"I don't suppose I had any right to be angry at seeing that happen, but I was. So I did what I did on the spur of the moment.

His dream intuitively conveyed the further knowledge that the surrounding country had been prospected for a few floaters, and the creek, lower down, rooted-up for bare tucker, while this little spur of made ground, between the prongs of the Y, remained intact and there was the jeweller's shop.

My walk was a melancholy one, feeling myself weaker at every step and not very able to speak. This surely cannot be fancy, yet it looks something like it.
