TO*OAY'S SHORT STORY.] Robert Hetheridge, Nonentity. I By HAVEN HILDE. I (ALL RIGRTS RESERVED.) Bobert Hetheridge was one of the world's Bon-entities; lie knew it well. Sometimes he let it trouble him. That was when he wasn't thinking, when he was unphilosophie. He had long recognised his true position among the dwellers upon earth, and at most times seemed pretty well content. There was nothing bright about Bob—he was a just plodder. In sartorial attachments he was negligent; in manner lachrymose; in figure stunted; in position briefly little of most things, much of none; in personal appear- ante unenviable. This is speaking of him as he is on the 14th of November, 18S1. Standing leaning over the iron sides of Holoorc viaauct, and looking down on the road beneath, he owned again that all this was true. One by one he went over the category of his failings and his failures, and: told them all over again to the lions a.t hia side, who made no comment, the matter being no business of theirs. Bob's financial condition this day was very I low. He had just called at a newspaper offioe to see if there was a "turn" for him; there was nothing, and eo time was his own— "my priceless time," he muttered, with a laugh. Very few men owned to bearing Bob any friendship, although fewer still bore ill-will towards him. All laughed at him always, instinctively. Ill-luck was his evil genius, but he was well used to it all by now, being turned thirty years. Please, sir, can you tell me the way to Ludg-ate Hill Station?" Bob turned, half-startled, and faced a child of about twelve or thirteen summers, who atood, with her face all serious and her eyes wide with a vague alarm, waiting for him to answer her. It was a lovely face in its fresh youth, with the cheeks full and slightly' flushed, and crowned with a glory of light brown waving curie, beneath a hat that was prettiness also. For a moment he stood there petrified. Bob bad never had dealings with the softer sex in any size; he had no recollection of mother, sisters he had none; in h's life as yet there had come no woman, neither the want of one. Here was only a little child, yet a strangeness came over him for a moment,. and he could not answer. I have missed my way, and Then he spoke and told her falteringly t.he right direction. "I am going that way," he added, ana ihen he stopped, afraid at his own audacity. But. the child jumped eagerly at the words. "Ohl may I walk with you as far as you jo on my way?" she asked. So the two set off together, he walking awkwardly, and trying to adapt his gait to his companion's, and signally failing. She told him she had oome by herself from Cat- ford to see an uncle in Hat ton-garden, but as she had found her relative was away for some weeks, and the house all empty, she had no alternative but to return home to where she and her elder gieter lived alone. So this artless child, more fit for a rose garden than the great city in which she stood alone, was an orphan, and in her very art ess- noess and simple trust told this quiet, careless- looking man her story. Her name was Bertha. Stanley, and her sister Miilicent earned at type-writing in a City office just sufficient to keep them comfortably. "It was Uncle's birthday, you eee, said little Bertha, as they haiced ere crossing Ludgate-cireus. "And I had a present for him. It wasn't much," she added hesitat- ingly; "only a tobacco pouch. Milly bought it. and I worked the initials. Look-" The child put her hand in the little satohsl ahe carried. Then her face turned white, and she gripped her companion's arm. "It's gone," she cried; "and my purse-l stolen. All around pressed the great c-wding, ? "ushing throng of men and women, and backwards and forwards crashed the 'buses and cabs and other vehicles, but to those two in that moment there was no realisa- tion but of one thing. This world contained but two persons who were face to face with a great calamity. The little face turned whiter still-" ly ticket," she said. Hetheridge, too, had gome white. He pos- sessed but the sum of one penny in hia pocket. And what use was that in the present crisis? His brain was never too quickly get agoing, and this was a case where he was beaten cleamly. At last he spoke. W here does your si&ter work?" he said. "Oh, no, no," the child cried. Alill,, inuct not know, ehe then she stopped as she saw that Milly would ha-ve to know. "I don't remember the name; it is a had one," she added trustfully, looking up at him. It wouldn't matter if I had the ticket. would it?" she --aid, after a second's silence. It was in the purse, and-and-I haven't any money. God help you; no more have I," he blurted Itan and child were facing each other then, white face looking into white face. The child wae the first again to break the silence between them, and she laughed as ô-he spoke- How poor we are," said she. What is to be done?" '• We must walk," he eaid at once, having just dismissed the last of his list of acquaint- ances who would be gentle enough in refusing