     "I've lost my knife. I reckon I better go and find it."

     Tom said, with quivering lips and halting utterance:

     "I'll help you. You go over that way and I'll hunt around by the spring. No, you needn't come, Huck--we can find it."

     So Huck sat down again, and waited an hour. Then he found it lonesome, and went to find his comrades. They were wide apart in the woods, both very pale, both fast asleep. But something informed him that if they had had any trouble they had got rid of it.

 

     They were not talkative at supper that night. They had a humble look, and when Huck prepared his pipe after the meal and was going to prepare theirs, they said no, they were not feeling very well--something they ate at dinner had disagreed with them.
