I am rather inclined to think that denting was done when I did my lone-hand portage at Rock Island.
It is because of all these things that Barry had preferred to make this particular photographing trip a lone-hand one.
The influence of this lone-hand way of playing the game extends very far.
He actually quitted his cell (for the only occasion on record) and started on a lone-hand raid against his adversaries stronghold.
Whatever the cause, it was plainly enough to be seen that the heavy knot had not cracked the lone-hand Kid's spine.
Whatever his innermost emotions may have been, his expression gave no hint that the mouthings of the lone-hand Kid had sunk in.
