Poor Tommy held it out, and roared lustily at the first blow, wringing his fingers with the smart. "Now your left hand, sir; fair play is a jewel; always carry the dish even." Tommy received a blow on his left hand, which was followed up with similar demonstrations of suffering. "There sir you may go now," said Mr O'Gallagher, "and mind you don't do it again; or else there'll be a blow-up.

Tommy and I were on lookout when we were surprised to see a German crawl to the edge of our trench. I was just going to fire, when Tommy said, "Wait a minute," and he danced around and stuck his bayonet up under the German's nose; up went the hands, and we hauled the wretch in.

Mr Barlow. Now, look, I have just taken away nineteen from the number; how many, do you think, remain? Tommy. I will count them. Mr Barlow. And cannot you tell without counting? How many are there, Harry? Harry. Twenty, sir. Mr Barlow.

I hope we shall have her with us for many summers; then one of these days, when she is older, she, too, will have a camp of girls to look after." "I feel very thorry for the camp," broke in Tommy. "You will have to buy a new camp stool, Daddy," reminded Jane. "I'm glad I'm not so stout that I break up the furniture every time I sit on it." "Yeth, Buthter doeth that," said Tommy, nodding solemnly.

The sparrows will hang about deliberately waiting for a pair of swallows to finish their nest, and then, with a brutal laugh that makes my blood boil, drive the swallows away and take possession of it. And the swallows are so wonderfully patient. "Never mind, old girl," says Tommy Swallow, after the first big cry is over, to Jenny Swallow, "let's try again."

Tommy related all he knew with alacrity and for a time secured old Jeph's attention, as was plain from the way in which he chuckled when he heard how his enemy had been outwitted; but gradually the narrative fell on uninterested ears, and before they regained the town the old man's countenance had become grave and sad, and his mind was evidently wandering among the lights mayhap among the shadows of "other days."

Tommy Johnson, who never seemed to be greatly interested in anything save his work, got up from where he lay close beside the camera tripod and went over to the other side of the gulch where he could see plainer.

"Come along then you coming too, Epstein?" "No." The old comedian smiled affectionately on Tommy as the latter went off with the manager, and then walked away slowly, his lips moving as though he was communing with himself. At the door of the dressing-room the manager left Tommy, who knocked gently.

"Laddie," said he, "the man that can provide such viands is a Thing of Beauty which, as the poet says, is a Joy for Ever. The light in his window is a beacon to the hungry Tommy dragging himself through the viscous wilderness of regulation stew." "I'm afraid it won't be a beacon for very long," said Doggie. "Eh?" queried Phineas sharply.

I am not at all clever, so you must tell me." With Tommy, of course, it was not her money. Except when he had Elspeth to consider, he was as much a Quixote about money as Pym himself; and at no moment of his life was he a snob. "Don't go yet, Mr. Sandys," she begged. "I may have been hasty. And yet why, we are merely acquaintances!"
