After that he sethimself down for two long days to read the weekly papers for thepast year. They had with them food at theutmost for seven days and petroleum for a little longer.
Stannix was coldly polite, andhis haggard face was set hard.
Iexpect you to draw on me for all you want. And leave our bones there, said Falconet. He had lost the power ofself-restraint, and there was no companionship to be got out ofhim. That meeting in Falconets flat hadfate behind it. He looked at food withdistaste, and he began to suffer from blinding headaches.
Once the sledgetoppled into a voe, and Falconets diaries were only rescued by amiracle.

Adams feeble hands uncovered the food box, which wasintact. He was a youngman who might be thirty, but no more. They decidedto push on to the next cache.
As he passed the other hestopped for a moment to watch him.
They slept ill that night and nextmorning reduced their rations to a pound a day.
But thats idiocy, said Falconet fiercely.
