It was a shot at a venture, said without the least idea of its truth; but before the words had crossed his lips, he felt with a wild passion of rage and wonder that it was true. "Give it up, you hussy!" he shrieked, with a yell of fury, his face convulsed with sudden rage, thickly and with sputtering lips. "Tozer!" cried his wife, flinging herself between them, "take your hands off the child.

The ludicrousness of the thing was heightened by the nervous solemnity immediately preceding. Men beat their neighbors on the back in instant comradeship of convulsed, rollicking jubilation. "Always leave 'em laughing when you say good-by!" Morrison advised the chap whom he was manhandling.
