But I thought you did all sorts of things in the house." "No, Winnie. I only do one thing.

He stepped to the door, turned, looking into the prisoner's glaring eyes; he doubled up again. "We are quits; I forgive you the broken arm; this laugh will repay me. How Madame the countess will laugh! And Duckwitz the General will die of apoplexy! O, but you are a sorry ass; and how neatly we have clipped your ears!"

Waste is always a pitiful and disagreeable thing, and the waste of whatever reserved power may lie at present unused in the breasts of half a million of old maids, for instance, is a thought which, with so much to be done around us, it is somewhat uncomfortable to dwell much upon.

Julien and Victor, the rosy little Englishmen, didn't fancy much the small room they lived in.

The sight is something goodly, as well to the man of the world as to the man of God, to behold the fairly-decked array of people, drawn from a circuit of some ten or even fifteen miles in extent, on the sabbath, neatly dressed in their choicest apparel, men and women alike well mounted, and forming numerous processions and parties, from three to five or ten in each, bending from every direction to a given point, and assembling for the purposes of devotion.
