The tall man settled down to a long, steady trot—the cowhand's trail gait, which is no hardship at all on a man who Is used to spending long hours in the saddle. But every trot step was torture for the blindfolded John Sand. Little Doc clung to the saddle horn with both hands. He triec to stand in the stirrup leathers that rubbed his shins raw Every inch of the ride, which must have been 10 or L2 miles and to Little Doc I 1 seemed Like a hundred miles, was torture. He was gray with pain and fatigue and dizzy from being blindfolded when at last his captoi drew up. **Git off your horse," the tall man broke his long- silence as he dis mounted and stood beside Littl Doc's mount. "We're goin' the res of the way afoot," During the long ride, Little Doc* blind/old had slipped * little— enough for him to look around It was getting daylight and h could, see a lot of brush and rock and the muddy water of the Mi: 1 souri river.- They • had not-crossec the river yet and Wolf Point wa on the north bank. He could mak out a clearing and a horse castur that held a lot of horses. A roun pole corral and a log barn anc cabin with the door dosed,. Little Doc was so stiff that th man had to drag him from th saddle and iteady him until he gc his footing. Then he untied th ,black bag from the saddle. Th black silk handkerchief the ma wore for a mask had slipped dow around his neck and Little Doc g a good look at him. He was a b rawboned man with a long th ise and underhung jaw and pale ean eyes. Doc remembered the man now. e was one o( Blackjack Lambert's allbeorers- Kit Carson had pointed im out the day of the funerai xrns Andy Anders. Dusty hodes once caught him stealing ome Rocking R horses and sent im to prison Blackiack got nim ut on parole tast month, He has place a few mites down the river, le's bad medicine." Kit had told im. Somewhere in the distance ounded the mournful wail of acomotive whistle and a woU ricked up (he echo and howled in he gray dawn. Little Doc shiv- •cd a liuie. Long Andy's gun prodded him in he back. "Step along. Doc. I've got your bag." * • • ITE was half .. way across the clearing when Long Andy's voice sounded behind him: "I"though You slipped your blindfold You shouldn't a done that. Some ,imes it don't pay a • man to see o much." He reached and pulled the blind fold from Little Doc's face anc stuffed it In hia pocket. The cabin.door'opened cautious iy and a man stood back in th shadow of the unlighled cabin 'You fetch the Doc?" a voic called. 'I got him. I had him blind folded and 1 took him the Ion way around, thinkin' to throw hi oil. But the blindfold slipped an he's seen too much for his own good." Little Doc grabbed his bag fn the lanky man's hand and headec for the cabin. "You waste too much tim talkin'," Doc retorted. "Light light," he said to the man block g the doorway with • gun In and. A low moan came from some- here on the floor, Doc looked own and saw a man OD a tarp- overed roundup bed spread on c bard-packed dirt floor of the g cabin. The wounded man's face wu imy with cold sweat and the color ; r his skin hud a greenish pallor, e looked up at Little Doc with lazed eyes, as the medical man nelt and pulled the tarp back ently. The man's shirt and blood- tained overalls had been taken ofi nd his long underwear was sod- en with blood. A nauseating tench came from him. He had been shot in the boil? nd gangrene bad set in. The Bounded man was dying. He would be dead in a tew hours at he longest Doc pulled the blood- .tamed tarp back over him and fave him a hypodermic. The man lever moved and his glazed eye* w nothing. f ITTLE DOC went to the door and motioned the two men outside, "If I'd gotten here yesterday or soon after it happened, 1 might 'e saved his Life, but I doubt* ft. The man will be dead to • tew iiours • 1 gave him a shot of dope to ease the pain." He held up a hand when Long Andy was about to open his mouth. "1 don't care who you are. 1 don't want to know anything about you or your business. It's, part of any doctor's Job to keep bis mouth shut and betray no secrets. Ther* is nothing more t can do (or that man. If you will A point out the trail, 111 find my way back to town." **Lik« Tun you will!" Long Andy had hii six-shooter to his hand.
