To begin with, Reed Markham of the Georgia Markhams, had never seen it<br />snow until his _Pappy_ sent him north to a finishing school. He came of<br />what has been described as "warm Southern blood" which perhaps<br />partially explained his feeling that northern schoolmates at Seldon<br />Prep were "cold" to him.<br /><br />"No wonder you people have to have steam radiators in your homes!" he<br />had been reported as saying once, when provoked at Yankee coolness.<br /><br />But if Reed, fresh from a land rich in the lore of good old-fashioned<br />hospitality, had felt his sensitive nature react to the more reserved<br />attitudes of those new to him, he had only to remain long enough for<br />cold weather to set in to know that the climate was even icier than the<br />people.<br />

Nick had dropped down on the chair. His furtive gaze went around<br />the room as if it aroused his curiosity, for this was really the<br />first occasion when he had ever graced Hugh's den with his company.<br /><br />When his eyes alighted on the coveted skates Nick's face took on an<br />expressive grin. Then he turned toward Hugh, to say, almost<br />whiningly:<br /><br />"Sure thing, Hugh. I thought mebbe I'd coax you to let me have the<br />skates, if I told you I'd managed to get another half dollar by<br />selling a pair of my pigeons. Here's a dollar and a half; take it,<br />and gimme the runners, won't you?"<br />

The first snowfall Reed had ever witnessed commenced one frigid morning<br />while he was in school. Great, crystal-shaped wet flakes began drifting<br />down, much to his amazement and interest as he gazed from his desk out<br />the window. Yes, he had heard of snow. He had even learned the<br />dictionary definition for it--'ice in the form of white or transparent<br />crystals or flakes congealed in the air from particles of water, and<br />falling or fallen to the earth.' And here it was--in the process of<br />_falling_! A quite strange and beautiful sight, Reed thought, recalling<br />pictures he had seen in news reels of snow-covered country, snow<br />battles and snow slides.

Reed gave no answer. In truth, his heart was pounding like mad. He did<br />not dare venture a comment for fear his voice would quaver. This thing<br />of demonstrating before a crowd he felt to be hostile; schoolmates<br />waiting to ridicule, and in a sport he had attempted to master within a<br />short, concentrated period, had all tended to affect Reed's nerves.<br />Thousands had watched the glider contest and he had not cared. But<br />never had he wanted so much to make good ... to give these swell-headed<br />Northerners a Southern spanking--where it hurt the worst--in their own<br />sport.<br />

They made a whirlwind beginning, and had scored two goals before the<br />visitors began to "find" themselves. This would never do, Hugh<br />determined. He gave his players a signal that called for a spurt,<br />and himself led the way by capturing the puck, and shooting it into<br />the cage of their opponents amidst loud footings of great joy from<br />the loyal and now anxious Scranton rooters.<br /><br />Juggins distinguished himself also immediately afterwards by a<br />lightning play that amazed the Belleville spectators. He dodged all<br />interference and when finally too hard pressed, managed to send the<br />rubber disc across to Dugdale, who continued the good work by<br />shooting it into the charge of Hobson; and, almost before Leonard<br />could try to stop its flight, it had gone with a crash into the cage<br />for the second goal on Scranton's side.<br /><br />Things began to look brighter. If Belleville could play brilliant<br />hockey through the coaching of an efficient instructor, the visiting<br />team knew a few things also, which were calculated to surprise their<br />rivals.<br />
