"I chose a doll for every girl that has n't any," she told them gaily, "and I got just as pretty ones as there were in the store." "Say, what colored hair has mine?" questioned Mabel. "Light, like Stella's, I think." "Oh, goody!" squealed the little maid. "And is it curly?" Polly nodded. "Wha' d' yer buy for Leonora?" queried a curious one.
The Frenchman, expecting he knew not what, sprang to his feet, snatching up a knife; but Gaston was on him like a hawk, pinioning his arms and lifting him off the ground, binding his legs too, all so tight that the Frenchman squealed for breath. "Monsieur," said Gaston to the landlord, "from the door or the window?" The landlord was pale. It was in some respects a quarrel of races.
A Boche machine-gun loosed a few belts of cartridges in the spasmodic style of her kind. There was no mistake about it this time massed infantry were sweeping the plain with rifle fire, and the quick-firers were feeling for an opening. Another man was hit close to Tim. He squealed like a girl; and a fellow near turned a dirty white, stumbled, with a clatter fell in a fainting fit.

He had uttered a loud, "Ha!" of triumph, his feet were after her, and she squealed like a hunted rabbit when he pounced on her. It was very dark within the wood. His face was no more than a blur, and her unseen beauty was powerless to help her. She was desperate, and she laughed. "George, you'll spoil my little joke. I've left a letter for you.

Ike squealed on Spotty for another job after they give him the third degree, and when Spotty heard of that it made him sore, as it would anybody. Then when the two bulls who pinched Spotty and Ike tested the diamonds in the cross and found they was phoney as they might have guessed coming from a department store Spotty was fit to be tied, he was so wild!
