She was a dressy young person, whose father kept a "sample-room."
Hence it is not surprising to find the stock-room not only a museum, but a sample-room of nature, as well as a supply department.

At this juncture they heard the sample-room door open and a heavy footstep sound on its carpeted floor.
Between them I was dragged up stairs to the sample-room, into which I were ignominiously thrust, and the door locked behind me.
I remembered that when I was conveyed up to the sample-room that morning my desk had been open.
