"How awfully weird!" said Baby Van Rensselaer. "And why did the ghost go away?" "I haven't said it went away," answered Uncle Larry, with much dignity. "But you said it used to haunt the little old house at Salem, so I supposed it had moved. Didn't it?" "You shall be told in due time.

"He may be nice," returned the latter, consolingly, though with much evident distaste to the fact. "Who cares, and then besides, I bet he isn't." "You mustn't bet." "I will. You may be nice, and proper, and so awfully prim, if you want to, but I sha'n't." "You're nearly fifteen." "Suppose I am. Besides I'm not; it's three months yet."

In fifteen minutes Farraday had dressed and was at the door, his great car gliding up silently beside the doctor's. As he walked in Stefan saw that his face was quite white. "It was awfully good of you to come," he said. "I'm so glad you asked me. My car is a sixty horsepower, if anything were needed." Farraday sat down, and lighted a pipe.

I don't think he's got a ounce of a chance now Religion's set in, though he's the mildest big 'un I ever come across. I forgot to haul him over about what he 'd got to say about Mr. Edward.

I made some fine ones once filing bones into the shape, but they were awfully brittle; and I made some more of big nails cut off and set in with a lashing of fine wire around the end to stop the wood splitting.
