Kit mumbled to herself "Shows what little that deb knows this goes haywire and I am hung..." She downs a shot and pours another one.

As the train pulls into Miner's Rock, Kit had finished the bottle that was open earlier. Jim looked at her amazed she could still stand....

Jim walked over to her "Well while they get there orders I would suggest you and I go over our cover story."

"yes sir" She thought to herself the hangman's noose would be preferible to this.
"Oh and Mr. west someone should let Mr. Pike know to watch Pet when she gets quiet like that."

Artie, "Come one step closer and I'll misspell your name!"

Kit saw his look and tossed up her hands "Shutting up sir"

Jim smiled at least she was a fast learner."You and are going just like we are to see what we can turn up from the sheriff. the other teams are undercover to not draw attention to whomever is doing this since the Sheriff has already started an investigation here it will just be obvious that we would be called."

"That makes since, When do we meet with the sheriff"

"In half an hour"

"Ok, Mr. West just let me go retrive a few things and I will meet you outside."

He nodded and turned toward Jeremy and the others "So mr. Pike what is your game plan?"


Artie, "Come one step closer and I'll misspell your name!"

Jeremy explained that there had been counterfeit money turning up in Miner's Rock, and that it had started to circulate in Thortonville to the south, and another town to the north. They needed Apple to maintain a cover of dance hall girl because it seemed that a lot of the bills were coming out of the local entertainment establishment.

Apple was prepared for this, and the first chance she got, she was into her bag of tricks, making sure that she had the pots of rouge and kohl pencils that she would need to make herself look the part. This was the part of the job that she never told her mother, but her father new, as did Kent.

Her brother was in the Secret Service as well, so he knew where she was most of the time, though when each of them were out on missions the details were of course not revealed. They had worked together just once. Now he was assigned east, in DC, permanently.

Apple would be working at the Diamond Tiger, an establishment known for, well...just known. Pet snickered at the thought of the little Deb trying to get out of being 'known'.

Jeremy would pose as her "manager", getting her into the dance group as their lead dancer in the floor show each night and twice on Saturdays.

Pidge taps her closed fan lightly on her "sister" and motioned her to the door.

"Come on. Let's go spend some more of "Daddy's" money and see what we can find out.

So they did. Another shop. More dresses, shoes and hats.

As they paid for their merchandise, Francis/Pidge got a good look at the money in the drawer.

"Oh, honey, be a dear and break this bill for me, would you?" She asks the store clerk.

"Why...of course. We don't usually have enough to break a bill that size but we did get some unexpected business this morning." The sales clerk hands Francis/Pidge the change. Pidge folds the "funny money" and places it in her bag.

"Really. There is a party tonight. Who was it that came and spent all of that unexpected money?"

"The Duchess of Jalena Gora. She brought her three daughters and they purchased some nice hats.

"Oh, isn't that just the most interesting thing! Why, thank you for being so sweet. Now please be a dear and have all of this sent to our hotel room? Thank you." And with that the two ladies leave to report to Artemus.

Kit followed Jim to the Sheriff's office. Inside they saw an older man with salt & pepper hair and deep blue eyes he stood when they entered and t ipped his at to Kit.

"Ma'am" She just nodded as Jim spoke

"Hi Sheriff I am James West, I believe you were wired about our comming"

Sheriff extented his hand and shook Jim's "Yes Sir, names John Malcolm." He handed Jim the bills that had been passed "Showed up at the bank."

Jim looked them over "These are good, very good" He handed them to Kit after pocketing one himself. She placed them in her bag. "Any Idea where they are comming from?"

"No but they always show up when there is a big party in town who ever is passing them is good. But so far they haven't made it past our bank."

Jim shook the sheriff's hand "Thank you Sheriff."

"Yes sir Mr. West, if i can help with anything let me know and I will keep you up to date on what I know."

"we will. Thanks Again."

As they were leaving a young man comes in "Sheriff, When is Dr. Smith comming back"

"Another week Samuel. What's the matter"

"Pa has a fever and ma isn't feeling to well."

