CHAPTER 5 - FOOTHILL TRAIL

Rod talked all right, giving Bill the low-down.
Most of it Bill knew already, but only in broad outline. Rod filled in some of the details, talking as he always did incisively, his voice clipped. Deakin thought a lot of Rod, even though he was young to be a sheriff. Bill reckoned that the guy was efficient all right. That opinion was not affected by the fact that Rod had failed to get a lead to who was making trouble for Indian Range. The ranger knew from his own experience that in a community such as Black Creek, set in wild, broken country, conditions were very difficult. If those who were rustling cattle and generally making trouble were careful-as evidently they had been-the sheriff's task was not easy.
" Reckon some folk think I've been lyin' down on this," said Rod, " but that ain't true. What I don't get is why these guys are layin' for Indian Range. The beasts ain't worth rustlin', not enough of 'em, and those there are don't grade high. But there's been other trouble besides rustlin', trouble that don't make sense-poison put in the springs an' cash stolen."
Bill grunted. What about Tuck Werner of the Bar-20 ? He'd heard, he said, that Tuck didn't hit it off with old man Bruce.
" Sure, but that's not proof he's hittin' at him this way. I've been watchin' Tuck-I've got nothin' on him."
They reached the ranch-house, dilapidated and weather-beaten, evidently far from prosperous. The interior, the furnishings and the equipment bore out this. Indian Range wasn't by any means a rancher's dream.
Rocky was put to bed, and recovered sufficiently to talk. An hour after reaching the ranch Bill had the whole picture pretty well clear-the picture so far as
