She is well even to wantonness, since wishing to prove the swiftness of her horses she ran over the daughter of the paraschites Pinem. Noble-hearted as she is, she herself carried the sorely-wounded girl to her house." "She entered the dwelling of the unclean." "Thou hast said." "And she now asks to be purified?"

"The princess," replied Pentaur, "has left Paaker, the king's pioneer, behind in the temple to conduct the leeches to the house of Pinem." The grave high-priest smiled and said. "Paaker! to attend the daughter of a paraschites." Pentaur half beseechingly and half in fun raised his eyes which he had kept cast down.

During this conversation two men had been busily occupied, in front of the paraschites' hut, in driving piles into the earth, and stretching a torn linen cloth upon them. One of them, old Pinem, whom we have seen tending his grandchild, requested the other from time to time to consider the sick girl and to work less noisily.

"Pentaur came in with Nebsecht," he exclaimed, "and they are intimate friends. Where was the leech while I was staying in Thebes?" "He was taking care of the child hurt by Bent-Anat the child of the paraschites Pinem, and he stayed there three days," replied Gagabu. "And it was Pinem," said Ameni, "that opened the body of Rui! Now I know who has dimmed Pentaur's faith.

"Do you know the dwelling of Pinem the paraschites?" asked Paaker. "What do you want with him?" "That is no concern of yours," retorted Paaker. "Lout!" exclaimed the captain, "left face and forwards, my men." "Halt!" cried Paaker in a rage. "I am the king's chief pioneer." "Then you will all the more easily find the way back by which you came. March."

The three companions had labored on as far as the hovel of the paraschites Pinem, but here they were forced to pause, for guards drove back the crowd to the right and left with long staves, to clear a passage for the procession as it approached. "See, Rameri," said Bent-Anat, pointing out the little yard of the hut which stood only a few paces from them.

What is the man's name?" "Pinem." "There will be nothing to be done with him," muttered the student, "however who knows?" With these words he rose, and opening a tightly closed flask he dropped some strychnine on the nose and in the mouth of the rabbit, which immediately ceased to breathe. Then he laid it in a box and said, "I am ready." "But you cannot go out of doors in this stained dress."
