He made the exclamation which usually accompanies the former emotion in an Indian, and, calling in a low
voice, soon drew a companion to his side.
The man slept on, indifferent to showers of hail and intervals of brightness, to sunshine on his face and shadow, to the paltering lumps of dull ice on his body and the diamonds into which the sun changed them, until the sun was low
