As we have seen, the expression on his features was severe and serious, and I cannot help thinking that his riding to hounds may have been a little wanting in geniality — perfect in form and satisfying in result— but somehow wanting in that impalpable quality which makes riding over an intricate country with certain people so amusing. .In a point-to-point...

All these things contributed to make up a valuable and respectable citizen.

Moreover, the even and deserved prosperity of his career, his converse — almost identity — with great personages, and the responsible authority of his position may easily have induced a certain semi-royal aloofness. I feel confident that he was never in anything like a scrape — this is of itself quite a misfortune — and I question whether he ever had much to do with the scrapes and shifts of others.
Página 275 - Inhuman, barbarous, unchivalrous." But the genius of modern war requires the use of those weapons which shall inflict the greatest possible damage upon an enemy in the shortest possible time, and hence the once despised torpedo now occupies a place in the front rank. In the short space of a magazine article it is impossible to take more than a mere cursory glance at our subject ; but so complete in its details was the first recorded torpedo boat that it merits more than passing notice. Mr. David...
Página 73 - Remote from cities lived a swain, Unvexed with all the cares of gain; His head was silvered o'er with age, And long experience made him sage; In summer's heat, and winter's cold, He fed his flock and penned the fold; His hours in cheerful...
