"Faugh " Jerry began, but Dick interrupted. "If you two asses are trying to say pshaw you are both wrong. I happened to see it in the dictionary a few days ago and it is pronounced shaw; it's a silly sort of word anyhow. No one uses it in real life. Shut your jaws and stop your shaws and let's go and get a drink."

Don't disturb it till I come." "Thankee, sir, I won't." "Now then, Raywood," said Charlie, descending to the cabin, where his patient was already busy reading Maury's Physical Geography of the Sea, "let's have a look at the gum." "Oh, it's all right," said Raywood. "D'you know, I think one of the uses of severe pain is to make one inexpressibly thankful for the mere absence of it.

The information furnished in answer would reach the unassailable authority of print, giving Deadham opportunity to read the complimentary truth about itself. Still better, giving others opportunity to read the complimentary truth about Deadham. Hence trade and traffic of sorts, with much incidental replenishing of purses. Great are the uses of a dead prophet to the keepers of his tomb!

And Biasi, the notary, who comes to me to be shaved, uses another word that just fits the case, begging your honor's pardon." "Then, according to you, this Don Nicasio " "Oh, I won't put my finger in the pie! Let him answer for himself.

The Church professes to place in each parish an official teacher of religion and morality, and most of the Nonconformist communities do the same. The lecturer who comes from Oxford or Cambridge, delivers his course, and departs, has no doubt his uses. He is like the "Hot Gospeller" of an earlier age, or the "Missioner" of to-day.

He had won a success which added a new material to art and commerce, and one which could be applied in a thousand different ways, and all of them useful to man. But great as his success was, he was not satisfied with it. To the end of his life his constant effort was to improve his invention, and apply it to new uses.

One of them, which is more imposing and uncomfortable than the rest, is obviously for the Bishop when he comes. There are no papers, no books, no ash-trays, no confusion. I have never seen M. le Curé sit there. I fancy he lives in the kitchen and in his garden. Timothy sleeps in the bed which the Bishop uses, and is told he ought to feel très saint. The wife of the schoolmaster cooks for us.

Some days are like tin cocoanut graters that everybody uses to grate you against and this was one for me. For an hour I sat and grated my own self against Alfred's letter that had come in the morning. I realized that I would just have to come to some sort of decision about what I was going to do, for he wrote that he was to sail in a day or two, and ships do travel so fast these days.
