What do you suppose the Lord thinks when he sees you so cross to each other?" "He don't think noffin'," said Budge; "you don't think he can look through a black sky like that, do you?"

On Easter Saturday Harvey Bope unpacked a large, promising-looking red cardboard box under the expectant eyes of his nephews. "Your uncle has brought you the newest thing in toys," Eleanor had said impressively, and youthful anticipation had been anxiously divided between Albanian soldiery and a Somali camel-corps. Eric was hotly in favour of the latter contingency.

"Such are the varieties of opinion upon all the grand affairs of life," said Mr. Gresham, looking at his nephews. "What amongst one set of people you hear asserted to be absolutely necessary, you will hear from another set of people is quite unnecessary.

Avoid your nephews; you are so frank your face will betray you. They both love me, are both hot-tempered, and in the first excitement of the discovery might be violent.

"Yes, why not?"

He did not romp with his little nephews, and only smiled when Harrie teased him for this unusual omission of avuncular privilege.
