Usage examples of "dade".

They looked up with casual interest as Dade and Calumet entered, favored them with quick, appraising glances, and then resumed their talk and laughter.

Half way to it, Dade following him, he halted, for the voice of a man who sat at a table reached him.

He left Dade standing at the bar looking at him wonderingly, and made his way slowly to the table where Taggart sat.

Taggart was drinking when Calumet reached his side, and Dade stood tense, awaiting the expected clash.

He turned and walked to Dade, who had been watching him with wrath and astonishment.

He waved a hand behind him, with the other he was pushing Dade before him toward the door.

On the morning following his visit to Lazette he sat on a piece of heavy timber which he and Dade had lifted a few minutes before to some saw-horses preparatory to framing.

Armed with a scratch awl and a square Dade was at the other end of the timber, his hat shoved back from his forehead while he ran his fingers through his hair as though pondering some weighty problem.

Betty, but at the same time every smile that she had given Dade the night before had caused some strange emotion to grip him.

Besides, he knew that an attack on Dade would be resented by Betty, and he felt a strange reluctance toward further antagonizing her.

There were few words spoken between them during the following hours of the morning, though several times Dade caught Calumet watching him with a puzzled, amused smile in which there was a sort of slumbering ferocity.

When she turned from him and walked over to Dade, speaking to him in a low voice, he could not have told which affected him most, his rage against himself or his disappointment over her abrupt leave-taking.

After dinner Calumet went out again to his work, apparently carefree and unconcerned, if we are to omit those thoughts in which Dade and Betty figured, Dade watched him with much curiosity, for the incident of the day before was still vivid in his mind, and if there had been.

But along toward the middle of the afternoon Dade became so interested that he forgot all about Taggart, and was only reminded of him when looking up momentarily he saw Calumet sitting on a pile of timber near the ranchhouse, leaning lazily forward, his elbows resting on his knees, his chin on his hands, gazing speculatively into the afternoon haze.

He ignored Dade, giving his attention to Taggart, who was now near the bunkhouse.
