Jarnigan confronted by the bandit as he stood alone m the liqtior store, heeded the gunman's command to 'open that cash register." Just as the money drawer shot i open Jarnigan ducked beneath the eoxvnter for a pistol and the bandit fired a shot that struck the Stamps man in the elbow, ranging up toward the wrist and emerged to strike him again in the heck. Despite the flash of p'aiti. Jarnigan leveled down on the highwayman as the latter ran out of the store and fireH with a .44 caliber pistol. It, .was believed certain that the man was hit, because City Marshal E. E. Galloway reported following a trail of blood .from the store to a spot nearby where the bandit's getaway car was parked. Jarnigan was taken to a Magnolia ihospital. His wounds were not believed serious. . Meanwhile a police alarm was flashed.'to Texarkana to be on the lookout for the bandit as his car was •last seen traveling in a westernly direction from Stamps. State 'Police Officer Max Tackett, City Policeman Jesse Stewart and Charlie Chittim together with members of the Miller county sheriff's department early Tuesday had blocked, and were searching Highway 82 from Texarkana to Garland City in search of the gunman.

REU..ION A* If HAD plenty to tell Juddy when •* I sat dldwn to my typewriter. She wouldn't get the letter till the Kent yacht docked in Brooklyn, which would be a couple of weeks yet. This is what I two-flngered out. Friend Juddy— Trade continues good. My accounts are a mess without you. Bixie Groff shot Maurle. They found his bullet. Angel Todd has quit Welliver. Coach Harley is wild. Sheriff Mowry is still trying to horn in on Tam- bay. No dice. Loren Oliver has got him checkmated. You know; Old Doc Oliver, the chess player. Mowry has not found it out yet, but the only gold at Tambay was old Chief Whoo- zis's watcb charm. You couldn't mine enough gold in a century here to fill my hollow tooth. What did I always tell you that Doc was a straight shooter. He is back and looking peakid. If that is not spelled right, spell it yourself. He asks after you. So do the Four Horsemen. Tam- bay Tree is down. Doc and Old Swoby did it' with their little hatchet. So you got no excuse not fo come back. Let nothing deter you; not snow nor rain nor heat of the sun nor what have you as Jim Farley wrote on the post office steps. We need you at Tambay. Yours for results, Morrr. Two days before I expected it I get a telegram. Coming by first train. Love. Juddy. So there was a situation moving in on me! Wishing an illegitimate child onto a couple of imaginary parents called for more explanation than I had in stock at the moment. I sent Uncle Andy over to the station for my pal. When she got out of the car at Tambay she looked all around her, and stretched out her arms, kind of loving the place. "Hello, Juddy." "Oh, Mom! I'm back." "It's swell to have you. You're looking elegant." "Where's Lo»on Oliver?" "Over in the stockade." "I'll be back in a mfosiw-." ."•*» 1 '•vent in>o t^:o mansluw ami sts iVos.'n -jid '.aid r.iyself sad sto- ri-d a° tr».i d?a'i. c£ kinfcs and v.'orvdired \vhat forrr; the explosion would tste. T>Y what Jttddy reported" ~t6 me later, the" start was peaceful enough. She tried to apologize about being rough about the gold, but he wouldn't have any of that. He was so nervous, that pretty soon she got nervous, too, "What makes you keep looking at me so queerly?" she said. At that Doc turned so red that she got suspicious. "You're holding out on me," she said. "What is it? Don't stand there like a dumb bunny." From then on he was fighting the jitters. The first sense he made was this, and it wasn't too good: "I want to help you, Juddy. That's all I ask." That got under her skin. "I don't know why," she said, "when I've been so rotten to you." That set him back on his heels. "Do you want me to marry you?" he said. "So that's the painful subject! Why should I want to marry you?" "You've got to marry someone, haven't you?" "Why?" "The—the usual reason. You wouldn't have to live with me, you know." "The usual reason! The usual reason?" By this time poor Doc was desperate. "Mom has told me everything." "And then some, apparently. What has she told you?" "That you were—were going to have a—a—" Then Juddy got it. "She's crazy! Or is it you? I'm not going to have anything. How could I? I mean—wait!" She ran over to the Feederia and gave the three short toots on my whistle that were the come-a- ru'nnin' signal. It sounded like the trump of doom to me. Coming through the front door. I stopped under the faded sign over the doorway. St. Francis & St. Benedight Bless this House from Woful Plight. "You two old plumbers have never lifted a finger to help anyone yet," I told them. "Not since I've been at Tambay. Now get busy." Then I breathed a prayer for those who were about to die and cussed my knees into supporting me over to the stockade. When I saw those two faces, I figured that I might as well get in the first lick and go down fighting. So I gave them the story in words of on.-; syllable. "And if you don't like it, the devil with both of you," I said. Juddy begins to laugh. But Doc glares at me like fie la r«ady to bite. I'll be a thissenthat If the ungrateful twirp wasVt sore. Juddy shushed him! "I'm not sure yet that I know what it's all about, Mom," she said. "But your Doc has done his part. He says painful as it is, he's willing to marry me, but he won't live with me." "Lay off him, Juddy," I said, for poor Doc was nearly choking to death, trying to deny he'd ever said any such thing. "He did, though. He's just the sort that would." * * * W/'ELL, the tone of her voice ought to have told him plenty. But the poor boob still thought she was only making fun o." him. "I said you wouldn't have to live with me," he explained to me. "You understand, Mom, don't you? I meant she could always divorce me or annul me or whatever it is the courts do, you know." "Annul you?" she said. "I'd hate to have you annulled, Loren. There's only one of you." "And the species might die out," I said. "Not if I can do anything about it," she said. At last he got it. "Juddy! Juddy!" I walked over and opened the door. "It's your move, Chessplay- er," I said. Smoke was drifting toward the sun that hadn't quite risen when I got up next morning. Dolf sniffed the spicy air. He put up a paw and nudged my knee. "Okay, boy," I said. "I know how you feel." For goodby, I wrote a note and pinned it to the ..tockade door. At the crossroads gassery the redheaded man came out yawning. "Hiya, Mom," he said. "Fill her up?" "Hiya, Monty," I said. "All she'll take, and oil." He popped his eyes at the Fee- deria. "Off to the roads again. Mom?" "I liked Tambay a lot," I said. "But you can't stay one place forever." "No," he said. "I expect not. Not if a lady has breathed as much dust as you have, Mom. It gets in the blood. And there's always the road." "Yes; there's always the road," I said. I put her in gear. The Feederia rolled. The dust banked behind us and rode the breeze back toward Tambay. I looked ahead at the far turn nnd wondered what was around on the other side.
