Jim Hardie is on the trail to Turkey Crossing Relay Station for Wells Fargo when he comes across a young man badly wounded in the shoulder. Being close to the relay station he takes the wounded man there where the reception is very icy. The agent there Walter Farr has just been buried leaving his daughter, Susan, and the new hostler, Henry Brock. Brock wants the two of them to move on as Jim hasn't identified himself. Susan refuses to turn the two men out so Jim suggests they treat the wounded man outside. The wounded man's horse is spent so they are unable to travel even after he recovers somewhat. In the house the telegraph is clattering away but Susan and Brock can't understand it. That night Jim trails Brock who climbs a telegraph line pole and sends out a message which Jim can read. Jim now realizes the trap he is in. He reveals his identity to Susan and the wounded man who happens to play a part in the situation as well. Written by Anonymous
