"Nothing, but that Downing Street has turned into Parnassus. The astounding fact is, that Grenville has teemed, and, as the fruits of the long vacation, has produced a Latin epigram. 'Veris risit Amor roses caducas: Cui Ver "Vane puer, tuine flores, Quaeso, perpetuum manent in aevum?" The prince laughed.

'Cui bono, as the lawyers say. Two persons only could have had any motive, so far as wealth and fortune go. "Are you sure of that? People have more than suspected they have condemned my father. After that, I can suspect any body. Who is it? Please to tell me." "It is the present Lord Castlewood, as he is beginning to be called.

These items, one by one, had been dropped by Felipa at various times, and it was with curiosity that I gazed upon the original Miguel, the possessor of this remarkable spouse. He was a grave-eyed, yellow man, who said little and thought less, applying cui bono? to mental much as the city man applies it to bodily exertion, and therefore achieving, I think, a finer degree of inanition.

Nec enim umquam sum assensus veteri illi laudatoque proverbio, quod monet mature fieri senem, si diu velis senex esse. Ego vero me minus diu senem esse mallem quam esse senem ante quam essem. Itaque nemo adhuc convenire me voluit cui fuerim occupatus. 33 At minus habeo virium quam vestrum utervis. Ne vos quidem T. Ponti centurionis viris habetis: num idcirco est ille praestantior?

Another way is to assume an act of spontaneous generation, i.e. a transition somewhere and somewhen from absolutely non-living to absolutely living. You cannot have it both ways.

He suddenly realized that this was the only homelike room he knew outside of England. He felt as if nothing would ever give him peace again, but he was suddenly and overwhelmingly glad to be there and comfortably alone with Isabel on this raging night.

From proletariats in their own persons they have become men of substance and property. These assertions are facts to which names and amounts can be given; and that question, Cui bono? answers itself. The inference to be drawn is too grave to be set aside; and to plead "charitable judgment" is to plead imbecility.

We call it a Society the Cui Bono Society," he answered coldly. "I like the name," I returned. "It is suggestive. It may mean anything or nothing." "You will learn later that the Society means something; a good deal, in fact." This was said in the dry, unemotional tone which I afterwards found was the only sign of displeasure Brande ever permitted himself to show.

Your deep philosophers also, and all the laborious professors of the art of sinking, may elevate their nasal projections, and demand "cui bono"?

It is these gifted minds that enliven our habitations, and contribute so largely to those every-day delights, which constitute, after all, the chief part of mortal happiness.

MacFarlane, turning up the annuity tables for the chances of life at the supposed age of thirty-two, which Mrs. Peck had given as the probable age of her neighbour in the lodging-house, after a period of thirty-four years.
