Chapter 2 The Open Road

‘Ratty,’ said the Mole1 suddenly, one bright summer morning, ‘if you please, I want to ask you a favour.’

The Rat was sitting on the river bank, singing a little song.  He had just composed it himself, so he was very taken up with it, and would not pay proper attention to Mole or anything else. Since early morning he had been swimming in the river, in company with his friends the ducks.  And when the ducks stood on their heads suddenly, as ducks will, he would dive down and tickle2 their necks, just under where their chins would be if ducks had chins, till they were forced to come to the surface again in a hurry, spluttering and angry and shaking their feathers at him, for it is impossible to say quite ALL you feel when your head is under water.  At last they implored3 him to go away and attend to his own affairs and leave them to mind theirs.  So the Rat went away, and sat on the river bank in the sun, and made up a song about them, which he called ‘DUCKS’ DITTY.’ All along the backwater, Through the rushes tall, Ducks are a-dabbling4, Up tails all!

Ducks’ tails, drakes’ tails, Yellow feet a-quiver, Yellow bills all out of sight Busy in the river!
Slushy green undergrowth Where the roach swim—Here we keep our larder5, Cool and full and dim.
Everyone for what he likes! WE like to be Heads down, tails up, Dabbling free!
High in the blue above Swifts whirl and call—WE are down a-dabbling Up tails all!

‘I don’t know that I think so VERY much of that little song, Rat,’ observed the Mole cautiously.  He was no poet himself and didn’t care who knew it; and he had a candid6 nature.

‘Nor don’t the ducks neither,’ replied the Rat cheerfully.  ‘They say, “WHY can’t fellows be allowed to do what they like WHEN they like and AS they like, instead of other fellows sitting on banks and watching them all the time and making remarks and poetry and things about them?  What NONSENSE it all is!”  That’s what the ducks say.’

‘So it is, so it is,’ said the Mole, with great heartiness8.

‘No, it isn’t!’ cried the Rat indignantly.

‘Well then, it isn’t, it isn’t,’ replied the Mole soothingly9. ‘But what I wanted to ask you was, won’t you take me to call on Mr. Toad10?  I’ve heard so much about him, and I do so want to make his acquaintance.’

‘Why, certainly,’ said the good-natured Rat, jumping to his feet and dismissing poetry from his mind for the day.  ‘Get the boat out, and we’ll paddle up there at once.  It’s never the wrong time to call on Toad.  Early or late he’s always the same fellow. Always good-tempered, always glad to see you, always sorry when you go!’

‘He must be a very nice animal,’ observed the Mole, as he got into the boat and took the sculls, while the Rat settled himself comfortably in the stern.

‘He is indeed the best of animals,’ replied Rat.  ‘So simple, so good-natured, and so affectionate.  Perhaps he’s not very clever—we can’t all be geniuses; and it may be that he is both boastful and conceited11. But he has got some great qualities, has Toady12.’

Rounding a bend in the river, they came in sight of a handsome, dignified13 old house of mellowed14 red brick, with well-kept lawns reaching down to the water’s edge.

‘There’s Toad Hall,’ said the Rat; ‘and that creek15 on the left, where the notice-board says, “Private.  No landing allowed,” leads to his boat-house, where we’ll leave the boat.  The stables are over there to the right.  That’s the banqueting-hall you’re looking at now—very old, that is.  Toad is rather rich, you know, and this is really one of the nicest houses in these parts, though we never admit as much to Toad.’

They glided16 up the creek, and the Mole slipped his sculls as they passed into the shadow of a large boat-house.  Here they saw many handsome boats, slung18 from the cross beams or hauled up on a slip, but none in the water; and the place had an unused and a deserted19 air.

The Rat looked around him.  ‘I understand,’ said he.  ‘Boating is played out.  He’s tired of it, and done with it.  I wonder what new fad20 he has taken up now?  Come along and let’s look him up. We shall hear all about it quite soon enough.’

They disembarked, and strolled across the gay flower-decked lawns in search of Toad, whom they presently happened upon resting in a wicker garden-chair, with a pre-occupied expression of face, and a large map spread out on his knees.

