They sprinted up to the rapidly increasing crowd, and wriggled, boylike, past obstructing arms and between tense bodies until they found themselves in the inner line of the circle. A carp of a size sufficient to excite the envy of the neighboring fishermen lay with laboring gills upon the water-spattered planking.

"If him me get, he sure kill, after floggee," he exclaimed; "oh! him poor black feel de whip even now," and he wriggled and rubbed his shoulders about, as if undergoing the torture he believed his late master would have inflicted.

He now wriggled away under cover of Hope's dialogue and lighted the fuse, then he came flying back to get safe out of the mine, and leave Hope in his death-trap. But in the meantime Grace Hope came down in the cage, and caught sight of her father and came screaming to him, "Father, father!" "You here, my child!" "There's a plot to murder you!

Occasionally they would shout to some boy to stop the animal, but he always wriggled past and ran on as before. "Let me take your hand, darling," said Jude. "You are getting out of breath." She gave him her now hot hand with apparent willingness, and they trotted along together. "This comes of driving 'em home," she remarked. "They always know the way back if you do that.

The mass split; gaunt wolves leaped high to fall back dead; others wriggled and limped away; others dragged their hind quarters; others darted at the tepee. "No more cartridges!" yelled Jones.

"Well, he looked at me, and I looked at him," said Joel, "and then I said 'Squish! and he bobbed down his head, just a minute, and I jumped and I grabbed him by the neck, and that's all, Polly."

'It strikes me, said he, putting down the lamp, 'our friend Imray has come back. Oh! you would, would you?