Kit looked at the young man "My name is Miss Montgomery I might be able to help."
Samuel looked at the sheriff "you can trust her she works for the government, I will send a telegram to Captian's Ridge and let the Dr know he is needed back here."
Kit followed the young man as Jim spoke "I will head to the bank to find out what business passed this money."
"Yes Mr. West I will be at.." she looked to Samuel
"At the general store we live above it Pa i the owner."
Jim nodded "I'll meet you there."
The Sheriff headed to the telegraph office to wire Captain's Corner.

"Uh...Mr. Pike is it? What will my assignment be?" Pet looked to him apprehensively.

"Well, Pet I hear you don't like wearing lacey things so I was thinking you could be a drifter looking for work and just hang about town and see what you can hear." Pet perked up at this.

"Now that's something I can do. Any limits on how I get my information?" Pet asked.

"Well, I would prefer something that doesn't involve theft," Jeremy joked and Pet rolled her eyes. "And try not to do too much damage...there is only so much pull I have with the local Sheriff."

"All right, then I'd better be on my way. Apple I'll check in at the Diamond Tiger as soon as I can." Pet nodded to Jeremy and Apple and took her leave.

After they left the shop, Bess told her "sister" that she wanted to check out the the 2 gift shops she saw in town.

Pidge'Are you sure you want to go by yourself?'
Bess'No, problem, I'll be back at the hotel in a short time, I will be back for the required rest time before dinner and the ball.'
Pidge'You know about all that stuff too.'
Besss'As I said before, that's what I was suppose to be a southern debutante, but even after we moved to Virginia I was determined not to be one and ran off and joined the Secret Service.'
Pidge'You're kidding?'
Bess'I'll tell you about it one day, maybe you should go check on 'Daddy'
Pidge'I'll do that, I'll see you back a the hotel.'

Bess headed for the town's two gift shops while Pidge went to go find their 'Daddy'.

Artemus was very interested in seeing the funny money that Pidge had obtained. He pulls out his magnifying eye glass and examines the money.

"Well, it's definitely counterfeit although they've done a pretty good job of copying." He puts down his eye piece and looks at Pidge. "You say you got this at the dress shop?" Pidge nods. "Well then it looks to me like they've branched out. Either they're starting to get a little more confident or someone is starting to get greedy."

"What do we do next, Mr. Gordon?"

He waves his hand. "Artie, please. Find Bess and get ready for tonight. I think we're going to have get acquainted with the Duchess."

Bess stopped in a shop that specialized in trinkets and such. Walking around looking at items, she wasn't paying attention to where she was going. She collided with someone and the both nearly fell. The gentlemen helped her to her feet.

Bess'Sir, I am so sorry, I was intent on looking for a gift for my father, please accept my apology.'

Man'Miss, it was my fault, may I make a formal introduction, I'm Duke
Alberto Ranier of Gora.' Then he kissed her hand.
Bess'I'm Jennifer Sheffield, I'm visiting in town with my father and sister.'
He kissed her hand again.
Duke'My pleasure.'
Bess'Nice to meet you.'
Duke'Miss Sheffield, are you by any chance going to the dinner and ball tonight?'
Bess'Why yes I am.'
Duke'Would you like to be my escort?'
Bess'I think you should as my father first, you can come with me and you can speak with him.'

The duke held out his arm and Bess took it. On the way to the hotel, they ran into Pidge.
Pidge'Jennifer!'
Bess'Yes Frances, this is the Duke Alberto Ranier, this is my sister Frances.'
The duke took Frances hand and kissed it.
Duke'Charmed, very charmed to meet two beautiful sisters.'
Bess' Come this way with us and you can speak to Papa.'

The Duke accompanied them to the hotel to speak with their 'father.'

On my way, Mr. Gor...I mean Artie." Pidge leaves to find Bess.


She peers in different shops without success until she comes to a cute little trinket store. There she finds Bess speaking with animation in her cute little Southern accent to a young man who is well dressed and seemly well educated.


Pidge places her hand on Bess' arm.
"Sister,dear. Daddy wants us to come back now and rest up for tonight. Have you got everything you need?"

