"What do you mean?" asked his companion, with a creepy premonition
of something coming, he knew not why.
He was considering the nature of the premonition
he had received, trying to locate the source of the mysterious force that had warned him, striving to sense the imperative presence of the unseen thing that threatened him.
But, for some reason which I could not then account, I was strangely overcome by a premonition
of personal misfortune.
Just for a moment I had a premonition
of approaching evil.
I remember that at the very moment of picking up the bottle, before I even dealt with the wrapper, the weight of the object I had in my hand gave me an instant premonition
. Quinine is as light as feath- ers; and my nerves must have been exasperated into an extraordinary sensibility.
But one very curious fact was that all the shame and vexation and mortification which he felt over the accident were less powerful than the deep impression of the almost supernatural truth of his premonition
. He stood still in alarm--in almost superstitious alarm, for a moment; then all mists seemed to clear away from his eyes; he was conscious of nothing but light and joy and ecstasy; his breath came and went; but the moment passed.
For a time he could not even speak, but at last regained sufficient composure to tell them how the thing must have swooped silently upon him from above and behind as the first premonition
of danger he had received was when the long, clawlike fingers had clutched him beneath either arm.
However, there is always a cheering influence about the sea; and in my berth that night, rocked by the measured swell of the waves and lulled by the murmur of the distant surf, I soon passed tranquilly out of all consciousness of the dreary experiences of the day and damaging premonitions
of the future.
As I stood looking down upon that sad and lonely mound, wrapped in the most dismal of reflections and premonitions
, I was suddenly seized from behind and thrown to earth.
