It so happened that at that very moment a grave diplomatic crisis had arisen. As a rule, the Armity meets us at the other end with shipping of sorts—Fleet Reserves or regular men-of-war or hulks—anything you can stick a gang-plank to. The first is, that Burns acknowledges that the immortal "Coila" was suggested to him by the muse "Scota" whom Ross invokes; the second, which shows the ingenuity of the professional "critic," is the discovery made by a writer in the North British Review, to the effect that the whole poem is a mythical and fancy portrait — Nory, personifying Britain; Lindy, the Pretender; the Squire, the Prince of Orange; and Bydby, the Popish Church, that seduces Lindy from his first love! Here the boy is taken ill, and is deserted by his companion but is finding favour with the lady of the house, he "very soon became a household bairn.

For many weeks these accusations filled the whole of the press; repeated at public meetings, elaborated in private talk, they flew over the country, growing every moment more extreme and more improbable. The callan's name was Rosalind, and they Yeed hand in hand together at the play, And as the billy had the start of eild, To Nory he was nye a tenty bield; Wad help her up, when she wad chance to fa', Wad gather gowans, and string them on a straw, And knit about her bonny neck and arms; And be as tenty to bear off all harms, As ever hen upo' the midden-head Wad tent her chuckins frae the greedy glaid. His appearance in itself was enough to indicate the infirmity of his physical powers. His first job was as a film cameraman.

The mishanter to the "auld wife's" rock is characteristically set down to poor Maggy Grim rather than to her own carelessness, and the means adopted to circumvent the cantrips of the unchancy body is another proof of the efficacy of the rowan-tree in such cases:— I'll gar my ain Tammie gae down to the flow, And cut me a rock of a widdershins grow, Of good rantry-tree for to carry my tow, And a spindle o' same for the twinin' o't. Our first introduction to the young shepherd and shepherdess affords a glimpse of childhood's innocence, which dwellers in crowded cities are almost inclined to think is almost as extinct as the dodo. We also note that her intelligence failed her a little when confronted with Bolsheviks, Jews or admirers of D. Scott introduced part of this passage in his description of "Knocktarlitie" in the Heart of Midlothian:— Now Flaviana was the country's name, That aye that bonny water-side did claim, Frae yellow sands that trindled down the same. Thus, though the Queen survived her great bereavement for almost as many years as she had lived before it, the chronicle of those years can bear no proportion to the tale of her earlier life. Napoleon's days as Emperor were now numbered.

The Prince and the Minister drew together over their hostility to Russia, and thus it came about that when Victoria found it necessary to summon her old enemy to form an administration she did so without reluctance.

They said at first it would ruin the gate; but when County matches began to be pukka county, plus inter-regimental, affairs the gate trebled, and as two-thirds of the gate goes to the regiments supplying the teams some Volunteer corps fairly wallow in cash.

There were twenty-five thousand men involved—Militia, of course. Her distress and her agitation were great, but she was not seriously frightened. She worked with him, she watched over him, she walked with him through the woods at Osborne, while he whistled to the nightingales, as he had whistled once at Rosenau so long ago.

Unkind critics, who had once compared Albert to an operatic tenor, might have remarked that there was something of the butler about him now. The King received us more than graciously. Deep in the darkness the Baron loomed. Charles and Mary also came in, of course, during their visit, and Mr Musgrove made a point of paying his respects to Lady Russell, and sat down close to her for ten minutes, talking with a very raised voice, but from the clamour of the children on his knees, generally in vain.

They had the dummy Board School guns and flags for positions, but they were rushing their attack much too quick for that open country.

She considered that he was a disreputable adventurer who had usurped the throne of poor old Louis Philippe; and besides he was hand-in-glove with Lord Palmerston.

They suspected plots, they smelt treachery in the air. I could see no sentry at the gates.

Had he not asked Albert to succeed him as commander-in-chief? It was slang originally for beef on the hoof, because in the Military Areas two-thirds of your meat-rations at least are handed over to you on the hoof, and you make your own arrangements.

An ambiguous, prepotent figure had come to disturb the ancient, subtle, and jealously guarded balance of the English Constitution. As Allan Cunningham says, "he copied nature as he found it around him, with all her warts and moles, and was rude and unseemly, not from negligence, but from principle.

But before long she and Albert paid a return visit to France, where everything was very delightful, and she drove incognito through the streets of Paris in a "common bonnet," and saw a play in the theatre at St.

I have no tenacity of life. Nor, in all probability, will anyone else. At last, after a letter of fierce remonstrance from Palmerston, Dr. I won't think of it. She did dull work, as well as first-rate work, throughout her career, for she was essentially an erratic writer.

Victoria declared that it was perfection. When Serbia was relieved, Dr Inglis returned to Britain.
