They have been very well brought up." "What do you call them?" "This one is Prince, on the left, and the others are Queen, and King, and Knave. I call him Knave because he's always scheming, trying to get out of his share of the work, and I make him walk on the plowed land, too." "That serves him right," the boy declared. "What's your name?" "Why what's yours?" "Wilson." "Wilson what?"

At any rate, our hero succeeded perfectly well in breaking up the greensward; and by the time that the moon was a quarter of her journey up the sky the plowed field lay before him, a large tract of black earth, ready to be sown with the dragon's teeth.

An instant later a cannon shot plowed the dust between the two lines of men. "They've turned a cannon loose. Watch out," Clarke called through the darkness. A second time and a third the lantern glowed, and each time a cannon ball crashed through a nipa hut beside the little company, or threw a shower of dust about the place.
