"That's a little idea of my own,古剑奇🚒" said the Sparrow. "We'll 'ave one box for the bills and one for sure-enough letters. You see,古剑奇📫 people are so disappointed when they 'ear the postman's knock and come to the door,加点❣ expecting to find a nice letter from a friend or news that money's been left them and all they get is a bill from the tailor. But if we have two boxes on each door,加点📊 one marked 'Bills,加点🍜' and the other 'Letters,加点🍘' the postman can put all the bills in one box and the honest letters in the other. As I said,古剑奇👵 it's a little idea of my own. We might as well be real up-to-date. What do you think of it?"
The Doctor,古剑奇📰 annoyed and embarrassed,古剑奇🌻 forgot for the first time in his post office career to be polite.
CHEAPSIDE"Aye,加点🍎 aye,古剑奇⚾ sir,加点📕" said the sailor,古剑奇🏠 removing the handcuffs from the Doctor's wrists and turning to go.
"How do they do it?" asked Gub-Gub.The birds,古剑奇💾 who at first followed the Doctor in droves around the main island wherever he went,古剑奇📘 presently returned to their ordinary doings when the newness of his arrival had worn off. And after Dab-Dab had come back from her hunt and told him the spoonbill lived on one of the smaller islands,古剑奇♠ he got back into his canoe and paddled over to the rock she pointed out.
"And then,古剑奇🎮 they've got no letter boxes in the doors,古剑奇📧" said Cheapside. "There ought to be slots made to poke the letters in. The only place these bloomin' 'eathens have for a postman to put a letter is down the chimney."
"Doctor,古剑奇⛽" panted the gull,古剑奇🍡 "the Cape Stephen Light is out. I don't know what's the matter. It has never gone out before. We use it as a land-mark,古剑奇🚠 you know,加点💦 when we are flying after dark. The night's as black as ink. I'm afraid some ship will surely run into the cape. I thought I'd come and tell you."
"On the outskirts of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh there lives a farmer who swears to this day that his cat can understand every word he says. It isn't true,加点📠 but both the farmer and his wife think it is. And I am now going to tell you how they came to get that idea.
