"For God's sake," I cried, "let's hurry!" He stepped back slowly to the edge of the road and the drawl in his voice lengthened. "We do hurry," he said.

Imagine his position, and imagine also, if you possibly can, the great qualities that are demanded if such a man is to go through a lengthened period of unemployment without losing his dignity, his manhood and his desire for work. I can tell at a glance the man who has had this experience.

The half-shut door of a small adjoining room opened very slowly and softly, and Joab entered on tiptoe, elaborate caution surrounding him like an atmosphere. "You, Joab," said Rand. "It's time you were in the field." Joab's preternaturally lengthened countenance became short, broad, and genial. He threw back his head and breathed relief. "Dar now! What I tell em?

He trembled while he smiled. "It's done a lot for you." "What do you mean?" she asked, her face flushing with confusion. "I mean" he tried to laugh "your best dress seems pretty tight for you.
