big ranchers.
(Now go on with the story)
CHAPTER XII
Ellen was finding it difficult to
draw sharp lines between good and
bad. Jeff Brahd was an example.
Her interest in him was growing,
and with it a reluctance to condemn
him utterly. No doubt he was a
thief, but she guessed he stole not
for profit so much as for the thrill
of it. If rumor was true, he had
killed men in Texas and found it
wise to leave suddenly. Yet he
was human, with unsuspected loy
alties.
And there was Calhoun Terry.
Most of those living near Black
Butte would call him traitor because
he had changed sides. But was that
judgment final? If appearances
counted for anything, he was the
last man in the world to kill another
furtively from the brush or to hire a
substitute to do it.
Right and W’rong existed, of
course, yet there was a borderland
of conflict where the differences ran
thin. Ellen brought the more im
personal aspect of the difficulty to
her father. The time was after sup
per when he was reading one of Hor
ace Garvey’s editorials in the Ga
zette.
“Garvey takes a strong line about
these assassinations,” he said. “He
sure enough hits out right from the
shoulder. Just what he should do,
too. Tells the big ranches they can’t
sow the wind without reaping the
whirlwind.”
Ellen was silent for a minute. A
frown puckered her forehead. “Isn’t
there any way to stop this dreadful
bitterness?”
Lane Carey shook his grizzled
head. "Not so easy, honey. The big
cattle outfits want a wide-open free
range for their stock. They don’t
want the land plowed up or the coun
try along the creeks fenced. They
have grabbed what they can, one
way and another, by using their
riders as dummies for homestead
and pre-emption rights. But that
isn’t enough if they are going to run
herds as big as they have been do
ing. So there you are. If the little
fellows fence and plow the land the
big ranches can’t have it for range.
Cattle came here first. The large
concerns feel the nesters and home
steaders are interlopers, and they
have gone some farther than the law
allows to let them know it.”
“You think the Diamond Reverse
and the No, By Joe, with the
other big outfits, are to blame,
then?”
“Isn’t there any way to stop this
dreadful bitterness?”
“They made it mighty hard for
the small fry to earn a living in
these lean years when they quit em
ploying men who had places and
stock of their* own. But there is
another side to it. Rustlers have
been very active,__ and I’m afraid
MUL[QD,f
Al hE/5ervice
r- '"V*
a good many of the Tiestefs Have
helped themselves to calves to build
up their herds and to steers for
food when they got hard up.”
“So everybody is wrong and no
body is right,” she said.
He drew on the pipe for a few
moments to make sure it would not
go out. “I wouldn’t say that. You
might put it that there are conflict
ing rights hard to reconcile.”
Ellen brushed tobacco from his
coat. “You don’t see any hope of
peace, then?”
“I wish I did,” he said at last.
“But all the talk is the other way.
I heard that fellow Jack Turley say
at the dance he was going to carry a
rifle with him when he rode after
this. The men he was talking with
seemed to agree.”
"I don’t like the man,” Ellen cut
in, deflected from the main thought.
“He has been hanging around me a
little.”
“Not a pleasant fellow This
new ranchers’ and stockmen’s as
sociation the little men formed at
Round Top the other day will cer
tainly make trouble. The big
ranches aren’t going to let them
round up range stock and brand
whatever they please in a gather of
their own.”
Ellen kissed her father good night,
lit a lamp, and went upstairs to
her room. It was some time before
she could get to sleep. Into her
mind trooped thoughts connected
with ambushings and sudden death,
and even after she slipped into sleep
her dreams were wild and turbulent.
She saw Jeff Brand and Calhoun
Terry stalking each other in the
sage. A gun would crash, but before
her flying feet could take her to
the scene the protagonists had
changed. It was her father lying
wounded, and Jack Turley was
straddling his body rifle in hand.
Strangely enough, Ellen saw next
day at Black Butte all the four men
of whom she had dreamed. Terry
came up on the stage, on his way
back to the Diamond Reverse
from Denver. Brand and Turley
dropped into the post-office shortly
after the stage had arrived. The
ranch foreman was eating dinner
at the restaurant, but after he had
finished he strolled across to the
post-office to wait while the fresh
horses were being hitched.
