someone unknown, by a shot in the back.

CHAPTER IV—Ellen Carey, daughter of
the postmaster, has recently returned from

Calhoun's ranch to ask him about his find
ing Tetlow’s body.
CHAPTER VIII—The sheriff reports to a
crowd of small ranchmen and rustlers Ter

another of the big ranches, drops in on Ter
ry to tell him of a plan to bring in former

vey to announce the sale of the Diamond
Reverse Ranch in small parcels.
CHAPTER XX—Ellen begins to think that
■he misunderstood Calhoun.

rustlers. She says it looks like the writing
of Jack Turley, supposedly a rustler himself.
CHAPTER XXII The ex-officers and
rangers from Texas arrive.
CHAPTER XXm—Jeff Brand rides up to
Turley’s cabin. In the presence of Dave
Morgan and Bill Herriott, he accuses Turley

Larry Richards with whom he plans a part
nership for the purchase of a small ranch
were on their way to Round Top on some
business when the Texas invaders mistaken
ly chase them into a cabin. It is they who
pull Jeff Brand into the house when he
is shot.
CHAPTER XXVIII—Jeff tells Terry and
Larry that he killed Turley. The invaders
finally discover Terry's identity but demand
to know who’fs the third man in the cabin.
Brand appears at the door with rifle pointed
at EH'®on.
(Now go on with the story)
Terry and Richards came into
Round Top after dark. As they
rode along the railroad tracks they
became aware of unusual activity
in the town. In the shadow of a load
ing chute they drew up. A man with
a rifle in his hands cantered past.
He shouted at them, “We aim to get
a second troop of the boys off in
side of an hour.” He did not wait
for an answer.
“This town has gone wild,” Larry
said. “I reckon maybe we’d better
scout around here a little before we
show ourselves. We’re not exactly
Cautiously they advanced toward
the town square. A light gleamed
from the back window of the Ga
zette office.
Calhoun Terry tapped on the win
dow and Horace Garvey slewed
round his parchment-like face.
“Who is it? What you want?”
he snapped.
The Diamond Reverse manager
tapped again. He did not want to
shout his name aloud. Garvey grunt
ed impatiently. He peered out of the
“Don’t you know I keep this back
door locked with piles of paper in
front of it?” he called out. “Who is
it anyhow? Go round to the front
Calhoun’s face came out of the
darkness close to the window.
“Goddlemighty!” Garvey explod
ed. “Haven’t you got any sense at
He began to haul bundles of paper
from in front of the door. Presently
he opened to let them in and led the
way to a dark corner back of a
“What’s the idea of coming to
Round Top after your friends have
pulled such a crazy outrage as this
invasion 72* he demanded. “Don’t
\RAI E"ce]
you know that this town is about
ready to tear you in two? Some of
the boys brought in Jeff Brand
wounded. All kinds of rumors are
going around. They say these Tex
ans have killed eight or ten settlers
in the hills back of Lee Hart’s
“We were among those present
when Jeff was wounded,” Larry told
the editor.
“You mean you were with this
bunch of Texas killers?”
“Not exactly with them,” Larry
explained. “They were trying to
collect our hides. Cal saved Brand’s
life—dragged him into the cabin aft
er he was wounded.”
Over his spectacles Garvey’s eyes
searched the face of the cowpunch
er. “Is this some kind of a story
you’re making up?” he inquired, his
thin voice sharp. “Brand was
brought in only ten minutes ago,
and I haven’t heard the facts yet.”
Larry told the story of their ad
ventures for the day. Garvey’s eyes
gleamed. “Good for you,” he said.
“Since you have broken with Ellison
and his crowd it ought to fix you up
with your old friends, as soon as I
can get the Gazette out with the
story. They will be glad to shake
hands and make up. But I think you
boys had better get out of town as
soon as you can. Folks don’t yet
know your new position.”
“We haven’t taken any new posi
tion,” Terry answered. “We stand
just where we always have. If we
catch any rustlers fooling with Dia
mond Reverse stock it will be
good night for them!”
“That’s all right, but I wouldn’t
talk that way round here yet a
“We came in to see a cattleman
about buying a bull for the new firm
of Richards & Terry,” said Terry.
“Probably he has been waiting for
us all day at the Holden House. We
wouldn’t think of going without a
confab with him.”
“Well, I’ll bring him down here.
I’ll not have you crossing the court
house square. Some fool would prob
ably take a crack at you.”
Terry discussed the matter of
sending telegrams to Washington to
induce the President to order troops
from Fort Garfield. Garvey admit
ted that he thought it would be a
good idea. Before morning, he told
them, four or five hundred armed
men would have left town to engage
the invaders, and as many more
would pour in from the ranch coun
try to join them.
