The trusty scout is hired unseen on everyone’s recommendation that he can track, and even predict, with extraordinary accuracy. The General of the cavalry at Fort D.A. Russell goes out to meet him and finds him lying very still in the middle of faint wagon tracks with his ear to the ground. As they approach the scout slowly raises a hand and starts speaking, low and carefully, very quietly. “Four wagons. -- Two horses each. – Two men on each wagon. – Third wagon with a woman and child. – First wagon full of cantaloupes. Second, munitions. –Fourth, uniforms. --- Blue uniforms. “Holy cow”, says the general.” You can tell all that by just putting your ear to the ground!?” The scout continues weakly – barely audible – “ --- just ran over me”
