Here, Cæsar, come here!" The colonel gave a sharp whistle. But Cæsar, a yellow mongrel of questionable breeds, did not appear.

Colonel Witham dozed again, and again slumber overtook him.

"God help the poor fellow!" he thought, "whoever he may be, if he once gets into such brutish hands." "Yes," he heard Tim Fleeters saying, "it was only yesterday that I went out to cut fire-wood. The poke of gold was in my chest, at the foot of my bunk. When I returned, and lifted the lid to get some tea which I kept there, the poke was gone gold and all."

And when he thought Pete wasn't watching, Cuffy tried again to hit him. Again Cuffy missed. His paw didn't reach Pete at all. But Pete gave him a terrible poke right in the stomach, and Cuffy sat down quickly on the ground and began to groan. Pete sat down on the ground too and he looked at Cuffy and grinned.

Sit down, Count von Hemelstein, and if you will give me your word of honour that you will not move I shall not tie you.

"Which my name is Snummitt," she repeated, bobbing a curtsy and momentarily eclipsing the rolling eye under the poke of a very large bonnet, "Mrs. Snummitt, sir, which though a widder I'm respectable and of 'igh character and connections.
