About midway of a certain block, the policeman slowed his walk. In the doorway of a darkened store, a man stood.
The policeman on the beat moved up the avenue impressively. Trying doors as he went, twirling his club, the officer looked like a guardian of the peace.
It's all right officer. I am just waiting for a friend. There used to be a restaurant here.
The man in the doorway struck a match and lit his cigar.
Big Joe Brady's Restaurant was torn down five years ago.
Twenty years ago, I made an appointment with Jimmy Wells, my best chum and the finest chap in the world.
The waiting man pulled out a handsome watch, its lid set with diamonds.
That's rather a long time between meets. Well I hope your friend comes along all right. I'll be on my way then.
Is that you Jimmy Wells ? You have grown tall. The West has given me everything I asked for.
After 20 minutes, a tall thin man came hurrying over from across the road.
Is that you Bob? I was certain I'd find you here. How has the West treated you? We'll go to a place and talk more.
It sometimes changes a good man into a bad one. You are under arrest Silky Bob.
When they reached a drug store, they gazed at each other. The man from the West stopped suddenly and released his arm.
You are not Jimmy Wells. 20 years will not change a man's nose from a roman's to a pug's.
Going quietly, are you ? Before we go onto the station here's a note I was asked to hand to you. Its from patrolman Wells.
The man from the West unfolded the piece of paper. His hand was steady when he began to read it but it trembled by the time he had finished.
Bob : I was at the appointed place on time. When you struck the match to light your cigar, I saw it was the face of a man wanted in Chicago. - Jimmy
