IX INHERE was no doubt in Doc's mind that Long Andy intended to shoot him down as he stood there in the doorway of the cabin. "You ain't goin' nowheres!" Long Andy repeated his words, as if he enjoyed lonm'nting his victim before he shot him. His finger lightened on the-trigger. But Long Andy's, companion, who somehow still looted vaguely familiar to Little Doc, moved suddenly. His hand slipped to his side and came up holding a gun. Long Andy may not have noticed the motion, or it he noticed it, he may have thought that his companion intended to back him up in ridding Wolf Point of Its only medical man. But the other [cllow didn't turn his gun on Little Doc. Instead, he used it as a weapon against Long Andy. He brought the-barrel down with a quick, chopping motion across Long Andy's wrists. Long Andy screamed as his gun flipped from his hand and spun through the air. landing with crash on the ground by Doc's feet. Long Andy clutched his broken wrist. "You busted my arm!" "And I'll bust your back with > bullet, Andy, if you try to stop Little Doc. Pick up the gun, Doc, and stick it in with your sawbone tools." Doc leaned over, retrieved the gun and slipped it into his bag. The other man nodded and spoke again to Andy: "Stay here in the cabin. There's some likker in the jug—take drink and forget it. If Shorty wants anything, do the best you can. I'U put LitUe Doc on his horse." Doc and the other man [ef Long Andy cursing and whining. Little Doc took a deep breath • nd looked his thanks to his companion. 'pHE fellow grinned back. There was something familiar abou :he mnn. Doc was sure of it now. tfe knew too where he had seen he fellow before. "Come on. Doc."-the man said. Me led Little Doc to where he had left his horse, behind a clump of thick brush not far from the cabin. Little Doc paused by the horse. I'm a tenderfoot," he said, "and I know tendcrfeet aren't supposed to ask questions—besides, all this is none of my business." "What are you drivin 1 at, Doc?" The man looked nervous and Mgety. just lihc Doc had seen him once before, but this time he was nervous for a much different reason. "Just Ihis," Doc said, "if 1 were n your boots, I'd saddle up my horse and ride away from here as fast as I could, Let Long Andy have that bunch of stolen horses— I'll bet they were stolen if Long Andy had anything to do with them. I seem to recall you've got wife and a baby to consider." The man's eyes popped open little wider. Doc knew he had guessed right. The fellow had grown a heavy beard and his hair needed cutting. He wore a pair of dirty old overalls and an old fian- nel shirt His boots were badly worn and his shapeless old hat was stained with sweat. But there was no mistaking this man. Doc had seen him before on the train that brought him to Wolf Point. -He was the man in the shabby brown suit, whose wife had had a baby on the train the stateroom Doc had paid for with his own money. This man'i wife had been Doc's first patient He was the man who had said: "God bless you. Doc." The fellow shrugged his shoulders. "I hoped you wouldn't recognize me. Doc. 1 left the missus and the baby in Chinook. We were flat busted. I was looking for job punching cows when Loni Andy invited me to throw in with his bunch." "Look* like it wasnt a good dea." Doc said, tilting hi> head oward the cabin where a man V dying. "Somebody tumped us when -ong Andy and Shorty were shov- n 1 some horses out of a pasture wo nights ago." the man explained. "We made a runnin' fight of il and Shorty got shot in the belly. I told Long Andy 1 knew here was • new doctor to Wolf ?oint. so he went to fetch you. But • owe you a lot. Doc. I wouldn't have let Long Andy hurt you.' Doc nodded. That'i on« way to pay a doctor bill," he said. You're going to turn me in to the law?' Doc shook his head. "Not u long as you go straight I'll Bud you a job. Nobody need know anything about this deal—and 1 doubt if you had » very bif band in it. The horses will all go back Lo their owners u soon as 1 can tip'off the constable." The man half-turned. "Ill ride back to Wolf Point with you, anyway," he said, "long Andy might decide to head you off." At that moment Long Andy came out of the cabin with a jug in his hand. He shouted at them in a rasping voice: "Shorty's dead!" The man shook his bead. Then replied: 'I'm glad the poor devil's out of his misery. And I think I've had enough." r ONG ANDY took a step toward them, but u the other man loosened his gun in iti bolster. Long Andy thought better at it and stopped. "What do you mean?" Long Andy asked cautiomlj. "I'm quittin' you right now, Long Andy," said the other man. "You're welcome to them bones." The man who bad paid bis doe- tor bill saddled up his own mount and joined Doc, They started off down the trail. "What's your name?" Doc asked, "Brown." said the man. "Call me Brownie." They did not look back and Long Andy made no move to stop them as they hit the trail toward town. , <T» Be Conttnced) "Maybe Dorothy does need a convertible—she has to compete with a lot of girls whose silly parents try to buy them popularity!"
