'But a clean woman, and respectable, except for her foul mouth,' said
Mrs. Goodall. 'Keeps to herself like a bull-dog. Never lets anybody come

'Where Bob gets the money for his drink from is a mystery,' said Jinny.
'Chaps treats him,' said Harry.
'Well, he's got the pair of frightenedest rabbit-eyes you'd wish to see,'

'You'll have to be getting ready, Fanny,' said Mrs. Goodall.
'I'm not going tonight,' said Fanny abruptly. And there was a sudden halt
