Pinkerton, F. (n.d.). Five Thousand Dollars Reward. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Chapter 1. THE TRAMP. ?Will you give me a glass of water, please?? A ragged, bearded tramp stood before the door of a cottage near the outskirts of a country village, and propounded this question to a pretty girl who stood in the door. ?In a moment.? The girl disappeared, soon returning with a pitcher. She went to the pump near, and soon had the pitcher running over with sparkling water. ?I will bring a cup.? ?Needn't mind.? The tramp lifted the pitcher and quaffed the water as though he enjoyed it. His eyes were not pleasant as he turned them keenly on the pretty face of the girl. ?Folks at home?? ?No.? ?All alone, eh?? ?Yes; but Ransom will be around soon ? my brother.? The eyes of the tramp glittered. He seemed to delight in reading the fresh young face before him. ?Nobody at home, eh?? he grunted. ?Mebbe I?d better go in and rest a bit. Any objections?? ?Yes. If you are hungry I?ll bring you food out here.? It was a pleasant day, and the sun was warm without being hot, a rare enjoyable day in June. It seemed to the girl that there could be no excuse for a stout man like the one before her tramping and begging through the country.
