Osee Nunnally William Berryman II HTTE cowpuncher cut Dr. John Sand a hard look ns he set down the heavy suitcase. LJnmind- ing, the doctor carried the small black bag over to the bar and set it down. Water was dripping from his hatbrim. and his brown eyes were taking in all that there was to see. Then his eyes met the cowpuncher's hard £ray bloodshot eyes, and he motioned' with his head at the man's left arm. One gray flannel shirt sleeve was soaking up the blood that came from a wounded upper arm. I "I'll take a look at that arm of! yours," John Sand spoke in a quiet voice. "I'm a doctor." A slow grin spread the cowpuncher's tight lips and his eyes squinted. The color had come back into his leathery face. "Figgerin' on hangin' out your shingle here at Wolf Point?" His voice was surprisingly soft, almost a lazy drawL "I hope to make my living here," John Snnd smiled and added: '.'Or slarve to death." "1 don't know ahout how much you'll make for a living, Doc. But you sure won't starve. There's always plenty of beef." The saloon man turned, away from the body on the ROOT and . shoved through (he.crowd: "He's The crowd backed away and turned to line up along the bar. A motley gathering. The man who had done the killing was the only one who looked like a "real cowboy. One gray bearded, bleary- eyed man had a collie dog and his clothes smelled of sheep. Another human derelict shuflled off and came back with a bucket of water and an old mop and set them down to take his place at the 'ar end of the bar near the sheepherder to await his drink. A. dapper looking man with the small build of a jockey sidled out the back door and closed it softly behind him. The cowpuncher saw him and grinned crookedly at the handed him the bottle. He walked over to where the heavy suitcase liiy and picked it up. "Fetch the tool bag, Doc." He went oul through the half doors and John Sand .followed him. He led the way down the plank sidewalk to a sod roofed log cabin that was set back about 50 yards from the main street. The cabin had been whitewashed but it was wealliered ofT. He went and lit a big Rochester based lamp. " "This is called the Whitehouse, Doc. Swamp her oul and gel rid of this truck and it'll make you good place to hang out your shingle. Till you get somcthin' better, it's all yourn. II anybody asks how come, you teU 'em one of the Johnson Boys gave it to you." The man grinned. The cabin was lillcred with old boots, chaps, saddles carded clothing and empty and half empty whisky bottles. The air had a peculiar stench of old tobacco smoke, leather and old clothes. A couple of tarp-covered roundup beds rolled tight and tied with bed ropes. Two were spread out on bunks. There was a lit- j tcrcd card table and a few old ! barroom -Chairs, and a round bel- ' lied stove. .Doc lit the stove. fOIIN SAND filled the te. dead, all right," whisky voice. he wheezed in a "I coulda told you that. Trot In behind the mahogany and dig up n bottle that ain't poison, and a clean glass. Doc here needs some- thin' to take the chill of! before he gets to work on me, H said the cowpuncher, who added: "This is Dutch John, Doc. He's got a heart bigger'n his belly, so long as it don't cost him a dime." The big cowman laughed. KIT CARSON half Tilled bottle in his hand. 1 "Toad," he said, "carryin' the news. • I3ut he'll get them fancy duds of his all wet fcr nolbin*. The law's outa, town." He waited for John Sand to fill his shot glass from a bottle that Dutch took off the bar before the man next - to him could reach for it "Tricks like that got Toad ruled off the racetracks. Here's welcome to Wolf Point, Doc," • • * John Sand set down his empty glass, the cowpuncher waited for the water to boil, Doc took a roll of gauze and wiped the blood-away from the bullet rip. He had the wound dressed and bandaged when there sounded B lapping on the door. The cowpuncher reached for the wooden handled six-shooter at his side as he got swiftly to his feet. 'Roll under that bunk, Doc." His voice lost its lazy drawl. It became a sharp bitten command. John San'd crawled under the nearest bunk. He saw man, stripped to the waist, turn the lamp down on low wick. He moved quietly to the door and slid the heavy wooden bar back, then pulled the door quickly inward. He was hidden behind the door with the gun in his hand. "Don't shoot, Dusty!" sounded a woman's voice. John Sand saw a small, slim woman in a rain-wet yellow saddle slicker come in.
