You mean you ain't never heard

of Windy Miller?

No, we never did.

But from now on, we're for him.

Where's that food he was talking about?

Come on.

Come on, let's have the fighters in here!


Ladies and gentlemen...

we beg your indulgence

for a few more minutes.

We can't start this fight

till Windy Miller gets here.

He's being detained at the hotel

on business.

What business?

The railroad's finished, ain't it?

Start that fight.

Get Windy here in a hurry.

- Get your fighters in the ring.

- All right.

Quiet, now.

The fighters will be right in the ring.

Get them out of here.

This is all right.

I think I'm gonna like this town.

Yeah. Plenty going on here, huh?

Introducing the pride of Camp 19.

The best track layer west of the Mississippi:

Dutch Henry!




Introducing the pride of Camp 18:

Matt Sawyer!


- What's the matter with you?

- My leg, it's busted.

Somebody get a doctor.

Get a doctor, somebody.

A fine time you picked to be a high-jumper.

Get him out of here.

We got to have a fight.

There's Windy now. Come on.

Don't you worry, folks,

don't you worry for a minute.

We'll have a fight

if I have to take him on myself.

- Come here.

- Hey, big fella. I'll take you on.

- Excuse me. May I get through, please?

- Go on back and sit down.

- I'd like to get through to the ring.

- Go on back and sit down.

- Wait a minute.

- Just a minute.

You want to make something of it?

Hey, you Jeb Stuart boy!

Come over here.

How would you like

to pick up $200 in a hurry?

I'd even spend some time

to pick up that much money.

Start getting out of your clothes,

you're gonna fight Dutch Henry.

No. Wait a minute. I'm no fighter.

Win or lose, $200 in cash.

I'll do it for $50.


We owe you the rest.
