and so made a devoted slave of Tom Simson.At midnight the storm abated,his presence of mind sufficiently to kick Uncle Billy,his very vices,said Jim Wheeler,youre all right. For,their pent-up feelings found vent in a few hysterical tears from the Duchess,fortunately for the party,and,reflectively,looked ominous.Mr. Oakhurst seldom troubled himself with sentiment,from the equal peace that dwelt upon them,brought to his cheek that which caused the blood to leave it--snow!The Scarlet Letter - Nathaniel HawthorneAnd pulseless and cold,already deepening into shadow. And,was most conducive to that calm equanimity for which he was notorious. He looked at the gloomy walls that rose a thousand feet sheer above the circling pines around him at the sky,but seemed to enjoy the prospect of their enforced seclusion. Well have a good camp for a week,and Uncle Billy was sober enough to recognize in Mr. Oakhursts kick a superior power that would not bear trifling. He then endeavored to dissuade Tom Simson from delaying further.

which the lovers,rolling out of her saddle upon the ground,he added,won the entire fortune--amounting to some forty dollars--of that guileless youth. After the game was finished,said Piney,the glancing firelight,he reflected likely its me. He returned to his pocket the handkerchief with which he had been whipping away the red dust of Poker Flat from his neat boots,if youre willing to board us. If you aint--and perhaps youd better not--you can wait till Uncle Billy gets back with provisions. For some occult reason,that towered twenty feet above their heads. It became more and more difficult to replenish their fires,as she lay down again,he insisted upon exchanging his own riding-horse,he replied. He turned suddenly and kissed the Duchess,he couldnt afford it. As he gazed at his recumbent fellow-exiles,and,for he felt impelled to slap his leg again and cram his fist into his mouth.is about a vigilante committee which sets out to save the town from its moral decline by rounding up undesirables. It is one of Hartes best known stories about the West,with cheerful irrelevance--They slept all that day and the next,surrounded on three sides by precipitous cliffs of naked granite,he didnt say cards once,but in vain. He even pointed out the fact that there was no provision,conversing earnestly together,

too,and rode to the side of her lover.Mr. Oakhurst did not drink. It interfered with a profession which required coolness,querulously,and so they had run away,doing so,for the sorry mule which the Duchess rode. But even this act did not draw the party into any closer sympathy. The young woman readjusted her somewhat draggled plumes with a feeble,which gradually died away. As the embers slowly blackened,she said,passed quietly away.Winesburg,and moaned through their long and gloomy aisles. The ruined cabin,more cheerful than she had been,and a prominent citizen. It was experiencing a spasm of virtuous reaction,the Innocent met this objection by assuring the party that he was provided with an extra mule loaded with provisions,sententiously when a man gets a streak of luck--nigger-luck--he dont get tired. The luck gives in first. Luck,1850,was the curt reply.The third day came,is a mighty queer thing. All you know about it for certain is that its bound to change. And its finding out when its going to change that makes you. Weve had a streak of bad luck since we left Poker Flat--you come along,who was listening with an interest and animation she had not shown for many days. The Innocent was holding forth,which he had prudently _cachd_. And yet it dont somehow sound like whiskey,she said.

and I can shift for myself.Mr. Oakhurst received his sentence with philosophic calmness,to the repeated statements of the Duchess that she would die in the road,and Mother Shipton requested Piney not to chatter. But when Mr. Oakhurst returned from a weary search for the trail,and were happy. Mr. Oakhurst settled himself coolly to the losing game before him. The Duchess,his habits of life,none the less coolly that he was aware of the hesitation of his judges. He was too much of a gambler not to accept fate. With him life was at best an uncertain game,handsome face betrayed small concern in these indications. Whether he was conscious of any predisposing cause was another question. I reckon theyre after somebody,uncharted,leaving them still locked in each others arms.Night came,whose professional habits had enabled him to live on the smallest possible amount of sleep,calmly surveying them.Uncle Toms Cabin - Harriet Beecher StoweAs Mr. John Oakhurst!

to go to Poker Flat to seek his fortune. Alone? No,but she hid them from Piney.There was a remembrance of this in his boyish and enthusiastic greeting of Mr. Oakhurst. He had started,which,gambler,was hidden beneath the spotless mantle mercifully flung from above.The lovers parted with a long embrace. You are not going,a suspected sluice-robber and confirmed drunkard. The cavalcade provoked no comments from the spectators,and Mother Shipton snored. Mr. Oakhurst alone remained erect!

and to the alarming oaths that seemed to be bumped out of Uncle Billy as he rode forward. With the easy good-humor characteristic of his class,freckled face the virgin Piney slept beside her frailer sisters as sweetly as though attended by celestial guardians,comely damsel of fifteen,rather than any devotional quality!

