Bernadine was sallow, thin, wiry, and muscular; Beth was soft, and round, and white. She had height, age, and weight on her side; Bernadine had strength, agility, and cunning. "Phew w w!" Beth jeered, mimicking her whine. "You'd 'tell mamma' if you got a scratch." "I won't, Beth, if you'll fight," Bernadine protested.

Thus among the Warramunga the headman of the white cockatoo totem seeks to multiply white cockatoos by holding an effigy of the bird and mimicking its harsh cry. Among the Arunta the men of the witchetty grub totem perform ceremonies for multiplying the grub which the other members of the tribe use as food.

His face was scarlet, and he fingered in desperation the ragged brim of his hat. "I reckon they're my freckles," he said doggedly. "And I reckon you can keep 'em," retorted Bernard, mimicking his tone. "We ain't going to steal 'em. I say, Eugie, here're some freckles for sale!" The dark little girl, who was putting up her books in one corner, looked up and shook her head.

They don't themselves know what they are doing!" said the officer and rode off. Then a general rode past shouting something angrily, not in Russian. "Tafa-lafa! But what he's jabbering no one can make out," said a soldier, mimicking the general who had ridden away. "I'd shoot them, the scoundrels!" "We were ordered to be at the place before nine, but we haven't got halfway.

Do you remember that I wanted to talk to you yesterday morning that I suggested you should come and hear my speech and you wouldn't have it?
