Every night Gory tried to get the money, which fact was known to Blanky, who never slept with more than one eye shut.
When their tracks divided, Gory said to Blanky:
“Look a-here! Where the deuce do you keep that stuff of yours? I’ve been tryin’ to get holt of it every night when you was asleep.”
“I know you have.” said Blanky.
“Well, where the blazes did you put it?”
“Under your head!”
“The —— you did!”
They grinned, shook hands, and parted; and Gory scratched his head very hard and very often as he tramped along the track.
