In fact, the apparently achieved civilization was so grossly material in its successes, so forcibly feeble in its failures, so beset with vulgarity at its summit and undermined by destitution at its base, that even the horrors of the present war, with its appalling loss of the best lives of the chief nations of the earth, may be a blessing to mankind in the long run if they purge its notions about the things that are worth trying for.

"Poor, dear gentleman, is he as bad at that?" said Therese. "You don't want me now, I must go and look after my dinner; it is half-past four," remarked Sylvie.

He was a fraction of a second too late.

Meanwhile, not only the Government, but the public in England were beginning to realise the alarming nature of the Egyptian situation.

In the midst of this appalling ruin of the monuments of man's power, nature asserted her ascendancy, and shone more beauteous from the contrast.

The clergy nowhere possessed greater power, and nowhere used it more assiduously to fan the flame against witchcraft.
