What d'yer say? Will we chance it?" She looked up doubtfully toward the unknown land above. "I dunno, will we?" "Skinny an' Chuck, they said the Interpreter give 'em cookies an' told 'em stories too." "Cookies, Gee! Go ahead I'm a-comin'."

"Blamed if I know " Old Heck said uncertainly, stopping before he finished the sentence. He understood what Skinny meant and just that had been worrying him. He had reached the point where he could not endure the thought of going back to the old arrangement of day and day about with Parker in the enjoyment of the widow's society.

Alas! how soon their weakness tells them very soon! Will they not be carried in an open bier up those long flights of steps all hers cut in the rocky sides of overlapping rocks, to the cemetery, darkly shaded by waving cypresses? The ground is hers, the rocks, the steps, the stones, the very flowers that brown, skinny hands will sprinkle on their bier all hers.

Afterward, when it got flowing into the creek bottom and spreading out over the fields below, I could see how it wouldn't flow into that hole. But you can see for yourself, if you look at the map, that in the first rush it must have done that. Gee, I'm no civil engineer, but anyway, I could see that.

"They put two fellers in the jug for a month for talking like we are.... In solitary," whispered Kid. "But, Kid, I haven't got the guts to try anything now." "Sure you have, Skinny. You an' me's got more guts than all the rest of 'em put together. God, if people had guts, you couldn't treat 'em like they were curs.

"She was rather pretty, I think, wasn't she?" said Kitty musingly, as they strolled up and down the platform waiting for the train. "She was awfully skinny," said Dan.
