CHAPTER 3 - STRANGERS AT BLACK CREEK

"The kid's missin' ? That'll be Rocky Bruce. Don't you worry, mister, his old man is like a woman fussin' around. The kid's O.K. I reckon. Maybe Callahan ain't got nothin' better to do than hold his pa's hand-sure, he's about the only guy in Black Creek with any time for Bruce."
Spike Borden broke in, his pallid face sneering.
" That's right, Bruce ain't got what it takes. I reckon I give him another six months an' he'll be clearin' out. It won't be any loss," he added.
Jeb nodded, turned and picked up his five-gallon from a chair behind him.
" I got to be goin'," he said. " I'll be seein' you, Spike."
He went, and after a little Spike departed, too. After that somebody said that the sheriff was riding ; and going to the window Jake and Ned saw four or five riders cantering down Main Street, making south. The guy in the lead was youngish, under thirty, with a straight figure and well-cut features. They learned that he was Rod Canter, the sheriff who had taken over at Black Creek a couple of years before. They didn't let on, but in fact they'd heard of Canter, one of Deakin's nominees brought down from near Phoenix. They had forgotten until now that he was here at Black Creek. They'd not met the guy but knew of him by reputation. Deakin thought a lot of him.
Others came into the saloon with word that the sheriff had been called in to ride to Indian Range. The kid Bruce was still missing and search was being made for him in the foothills. Canter had got together a small posse and was riding to the ranch.
Jake and Ned stayed on at the hotel. There wasn't, yet, anything else to do. Jake had wondered whether
