And, taking up his whip, he prepared to drive away. "How long have they been as bad as this?" The cabman dropped his hand again, as though glad to rest it, and answered incoherently: "Thirty-five year I've been drivin' a cab." And, sunk again in contemplation of his horse's tail, he could only be roused by many questions to express himself, having, as it seemed, no knowledge of the habit.

He had left his friends while hunting, and came in booted and spurred, and whip in hand. "Dear Paul," said Natalie, "you don't know what an answer you are giving to madame." When Paul heard of the gossip that was current in Bordeaux, he laughed instead of being angry.

There were bars of snow over which we must pilot our top in the spoon end of our whip; then again we would toss it in the air on to another open spot of ice or smooth snow-crust from twenty to fifty paces away. The top that holds out the longest is the winner. We loved to play in the water.

"What acknowledgment?" asked the Whip sipping his port wearily, for such negotiations were no new thing to him. "I mean, how do you spell it?"

Old man Balm Whitlow can tell you all about the way they held church. They would slip off in the woods and carry a gang of darkies down, and the next morning old master would whip them for it.

I was speechless with frightened delight over her words, and the pressure of her hand. I turned to the trainer before I went to my room over the tin-shop. "You say the leopards are most dangerous?" "Yes." "For twenty-five dollars a night I will go in with them, alone, and run them around with a whip."
