I hit David in the dark, and he holloaed out." "And enough to make any one, warn't it, sir? Scythes and scithers, it was a sharp 'un!" "I don't think it was any sharper than the two you hit me, David," said Tom, who was writhing a little as he rubbed.

I had heard of hurricanes in the woods, and surmised that one was at hand. It soon came crashing its way; the forest writhing, and twisting, and groaning before it.
