To the left is a large, open fireplace, and to the right is a door leading to the bedroom. The kitchen is very scantily furnished and bare.

There is a table at the back under the window, and a chair at each side. It is near midnight, and a candle placed on the mantel at the fireplace casts a dim light. An old muzzle-loading gun can be seen hung over the mantel. Outside the house is darkness, and a wind moans loudly as the curtain rises to discover Mrs. McKie crouched over the fire. John Smith sits a little way off chafing his hands. Mrs. McKie is a woman of some thirty-five years of age, neatly dressed, but poverty-stricken in appearance. John Smith is some five years her junior, and a stout, brawny type of labourer.Mrs.

McKie (shivering). Bless me but thats the cold night. The fires near out, John. Youre a bad hand at keeping up a fire.Smith. No wonder, and nothing to keep it going.Mrs. McKie. Get a lump more turf then.Smith. I was out just a wheen of minutes ago and theres no more turf about the place, maam.

I could cut a lot of sticks if you like.Mrs. McKie. Na. Well need them all for the morning. Deary me, theres not as much heat as would keep a tin of water at the boil. (She shivers.) Was it freezing hard?Smith.

Aye, hard it is, maam.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
