There is no Kentuck to « apostrophise the finger -which the new-born

offspring of Cerakee Sal had, in a. spasm of pain, caught for a moment and held fast; no /philosophical Oakhurst to advise in naming the -. little stranger; no Man^o'-war Jack to lilt a . lullaby in an awkward endeavor to coax The vXuck to Bleep. i~ These well-remembered figures have been Replaced by familiar melodramatic types set |'in ^.'narrative which depicts the reckless life ipt the Golden West.
