"I've got to go, Champ; she wants me." Champney seized him with a strong hand by the suspenders. "Here, hold on! Who, you gump?" "The girl le' me go." But Champney gripped him fast. "No, you don't, Roman; let her yell." "Ro man zo-o-o-o!" The range of this peremptory call was two octaves at least. "By gum she's up to something, and Tave won't stand any more fooling le' me go!"

Once I came suddenly upon old Gump, the major-domo of the house servants, preparing to give a little pickaninny a thrashing, and I stopped to ask what he had done. "He's done been stealing Mas' Tom," answered Gump. "Ain' goin' t' hab no t'iefs roun' dis yere house, not if I knows it." "What did he steal, uncle?" I asked. "Dis yere whip," said Gump, and he held up an old riding-whip of mine.

There are a million boys in our public schools right now swallowing the gump of canal boy to President, and millions of worthy citizens who sleep sound every night in the belief that they have a say in running the country." "You talk like my brother Tom," Saxon said, failing to comprehend.

"Because the poor little thing was crying actually!" gasped Pratt, very red in the face. "Great tears were running out of its beautiful eyes. I could have killed a helpless baby just as easily."
