Then he hauled on the painter till he brought the little craft up to the taffrail, where with no little difficulty he cast off the rope.

"I do, and I suppose I must thank you, but don't do it again. I'd rather you didn't carry your whip at all on Lucretia; she doesn't need it; but don't ease her up if you've got a chance till you pass the winning post." As the two finished speaking, and moved away, a thin, freckled face peered furtively from the door of stall number six.

"Yes, they are butterflies." I peered at them. "The specimen is unknown in England as far as I know." "Quite so. They are peculiar to Russia." "But what are you doing with them?" I asked.

"Boys!" exclaimed Huldah tragically, as she joined us for a survey. "I'll see that they don't keep the grass off our lawn."

A lad of about eleven years with the sardonic face of a satyr and diabolically bright eyes peered into the room.
