THE TOOL

moors all that day too. Don't you recollect borrowing my trowel? There was something you wanted to bury, a green parrot, I think you said it was. I remember, because it seemed so strange. You came in quite late in the evening, and looked regular knocked up, just the same as last week. It's my belief, sir, that you 've been walking too far.'
I asked for my account and, while she was making it out, I went upstairs to my bedroom. I took down the bound volume from the shelf and turned to the story of the Methodist minister. The illustration at the end was certainly not there, but on close inspection I found that a page was missing. For some reason it had been carefully removed. I turned to the index of illustrations, and saw that the picture, with the words beneath that had so strangely affected me, should have been found on the missing page.

The world, I consider, is governed by God through a hierarchy of spirits. Little Charlie Lovel, by the way, says that he saw the Archangel Gabriel yesterday evening, as he was coming from the bath-room, and for all I know he may be right. It is governed by a hierarchy of spirits, some greater and more wise than others, and to each is given its appointed task. I suppose
