"I might ask you the same, young man," replied the other. "Few there are who visit the pits other than the dead, except my

The fourth excerpt represents the element of Earth. It speaks of physical influences and the impact of the unseen on the visible world, and is drawn from The $30,000 Bequest and Other Stories by Mark Twain:
