The posse took up Turnow's trail one morning and followed it all day and then discovered that Turnow was following them. That he had them under surveillance with his deadly rifle was thoroughly believed by the men and they came out of the woods to report feeling that It was going to be a contest of hide and seek, in which a false step or a moment of carelessness meant death to the one making the blunder.
