Old Timer was an experienced prospector who had searched for Kerium and other valuable substances on several different planets.
He was on New Texas during a particularly dry spell for finding Kerium. While riding his Covered Wagon through Fort Kerium he witnessed the kidnapping of Judge J.B. McBride by what appeared to be two masked Prairie People and Marshal BraveStarr chasing them.
Later on, Old Timer visited Handlebar's Trading Post for a glass of Sweetwater. There, he reminisced about similar trouble between humans and natives on another planet in the Kayflux Galaxy. Because the humans were in the minority on that planet, they were the ones being blamed anytime something went wrong. This tought the Old Timer to 'never judge a thing unless you've slithtered a mile in it's trail". Old Timer then proceeded to ask Handlebar if it was true that BraveStarr 'was sweet' on Judge J.B. (Kerium Fever)
