"Well, I told him to go to the devil; and the fellow took offence, you know." "H'm odd, too," said Harry. "Why should he take offence at such a simple remark?" "Don't know, I'm sure," said Ashby; "but there it is, you see. However, that makes no difference. I've defied him and threatened him." "Threatened! Why?"

"I suppose you have felt that in your own case," said Aglaya. "Yes, I have," replied the prince, quite unsuspicious of any irony in the remark. "H'm well, at all events, I shouldn't have fallen asleep here, in your place. It wasn't nice of you, that. I suppose you fall asleep wherever you sit down?" "But I didn't sleep a wink all night.

"A year ago was on the streets, to put it plainly; since then has been getting her living at laundry-work." "H'm. Name?" "Ida Starr." Mr. Woodstock had been gazing at the toes of his boots, still the same smile on his face. When he heard the name he ceased to smile, but did not move at all. Nor did he look up as he asked the next question. "Is that her real name?" "I believe so."

"We are getting near the heart of the mystery." "H'm," said Gatton, "I'm not so sure. The deeper we go the darker it gets. A man has been scouring the neighborhood all day in quest of the carter who delivered the crate to the docks, but so far without results.

"Nor will it till fifty years more of civilization have passed over the town. It took a waggon and four horses to get it here." "H'm. It looks as if you were living on capital." "O no, I am not." "So much the better. But the fact is, your setting up like this makes my beaming towards you rather awkward." "Why?" An answer was not really needed, and he did not furnish one.
