Gates complacently, speaking as a man of the world who knows a good thing when he sees it. Gates didn't half get off with her, did you? Gates archly, "that'll do; let's see the cards. He's been called up, you know, so we got him a military one. You see that girl the soldier's squeezing? She's rather like his young lady, you know, and it says, 'Come down to Brightbourne and learn how to carry on.

You see there's a glass of beer, and it says underneath, 'Come where the girls are bright and the tonic's all right. Three men on their hands and knees licking up the whisky spilt from broken bottles. Good Heavens! The idea of sending such a thing to Tilly! Don't be funny at all with either your Uncle or Aunt. We can't run any risks.

Why shouldn't [pg ] Mr. Brown have the whisky one? I'm sure he'd laugh. But you couldn't send Mrs. Venning the old maid. Brown," said the boy. And what about Mrs. Get me another of those and I'll send it to a friend of mine in the City. And I'll go to the shop myself and help you to choose the local views for your Uncle and Aunt Tilly.
It's a case where care is necessary. C'est incroyable. For the rest we lived in the ease which his kind generosity knew how to provide. We loved our own particular boudoir, with its books, its pictures, its comfortable fauteuils and its soft green cushions. One day, we said, it shall be as of old. And we were glad, for we promised ourselves to entertain our brave Allies. Thus might we too serve la patrie.
They came. Mon Dieu! Is it now a hundred years that we hurry to and fro in their service? A House of Rest!

Ma foi! Morning, noon and night they come, these countrymen of yours. Never can we rest. Hither and thither do they drive us. Ah, it is cruel! Our beauty is decayed. The cheeks of my poor sister, that once were so rosy, have lost their colour and our figures their rounded grace. We are loyal, Monsieur, and, though we are no longer pleasing to look upon, we do not grudge our service. But we beg of you, kind M. Punch, to procure for us a respite from our labours, that we may recover something of our former lustre.
Thus shall you merit the undying gratitude and your countrymen regain the devoted services of what were at one time three of France's fairest billiard-balls. The Fatal Embrace. Mackay asked could nothing be done to the seats at Homewood? The resin was oozing out of them.
He had had a valuable pair of pants completely ruined, and the same thing might happen to any lady. The party moved off in file up the slope of the moor, Sir Percy on his pony in front, then the guests with rifles at the trail, next the bearers and orderlies, and in the rear the ammunition-limbers and regimental baggage. A ration-party would follow later. There was to be no singing on the march, but pipes were allowed. Just as we neared the crest of the hill, at a notice bearing the legend, "Keep below," the whole party entered a deep "boyau" leading right up to the trenches in front, from which branched off various passages to the gun pits, or butts, as we used to call them.
Our position was semi-circular in form and about three-quarters of a mile long; its main strength lay in a chain of machine-gun emplacements at intervals of about two hundred yards. These were, needless to say, all armoured, but it was nevertheless considered bad form to fire along the line.
Our instructions had been as follows: "At 10 A. All the birds we got off his place last year actually had tears in their eyes still. At No prisoners will be taken. My personal instructions were to hold my position with two men. Hastily lighting a cigarette and adjusting my map-case, I was standing-to, when the telephone bell tinkled.
The planes are out. Liddell and Scott monoplanes, which circled high up over the moor. A little later I brought down no fewer than seven of the enemy with one beautifully timed bomb, and stole a furtive glance at the others. Nobody had seen me do it. However, I thought, I shall be able to tell them about it at least three times to-night. Meanwhile our bearers were collecting the enemy's dead and finishing off his wounded. Away to the left Sir Percy and half-a-dozen more were gathered round what I took to be the Heather Redoubt, and every now and then a little white puff of smoke broke from the ground.
I always bomb 'em out. I was dozing lazily in the smoking-room, vaguely wondering if I could tell them about it a fourth time, when suddenly the dressing gong went, and someone shook me roughly by the shoulder. Outside a voice was shouting, "Gas! There are few of my friends whom I hold in higher respect than the Fladworths. Fladworth is a prosperous accountant, quite in the front rank of his profession, and for the last three years an indefatigable War-worker.
His two sons joined up on the day War was declared; his three daughters are all nursing, and for the last two years their town house has been a convalescent home. Fladworth is a saint of hospitality, and their country house is always full for the week-end with people who want a rest. And one can accept this hospitality with a good conscience, because they can afford it. It does not involve the painful self-sacrifice shown by some people, of whom it has been happily said that, when their supplies are short, they will insist on your staying for a meal, "even if they have to kill a rabbit with a Christian name.
Moreover, to add to the strain, Fladworth is always inventing new games, "so that all may start fair. One of the party, who did not compete, then decided which was the best experience, and the winner pocketed the pool. I cannot remember all the episodes recounted, though they were for the most part serious and impressive. Fladworth had heard Mr. My turn came last, but I was not in the least helped by having had the longest time to prepare.
I have a wonderful memory for futilities, and when called on could think of nothing better than my recollection of the arrival of Hiawatha at the Channel Islands and the delirium of the populace.
You can imagine my feelings when old Mr. As none of the company was able or disposed to correct him there was nothing left for me to do but to rake in the sixpences. After all, the total only amounted to five and sixpence, and I compounded with my conscience by putting it in the plate on the following morning.
A Tale of the Horse Marines. The cavalry advanced towards the spot and surrounded both the submarine and her crew, who surrendered. Dreamt in a dug-out. Are we to infer that the late Chairman of the Commons' Kitchen Committee is now in business on his own account? This was evidently "a magic casement opening on the foam of perilous seas. MACDONALD, who was cut off in his prime after incautiously adding to his journalistic labours in Paris the voluntary and too exacting duties of entertaining the wounded, to emphasize the Entente Cordiale.
The two best papers in the first volume of the posthumous collection of his writings are those which describe in vivid kindly strokes the triumphant impact of the late KING on the Parisians some fourteen years ago, and the visit, not long after, of five hundred London school-children to the French capital. Had Mr. The War, as we have just been reminded by an impressive memorial service, has made deep gaps in the ranks of English journalists, and the loss of JOHN F. I call her girls sentimental, because for all that they are supposed to be chiefly concerned with living their own lives you will be struck at once with the extent to which they contrive to mix themselves up with the lives of any male creatures who venture over the horizon.
Nor could I help reflecting how much fuller and more vigorous all Mrs. Perhaps this feeling explains a slight impatience which the society of so much struggling femininity eventually produced in me. Young women still live in houses in the Marylebone Road; they still proclaim republics of hardworking celibacy, and fall briskly in love with the first eligible bachelor; but their vocations and their citizenship have both Hoch der KAISER!
So that charming writer, Mrs. For that is precisely what the tales are; and excellently romantic and thrilling chapters too, for the most part dated in the decade following the great Anglo-French peace of a century ago.

