Seite 7 - Robert turned as pale as ashes when he heard his father's voice; for his father always whipped him when he told a lie. His mother went to the door, and unlocked it. " What's all this 1" cried his father, as he came in.
Seite 28 - ... perhaps not one pin in a day ; that is, certainly, not the two hundred and fortieth, perhaps not the four thousand eight hundredth, part of what they are at present capable of performing, in consequence of a proper division and combination of their different operations.
Seite 7 - There," said his father, when he had done, " now go without supper ; you are to have no milk to-night, and you have been whipped. See how liars are served ! " Then turning to Frank, " Come here, and shake hands with me, Frank ; you will have no milk for supper, but that does not signify ; you have told the truth, and have not been whipped, and everybody is pleased with you.

I am very sorry Frank would go to tell her about it.
Seite 47 - Then he snatched the orange out of Ned's hand, and he pushed him with all his force from the basket. Ned, immediately returning, hit him a violent blow which almost stunned him. Still however this good boy, without minding the pain, persevered in defending what was left in his care ; he still held the bridle with one hand, and covered the basket with his other arm as well as he could. Ned struggled in vain...
Seite 3 - Yes, but we shall have none of it : for do not you remember, last Monday, when we threw down the milk, my mother said, we were very careless, and that the next time we did so} we should have no more; and this is the next time ; so we shall have no milk for supper to-night.
Seite 99 - How comes there to be a stone in your shoe ?" " Because of this great hole, mamma — it comes in there ; my shoes are quite worn out. I wish you would be so very good as to give me another pair.
Seite 100 - ... That smell is the smell of new leather." "Is it? Oh!" said Rosamond, looking round, "there is a pair of little shoes; they'll just fit me, I'm sure." "Perhaps they might, but you cannot be sure till you have tried them on, any more than you can be quite sure that you should like the purple vase exceedingly, till you have examined it more attentively." "Why, I don't know about the shoes, certainly, till I've tried; but, mamma, I'm quite sure I should like the flower-pot.
