It passed, however, and the pair went on smoking with placid contentment, for they had but recently had a "square" meal of pemmican and flour. This compost when cooked in a frying-pan is exceedingly rich and satisfying not to say heavy food, but it does not incommode such as La Certe and his wife. It even made the latter feel amiably disposed to Cloudbrow.

So the battle began; and when they were come to a close fight, there came down from heaven a great storm, with a vast quantity of rain and hail, and the wind blew the rain in the face of the Canaanites, and so darkened their eyes, that their arrows and slings were of no advantage to them, nor would the coldness of the air permit the soldiers to make use of their swords; while this storm did not so much incommode the Israelites, because it came in their backs.

It was small, and had many flags or streamers flying from poles standing above its roof; and its little battlements supported a great many small idols or images. Upstairs, inside, a solitary Jain was praying or reciting aloud in the middle of the room. Our presence did not interrupt him, nor even incommode him or modify his fervor.

The elderly horse understood, capered, and bolted. It was a centaur that dashed into Salisbury and scattered the people. In the stable he would not dismount. "I've done him!" he yelled to the ostlers apathetic men. Stretching upwards, he clung to a beam. Aeneas moved on and he was left hanging. Greatly did he incommode them by his exercises. He pulled up, he circled, he kicked the other customers.

"Possibly the king has his reasons for not wishing to be disturbed," suggested Bernenstein. "It's very possible," retorted Rischenheim significantly. "Meanwhile, my dear count, I shall take it as a personal favor if you'll move out of the doorway." "Do I incommode you by standing here?" answered the count. "Infinitely, my lord," answered Bernenstein stiffly.

Vegetation, instead of being universal, would have been confined to a narrow zone; and the whole human race would have been driven together into one limited habitable space, to interfere with, incommode, and destroy each other. The arrangement is best as it is.

"Very sorry, gentlemen, to incommode you," said the English lieutenant, as he hurried them down the side; "but necessity has no law; my orders are to send you all on board the frigate, as the captain is in a hurry to go in chase of your friends, of which we hope to have one or two more in our possession before long." The lieutenant altered his tone when the Americans began to grumble.

"Perhaps one of your friends does, sir," continued the captain. "Of course it was taken by mistake." "This means, I presume, that you consider yourself bound to search us?" The captain bowed. "Pray do so, then, but incommode my patient as little as you can. You have an easy task, sir, for our valises were left behind."

De Soto politely declined this offer, as he was unwilling thus to incommode his kind entertainer. He, however, accepted the accommodation of several houses in the village. The remainder of the army were lodged in exceedingly pleasant bowers, skilfully, and very expeditiously constructed by the natives, of bark and the green boughs of trees, outside the village. It was now the month of May.

In a little while he advised me to go down to the plain before the heat should incommode my journey. I left him, therefore, reading a book of Jane Austen's, and I have never seen him since. Of the many strange men I have met in my travels he was one of the most strange and not the least fortunate. Every word I have written about him is true.