to loan him a sum of money. Gould you find the way?" she asked, with the colour in her cheeks again. Yes," Bob said, and then once more, this time hand in hand, the two set their faces southwards. Two hours later they arrived at their destination, and Bob was for turning back at once, but his little companion would not agree. You must stop and You must stop and see Milly," she urged imperatively, not knowing that that was the one reason that would drive Bob away. She sa.w him hesitating, and, leaning up, put her arms round his neck and kisaeH him. "Now will you?" she said, and he had promised before he knew it. It was nearly tea-time, and little Bertha set about laying table. Bob, too, helped, and many a laugh did she have at him, and then elumtily he dropped a saucer and broke it. "A chapiter of accidents," she cried. merrily. stooping and picking up the fragments while he stood helplessly looking on. Milly will be just wild with you." But Milly wasn't. She came in tired, yet light-hearted, abont seven o'clock, and little Bertha gravely introduced Bob to her "big sister." Bob blushed as his eyes fell upon the neatly-dressed little fig-ul-e of Millice.it j Stanley. Milly was not pretty or handsome, hut she looked sweet a.id fair enough in Bob's eyes, and he felt something flip down from his heart, and when he went home that evening he confessed that he had never spent a happier day. The story of the loot purse had been told, and all three had laughed merrily at the situation and the circumstances which had forced the two to walk home. Then Milly had very gently, and in a way in which only a woman could succeed, > broached the subject of Bob's return to town and the maiine,r of his getting there. He had shrunk from the idea of Milly lend- ing him money, but his refusal had been over-ruled, and he had compromised by accepting as a loan the exact and the lowest amount which would take him home. On the Saturday he was to come and re-pay hie great debt. Berzha decreed, and he agreed. A new zest seemed now to have come into his life. The careless habits which seemed to have taken too deep a hold upon him to be shaken off were easily uprooted. Luck was in his way next day, for he obtained first news of a big bank robbery, and put the paper for whom he did most work on the track, with the result that another good scoop was made. Bob had promised to find. Tut if possible the date of Mr. Richard Sedgwick's (little Bertha's uncle) return, and on inquiring he discovered that he was due back at his office on the Monday next. Glad at having this news to tell them on Saturday, he turned cowards the Viaduct, thinking of the strange circumstances of yesterday, and pic- turing the two bright faces in his mind. Then the darkness came upon him. sud- denly, swiftly; the sunlight was blotted out, and when his aching eyes opened once again he found himself, as be saw at a glance, in a hospital bed. He had stepped into the roadway and iancorscig-usly had crossed the track of a flying light-wheeled cab. They had picked him up insensible, and with his left arm broken. Bob's first sensation was one of maddening depression. It seemed so hard, so appalling, so heartbreaking, to be stricken just when everything appeared so bright. Then a face came up before him, little Bertha's, and it was pad and sympathetic, and his manner changed. He sent a brief message to them at Cat- ford, telling them of his accident and his whereabouts, and thus it came about that he did not keep his promise to visit them on the Saturday. Instead they came to him; nor did he pay his debt. Nearly every day they came to visit him in his imprisonment, and one day a tall, grim-faced gentleman accompanied them, whom Miilicent intro- duced as bar uncle. Mr. fMchard Sedgwicl;. His nieces had told him Bob's story, and he ha.d certain influence in various quarters, and he promised to exert it on Bob'e behalf. "I am noil-.) too soft of heart," he said gruffly and plainly. "I meddle with no one, and render cent. for cent., letting sentiment hammer at my business door in vain. In this case, however," he added, "I feel inter- ested, and I hope in a fortnight's time that you will be ready to avail yourself of what I shall doubtless have in store for yon. Is that it. little E^rtha?" And the stern-faced man of the world turned to his niece, who sprang at him and kissed him lovingly. By the middle of December Bob was well enough to leave the institution, and he found himself a member of the reportorial etaff of the "Daiiy Messenger," with a decent salary and a long agreement. On Christmas Eve little Bertha was chaff- ing her big sister unmercifully, and her withering remarks seemed chiefly directed against a new ring which Milly was wearing. "My dearest Milly," said little Bertha, cheekily, as she dropped another lump of sugar in her teacup, "Mr. Robert Hetheridge saw me home first. Yon came second. I shall kiss Bob to-night under the mistletoe." "Do so. darling, as often as you please." said Milly, quietly.
