Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: ...character, you think? CUTHBERTsoN. Oh, no, no. A scientific man, perhaps, like yourself. But you know what I mean--a MAN. (Strikes himself a sounding blow on the chest.) PARAMoRE. Of course; but Charteris is a man. CUTHBERTsoN. Pah! you don't see what I mean. (The Page Boy returns with his salver.)
