His hair and beard were grown long; many a gray thread shone in his chestnut locks; his mouth was a firm feature; his eyes quiet, but not the mildest; his forehead very ample; he was lofty in stature;--outside the prison, a freeman, his presence would have been commanding.
(SCENE.--Outside the gate of the Astronomical Observatory at Albany.)
It was a long time after this before I ventured to move, for here it seemed to me that for the moment I was safe,--outside the city, yet not within reach of the dangers of that intermediate space which grew clearer before me as my eyes became accustomed to the lurid threatening afternoon light.
-25- The disposition of the funds, also,--of both the people and the empire, I mean, whether in Rome or in the rest of Italy or outside,--should be entirely in the hands of the knights.
It is situate in an extensive lawn, interspersed with shrubberies, from whence there are variegated and extensive prospects, the churches of Birmingham, Solihull, and Yardley being distinctly seen, backed by Barr-beacon, the Rowley hills, &c. and withoutside of the lawn the spire of Coleshill church is a pleasing object.
A.--Outside cylinders are so designated when placed upon the outside of the framing, with their connecting rods operating upon pins in the driving wheels; while the inside cylinders are situated within the framing, and the connecting rods attach themselves to cranks in the driving axle.
To insure the success of the assassination, Milan Ciganowic instructed Princip Gabrinowic in the use of the grenades and gave instructions in shooting with Browning pistols to Princip Grabez in a forest near the target practice field of Topshider--(outside Belgrade).
SCENE III.--Outside kitchen.
Although they saw much heavy floe ice, some of it aground even in nine fathom water, yet none of it bore marks of being more than one season old; and from the heights of land they could discern lanes of open water outside,--so that a ship, properly strengthened for such a voyage, could make way through it with a favouring breeze.
"But the end of it is, dear"--how that small word tore into the heart of Donnegan, who crouched outside--"that you must go back tomorrow morning.
"Why, sir," said Nick, "it is not so dark outside--'tis scarcely noon; and thou wilt soon be out."
I had to back water with some force, and, skirting the reef, stood on till fairly outside,--when, turning shoreward again, I went on to the edge of the surf.
Intellect is to a woman's nature what her watch-spring skirt is to her dress; it ought to underlie her silks and embroideries, but not to show itself too staringly on the outside.--You don't know, perhaps, but I will tell you;--the brain is the palest of all the internal organs, and the heart the reddest.
divided into 60, to each of which a new title had been printed; and several hundred volumes lettered outside Oeuvres de Miss Burney, Oeuvres de Swift, &c., but containing, in fact, all sorts of French waste paper books.
I'll lock my cheese within the chest, My butter I will hide; I'll bar the byre at milking time, Although you'll wait outside-- You'll maybe go another way-- Who'll care for you to bide?
Yet she could think forward to one occurrence only that could give her respite and a frail chance for freedom: if they would only fight as, in some dim instinctive way, it was given her to understand that such men would fight once a wrathful blow had been given and taken--if the others would only watch them and not her, if she could come to one of the rifles--or outside---- She turned to Jarrold.
After considerable thought he wrote out a telegram of some length, and carried it himself to the telegraph office in the station outside:-- "To Franklin Fullaway, Waldorf Hotel, London.
But it was not this that had roused him, he thought as he lay blinking drowsily,--nor the black-bird piping so wonderfully in the apple-tree outside,--a very inquisitive apple-tree that had writhed, and contorted itself most un-naturally in its efforts to peep in at the window;--therefore Bellew fell to wondering, sleepily enough, what it could have been.
Does this mean that the totality of matter is finite?--that it can be viewed, spiritually, from the outside,--even from such a distance as to appear infinitely small?
"I think I--would rather you waited outside,--if you don't mind, Mr. Bellew."
It was a ledger, iron-bound, with the name of the firm on the outside,--Knowles & Co. You may have heard of the firm: they were large woollen manufacturers: supplied the home market in Indiana for several years.
And she spoke of purity as though it were a virtue which could be created and consecrated simply by the action of her own heart, as though nothing outside,--no ceremony, no ordinance,--could affect it.
And many a day, since promotion to a swifter craft, have they rowed with patient stroke down the lovely lake, still attended by their guide, philosopher, and coxswain,--along banks where herds of young birch-trees overspread the sloping valley and ran down in a blaze of sunshine to the rippling water,--or through the Narrows, where some breeze rocked the boat till trailing shawls and ribbons were water-soaked, and the bold little foam would even send a daring drop over the gunwale, to play at ocean,--or to Davis's Cottage, where a whole parterre of lupines bloomed to the water's edge, as if relics of some ancient garden-bower of a forgotten race,--or to the dam by Lily Pond, there to hunt among the stones for snakes' eggs, each empty shell cut crosswise, where the young creatures had made their first fierce bite into the universe outside,--or to some island, where white violets bloomed fragrant and lonely, separated by relentless breadths of water from their shore-born sisters, until mingled in their visitors' bouquets,--then up the lake homeward again at nightfall, the boat all decked with clematis, clethra, laurel, azalea, or water-lilies, while purple sunset clouds turned forth their golden linings for drapery above our heads, and then unrolling sent northward long roseate wreaths to outstrip our loitering speed, and reach the floating-bridge before us.
Lucretius long ago described their miserable state, and the truth of his description may be still recognized to-day, in the life of every great capital--where the rich man is seldom in his own halls, because it bores him to be there, and still he returns thither, because he is no better off outside;--or else he is away in post-haste to his house in the country, as if it were on fire; and he is no sooner arrived there, than he is bored again, and seeks to forget everything in sleep, or else hurries back to town once more.
That is the way of the wild animals; each has his own run, and for that he will fight an outsider that he would be afraid of at any other place.
He cared as much for them as ever and his respect was as great, but now he realized that outsiders could never understand them as he did, and that always to others they must appear ridiculous.
I took but one short walk through the city, in which I saw the outsides of a few old churches and got a hard fall on the pavement.
