'I had rather be a toad, And live upon the vapour of a dungeon, Than keep a corner in the thing I love For other's use. I am too full of phrensy, Fairfax, to tell thee what I mean: but she has given me another proof, more damning even than all the former, of the gluttony with which her soul gorges. Her gloating eye devours him; ay, I being present.

To be sure he was anxious to look his best when old Mother Nature came, so he got a new suit all ready. But Mr. Toad couldn't afford to sit around in idleness admiring his new clothes. No indeed!

'Toad he went a-pleasuring! he yelled. 'I'LL pleasure 'em! and he went straight for the Chief Weasel.

A hundred bloodthirsty badgers, armed with rifles, are going to attack Toad Hall this very night, by way of the paddock.

The saucer in which he mixes his ink is in itself a little gem. It is chiselled out of a piece of jade, and represents a tiny lake with a carved border imitating rockwork. On this border is a little mamma toad, also in jade, advancing as if to bathe in the little lake in which M. Sucre carefully keeps a few drops of very dark liquid.

"I've heard, before now, of little folks having frogs in their throats," said she. "Is that what you mean?" "I guess so," sobbed Prudy. "And it was alive just as alive as could be! O, O!
