When the moment comes, then do as thine own heart and the whisper of God in it bid thee." A great sob answered her; it was the first since his earliest infancy that she had ever heard from Bernadou. It grew dark. The autumn day died. The sullen clouds dropped scattered rain. The red leaves were blown in millions by the wind.

The river seemed to grow noisier as it fell, chafing against obstacles which it had hitherto overflowed, and listen as one might we could make out nothing but its sullen roar. I told Hinge what I had noticed about the stream, and with a few words to my companions I rode until the noise of rushing water was no longer oppressive to the ear, and listened with all my might.

After several of the steers had been roped, thrown, and tied, there still remained in the arena a sullen and difficult brute, which was as tricky as a rat, and the boys gave him up one at a time. "Why don't you give the girls a chance at him?" shouted a cowgirl derisively, from the seats. "Any girl who wants to tackle him is at liberty to do so," Ted shouted back through his megaphone.

"And I must warn you," said the irate official of the British Government, "if you drive these men out of your ship, you may expect no assistance from me in collecting another crew. The men are right, and you are wrong." The captain was in a state of sullen passion at the turn things had taken against him.

Earnshaw told her to wash it, give it clean things, and let it sleep with the children. The children's presents were forgotten. This was how Heathcliff, as they called him, came to Wuthering Heights. Miss Cathy and he soon became very thick; but Hindley hated him. He was a patient, sullen child, who would stand blows without winking or shedding a tear.

It is true, he remained for a time at the court of Philip after his mother's departure, but his mind was in a very irritable and sullen mood; and at length, on the occasion of a great public festival, an angry conversation between Alexander and Philip occurred, growing out of some allusions which were made to Olympias by some of the guests, in the course of which Alexander openly denounced and defied the king, and then abruptly left the court, and went off to Epirus to join his mother.

"There's not call for you to wear it today," was the sullen reply. "Oh, but I'd like it, please, if you don't mind!" Polly insisted, gaining courage from Dr. Dudley's presence. With a toss of her head, Mrs. Bean stalked into the next room. The moments passed. Still she did not return. When she did appear, she looked actually troubled.

Harps in families mean blood, and blood don't run out if you're careful of it." Nella-Rose laughed, but Marg, in the wash-house beyond, listened and hated! No one connected her with harps or blood, but she held, in her sullen heart and soul, the true elements of all that had gone into the making of the best Greysons.

Upstairs in his room he got out his few elementary text-books, and began to read with a sort of sullen determination; but he had not gone very far in the 'descent of an estate-tail, before he shut the book up in a passion: 'I can't read to-night, he said savagely; 'it isn't easy to hug my chains all at once; it will be a long time before I come out strong on estates-tail. I loathe it!
