Doc Klaber arrives about five minutes later. There are already several bystanders around. A boy prods the dead body with a stick.

As the Doc turns and asks for help to get him to his office, he says, "If you live…you will be laid up for 2-3 weeks. Maybe more. "

The Colonel puffs his half finished cigar and groans as he is carried to the Metropolitan where doc has his office.
