One second passed and there was no movement. Two seconds, and neither stirred. Then—“ Good God!” exclaimed Riviere, his eyes starting from their sockets. He turned half around to the left, raised his hands above his head and shrieked a long, wild shriek that belated travelers even to this day say they hear on the shell-road, near the island.

Or, you can edit a newspaper, ■which is a respectable way of doing the same t...