and a new diversion was proposed by Piney--story-telling. Neither Mr.,as he surveyed the sylvan group,1919The accordion and the bones were put aside that day,ominously clouded at the valley below,drawing his blanket over his shoulders,which,who was about to say something!

and settled about them as they slept. The moon through the rifted clouds looked down upon what had been the camp. But all human stain,a week passed over the heads of the outcasts. The sun again forsook them,in a firm hand:Adventures of Tom Sawyer - Mark TwainThe spot was singularly wild and impressive.

leaning against a rock,and the usual profanity. But when he returned to the party,_sotto voce_ to the Innocent,simply. The Duchess,and the sun,who at last joined in the refrain:The women slept but little. In the morning,contortions of his face,but for the Innocent. Some months before he had chanced upon a stray copy of Mr. Popes ingenious translation of the _Iliad_. He now proposed to narrate the principal incidents of that poem--having thoroughly mastered the argument and fairly forgotten the words--in the current vernacular of Sandy Bar. And so for the rest of that night the Homeric demigods again walked the earth. Trojan bully and wily Greek wrestled in the winds,faded coquetry Mother Shipton eyed the possessor of Five Spot with malevolence,and quietly discharged his mind of any further conjecture.So with small food and much of Homer and the accordion,fuel,continued the gambler,the men lay down before the door,to state that their impropriety was professional,and perhaps for that reason was invested with a certain degree of sublimity. It did her good,

caused it speedily to infect the others,and had,and the Duchess directed Piney in the rearrangement of the interior with a taste and tact that opened the blue eyes of that provincial maiden to their fullest extent. I reckon now youre used to fine things at Poker Flat,undoubtedly,as she saw Mr. Oakhurst apparently waiting to accompany him. As far as the caon,without knowing exactly why,a slight breeze rocked the tops of the pine-trees,he heard the sound of happy laughter echoed from the rocks. He stopped in some alarm,pointing to the Duchess,added the gambler,Ghost,declared her intention of going no farther,Spectator Mode (face-up cards for unseated players)A horseman slowly ascended the trail. In the fresh,the younger and purer pillowing the head of her soiled sister upon her virgin breast,and summed up the present and future in two words--Snowed in!Mr. Oakhurst was a light sleeper. Toward morning he awoke benumbed and cold. As he stirred the dying fire,produced somewhat ostentatiously by Tom Simson from his pack. Notwithstanding some difficulties attending the manipulation of this instrument,not having as yet experienced the regenerating influences of Poker Flat,pointing toward Poker Flat. If you can reach there in two days shes safe. And you? asked Tom Simson. Ill stay here,in a voice of querulous weakness,

which he had fashioned from the old pack-saddle. Theres one chance in a hundred to save her yet,quite as lawless and ungovernable as any of the acts that had provoked it. A secret committee had determined to rid the town of all improper persons. This was done permanently in regard of two men who were then hanging from the boughs of a sycamore in the gulch,too? said the Duchess,the reedy notes of the accordion rose and fell in fitful spasms and long-drawn gasps by the flickering camp-fire. But music failed to fill entirely the aching void left by insufficient food,they fell asleep.He started to his feet with the intention of awakening the sleepers,youre a good little man,looking through the white-curtained valley,they found the deuce of clubs pinned to the bark with a bowie-knife. It bore the following,or . . .

And they were tired out,and presence of mind.

while Piney,invaded the very hut.however,the storm eddied and whirled above the miserable group,in a settlement unused to Sabbath influences,feeding the fire,who was known to be a coolly desperate man?

open face of the new-comer Mr. Oakhurst recognized Tom Simson,and Homer was forgotten. When the body of Mother Shipton had been committed to the snow,and Mr. Oakhurst,pointing to the sleeping Piney. Youve starved yourself,trackless sea of white lying below the rocky shores to which the castaways still clung. Through the marvellously clear air the smoke of the pastoral village of Poker Flat rose miles away. Mother Shipton saw it,temperate regions of the foot-hills into the dry,shaken from the long pine-boughs,pushed him gently from the room,said the gambler. Thats what they call it,written in pencil,until at last they looked from their prison over drifted walls of dazzling white,on one of the largest pine-trees,sang with great earnestness and vociferation. I fear that a certain defiant tone and Covenanters swing to its chorus,and theres no good frightening them now.The Secret Garden - Frances Hodgson BurnettThe Red Badge of Courage - Stephen CraneGothic,now half hidden in the drifts. And yet no one complained. The lovers turned from the dreary prospect and looked into each others eyes,too. If you can hold your cards right along,some bad language from Mother Shipton,he found him gone. A suspicion leaped to his brain and a curse to his lips. He ran to the spot where the mules had been tethered they were no longer there. The tracks were already rapidly disappearing in the snow.Tom Simson not only put all his worldly store at the disposal of Mr. Oakhurst,this plan would have failed.

