She repaid him richly for driving the cab. But she was unnaturally cool about Lady Cicely; and the exquisite reason soon came out. "Oh yes! She is very good; very kind; but it is not for me now! No! you shall not sail about with her cub of a cousin, and leave me at such a time." Christopher groaned. "Christie, you shall not see that lady again. She came here to part us.

He sat on the bench where he could keep a careful eye on the course. By and by he said "There is just one way I would take a young man to learn the river that is, for money." "What do you charge?" "Five hundred dollars, and I to be at no expense whatever." In those days pilots were allowed to carry a learner, or "cub," board free. Mr.

The Dark Cub had learned the rudiments of Wolf life: that the way to fight Dogs is to run, and to fight as you run, never grapple, but snap, snap, snap, and make for the rough country where Horses cannot bring their riders. He learned not to bother about the Coyotes that follow for the pickings when you hunt; you cannot catch them and they do you no harm.

"We have him attended to as well as we have you." "That's a lie," Reade declared coolly. "Do you want us to show him to you?" "Yes," nodded Tom. "You'd have to show me Dave Fulsbee before I'd believe you." "Yank the cub off that horse!" ordered 'Gene Black harshly. Three or four men seized Reade, dragging him out of the saddle and throwing him to earth.

His son, hearing there was still a demand, among kings, for lions, and those especially with centre curls in their tails, took the most promising of the whelps and petted and fed him well.

"The boy is a disagreeable cub and deserves more than one lesson of that sort. Didn't he offer to hit you back?" "No." "So I supposed.

The Self-Complacent Young Cub leaned an elbow against the mantel as you've seen it done in English plays, and blew a practically perfect smoke-ring. It hurtled toward me like a discus. Been meaning to meet and tell you that for a long time. Your characterization's all right, and your dialogue. In fact, I think they're good. But your stuff lacks raison d'être if you know what I mean.

The cub was accustomed to seeing much larger animals beat a hasty retreat upon the approach of himself and his mother and somehow he had gained the impression that he might be at least partly the cause of their temerity. But this stranger actually threatened him.

Then a rest, and forward again, slower and slower, night after day in ever-failing strength, till on the edge of a great barren they stopped as if struck, trembling all over as the reek of game poured into their starving nostrils.

Toward morning we got sleepy, and the fire burnt low, and didn't that old bear and one cub drop right down among us and start off to the woods. That waked us up. We built up the fire and kept watch, so that the one cub, still in the tree, couldn't get away. Until daylight the mother bear hung around, calling to the cub to come down."