He asked for his mail.’ Ellen made
a pretense of looking, though both
of them knew this was not the office
to which his letters came.
She came back to the window. “No
mail for you, Mr. Terry May I
see you a minute alone?”
He was surprised at her request,
but scarcely more than she was. For
it had been born of a sudden urgent
impulse.
“Of course,” he replied. “Here?
Her father came into the building.
“At the house—if you don’t mind.”
To Lane Carey she said: “Will you
take care of the mail a little while,
please?”
Carey glanced at her, at Terry,
and back at his daughter. “Why,
yes,” he agreed. He did not know
what was back of this, and he did
not quite like it.
Ellen spoke to Brand, including
Turley in a general bow to a couple
oi others present, bne could see
that Jeff was astonished at what
she was doing. The aDiamond Re
verse manager, she observed, had
walked through the group as though
oblivious of their presence.
Ellen stopped with Terry in front
of the porch, coming swiftly to what
was in her mind.
“Isn’t there any way, Mr. Terry,
of stopping all this killing that is
being done?” she asked. “Does it
have to go on, building up hate,
making this country an awful place
to live in?”
If he was moved by her indignant
appeal his immobile face gave no
evidence of it.
“I think the trouble will go on, in
one way or another, until stealing
cattle is stopped,” he said.
“You favor murder?” she cried.
“Did I say so?” he countered.
“You said—” She cut off her own
sentence. “It doesn’t matter what
you said. Yous friends are hiring
murder done. Can you deny it?”
Terry had not at first believed this.
But doubts of his associates had
seeped into his thinking.
The Diamond Reverse manager
replied to her question with another.
“Can you prwve it?”
“Of course I can’t.” Stormy-eyed,
she pressed the attack. “But you
know it’s true. I don’t know what
part you have in it, but your friends
are trying to stop theft by murder.”
“I don’t know any more about it
than you do,” he answered, anger
and obstinacy in his steel-blue eyes.
“If you want this trouble stopped,
go to your father and his friends. Get
them to persuade the rustlers to
move out. What do you expect? Do
you think we’ll let these scoundrels
steal wholesale from us and laugh in
our faces when we take them to
court? We are going to protect our
property.”
“By killing men from ambush?”
“No.” A dull flush of rage beat
into his face beneath the tan. “By
hanging known thieves by the neck
to trees when we have enough evi
dence. Is there anything else »you
would like to know, Miss Carey?”
She stood, very erect and proud.
“No, Mr. Terry. I know all I want
to know—about you.” Turning, she
walked into the house.
Calhoun Terry walked back to
ward the stage. It was in front of
the post-office. The horses were be
ing brought out to hitch. He saw
Jeff Brand move forward to meet
him.
“Like a word with you, Mr. Ter
ry,” he said.
Terry said nothing. There is some
times a force in silence more potent
than any speech.
nerves.
“You and yore crowd have teen
cutting a lot of mustard. Rubbing
out our friends without giving them
a chance for their white alley. Not
like rattlesnakes. They give warn
ing. I always did claim there was
vermin lower than a sidewinder.
Now I’ve found them.”
“Are you quite through?” the
ranch manager asked coldly.
“Not yet. I’m mentioning now that
we’U take a hand in this game. Two
can play it as well as one. From
now on there’s an open season on
Diamond Reverse men and on
those of the other big outfits. We’ll
be trying for the bosses, but when
we don’t find them handy a plain
lunkhead waddy will do. The brake’s
done bust. We’re off, and hell and
high water can’t stop us.”
“I wouldn’t talk that way if I
were you, Brand,” Terry advised
quietly.
“I’m talking. You’re listening.
This is a message to you and to all
the other damned rascals you’re
sleeping in a bed with. I’m mak
ing war talk. Understand?”
Calhoun Terry understood perfect
ly. The rustler was offering him a
chance to draw if he wished.
Terry shook his head. “No dice,
Brand. I don’t know who killed
these men, and I’m not going to
make myself responsible for it. I
won’t let you hang it on me by
forcing it as an issue. You can't
put me in the wrong that way.”
The cowboy jeered at him. “What
do you wear that gun beside you
for, Terry? Or don’t you draw it un
less a man has his back to you?”
