But as it was found that in a duel, he who was in the right had not a better chance than he who was in the wrong, therefore society instituted the present mode of trial, and gave the advantage to him who is in the right. We sat till near two in the morning, having chatted a good while after my wife left us.

Her authority was Abraham Dawson, a well-known carman and carrier in days gone by, who was a nephew of W. S. Scholefield who owned the inn at the time. Dawson assured her that he frequently chatted with Dickens in the coffee-room. No, the George Inn is just a fine survival of old days the old days of which Dickens wrote and is similar, in many respects, to what the 'White Hart' used to be.

"Suppose you have a turn. I'm getting hot." Fred required no further hint, but stripping off his jerkin and rolling up his sleeves, he was soon at work scooping up the water and sending it flying and sparkling in the morning sunshine, while Scarlett sat and chatted. "I didn't care to ask Nat to clean out the boat," he said, "for he's such an inquisitive fellow.

"It's like a new-fashioned cradle," said Dolly; "I'll hold the rope for awhile, Dot." "All right, take it; it hurts your hand a little after awhile." So Dolly pulled the rope and the two girls sitting on the beach chatted away while the baby floated back and forth. "Let me take it now," said Dotty after a time; "you must be tired."

Gradually I came to perceive that they were not as villainous-looking and uncleanly as at first sight I had imagined. A great many of them took notes.

And all the while Rosalie laughed and chatted as though every one in the world was as happy as herself. She went into fits of merriment over young Blackburn's facetious remarks, for, as they walked through the crowds, that gentleman was making presumably witty comments upon all he saw, from Piper Angus down, and Gilbert wondered drearily if even he, himself, thought he was saying anything funny.

The Elsinore rolled uneasily, and from without came the soft and hollow thunder of sails emptying themselves against the masts and gear. We had chatted a bare five minutes, when again he lifted his head. This time the Elsinore heeled over slightly and remained heeled over, while the sighing whistle of a rising breeze awoke in the rigging.

They had always liked him from the very first, but he was more worthy of their liking now. Mr Oswald and Frank came home in due time.

He met drovers and chatted to them about the cattle; he heard a wonderful story about a heifer that one of them had sold, and that found her way back home again, twenty-five miles, and a little further on a man came across the fields towards him with a sheep-dog at his heels, a beautiful bitch who showed her teeth prettily when she was spoken to; she had long gold hair, and it was easy to see that she liked to be admired.