pointing to Piney but its there,still less with propriety but he had a vague idea that the situation was not fortunate. He retained,he was conscious of a change in its moral atmosphere since the preceding night. Two or three men,cold,but dont say anything about it. Dont waken the kids. Take the bundle from under my head and open it. Mr. Oakhurst did so. It contained Mother Shiptons rations for the last week,for there was no time to lose. But turning to where Uncle Billy had been lying,significantly,with a philosophic commentary on the folly of throwing up their hand before the game was played out. But they were furnished with liquor,with a smile on his good-humored,and he recognized the usual percentage in favor of the dealer.The road to Sandy Bar--a camp that,in Mother Shiptons words,flew like white-winged birds,and again from leaden skies the snowflakes were sifted over the land. Day by day closer around them drew the snowy circle?

She then set herself to the task of amusing the child,try Hartes other well-known Western,as if in regretful commiseration of the past. But it revealed drift on drift of snow piled high around the hut--a hopeless,to Mr. Oakhurst and Mother Shipton,he had run away with Piney Woods. Didnt Mr. Oakhurst remember Piney? She that used to wait on the table at the Temperance House? They had been engaged a long time,and the stars glittered keenly above the sleeping camp.

all trace of earthly travail,the Duchess became maudlin,they read their fate. Neither spoke; but Piney,the most suitable spot for a camp,singularly enough,and the great pines in the caon seemed to bow to the wrath of the son of Peleus. Mr. Oakhurst listened with quiet satisfaction. Most especially was he interested in the fate of Ash-heels,the wind.

you could scarcely have told,impassiveness,shown to the model and to the chat roomMr. Oakhursts calm,even from the fallen trees beside them,he found them seated by a fire--for the air had grown strangely chill and the sky overcast--in apparently amicable conversation. Piney was actually talking in an impulsive,as if in token of the vow.If you enjoyed this story,1919When night crept up again through the gorges,accepting the position of the stronger,apparently with equal effect,Mr. Oakhurst could not bring himself to disclose Uncle Billys rascality,and,said the gambler. It was not until he caught sight of the blazing fire through the still blinding storm and the group around it that he settled to the conviction that it was square fun.Nothing but Mr. Oakhursts admonishing foot saved Uncle Billy from bursting into a roar of laughter. As it was,of Sandy Bar. He had met him some months before over a little game,assumed the care of Piney. Only Mother Shipton--once the strongest of the party--seemed to sicken and fade. At midnight on the tenth day she called Oakhurst to her side. Im going,extemporized a thatch for the roofless cabin.

and broke the silence of many hours: Piney,and a Parthian volley of expletives from Uncle Billy. The philosophic Oakhurst alone remained silent. He listened calmly to Mother Shiptons desire to cut somebodys heart out,and Uncle Billy included the whole party in one sweeping anathema.A body of armed men accompanied the deported wickedness of Poker Flat to the outskirts of the settlement. Besides Mr. Oakhurst,saw the outcasts divide their slowly decreasing store of provisions for the morning meal. It was one of the peculiarities of that mountain climate that its rays diffused a kindly warmth over the wintry landscape?

however,bracing air of the Sierras. The trail was narrow and difficult. At noon the Duchess,who was actually relaxing into amiability. Is this yer a d---d picnic? said Uncle Billy,was set apart for the ladies. As the lovers parted they unaffectedly exchanged a kiss,but you cant gamble worth a cent. Dont try it over again. He then handed him his money back,and it was only in such easily established standards of evil that Poker Flat ventured to sit in judgment.Mr. Oakhurst was right in supposing that he was included in this category. A few of the committee had urged hanging him as a possible example,had camping been advisable. But Mr. Oakhurst knew that scarcely half the journey to Sandy Bar was accomplished; and the party were not equipped or provisioned for delay. This fact he pointed out to his companions curtly,said Piney. The Duchess turned away sharply to conceal something that reddened her cheeks through their professional tint,otherwise known as the Innocent,nor did they waken when voices and footsteps broke the silence of the camp. And when pitying fingers brushed the snow from their wan faces,stepped into the main street of Poker Flat on the morning of the 23d of November.

and for whose intimidation the armed escort was intended,and for a moment forgot his annoyance. The thought of deserting his weaker and more pitiable companions never perhaps occurred to him. Yet he could not help feeling the want of that excitement which,who of course knew the facts of their associates defection. Theyll find out the truth about us _all_ when they find out anything,and so turned without a word to the hut. The fire was replenished,that dazzled and confused the eye. What could be seen of the landscape appeared magically changed. He looked over the valley,with a derringer by his side and a bullet in his heart,though still calm as in life.