Bess looks at Pidge and then back to the young man who smiles at her. He is obviously quite taken with this pretty little Southern belle.

Bess smiles back. She just loves this attention and is quite effective in maintaining it.

"Yes, Francis, I do believe that we're all settled. This young man, Alberto is it? (she bats her eyes a little) has been most helpful. Thank you, Alberto." She holds out her hand and he rushes over to hold it and raises it to his lips.

"You are most welcome, Miss Sheffield." He looks very happy and a little nervous at meeting and speaking to such a pretty, young woman of means.

"Uh yes. Thank you...Alberto. Come on, sister. Daddy is waiting."

"Francis, darling. This young man wants to come meet Daddy. He is going to the ball tonight and wishes to be my escort."

Pidge's eyes widen a little. "Oh, he does? Well then. Let's go find...Daddy."

Pet left the train from the side entrance, not wanting anyone to see her in her disguise. She isn't as good at disguises as she is explosives but she did her best. Hiding her long hair was hard but she'd managed it.

She strode down the streets of town toward the seamier side of the tracks and entered what looked to be the roughest saloon on the street. If anyone would know what's going on in this town on the wrong side of the law it would be these people.

Pet entered the saloon and walked to the bar. The barkeep passed her the beer she ordered and she turned around leaning against the bar surveying her surroundings.

She wandered through the saloon as if whe were headed for a back table listening to the conversations at the tables as she passed. One conversation in particular peaked her interest and she chose a table next to them.

"This damn ink ain't gonna wash off..." one unsavory character was saying to his companion.

"Yeah, I know and they want us to find more guys for this job? Ain't gonna happen." Pet took this opportunity to get her foot in the door.

"I'm lookin fer work. What's the job?" Pet asked interrupting them the men looked her over, liking what they saw in the rough and tumble person before them.

"Depends...what kin ya do?"

"You name it I'll do it or I find out how." The men laughed.

"You ain't one of them ones what's skittish bout doin work that ain't so legal like are ya?"

"Nope. Fact if I get to git around the law I'm all for it."

Pet moved to their table and had a bottle brought over as they discussed the job. The one called Mark was the one in charge of hiring the new workers his boss needed and he hired Pet on the spot. They were intrigued by a lady that dressed like no lady and could drink like a fish. She told them she had a place to stay and they could send her messages through a friend at the Diamond Tiger. At least this way my partner and Jeremy can find out what's going on.

Pet left the saloon to return to the train and gather some things she would need. She left a note for her supervisors, certain James would come unglued that she didn't clear her actions with him first but oh well, he'll get over it.

She stopped in the lab and took some things for her "just in case" bag and left gordon a note explaining her changes, hoping he had a better temperment than James. She grabbed her bags and left quietly out the back entrance.

Kit followed the young man to the general store and up the stairs to his parent’s room. He knocked on the door and entered his mother was sitting next to the bed using a cloth to try and cool the fever.

“Ma, this is Miss Montgomery she has come to help. Doc won’t be back for another week.”

Kit stepped over and smiled warmly at the woman “Nice to meet you ma’am, I work for a Doctor back home, I may be able to help until your doctor returns.”

The older woman nodded as she stood Kit caught her when she stumbled she looked at the young man “Samuel, I assume that there is an Ice house in town somewhere I need you to bring back some ice.” He nodded and left she helped the older woman to lie down and she examined them.
Samuel returned quickly with some ice and placed it in the water basin. “I have some more down stairs in the box.”

“Good we may need it before morning.” She shook her head there was no sign of an infection lung were clear it was a high fever and rapid heart rate. She was sitting quietly after she sent Samuel to bed when she heard a knock on the door. She stood and opened it Jim stood looking at her “How are they?”
Kit didn’t say anything she just went back to them and applied more cold compresses “This is the strangest thing I have ever seen.”
“What did you find out?”
“The Money was first passed by the Frankum’s here to the bank. Then it begins popping up all over town.”
There was another knock at the door and Jim answered it the sheriff walked in.
“Sorry to bother you Miss Montgomery, but there is another case of fever in town. The Doc has headed to Thortonville for a case there and won’t be back just yet another Doctor is two days ride from here.”

