A CHANGE OF ATMOSPHERE

Hughie surveyed his hands in a reminiscent fashion. They were serviceable members, and had pulled their owner through many rough places. At present the palms bore the mark of the Orinoco's coal-shovels, and there was a great scar on one wrist where Hughie had incautiously touched a hot bearing. There was also an incision in the middle knuckle of the right hand, caused by the impact of Mr Gates' front teeth on an historic occasion. There were other and older marks, and most of them had some interesting story attached to them. But of course Joan did not know this. To her they were large, unsightly, un-manicured hands-only that and nothing more. Hughie sighed. All his old assets seemed to have become liabilities, somehow.
" Aren't they a scandal, Hughie ?" Joan repeated.
"I suppose they are, Joey," said Hughie, coming out of his reverie. "Right O! I'll get them seen to. I don't suppose they're ever likely to be much use to me again," he added in a depressed tone, " so they might as well be made ornamental. I'll go and consult Sophy Fullgarney about them when I get back to town."
" Who's she? " said Joey quickly.
" Manicurist - before your time," said Hughie briefly, pleased to feel that he could give points to his ward in knowledge of something. "Any more requirements, Joey?"
