Horse thieves are all bad, and you ain't." Hrownie's eyes were on the floor and he didn't reply. Lillle Doc answered for him: "Ile'U take the job. Dusty." "I won't be hirin' a horse thiet u-hcn 1 put you on. Brownie," said Dusty. "Those' were my horses that Long Andy took and your job is to lake them back to the Rockin' R horse camp on Beaver Creek. There's a good cabin there and a bunch of horses to look after. In fact, I've been look-in' for a married man to hold down that horse cnmp." Dusty shoved his hand in his pocket and pulled out a Dstful ol crumpled bank notes. "Here. Send for your wife and baby to come to Wolf Point, she can get whaj she needs to set up housekeepin' at the Mercantile and charge it to the Kockin' II. I can square things with you later. She'll want to fix the piaco up." Brownie looked as if he were going to cry. "There, now Brownie," Dusly consoled. "Don't thank me. Little Doc's the man to thank. Now hightail it and send a telegram to that wife of yours." After Brownie left, Dusty held out some bills to Uttle Doc. "Here's what 1 owe 3>DU T Doc." "Good gosh, Dusty! It's an awful shock to have a patient pay ime in cash!" Litlle Doc helped Dusfy into his : clcnn shirt and shoved him out ol 'the door. • • • ; r rWO small boys came into the waiting room after Dusty left. One of them held a small, black and white spoiled puppy ol indefinite pedigree in his hand. The other youth held oul a few pen- nies to Doc. "Spotty got his fool caught in a gopher trap. Doc," sal the youth holding the dog. "We're kinda partners in Spotty," the second boy said. He held the pennies closer so Doc could count them. "Here's seven cents. If that ain't enough, we'll work out the rest of iL We're strong for our age. Doc." Doc wiped off a grin and lifted the pup from the boy's arms to his table. He washed the bloody paw and examined iL "No bones broken," he said in his hesl bedside manner. 'TI swab off the paw. hut there's no use putting on a bandage. He'd only chew it off and swallow it. And keep your pennies. I've already had a patient pny me today and 1 couldn't stand the shock of getting two cash deals in one day. Besides, vou'll need the money for soda pop, and I've got two bits that'll only go through Ihe hole in my pocket." He gave the boys the quarter. The iwo boys beamed and left with the puppy. Later, Dusty and Kit came over lo lake Doc out to supper at the Chinaman's. Kit spread a bis catalog from a surgeon's supply company on the table. "Pick oul what you need; Doc," said Dusty. "Shoot the works. Later on you and Kit can work out the plans she has for turnin' the hotel her father left her into a hospital. You can move your oflice over there when il's finished." A FTER supper they went to Kit's house and talked until long after midiiighL Kit insisted on slaying on her job lo help Litlle Doc until he found a nurse to take over hut Kit and Dusty planned their wedding right after the calf roundup. That evening Dusty'"lef1 to go back to his roundup and Little Doc walked back to his oflice alone. Old Dad and Shep woke up and bade him goodnight. But after he turned in. aj tired as he was. sleep would not com* for Litlle Doc. Back Bast seemed a long, long way off and hall forgotten. Kit and her understanding had helped him across the roughest stretch ol the road and he. in turn, hod been her friend when she was in need of one. Thinking of Kit and Dusty married and hnppy. brought a smile into hii heavy lidded eyes. The Westbound went through Wolf Point without stoppin^. The bell clanged and the locomotive whistle shattered the silence of the summer night. • The porter George and the same conductor were on the train and they 'had given the engine crew orders to dang the bell and blow the whistle at Wolf Point, to let Little Doc know they remembered him. The last sounds of the locomotive whistle wailed into the dying echoes and the wolf howl chorus picked it up, and then there wa» only the silence of the night. Little Doc's black leather bag was now shabby and leather sculled, and the memory of the girl who had given it to him, was gone, leaving no heartache or bitterness. Here at Wall Point, John Sand, M. D., had corne into his own. He was a cow country 'doctor who now belonged in the West He knew that be would always stay here. His patients were building him a hospital and he had the friendship of ihe whole cow country. His heart was at peace and he had high hopes. When h« looked out the window the stars came down low and within reach for Little Doc. THE END found that thieves had stripped his airplane of mast of the removable part. 1 ;, including: propeller, tail wheel and tires, radio and microphone, compass, a window pane, even hb> dark glasses.
