ACROSS THE MOORS

IT really was most unfortunate.
Peggy had a temperature of nearly a hundred, and a pain in her side, and Mrs. Workington Bancroft knew that it was appendicitis. But there was no one whom she could send for the doctor.
James had gone with the jaunting-car to meet her husband who had at last managed to get away for a week's shooting.
Adolph she had sent to the Evershams, only half an hour before, with a note for Lady Eva.
The cook could not manage to walk, even if dinner could be served without her.
Kate, as usual, was not to be trusted. There remained Miss Craig.
`Of course, you must see that Peggy is really ill,' said she, as the governess came into the room, in answer to her summons. `The difficulty is, that there is absolutely no one whom I can send for the doctor.' Mrs. Workington Bancroft paused; she was always willing that those beneath her should have the privilege of offering the services which it was her right to command.
`So, perhaps, Miss Craig,' she went on, `you would not mind walking over to Tebbit's Farm. I hear there is a Liverpool doctor staying there. Of course I know nothing about him, but we must take the risk, and I expect he'll be only too glad to be earning something during his holiday. It's nearly four miles, I know, and I'd never dream of asking you if it was not that I dread appendicitis so.' ,
`Very well,' said Miss Craig, `I suppose I must go; but I don't know the way.'
`Oh, you can't miss it,' said Mrs. Workington Bancroft, in her anxiety temporarily forgiving the obvious unwillingness of her governess's consent.