B——^IBWaWfl3—MBBBBBHBBI ON THE VERGE This warning will be read by thousands of people who only just succeed in getting through the day's work without a breakdown. If you feel always tired out, have but little appetite and a poor digestion, cannot sleep well, suffer: from headaches, backaches and nervousness, it may mean that you are on the verge of a serious breakdown. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure nervous, weak, troubled men and women because of their direct action on the Blood, which they speedily restore to its proper strength; so the nerves are toned up, the vital organs strengthened, and health is renewed. 4 "Some time ago," said Mr. Joseph Wade, of 40, St. Mary's Road, Leeds, I was fairly on the verge of a complete breakdown. I could not sleep properly, and I had constant headaches as well as backaches. At first I took medicines for liver troubles, but I felt so weak after- wards that I was thoroughly despondent. A doctor told me that I was suffering from Nervous Debility. I was run down and my -digestion was thoroughly upset. I had almost lost hope of ever being cured when I was persuaded to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. After a few boxes of these pills the pain in the back left me and my general health steadily improved. Soon the headaches and run-down feeling were things of the past, and after a steady course of the Pills I was quite fit and strong again.

Passing Pleasantries. Tommie was abont to have a children's party. "Mother," he said, thoughtfully, "it won t look well for me to be stuffing myself when those other kids are here. How will it be if I eat my share before they come?" Mrs. Biggs: My husband seems to be lost ia thought half the time. Mrs. Diggs: I suppose his ideas are so far apart that he can't help getting lost on the way from the one to the other. "How do you do, sare-" said a Frenchman to an English acquaintance. "Rather poorly, thank you," answered the other, "Nay, my dear sare," said the Frenchman, "don't thank me for your illness; I cannot help it." "Bridget," said Mrs. Grouchy, "I don't like the looks of that man who called to see you last night." "Well, well," replied Bridget, "ain't it funny, ma'am? Be said the same about you." Tommy: Pa. a man is a bachelor until he gets married, isn't he? •Tommy's Pa: Yes, my soak Tommy: And what does he call himself afterwards? Tommy's Pa: I shouldn't like to tell you, my son.
VICAR ON MILLINERY. Hhe Rev. A. G. Robinson, rector of St. John's Coventry, speaking at an Oddfellows' floral exhibition said that despite its all- round excellence he saw many more bril- liaJlt dsplays than theirs. He added, "I have only to climb into the pupit to see sights which beat this into a cocked-hat. The flowers I sec, though, have never grown; they are only imitations, and very bad imi- tations at that. They are the sort of flowers that I don't care about. I would rather see more bald pates in church."
CHILD KILLED AT PLAY. I An inquest was held at Cheehunt yesterday OlD Sophia Margaret Tuhoy, aged five, who, while playing by the roadside, was knocked down and killed by a motor-car owned by Mr. Barratt, Potter's Bar.

Struggle in an Office I EDITOR KILLED BY A GENERAL j After a desperate hand-to-hand fight at Panama on Wednesday (says the Jfew York correspondent of the "Daily Telegraph") G&T'?ral Herbert JefFries. a noted Panama revointionist. hi!;ed Mr. WJHiam Chandler. ?,e(iitor of the "Panama Pre?s." whom he accused of writing an article defamatory to Mr3. Clause Guyant. wife of the United States Deputy Consul-General at Panama. Mrs. Guyant is a sister-in-law of General Jeffries. She is only eighteen years of age. and General Jeffries resented a statemen: charging her with drunkenness. All the parties are well known on the Isthmus, and the affair has created much excitement in Anglo-Panama society. Ge,neral Jeffries entered the office of the newspaper carrying a copy of the journal containing the article in question, which had been signd by Mr. Chandler. "What dees this mean?" General Jeffries exclaimed, thrusting the paper in front of the editor. It means exactly what it says," replied Mr. Chandler quietly. General Jeffries instantly sprang at Mr Chandler, and the two clenched. It was a desperate fight, but -Alr. Chandler gradually got the upper hand, landing smashing blows upon General Jeffries's jaw and punching him almost at will. Then General Jeffries drew a revolver. He did not try to shoot, but, as Mr. Chandler, who was unarmed, feat-les-ly made a dash at him he hit the editor a heavy blow with the butt-end of the weapon. Mr. Chandler was d&z>ed. but fought fiercely to get possession of the revolver, but General Jeffries rained blows upon his head, and at last he sank to the floor dying. The assailant was taken to gaol. There is no capital punishment in Panama, but the dispatches say that it is pretty certain "some member of American Panama society will | avenge Mr. Chandler's death."
