Storyline

The agent on duty at the railway station in Dodd City is out of humor. He has just received a message that the Cannon Ball Express is two hours late, which necessitates his remaining on duty until the train leaves. A stranger enters, purchases a ticket and while waiting for the train, tries to strike up an acquaintance with the agent. The latter at first holds aloof, but when the stranger produces a flask and they have a drink, the agent thaws considerably, and the two are soon engaged in a game of casino. The agent is a trifle excited over the late arrival of the train, but the stranger advises him not to become restless. The stranger then tells a story about two friends, Dink Gober and Floss Campbell, who started as sheep herders near Roswell, New Mexico. Dink and Floss were the best of friends.
