His corporal, Merritt Crawford, was the eldest of the numerous family of Jared Crawford, the blacksmith and wheelwright of the little town, and Tubby Hopkins was the offspring of Mrs. Hopkins a widow in comfortable circumstances.

The good lady having now got her hands upon the Cabinet proceeded to deal faithfully with its two-and-twenty members. Winston Churchill had overridden Lord Fisher upon the question of Gallipoli, and incurred terrible responsibilities. Lord Haldane she called him "Tubby Haldane" was a convicted traitor. "The man's a German out and out. Oh! what if he hasn't a drop of German blood in his veins?

And all because I called Tubby by his nickname! If this keeps on a fellow won't dare to breathe out loud when Grinder is around. What a passionate fellow he is at times! He glares at a fellow as if he was going to eat you up!" While Sam remained on the bench he heard footsteps in the hallway and a howling protest from Tubbs.

Pilar begged him, however, not to allude to the subject again he was dearer to her than her children, and there was nothing she would not do to spare him a moment's unpleasantness. The first visitor whom Wilhelm saw in Pilar's house was a little tubby gentleman with a clean-shaven face and a rosette in his buttonhole, composed of sixteen different colored ribbons at the very lowest computation.

"We forgot all about eating in the gloom but now I believe I could almost follow Hiram's lead and eat some of those fellows as they are." "Well, that's about all you'll get to eat for a long time," remarked Tubby, grimly casting an anxious eye aloft at the filling "sail."

"Dave, there's a flicker behind you. Swat it out!" "Out she goes!" answered the young cowboy. "Tubby, step along with a little more life!" the foreman cried. "Th' fire'll git yo' if yo' don't watch out!" "I'm goin' along as fast as I can, Pete." "Well, move faster. We've got to beat this fire!" Thus with friendly gibes and taunts Pete kept his men at work.

As perhaps some of my young readers may care to know what to take on a similar expedition, is the list, exclusive of meat, which was to be brought from the mainland, and fish, which they expected to catch themselves: "Well," Tubby had remarked, as he gazed attentively at the list, "we won't starve, anyhow."

A flip young fellow named Hoke, agent for a jobber in ice-cream cones, and a tubby old codger named Kalteyer, who facetiously claimed to own a chewing-gum mine, were added competitors for Kedzie's smiles, while Skip teetered between homicide and suicide. Skip was wretched, and Kedzie was enthralled by her own success. She had conquered New York.

"There's no doing anything with a beast like that. Out you go!" And he made as if to thrust it away with his foot. All at once a tender mood came over him. "Tubby," he said in a weary voice, "you've got to be a good girl ... What do you suppose it costs me to see to it that you are? To bring up a motherless child is no easy job for an old sinner.

They had hastily thrown two cases of gasoline into the dinghy before they shoved off so that all that remained to be done was to fill the fast craft's tank and she was ready to be off. "Hold on," warned Rob, as Tubby Hopkins was about to secure the dinghy to the mooring buoy, "we'll tow her along. We may need her. There's lots of shoal water in that Upper Inlet."
