passage money was paid. He had in some way lost on exchange in New York,
and the railway fare to Nebraska was more than they had expected.
By the time they paid Krajiek for the land, and bought his horses
and oxen and some old farm machinery, they had very little money left.
He wished grandmother to know, however, that he still had some money.
If they could get through until spring came, they would buy a cow
and chickens and plant a garden, and would then do very well.
Ambrosch and Antonia were both old enough to work in the fields,
and they were willing to work. But the snow and the bitter weather
had disheartened them all.

said Rosamond, turning her head towards Mary, but with eyes swerving
towards the new view of her neck in the glass.
"You mean my beauty," said Mary, rather sardonically.
Rosamond thought, "Poor Mary, she takes the kindest things ill."
Aloud she said, "What have you been doing lately?"
"I? Oh, minding the house--pouring out syrup--pretending to be
amiable and contented--learning to have a bad opinion of everybody."
"It is a wretched life for you."

data provided by the tank crew that drove to ground zero to obtain
soil samples. The intensity decreased to about 2 R/h at 725 meters
from ground zero. Gamma intensities of 0.1 R/h or more were confined
within a circular area extending about 1,100 meters from ground zero
(except in areas of fallout). One week after the shot, the gamma
intensity at ground zero was about 45 R/h. After 30 days, intensities
at ground zero had decreased to 15 R/h, and intensities of 0.1 R/h or
more were not encountered beyond about 365 meters from ground zero.
Gamma intensities of 3 to 10 R/h were found at ground zero three
months after the detonation (1; 19).
