racing. They didn’t go to Omaha
those days to “see the races.” A
half drunken puncher, Colt’s six
hanging at the hip, was breaking a
bronc one day—a familiar proceed

what is now called Fourth and
Douglas streets. The liquor-soused
puncher drew his Six with the in
tention of beating the exhausted
pony over the head. The blow was

grip of the sheriff encircled his
wrist and his nibs was relieved of
the gun. Ed was a man of action
rather than words. Pat Gahagan

right to his face, saying he was
the only man in Holt county who
could go get ’em. In the little
