    Unrevised OCR Result after cropping the edges:


    I THE WAGON AND THE ELEPHANT / 299
    i As they drank he told them of his trip to Santa Fe, the dust, the Co-
    manche, the good times along the road, the great money to be made in
    western trade. ‘But I’m for O1·egon,’ he said brightly. ‘Catch a ship home
    ` and write my book, Travels in the Great West, with slaughter on every
    — page. How do you speH your names?’

    , He was an exhausting young man, two years older than Levi but a
    whole world brighter. When he inspected the gear Levi had assembled
    for the trip west, he was shocked. ‘You’ve overlooked the one thing you
    need most,’ he said.
    ‘A.~-•L..- -»-¤i

    ruiuuici gill]!
    ‘Fie on guns. Everyone carries too many. But the hat. The hat!’ He
    said that the one thing the traveler needed was a broad-brimmed hat so
    wide that the sun could not reach his lips. ‘You walk on those prairies for
    five months, with the sun beating down every dav, and vour lips burn

    right ott. Madame, you simply must get yourself two stinbonnets, be-
    cause if you lose one and allow the sun to strike those beautiful lips . . ."
    His manner irritated Levi, because he well knew that Elly’s lips were
    not beautiful. In fact, there was little about his wife that anyone in his
    right mind could call beautiful, and he was perplexed by Seccombe’s
    obvious insincerity. However, the man did appreciate horses, and recog-
    nized that the grays were superior. ‘Hold out, Zendt,’ he counseled. ‘In
    this town you can get four hundred apiece for that group. But I would
    sell the Conestoga, if anyone makes an offer. Too heavv.’

    Seccombe was captivated by Levi’s Melchior Fordncy rifle, and ar-
    ranged a test-firing with Captain Mercy and Sergeant Lykes. The men
    set up targets and tired each other’s rides. Mercy had an expensive Bos-
    ton weapon, Lykes a standard issue from the Harper’s Ferrv arsenal,

    and Seccombe a good English gun; but all agreed that Zendt’s Lancaster
    rifle was the easiest handling of the lot. ‘When you decide to sell it, I’m
    your man,’ Seccombe said, balancing the beautiful weapon.
    ‘I’m keeping it,’ Levi said.

    ‘On the plains you’ll find your Hawken to be the better riHe,’ Captain
    Mercy said. ‘I carry two of them}
    ‘He’s right,’ Seccombe agreed. ‘On the Santa Fe trip I used my Eng-
    lish gun for antelope, my Hawken for trouble. You’ll do the same}

    From his previous stay in Independence, Oliver Seccombe knew
    everyone and helped the Zendts purchase their last-minute needs; baking
    powder, the extra lead for bullets, the dried beef. ‘You’ll get damned
    tired of bacon,’ he predicted. And when all was in readiness he took
    them aside and said, ‘I’ve studied you two. You’re Hne people. Why don’t
    we make it a team to Oregon?’

    ‘We’ll need more,’ Levi said, so they approached Captain Mercy.
    ‘We’d like to join up with you and Lykes, if we may} Seccombe said.
    ‘I’d be honored,’ Mercy said. ‘But I’m not going all the way to Oregon}
    ‘You could help us get started right,’ Seccombe said, ‘and at Black-

    The app is improving since I first go it; one thing that I would like to see is an automatic spell checker. Once the OCR is done, go through and have it spell check the text. Also, maybe a little better interface for removing graphics off the page. Maybe display the page and use your finger to place an opaque mask over the graphic parts. Something like that . . .

    Thanks!

    It has been spell checked:eek:

    But problem noted, that is what we can improve next time.

    Good suggestion! Will think about this one.
