???To see him so unkind, "You're afraid!" she said with provoking scorn. The detective, himself a bulldozer when he had the chance, was bulldozed, even as a German might be frightened by a taste of his own frightfulness. C. M. T. TO MRS. HAMILTON.

In this exquisite island, and other smaller ones, you wander amongst silent shady woods, or stand so close to the rushing waters, that one or two steps would send you over the brink into the cloudy chasm below.