"THE CONTINENTAL SYSTEM" Somewhat extraordinary was the story of a detective told at London Sessions concern- ing a band of dangerous young burglars. William Pullen, hawker, Richard Smith, and Albert Legg pleaded guilty to attempted burgiary. Legg, said Detective-sergeant Davies, acted o-,s leader of the gang, and boasted to his companions of his sucoe&s, and often showed thorn handfuls of gold, saying that his success was. to be attributed to the fa.ct that he "worked on the Continental principle That mean: he armed himself with a --endtag, and was thus able to avoifi capture by rendering^ any would-be captor unconscious without causing a wound. He had also been known to carry a revolver. Mr. Loveland, K.C., sentenced Legg to 21 months' hard labour, Smith 12 months' hard labour, and Pullen 9 months.
TOMMY ON THE TUB." TJMTjM Eailey, a wh.ite.hired man of 69, and a convict on licence, pleaded IZI-? ty Westminster -yesterday to stealing wearing apIpare-I and a silver watch, the property ot Aibort Gro-vcc, a barman, at the Star Public- hcuse, Pimlico, and he was committed fDr trial. The prisonr, it was said, had for years made a speciality of robberies from public-houses, and wr« well known by the sobriquet of "Tommy on the Tub." His last sentence was three and a half years' penal servitude, and only on the 3rd of this month he was released on ticket. On Wednesday night, near clo-siag time, from the public part I of the Star Public-house, he made his way to the barman's room on the third floor. He was caught attempting to leave the house, I wearing, in addition to his own clothing, a coat and two waistcoats belonging to the prosecutor. A watch, studs, &c., also iden- tified by Groves, were taken from the prisoner's pocket. I don't care how it goes," vrm all the prisoner said when appre- hended.
A CAT AND DOG DISPUTE I A dispute between two farm labourers at the Axminster County-court was responsible for some indighlation and a good deal of amusement. Defendant's dog, it was claimed, had killed plaintiff's cat-a piece of destruc- tion which resulted in a claim of £1. The judge, however, ruled that the suit could not be brought, as defendant was an infant. Plaintiff (indignantly): An infant! Why, he's eighteen. (Laughter.) The Judge: He's an infant in the eye of the law. That is oma of his privileges. He is rather like a lady. They hav ea lot of privileges we haven't got. (Laughter.) Plaintiff: Well, niext tim,o I catch his dog on my premises"r shall kill it. I His Honours-Very well; do what you like. (Laughter.) ■—TS I
A BOY'S LOST MEMO,RY. I The Boys' Scuot pa.trol at Wood Green have been searching for a comrade, named i Horace Goodyear, but they failed to find him. He is a lad of thirteen, living with his parents in Gr a nib rook-park, N., -,nd after being missing for twenty-five hours, returned home. He explained that on Monday evening he went out, without his cap, to play, and wandered away with some other boys, reach- ing in the end King's Cross. He left his companions an,d spent the night in the streets, but can give no idea of what he did. All he remembers is that he saw the City being cdeansed with water in the morning. He reached home at seven o'clock on Wed- I nesday night
I FOOTBALL. I Cardiff Club Annual Meeting. II Exceptional interest attwhes to the ajmual m<eting of the Cardiff FoothaU Club, which is to be held at the Park-hall this (Friday) evening, as it is anticipated that there will be a keen contest for the captaincy, and also for seats cm the committee. Mr. W. T. Mor- gan has made such an excellent presiden-L during the past three years tha.t he is prac- tically certain of te-eleotion whatever oppo- sition may be offered. There will be a much harder fight for places on the com- mittee, there being a stromlg feeling preva- lent among the members that a few changes will be to the ultima.te benefit of the club. Mr. Sidney Bees, who put up such a good fight last year, is again a candidate, and also Mr. Bert Taylor, the popular referee, who played as a regular forward for Cardiff for half a dozen aea.soine. Both stand a good sporting chance of being elected. For the cap- taincy the candidates, are Messrs. Percy Bush, J. L. Williams, and Reggie Gibbe, and the probabililty is that the extraordinary popularity of Bush will carry him through far the fourth time as skipper of the bold blue and blacks. Messrs. Gus Hayes, W. Burriss, and W. Old are stromg candidates for sea.ts on the Reserves committee, on which there axe two vacancies. Constitution of the South Wales League I At a meeting of the South Wales League at the Alexandra Hotel, Cardiff, on Thursday evening. Mr. J. Stephens was re-elected chair- man, and Mr. E. W.

