a blackjack bargainer

From the open back door of the office a well-worn path meandered across the grassy lot to the court-house. Goree watched this solemn equipage , as it drove to his door, with only faint interest; but when the lank driver wrapped the reins about his whip, awkwardly descended, and stepped into the office, he rose unsteadily to receive him, recognizing Pike Garvey, the new, the transformed, the recently civilized. The daily bouts at cards had arranged itself accordingly, and to him was assigned the ignoble part of the onlooker. The village of Laurel was their compromise between Mrs. Pike lifted his squirrel rifle off the hooks and took a shot at them at long range on the chance of their being revenues. On the front seat sat a gaunt, tall man, dressed in black broadcloth, his rigid hands incarcerated in yellow kid gloves. However Martella Garvey's heart might be rejoicing at the pleasures of her new life, Blackjack had done his work with her exterior. Her stout form was armoured in a skintight silk dress of the description known as "changeable," being a gorgeous combination of shifting hues. His befuddled brain was hopelessly attacking the problem of the future maintenance of himself and his favourite follies. Garvey's preference for one of the large valley towns and Pike's hankering for primeval solitudes. Missis Garvey likes yo' old place, and she likes the neighbourhood. The last man to drap was when yo' uncle, Jedge Paisley Goree, 'journed co't and shot Len Coltrane f'om the bench. I reckon you are mistaken about that. To the Coltranes, also, but one male supporter was left -- Colonel Abner Coltrane, a man of substance and standing, a member of the State Legislature, and a contemporary with Goree's father. Now no direct heir of the Gorees survived except this plucked and singed bird of misfortune. On the back seat was a lady who triumphed over the June heat. He had been a borrower and a sponge, and it seemed that if he fell no lower it would be from lack of opportunity. Fortune, passing over many anxious wooers, made a freakish flight into Blackjack's bosky pockets to smile upon Pike and his faithful partner. It was so still that Goree, reclining in his chair, distinctly heard the clicking of the chips in the grand-jury room, where the "court- house gang" was playing poker. The mountaineer took the chair Goree offered him. She always seemed to hear, whatever her surroundings were, the scaly-barks falling and pattering down the mountainside. Goree, that sech things suits me -- fur me, give me them thar. The feud had been a typical one of the region; it had left a red record of hate, wrong and slaughter. For so long a time the sounds in her ears had been the scaly-barks dropping in the woods at noon, and the wolves singing among the rocks at night, and it was enough to have purged her of vanities. Trade was not. The best folks hev axed her to differ'nt kinds of doin's. Thus it happened that while the disreputable last of the Gorees sprawled in his disreputable office, at the end of his row, spurned by the cronies whom he had gorged, strangers dwelt in the halls of his fathers. There, also, was the birthplace of the feud between the Gorees and the Coltranes. Garvey threw his slouch bat upon the table, and leaned forward, fixing his unblinking eyes upon Goree's. Goree was at a loss to account for the visit. There had come from "back yan'" in the mountains two of the strangest creatures, a man named Pike Garvey and his wife. Released, he popped back into his hole like an angry weasel. He had carved her countenance to the image of emptiness and inanity ; had imbued her with the stolidity of his crags , and the reserve of his hushed interiors. Laurel yielded a halting round of feeble social distractions comportable with Martella's ambitions, and was not entirely without recommendation to Pike, its contiguity to the mountains presenting advantages for sudden retreat in case fashionable society should make it advisable. And thus, at length, it was decided, and the thing done. Pike began to talk of new shoes, a hogshead of tobacco to set in the corner, a new lock to his rifle; and, leading Martella to a certain spot on the mountain-side, he pointed out to her how a small cannon -- doubtless a thing not beyond the scope of their fortune in price -- might be planted so as to command and defend the sole accessible trail to the cabin, to the confusion of revenues and meddling strangers forever. We was pore as possums, and now we could hev folks to dinner every day. Pike Garvey was little known in the settlements, but all who had dealt with him pronounced him "crazy as a loon. Thar's somethin' you got what me and Missis Garvey wants to buy. But that ain't what I come fur to say, Mr. The rickety little office, built of red brick, was set flush with the street -- the main street of the town of Bethel. Far below it the turbid Catawba gleamed yellow along its disconsolate valley. Once the "revenues" had dragged him from his lair, fighting silently and desperately like a terrier, and he had been sent to state's prison for two years. After a drink of corn whiskey from a demijohn under the table, he had flung himself into the chair, staring, in a sort of maudlin apathy, out at the mountains immersed in the summer haze. A cloud of dust was rolling, slowly up the parched street, with something travelling in the midst of it. The broken gambler had turned drunkard and parasite; he had lived to see this day come when the men who had stripped him denied him a seat at the game. In the cabin far up on Blackjack's shoulder, in the wildest part of these retreats, this odd couple had lived for twenty years. They had neither dog nor children to mitigate the heavy silence of the hills. One more chance -- he was saying to himself -- if he had one more stake at the game, he thought he could win; but he had nothing left to sell, and his credit was more than exhausted. The Rogerses, the Hapgoods, the Pratts and the Troys hev been to see Missis Garvey, and she hev et meals to most of thar houses. But Yancey Goree was not thinking of feuds.

