Episode Summary

The Les Rand Story

Charlie Wooster, cook to Major Adams, is badly injured when he becomes trapped under a wagon. The train doesn't have a doctor but Flint thinks there is a town a couple of days ride away which does. The Major duly sends him on his way. Riding hard Flint soon reaches Little Fork, a one horse town in the middle of nowhere where the few inhabitants live uneasily with neighboring Indians who occasionally try to trade with them. When Flint arrives he finds all the townsfolk in the saloon. To begin with they are not too friendly to the scout, although he does learn that the doctor is out of town and no-one knows when he will be back. Flint decides to wait it out. Then there is a sudden change for no apparent reason. The folk become friendly; offer Flint a bed for the night and food. Although he is puzzled by the change, he doesn't question it straight away, deciding to bide his time. Almost the moment Flint's head touches the pillow he is asleep. Next morning he awakes to a silent town. Everyone but him has left. He leaves the saloon and starts to wander around the deserted streets. Then he sees a lone stranger riding into town. Eventually Flint discovers that this man is also looking for the doctor - to kill him.
