THE BEAST WITH FIVE FINGERS

`Can you hold it all right?'
`Yes, the thing's quite limp; tired out with throttling poor old Peter, I should say.'
`And now,' said Saunders, when he returned with the things, `what are we going to do?'
`Drive a nail through it first, so that it can't get away. Then we can take our time over examining it.'
`Do it yourself,' said Saunders. `I don't mind helping you with guinea-pigs occasionally, when there 's something to be learned, partly because I don't fear a guinea-pig's revenge. This thing's different.'
`Oh, my aunt!' he giggled hysterically, `look at it now.' For the hand was writhing in agonized contortions, squirming and wriggling upon the nail like a worm upon the hook.
`Well,' said Saunders, `you've done it now. I'll leave you to examine it.'
`Don't go, in heaven's name! Cover it up, man; cover it up! Shove a cloth over it! Here!' and he pulled off the antimacassar from the back of a chair and wrapped the board in it. `Now get the keys from my pocket and open the safe. Chuck the other things out. Oh, Lord, it's getting itself into frightful knots! Open it quick!' He threw the thing in and banged the door.
`We'll keep it there till it dies,' he said. `May I burn in hell, if I ever open the door of that safe again.'

Mrs. Merrit departed at the end of the month. Her successor, Mrs. Handyside, certainly was more successful in the management of the servants. Early in her rule she declared that she would stand no nonsense, and gossip soon withered and died.
`I shouldn't be surprised if Eustace married one of these days,' said Saunders. `Well, I'm in no hurry for such an event. I know him far too well for the future Mrs. Borlsover to like me. It will be the same old story again; a long friendship slowly made-marriage-and a long friendship quickly
forgotten.'
