Hello
what does the part of it indicated in the title mean please; thank you
La vielle femme qvec un petit cri, se dressa comme pour fuir, tandis que lui, à coups de botte, rejetait dans la cheminée l'ènorme charbon et ratissait de sa semelle toutes les éclaboussures ardentes répandues autour.

    I would say "... while he was booting the big piece of coal back into the chimney and raked with his shoe sole all the glowing splashes ..."
    Hope it helps!
