Examples from texts

He took a handful of papers from a pigeonhole-bills and receipts; next hole, insurance; next, a small book with records of every girl.
Потом взял с полки пачку бумаг — счета и квитанции, на другой лежали страховки, на третьей — записная книжечка, где на каждую дешевку целое дело заведено.

The proof is complete, but we can prove even more if we use a direct method instead of relying on the indirect pigeonhole argument.
Доказательство-то завершено, но если не полагаться на косвенную "птичью" аргументацию, а воспользоваться прямым методом, то можно доказать даже большее.

He delved deeper into the desk, opening drawers and searching pigeonholes, no longer trying to conceal the fact that it had been rifled.
Он покопался в столе, открыл ящики, тайники, уже и не пытаясь замести следы собственного присутствия.