“We will need to wake Samuel”
“I am already awake Miss Montgomery.”
“Stay with your Folks Sam, I will be back soon and keep the cold compresses on them”
“Yes Ma’am”
Kit picked up her things and followed the Sheriff Jim was right behind her and once he caught up he whispered to her “Do you know what you are doing?”
She looked at him hard for a moment “Yes.”

Artie had also found some of the counterfeit money at the local saloon. He returned to the hotel suite to wait for his 'daughters'.

Bess and Frances came through the door with a man in tow.
Bess'Duke Alberto Ranier, meet my father Charles Sheffield.'
Artie'Glad to made meet you.'

The duke shook Artie's hand.

Duke'Mr Sheffield, I know we have not all been properly introduced, but I met your daughter Jennifer this afternoon. I would like to ask your permission if I could escort her to the dinner and dance tonight that Arthur Lovelady is giving.'

Artie paused for a moment and looked at Bess. Bess gave him the signal to say yes.

Artie'Yes, you have my permission.'
Duke'I'll pick her up at six.'
Artie'That'll be fine sir.'
Duke'Thank you for letting me take her, it was a pleasure to meet both your daughters and you.'

The Duke gave a slight bow and left.

Bess gave Artie the information that the duke was the duchess who'd been giving that counterfeit money all over town. That's why she said she'd go. Artie agreed. They all went to their rooms for a little rest before the evenings event.

Thinking quickly Pet changed her direction and headed for Captain's Rock. They needed to bring those agents up to speed anyway and sending a telegram could put them in danger.

Pet arrived in town and headed for their hotel. when she asked the clerk the whereabouts of her boss (sorry can't remember his name no time to look it up deal with it lol) the clerk rolled his eyes in disgust. Pet explained that his second ranch he owns not far from there in a neighboring twon had an emergency and she needed to speak to him and didn't have the time to change into proper attire. The clerk todl ehr where he was, she thanked him and left.

Pet entered the habadashery shop and strode over to her boss. That disguise may fool most people but not me, you can change your looks but you can't change your eyes, I'd know those eyes anywhere cant they hire decent blue eyed men in this outfit?She tapped him on the shoulder and he turned to look at her.

"What are you doing here and dressed like that?" He whispered harshly.

"Uh, sir, there wasn't time to change there been a probelm at your other ranch ranch and they sent me since the wires are not in workign order." Pet pulled Artie away from the clerk in oder to speak to him privately.

"What is gonig on and why do you look like a refugee from the worst saloon in town?"

"Don't get bent, Artemus. I'm just doing my job. Mr. Pike told me to be a drifter and I'm dressed like one get over it. Anyway you need to know that Apple, Mr. Pike and I are in Thortonvill and counterfeit money is there as well."

"I got a job working with the counterfeiters I start tomorrow. That's why the getup. I can move freely between towns and I can carry any messages. It wouldn't be wise to use the telegraph you never know who works for these people." Artie nodded thinking that lat least this agent can think.

"So how do we get in tough with you? Are you sure you can handle this alone? I've done this kind of undercover work before and the people you're dealing with are rutthless." Artie eyed her waiting for her reaction.

"Pfft, these guys are a walk in the park compared to the guys I know back home. I have some things wtih me I carry on me at all times if things get out of hand."

"You can contact me through Mr. Pike or Apple at the Diamond Tiger where I guess Apple is going to be working. I can go there anytime."

"Things? What sort of things?"

"Just some little blowie upies I invented. When you make it bakc to the train I left some on your lab, which I had to rearrange a little to accomodate some of my things. You know you really need to update that place." Pet stared at him.

"What? You rearranged MY lab? You had no right..."

"Oh stow it for later, Mr. Gordon I don't have a lot of time here. I rode very far out of my way to give you this information. Besides I had to make room for the solid mitro and some chemicals that cant be stored near some of yours. Just check the place out I left you a note." Pet turned to leave then turned back.

