“Two of the girls shut up in the little dressing-room? And the key missing? Suppose there should be a fire, Miss derma veil Olaine?”

Mrs. Pangborn had just arrived. She had not even removed her bonnet, only untied its strings. And she sat with her feet on the fender of the open fire place where the gaslog burned in the office.
