Floyd Vanderlıp. An Eldorado king, worth a couple of millions. Simple, elemental, almost childish in his emotions. But a brave man, and masculine; a man who has done a man's work in the world. Has caressed more shovel-handles than women's hands. Big-muscled, big-bodied, ingenuous-faced; the sort of a man whom women of the right sort can tie into knots. Loraıne lısznayı. A Hungarian, reputed to be wealthy, and to be travelling in the Klondike for flpleasure and love of adventure. Past the flush of youth, and with fair success feigning youth. In the first stages flof putting flesh upon her erstwhile plumpness. Darkeyed, fla flashing, dazzling brunette, with a cosmopolitan reputation earned in a day when she posed in the studios of artist-queens and received at her door the cards of cardinals and princes.