‘Hooray!’ he cried, jumping up on seeing them, ‘this is splendid!’  He shook the paws of both of them warmly, never waiting for an introduction to the Mole.  ‘How KIND of you!’ he went on, dancing round them.  ‘I was just going to send a boat down the river for you, Ratty, with strict orders that you were to be fetched up here at once, whatever you were doing.  I want you badly—both of you.  Now what will you take?  Come inside and have something!  You don’t know how lucky it is, your turning up just now!’

‘Let’s sit quiet a bit, Toady!’ said the Rat, throwing himself into an easy chair, while the Mole took another by the side of him and made some civil remark about Toad’s ‘delightful residence.’

‘Finest house on the whole river,’ cried Toad boisterously21.  ‘Or anywhere else, for that matter,’ he could not help adding.

Here the Rat nudged the Mole.  Unfortunately the Toad saw him do it, and turned very red.  There was a moment’s painful silence. Then Toad burst out laughing.  ‘All right, Ratty,’ he said. ‘It’s only my way, you know.  And it’s not such a very bad house, is it?  You know you rather like it yourself.  Now, look here. Let’s be sensible.  You are the very animals I wanted.  You’ve got to help me.  It’s most important!’

‘It’s about your rowing, I suppose,’ said the Rat, with an innocent air.  ‘You’re getting on fairly well, though you splash a good bit still.  With a great deal of patience, and any quantity of coaching, you may----‘

‘O, pooh! boating!’ interrupted the Toad, in great disgust. Silly boyish amusement.  I’ve given that up LONG ago.  Sheer waste of time, that’s what it is.  It makes me downright sorry to see you fellows, who ought to know better, spending all your energies in that aimless manner.  No, I’ve discovered the real thing, the only genuine occupation for a life time.  I propose to devote the remainder of mine to it, and can only regret the wasted years that lie behind me, squandered22 in trivialities. Come with me, dear Ratty, and your amiable23 friend also, if he will be so very good, just as far as the stable-yard, and you shall see what you shall see!’

He led the way to the stable-yard accordingly, the Rat following with a most mistrustful expression; and there, drawn24 out of the coach house into the open, they saw a gipsy caravan25, shining with newness, painted a canary-yellow picked out with green, and red wheels.

‘There you are!’ cried the Toad, straddling and expanding himself.  ‘There’s real life for you, embodied26 in that little cart.  The open road, the dusty highway, the heath, the common, the hedgerows, the rolling downs!  Camps, villages, towns, cities!  Here to-day, up and off to somewhere else to-morrow! Travel, change, interest, excitement!  The whole world before you, and a horizon that’s always changing!  And mind! this is the very finest cart of its sort that was ever built, without any exception.  Come inside and look at the arrangements.  Planned ‘em all myself, I did!’

The Mole was tremendously interested and excited, and followed him eagerly up the steps and into the interior of the caravan. The Rat only snorted and thrust his hands deep into his pockets, remaining where he was.

It was indeed very compact and comfortable.  Little sleeping bunks28—a little table that folded up against the wall—a cooking-stove, lockers29, bookshelves, a bird-cage with a bird in it; and pots, pans, jugs31 and kettles of every size and variety.

‘All complete!’ said the Toad triumphantly33, pulling open a locker30.  ‘You see—biscuits, potted lobster34, sardines—everything you can possibly want.  Soda-water here—baccy there—letter-paper, bacon, jam, cards and dominoes—you’ll find,’ he continued, as they descended35 the steps again, ‘you’ll find that nothing what ever has been forgotten, when we make our start this afternoon.’

‘I beg your pardon,’ said the Rat slowly, as he chewed a straw, ‘but did I overhear you say something about “WE,” and “START,” and “THIS AFTERNOON?”’

‘Now, you dear good old Ratty,’ said Toad, imploringly36, ‘don’t begin talking in that stiff and sniffy sort of way, because you know you’ve GOT to come.  I can’t possibly manage without you, so please consider it settled, and don’t argue—it’s the one thing I can’t stand.  You surely don’t mean to stick to your dull fusty old river all your life, and just live in a hole in a bank, and BOAT?  I want to show you the world!  I’m going to make an ANIMAL of you, my boy!’

