But he looked at her and through her with royal disdain, and so passed her by.
He looked at it for a moment,--hesitated,--touched the inner corner of his right eye with the pulp of his middle finger,--looked at the face of the watch,--said it was getting into the forenoon,--then opened the watch and handed me the loose outside case without a word.--The watch-paper had been pink once, and had a faint tinge still, as if all its tender life had not yet quite faded out.
Elinor Hadden's sweet child-face, always gentle and good-humored, though visited little yet with the deep touch of earnest thought,--smiling upon life as life smiled upon her,--looked lovelier to Leslie as this whisper made itself heard in her heart; and it was with a sweeter patience and a more believing kindliness that she answered, and tried to enter into, her next merry words.
But did you see how Nadya and Liza--the hussies!--looked at me?
Madeline turned upon her with a surprised air, inquiringly,--looked in her own hands, and shook her handkerchief with the quick, nervous, alarmed movement of one who suddenly discovers a very particular loss,--became, in an instant, pale as death, stared for a moment at Miss Wimple with fixed eyes, and slightly shivered.
On the other side, the Federalists returned cheer for cheer,--looked with true British contempt on the warlike struggles of the restless Frenchman,--chuckled over the disasters which befell "his little popgun fleets,"--and damned the Democrats for a pack of poor, dirty, blasphemous cutthroats.
He turned and looked at it--the poor little face!--looked at it gravely and long.
when it may be I have found, or shall find"-- Here Jacqueline hesitated,--looked at Elsie.
Hadad went to the rear of the train, climbing along the footboard of the third-class cars to the caboose to throw some sort of bluff to the conductor, who came forward--called me "Colonel" and Hadad "Excellency" --looked our prisoners over--recognized no friends--and said that everything was "quite all right."
It was a rusty, rattle-bag concern--a relic of the dark ages of cycling--and .looked as if it had not been used for a twelvemonth.
Never saw I his abominable eyes look as then they looked-- Triumph in them!--fierce and wild; and more disagreeable than the women's at the vile house appeared to me when I first saw them: and at times, such a leering, mischief-boding cast!--I would have given the world to have been an hundred miles from him.
And to its windows went the soul and looked:-- Lo!
She felt she must sit down, and, passing into the silent chapel, lit only with dim reflections from without, she sank on to a seat and thought of little but that it was good to be sitting down, and that the darkness was good, and that there looming out of the shadow was Theophil's pulpit, and beneath was her little harmonium,--to-morrow night would be her choir-practice, she mustn't forget that; no, she mustn't forget that--and then the darkness began to frame flashing pictures of that dreadful glimpse of brightness--were they still standing like that?--how happy they looked!--and would they always go on standing together in brightness like that, while she sat here in the darkness.
Monotonous as the flat-woods were, however, and malarious as they looked,--arid wastes and stretches of stagnant water flying past the car window in perpetual alternation, I was impatient to get into them.
It was a terrible sight upon which they looked,--Dredlinton's face like a piece of marble, white to the lips, the eyes open and staring, the unmistakable finger of Death written across it.
My father had never done it before--that I know of--and he looked"--her voice broke for a moment--"so strange, so ghost-like.
This startled us all:--How the women looked!--How they pursed their mouths; a broad smile the moment before upon each, from the verses they had heard repeated, so well understood, as we saw, by their looks!
His boy followed close beside him, looking where his father looked,--if with a lesser interest at the charts, with as great an intentness at the photographs.
I wanted to see just what they were doing, and just how they looked,--just how she looked.
I could have laughed to see how puzzled the Mother Theresa looked;--much she knows about conserves!
Miss Wimple said nothing; but she treated Pity to two poor little lies;--one she told, and the other she looked:--She was not well, she said, which was the reason why she was so pale; and then she looked surprised at the news of Madeline's flitting.
Thou so wholly then Wert busied with his spirit, who once rul'd The towers of Hautefort, that thou lookedst not That way, ere he was gone.
The opinions and language of the honest party are detailed with the accuracy of a witness; and he who could open to our view the state of the Scottish peasantry, perishing in the field or on the scaffold, and driven to utter and just desperation, in attempting to defend their first and most sacred rights; who could place before our eyes the leaders of these enormities, from the notorious Duke of Lauderdale downwards to the fellow mind that executed his behest, precisely as they lived and looked,--such a chronicler cannot justly be charged with attempting to extenuate or throw into the shade the corruptions of a government that soon afterwards fell a victim to its own follies and crimes.
I would have been glad to see how my charmer then looked.--To be sure she was at a loss in her own mind, to justify herself for resenting so highly an offence so trifling.--She hesitated--did not presently speak.--When she did, she wished that she, (Miss Rawlins,) might never meet with any man who would take such innocent liberties with her.

Leo, from one of the devastated hills of Rome,--once crowned with palaces, temples, and monuments,--looked out upon the Christian world, and saw the desolation spoken of by Jeremy the prophet, as well as by the Cumaean sibyl: all central power hopelessly prostrated; law and justice by-words; provinces wasted, decimated, and anarchical; literature and art crushed; vice, in all its hateful deformity, rampant and multiplying itself; false opinions gaining ground; Christians adopting the errors of Paganism; soldiers turned into banditti; the contemplative hiding themselves in caves and deserts; the rich made slaves; barbarians everywhere triumphant; women shrieking in terror; bishops praying in despair,--a world disordered, a pandemonium of devils let loose, one terrific and howling mass of moral and physical desolation such as had never been seen since Noah entered into the ark.
Then, all at once, with a sudden gesture he drew a large, silver watch from his pocket,--rather as if it were some weapon of offence,--looked at it, listened to it, and then nodding his head, rose to his feet.
We would not be o'erlooked.
The next Sunday there was to be the sacrament, and Karen looked at the black shoes, then looked at the red ones,--looked at them again, and put on the red shoes.
His comic fancy lurked in the outermost and most unlooked-for images of association,--which, indeed, maybe said to be the components of humor; nevertheless, I think they did not extend beyond the quaint, in fulfilment and success.
Dyer himself, an amiable little old man, who took water internally and eschewed strong liquors, lay on his host's bed, hidden by blankets; his head, on which was his short gray hair, alone peered out; and this, having been rubbed dry by a resolute hand,--by the maid's, I believe, who assisted at the rescue,--looked as if bristling with a thousand needles.
The speaker--a neckless, broad-shouldered ruffian of the type known in England as "unemployed"--looked round with triumphant head well thrown back.
We've too much at stake to make a mistake, and Jake may see a point that we've overlooked.
It was not to be wondered at that, for reasons of state, defects were overlooked,--at such periods were even deemed necessary.
But that 'six princes' is the true reading is clear from the parallel passage in "Richard the Third," which I am surprised that the usually accurate Mr. Brown should have overlooked,--'Methinks there be Six Richmonds in the field.'"
From these unlooked- for circumstances, some of the Spaniards named these islands Islas de los Cruzos, or the Islands of Crosses and others called them Islas de los Matelotes, or the Islands of Companions.
