Description He found a small mess kit with all kinds of canned food, a sack of flour, one half of a mutton and potatoes. The fellow pulled out a Winchester rifle from under the bed which was made on the ground. "So that's your game is it?" asked Butch. "Well old-timer you had better learn how to use a small gun. That one might back up and hurt you." Watching the fellow to see that he did not get the drop on him, he walked up and demanded the fellow hand over the gun. The fellow stepped back, raised the gun, but to his surprise [he] saw Butch had the draw on him from the hip and right straight for his belly. Butch ordered him in no mild tone of voice to throw the gun outside the tent. "Have you any more guns?" [Butch asked], "No." "Well then build a fire. I am getting something to eat and damn quick. And don't make any more passes or something will happen to you damn quick." When the boy returned from watering the horses, Butch told him to untie a bundle of hay for the horses and also give them a good helping of oats. The horses tended to, the boy came in the tent. Butch told him to sit on the bed and rest and thaw out while he got some food ready. The tent was warm from the little camp stove as Butch prepared for their supper. The fellow became more surly but Butch paid very little attention to him. After frying some bacon to get the fat, he fried several thick mutton chops, warmed over some cold biscuits and potatoes, made coffee and opened a can of peaches for dessert. The owner of the outfit lay on one of the beds while Butch and the boy ate their meal. Butch had put a pan full of snow on the stove for dish water and the boy washed the dishes while Butch lay on the bed to rest. Butch asked the owner what his name was. "My name's McDougal. I'll have the law on you for this," he returned. "Oh, that's the way you feel about it. You're damned lucky to get off this easy. It would serve you right if I took every damn thing you have. Where in the hell are you from. You haven't been in this country long or you would know that no man here would turn another out in the cold without anything to eat, you damned fool. "Anyone would be insulted if you offered pay for food. Maybe [I] insulted you. If so, I appologize right now." The owner continued [his] silence and surlyness. Butch decided they would stay all night. He fed the horses more hay and loosened their cinches so they could really eat their fill and left the saddles and blankets on them for warmth as he knew the horses would not lay down. The herder proved to be a pleasing type of a fellow on his return to camp and was glad to talk with Butch. The herder prepared his own supper thinking the owner had eaten. The owner then prepared his own supper and still was silent. When it came to bedtime, Butch ordered the boy to get in bed with the herder and Butch said he would sleep with McDougal. Soon all were asleep and their troubles forgotten for the time being. In the morning, the herder was the first up and prepared breakfast for the four of them. Butch and the boy washed the dishes and put things in order and were ready to leave. "Well, McDougal, what do I owe you?" "Nothing," said McDougal. "I want to be sure of that so here is $10 and if that isn't enough say so and I will give you what you want. And if you ever run into my camp just go in and help yourself." -44-
