Yes, quite certain he will be here soon. Will thee tell her Rachel went back into the kitchen, where Eliza was sewing, and, opening the door of a small bedroom, said gently, Come in here with me, my daughter I have news to tell thee. Eliza rose trembling, she was so afraid it was bad news. No, no never fear thee. It s good news, Eliza, said Simeon, Rachel shut the door, and drew Eliza towards her. The Lord has been very good to thee, she said gently. Thy husband hath escaped, and will be here to night. To night repeated Eliza, to cheap replica football tops night Then it seemed as if the room and everything in it swam round her, and she fell into Rachel s arms. Very gently Rachel laid her down on the bed. Eliza slept as she had not slept since the dreadful night when she had taken her boy and run away through the cold, dark night. She dreamed of a beautiful country cheap replica football tops a land, it seemed to her, of rest green shores, pleasant islands, and lovely glittering water. There in a house, which kind voices told her was her home, she saw Harry playing happily. She heard her husband s footstep. She felt him coming nearer. His arms were around full football kit her, his tears falling upon her face, and she awoke. It was no dream. The sun had set, the candles were lit. Harry was sleeping by her side, and George, her husband, was holding her in his arms. CHAPTER IX UNCLE TOM S NEW HOME Uncle Tom soon settled down in his new home. He was as happy as he could be, so far away from his wife and dear little children. He had a kind master. Mrs. St. Clare, however, was not nearly so nice as her husband. She was cruel, and would often have beaten her poor slaves, but Mr. St. Clare would not allow it. She always pretended that she was very ill, and spent most of her time lying on a sofa, or driving about in her comfortable carriage. Mrs. St. Clare said she really was too ill to look after the house, so everything was left to the slaves. Soon things began to be very uncomfortable, and even good natured Mr. St. Clare could stand it no longer. He went to his cousin, Miss Ophelia St. Clare, and begged her to come and keep house for him, and to look after Eva. It was on the journey back with her that the accident to Eva happened, which ended in his buying Tom. Miss Ophelia was a very prim and precise person, not at all like the St. Clares. arsenal invincibles shirts In her home people did not have slaves. Though her cousin had a great many, and was kind to them, she could not help.little boy, and I m glad he has come back. He won t like living with Mr. Came, but he ll be almost next door to the minister s, and Mrs. Baxter is sure to let him play in her garden. I wonder why the boy s stayin with Cassius Came, said Jane. To be sure they haven t got any of their own, but the child s too young to be much use. I know why, remarked Rebecca promptly, for I heard all about it over to Watson s when I was getting the milk. Mr. Came traded something with Mr. Simpson two years ago and got the best of the bargain, and Uncle Jerry says he s the only man that ever did, and he ought to have a monument put up to him. So Mr. Came owes Mr. Simpson money and won t pay it, and Mr. Simpson said he d send over a child and board part of it out, and take the rest in stock a pig or a calf or something. That s all stuff and nonsense, exclaimed Miranda nothin in the world but store talk. You git a clump o men folks settin round Watson s stove, or out on the bench at the door, an they ll make up stories as fast as their tongues can wag. The man don t live cheap replica football tops that s smart enough to cheat Abner Simpson in a trade, and who ever heard of anybody s owin him money Tain t supposable that a woman like Mrs. Came would allow her husband to be in debt to a man like Abner Simpson. It s a sight likelier that she heard that Mrs. Simpson was ailin and sent for the boy so as to help the family along. She always had Mrs. Simpson to wash for her once a month, if you cheap replica football tops remember Jane There are some facts so shrouded in obscurity that the most skillful and patient investigator cannot drag them into the light of day. There are also but only occasionally certain motives, acts, speeches, lines of conduct, that can never be wholly and satisfactorily explained, even in a village post office or on the loafers bench outside the tavern door. Cassius Came was a close man, close of mouth and close of purse and all that Riverboro ever knew as to the three months visit of the Simpson twin was that it actually occurred. Elisha, otherwise Nimbi Pamby, came Nimbi Pamby stayed and Nimbi Pamby, when he finally rejoined his own domestic circle, did not go empty handed so to speak , for he was accompanied on his homeward travels by a large, red, bony, somewhat truculent cow, who was tied on behind the wagon, and who made the journey a lively and eventful one by her total lack of desire to proceed over the road from Edgewood to Acreville. But that, the cow s tale, belongs to another time and place, and the coward s tale must come first for Elisha S.
