When reading a peice of writing, one may tend to make inferences without even noticing. An inference is a conclusion reached on the basis of evidence and reasoning. The short story "The Interlopers" is a good story to make inferences on. An example quote from this text would be "And a long series of poaching affrays and similar scandals had enbittered the relationships between the families for three generations. The neighbor feud had grown into a personal one since Ulnch had come to the head of his family." It can be inferred from this quote that Ulnch might have killed his feuding neighbors.

I most definitively agree on what you have said about the short story The Interlopers, because I inferred many things through out that story. In fact, I can also relate when you stated that a person can make inferences with out realizing we are making them.