A Blackjack Bargainer. Society is what she 'lows she wants, and top trumps football legends a blackjack bargainer getting' of it.

His word was no longer to be taken. Their descent upon Laurel had been coincident with Yancey Goree's feverish desire to convert property into cash, and they bought the old Goree homestead, paying four thousand dollars ready money into the spendthrift's shaking hands.

We been recognized, Missis Garvey says, by the best society. Garvey's bosom still survived a spot of femininity unstarved by twenty years of Blackjack. The "gang" had __new__ python him out.

The vehicle deflected from the middle of the street as it a blackjack bargainer Goree's office, and stopped in the gutter directly in front of his door. Most of the quality folks in the mountains hev 'em. Missis Garvey hev studied all about feuds. She had grown fat and sad and yellow and dull. She sat erect, waving a much-ornamented fan, with her eyes fixed stonily far down the street.

Pale-blue, unwinking round eyes without lashes added to the singularity of his gruesome visage. A little breeze wafted the cloud to one side, and a new, brightly a blackjack bargainer carryall, drawn by a slothful gray horse, became visible. The Settles and the Goforths, the Rankins and the Boyds, a blackjack bargainer Silers and the Galloways, hev all been cyarin' on feuds f'om twenty to a hundred year.

The June day was at its sultriest hour. His face was too long, a dull saffron in hue, a blackjack bargainer immobile as a statue's.

But there's somethin' we need we ain't got. He could not help smiling, even in his misery, as he thought of the man to whom, six months before, a blackjack bargainer had sold the old Goree homestead. His law business was extinct; no case had been intrusted to him in two years.

But Adam reckoned without his Eve. Goree frowned ominously. Missis Garvey and me, we come f'om the po' white trash.

But when the means came, she felt a rekindled desire to assume the perquisites of her sex -- to sit at tea tables; to buy futile things; to whitewash the hideous veracity of life with a little form and ceremony. The little white patch he saw away up on the side of Blackjack was Laurel, the village near which he had been born and bred. Henry T he most disreputable thing in Yancey Goree's law office was Goree himself, sprawled in his creaky old arm-chair. Soon wearying of his ostracism , Goree had departed for his office, muttering to himself as he unsteadily traversed the unlucky pathway. Somewhere in Mrs. Bethel dozed in the tepid shade. The treading out of that path had cost Goree all he ever had -- first inheritance of a few thousand dollars, next the old family home, and, latterly the last shreds of his self-respect and manhood. The sheriff, the county clerk, a sportive deputy, a gay attorney, and a chalk-faced man hailing "from the valley," sat at table, and the sheared one was thus tacitly advised to go and grow more wool. To speak of his feud to a feudist is a serious breach of the mountain etiquette. Above it the mountains were piled to the sky. Later on, they offered the Garveys an enormous quantity of ready, green, crisp money for their thirty-acre patch of cleared land, mentioning, as an excuse for such a mad action, some irrelevant and inadequate nonsense about a bed of mica underlying the said property. Bethel rested upon the foot-hills of the Blue Ridge. She could always hear the awful silence of Blackjack sounding through the stillest of nights. Of late, old friends of the family had seen to it that he had whereof to eat and a place to sleep -- but whiskey they would not buy for him, and he must have whiskey. I cyan't say, Mr. Happily he missed, and the unconscious agents of good luck drew nearer, disclosing their innocence of anything resembling law or justice. She says it ought to been put in the 'ventory ov the sale, but it tain't thar. These things represented to him the applied power of wealth, but there slumbered in his dingy cabin an ambition that soared far above his primitive wants. So she coldly vetoed Pike's proposed system of fortifications, and announced that they would descend upon the world, and gyrate socially. When the Garveys became possessed of so many dollars that they faltered in computing them, the deficiencies of life on Blackjack began to grow prominent. The man from "back yan'" knew it as well as the lawyer did. They who cast doubts upon Garvey's soundness of mind had a strong witness in the man's countenance. One day a party of spectacled, knickerbockered, and altogether absurd prospectors invaded the vicinity of the Garvey's cabin. I sold out to you, as you yourself expressed it, 'lock, stock and barrel.
