Chapter Four Rescued

第五章  营救

(3)

Mr. and Mrs. Little and George got down on their hands and knees and put their mouths as close as possible to the mousehole. 

利特尔夫妇和乔治都双手着地跪着,把他们的嘴尽可能地贴近那个老鼠洞。

Then they all called: "Stooooo-art!" And then they all kept perfectly still for three seconds. 

然后他们一起喊:“斯图—亚特!”接着他们都完全安静了三秒种。

Stuart, from his cramped position inside the rolled-up shade, heard them yelling in the pantry and called back, "Here I am!" 

在卷起的窗帘里处于受压迫位置的斯图亚特听到他们在贮藏室的喊叫声便回答道“我在这里!”

But he had such a weak voice and was so far inside the shade that the other members of the family did not hear his answering cry.

但是他的声音太弱,又被窗帘卷在里面,所以家里人都没听到他的喊叫。
"Again!" said Mr. Little. "One, two, three-Stooooo-art!"

“再来一遍!”利特尔先生说。“一、二、三——斯图—亚特!”
It was no use. No answer was heard. 

没用。还是听不到任何回答。

Mrs. Little went up to her bedroom, lay down, and sobbed. Mr. Little went to the telephone and called up the Bureau of Missing Persons, but when the man asked for a description of Stuart and was told that he was only two inches high, he hung up in disgust. 

利特尔夫人跑进她的卧室,躺下来低声哭了。利特尔先生跑向电话,给失踪人员登记处打电话,可是当那个人要求描述一下斯图亚特的长相并被告知他只有两英寸高时,他便厌恶地挂断了。

George meantime went down cellar and hunted around to see if he could find the other entrance to the mousehole. 

当时乔治正在地窖里仔细检查,想找找是否还有别的老鼠洞入口。

He moved a great many trunks, suitcases, flower pots, baskets, boxes, and broken chairs from one end of the cellar to the other in order to get at the section of wall which he thought was likeliest, but found no hole. 

他搬开了很多大衣箱、手提箱、花盆、篮子、盒子、破椅子,从地窖的一边挪到另一边,为了找到那堵他认为最可能有入口的墙面,可是发现所有墙面上一个洞都没有。

He did, however, come across an old discarded rowing machine of Mr. Little's, and becoming interested in this, carried it upstairs with some difficulty and spent the rest of the morning rowing.
不过,他碰巧发现了利特尔先生的一个废弃的划船机,马上来了兴趣。于是他费了很大力气把它搬到楼上,把剩余的上午时间都用在划船上了。