“I’ll sign with you,” Garvey said.
Inside of thirty minutes the ap
peals for troops were on the way to
Washington, and the story was
spreading through the town that Cal
houn Terry had wired the President
to send government troops to* fight
with the big outfits and their hired
Texans against the settlers.
Garvey brought the cattleman to
the office from the hotel, and inside
of five minutes of his arrival Terry
and his new partner were the own
ers of an imported pedigreed Here
ford bull. The editor hovered over
them while the bargain was being
struck, like an anxious hen with one
“All right,” he sputtered. “Now
you’ve made your deal it’s time to
get out of town, Calhoun.”
But they had waited too long. An
irruption of angry citizens poured
into the office through the front door
to ask Garvey what he meant by
signing a telegram requesting that
troops be sent to help the invaders.
“It had Lane Carey’s name on it
too, and that scoundrel Terry’s,”
Lee Hart yelped.
Horace Garvey felt goose pimples
run down his back. The Diamond
Reverse men were in the shad
owed semi-darkness back of a press.
They had slipped out of sight as
the first of the group showed in
the doorway. But at any moment
they might be discovered.
“Well, now, I’ll explain that,” he
said nervously. “First off, Cal Terry
isn’t in with the big outfits any long
er. He has broken with them. I’m
writing an editorial now for the next
issue of the Gazette dealing with
that. Let me read it to you.”
“Read nothing,” Hart snarled.
“We’ve done asked you questions.
Answer them. And tell us how much
Ellison paid you to throw us down?”
“You’re getting this all wrong,
Lee,” the harassed editor insisted,
his voice shrill with excitement,
“Maybe you don’t know that Cal
saved Jeff Brand’s life today when
these Texans had him lying wound
ed on the ground.”
“Who told you that fairy tale?”
demanded a rough, unkempt nester
who had a Winchester in his hands.
“Why—ask any of the boys who
came down from Black Butte with
“Who? Which one? Put a name
to him.”
Garvey felt the sweat drops stand
ing on his forehead. He did not
know who had brought Brand to
“I didn’t get it direct,” he ad
mitted weakly. “But I’ve heard
talk, same as some of you must
have done.”
“Sure we’ve heard talk. We’ve
heard these hired killers have
rubbed out eight or ten of our friends
and that you are trying to get the
troops in to side with Ellison’s men
now they are getting in a jam.”
“Not to side with them,” Garvey
explained desperately. “To stop a
war where dozens of you boys will
be killed. I’m not throwing you
down but trying to stop a terrible
slaughter. Can’t you see where you
are heading for if you don’t keep
cool? We don’t want—”
“Cut it,” interrupted Hart harsh
ly. “W’e don’t want any more guff
from you. Howcome you to sign
Terry’s name on that telegram?
Talk, fellow.”
The nester with the Winchester in
his hands craned a long scrawny
neck forward. “Someone hiding in
the back of the room,” he an
nounced. The rifle leaped to his
shoulder. “Come outa there with
yore hands up, whoever you are.”
Terry and Richards came out, not
with their hands up.
The Diamond Reverse manager
answered the question Hart had put.
“My name was on that telegram
because I’m the man who sent it,”
he said quietly.
The men who had come to ques
tion Garvey stared at Terry in sur
prise out of angry, hostile eyes.
There was a shift in the half-circle
of men who fixed their attention on
Terry and Richards. Lee Hart had
been in the foreground, crowding
the editor with snarling questions.
Now he was back of the big nester
with the Winchester. Over the shoul
der of his shield he flung a trium
phant shout at his enemy.
“Got you at last, you damn fool!”
Looking round on the grim faces
of these men, all armed, most of
them ready to start out on a long
ride to exterminate their foes, Terry
guessed that never in his turbulent
life had he been in more deadly
“Larry and Horace are not in
this,” he said quietly. “Garvey has
not thrown you down. He’s on your
side still. Larry is a hired rider. He
is not responsible for what the Dia
mond Reverse has done. I’m the
“If Larry Richards claims he’s
not on yore side he keeps mighty
bad company,” jeered a red-headed
“I'm not claiming it, Red,” Larry
cut in coolly. “My chips are on the
table alongside those of Cal.”
Shrilly Garvey begged a chance to
talk. “For God’s sake, don’t make
a mistake, boys!” he cried. “Listen
to me. Calhoun Terry is our friend.
Take time to find out—”
“He’s your friend, but not ours,”
Hart interrupted savagely. "We
don’t need any more time. I say,
right now.”
A man had walked in the front
door and joined the group. He was
Sheriff Hart. One sweeping glance
was enough for him to size up the
“Don’t push on the reins, Lee,”
he said evenly. “These two men
are my prisoners.”
“How do you mean yore prison-

