In\some mystorloua way each man realized that, the other was. a kindred ecul.,; Wilkorson reached Into the .scabbard of his saddle and pulled out a flask, divining Bill Tiibbs'. rulitig vice; and the. engineer, o/t^r a long drink, wiped his mouth with the back of Uls oily hands/ . . ,"Ba ybu'arolboklng for Thomas Oal-Iph, are you?

Wllkerson leaned farther over until his stirrup-leather creaked underneath his weight. ; ''What's' the matter?" he said tersely. '"The mine not panning out?" Tubbs looked up ^t him through his flre-saarod and liquor-bleared eyes and siodded.
