has Hi live. A HQRPHANT.'I iiimimimiuuiiiiiiiimiiuimiimmm i Doc! 99 By By HAROLD TITUS. Author of 'To iht Victor." Copyright The Frank A. Munsey Company ( 1 i i I" ""Twice Hurtly calk'd on the otheifl to help him move the uuconsciou lisure on which he worked, and each tlm after they had given their as iHtHHce he ordered them away with n unequivocal Kharpness which, be ides sending them promptly into the shadows and out of his way, made them understand that this chap was In some way beyoud their experience, quite different from any they had ever encountered and secretly each of the three wondered about him. The lak progressed; the night aged. The mun in whose cabin the bandits had sought refuge stood be hind the stove smoking a pipe, re moving the stem from his lips, and holding it in his hands for long inter Tals while he watched the soft fin- geis of Ellis Hardy manipulate the r wound. . r Sam te v oil "leaned against the J rough wall of the log house, motion ' less, as though hypnotized by the physician's nimble movements. The ? Other, who was, addressed as Texas, tt on a backless chair, elbows on his t knees, opening and closing a knife with one thin hand. On him Ellis Hardy turned, straight ening slowly to ease tho muscles of his bad;; then, squaring.his shoulders I as thou;.!) in i lief at gaining a tlesir- d poln;, he f id: g " x nai s an i can t.o n r me ume j Deing. i ll Rtay nere an nour more I and watch him. But 1 have something h to say to you." He fairly snapped out (lie words end walked toward Texas with men . ' acing deliberation. The outlaw looked up as though astounded, for the manner of speech was unmistakably aggressive. "You lied to me! You lied!" stern ly, as though he tried to keep passion from his voice. "You told me that you wanted me to come here and care for your wile, Instead of that you bring mo here to care for Bart Sears a man wanted for murder and highway robbery, a man who Is being hunted by this whole reservation." He had stopped with Inleiiseness. As , lie finished speaking he atraighteued and every line of his figure bristled indignation. . "It was my place to come," he went on. "I wouldu't refuse help to a io a yellow dog! But you tricked mc more than that, you lied!" His voice fell again as though the accusation were the worst he could make against a fellow men. . "Why couldn't you be honest with me? You. were going to give me your confidence anyhow by bringing me here; why couldn't you be open and frank with me in my office? "No man likes to be tricked. You know what every honest man thinks of you fellows anyhow," with a sweep ing gesture. "Why make it worse by lying when you could tell the truth?" He stopped, hand still extended; then let it slowly fall to h!s side. His $aze still bored Into Texas. "Well," the man mutterVd, "what's the difference?" "Difference! Why "Oh, you can't understand!" And with the contemptuous declar- Jtlon he wheeled and walked to the edside to sit on the blankets his back to them, choosing to Ignore rath er than to condemn further or to ar gue! None moved. They remained there the one behind the stove holding his pipe; another against the wall, stolid hi a statute; the third on a backless chair, eyes glittering, no longer open ing and shutting the knife. Outlaws they were of that clan which terrorized the border; one of them crafty and expert in the In Irlcacles of deception, the other t,wo ' bold almost to a point of mania ; men who had Instilled the dread which Hardy had come to understand. Their names were things' to be con jured with throughout the country, like the names of grown up goblins; and to them attached heinous crimes in. appalling numbers. They were as bad, as ruthless, as ; men become, with prices on their heads, a short life before them, and stirred to that point of ferocity where they would go their aggressive way . kjtla)wVUt4t UJite end. But when thatdcaiuejtfeejL woujd Gil I CUM UltA HT J oh Tt c stlt., mka. f. f.ft Intratt go without a whimper,' asking only that society buy its riddance of them dearly oh, so dearly! Ytt they held their positions and waiied and remained silent and watched a lone man who had defied them minister to their infamous lead er. They were docile almost meek. Ellis Hardy was not even of their country. He was of a weakened breed in their estimate of men's strenglh. And yet he dominated! There on the threshold they had be held in him a difference; through the long process of cleansing and dressing the wound they had sensed a growth of that impression; and now he had stood among them and accused Texas of a lie, hurling the accusation into their faces with a heedlessness of con sequences that was disarming, strip ping the outlaw of four words of re ply. Then, as though it were nothing a mere incident he had turned his back to them and gone to the bedside, holding aloof as though even conver sational contact were disgusting. And all the time he had been in the house he had thought that thing; he had repressed expression of that con tempt until the pressing portion of his mission had passed. He had forgotten their consequence had presumed upon them; then when he had time when he had time he turned to call them liars! So they sat and watched and won dered. Without even so much as an exchange of glances they knew what the others were thinking. They bad picked this man with the idea that he would be putty in their hands; and here they were, actually cowed by him. The rain had ceased popping on the roof, but the wind blew stronger and tint ted stove in the coiner roared