Excerpt: ...justice. We'll look after your interests. You know some of the posse might be coming back, askin' fool questions. Pull your freight up to the Bar Cross till we send for you.' 'Well-if you think Pringle isn't running any risks I'll go.' 'We'll take care of Pringle. Guess we'll make him sheriff next fall, maybe-just to keep Anastacio in his place. Drift!' 'No sheriffin' for mine, thanks. Contracting is my line. Subcontracting!' 'So long, boys! You know what I'd like to say. You gave me a square deal, you three chaps,' said Foy.

'Watch Foy get over the ground!' said Anastacio. 'He'll break his neck before he gets down. I don't blame him. He's nearly down. Look the other way, boys!'
