Roylsden #53

Turns out, the gift was a pretty package!
I overheard Sheriff Cole and Mickey O'Donohue, the new barhelp at the nanny shop at the rough end of Roylsden, talking and Sheriff Cole was saying about them McGinley boys not going home last night and how he wasn't wasting men and time looking for them. If they be starting up with that nonsense again, Mayor McGinley could hire his own hands to chase 'em down.
I had to act now.
"Sheriff!" I shouted, running up to him, I was like a whirlwind with panic over my face.
"It's Clint! Clint Dempsey!"

    "nanny shop" was - for some reason I can't work out - a euphemism for a not-[articularly-high-class brothel in some parts of the old West.

    For ‘nanny’ read ‘knocking’ then!
