We dined well, as usual, and, equally as usual, Carnacki was pretty silent during the meal. At the end, we took our wine and cigars to our usual positions, and Carnacki having got himself comfortable in his big chair began without any preliminary: "I have just got back from Ireland, again," he said. "And I thought you chaps would be interested to hear my news.

"Why, we shall be regularly roasted or baked, and the cannibals won't have any trouble in cooking us. It's all very well for Dio there. It's his nature to like heat. For us poor white-skinned chaps, it's nothing but downright cruelty." "But I suppose that it won't be always like this," said Bill.

"'Tisn't everybody as 'ud be willin' to do that," she remarked after a pause; "theer's a mony as 'ud sooner spend their brass at th' Thornleigh Arms." Ted privately thought this extremely likely, but he assumed an air of virtuous indignation. "Theer's chaps an' chaps!

That came later on, worse luck. The jolly sprees we used to have in the bush townships, where we chucked our money about like gentlemen, where all the girls had a smile and a kind word for a lot of game upstanding chaps, that acted like men, if they did keep the road a little lively.

"Well, Mr Simple, it might do with some, but many of our chaps would require the dose you mention to be repeated pretty often before it would effect a cure; and what's more, they'd be very willing patients, and make no wry faces at their physic."
