But he must have reproduced merely the features and colouring, the blue, shaven cheeks, and hollow eye-sockets; for the expression of his devil he would have been obliged to seek another model.

"Your old man isn't anywhere in the Green Forest, unless he's gone to sleep in some other hollow tree, and I wouldn't blame him a bit if he had! No, Sir, I wouldn't blame him the least bit!" "Keep your temper, Brer Jay! Keep your temper, do, Oh pray!" said old Mrs. Possum, grinning in the most aggravating way as she turned back to her babies.

They shuddered at the sight, for his hollow, darkly-gleaming eyes were evidently devoid of the faculty of vision. "Count S ! what has happened?" the Colonel cried; but there was no answer, no movement, not the slightest appearance of respiration.

With what pious words he warned his hearers to repentance! how eloquently he exhorted them to contemn the hollow and vain world, which God had only made lovely and attractive in order to tempt men to sin and try their powers of resistance!

"Your nose is a bit awry, and there is a hollow in one cheek. I can feel scars. What does it matter? A man is what he thinks and feels and does. I am the maimed one, really.
