"You've never succeeded in defying me yet, and you won't do it now. I'll conquer you I'll break you if it takes me all night to do it!" Dinah recoiled before the unshackled fury that suddenly blazed in the gipsy eyes that looked into hers.
Her engines breaking down, she drifted upon a sand-bank; and the attacking ships pounded her at their leisure, until, with the fire bursting from her portholes, she was abandoned by her crew, and blazed away until her career was ended by the explosion of her magazine.
A fire, the size of which attested the desert Indian's love of warmth, blazed in the middle of the hogan, and sent part of its smoke upward through a round hole in the roof.

He noted the entrance of his visitors, but immediately resumed his meditative posture, and appeared to be unaware of their presence.

Bonfires blazed all over the country. The dawn of Switzerland's freedom had appeared.
They blazed like the eyes of a tiger, and his teeth were bared in a savage grin which I cannot hope to describe. His lean body seemed to shoot through the air, and he descended upon his burly adversary as a jungle beast falls upon its prey. Those long brown fingers clasping his neck, the Grand Duke fell forward upon his face. "Chunda Lal!" said the dancer.
'To the very last moment, till the full day came upon them with a spring, the fires on the west bank blazed bright and clear; and then Brown saw in a knot of coloured figures motionless between the advanced houses a man in European clothes, in a helmet, all white. "That's him; look! look!" Cornelius said excitedly. All Brown's men had sprung up and crowded at his back with lustreless eyes.
"Well, I'll lay you ten to one that if we don't get busy he'll have the house empty in thirty-six hours, and a bill of sale on it in as many days." The celluloid mirror blazed up at that minute, and she poured the contents of my water-pitcher over the dresser.
