Excerpt from A Girl of Chicago
Two young men lounged at one of the windows of the Tomahawk Club, one bright spring afternoon in the year 188 - . They were as alike as two peas - cigarettes, cutaway coats, low-cut vests, trousers of the most approved type, just as Skinnem, the tailor, had turned them out for the spring. They had shed their overcoats and come forth radiant at the first chirp of spring, much to the admiration and tender solicitude of all the fair damsels for miles around. As alike as two peas did I say? There was one marked difference. Jack Strainer was possessed of a moustache which, to interest the reader, the average novelist would call dark and silken, but which stripped of poesy was remarkably stiff, wiry and devoid of curl; while Gus Reacher, like Fledgby, was constantly feeling for the whisker which refused to take root upon his pale, flabby face. The two friends were termed swells, but they were by no means fools. They possessed, with all the faults, some of the virtues of their age and city. Jack was a bachelor with a snug little fortune of some thirty thousand dollars, while Gus Reacher was a widower, who had been but a year a benedict. He was what was termed by his friends, "a jolly good fellow," who was head over heels in debt, but who lived remarkably well upon credit.
