when we returned and broequite dark by
the time we were halfway home.
The night closed in dark and foggy,
with a spatter of rain now and thenners
but the road was familiar, and we
were acquainted with most of the
landmarks. Neither of us had much
to say, but Abner drove the car reck

We tore up a long incline to the sum

hill. The road on either side was
bordered with thinly scattered yiong
oak trees that thrived in the sandy
soil. It was a had bill, for it d,..-e i' -

of a metal cap and a tinkling clinki as
the silver chain dropped and the cap
struck the tlask. Then Ablner's irop