‘I don’t care,’ said the Rat, doggedly37.  ‘I’m not coming, and that’s flat.  And I AM going to stick to my old river, AND live in a hole, AND boat, as I’ve always done.  And what’s more, Mole’s going to stick me and do as I do, aren’t you, Mole?’

‘Of course I am,’ said the Mole, loyally.  ‘I’ll always stick to you, Rat, and what you say is to be—has got to be.  All the same, it sounds as if it might have been—well, rather fun, you know!’ he added, wistfully.  Poor Mole!  The Life Adventurous38 was so new a thing to him, and so thrilling; and this fresh aspect of it was so tempting39; and he had fallen in love at first sight with the canary-coloured cart and all its little fitments.

The Rat saw what was passing in his mind, and wavered.  He hated disappointing people, and he was fond of the Mole, and would do almost anything to oblige him. Toad was watching both of them closely.

‘Come along in, and have some lunch,’ he said, diplomatically, ‘and we’ll talk it over.  We needn’t decide anything in a hurry. Of course, I don’t really care.  I only want to give pleasure to you fellows.  “Live for others!”  That’s my motto in life.’

During luncheon—which was excellent, of course, as everything at Toad Hall always was—the Toad simply let himself go. Disregarding the Rat, he proceeded to play upon the inexperienced Mole as on a harp40.  Naturally a voluble animal, and always mastered by his imagination, he painted the prospects41 of the trip and the joys of the open life and the roadside in such glowing colours that the Mole could hardly sit in his chair for excitement.  Somehow, it soon seemed taken for granted by all three of them that the trip was a settled thing; and the Rat, though still unconvinced in his mind, allowed his good-nature to over-ride his personal objections.  He could not bear to disappoint his two friends, who were already deep in schemes and anticipations42, planning out each day’s separate occupation for several weeks ahead.

When they were quite ready, the now triumphant32 Toad led his companions to the paddock and set them to capture the old grey horse, who, without having been consulted, and to his own extreme annoyance43, had been told off by Toad for the dustiest job in this dusty expedition.  He frankly44 preferred the paddock, and took a deal of catching45.  Meantime Toad packed the lockers still tighter with necessaries, and hung nosebags, nets of onions, bundles of hay, and baskets from the bottom of the cart.  At last the horse was caught and harnessed, and they set off, all talking at once, each animal either trudging46 by the side of the cart or sitting on the shaft47, as the humour took him.  It was a golden afternoon.  The smell of the dust they kicked up was rich and satisfying; out of thick orchards48 on either side the road, birds called and whistled to them cheerily; good-natured wayfarers49, passing them, gave them ‘Good-day,’ or stopped to say nice things about their beautiful cart; and rabbits, sitting at their front doors in the hedgerows, held up their fore-paws, and said, ‘O my! O my!  O my!’
行前的准备大体就绪,大获全胜的蟾蜍领着伙伴们来到养马场,要他们去捉那匹老灰马。由于事先没跟老马商量,蟾蜍就分派他在这趟尘土弥漫的旅途中干这件尘土弥漫的脏活,老马一肚子牢骚怨气,所以逮住他可费了大劲。蟾蜍乘他们逮马时,又往食品柜塞进更多的必需品,又把饲料袋、几网兜洋葱头、几大捆干草,还有几只筐子,吊在车厢底下。老马终于给逮住,套在车上,他们出发了。三只动物各随所好,有的跟着车走,有的坐在车杠上,大伙儿你一言我一语,同时说着话。那天下午,阳光灿烂。他们蹴起的尘土,香喷喷的,闻着叫人心旷神怡。大路两侧茂密的果园里,鸟儿们欢乐地向他们打招呼,吹口哨。和蔼的过路人从他们身旁走过时,向他们道声好,或者停下来,说几句中听的话,赞美他们那漂亮的马车。兔儿们坐在树篱下他们家的门口,举着前爪,一叠连声赞叹: “哎呀呀!哎呀呀!哎呀呀!”

Late in the evening, tired and happy and miles from home, they drew up on a remote common far from habitations, turned the horse loose to graze, and ate their simple supper sitting on the grass by the side of the cart.  Toad talked big about all he was going to do in the days to come, while stars grew fuller and larger all around them, and a yellow moon, appearing suddenly and silently from nowhere in particular, came to keep them company and listen to their talk.  At last they turned in to their little bunks in the cart; and Toad, kicking out his legs, sleepily said, ‘Well, good night, you fellows!  This is the real life for a gentleman! Talk about your old river!’

