the experiment

“I am glad you came, Clarke; very glad indeed. I was 

not sure you could spare the time.”

“I was able to make arrangements for a few days; 

things are not very lively just now. But have you no 

misgivings, Raymond? Is it absolutely safe?”

The two men were slowly pacing the terrace in front 

of Dr. Raymond’s house. The sun still hung above the 

western mountain-line, but it shone with a dull red 

glow that cast no shadows, and all the air was quiet; a 

sweet breath came from the great wood on the hillside 

above, and with it, at intervals, the soft murmuring call 

of the wild doves. Below, in the long lovely valley, the 

river wound in and out between the lonely hills, and, 

as the sun hovered and vanished into the west, a faint 

mist, pure white, began to rise from the hills. Dr. Ray-

mond turned sharply to his friend.

“Safe? Of course it is. In itself the operation is a per-

fectly simple one; any surgeon could do it.”
