The cloth was coarse, but it was a tablecloth--nota spare sheet put on in honour of unexpected visitors--and perfectlyclean. The tin plates, pannikins, and jam tins that served as sugarbowls and salt cellars were polished brightly. The walls and fireplacewere whitewashed, the clay floor swept, and clean sheets of newspaperlaid on the slab mantleshelf under the row of biscuit tins that held thegroceries. I thought that his wife, or housekeeper, or whatever she was,was a clean and tidy woman about a house. I saw no woman; but on thesofa--a light, wooden, batten one, with runged arms at the ends--lay awoman's dress on a lot of sheets of old stained and faded newspapers.He looked at it in a puzzled way, knitting his forehead, then took itup absently and folded it. I saw then that it was a riding skirt andjacket. He bundled them into the newspapers and took them into thebedroom. His arms fell, and his face went white. I got the water-bag. "Anotherturn like that and you'll be gone," I thought, as he came to again. ThenI suddenly thought of a shanty that had been started, when I came thatway last, ten or twelve miles along the road, towards the town. Therewas nothing for it but to leave him and ride on for help, and a cart ofsome kind.【的核】,【希望】【掉一】【药养】【av网页】【扰我】 "But you know very well I haven't got a shilling, Ernie," she said,quietly.

A youngor unmarried man can form new ties, and even make new sweethearts ifnecessary, but Peter's heart was with his wife and little ones at home,and they were mortgaged, as it were, to Dame Fortune. Peter had to liftthis mortgage off.

The stocking must be worn and nicely darned; onethat's been worn will keep the shape of the leg and foot--at leasttill it's washed again. Well, the barmaid generally knows what time thegentlemen go to bath, and she'll make it a point of going down just asa gentleman's going. Of course he'll give her the preference--let her gofirst, you know--and she'll go in and accidentally leave the stockingin a place where he's sure to see it, and when she comes out he'll go inand find it; and very likely he'll be a jolly sort of fellow, and whenthey're all sitting down to breakfast he'll come in and ask them toguess what he's found, and then he'll hold up the stocking. The barmaidlikes this sort of thing; but she'll hold down her head, and pretendto be confused, and keep her eyes on her plate, and there'll be muchblushing and all that sort of thing, and perhaps she'll gammon to bemad at him, and the landlady'll say, 'Oh, Mr. Smith! how can yer?

I thought it would have come down every step, andfallen like an old rotten humpy in a gust of wind. And the old man wasnot much better off. I saw at once that he was a very sick man. His facewas drawn, and he bent forward as if he was hurt.
