THE CRAYFISH

you want to interrogate that dumb scantling, you won't get anything from its head, from that old clotheshorse's mouth," lie chuckled, his natural good temper restored by his own small joke. "Its feet, at my end, are the only thing that might help us. But, of course, I've questioned them:"
He bent down and looked at the undersurfaces of the ladder's ends, now visible. "I''see, as true and firm as you could wish or, rather, as we could not wish." He shook the ladder's struts and tried the steps. "No play there. These ladders are new and of good workmanship:"
Dr. Wendover turned. "Then they were purchased lately:"
" Yes, Dr. Smirke had bought them a couple of months ago. He told the man who provided them, and whom he'd dealt with for some years, that he was tired of those dangerous lean-to ladders and had nearly had an accident or two by their slipping on this smooth floor. This year, he said, he'd have safe ladders before he started decorations for the Christmas party. And they are safe."
The Doctor assented, "He was certainly a careful man." That did not, however, take his attention from the ladder head at his feet. Finally, as Sergeant Skillin was strolling to the door, he roused himself to call him back. "You said we shouldn't get anything from this old clotheshorse's mouth. I like your simile, but I venture to differ from you in your dismissal of this witness:"
" Well, you'll have to do the translating and, remember, not to me, your indulgent friend, but to a court and an expensive defending lawyer."
" You'll at least let me rehearse the part in front of you." "Oh, go ahead."
