PART III - CHAPTER IV
DOMESTIC LIFE AT THE 'RAM'

awry, seemed like some cruel cartoon. She spoke a few thick words to me. George asked her if she felt all right, or should he rub her. She turned her old eyes slowly to him. '
` My leg-my leg a bit,' she said in her strange guttural.
He took off his coat, and pushing his hand under the bedclothes, sat rubbing the poor old woman's limb patiently, slowly, for some time. She watched him for a moment, then without her turning her eyes from him, he passed out of her vision and she lay staring at nothing, in his direction.
`There,' he said at last, `is that any better then, mother?'
`Ay, that 's a bit better,' she said slowly.
`Should I gi'e thee a drink?' he asked, lingering, wishing to minister all he could to her before he went.
She looked at him, and he brought the cup. She swallowed a few drops with difficulty.
`Doesn't it make you miserable to have her always there?' I asked him, when we were in the next room. He sat down on the large white bed and laughed shortly.
'We're used to it - we never notice her, poor old ;ranma.'
` But she must have made a difference to you-she must make a big difference at the bottom, even if you don't know it,' I said.
`She'd got such a strong character,' he said musing, '-she seemed to understand me. She was a real friend to me, before she was so bad. Sometimes I happen to look at her-generally I never see her, you know how I mean-but sometimes I do-and then-it seems a bit rotten-'
He smiled at me peculiarly. 'It seems to take the shine off things,' he added, and then, smiling again with ugly irony, 'She 's our skeleton in the closet.' He indicated her large bulk.
The church bells began to ring. The grey church stood on a rise among the fields not far away, like a handsome old stag looking over towards the inn. The five bells began to play, and the sound came beating upon the window.
