. "More!" he called.

The tall man in the Princo Albert nodded. "Try it thcrel" ho called. A murmur went up. "Three hundred yards!" Kinnaird nudged Tancred. "Watch this, now," The Texas men clamored around the tall man in the Prince Albert. "Nobody can hit a target that sizo with a revolver," shouted one of them." "They probably can't—down in Texas," retorted the tall man. "Any Texan can beat any Yank at anything!" howled an irate cowboy. The tall man pointed at tha speaker. ''Five dollars says you can't hit that target." "Five dollars says I cnn if yov can," promptly retorted HIP cow boy. "That's a bet!" "And now," Kinnaird whispered to Tancred, "you'll have a chance to see Mr. Wild Bill Hickok. . "Hickok!" exclaimed Tancred. "The one and only.

Wild Bill suddenly thrust out -a long-barreled revolver and without seeming to aim, fired. The cowboy on Ins horse, who had pulled over to • one side, galloyjed up to the .target.

"I made you an offer. I now withdraw that offer. Good night, Mr. Bailey!" Sunday morning was quiet. Tancred was awake before daybreak, jut remained in the print shop until almost 8. Then he had breakfast nt he Bon Ton Cafe and stood for a ittlo while outside the restaurant. The street was virtually deserted. A church bell tolled north of the Kansas Western tracks and Tanked blinked.

It wns like entering another world, He passed the church, a small, K-ray-pninted frame building. So- oerly dressed men and women who wore wearing fine dresses were entering the building. About 10:30 he walked to the Bon Ton Cafe and hart a cup of coffee. When he came out Lee Kinnaird hailed him from across the street. 'Doing anything sporial" Kinnaird risked as ho cnrno up. "As a matter of fact, I'm having a hard time doing nothing." • Then walk wilh me down there." He pointed to the south of (own and Tancved. whose ear,-, were becoming atluned to almost perpetual gunfire, realized that (here was shooting out beyond the limits of Sage City. "There's always a bunch ul' people out there on Sundays doing target shooting," said Kinnaird. "and now with the Texas men here we might see some fancy riding and roping." They walked past the lust house on the street to a stretch of fiat prairie-land, where a dozen .or more Texas men were showing off their skill with horses and the rawhide riatas they hud brought with them. Off to one side another group of Tcxans were shooting at targets set up. Among the Texans were a few Northerners. As Kinnaird and Tangred came up, one of the latter, a man WVW'- ing a Piince Albert and a bio- carted vest, was emptying a s>is : Hparcnding drew his gun and took careful aim at' the distant target. He fired and .all around him could see a splinter fly from the board. Wild Bill Hickok took a $5 gold piece from his 'pocket and handed it lo Harpendine. "You shoot very well, stranger." "Good enough," said Harpen- 'ding. He tossed UIR coin to his lellow Texan, Hodge. "Carp to move the target back another hundred' yards" asked Hickok. "I can hit any target you can hit," snapped Harpending. But he did not look happy about it. The target was moved back another hundred yards or so. Wild Bill Hickok smiled challengingly at Harpending. "A small wager" "Now it comes," said Lee Kinnaird to Tancred. "I saw him do this in Abilene six years ago. Only then he fired almost 000 yards The target was a little larger, bu I'doubt if there's another man in the entire west who can hit anj target nt all at (100 yards." "Wasn't there a man namoc Bartles who shot rings ' aroum Hickok in a match during the war" Tancred asked. Kinnairrt looked sharply at Tan creel. "You're pretty well postec on shooters." Tancred m a d e no reply. The men had crowded around Will Bill Hickok, making wagers will him. He squared off, scarcely too! move aim than he had previouslj incl fired.

J?oy and Earle, the feuding sons of baseball's elder statesman, 01-year-old Connie, Sr., hinted yesterday at the third offer and even suggested they might bury the haichet and accept it. This is reported to be a local "angel" who would buy Connie's 42 per cont of the stock for $600.000 and thou invest two million rebuilding the team, fixing up the park and paying off some pressing debts. In this setup both brothers would re-main in the front office, retaining their controlling !>3 per cent of the stock.

Harry Sylk, heading a local group which has offered two and a half million for the franchise—but wants no part of Muck Control-says his is Iho only local offer and that the Macks are dreaming out loud with the ost recent repor.t Syllc would like to bring in Ducky Miracles in Baseball Are Possible By BEN PHLEGAR { Associated Press Sports Writer The "History of the 1951 Pennant Knee" bcerimj required reading for the Milwaukee Braves today. Written into the annals of the National Least's by tiie New York Giants, this remarkable record provides convincing and recent proof that baseball miracles are possible. Although firmly believ-in.-* they < are the new team of destiny,, the Braves could USD n little solid encouragement. They lost two cut of. thrc games to St. LjuU, including a 2-1 10 iniug thriller yesterday, nncl now trail Now York by a[i lengths. • Even now, however, tiny are much better off than the Giants were at this stage th.veo seasons ago. Milwaukee still could do il all alone, without depending on a col- Ilapse by either the Giants or ' Brooklyn. It eculd work this way. The Braves have five games left with the Giants. They've lost five more than the Giants. A swep o£ the five would cancel out the New York lead. The Braves and Brooklyn play six more times and the Braves have lost only two more than the Dodgers. In 1951 the Giants trailed Brooklyn by seven games as late as Sept. 1. They ware still six games behind in the losing column on Sept. 20. Only a complete Dodger collaspc in the final week paved the way to the playoff. The Giants, apparently back in good health after a critical slump, won their third in, a row, 5-0 over Philadelphia. Brooklyn again had to hustle for a 7-5 verdict over the hustling Pittsburgh Pirates. Cincinati look two from Chicago, 7-0 and 6-3.
