bobbed to the whisky. "No sense in workin' your guts out-and for nothin'."
Hitchcock leaned on the counter. "It's like the hydrophoby. You get bit and you're gone. Or it's like a dog with two bones. Can't handle but one but won't let another dog have the other. Let the British have Oregon. We got bone enough."
" You don't hold with movin' to Oregon?" McBee asked.
" Not as long as he's got a counter to lean on and whisky to drink," Evans answered.
Hitchcock let his big eyes slide to Evans. "What's wrong with Missouri? Same kind of people here, and more hog meat to eat, and you can sleep dainty in a
sure-enough bed."
McBee said, "I guess you don't understand. Fill 'em up, will you?" When it came time to pay, he fumbled in his breeches and finally turned to Evans and said, "I'm damned if I ain't left my money at the wagon."
Evans paid. "You ain't the pioneer kind, Hitch. Let 'em settle, and you come after, with your bar'ls and calico and ideas of gettin' rich. Storekeepin' ain't what you'd call venturesome."
" A hell of a lot you know about it, Lije. A store man's got to be quick on the trigger." He straightened his big bulk, as if to show he was ready for whatever. "And where'd you be without a store?"
" 'Y God, out of debt," McBee put in.
Hitchcock stared at him. "I reckon you know," he said, "that no wagon train's takin' a debt-skipper."
" I was just makin' fun."
" Take away the stores," Evans said, "and a man could lay by some money."
