"No doubt about that at all," Sperry averred; "he'd get the biggest part of it." "You think so?" "Sure of it.

There is a species of impudence which seems to be specially attached to little birds. In them it reaches the highest pitch of perfection.

'Why, what did you come telling me the other night? cried Totty at length. 'It was like your impudence. 'What did I tell you? I didn't tell you anything.
