Dan stood stiff and silent, wholly dazed by the sudden collapse of his fortunes. "I'm not ungrateful for what you've done, Appleton," O'Neil went on. "I intend to pay you well for the help you gave me. You took a chance at the Canon and at Gordon's Crossing. You'll get a check." "I don't want your damned money," the other gulped.
