。， In the bedroom, off the front room, was Carrie's trunk, bought byDrouet, and in the wardrobe built into the wall quite an array ofclothing--more than she had ever possessed before, and of verybecoming designs. There was a third room for possible use as akitchen, where Drouet had Carrie establish a little portable gasstove for the preparation of small lunches, oysters, Welshrarebits, and the like, of which he was exceedingly fond; and,lastly, a bath. The whole place was cosey, in that it waslighted by gas and heated by furnace registers, possessing also asmall grate, set with an asbestos back, a method of cheerfulwarming which was then first coming into use. By her industryand natural love of order, which now developed, the placemaintained an air pleasing in the extreme.

The situation livenedconsiderably.。， "I'll tell you what you do," he said. "You come with me. I'lltake care of you."
， This settled the discussion for the time being, but there was aresidue of opinion which was not satisfactory. There was no timeat which the claims of his wife could have been moreunsatisfactorily pushed. For years he had been steadilymodifying his matrimonial devotion, and found her company dull.Now that a new light shone upon the horizon, this older luminarypaled in the west. He was satisfied to turn his face awayentirely, and any call to look back was irksome.。， "Here," she said, taking them out of the bureau drawer.