The Fishguard Fight I A KEEL AND RAIL COMPETITION I In order to put the rea.-o/i for the Ounard Company's adoption of i'ishguard in prefer- ■enf-e to Liverpool as the nr5't English port of call in the fullest light it should be said that, rousrhly spea-bingr, half the Transatlantic pan- senger traffic is Continental and half Eng- lish. That is to say, half of the American traveUcrs are anxious to get to Paris c's fa,"t as they can without coming to London. And sdmiiarljr with Continental visitors to America. It is, therefore, obvious that the stea.m.-hip linet which wish to secure the bulk of what mav be oai'ed the "boeBt" traffie have to make their arrangements so as to ensure the two and distinct transhipments with the utmost exptdiency. "Battle for Passengers Ine forthcoming battle for passengers, how- ever, liesi, more especially, between the Cunard, the White Star, and the North German-Lloyd. In the matter of the rapidity of transit between New York and Liverpool, the Cunard Company have easily held the supremacy asrainst their nearest rivals, the Jv orddeutscher-Lloyd. Both the German com- pany and the White Star Line have been largely favoured by traveilen~ making direct for the Continent, not only on accouni of the general excellence of the saiiing conditions, but because, by avoiding Liverpool, and pro- ceeding1 direct to Cherbourg, they have been abio to reach Paris more quickly, and, more particularly, without the very considerable trouble involved in the triple transference of luggage at Liverpool, London, and Dover. By "dropping" such passengers as so desired at Fishguard, the Cunard Company hope-, not only to place themselves on an equality with the White Star Line and the North German-Lioyd as regards Paris, but actually to beat them, a6 they now do, on the transhipment of passengers to London. The competition is a combined one of keel and rail. "Justified in Their Choice" In the selection of Holyhead for their first port of call, in preference to Liverpool, the White Star line save 64 nautical miles, while in adopt,ing Fishguard in place of the Mersey po-rt the Cunard will enjoy an advantage of 113 nautical miles. So far as the railway ran is concerned, the distance between Holyhead and Euston (263a miles) is very little more than that between Fishguard and Padding- ton (2E-e4 miles). It will thus be seen that, so far as what may be called the English or London traffic is concerned, the Cunard, with [ the two fastest liners afloat, a.re well able to maintain their supremacy and are justified in their choice of Fishguard as against Holy- h ead. In the matter of the Contirental traffic, the comparative routes have to be further lengthened, as follows.— Miles. Southampton to Cherbourg via Solent. 821 Plymouth to Che.rh:llfG 120 Ficiti,Tun,rd to Dover for Calais via London 338 A, between their nearest English ports to the Continent the North German Lloyd and the White Star Company have, accordingly, a H'l'Y C0Il"idc,raJ.:¡LD advantage. The Cunard Company, in corju.nct.ion with the Great Western and the South-Eastern Railway Com- panies, have decided to run through express trains from Fishguard to Dover, without g-oing- into the metropolis, and they hope to do the .entire journey in under seven hours. In this way they will put themselves on an equality with their German, and nearest, coTiipetitors, as reg'a.rdc the journey from England to the Continent, while still enjoy- ing the superiority in the matter of ocean steaming; the comparative time-tables being, seven hours from Fishguard to Dover, ona across the Channel, and four to Paris by the Cunard route, aE against live hours from Ply- mouth to Cherbourg, and seven from Cher- bourg to Paris, by the North German Lloyd route.
FIRE AT A HOTEL. Now York, Friday.—The Stnatkcona Hotel at Niagara, which is one of the best known landmarks in the district, was practically destroyed by fire yesterday. According to dispatches published in this morning's news- papers here, the guests, of which there were a large number, all managed to escape in i'ia.f.et.y-, but the majority of them lost their belongings in their hasty flight.
