excerpt from book:

THE LANDLOPER
i
IN THE DUST OP THE LONG HIGHWAY
flE man who called himself Walker Farr
plodded down the dusty stretches of a
country road.
He moved leisurely. He neither slouched
like a vagabond nor did he swing with a
I stride which indicated that he had aim in
life or destination in mind. When he came under arching
elms he plucked his worn cap from his head and stuffed
it into a coat pocket which already bulged bulkily against
his flank. He gazed to right and left upon the glories of
a sun-bathed June morning and strolled bareheaded
along the aisle of a temple of the great Out-of-Doors.
He was young and stalwart and sunburnt.
A big, gray automobile squawked curt warning behind
him and then swept past and on its way, kicking dust
upon him from its whirring wheels.
He gave the car only an indifferent glance, but, as he
walked on, he was conscious that out of the blur of im­
pressions the memory of a girl's profile lingered.
A farmer-man who had come to the end of a row in a
field near the highway fence leaned on his hoe-handle
and squinted against the sun at the face of the passer-by.
Then the farmer shifted his gaze to the stranger's clothing
