Clint obeyed, and for the next ten minutes Amy explained and Clint
demurred, objected and, finally, yielded. In such manner was the plot to
avenge Penny Durkin’s wrongs hatched.

But near the centre of town a cheering sight met their anxious eyes

But near the centre of town a cheering sight met their anxious eyes. A
little man in a white apron was sweeping the doorway of a tiny
restaurant, yawning and pausing at intervals to gaze curiously toward
the approaching travellers. Before they reached him, however, his
curiosity either gave out or was sated, for, with a final tap of the
broom against the doorway, he disappeared. “Suppose,” exclaimed Amy, “he
changes his mind and locks up again!” They urged tired feet to a faster
pace and reached the door. On one wide window was the legend:
“Cannister’s Caf.” The door was closed but unlocked. They opened it
and entered.

“That’s all right,” Clint replied

“That’s all right,” Clint replied. “It wasn’t your fault. Good-bye.
Straight across that field there, you say? How far is it to
the trolley?”

They went on through the woods

They went on through the woods. They were tired now and it was quite
dark under the trees and they made slow progress. Once Clint tripped
over a fallen branch and measured his length and once Amy ran head-on
into a sapling and declared irately, as he rubbed his nose, that he
would come back the next day with an axe and settle matters. At last,
after a silence of many minutes: “We’re doing it, I’ll bet you
anything,” said Amy.

“Oh, you can’t tell,” replied Freer encouragingly. “Come out for
practice tomorrow and see. We’re got a coach here that can do wonders
with beginners.”

“Long,” murmured the other, closing his eyes. “Tell him to–look

The first play went through for two yards on the other side of the line

The first play went through for two yards on the other side of the line.
Then came a criss-cross, with the runner plunging at right guard. Clint
started with the ball and had his man out instantly. The play followed
through for three yards. Again the quarter chose that point and again
the second’s left side made the opening. But, with three to go on fourth
down, a punt was imperative and Martin, the full-back, was called on. As
Martin was a right-foot punter Clint had little to do save get through
and down the field, and the instant the ball was snapped he dashed into
his opponent, beating him by a fraction of a second and upsetting his
balance beautifully. When the sound of boot and leather came Clint was
past the ‘varsity’s backfield and, with Turner but a yard or two in
advance, was sprinting fast. Carmine was playing back in centre, with
Kendall across the field, and it was into Carmine’s territory that the
ball was going. Suddenly Clint saw Carmine start quickly up the field
toward them and guessed that the kick was short. Kendall was heading
across to interfere for the catcher.
