Man in a shell

Ivan Ivanych had a rather queer double surname -- Chimsha-Himalaisky -- which did not suit Man in a shell at all, and he was known as Ivan Ivanych all over the province. He lived on a stud-farm near the town, and had gone out shooting to breathe some fresh air. They did not sleep. Ivan Ivanych, a tall, spare old man with long mustaches, was sitting outside the door, smoking a pipe in the moonlight.

Burkin was Iying inside on the hay, and could not be seen for the darkness. They were telling each other stories. I am no naturalist, and it is not my business to settle such questions; I only mean to say that people like Mavra are by no means rare.

Why, not to go far afield, there was Belikov, a colleague of mine, a teacher of Greek, who died in our town two months ago. You have heard of him, no doubt. The curious thing about him was that he wore rubbers, and a warm coat with an interlining, and carried an umbrella even in the finest weather.

And he kept his umbrella in its cover and his watch in a gray chamois case, and when he took out his penknife to sharpen his pencil, his penknife, too, was in a little case; and his face seemed to be in a case too, because it was always hidden in his turned-up collar.

He wore dark spectacles and a sweater, stuffed his ears with cotton-wool, and when he got into a cab always told the driver to put up the hood. In short, the man showed a constant and irrepressible inclination to keep a covering about himself, to create for himself a membrane, as it were, which would isolate him and protect him from outside influences.

Actuality irritated him, frightened him, kept him in a state of continual agitation, and, perhaps to justify his timidity, his aversion for the present, he would always laud the past and things that had never existed, and the dead languages that he taught were in effect for him the same rubbers and umbrella in which he sought concealment from real life.

The only things that were clear to him were Government regulations and newspaper notices in which something was forbidden. But there was always a doubtful element for him, something vague and not fully expressed in any sanction or permission.

The Man in a Shell

When a dramatic club or a reading-room or a teahouse was licensed in the town, he would shake his head and say in a low voice: He would call on some teacher, would sit down, and remain silently staring, as though he were trying to detect something.

He would sit like this in silence for an hour or two and then leave. We teachers were afraid of him. And even the principal was afraid of him. Would you believe it, our teachers were all thoughtful, decent people, brought up on Turgenev and Shchedrin, yet this little man, who always wore rubbers and carried an umbrella, had the whole high school under his thumb for fully fifteen years!

Our ladies did not get up private theatricals on Saturdays for fear he should find it out, and the clergy dared not eat meat in Lent or play cards in his presence.

Under the influence of people like Belikov the whole town spent ten to fifteen frightened years.16 hours ago · Man arrested in fatal shooting at Shell gas station IMPD detectives arrested Antonio Eubanks, 30, on a preliminary murder charge Wednesday .
