'Nothing could prevail on me to," she agreed fearfully. She closed the door alter him. When he came back he found that she had returned to her task in the kitchen none the less, in spite of his admonition and her own fear; a bit of conscientious courage which he could not help but secretly admire. "Did you sec any more since I was gone?" "I thought I saw it come back to that hole, but I threw something at it, and it did not come out again." He showed her what the druggist had given him.

He took up a 'poker and plunged it into the crevice at meeting-place of wall and flour that she had indicated, working it vigorously to and fro. She watched a moment. "What are you trying to do'.'" she said coldly. "Why, kill it." he panted. "That is not the way to be rid of them!" Her foot gave a clout of impatience against the floor "You kill one, and there, are ; clo/.en left." She flung down her apron, strode from the room and out to the froir of the house.
