CHAPTER 3 - STRANGERS AT BLACK CREEK

opened and Jeb Schultz came in. With him was another man, a burly fellow with thick grey hair and a pallid face. The two were talking as they entered but stopped as the doors swung closed behind them.
Ned watched them, returned the greeting Jeb called out and then found the slim Callahan at his elbow.
" You know Jeb, then, mister ?" asked Callahan.
" Not so as you'd notice. We met him up on the trail a while back." Then, casually, " I don't know the guy with him."
Callahan watched the two men now standing by the counter, watched them for a moment in silence. His near-black eyes were inscrutable. He might have been thinking pretty hard, Ned reckoned, or on the other hand not. It was impossible to tell.
" That's Spike Borden, owns the Block Diamond."
Ned said nothing, faked that he had no interest in either man. It was only a fake, however. Spike he knew nothing about except what Callahan had told him, but the fact that the man was with Jeb interested Ned-and Jake. They both noticed something that interested them still further. Spike and Jeb had been talking very quietly, muttering up at one end of the counter. Now another man moved towards them casually-and Jeb's hand came out and gripped Spike's arm. Whereupon Spike stopped talking.
It was a certainty that nobody else noticed, and that in any case if the tiny incident had been seen it could not have been considered significant. Jake and Ned, however, were trained to notice the unusual, trained to attach significance to the apparently casual. They both reckoned that Jeb Schultz had warned Spike to stop talking because the other guy was coming within earshot.
