We transport ourselves with him from one locality to another; our imagination supplies all the intermediate actions that he omits; nay, we are grateful to him for arousing our spiritual faculties in so worthy a fashion.

It follows the fortunes of the infant church and gives us all the light we have in regard to its further organization and development, but it does not claim to be a complete history of the work of the early church. As a history it is as remarkable for what it omits as for what it narrates.

An Italian diligence never breakfasts, unless a small cup of coffee, hurriedly snatched while the horses are being put to, can be called such. Sometimes it does not even dine; but it never omits to sup. The supper chamber in Chiari was most sumptuously laid out, vermicelli soup, flesh, fowls, cheese, pastry, wine, every viand, in short, that could tempt the appetite.

Victor Hugo, who discovered the child of modern poetry, never omits the touch of description; the word blond is as inevitable as any epithet marshalled to attend its noun in a last-century poet's dictionary. One would not have it away; one can hear the caress with which the master pronounces it, "making his mouth," as Swift did for his "little language."

He prosecutes his suit against his mistress as clients do a suit in law, and does nothing without the advice of his learned counsel, omits no advantage for want of soliciting, and, when he gets her consent, overthrows her.

"Since the world began it has been the law of life that the young should leave their parents for a home of their own," Juan protested. "So the Scripture says," agreed Megales sardonically. "It further counsels to love one's enemies, but, I think, omits mention of the enemies of one's father." "Sir, I am not your enemy.

It presents us with what is indeed a very frequent adjunct of conversation, but the use of written characters, or the finger- speech of deaf mutes, is enough to show that the word "language" omits all reference to the most essential characteristics of the idea, which in practice it nevertheless very sufficiently presents to us. I hope presently to make it clear to you how and why it should do so.

In midsummer, 1795, Madelaine had been married between seven and eight years and her infant was, likely enough, her fourth child. The memoirist omits to say that this person was Neville Déclouet. "Oh!" cried Celeste, "but what will Tonton say when she sees you?"