ers?” his brother blustered. “Elli
son’s warriors aren’t taking any
prisoners. That goes with us too.”
The hard, unwinking eyes in the
long-jawed, bony face of the sheriff
looked almost contemptuously at his
older brother. “Come out from back
of Houck if you have anything to say,
though it won’t be important any
how. I’m the law, and I’m arrest
ing these men. Don’t any of you get
the wrong idea about that.”
Terry knew that the sheriff had no
friendliness for him, but he had no
doubt that Nate Hart had interfered
to prevent him and Larry from be
ing killed.
“What are you arresting us for
doing?” he asked. It did not mat
ter what pretext was offered by the
officer, but as a matter of form
Calhoun made a protest. “We’re
peaceable citizens going about our
lawful business.”
“For conspiring to bring about an
armed insurrection in the territory,”
the officer answered.
“Hmp! We came here to buy a
registered bull from Mr. Murdoch
here,” Larry said. “We have done
bbught it. Now we’re ready to leave
and go back to the ranch. Looks to
me like these gents who were work
ing themselves up to bump us off
when you sashayed in are doing the
“No use littering up the jail with
them,” Lee Hart urged. “I say hang
them to a telegraph pole.”
The sheriff drew a revolver. “I
know all of you boys,” he said qui
etly. “I’d hate to have to kill any
of you, and I don’t want to be killed
myself. But I’m going to take these
men to jail. If anybody interferes
there will be trouble.”
The cowboy Red threw in the hand
for his group. “All right, Nate. If
you want these fellows, take ’em.
But be sure you don’t let ’em go.
We’ll be hearing from the hills soon
as to whether any of our friends
have been murdered. And if they
have, hell and high water can’t
keep us from busting into yore cala
boose and hanging these birds high
as Haman.”
Red and his allies followed the ar
rested men to the jail, to make sure
the sheriff did not release them.
They posted a guard at both the
rear and front doors. The leaders
adjourned to the Crystal Palace and
the Red Triangle to drum up senti
ment in favor of a lynching.
Calhoun put the matter bluntly to
the sheriff.

he asked. “Are you holding us here

“I’m holding you here for your

you would never get out of town
alive. You wouldn’t get fifty yards
from the jail door.” Impatiently he
added, “Why in hell did you come

“Why shouldn’t we come?” Terry
wanted to know. “We have nothing
to do with this crazy invasion. Elli

almost killed us. We rescued your
friend Jeff Brand.” The Diamond

ranches, of which Larry and I are
buying one. What have you against

two thousand dollars to Turley to
ambush their friends. You may
have been, at that. Even if you
have quarreled with Ellison since
then, that doesn’t prove a thing, and
far as that goes they only have your
own say-so that you’re not hock
deep in this invasion.” The sheriff
slanted a suspicious look at Terry.
“Looks like you are, when you get
off a telegram to the President ask
ing him to send troops to support
the big ranches in this business of
killing settlers.”
"That’s not what I asked him to
do,” the Diamond Reverse man
ager said. “Since the operator was
in such a hurry to give out a private
message he might at least have
done so correctly.”
Larry tossed a question at Hart.
“Let’s know where we’re at, sher
iff. Is it yore intention to ask us to
give up our guns and wait in a cell
for these galoots outside to break in
and send us west? Because we have
other views.”
Nate Hart was a harassed man.
“I didn’t get you in this jam, Lar
ry,” he said. “You didn’t have to
come here and drop a match in a
barrel of powder. I’m trying to
save you, but I’ll tell you straight
that if any bad news comes to town
the boys will attack the jail. It’s
only a flimsy shack. You know that.
I aim to protect you if I can, and
if it comes to a showdown I’ll give
you back your guns to help me
stand them off. More ffian that I
can’t promise.”
He added after a moment, “If I
could get a chance to let you slip
away I would.”
“Since we’re not prisoners you’d
better let us keep our guns,” Larry
suggested. “You might be where
you couldn’t get them back to us
when we have to have them.”
The sheriff recognized the force of
the argument. “All right,” he said.
“Keep them. I don’t need to tell
you if you begin shooting you are
