"All right, now.

I don't know him!

Come on, now, you know everybody.

I don't know anybody anymore! I'm dead! Understand?

Well, there was a time when I knew everybody. That was a long time ago when all this was prairie. In these days everybody's in a hurry. That's right... with your damned
good-for-nothing trains! Disgusting!

One day, someone from the railroad comes here to see me. He says, Prophet, the railway's gonna go right past your house.

Is that so? I said.

Yep, that right, he says. All those trains gonna go right past here. The best thing for you, Prophet,is sell your land to the company... or else we'll buy Baker's. He lives next to your place,and I'll put the tracks here... and that'll make you go crazy. Will you sell out to our company, Prophet? Oh, is that so? Says I. He was very anxious for me to sell out.

You know what I told him about the railroad?

You know what I told him he could do with his railroad?

You know what my decision about selling was? Well, you said no. You're right about that.No to him and his damn trains! I wouldn't! No!

Look, listen to me, old man. You're supposed to be a prophet. I didn't come here to listen to you rattle on about trains.I want to find out about this man. It's obvious you don't know anything.

No need to be insulting. If that's all you came here to do... you can clear out of my house fast before I lose my temper.

Hey! Where you goin'?

I guess I better leave before you go and lose your temper.

What's the matter with you?Why are you so dang stupid?

Hurry up,give me that pistol there. Yeah, right there behind ya. Hurry! Yes, that's the one. Now, hand it over. That's it. Give me that gun.The man you asked about. There's only one question: How does he carry his gun?He wears it here, across his belly? Well, why didn't you tell me that in the first place, my boy. Of course I know the man you're trying to find out about. Of course I know him. He's Colonel Douglas Mortimer. Mortimer... a brave man, a soldier. He was known as the best shot in the Carolinas. A great soldier. Now he's reduced to being a bounty killer, same as you. Because of trains! Because of the damn trains! Damn 'em!
