鈥極h, bother!鈥?cried Edith, and retired, dragging one foot after the other, as though loth to return to her studies. Only a few days after that night of terror Isola was lying calm as a child. The fever had gone down鈥攖he enfeebled constitution had at last answered to the influence of medicine;[Pg 135] and gradually, like the slow lifting of the darkness after a long night of cloud and fog, consciousness and reason came back. Sleep soothed the strained and weary nerves, and the exhausted frame, which a few days before had seemed endowed with a superhuman strength, lay like a log upon the bed of sickness. Next to a juvenile party, I don't know anything better鈥攆rom a professional point of view鈥攖han a public ball, he[Pg 65] said. "Your canvas corridors, decorated with flowers and bunting, are a fortune to a family practitioner." Day after day, night after night, Martin Disney sat in his place and listened to those ravings of a mind distraught. He could not keep himself from trying to follow her in that labyrinth of disconnected fancies鈥攙isions of shapeless horror, trouble, confusion鈥攁 wild babbling of numbers, prattling of millions, billions, trillions鈥攁s if her days of health and sense had been spent in the calculations of a Rothschild, she who could scarcely reckon the simplest account in a tradesman's book.