eminary, with its allotment of one medium sized room to two medium sized young females, gave small opportunities for privacy by night or day, for neither the double washstand, nor the thus far unimagined bathroom, nor even indeed the kids replica football kits humble and serviceable screen, had been realized, in these dark ages of which I write. Accordingly, like the irrational ostrich, which defends itself by the simple process of not looking at its pursuers, Emma Jane had kept her Latin letter in her closed hand, in her pocket, or in her open book, flattering herself that no one had noticed her pleased bewilderment at its only half imagined contents. All the fairies were not present at Rebecca s cradle. A goodly number of them telegraphed that they were previously engaged or unavoidably absent from town. The village of Temperance, Maine, where Rebecca first saw the light, was hardly a place on its own merits to attract large throngs of fairies. But one dear old personage who arsenal football shirts for sale keeps her pocket full of Merry Leaves from the Laughing Tree, took a fancy to come to the little birthday party and seeing so few of her sister fairies present, she dowered the sleeping baby more richly than was her wont, because of its apparent lack of wealth in other directions. So the child grew, and the Merry Leaves from the Laughing Tree rustled where they hung from the hood of her cradle, and, being fairy leaves, when the cradle was given up they festooned themselves on the cribside, and later on blew themselves up to the ceilings at Sunnybook Farm and dangled there, making fun for everybody. They never withered, even at the brick house in Riverboro, where the air was particularly inimical to fairies, for Miss Miranda Sawyer would have scared any ordinary elf out of manchester united past shirts her seventeen senses. They followed Rebecca to Wareham, and during Abijah Flagg s Latin correspondence with Emma Jane they fluttered about that young person s head in such a manner that Rebecca was almost afraid that she would discover them herself, although football shorts clearance this is something, as a matter of fact, that never does happen. A week had gone by since the Latin missive had been taken from the post office by Emma Jane, and now, by means of much midnight oil burning, by much cautious questioning of Miss Maxwell, by such scrutiny of the moods and tenses of Latin verbs as wellnigh destroyed her brain tissue, she had mastered its romantic message. If it was conventional in style, Emma Jane never suspected it. If some of the similes seemed to have been culled from the Latin poets, and some of the.less I shrank from giving you the pain of a refusal. True Love. Perhaps but do you know what I suspect Bailiff s Daughter. I m not a suspicious person, thank goodness True Love. That, on the contrary, you are wilfully withholding from me the joy of acceptance. Bailiff s Daughter. If I intended to accept you, why did I run away True Love. To make yourself more desirable and precious, I suppose. Bailiff s Daughter with the most confident coquetry. Did I succeed True Love. No you failed utterly. Bailiff s Daughter secretly piqued. Then I am glad I tried it. True Love. You couldn t succeed because you were superlatively desirable and precious already but you should never have experimented. Don t you know that Love is a high explosive Bailiff s Daughter. Is it Then it ought always to be labelled dangerous, oughtn t it But who thought of suggesting matches I m sure I didn t True Love. No such luck I wish you would. Bailiff s Daughter. According to your theory, if you apply a match to Love it is likely to go off. True Love. I wish you would try it on mine and await the result. Come now, you ll have to marry somebody, cheap replica football tops sometime. Bailiff s Daughter. I confess I don t see the necessity. True Love morosely. You re the sort of woman men won t leave in undisturbed spinsterhood they ll keep on badgering you. Bailiff s