WINTER CRUISE

Since they did exactly the same thing every day, and she knew very well what that was, the question was enraging. The captain's heart sank. He briefly told the doctor what he thought of him.
" Now, no German, please," said Miss Reid archly. "You know I don't allow that, and why, Captain, did you give the poor doctor that sour look? It's Christmas time, you know; peace and good-will to all men. I'm so excited about tomorrow evening, and will there be candles on the Christmas tree?"

He stood there, looking so funny, as if he was quite embarrassed, so I said: `Thank you all the same for asking me,' and then I said `Good night, pleasant dreams' and shut the door."