N.C.U. MEETING AT CARDIFF A general committee meeting of the South Wales Centre of the National Cyclists' Union ng held at the Hummer Hott. Cardiff. on ?hr=day. Mr. John Young presidmg. several riders were reported for sending in mis-leading entry forms and for riding at un- registered meetings, and it was decided to send each notice to attend a meeting on Thursday next and explain. One rider was reported for using insuiting language to a judge at a recent race meeting, and he, too, will be asked to attend. (Several professional licences were granted. A question as to whether a rider was eligible to compete in the South Wales Centre championships if he bad been born in Wales, but was now residing in another part, and it was decided that he was not. In con. nection with this point it was stated that a rider had ridden at a recent meeting under protest, but Bule 302 states that a rider must lila\ 0 resided in the centre since the 1st of January preceding the race to become eligible.

"I Will Fight Driscoll I OWEN MORAN STATES HIS CONDITION I Owen Moran has replied as follows in the "Sportsman" to statamente recently made about the contest which was expected between him and Driscoll:— I have been quite surprised these last few days to see in your columns what has appeared with regard to the fight between Dri-iooll and myself, and I will ask you to please publish this letter so that the can see both -,id-es of the question. As you know at our meeting last Monday week, when live of us and your representative moOt at your office, the only reasonable otters which had been received were the one from Mr. Jacobs and the other from America. Mr. Shirley then made his offer, and I think these are the words he need: "Owen, I have come to make an offer to you on behalf of the Welsh Syndicate, and we will give you £ 1,200 and a percentage of the gate receipts for your share, win, lose, or draw, if you will fight at Mountain Ash." I replied: No, I don't want any percentage of the gate, I want a fixed sum. I don't want to have on my mind anything about the gate; when I go in the ring I want to go with one idea-to fight." Mr. Shirley then said: "Well, failing Mr. Jacobs depositing his £ 3,000 with the "Sports- man" to-morrow, I will forward a cheque for £ 1,500 for your share, win, lose, or draw, the tight to take place at Mountain Ash." I said: "Yes, that will do for me, and I will fight Driscoll wherever you like"; and we came away with the idea thajt everything was settled. I came straight away the same night (Mon- day) here to my training quarteie, and I have never left them since. The next thing that I see in the paper is an offer from Mr. Shirley for this same syndicate for a purse of £ 2,000, £1.200 to the winner and £ 800 to the loser. Now, all I want to know is: Is it fair and straightforward, after offering me £ 1,500 for my share, win, lose, or draw, to offer this? All I wieh to say is this: Let Mr. Shirley be as good as his word and stake his money, and I will fight Driscoll wherever he likes, as I said I would. If this is not the truth, and every word of it, I will leave it to your repre- sentative, who was at the meeting, to con- tradict any syllable of it. I will only make one condition, and that ii3, that the fight shall be delayed a little longer, so that I can get myself thoroughly fit, as I intend to be when 1 fight.

Dressed as a Woman I AMUSING MASQUERADE OF AN ALIEN I Harry Winter, 35, a Russian, calling himself a tailor, and refusing' to give his address, was charged at 11 ar 1 borough-street yester- day as a suspected perscn masquerading in fem-a,le attire and loitering for the supposed purpose of committing a felony. A short, stout, fair-haired man with high-pitched voice, Winter would easily "make up" into a buxom woman. His feminine attire,- includ- ing wig and feathered hat, was produced in court. Detective-sergeant West deposed that he was in Regent-street at a quarter to one that morning, and saw the prisoner dressed exceptionally smartly as a woman and wear- ing a, wig. He interfered with gentlemen, and spoke in a very feminine voje,e, inviting them to ride in cabs. When arrested and told the accusation, he said, "How dare you! I'm a lady." The witness replied, "I don't believe you are; you will have to go to the police-station." At Yine-etreet he asked the prisoner to take off his hat. He replied, "I will do nothing of the kind; you have no right to bring me here." The witness then pulled his hat and wig off. When formally charged, he said, "I'll tear up my things. I won't appear in them before the magistrate." Since the arrest the witness had ascertained who the man was. He had been several times convicted for this offence, and had been flogged. He had been expelled from the I country; had returned, and been convicted for that. The prisoner was remanded.

Rinse well, then dry, and the cleanliness of that floor will gladden your eyes, and you'll realise the value of the soap.
