Why does Wheeler call Smiley the "curiousest man" and what evidence does he give to support this?
The exact quote from the story is:
he was the curiousest man about always betting on anything that turned up you ever see, if he could get anybody to bet on the other side; and if he couldn't he'd change sides. Any way that suited the other man would suit him any way just so's he got a bet, he was satisfied. But still he was lucky, uncommon lucky; he most always come out winner.
