The omission can be explained only on the ground that the editor, Judah Löb, who was the son of the author, did not wish to give offence, or he had outgrown the credulity of his father. The feeling of tolerance manifested itself also in the Jewish attitude towards the Gentiles.

Calhoun, now sixty-five years old, a ghastly physical wreck, still represented South Carolina and dismally speculated on the prospect of surviving the outgrown Union. Cass, equal in years with Calhoun, still held his seat in the Senate and cherished the delusive hope of yet reaching the Presidency.

And as the realistic writers perfected their art, the more acute readers began to perceive that the hero who is a doer of deeds can represent only the earlier stages of culture which we have long outgrown. This hero came to be recognized as an anachronism, out of place in a more modern social organization based on a full appreciation of individuality.

He and his house seemed to be keeping the Ten Commandments in a slouching sort of way and we may even suppose they were out of debt money debt; yet already they were an unconscious menace to society; their wage-earning powers had outgrown their wants.

His advice to the people was, "Defend your firesides if they are invaded, live as peaceably as you can, spare no pains to educate your children, be saving and industrious, try to get land under your feet and homes over your heads.

It was only as he went back to his room that he began to see how fully Nettie had outgrown her passion for him. He met her the next day as he was going home from the office. "Hello, Bradley," she said, without blushing, though her eyes wavered before his. He held out his hand with a frank smile. "Hello, Nettie, which way are you going?" "Going home now, been up to the grocery. Want to go 'long?"

There are, I believe, hundreds of men and women now alive, who have outgrown their traditional faith, through no fault of their own; but who out of terror at the vague menaces of interested and Pharisaical persons do not dare to break away.
