One morning Machecawa stood gazing intently into the fire. His face wore an expression of perplexity. At length he turned to the White Chief, who was explaining a mathematical problem to one of his boys, and said: 鈥淥h,鈥?she said, 鈥淚鈥檓 going to marry Jack here, and be a bargeman鈥檚 wife.鈥? 双色球计算公式99怎么算 "Oh, Mrs. Wright," she said, "I'm so thankful you have come. He's nearly mad with pain. In fact, I think the poor lad is agoin' out of his mind." FROM AN ARTICLE CALLED "HUSTLER WALTON" IN FRATERNITY NEWSPAPER, 1940: "Sam is very sharp on being able to read people and their personalities, and their integrity, and he didn'tmake any mistakes back there picking people, if I do say so myself. Really, back early, one bad managercould have pulled us under. When you're only making $8,000 or maybe $12,000 a year net in a store, itwould have only taken one or two managers who were dishonest to lose the whole company. Sam wouldmeet them in the stores where they worked, and invite them down to look at his stores. You know, he's avery persuasive man; he could charm a bird out of a tree. And he and Helen would have you out to thehouse and serve ice cream, and they'd always ask if you and your family went to church. He was sogood at evaluating and selecting these fellows. He wasn't just looking for store managers. I think he wasselecting people he thought he could go forward with. He was progressive. He knew that he neededsomething, and he was looking for it, and he was getting it every step of the way."We found Claude over in Memphis running a Woolworth store. He was from Muskogee, Oklahoma,and about one-quarter Indian, and he had started with Woolworth out of high school. None of thesefellows like Don or Claude had any college, and they didn't want me hiring any college men. They had theidea that college graduates wouldn't get down and scrub floors and wash windows. The classic training inthose days was to put a two-wheeleryou know, a cart that you carry merchandise oninto a guy's handswithin the first thirty minutes he came to work and get him pushing freight out of the back room. They allcame out of these variety stores with the same background and the same kind of philosophy andeducation. And we looked for the action-oriented, do-it-now, go type of folks. On returning this midsummer he was shocked to find his favourite looking pale and ill. All her good spirits had left her, the roses had fled from her cheek, and she seemed on the point of going into a decline. She said she was unhappy about her mother, whose health was failing, and was afraid she was herself not long for this world. Christina, of course, noticed the change. 鈥淚 have often remarked,鈥?she said, 鈥渢hat those very fresh-coloured, healthy-looking girls are the first to break up. I have given her calomel and james鈥檚 powders repeatedly, and though she does not like it, I think I must show her to Dr. Martin when he next comes here.鈥? Bigourdin waved his great arm. 鈥淗ow am I to know it isn鈥檛 true? How am I to get into the English minds of you and my farceur of a brother-in-law so as to discover why you arrive as an honoured guest at my hotel and then in the wink of an eye become the waiter of the establishment? What am I to say to our friends? They wouldn鈥檛 care a hang (ils se ficheraient pas mal) for your soul. If you are to continue to mix with them on terms of equality they must have an explanation, nom de Dieu, which they can understand.鈥? 鈥淰oil脿 une petite sorci猫re d鈥橝m茅ricaine,鈥?said Bigourdin. 鈥淧if! Paf! and away goes F茅lise on her broomstick.鈥?
