"I can set you to work in a minute. First thing of all, you fix your screen doors; let's keep the fly family out of the store and we'll kill those already in here. You commence on the screens, Mr. Drugg, while I tackle that other window." About the time school was usually out, Janice removed her apron and the other marks of her toil, and put on her hat and coat.

Now that they were in the room both men became conscious of another sound besides the ladies' voices a very peculiar sound. It also came from behind the screen. They both heard it, and showed, by the puzzled looks they cast at one another, that neither could make out what on earth it was. It consisted of a succession of little rustles, followed by little thumps on the floor.

"And you think him more better for me?" asked Yuki San, still perplexed. "You bet I do!" said Merrit with conviction. "Take my word for it and don't forget." "I no forget," she said. A sliding of the screen and a call from the court-yard announced the arrival of the jinrikisha men, who had come for the baggage. Merrit thrust back his half-finished breakfast. "By Jove!

"Yes, I see now, thank you; now I will go to sleep good-night." I awoke the next morning quite recovered from my illness of the day before, and was out of the cabin before Mrs Reichardt, who still remained behind the screen which she had put up after I had gone to sleep. It was a beautiful morning, the water was smooth, and merely rippled with a light breeze, and the sun shone bright.

But if all goes well, a vessel may pass through Magellan's Straits without discerning any sign of human life, the savages and their canoes lying hidden beneath the leafy screen of overhanging boughs. But most of them are quite naked.

She felt grateful to her husband for making no remark, though the only time she had been within a church since her illness had been at their wedding, he only gave her his arm, and said she should sit in the nook that used to be his in the time of his lameness; and a most sheltered nook it was, between a pillar and the open chancel screen, where no eyes could haunt her, even if the congregation had been more than a Saturday summer evening one.

I ought not to speak to you of such things, my dear. No one has ever mentioned anything so dreadful in my presence: my dear husband used to screen me so carefully from the painful side of life. Where there is so much that is beautiful to dwell upon, we should try to ignore the existence of such horrors.

"Gone to tell the minister, I'll be bound!" murmured Callandar. "'Twill be a scandal in the kirk. I'll lose all my five patients. Horrid little bird!" Smiling, he drew himself from the embrace of the faintly shining water and retiring to the willow screen began to dress with that virtuous leisureliness which characterises those who rise before their fellows.

"All this may have been coincidence, Breck, but we'll find out pretty quick now," the computer remarked when the flying vessel was nearing the third check-station. "Unless I'm all out of control we'll check in almost fourteen seconds minus on W41, and we may not even find him on the center block of the screen." When he plugged in W41 was on the block, but was in the extreme upper right corner.

"I do not care to talk on a subject so painful," concluded the girl. "However painful, you may be compelled to talk," retorted the young man in a tone of exceeding vexation. "I cannot consider it just for a woman to screen her lover, when he has several murdered victims to answer for." "Your insinuations are wholly unjust, Mr. Vane." "I hope they are.
