There was a pause, and he closed that eye again, and looked across at Glenview.
And it was only then, Wyeth recalled, that among them he had not observed Glenview.
At that moment, Legs gave Glenview a push that sent him reeling, and with a lunge, he cornered Moore.
He turned his eyes in the direction of the rear, and at that moment Glenview walked into view.
"It is indeed singular," commented Glenview, whose English was always the most careful.
He paused again and closed that eye, it was the right; Glenview closed his left, Wyeth closed his too.
Legs, Wyeth and Glenview, who were very agreeable roomers, didn't hear of it until the second morning.
When he presently emerged, the onlookers saw not two, Glenview and the other, but five.
As he stood watching, the dice passed to Glenview, the intelligent roomer.
"Jumped right into his jaws," laughed Glenview, as they watched the chase from the porch.
