As she spoke she stretched out a long, thin arm, and pulled open the drawer into which she had put the bundle tied with twine. "They're all in here." "You don't lock that drawer?" "Never." He looked at her with a sort of severity. "I lock the door of the room, or, rather, it locks itself. You haven't noticed it?" "No." "It's the same as the outer door of a flat. I have a latch-key to it."
That honourable member, when out of the chair, could tell the committee that in a certain district of this county where there is no schoolhouse, a philanthropic individual told the inhabitants that if they would get out a frame and provide the boards, he would at his own expense provide nails, glass, locks, and the necessary materials for finishing a schoolhouse. What was the result?
He arranged the work of each member of the household, carried on all commercial transactions, and disposed of the results as he pleased. If he found the duties too heavy for him he transferred the responsibility to some other male member. These people are exceedingly honest, and in some of the villages no locks are to be found either on door or chest.
"They happen to be mine," he answered calmly. "Yours!" She picked up a small latch-key from the desk. "This is number 11, isn't it?" she asked quickly. "No! Number 11 is the flat immediately overhead," he told her. She appeared unconvinced. "But I opened the door with this key," she declared. "Mr. Barnes and I have similar locks," he said.
One of the trader's favorite tricks was to catch Mauki's kinky locks and bat his head against the wall. Another trick was to catch Mauki unawares and thrust the live end of a cigar against his flesh. This Bunster called vaccination, and Mauki was vaccinated a number of times a week. Once, in a rage, Bunster ripped the cup handle from Mauki's nose, tearing the hole clear out of the cartilage.
Little Mary had put her dolls to bed and, feeling much alone, snuggled close to her sleeping father. Looking at the long locks as they hung from his bent head, she recalled the afternoon's conversation. "His hair is too long," she thought. "Jonathan says it is not right to wear long hair."
One represents David and it is reported to be his own portrait with long locks reaching to the shoulders, as was the custom of those times; it is so vivacious and so fresh in colouring that it seems to be living flesh, and there is armour on the breast, as there is on the arm with which he is holding the severed head of Goliath.
Give thy snowy locks to me, they are younger than my blond head. Let me live and die as thou hast lived and died. I wish to plant in the soil over your grave the green branch of my young life; I will water it with my tears, and the God of orphans will protect that sacred twig nourished by the grief of youth and the memory of age."
She was fond of poetry and of music. She was a student of letters, and a clever talker on almost all the arts and sciences in which Mr. Augustus Richards delighted. But, alas! physically she was not what he could admire. She was small and insignificant in appearance. She was pallid-faced, and, it must be confessed, extremely scant of locks; and the idea of marrying her was to Mr.
So he hove up the door, knocked off the twelve locks, and opened the twelve doors, and entered a stable, where he beheld a knightly steed and a suit of armour.
