Short excerpt: In the Cassowary Club, weary, pallid waiters brought iced drinks to such of the members as were condemned to spend the summer in town.
They drove through a rickety wire-and-sapling gate and across about a mile of bush, and suddenly came on a little slab house nestling under the side of a hill. At the back were the stockyards and the killing-pen, where a contrivance for raising dead cattle -- called a gallows -- waved its arms to the sky. In front of the house there was rather a nice little garden.
