On hearing the shot the hound has harked back; and, at some twenty paces off, brought up beside a huge trunk, where it stands fiercely baying, as if at a bear. The tree is buttressed, with knees several feet in height rising around. In the dim light, these might easily be mistaken for men. Clancy is soon among them; and sees crouching between two pilasters, the man who meant to murder him – Richard Darke as conjectured. Darke makes no attempt at explanation. Clancy calls for none.
A Death’s head could neither flash its eyes, nor cause them to revolve in their sockets. The old story, of like cause followed by like result, must, alas! be chronicled in this case. The man of the Devil prospered, while he of God came to grief. Besides, the predatory creatures have other evidence of its being alive. At intervals they see opened a mouth, disclosing two rows of white teeth; from which come cries that, startling, send them afar. Armstrong, open-hearted, free-handed, indulging in a too profuse hospitality, lived widely outside the income accruing from the culture of his cotton-fields, and in time became the debtor of Darke, who lived as widely within his.

The subject matter of this book very strange. Books related to The Death Shot, a story retold. There are murders with no body, murderers on the run with no evidence against them, murdered persons who are perfectly alive and well, Red Indians who are no such thing, a body which is buried and comes to life again, being dug up by a dog, and all the time against a truly beautiful description of the terrain, and a considerable tenderness towards. the somewhat strange persons who form the cast of this unusual book.
