No loudness, brazenness, impertinence; no oaths, no swaggering, no leering at women, no irreverence, no flippancy, no bullying, no insolence of porters or clerks or conductors, no importunity of bootblacks or newsboys, no omnivorousness, of hackmen, at least, comparatively none, all of which an American is apt to notice, and, I hope, appreciate.

Spragg murmured: "She never HAS, Abner," but Mr. Spragg's brow remained unrelenting. "Do you know what a box costs?" "No; but I s'pose you do," Undine returned with unconscious flippancy. "I do.
