"Put on jour duds and fetch your doctor's bag. We're goin' fer » horseback ride." The match burned itself out, leaving them in darkness. "You don't need that gun." said Little Doc. "Put it away and light the lamp." He didn't like the ugly sound of the man's voice. "Don't waste time staUin' around. We ain't got all night-" "I'm trying to hurry ft. Quit trying to scare me." Little Doc dressed quickly. "My bag's In the operating room. I'll have to light the lamp to pick out what 1 need to put in it. Is it » knife or gunshot wound?" he isked. "The feller's been shot. Fetch plenty of chloroform to put him to sleep." "Clean wound? Or is the bullet •till in him?" Doc pulled oa his coat. "It's still in him. Don't be too curious with them questions." "I'm not curious about you or the wounded man. I just need the proper lools for the job." Litllc Doc lit the lamp and carried it with him into-the operating room and set it down. The man warned: "I got my eye on you. Don't try to slip a gun into that bag along with your tools." "I don't own a gun. But I'd like to leave a note for my nurse—instructions for her to follow while I'm Rone. When do I get back?" "Tomorrow. Next day. Mcbby next month. Mebby you ain't comin' bark.

Only you. because you're a doctor." The man chuckled harshly. "We got a job fer you." "Thanks. Who recommended me? Thai's a question all doctors ask. Routine qnestion." "Yeah. I know. Like the lawyer asks questions when a man's put on the witness stand. And you git the same answer. I don't remember. ! don't tell nothin.' " 'I wr«j't be much use as • doctor when 1 get there, it yoti don't do something about these stirrups." • • a 'J'HF, tall man dismounted and started shortening the stirrups.

"No. You can die of that cant you. Doc?" The man's voice sounded frightened. "You aint got it have you?" "Not yet But I've got a patient down with it. A little boy.
