Orden, sir, I'm trying to keep respectful, but it's a hard thing. I've been reading the evening papers. There's an article, signed `Paul Fiske', in the Pall Mall. They tell me that you're Paul Fiske.

I am thinking of replacing them tomorrow morning, if I can get Mr. Orden to help me." "How long has the car been there in its present condition, then?" the Colonel enquired. "Since about five o'clock yesterday afternoon," she replied. "You don't think it possible that it could have been out on the road anywhere last night, then?" "Out on the road!" she laughed.

The roots of a child's teeth undergo a certain amount of disintegration before it is ready to give place to the permanent teeth.
