Down the highway, on either side, stood his brave men's horses in the angles of the worm- fence, and two or three horse- holders took a shot at me as I sped in after the man who was bent on reaching the right of his divided force before Quinn should strike it, as I was bent on foiling him.- "The Cavalier", George Washington Cable.