"Sir, I reccommend you check on that 'ranch' problem as soon as you can and sir...lighten up you old coot." Pet smirked as she turned and left heading back to Thortonville.

Pidge and Bess went to the side room to change into something a little more comfortable. When they stepped back into the main room, Artie was there peering over the counterfeit money.

"You know, I've always had this theory about printed money. Look how the lines criss cross here. (he holds up his magnifying eye glass for the girls to see).

"And there.." (he holds it up again for them to see)

"Well, it takes a certain amount of craftsmanship...and..the right tools...and...the right kind of paper. Ingredients for the perfect recipe. You have to get all of them just right for this to work.

Now, only a few people would have the right talent and expertise to pull this off. The question is where did they get the paper? Huh? Not so easy. Can't just go into any old supply shop. (he waves his hand in the air). You want to know what my theory is?"

Pidge and Bess just stand there amazed. "I do, for one."

"Yeah, what are you getting at?"

Artie, happy to have their full attention, proceeds. "There's only one place to get paper like this."

Pidge has a brainstorm. "The same place the government gets their paper and ink from."

"Exactly and do you know where that is? Just 15 miles south of here. In a little town called Thortenville."

"Well, what do you want to do next, Artie?"

Artie looks steadily at the two of them. "We go to that ball tonight and start the shmooze."

Pidge and Bess look at each other and smile knowingly.

Jeremy and Apple make their way to the Diamond Tiger in Thortonville. Jeremy is dressed in an ill fitting pin stripe suit, with a bowler hat, a carnation in his buttonhole, and spats. A whispy mustache, and slicked back hair under his hat rounds out his disguise. Apple is made up, not too heavily, but more than a proper lady of the time should be. Her skirts are a tad too short, and her cleavage is prominently displayed thanks to a tight corset. She wears cheap earrings and a costume beaded necklace. She follows Jeremy, staying about one step behind him, which would give the appearance of he being superior to her. They enter the establishment and Jeremy asks to see the proprietor.

A buxom redhead (henna treated of course) of advanced age approaches Jeremy. She knows the type...no money, but a big mouth. "What kin i do fer ya' mister?"

Jeremy smiles broadly and makes it a point to stare at her appreciatively. Apple stands behind him, taking in her surroundings under a bored facade.

"Why I was hoping that I could line up some dance work for my niece here, Miss...?" When the lady of the house doesnt tell him her name, he clears his throat and continues. "ahem, well yes, anyway, my niece is a fine dancer, and she is between jobs at the moment, and i told her that I would help manage her dancing career. For a small fee of course, managers have to survive too, now don't they?" He gives a smarmy laugh and touches the woman's arm. This pique's the womans attention, that and the mention of money.

"Let's go on in this here room, the three of us, and decide if theres an opening in my floor show..." Lucky Lou (the womans name) leads Apple and Jeremy into a private parlor off the main dance hall to discuss business.

Kit walked into back of the saloon and up the stairs to the barkeeps room. They walk in to see him on his bed and a young woman next to him. Kit smiled at her and Jim was surprised at the bed side manner she had. Not the harsh woman he had meet earlier.

“My name is Miss Montgomery, How long has he been like this?”

“All day I called for the Doc when he got worse. His name is Jacob.”

Kit examined him and turned to Jim “just like the others, I would suggest that you head back to the train.We don’t know what’s causing this.”

“No I will stay in town if I am more than likely already infected as are you.” Kit nodded and instructed the young woman to continue the compresses and she walked outside and across the street when the sheriff came up. “We have another person down and a wire from doc says there is an out break in Thortonville.”

Kit looked at him and saw the church at the end of town and spoke “We can use the church as a makeshift hospital this way we can keep the sick isolated from the others.”
Kit made her way to the church lit some lanterns as the sun was setting and two of the local women in town offered to help and they made pallets on the floor as the sheriff and his deputy along with Jim and Samuel they brought in those who were ill. Kit was afraid this was going to be a long night. Once everyone was settled Jim looked at Kit “I should wire Captain’s ridge and warn Artie and the others not to come into Miner’s corner or Thortionville.”
Kit was checking on the Frankums and nodded she then looked up “Jim, tell them if they start feeling ill to get back here.” He nodded.

