That great four-headed road was a perpetual memento to patriotic ardor. To say, this way lies the road to Paris and that other way to Aix-la-Chapelle, this to Prague, that to Vienna nourished the warfare of the heart by daily ministrations of sense.

She has immortalized them in her ugly, four-headed idols, in the geometrical, complicated forms of her temples, and even in the entangled lines and spots on the foreheads of her sectaries.

Four beasts came from the sea: the lion with eagle's wings was his own Assyria, but was set aside by the devouring bear of Persia; then followed the flying four-headed leopard of Greece; and lastly, the dreadful and terrible destroying creature, meaning Rome, which ground with iron teeth, and brake all in pieces.

New doctor or no new doctor, this crisis must be met at once. The innocent and facile character of the Sawyers had long been a problem in Elmbrook, but who could have dreamed that, even in their weakest moment, Jake and Hannah could have been decoyed into adopting a four-headed monster! Mrs. Munn's heart was heavy with dread as she hurried up the lane.