‘I DON’T talk about my river,’ replied the patient Rat. ‘You KNOW I don’t, Toad.  But I THINK about it,’ he added pathetically, in a lower tone:  ‘I think about it—all the time!’

The Mole reached out from under his blanket, felt for the Rat’s paw in the darkness, and gave it a squeeze.  ‘I’ll do whatever you like, Ratty,’ he whispered.  ‘Shall we run away to-morrow morning, quite early—VERY early—and go back to our dear old hole on the river?’

‘No, no, we’ll see it out,’ whispered back the Rat.  ‘Thanks awfully50, but I ought to stick by Toad till this trip is ended. It wouldn’t be safe for him to be left to himself.  It won’t take very long.  His fads51 never do.  Good night!’

The end was indeed nearer than even the Rat suspected.

After so much open air and excitement the Toad slept very soundly, and no amount of shaking could rouse him out of bed next morning.  So the Mole and Rat turned to, quietly and manfully, and while the Rat saw to the horse, and lit a fire, and cleaned last night’s cups and platters, and got things ready for breakfast, the Mole trudged53 off to the nearest village, a long way off, for milk and eggs and various necessaries the Toad had, of course, forgotten to provide.  The hard work had all been done, and the two animals were resting, thoroughly54 exhausted55, by the time Toad appeared on the scene, fresh and gay, remarking what a pleasant easy life it was they were all leading now, after the cares and worries and fatigues56 of housekeeping at home.

They had a pleasant ramble57 that day over grassy58 downs and along narrow by-lanes, and camped as before, on a common, only this time the two guests took care that Toad should do his fair share of work.  In consequence, when the time came for starting next morning, Toad was by no means so rapturous about the simplicity59 of the primitive60 life, and indeed attempted to resume his place in his bunk27, whence he was hauled by force.  Their way lay, as before, across country by narrow lanes, and it was not till the afternoon that they came out on the high-road, their first high-road; and there disaster, fleet and unforeseen, sprang out on them—disaster momentous61 indeed to their expedition, but simply overwhelming in its effect on the after-career of Toad.

They were strolling along the high-road easily, the Mole by the horse’s head, talking to him, since the horse had complained that he was being frightfully left out of it, and nobody considered him in the least; the Toad and the Water Rat walking behind the cart talking together—at least Toad was talking, and Rat was saying at intervals62, ‘Yes, precisely63; and what did YOU say to HIM?’—and thinking all the time of something very different, when far behind them they heard a faint warning hum; like the drone of a distant bee.  Glancing back, they saw a small cloud of dust, with a dark centre of energy, advancing on them at incredible speed, while from out the dust a faint ‘Poop-poop!’ wailed64 like an uneasy animal in pain.  Hardly regarding it, they turned to resume their conversation, when in an instant (as it seemed) the peaceful scene was changed, and with a blast of wind and a whirl of sound that made them jump for the nearest ditch, It was on them!  The ‘Poop-poop’ rang with a brazen65 shout in their ears, they had a moment’s glimpse of an interior of glittering plate-glass and rich morocco, and the magnificent motor-car, immense, breath-snatching, passionate66, with its pilot tense and hugging his wheel, possessed67 all earth and air for the fraction of a second, flung an enveloping68 cloud of dust that blinded and enwrapped them utterly69, and then dwindled70 to a speck71 in the far distance, changed back into a droning bee once more.
他们正悠闲自在地在公路上缓缓行进,鼹鼠和老马并肩而行,跟马说话,因为那匹马抱怨说,他被冷落了,谁也不理睬他。蟾蜍和河鼠跟在车后,互相交谈——至少是蟾蜍在说话,河鼠只是有一搭没一搭地插上一句:“是呀,可不是吗?你跟他说什么来着?”心里却琢磨着毫不相干的别样事。就在这当儿,从后面老远的地方传来一阵隐隐的警告的轰鸣声,就像一只蜜蜂在远处嗡嗡嘤嘤。回头一看,只见后面一团滚滚烟尘,中心有个黑黑的东西在移动,以难以置信的速度向他们冲来。从烟尘里,发出一种低微的“噗噗” 声,像一只惊恐不安的动物在痛苦地呻吟。他们并没在意,又接着谈话。可是就在一瞬间(仿佛只一眨眼的工夫),宁静的局面突然打破了。一阵狂风,一声怒吼,那东西猛扑上来,把他们逼下了路旁的沟渠。那“噗噗”声,像只大喇叭,在他们耳边震天价响。那东西里面锃亮的厚玻璃板和华贵的摩洛哥山羊皮垫,在他们眼前一晃而过。原来那是一辆富丽堂皇的汽车,一个庞然大物,脾气暴躁,令人胆寒。驾驶员聚精会神地紧握方向盘,顷刻间独霸了整个天地,搅起一团遮天蔽日的尘云,把他们团团裹住,什么也看不见了。接着,它嗖地远去,缩成一个小黑点,又变成了一只低声嗡嗡的蜜蜂。

