The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain I. Discover Moses and the Bulrushers (pg 1) Huckleberry Finn is kept by a widow who provides for his schooling and life necessities but he hates being mannered and wants to runaway all the time. The widow’s sister – “a tolerable slim old maid” – teachers him the Bible and Huck soon finds it pointless to learn about “dead people” but would only stand all these miseries because he wants to join Tom Sawyer’s gang in the robbing business (2). II. Our Gang’s Dark Oath (pg 4) Tom Sawyer calls Huckleberry Finn out and they are almost caught by the slave Jim, who is famous “because he got stuck up on account of having seen the devil and been rode by witches” (6).
A very boring job. There is a special boat house down on the shoreline where an experimental hydrofoil is being built. Billy is desperate to see what it looks like, but it is not until one night when he saves the boat house from a fire, that he is moved to the boathouse to work there. Over the next few weeks Billy prevents several more attacks on the boat house, and then one last attack on the main house where the Bells lived. Billy eventually discovers who the saboteur is, and learns that friends are a much safer bet than any poker game.
Walter wants it so he could become owner of a Liquor store, whereas Beneatha wants to go to go school to become a doctor. Mama gives him the remaining $6,500 of the insurance money, telling him to deposit $3,000 for Beneatha’s education and to keep the last $3,500. Walter agrees, but we come to find out when Bobo arrives that he did not put the money in the bank for his sister that he used all the money for the liquor store and that Willy Harris run off with it all. When this happens during the play it is tough to feel bad for Walter because throughout the play he has not been good with money from when his son asks for 50 cents and he gives a dollar and then has no money, or by him constantly spending money on alcohol. This also drives a very big wedge between Walter and Beneatha because she was entitled to some of the money that was lost during the business transaction.
