Of course, the government had to use them 2 cents right off towards buyin' tight-jackets to confine the madmen the whiskey had made, and poorhouse- doors for the idiots it had breeded, to lean up aginst, and buryin' the paupers, and buyin' ropes to hang the murderers it had created.

"Laddie," said the former, "although I meant it at the time as a testimony of my affection, I've been thinking that what I said to the young leddy may not have been over-tactful." "It was taking it too much for granted," explained Mo, "that you and her were sort of keeping company." "You're a pair of idiots," said Doggie, sitting down between them, and taking out his pink packet of Caporal.

"The Professor is just one of those amiable old idiots, absorbed in his mouldy old work, who would never notice anything," Lenora persisted. "He is just the man to be completely hoodwinked by a clever servant." "There is some sense in what the kid says," Laura remarked, strolling up.

Hence the relative proportion of gray matter in different brains has come to be regarded by physiologists as a test of mental power. Many idiots have large and well formed brains but the convolutions are shallow and few and the gray matter small in quantity and extent of surface.

I hope some of them do better than that, or I shan't learn much."

He spoke before he thought, thus admitting his guilt and Dodge's. "You idiot!" hissed Bert. "You're both of you idiots," retorted the captor, who had now released both young men. "Besides being a mean, detestable trick, it's as old as the world. That red-pepper trick was invented by some stupid lout who lived thousands of years before the Flood."