The old grey horse, dreaming, as he plodded72 along, of his quiet paddock, in a new raw situation such as this simply abandoned himself to his natural emotions.  Rearing, plunging73, backing steadily74, in spite of all the Mole’s efforts at his head, and all the Mole’s lively language directed at his better feelings, he drove the cart backwards75 towards the deep ditch at the side of the road.  It wavered an instant—then there was a heartrending crash—and the canary-coloured cart, their pride and their joy, lay on its side in the ditch, an irredeemable wreck76.

The Rat danced up and down in the road, simply transported with passion.  ‘You villains77!’ he shouted, shaking both fists, ‘You scoundrels, you highwaymen, you—you—roadhogs!--I’ll have the law of you!  I’ll report you!  I’ll take you through all the Courts!’  His home-sickness had quite slipped away from him, and for the moment he was the skipper of the canary-coloured vessel78 driven on a shoal by the reckless jockeying of rival mariners79, and he was trying to recollect80 all the fine and biting things he used to say to masters of steam-launches when their wash, as they drove too near the bank, used to flood his parlour-carpet at home.

Toad sat straight down in the middle of the dusty road, his legs stretched out before him, and stared fixedly81 in the direction of the disappearing motor-car.  He breathed short, his face wore a placid83 satisfied expression, and at intervals he faintly murmured ‘Poop-poop!’

The Mole was busy trying to quiet the horse, which he succeeded in doing after a time.  Then he went to look at the cart, on its side in the ditch.  It was indeed a sorry sight.  Panels and windows smashed, axles hopelessly bent85, one wheel off, sardine-tins scattered86 over the wide world, and the bird in the bird-cage sobbing87 pitifully and calling to be let out.

The Rat came to help him, but their united efforts were not sufficient to right the cart.  ‘Hi! Toad!’ they cried.  ‘Come and bear a hand, can’t you!’

The Toad never answered a word, or budged88 from his seat in the road; so they went to see what was the matter with him.  They found him in a sort of a trance, a happy smile on his face, his eyes still fixed82 on the dusty wake of their destroyer.  At intervals he was still heard to murmur84 ‘Poop-poop!’

The Rat shook him by the shoulder.  ‘Are you coming to help us, Toad?’ he demanded sternly.

‘Glorious, stirring sight!’ murmured Toad, never offering to move.  ‘The poetry of motion!  The REAL way to travel!  The ONLY way to travel!  Here to-day—in next week to-morrow! Villages skipped, towns and cities jumped—always somebody else’s horizon!  O bliss89!  O poop-poop!  O my!  O my!’

‘O STOP being an ass17, Toad!’ cried the Mole despairingly.

‘And to think I never KNEW!’ went on the Toad in a dreamy monotone.  ‘All those wasted years that lie behind me, I never knew, never even DREAMT!  But NOW—but now that I know, now that I fully7 realise!  O what a flowery track lies spread before me, henceforth!  What dust-clouds shall spring up behind me as I speed on my reckless way!  What carts I shall fling carelessly into the ditch in the wake of my magnificent onset90! Horrid91 little carts—common carts—canary-coloured carts!’

‘What are we to do with him?’ asked the Mole of the Water Rat.

