It's about time she'll cross over; Get home bimeby.

Look at them gray hairs at the root of her tail and that lazy, too! sluttin' along with her nose out and her tongue a-waggin'. They're all like that, Black Deaths are. If you was to let off a bomb under her belly, she wouldn't so much as switch her tail. Couldn't be bothered. Constitutions like hoxes, too." He paused to pant. "If what that feller said was O.K., why then she's worth money, too.

Now, when I wuz a little rat, an' went to Sunday-school, they used to keep a-waggin' at me 'bout evil communication a-corruptin' o' good manners. That's what he'll do fust thing yer know, other fellers'll begin to be stingy, an' think gold dust wuz made to save instid uv to buy drinks an' play keards fur. That's what it'll come to."

I came home late from the store and I'm not done my supper yet." "We'll keep you only a few minutes at the most, Dock," continued Tom; "you take the orders for groceries for the store, don't you?" "What, me? Why, course I do. Ain't you seen me a-goin' around with that bob-tail racer of Old Culpepper's that could make a mile in seventeen minutes if you kept the whip a-waggin' over his back?

An' then t' Colonel, as was noa sort of a hand wi' a dog, tees him oop.

Bless yer, I've been in at the Spotted Deer to-night, and there worn't nothin' else talked of but yo' and yor goin's on. There won't be a tongue in the place to-morrow that won't be a-waggin' about yer yur a public charickter, yo' are they'll be sendin' the reporters down on yer for a hinterview.

Tess turned and faced the woman when they were alone. "I air a-comin' again," she said slyly, "and I ain't one what tells that ye slides from the house every night to the lake with Deacon Hall's coachman, I ain't.
