A Light still burned in his office. He found Kit waiting for him: Another woman was asleep in a chair. Kit had put a 12-year-old boy to bed on the cot in the operating room and-given him a pill to make him sleep. "His face is flushed and hot and his skin Is dry. I took his temperature nnd he's running a high fever," she whispered. Little Doc examined the boy anrl looked at Kit. "Scarlet fever," he said. "He's gol to be isolated, and the mother with him. How lar out of town do they live, Kit?" "Five miles. It's a small ranch. The father Is out on the round-up He-workstfortheRocking R." • • The mother had brought the sick boy to town In a spring wagon. Doc bundled up the boy and then gave Kit instructions how to fumigate the olTice before following mother and boy to the Rocking R ranch. He had no quarantine sign to tack up, but he gave the ranch woman careful instructions and told the hired man to stay away from the house. He left, promising to return the next day. The newness was fast wearing oU the little black bag Doc had irought with him to Woil Point. This bag had been given to him by a girl. The.girl he planned to marry as soon as he had established a practice. But the girl hadn|t waited. Instead, she nad married a society doctor who already had a practice and John Sand had taken the train west as soon as he learned the news. « • • JTJOC pushed thoughts of, her into the back of his mind as he rode home. It was past sundown when he finally got back to town. As he entered the cabin in which lie made his office, the reek of disinfectant struck him like a blow. A cough disclosed the presence of Kit. wearing a gauze mask and her eyes red-lidded from the fuincs. "I'll eat every confounded germ that's left, Little Doc." she wheezed as she removed the mask. "How's the boy?" Doc nodded and opened a window to admit some fresh air, then he went to the door and Kit followed him outside. "He'll need nursing," he said. "His mother's strong and hasn't picked up the bug—at least, not yet. She's a sensible woman and I told her what to do. I'll go out first thirig in the morning. Meanwhile, you'd belter go home and get a night's sleep." "You're out on your feet yourself," she said. "Better take a hot bath and get to bed. We're both a fine pair of wrecks." "You're as tired as I am. Go home—go to sleep yourself. Doctor's orders. And no nonsense about it." They were standing outside in the twilight. Kit Carson knew that Little Doc was going to kiss her as they stood close to each other. She could have turned away, taken a step back. She had need only to turn her eyes away and the man's impulse would be gone But she kepi looking at him and into Mf eyes and when nls armi reached out. her lips were ready. * • • • 'J'HE sheepherder's dog Shep charger 1 oasl them, growling low He charged Into some rosebushes that made a hedge beyond the Whitetiouse They neard • man's snarling outcry of pain and saw Toad Creak from his eavesdropping shelter and run. Shep trotted back with a ragged chunk of checkered cloth. Old Dad. the sheepherder. nair and beard trimmed and wearing clean clothes, came out of the shed where he cad been staying th« past 10 days. "Shep." the sheepherder explained, "don't Ilk* fellers prowl- in' around." He pulled on nit battered hat and headed up Ih* street. "I'd just dropped ofl fei five winks, when Shep woke m« up. I'm outa tobacco. Little Doe I ain't huntin any more likker Vou aon : t aeed to worry about me." "We won't worry about you, Dart," Little Doc called after him. He lowered his voice as he spoke to Kit: "There goes a splendid liar." "He won't get drunk." said Kit. "He's taking the stage out in the morning and going back to hU band of woollies." 'I didn't mean that. There's • pound of pipe tobacco in his shed. He was wide awake. 1 think he sic'd the dog on Toad," Little Doe said. He still had hold of her hand, "Good night, Kit. Get some rest." "Good night, John." Both were thinking Die same thing. Toad could make trouble for them il he saw that the newt got to Dusty Rhodes.