‘Nothing at all,’ replied the Rat firmly.  ‘Because there is really nothing to be done.  You see, I know him from of old.  He is now possessed.  He has got a new craze, and it always takes him that way, in its first stage.  He’ll continue like that for days now, like an animal walking in a happy dream, quite useless for all practical purposes.  Never mind him.  Let’s go and see what there is to be done about the cart.’

A careful inspection92 showed them that, even if they succeeded in righting it by themselves, the cart would travel no longer.  The axles were in a hopeless state, and the missing wheel was shattered into pieces.

The Rat knotted the horse’s reins93 over his back and took him by the head, carrying the bird cage and its hysterical94 occupant in the other hand.  ‘Come on!’ he said grimly to the Mole.  ‘It’s five or six miles to the nearest town, and we shall just have to walk it.  The sooner we make a start the better.’

‘But what about Toad?’ asked the Mole anxiously, as they set off together.  ‘We can’t leave him here, sitting in the middle of the road by himself, in the distracted state he’s in!  It’s not safe. Supposing another Thing were to come along?’

‘O, BOTHER Toad,’ said the Rat savagely95; ‘I’ve done with him!’

They had not proceeded very far on their way, however, when there was a pattering of feet behind them, and Toad caught them up and thrust a paw inside the elbow of each of them; still breathing short and staring into vacancy96.

‘Now, look here, Toad!’ said the Rat sharply: ‘as soon as we get to the town, you’ll have to go straight to the police-station, and see if they know anything about that motor-car and who it belongs to, and lodge97 a complaint against it.  And then you’ll have to go to a blacksmith’s or a wheelwright’s and arrange for the cart to be fetched and mended and put to rights.  It’ll take time, but it’s not quite a hopeless smash.  Meanwhile, the Mole and I will go to an inn and find comfortable rooms where we can stay till the cart’s ready, and till your nerves have recovered their shock.’

‘Police-station!  Complaint!’murmured Toad dreamily.  ‘Me COMPLAIN of that beautiful, that heavenly vision that has been vouchsafed98 me!  MEND THE CART!  I’ve done with carts for ever. I never want to see the cart, or to hear of it, again.  O, Ratty! You can’t think how obliged I am to you for consenting to come on this trip!  I wouldn’t have gone without you, and then I might never have seen that—that swan, that sunbeam, that thunderbolt! I might never have heard that entrancing sound, or smelt99 that bewitching smell!  I owe it all to you, my best of friends!’

The Rat turned from him in despair.  ‘You see what it is?’ he said to the Mole, addressing him across Toad’s head:  ‘He’s quite hopeless.  I give it up—when we get to the town we’ll go to the railway station, and with luck we may pick up a train there that’ll get us back to riverbank to-night.  And if ever you catch me going a-pleasuring with this provoking animal again!’ He snorted, and during the rest of that weary trudge52 addressed his remarks exclusively to Mole.
河鼠无可奈何地掉转脸去。“瞧见了吗?” 他隔着蟾蜍的头对鼹鼠说:“他简直不可救药。算了,拉倒吧。等我们到了镇上,就去火车站,运气好的话,也许能赶上一趟火车,今晚就可以回到河岸。你瞧着吧,今后我再跟这个可恶的动物一块儿玩乐才怪!”他愤愤地哼了一下鼻子,随后,在这段沉闷乏味的跋涉途中,他只跟鼹鼠一个人搭话。

On reaching the town they went straight to the station and deposited Toad in the second-class waiting-room, giving a porter twopence to keep a strict eye on him.  They then left the horse at an inn stable, and gave what directions they could about the cart and its contents.  Eventually, a slow train having landed them at a station not very far from Toad Hall, they escorted the spell-bound, sleep-walking Toad to his door, put him inside it, and instructed his housekeeper100 to feed him, undress him, and put him to bed.  Then they got out their boat from the boat-house, sculled down the river home, and at a very late hour sat down to supper in their own cosy101 riverside parlour, to the Rat’s great joy and contentment.

The following evening the Mole, who had risen late and taken things very easy all day, was sitting on the bank fishing, when the Rat, who had been looking up his friends and gossiping, came strolling along to find him.  ‘Heard the news?’ he said. ‘There’s nothing else being talked about, all along the river bank.  Toad went up to Town by an early train this morning.  And he has ordered a large and very expensive motor-car.’
