So the dead tchinovnik began to appear even beyond the Kalinkin Bridge, causing no little terror to all timid people.
But many active and apprehensive persons could by no means reassure themselves, and asserted that the dead tchinovnik still showed himself in distant parts of the city.
He also is a tchinovnik â€” or rather, was a tchinovnik, since he was turned out of the service some time ago.
There are men, too â€” wretched busybodies â€” who walk about merely to see if they can find some wretched tchinovnik or broken-down official who has got toes projecting from his boots or his hair uncut!
