As she went by he glanced at the basket. a cloth was over something within it, and for the moment he was glad and thea hair sorry with the thought that she was not in such dire Straits as he had Imagined. As she placed her foot on the stair he saw the cloth w.t3 pulled aside at one place, and a piece of char coal tatted up.
