The train went up the Hudson River by night, and at every town and village on the way vast waiting crowds were revealed by the fitful glare of torches, and dirges and hymns were sung.

Children of the mist and the wild heath, the natural rock, and the lonely lake the glare of our Saxon red is too brilliant for them; let them wrap their sinewy limbs and fiery hearts in pale blue, and grey, and white and so let them enter the bloody lists, where they will hold their ground by the side of the three other nations, and bear away their share of military glory.

Higher and higher leaped the warriors. They seemed unconscious of fatigue, and the glare in their eyes became that of maniacs. Their whole souls were possessed by the orgy. Beads of sweat, not of exhaustion, but of emotional excitement, appeared upon their faces and naked bodies, and the red and black paint streaked together horribly.

The troops upon the road came on Pender's brigade. Pender, riding in advance, saw the group and asked who was wounded. "A field officer," answered one, but there came from some direction a glare of light and by it Pender knew. He sprang from his horse. "Don't say anything about it, General Pender," said Jackson.

House after house caught the flame, and through the glare and the crash rushed the men of Hardrada.

You defend him to me? Is that policy?" Peter senior suddenly looked foolish. He had straightened himself to glare at the upstart. Now he collapsed again. "No, it ain't policy," he confessed, "but I guess it's human nature. My blood ain't quite dried up yet, and I can't sit quiet while anybody blackguards my own flesh and bone. You tell me who said these things about him!" "I will not tell you."

Confound the pirates!" After what seemed like the passage of hours, the boy heard a slight sound. Listening intently, he heard it repeated. Next a light was turned on from the same dark lantern. Behind the light Hal's dazzled eyes could make out the figure of a man. Toward him the light came, Hal blinking in the glare until the newcomer halted beside him.

The child shivered, and held her hands out towards the fire which burnt steadily with a pinky glare; and, indeed, muffled as she was in a huge shawl, with a silk handkerchief round her neck and another encircling her head, she did look like some old dame. Shrouded in all these wraps, it struck one that she was no larger than an ailing bird, panting amidst its ruffled plumage.
