From the speaker's first words to his closing sentence, he was subjected to a constant fire of ridiculous interjections, which:were always followed by screeches and yells from the rear of the building. Even if the words of the interjection were not loud enough to be understood by those v'who ,made the noise, the uproar :-ensued just':the' same.
