Book Excerpt:
It is the boast of cowboys that they can tell
another puncher at a glance; but they are not alone
in this there are other crafts that leave their mark
and other men as shrewd. A group of mining men
took one look at the smaller man, noting the candle-
grease on his corduroys and the intelligence in his
eyes; and to them the big man was no more than a
laborer or a shift-boss at most and the little man
was one of their kind. Every line in his mobile
face spoke of intellect and decision, and as they
walked it was he who did the talking, while the big
man only nodded and smiled.

They took a turn or two up the street, now drifting
into some clamorous saloon, now standing at gaze
on the sidewalk; and as the drinks began to work,
the little man became more and more animated,
the big man more and more amiable in his assent
and silence.

Then as they passed the crowd of refugees they
stopped and listened, commenting on the various
opinions by an exchange of knowing smiles. An old
prospector, white-haired and tanned to a tropic
brown, finally turned upon a presumptuous opti
mist and the little man nodded approvingly as he
heard him express his views.
