ny about the cuffs. The derby hat--and in October, in Wellmouth, derby hats are seldom worn--the derby hat was new and of a peculiar shade of brown; it was a little too small for its wearer's head and, even as Raish looked, a gust of wind lifted it and would have sent it whirling from the car had not Mr. Bangs saved it by a sudden grab.

"Come pretty nigh losin' somethin' overboard that time, didn't you?" he observed.

Mr. Bangs pulled the brown derby as far down upon his head as it would go.

Galusha? The given name of a very timid but intelligent, big harted man.
He is an Archaeologist who finds himself stranded in a small town.
As with all small towns, it has it's mix of personalities and characters.
Galusha gets involved in fixing and repairing, not things but the lives of people.
For a shy unassuming man, that may seem a tall order.
He has to deal with greed, set idea sand even the occult.

Light humor.
A wonderful story of an "absent-minded professor" archeologist, and the sensible landlady who take him in hand. Although considered to be "not quite right in the head" by the other characters, Galusha is a type we are more familiar with these days, and he would be admired today as a geek extraordinaire. An absolutely delightful book; funny and clever, but also a sweet, gently romantic tale.