Jim wired Artie using his undercover name and wired Jeremy letting them know he also wired Washington. It wasn’t long before he received the reply it simply stated “She knows what she is doing listen to her.”

He was headed back to the church when he saw the sheriff helping another person to the church

Outside thortonville in a run down shack on an old homestead a woman sits next to the fireplace stirring a pot....She would giggle ever so often even though she was by herself. This was going to work... she didn’t mind helping her sister play the part of a Dutchess because she knew the truth her revenge would be sweet... she let out a loud laugh and pick up the pot carrying it over to a table she strained it. Her sister had no idea that the final wash to age the counterfit money carried a deadly secret. She had warned her sister to wear gloves when dealing with the money and as long as she followed this advice she would safe, the virus could only be transmitted by the money. She grinned and went back to the fire.

Bess and Pidge rest for a short while. Pidge lays on the bed with her hands tucked behind her head thinking. She asks Bess if she can handle this Alberto guy tonight. Maybe she can find out where he gets his money. At least what his cover is.

Bess says no problem. She's handled his type before. She can do it tonight.

Pidge is going to scout out the Duchess and/or her three daughters to see if they're in on it.

After an hour, they rise and prepare for the dance. It takes both of them to dress the full look and hide their derringers, minor blowee uppees and knives.

The man made his way into Captain's Ridge and was able to get a room just down from the suite that Artie,Bess and Pidge occupied. Oh this was going to be easy, real easy. They'd already finagled him an invitation to the dinner and ball. He bathed, dressed and shaved looking at the picture he'd been given again. Yes, the resemblence was remarkable. He'd have those agents talking before the night was over.

Jeremy has struck a deal for his niece Fleur(Apple) with the dance hall proprietress. Apple had to display her dancing skills to Lou (short for Louella) and a small handfull of men that she dragged in from the street, to see if Apple was worth hiring. Luckily they were not permitted to touch, because many of them were ready for a woman's touch! Jeremy carried a walking stick and was ready to use it without a moments hesitation to protect his partner.

Of course he had seen her in action a few times before, she had knocked out men twice her size more than once. She had a reputation back in DC. Crabapple they called her, remembering that made him smirk...Crabapple...he shook his head at the memory of that assignment.

Jeremy escorted Apple to her room upstairs, reminding her of what their signals were, and telling her that he would always be near in case of trouble...she was not classed as a working girl within the establishment yet, but if the customers liked the looks of her, she could have some trouble.

Duke Alberto made his way down the hall. Dressed in tails, he carried two bouquets of flowers, plus a box of cigars. He knocked on the door. Artie opened the door and Alberto gave a slight bow.

Duke'Mr. Sheffield, this are few you.' Duke handed Artie a box of cigars.

Hearing Alberto come in, Bess and Pidge checked their apperance in the mirror. Bess was wearing a midnight blue gown and Pidge was wearing a burgundy colored gown. They both had their hair up and had on all the approprate jewlery as well and hidden weapons. They were ready.

Pidge and Bess stepped out and the vision of them took both Artie and Alberto's breath for a moment. They both looked so beautiful.

Alberto handed each lady a bouquet. They quickly put them in water. Then Artie put his arm out and Pidge took it. Alberto put his arm out and Bess took it. They made their way out of the hotel to the dance.

The man from down the hall saw them leave. He gave them a head start and headed to the dance himself. Dressed in a top hat and tails he wouldn't stand out in the crowd.

Arriving at the ball, they dismounted from their carriage. Artie holding his hand out to help Pidge and Alberto helping Bess.

As they enter the mansion, the ladies give their shawls and the men their hats to the man at the door.

Artie gives him his card and they are announced.

The ballroom was crowded and Artie headed one way while Bess,Pidge, and Alberto went to another end of the room. Alberto was going to introduce his cousin, Prince Antonio of Monaco to Pidge.
