While the gang was deliberating n the final disposition of the buggy the owner quietly crawled out With the gun in his hand, he suddenly Ftartled the crowd by commanding them to throw up their hands. "I sure enjoyed being pulled out here felows," he said, "in fact I would like to be pu'led back." With thewe words he playfully raised his gun and took a seat in the buggy. "Let's go," he said sweetly. Meekly the gang began pulling. It was a lot harder pull going back.
