"It's Stylites—bob yer curtsy," whispered Agnes in Connie's ear.
"Come and sit in this warm chair by the fire, dear," said Stylites.
Here are to be found anchorites, and stylites or pillar-saints.
The inquest was held on Friday at the Stylites Arms in the village.
For answer Stylites put his hand into his pocket, produced half-a-crown, and tossed it to Agnes.
Stylites removed his hand from under the girl's chin, and Connie felt a blush of pain sweeping over her face.
They went for a long drive, and Stylites dismissed the hansom in a distant part of the town.
But Stylites starts a most interesting question in a practical point of view.
On the flat top of this naked rock, like the Stylites on his pillar, stands Constantina.
And this, says Fleury, is the only instance that we know of a stylites or pillar monk in the Western world.
