We seem able to make no headway against her, in spite of our best efforts." "Let us see what better efforts we can make then," cried Wolfe, with eager eyes. "Best! why, man, we have done nothing but procrastinate and blunder, till my ears tingle with shame as I read the story! But we are awakening at last, and we have a man to look to who is no blunderer.

Whenever a customer enters the shop, if he desire a box of pills, he receives with them an equal number of hard, round, dry jokes, or if a dose of salts, it is mingled with a portion of the salt of Attica, or if some hot, Oriental drug, it is accompanied by a racy word or two that tingle on the mental palate, all without the least additional cost.

"At sea," was the answer. Josiah Childs felt a something very akin to relief and joy tingle through him. Agatha had married again evidently a seafaring man. Next, came an ominous, creepy sensation. Agatha had committed bigamy. He remembered Enoch Arden, read aloud to the class by the teacher in the old schoolhouse, and began to think of himself as a hero. He would do the heroic.

It was a very unusual thing for bitterness to tingle Jerry's voice, and it augured a bruised heart. "I'm big amongst leetle fellers," he replied. "But along side him, I'm a runt." "Ef he's got some thing ye hain't got, like es not, hit wucks t'other way round too. Ye're strong enough an' ye've got gentleness." Jerry leaned forward to her.

But from the time an American youngster begins to steal apples and junk and throw snowballs and break windows a healthy fear of a regular cop is ingrained in him.

Even a perfectly law-abiding citizen walking home late feels a little tingle of anxiety in him when he marches past a cop.

Now and then the train would start up some more tempting game. A brace or two of partridges or a covey of quails would settle down in the stubble, or a cock pheasant drop head and tail and slide into the copse. Rabbits also would scamper back from the borders of the fields into the thickets or peep slyly out, making my sportsman's fingers tingle.