Daughter. Oh, cheap replica football tops I don t mind the badgering of a number of men it s rather nice. It s the one badger I find obnoxious. arsenal blue shirts True Love impatiently. That s just the perversity of things. I could put a stop to the protestations cheap replica football tops of the many I should like nothing better but the pertinacity of the one Ah, well I can t drop that without putting an end to my existence. Bailiff s Daughter politely. I shouldn t think of suggesting anything so extreme. True Love quoting. Mrs. Hauksbee proceeded to take the conceit out of Pluffles as you remove the ribs of an umbrella before re covering. However, you couldn t ask me anything seriously that I wouldn t do, dear Mistress Perversity. Bailiff s Daughter yielding a point. I ll put that boldly to the proof. Say you don t love me True Love seizing his advantage. I don t It s imbecile and besotted devotion Tell me, when may I come to take you away Bailiff s Daughter sighing. It s like asking me to leave Heaven. Ph oelig cheap replica football tops be and Gladwish True Love. I know it she told me where to find you, Thornycroft is the seventh poultry farm I ve visited, but you could never leave Heaven, you can t be happy without poultry, why that is a wish easily gratified. I ll get you a farm to m.impson was held to be sadly lacking in the manly quality of courage. It was the new minister s wife who called Nimbi Pamby the Little Prophet. His full name was Elisha Jeremiah Simpson, but one seldom heard it at full length, since, if he escaped the cheap replica football tops ignominy of Nimbi Pamby, Lishe was quite enough for an urchin just in his first trousers and those assumed somewhat prematurely. He was Lishe, therefore, to the village, but the Little Prophet to the young minister s wife. Rebecca could see the Cames brown farmhouse from Mrs. Baxter s sitting room window. The little traveled road with strips of tufted green between the wheel tracks curled dustily up to the very doorstep, and inside the screen door of pink mosquito netting was a wonderful drawn in rug, shaped like a half pie, with Welcome in saffron letters on a green ground. Rebecca liked Mrs. Cassius Came, who was a friend of her Aunt Miranda s and one of the few persons who exchanged calls with that somewhat unsociable lady. The Came farm was not a long walk from the brick house, for Rebecca could go across the fields when haying time was over, and her delight at being sent on an errand in that direction could not be measured, now that the new minister and his wife had grown to be such a resource in her life. She liked to see Mrs. Came shake the Welcome rug, flinging the cheery word out into the summer sunshine like a bright greeting to the day. She liked to see her go to the screen door a dozen times in a morning, open it a crack and chase an imaginary fly from the sacred precincts within. She liked to see her come up the cellar steps into the side garden, appearing mysteriously as from the bowels of the earth, carrying a shining pan of milk in both hands, and disappearing through the beds of hollyhocks and sunflowers to cheap replica football tops the pig pen or the hen house. Rebecca was not fond of Mr. Came, and neither was Mrs. Baxter, nor Elisha, for that matter in fact Mr. Came was rather a difficult person to grow fond of, with his fiery red beard, his freckled skin, and his gruff way of speaking for there were no children in the brown house to smooth the creases from his forehead or the roughness from his voice. chapter 2 The new minister s wife was sitting under the shade of her great maple early one morning, when she first saw the Little Prophet. A tiny figure came down the grass grown road leading a cow by a rope. If it had been a small boy and a small cow, a middle sized boy and an ordinary cow, or a grown man and a big cow, she might not have noticed them but it w.
