CHAPTER 1 - BLACK CREEK FEUD

he had been offered the job and had stuck to it ever since. Yet in all those ten years he had not before heard any boy say he would miss him.
" You're a decent kid, Rocky," he muttered. " Why, you make an old man feel he's done somethin' in the world after all. I never did much before, you know."
Rocky didn't know, though he had heard talk that Grant had been penniless when he came to Black Creek, the result of too much drinking, folk said. Maybe that was true, but he didn't drink now, not a spot. He had done well as schoolmaster, had justified the old sheriff's confidence in him. It had been Sheriff Beard who had insisted that Grant should take over the school. Now that Beard was dead there was a new sheriff, Rod Canter, from somewhere near Phoenix, the capital.
Rocky looked embarrassed at Grant's words. The latter spoke again.
" You an' Bud never hit it off, did you ?"
Rocky passed his hand across his forehead. No, they didn't hit it off, never had done. Nor had old man Bruce and Tuck Werner of the Bar-20.
" Maybe Tuck knows more than he should about the rustlin' up at Indian Range," muttered Rocky. " And Bud will be in with him."
At that Doc Grant's eyes narrowed behind the spectacles. He stared at Rocky, was about to speak but then saw that the boy's attention had been distracted. He was staring past the schoolmaster, staring at the trail outside the yard. The Doc swung round and caught a glimpse of a lithe, brown figure moving silently along the trail. The Doc recognised the guyand so did Rocky.
" Pasco," muttered Grant.
