You may copy it, give it away or re-use it under the terms of the Project Gutenberg License included with this eBook or online at www.gutenberg.net Title: The Killer Author: Stewart Edward White Release Date: August 24, 2005 [EBook #16589] Language: English Character set encoding: ASCII *** START OF THIS PROJECT GUTENBERG EBOOK THE KILLER *** Produced by Kathryn Lybarger, Gene Smethers and the Online Distributed Processing Team [TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: In many older texts, the character combination "oe" was tied together with a ligature. Such instances are represented in this ASCII text by enclosing them in brackets. Hence in words such as Oedipus, for example, when the 'O' and the 'e' are connected with a ligature, they will be shown as [Oe]dipus. In addition, the text contains a ranch brand consisting of the characters J and H connected (no space between). This brand is shown in the text as [JH].] [Illustration: He had been shot through the body and was dead. His rifle lay across a rock trained carefully on the trail.] THE KILLER BY STEWART EDWARD WHITE AUTHOR OF THE BLAZED TRAIL, THE RIVERMAN, ARIZONA NIGHTS, ETC.

Myself, I don't think it a good yarn. It hasn't any love story in it; and there isn't any plot. Things just happened, one thing after the other. There ought to be a yarn in it somehow, and I suppose if a fellow wanted to lie a little he could make a tail-twister out of it. Any
