CHAPTER 8 - NEW MOVES

" We was playin' last night an' Jeb wanted me to stake Pinto," he explained. Then, as an afterthought, " Bud got it all wrong, I was out on Pinto the night before-he was movin' all right then. Best come an' see him."
Callahan's face remained expressionless. Tuck Werner had gone out of his way to explain that Bud had made a mistake-pretty interesting, that. Callahan reckoned he could take it for granted that Tuck had been out on the previous evening. Probably Jeb had been with him. Tuck was being careful, but like a lot of guys who thought they were clever, too careful.
Jeb called to a ranch-hand to bring Pinto to the corral. When the man returned leading the pony, there was another guy with him. Callahan needed all his self-control then, because here was the man he had seen with Tuck Werner outside the hotel, the stranger whom Bill had probably seen in the hills.
He slouched along, still shabbily dressed, an old Stetson on his head. His chin was still unshaven. Deep-set eyes, sharp and bright for all he must be over sixty, darted this way and that as he came across to Tuck.
" Hiya," he said, " doin' a bit o' business ?"
" Sure-how 'bout you givin' my boys a hand with the steers, Charlie ? Me an' Jeb, we've got to talk to Mister Callahan. I'd be obliged if you'd watch the boys ; they ain't no good on their own."
Charlie looked across the corral to where Bar-20 hands were still driving steers through the wide gate.
" O.K. Tuck, like you say," he muttered, and slouched off.
Callahan watched him go and then turned to Tuck.
" Guess he's a stranger round here ?"
