"Pardon the rudeness of my dog, madam," I said, looking up; "I never saw him act in this way before.

"It's your own dog, miss."

No, those cigarettes are not responsible. That peculiarity which you have recently begun to notice is due to quite another cause. Surely you must have always known that she was different from other girls. Have you never thought her excitable, even unaccountable in some of her actions? Has she never told you of strange fancies, strange dreams?

"Well, I am going to put a question to you." "With all my heart, dear mamma." "I invite you to explain to me the most singular, the most unaccountable thing that ever fell under my notice. Will you do this for your mother?" "O mamma! of course I will do anything to please you that I can; but, indeed, I don't know what you mean." "I am going to tell you." The old lady paused.

The chief point now was to keep watch over him as long as there was any danger of that intelligible raving, that unaccountable impulse to tell, which seemed to have acted towards Caleb Garth; and Bulstrode felt much anxiety lest some such impulse should come over him at the sight of Lydgate.

Crystal stood up, trembling with an emotion which Eddie, although he was rather angry himself, considered utterly unaccountable. "Yes," she said, almost proudly, "I am luxurious, I am dependent on those things. But whose fault is that? It's the way I was brought up it's all wrong. But, even though I am dependent on them, I believe I could exist without them.

In the judgment of the majority the conduct of Georgia justified this severe course. Her Legislature, after complying with every condition of reconstruction, took an extraordinary and unaccountable step.
