The stranger, who was a large, stout-looking man, heavily bearded, paused before the door that led into the bar-room, and peeped inquisitively in; seeing a small group sitting around the table, he walked very leisurely toward them, introducing himself in a frank, easy style. "A good evening, gentlemen, to you all." The company, who were earnestly engaged in conversing, hardly noticed his entrance, but when he spoke, they instantly paused and greeted the new-comer with a look plainly expressive of surprise, curiosity and anger.
