Our gentleman, in common with all worthy of the name, had a bank-book, which, in hopes that it would disclose an unsuspected balance, he would have "made up" every time he read an utterance exhorting people to invest and save their country. One morning at the end of May, finding there was none, he called in his housekeeper and said: "Mrs.

I sat nearest the wheel, and the moment that we set off I fancied that I saw certain death await me. All I could do was to take still safer hold of the handle, and to be more and more careful to preserve my balance.

I didn't know we were dealing with such big figures. Well, Mr. Cranze has got his inducements to murder the man, anyway." "I told you that from the first. Now, Captain, are you going to take my check for that preliminary £20?" "Hand it over," said Kettle. "I see no objections. And you may as well give me a bit of a letter about the balance."

Our favorable balance of trade has thus been greatly increased and Europe has been deprived of the means of meeting it heretofore existing. Europe can have only three ways of meeting the favorable balance of trade in peace times: by imports into this country of gold or of goods, or by establishing new credits.

I selected a few men from the Fond du Lac District, and a few others from the vicinity of the meeting to remain with me, and the balance mostly went with the Bishop. The change in the state of affairs, as I anticipated, was felt immediately.

She looked just as proud as Johnny Chuck, and at the same time she seemed terribly anxious. She sat up beside Johnny Chuck, and she looked this way and that way, just as Johnny had. Then she put her head in at the doorway and began to call in the softest voice. In a minute Sammy Jay saw something more. It surprised him so that he nearly lost his balance.

There is nothing in all this to touch the essential of liberty which is the value of the power of self-governance where it exists. All that is proved is that where it does not exist it is right to save men from suffering, and if the case admits to put them under conditions in which the normal balance of impulse is most likely to be restored.

The man's voice was subdued as he replied: 'Sir, I am sorry to say that his Grace is dead! He left his room some time in the night, and wandered about nobody knows where. On returning to the upper floor he lost his balance and fell downstairs. The steward told the tale of the Down before the Vicar had spoken. Mills had always intended to do so after the death of the Duke.
