Synopsis for "Blood Brothers"

This story is reprinted from Weird Western Tales #20.

On the trail of AWOL infantryman John Running Wolf, Hex saves him from being beaten by a bunch of bar patrons. Returning him to Fort Lang, they find that it is being attacked by Indians from Running Wolf's tribe. Turning over Running Wolf to the Fort, Hex goes into town and goes to Widow Lacey's home for some r&r.

There, Hex learns that "Widow" Lacey, is an old aquiantence of Eileen Lacey, who introduces him to mayor Harrison Barnett. Barnett hires Hex to rescue Muriel, a girl who had been kidnapped by Red Horse of the local Indian Tribe.

Hex tracks them down and learns that Muriel actually willingly lives with Red Horse, but still rounds them up anyway. Bringing them back to town, Red Horse tells Hex that somebody has been hiring renegade Indians to attack the Fort in order to coerce Washington to send orders to clear the land, so that the mastermind can capitalize on the acquisition of the land. However, Red Horse is killed by gunmen. Hex only manages to get two of them and the third manages to get away.

Taking Muriel back to Lacey's place, he finds out that the mayor and his friend William Vandermeer were the masterminds behind the plot, and that the third gunman was Red Horse's own brother, Running Wolf. Fighting Running Wolf, Hex manages to beat him in a fist fight, even though Running Wolf is able to stab him in the arm with a knife. With Running Wolf defeated, Hex takes his payment for services rendered and turns over all involved to the Fort.
