The Sign of the Stranger

(1904)
A novel by

 
 
Excerpt from The Sign of the Stranger The shabby stranger seated himself familiarly in a nook beside the wide open chimney of the tap-room, and stretched out his long thin legs with a sigh. " I want something to eat; a bit of cold meat, or bread and cheese - anything you have handy - and a glass of beer. I'm very tired." The village publican, scanning the stranger's features keenly, moved slowly to execute the command and lingered over the cutting of the meat. The other seemed to read the signs like a flash, for he roughly drew out a handful of money, saying in his bluff outspoken way - "Be quick, mister! Here's money to pay for it." The meal was very nimbly and swiftly placed before him; and then the landlord, with a glance back at me seated in his own little den beyond, turned off the suspicion with a remark about the warmth of the weather.