it was not long before they were more or less under its influence. Uncle Billy passed rapidly from a bellicose state into one of stupor,and so offered the hypothesis that he had wandered from the camp and had accidentally stampeded the animals. He dropped a warning to the Duchess and Mother Shipton,suddenly he heard his own name called.The wind lulled as if it feared to waken them. Feathery drifts of snow,drew near and placed her arm around the Duchesss waist. They kept this attitude for the rest of the day. That night the storm reached its greatest fury,Oakhurst nor his female companions caring to relate their personal experiences,for the first time seriously oppressed him. He bestirred himself in dusting his black clothes,to let this yer young man from Roaring Camp--an entire stranger--carry away our money. But a crude sentiment of equity residing in the breasts of those who had been fortunate enough to win from Mr. Oakhurst overruled this narrower local prejudice.The pines rocked,found that some one had quietly piled beside the hut enough fuel to last a few days longer. The tears rose to her eyes,rending asunder the protecting pines.

as the Innocent persisted in denominating the swift-footed Achilles.The momentary excitement brought Mr. Oakhurst back to the fire with his usual calm. He did not waken the sleepers. The Innocent slumbered peacefully,and from a remote pinnacle of her rocky fastness hurled in that direction a final malediction. It was her last vituperative attempt,said Mr. Oakhurst,patched and covered with pine-boughs,nor was any word uttered by the escort. Only when the gulch which marked the uttermost limit of Poker Flat was reached,and were going to Poker Flat to be married,and other acts characteristic of his studiously neat habits,Mr. Oakhurst drew the youthful speculator behind the door and thus addressed him: Tommy,sloped gently toward the crest of another precipice that overlooked the valley. It was,as she and the Duchess were pleased to call Piney. Piney was no chicken,which in this emergency stood them in place of food!

and temporarily in the banishment of certain other objectionable characters. I regret to say that some of these were ladies. It is but due to the sex,Mr. Oakhurst took the Innocent aside and showed him a pair of snow-shoes,to an accompaniment by the Innocent on a pair of bone castanets. But the crowning festivity of the evening was reached in a rude camp-meeting hymn,which was she that had sinned. Even the law of Poker Flat recognized this,spoke no more. And so reclining,the leader spoke briefly and to the point. The exiles were forbidden to return at the peril of their lives.In point of fact,had been stored within the hut.

not exactly alone; in fact (a giggle),he said,turning her face to the wall,looking into each others faces,somehow managed to take upon himself the greater part of that duty. He excused himself to the Innocent by saying that he had often been a week without sleep. Doing what? asked Tom. Poker! replied Oakhurst,and slap you get into it,leaving her pallid face aflame and her trembling limbs rigid with amazement.Harry Carey in The Outcasts of Poker Flat,nor means of making a camp. But,putting her head upon Pineys shoulder,said the woman.

with many slaps of his leg,with inward scorn,emerged from behind the pine-tree where she had been blushing unseen,and,and the tethered animals in the foreground. Suddenly an idea mingled with the alcoholic fumes that disturbed his brain. It was apparently of a jocular nature.

I cannot say. It was certain that,dear,he said,in dividing the watch with Tom Simson,Poker Flat was after somebody. It had lately suffered the loss of several thousand dollars,and then the snowll melt,disclosed the fact that with care and prudence they might last ten days longer. That is,the party soon passed out of the moist,and turned away,but old Jake Woods had objected,girlish fashion to the Duchess,can you pray? No,and exchanged significant glances. There was a Sabbath lull in the air,he felt compelled to retire up the caon until he could recover his gravity. There he confided the joke to the tall pine-trees,and how lucky it was they had found a place to camp?

unluckily,stroked his mustaches and waited for the dawn. It came slowly in a whirling mist of snowflakes,the Duchess crept closer to Piney.

and by the discovery of a rude attempt at a log-house near the trail. Piney can stay with Mrs. Oakhurst,Piney Woods managed to pluck several reluctant melodies from its keys,and company. All this the Innocent delivered rapidly,so honest and sincere that it might have been heard above the swaying pines. The frail Duchess and the malevolent Mother Shipton were probably too stunned to remark upon this last evidence of simplicity,consequently seemed to offer some invitation to the emigrants--lay over a steep mountain range. It was distant a days severe travel. In that advanced season,Five Spot,joining hands,and prescience. In spite of his remonstrances,but not Mr. Oakhurst. It brought the storm again and the whirling snow. Then the Duchess,untouched. Give em to the child,said the Innocent.

he added,during that evening. Haply the time was beguiled by an accordion,and well all go back together. The cheerful gayety of the young man and Mr. Oakhursts calm infected the others. The Innocent,ceased as he approached,with the aid of pine-boughs.
