The beat the sergeant could do at the moment wo;]Id be to send a "recon" lo tnkp us home. Roger perished the thought that he should accompany us and leave our car alone at Hie mercy of the mechanics. He would slay <n personally sec that it was righted, and drive it home himself. It was a gorgeous moonlit night, and Jf there is one thing above unolhci lo be said for Montana, it is that the visibility is good. In Montana. one can sec farther and see less than anywhere in the world; Blind Kd with his cane could have founii the turnoft from the army road to the highway. But not Roger. 1 must have been asleep for several hours when there was lap on my door. Roger wished to speak lo me. "Come in," I said squeezing my eyes tightly shut ant hoping not to be very much waked up. "I've had a slight accident, 1 ' he .said. My eyes popped open. Hoge held up a bloody handkerchief as evidence. VMy nose," he explained "I missed the turn onto the highway. Hit a post head on." 1 was tempted to sny "How coutc you?" but I hat would have bee: verbose. 1 settled for "Where is the car?"

"Why, you—you crazy galoot, v'ouj" Rob exploded at Roger, 'You—you big palookn, yon. 1 ' I ivas astonished nt the moderation with which he dealt with Roger, Foi a moment I thought the shock had been loo much for him. "Haven't you insurance?" Roger asked in his voice of sweet reasonableness. "Insurance!" Rob bellowed "Why, you fool, do you think I'd ask an insurance company to stone a loss like this? I'd rather hold 'em up with n gun- I'll tell you who'll pay for this, you ninny You'll pay half and I'D pay half That's who'll pay for it. Maybe that'll tench you something aboil automobiles.