and bellowed with the blustering draft. The smoke from the rancher's pipe rose swiftty, for he stood where ascending heat-waves would catch it. Sam Davort scarcely blinked, so closely did he watch Hardy's actions. And Texas slumped forward on the hard chair, toying with his knife again, wonder in his hard eyes. Minutes dragged into hours with that tensity; eons of time when by without a spoken word. And not once did this Easterner, by look or sound or gesture, betray a symptom of ill-ease; from his manner he. might have been watching a case in a dead white hos pital ward surrounded by attentive as sistants, with the roar of controlled traffic coining through the walls, in stead of in a log-cabin, watched by bandits at night, alone, knowing not where, with only the sob of a pralrio wind outside. The end came .the doctor held tho outlaw's wrist between his fingers and eyed the watch in his other hand. Then he drew the blanket close to Sear's chin and turned to look at the other three, gazing from one to the other searchingly, granting them at tention as individuals for the second l,.ie since he began work. "That is all I can do now," he said hruskly, and rolled down his sleeves. None spoke in answer none moved. The rancher finally opened the stove door and threw in more wood. "Reckon he'll pull through, doc?" he asked. Hardy shook his head and pursed his lips grimly. "I can't tell no one can. He was in bad shape when I got to him, with a lot of splintered bone In there. He wants care and quiet which he may not get. if certain people learn where he I!" with a significant nod. Texas looked up at him malevo lently. "How are they going to find out?" he asked, insinuation In the tone that clearly meant to intimidate. "A hundred ways are possible," the doctor answered, glaring defiance and contempt straight at the fellow and Texas looked almost shocked. This man would not be frightened. He would not grant that those three who were In the room with him had any qualities that might warrant hesi tation in opposing them. And they were accustomed to awe, to a fevered willingness to do their bidding, to a readiness to agree in their voiced opinions. But this man would none of It. He was himself un afraidand yet only a soft-handed young chap from an Eastern city. Then followed his detailed direc tions for caring for Sears, caution lngs. once or twice a gentle plea; and: "Well, that's all for tonight. Who's lo show me the way home?" Texas shut his knife and rose slowly. !Tut on your slicker, doc, an we'll he goin'," he said, without looking at Hardy. Hour after hour it seemed, they rode without a word. The night was a trifle less black, but objects were tin distinguishable even beside the track they followed. Hardy was worn out, but sleep did ell CMTiie steps Ill Tifti CLP PM-HT i Tmm new "CRai HOT f t CfiAN I . if NO HER.

He went over the work he had done step by step, questioning himself to he sure that he had made no slip, that he had Irft nothing undone that might prove n handicap for his patient; and all the while he was trying to realize the situation in which that nijrht's evento twd placed him. With all his efforts he could summon no fear, no concern. It was well toward dawn when they rode 'mo the Indian camp at the edge of the town, and Texas pulled his tangy horse to a stop. "I'll leave wou here, doc; you can find your way in now. You want your money?" "Who's mentioned money?" the doctor asked sharply. "I'll go out again tonight. You'll come in after me?" The man hesitated. "I'd rather not come Into town, doe. I'll meet you here eight o'clock." For a bare instant Hardy pondered before answering: "Eight o'clock good." He turned his horse toward town and rode on, suddenly tired and irri table, and Texas sat fon his big horse watching him go, forearms crossed on his saddle horn. After the sounds of Hardy's travel had died out the outlaw muttered: "Well, if he ain't a beaut that, or else close to a fool!" He pressed a spur to his horse's side and the animal, whirling about, set off up the road. CHAPTER VI. Suspicions. Hardy walked down the street to ward his office next morning with a strange mingling of emotions. A week before he had come to this community and wondered at its in nermost secrets; now, this bright, mellow winter day, he was involved la the heart of its moat' knotty enigma! A posse was searching for the wounded Sears and his followers, and he, Hardy, was one of the handful who knew their hiding place! Another brand of man would have been fearful of possible results, for he sensed keenly the retribution which might be wreaked upon him should he disclose Information to those who hunted; but, though realizing, the ybung doctor wasted no thought on such relote consequences, such remote consequences, np more, no less. So long as he needed aid. Hardy would give it, and, in giving it, his Hps were sealed. Low as were the men or the bandit, trio, he held their confidence sacred; great as was their menace in the community his hands were tied until his relationship with them became less binding. He lonihed Soars and hi:; ilk, yet he would have held himself even be low them had he considered the pos sibility of violating the trust that they had reposed in him, cloaked at lrtst though it. was with a ruse, backed by a lie. lie had accepted the situatiou now he would see it through. "But there's a time coming to you, Mr. Sears," he said, speaking half aloud under the strength of his con viction, "when you'll do well to let most anybody else know where you skulk!". . ... ..
