How is it possible not to admit so very beautiful a theory, in order that one may be able, ever after, to pocket one's conscience, and have a perfectly unbridled animal existence, feeling beneath one's self that support of science which is not to be shaken nowadays! And it is on this new doctrine that the justification for men's idleness and cruelty is now founded.

"Tell me one thing, Jasper, and I shall be content," said she, speaking now with a firmness which denoted confidence, not only in herself, but in her companion: "you do not deserve this cruel suspicion which rests upon you?" "I do not, Mabel!" answered Jasper, looking into her full blue eyes with an openness and simplicity that might have shaken stronger distrust.

"My young friends here have their nerves a little shaken," said the widow, with a smile, to the clergyman at the altar. "But so many weddings have been ushered in with the merriest peal of the bells, and yet turned out unhappily, that I shall hope for better fortune under such different auspices."

Here I was near home, but did not tarry, and passed thence by stage to Leesburg, in Virginia; and so finally came back into our little valley and the quiet town of Wallingford. I had gone away the victim of misfortune; I returned home with a broken word and an unfinished promise and a shaken heart. That was my return. I got me a horse at Wallingford barns, and rode out to Cowles' Farms.

Sometimes, indeed, the mere necessities of dispute carried me, before I was aware of my own imprudence, so far up the staircase of Babel, that my brother was shaken for a moment in the infinity of his contempt; and before long, when my superiority in some bookish accomplishments displayed itself, by results that could not be entirely dissembled, mere foolish human nature forced me into some trifle of exultation at these retributory triumphs.

Well, that's nice and sociable. So you're boardin' at Luretta Smalley's. My! you're consider'ble ways from home, ain't you? Is your mamma with you?" For the first time the youthful caller's poise seemed a trifle shaken. "No-o . . . no," she stammered, and added, hastily: "How much is this fish, please?" "I generally sell that sort of fish for about two dollars."

Again, however, she righted, and this time, her lee scuppers remained for longer free of the water. Bowse looked to windward: he was about to order a couple of reefs more to be shaken out of the topsails, when another violent blast almost laid her on her beam ends.

He heard the crash of the first kick on the door, rose from the ditch, crossed the road, and took to the edge of the cliffs again. He walked quickly, frightened and shaken. He started into a breathless run when Hannah's battle whoop reached him on the still air. He heard distinctly the men's shrieks, and even the noise of the runaway horses galloping on the hard road.

"You have taken to yourself more than your share of my evil fortunes, Elizabeth, dear I shall be a poor sort of a fellow if my gratitude does not last to the end of my days!" said North. The general had shaken hands with the deputy and now crossed the room to Elizabeth and North. "We shall have to say good night, North. Can we do anything before we go?" he asked.

Who knows? they my serve as an introduction to the study of the English tongue. Not without cordiality was my leave-taking. The hostess confided to me that, in the first day of my illness, she had felt sure I should die.
