"What's your name',"' J 9 asked the Negro, "Poorboy, M the mw gasped,i IM, by "Poorboy Johnson. Doc, is my legs gone?" "One is hurt. Now, look, Poorboy. Xour right leg ia under the wheel. I'm going to pull your left- one away from the track, and hold it. If you'll lie perfectly still —-don't even move an eyelash!— the engine can be backed away, and we can get you to the hospital. But if you move—" "I ain' gonna move, Doc:—but, oh, God, be Sure that engineer tie don't go in de wrong di-rection!" Craig summoned the switchman, and gave his orders. "Engineer o. k. ?" he asked. "1 guess so, Doc. Why?" "Because he must do exactly what 1 say. You tell him that I'll keep Johnson's other leg free of the track; he's to reverse—and only reverse—you got that? Tell him, and come back here to signal him when we're ready." He bent over his patient. He maneuvered the left leg clear of the rail, held it. He gave Poorboy his directions. When the switchman returned, at a nod from the doctor, • he swung his arm in a wide arc—slowiy, surely, the great blue and silver Diesel slid Its wheels back—and the man was free, A cheer went up from the crowd of workmen. "Now, said Craig quietly, "let's get this man to the hospital." The stretcher. came up, Craig helped put the man on it and began to put his instruments back into his bag. His yellow sweater was dark with blood. . . . "Thank you, Evans," he said quietly. "You did a One job." "I did a fine job!" gasped the man. "Why, Doc, you—you—" Craig stood up; his eyes were on a level with the foreman's. "I'd much rather figure a way to keep these chaps from taking their naps on the tracks," he said dryly. "Was Johnson at work?" "Not when that train hit him," said Evans, and the .workers laughed. It helped relieve tension all around. ."You got to cut his leg oil now, Doc?" "I'm afraid I do. But he's lucky that he'll lose only one.!' "He's lucky you were arotind," Evans said with feeling. Craig didn't answer. He guessed the town, and the Carrs, would know that he had been in Norfolk on this Sunday afternoon, wherever Shelly might be. But next morning when E.J, called the office to get a report on the company's liability in the Johnson case, Miss Browne said that Dr. Talboy was out of town. She didn't know when he would be back, He'd left a full report on Johnson, however, and Dr. Ward was in charge of the case. "Mrs; Carr? She's not in the office this morning, either."

"I told nobody where she went." Craig took a deep breath. "Heard there was a bad accident at the plant," said Ike uneasily. "There was," Craig answered. Briefly he recounted what had ft happened. & "Is the man safe to leave—' case you do leave?" asked Myra. "The shortest distance between two points," drawled her husband, "lies through Myra's think- box."
