Excerpt from the book:

Ritchie MacDonald was
broke for the second time that year,
for the fifteenth time since he had
left Princeton seven years ago; and this time
he was broke for keeps.

There was no doubt of it in his mind.
He had worked all summer and right into
the winter in a coal prospect beyond the border,
near Femie, British Columbia, in the heart of
the Kootenais. Four dollars a day, five a
week for board, and no liquor allowed in camp!
So he had saved practically all his pay and had
come south, to Spokane, with several hundred
dollars jingling pleasantly and invitingly in his
mackinaw.

And then! Well, it had been the usual
thing. And this morning he had awakened, in
the rear room of Tom Williams's saloon, with
a splitting headache, a dark-brown taste and ten
cents in his pockets.

Therefore he had begged Tom Williams to
stake him to breakfast, which Tom, who had
once been an officer in the Royal English Ma-
riners, had done in regal style. He had then
bought himself a cigar with his last ten cents,
and had finally disposed of his overcoat for
three dollars to an itinerant lumberjack who
had just drifted in from an Idaho camp.
