As he did not foresee what would happen, he had made no provision for the demand, and his sphere of life secluding him from all sorts of monied intercourse, he could not raise the cash by his credit in the usual way of borrowing; so that, without my assistance, he must have gone to jail; a disgrace which would have proved fatal to the peace of his family, and utterly ruined his reputation.

For a moment old Judd's eyes swept the windows and port-holes of the Court House, the windows of the jailer's house, the line of guards about the jail, and then they dropped to the line of Falins and glared with contemptuous hate into the leaping blue eyes of old Buck Falin, and for that moment there was silence.

She was asked to sign her deposition; and then M. Daubigeon told her she might go. Then, turning to Trumence, he said, "You will be taken to jail now. But you are an honest man, and you need not give yourself any trouble. Go now." The magistrate and the commonwealth attorney remained alone now, since, of course, a clerk counts for nothing. "Well," said M. Daubigeon, "what do you think of that?"

It was Thoreau's love for the little wild creatures which drew them to him, for animals are as responsive to love as are human beings. John Howard gave his life to the work of improving the condition of prisons all over the world, and finally he died alone in Russia of jail fever. He was followed in his labors by Elizabeth Fry in England, and by Dorothea Dix in America.

Our study of the Puritan ideals embodied in literature takes us beyond 1660, the date of the Restoration, because after that time two great Puritan writers, John Milton and John Bunyan, did some of their most famous work, the one in retirement, the other in jail.

If they don't throw me into jail at Brussels, I may return in a day or two." There was a faint flush in Dorothy's cheeks as she bade good-bye to the party.

At this moment George Green burst into tears, threw his arms around her neck, and exclaimed, "I am glad I have waited so long, with the hope of meeting you again." Mrs. Devenant again resumed her story: "I was kept in jail three days, during which time I was visited by the magistrates, and two of the judges.

"Yes," said the prisoner, upon which the Judge again expressing the hope that he and all his friends down on Indian Creek would understand that it was the act of the jury and of the law, and not of the Judge, ordered the prisoner to be remanded to jail, and the court adjourned for the term.

Tony Scollop, who, with an enterprise all his own, provided a coach for her, went with her to the jail, remained during the sad interview that took place with her unhappy grandson, and gave her a gorgeous bouquet with which to assuage her grief. He took her to a hotel, and did not leave her until she had signed a ten weeks' contract to appear in his dime museum.

"Take him away, Constable Sprigg," he said to one of the men who had come into the store with him. "Take him away!" So the man who had cheated Frank, and who had nearly cheated Mr. Mack, was locked up in jail. It was found that he had many Confederate bills with him.
