“It makes you nervous, Bill—reminds you of being nabbed,

“Reminds me of being nabbed by the devil,” returned Sikes. 
“There never was another man with such a face as yours, unless it

advantage of the foregoing conversation to put on her bonnet, and 
was now leaving the room. 

“Hallo!” cried Sikes. “Nance. Where’s the gal going to at this 
time of night?” 

“Not far.”
