On the side

Anna Botsford Comstock, Ways of the Six-Footed, Boston, Ginn & Company, 1903, p. 134.

On the side of this tiny seine toward the current of the stream is a little passage which leads to the seine-builder’s house. This is a rather crudely constructed tube made of sticks and stones fastened to the surface of the stone with silk, and just large enough to fit its occupant. Lying in his house, his alert head reaching out in the passageway, our small fisherman needs only to take a step or two examine his haul and sate his appetite.