Probably [pg ] you couldn't say off-hand what the Black Office was. Let me whisper. It was, amongst other things, a postal censorship that opened and perused all letters intended to cross the Channel. With what natural indignation would you, in July three years ago, have read of such monstrous activities! Truly, as the authors say, there is some interest in the comparison of then and now.
Of the other stories, my own favourites would he "The Resurrectionist" and "The Smile on the Portrait. This is certainly as grim as anything I have met over the Castellated signature. Beside it, "The Smile on the Portrait," the tale of a jealous husband who becomes a maniac, is almost soothing. They had clearly their little worries even a century ago. One has heard so often of works of "absorbing interest" that appeared at "the psychological moment" that one feels a bit squeamish about applying these phrases even to such a book as Mr. By Mr. Punch's Staff of Learned Clerks. In the present volume, touching only incidentally on his journeyings and still less on politics, he has tried to satisfy the thousand-and-one questioners who, one imagines, have been plaguing him not a little lately as to those intimate details that really count in the life of a nation.
He tells us for instance how the Russians do business and keep out the cold; how many of the women you could call pretty, and how much mutton a Kirghiz can eat. Though some of this is not new, yet the book has, as a whole, a most vivid freshness, and, if in the end the main effect is to make one content to live out of Russia, that is a tribute to the writer's frankness. At the least one is able to rejoice in his final verdict of unqualified enthusiasm for his hosts, since he found not merely acquaintances ready to welcome the popular English, but true and trustworthy friends in all classes of the community.
I liked her flapper heroine, Joey, and the naughty nephews, the O. The fact is that "BERTHA RUCK" can achieve something better than these meandering methods and this spinelessness of characterisation; and it is distinctly disappointing to see her content with the curate's egg standard. As he seemed to be roaming about France with the object of getting NAPOLEON out of the way by any means available, I am not certain that he was playing the game, even when we remember that the rules of it were lax enough at the beginning of the nineteenth century.
But we are not asked to weigh carefully the merits of character. It is just a romance of incident, in which a hot pace is set at the start and kept up to the finish. In short you get a good run for your money, and that is all about it.
Joan refuses indignantly on the ground that his views and conduct are opposed to those which as a member of a Suffrage Society she is pledged to eradicate. Why the lady should resent her lover's endorsement of her own opinions is just one of those things that no fellah unless he is a reviewer can understand. He was ordered to go to the industrial cities along the Rhine and the Rhone rivers. It is a pity that the second part of this enterprise had for geographical reasons to be abandoned, for we understand that Lyons would have given him a particularly warm reception.
The Highlanders now go to Chicago to make a similar demonstration. As nothing more has been heard of the matter, it is supposed that the Germans in Chicago prudently refused to wait for them.

Condition: Near VG. November 1, Historically, it was most influential in the s and 50s, when it helped to coin the term "cartoon" in its modern sense as a humorous illustration. It became a British institution, but in Ireland Punch is known for its racist depictions of the Irish, while in the s it declared that the Irish people were 'the missing link between the gorilla and the Negro'.
It was revived in , but closed again in Contents [hide] 1 History 2 Punch and depictions of the Irish 3 Later years 4 Gallery of selected early covers 5 Contributors 5. It was jointly edited by Mayhew and Mark Lemon. Punch, of Punch and Judy; the name also referred to a joke made early on about one of the magazine's first editors, Lemon, that "punch is nothing without lemon". Mayhew ceased to be joint editor in and became "suggestor in chief" until he severed his connection in The magazine initially struggled for readers, except for an "Almanack" issue which shocked its creators by selling 90, copies.
In December due to financial difficulties the magazine was sold to Bradbury and Evans, both printers and publishers. Bradbury and Evans capitalised on newly evolving mass printing technologies and also were the publishers for Charles Dickens and William Makepeace Thackeray. The term "cartoon" to refer to comic drawings was first used in Punch in ; the Houses of Parliament were to be decorated with murals, and "cartoons" for the mural were displayed for the public; the term "cartoon" then meant a finished preliminary sketch on a large piece of cardboard, or cartone in Italian.
Punch humorously appropriated the term to refer to its political cartoons, and the popularity of the Punch cartoons led to the term's widespread use.
