3?/£¥ THERAN6B WITH THE 

TeNpet*fooT'*£XT issue: 



VOUNG TED PETERS was 

•*" afraid of everything. He'd always 
been a sickly boy, shielded from all 
danger. And now, at twenty, he was up 
against the greatest problem of his career, 
and lacking the courage and strength 
with which to meet it! 

That problem was Concho McCoy, 
one of the most deadly killers of the 
west. He and his men had but recently 
invaded the San Morales Valley— and 
coincident with their coming, a mysterious 
wave of violence had broken out. Cat- 
tie were being run off, cowpunchers am- 
bushed, ranches burned. And shortly 
thereafter, McCoy would appear at the 
stricken ranches, alone, and offer to buy 
them out for a song. Nobody could prove 
that he was behind the terror, but the 
ranchers were selling out — because too 
often, when they didn't, there was fur- 
ther violence. Better to sell out while 
they still had something to sell, they fig- 
ured, and gave in. And now McCoy was 
at the Peters Ranch, offering a pittance 
for a fine spread! "Don't sell, pop,'* 
Ted pleaded. "Yuh cant let the place 
go for what he's offerin'! 

Then it was as if lightning had struck. 
McCoy's brawny fist shot forth, con- 
necting squarely, and poor Ted crashed 
to the floor. "I don't like buttinskis,** 
the badman said coldly. Then, turning 
to the boy's father, he growled, "That'll 
teach yuh 1 mean business! I'll give yuh 
plenty o' time to make up yore mind — 
but remember, the pnce'll be lower when 
yuh do decide to sell!" 

That was the way McCoy worked. 



* • *» 



He left, and Mr Peters helped Ted to 
his feet. The old man was bitter. "I'm 
too old to fight 'im, 9 * he mumbled, "and 
my son's a weakling!" There it was 
again — the old insult.' A weakling ! 
Stumbling to his room, Ted spent an un- 
happy hour, face to face with the truth. 
In a country of hard-fighting men, what 
did he have with which to make his way > 
A body lacking strength, a heart lack- 
ing courage. No use dodging the issue 
— he was nothing but a puny coward! 
But did he always have to be one? 
Couldn't he change) It was a brand-new 
idea for Ted Peters, an idea which 
frightened him by its very daring. Tak- 
ing a deep breath, he opened a cabinet, 
and extracted from it a cartridge belt 
and holstered pistol. 

The following morning Ted rode out 
on the range, alone. And the hills echoed 
to constant gunfire, as, selecting his tar- 
gets, he set about perfecting his aim. It 
was just the beginning of an ambitious 
schedule he'd set for himself. From there 
he went on practicing a fast draw — and, 
even more important, developing his 
strength. Day after day he toiled and 
sweated, until the arduous training bore 
dividends. Bullets plunked straight to 
their mark as his shooting-eye gained new 

■ 

keenness. His draw became a thing of 
lightning speed. But best of all was the 
change in his bodily strength. Constant 
exercise filled out his frame, and supple 
muscles grew and hardened. 

This was the nen; Ted Peters, strong 
and resolute. It had taken time, during 
which Concho McCoy had not been idle, 



either His marauding band had con- 
tinued its evil work, until rancher after 
rancher was only too glad to sell out to 
him. And still there was no evidence 
against him, no proof that he was the 
man behind the reign of terror which was 
sweeping the San Morales Valley. It 
was only a matter of time before he call- 
ed on the Peter* ranch again, and un- 
fortunately, he picked*a time when, only 
old Mr. Peters was at home. Ted re- 
turned from his daily exercises to. find 
the burly McCoy, a sneer on his face, 
folding a deed which the frightened old 
man had just signed. "I — I've sold the 
ranch, boy,** he said weakly. "He start- 
ed talkin' about how easy fires start in 
places like this, an* I knew I was licked! 
$500 I got— fer a $10,000 spread!'* 

Ted could feel himself turning white. 
It was the moment of decision! He had 
built his body — but had he built his cour- 
age equally? Could he steel himself to 
face the most dangerous desperado in 
Nevada? Momentary fears rose to plague 
him, but he forced them down as he 
moved slowly towards McCoy. "We're 
returnin* that money.** he breathed. "An* 
yuh'rc returnin* the deed — unless it's 
trouble yuh're lookin* fer!" 

"Trouble?" jeered McCoy. "Who 
from, sonny-boy — yuh? 1*11 fix yuh like 
I did the last time! An' nobody else kin 
make trouble fer me, either. Yuh can't 
hdok me up with all this ruckus around 
the valley P 

Ted thought fast, and came up with 
a monumental bluff. "That's what yuh 
think," he retorted. "One of yore men 
was drunk last night, an* spilled the 
whole setup to me 1 1 got enough to hang 
yuh. an* when I tell the sheriff—" 

The ruse worked — too well! "Mebbe 
yuh*re lymY* growled McCoy, "but I , 



ain't takin' no chances!" It happened un- 
expectedly then. A gun roared, and Ted 
felt a burning sensation m his shoulder. 
He was going down — the killer was pre- 
paring for a finishing shot! But even be- 
fore his body hit the flooi, Ted was 
already in action. In one fast, fluid mo- 

v 

tion, he drew and fired. Long hours of , 
practice paid off as a bullet crashed 
squarely thrpugh the outlaw's gun-arm! 

Neither man was finished, and Mc- 
Coy, for one, was unprepared for what 
happened next. Ted, the former weak- 
ling, came up from the floor like a fight- 
ing cyclone! He had only one arm to 
fight with — but so did McCoy! It was 
an epic battle which required all of the 
youngster's newly-trained muscles. Time 
and again the badman sent him crashing 
back — but time after time he returned to 
the attack, fighting with the ferocity of 
an angered wildcat ! Finally McCoy 
reeled before a terrific blow to the pit 
of the stomach — and went down to ut- 
ter defeat as a powerful uppercut all 
but ripped his head from his shoulders! 
**D-don*t hit me again," he mumbled 
through battered lips. 

Ted stood over him like a wildman. 
"I've only started!" he breathed, lips 
white. "Unless yuh do two things! First, 
return all the land yuh've taken over in 
these parts — an* second, sign a full con- 
fession about what yuh've been up to! 
Are yuh gonna play nice, or do J hafta 
rip yuh apart?** 

McCoy played nice. The sheriff took 
care of him, and from that day on, the 
San Morales Valley was a peaceful and 
contented spot. There's been no trouble 
since, for lawbreakers have steered clear 
of that locality. You sec, they knew that 
they had a hc-mon to contend with — 
Wildman Ted Peters!
