The man was still practically a cripple-he must have been badly mangled-and it is hard work fighting for time in a country whose motto, as regards human as well as other machinery, is:-"Never repair !

But for all that, the incident had definitely altered his course for him, or at any rate was destined to send him round by an alternative route.