They were close to the porch. Ter
ry knew the other two men could
hear every word Brand had said. He
felt a tumultuous boiling up of the
blood, the recklessness ready to
break out in him explosively.
Lane Carey came out on the
porch, a big weather-beaten West
erner who had fought his way
through the rough and tumble of
frontier life.
“Don’t be a fool, Jeff,” he said,
no excitement in his even voice.
“Can’t you see that Mr. Terry
doesn’t want to fight unless you goad
him to a showdown?”
“I see he doesn’t want to fight
whether I goad him or not,” Brand
answered.
Terry said coldly: “I choose my
own causes for a fight, and I won’t
be maneuvered into defending as
sassins. But I’m not overly patient
when bullies try to run over me.”
“Jeff isn’t a bully, Mr. Terry,”
the postmaster explained placidly.
“He’s some excited, and kinda went
off half-cocked. We can’t rightly
blame him for that, after his friends
have been drygulched. But since
you’re no party to these killings
nothing he has said applies to you.”
“You make it quite clear, Mr. Car
ey, that he couldn’t possibly have
meant me,” Terry said, with a thin,
ironic smile.
“That’s right, isn’t it, Jeff?” Car
ey persisted, his quiet urgency
crowding the cowboy toward some
withdrawal of his attack. “Since Mr.
Terry isn’t the guilty party, you
could not have meant him.”
Carey’s character and personality
gave him much influence in the
community. It was important for
the group to which Brand belonged
not to drive him into the camp of
the enemy.
Jeff grudgingly gave ground.
“What I said goes for the murder
ers, whoever they are.”
Terry followed the other passen
gers into the stage.
Turley laughed unpleasantly. “Mr.
Terry certainly took meek the worst
cussin’ out I ever heard.”
Headed for the post-office, Carey
stopped in his stride.
“Don’t make a mistake about Cal
houn Terry, boys. He’s game as
they come. He was giving Jeff
straight goods. Unless Cal Terry has
changed a lot from the young fellow
I used to know, he isn’t hiring any
body to rub out his enemies. If it’s
to be done, he’ll do it himself in the
open.”
CHAPTER XIII
For hours Calhoun Terry had been
riding across territory ranged by
stock of the Bartlett Land & Cattle
Company.
Ellison w’as at home.
His host got out a bottle and
pushed it toward Calhoun, who
waved it aside with a gesture al
most impatient.
“I’ve brought a message for you
from Jeff Brand,” he said.
“From Jeff Brand? What is that
scoundrel sending me a message
about?”
“He is serving notice that he and
his friends are going to make re
prisals for the rustlers who have
been murdered.” Terry’s gaze rest
ed steadily on the No, By Joe man
ager. “They are going after the
bosses, but if they can't get them,
riders for the big outfits will have to
do.”
“The nerve of him!” Ellison cried.
“It shows what this country has
come to when a known outlaw can
send such an impudent message to
honest men.”
“We didn’t need that to show us,”
Terry answered bluntly. “To have
three men shot down from ambush
in two w’eeks is evidence enough.”
Terry stopped, searching the oth
er’s gray countenance. “When out
fits throw in together to play the
same hand, Clint, it ought to be
played above-board for all of them
to see.”
The other man said, after a mo
ment’s hesitation, “Some things are
better not talked about. Cal.”
Terry had his answer. He had
found out what he had come to
learn. *You w’ill have to count me
out,” he teld the No, By Joe man
ager, and rose to go.
“Wait!” Ellison got up and paced
the floor, talking as he w’alked, stop
ping to press his points. “You’re too
soft, Cal. These men were thieves,
robbing us wholesale. But I’ll say
this, since you’re worried about it:
There won’t be any more of it.
In two weeks—three at the most—
we’ll be ready for the big drive.
Until then we’ll rest.”

Rural economists say, "American
farmers can ill afford to forget the
struggle which followed World War
No. 1, when price deflation began.
The immediate future appears to be
an opportune time to pay old debts
rather than to acquire new ones.
However, if it is known that money
must be spent to maintain the farm
plant, it seems advisable to make that
investment without further delay.
