` We wanted the key of his desk,' said my mother.
' Oh-I can find you that-and the will. He told me where they were, and to give them you when you came. $e seemed to think a lot of you. Perhaps he might ha' done better for himself '
Here we heard the heavy tread of the old lady coming downstairs. The doctor went to the foot of the stairs.
`Hallo, now-be careful!' he bawled. The poor old woman did as he expected, and trod on the braces of the trousers she was trailing, and came crashing into his arms. He set her tenderly down, saying: 'Not hurt, are you?no!' and he smiled at her and shook his head.
`Eh, doctor-eh, doctor-bless ye, I'm thankful ye 've come. Ye 'll see to 'em now, will ye?'
`Yes-' he nodded in his bluff, winning way, and hurrying into the kitchen, he mixed her a glass of whisky, and brought one for himself, saying to her: 'There you are'twas a nasty shaking for you.'
The poor old woman sat in a chair by the open door of the staircase, the pile of clothing tumbled about her feet. She looked round pitifully, at us and at the daylight struggling among the candlelight, making a ghostly gleam on the bed where the rigid figure lay unmoved; her hand trembled so that she could scarcely hold her glass. ..
The doctor gave us the keys, and we rifled the desk ' and the drawers, sorting out all the papers. The doctor sat sipping and talking to us all the time.
` Yes,' he said, ' he 's onlv been here about two years. Felt himself beginning to break up then, I think. He 'd been A long time abroad; they always called him "Frenchy."' The doctor sipped and reflected, and sipped again: 'Ayhe'd run the rig in his day-used to dream dreadfully. Good thing the old woman was so deaf. Awful, when a man gives himself away in his sleep; played the deuce with him, knowing it.' Sip, sip, sip-and more reflectionsand another glass to be mixed.
'But he was a jolly decent fellow-generous, openhanded. The folks didn't like him, because they couldn't