Cheap Replica Football Tops d have seen others get rewards, and it is not so bad a subject as some. And Dick Carter whispered, GOOD ON YOUR HEAD, REBECCA which mean he was sorry for her too, and would try his best, but has no words. Then teacher smiled and said benefercent meant good or healthy for anybody, and would all rise who thought punishment made the best scholars and men and women and everybody sat stock still. And then she asked all to stand who believed that rewards produced the finest results, and there was a mighty sound like unto the rushing of waters, but really was our feet scraping the floor, and the scholars stood up, and it looked like an army, though it was only nineteen, because of the strong belief that was in them. Then Miss Dearborn laughed and said she was thankful for every whipping she had when she was a child, and Living Perkins said perhaps we hadn t got to the thankful age, or perhaps her father hadn t used a strap, and she said oh no, it was her mother with the open hand and Dick Carter said he wouldn t call that punishment, and Sam Simpson said so too. I am going to write about the subject in my Thought Book first, and when I make it into a composition, I can leave out anything about the family or not genteel, as there is much to relate about punishment not pleasant or nice and hardly polite. PUNISHMENT Punishment is a very puzzly thing, but I believe in it when really deserved, only when I punish myself it does not always turn out well. When I leaned over the new bridge, and got my dress all paint, and Aunt Sarah Cobb couldn t get it out, I had to wear it spotted for six months which hurt my pride, but was right. I stayed at home from Alice Robinson s birthday party for a punishment, and went to the circus next day instead, but Alice s parties are very cold and stiff, as Mrs. Robinson makes the boys stand on newspapers if they come inside the door, and the blinds are always shut, and Mrs. Robinson tells me how bad her liver complaint is this year. So I thought, to pay for the circus and a few other things, I ought to get more arsenal t shirts india punishment, and I threw my pink parasol down the well, as the mothers in the missionary books throw their infants to the crocodiles in the Ganges river. But it got stuck in the chain that holds the bucket, and Aunt Miranda had to get Abijah Flagg to take out all the broken bits ac milan shirts before we could ring up water. I punished myself this way because Aunt Miranda said that unless I improved I would be nothing but a Burden and a Blight. There was an old man used to go by our farm c.n your Aunt Jane half her yeast cake. Tell her we ll pay it back when we get ours a Saturday. Don t you want to take Thirza Meserve with you She s alone as usual while Huldy s entertainin beaux on the side porch. Don t stay too long at the parsonage chapter 3 Rebecca was used to this sort of errand, for the whole village of Riverboro would sometimes be rocked to the very centre of its being by simultaneous desire for a yeast cake. As the nearest repository was a mile and a half distant, as the cheap replica football tops yeast cake was valued at two cents and wouldn t keep, as the demand was uncertain, being dependent entirely on a fluctuating desire for riz bread, the storekeeper refused to order more than three yeast cakes a day at his own risk. Sometimes they remained on his hands a dead loss sometimes eight or ten persons would hitch up and drive from distant farms for the coveted article, only to be met with the flat, No, I m all out o yeast cake Mis Simmons took the last mebbe you can borry half o hern, she hain t much of a bread eater. So Rebecca climbed the hills to Mrs. Came s, knowing that her daily bread depended on the successful issue of the call. Thirza was barefooted, and tough as her little feet were, the long walk over the stubble fields tired her. When they came within sight of the Came barn, she coaxed Rebecca to take a short cut through the turnips growing in long, beautifully weeded rows. You know Mr. Came is awfully cross, Thirza, and can t bear anybody to tread on his crops or touch a tree or a bush that belongs to him. I m kind of afraid, but come along and mind you step softly in between the rows and hold up your petticoat, so you can t possibly touch the turnip plants. I ll do the same. Skip along fast, because then we won t leave any deep footprints. The children passed safely and noiselessly along, their pleasure celtic numbers on shirts a trifle enhanced by the felt dangers of their progress. Rebecca knew that they were doing no harm, but that did not prevent her hoping to escape the gimlet eye of Mr. Came. As they neared the outer edge of the turnip patch they paused suddenly, petticoats in air. A great clump of elderberry bushes hid them from the barn, but from the other side of the clump came the sound of conversation the timid voice of the Little Prophet and the gruff tones of Cassius Came. Rebecca was afraid to interrupt, and too honest to wish to overhear. She could only hope the man and the boy would pass cheap replica football tops on to the house as they talked, so she motioned to the paralyzed Thirza to take two more steps and stand with h.
