Mary held the hood and coat to the light and inspected them with a sophisticated eye. Mary discouraged the idea and Humpy took a like view. It was unbelievable that the baby really knew his name, but perhaps it was a good omen that he had hit upon it. The fat legs of the infuriated householder pawed the air as he hugged Wilton, who was now trying to free his head and gain a position of greater dignity.

His folks is rich, I reckon. With his face against the glass he watched the actions of a tall, elderly man with a short, grayish beard, who wore a golf-cap pulled low on his head—points noted by The Hopper in the flashes of an electric lamp with which the gentleman was guiding himself.

Enough was the matter to satisfy The Hopper that a prolonged stay in the neighborhood might be highly detrimental to his future liberty.

Only a jinx of the most malevolent type could have prompted his hurried exit from a train to dodge an imaginary "bull. In all his experiences he had never been cornered by a woman, and he stood gaping at his captor in astonishment. On a New Haven car he debated the prospects of more snow with a policeman who seemed oblivious to the fact that a child had been stolen—shamelessly carried off by a man with a long police record. But Shaver was entitled to all the joys of Christmas, and The Hopper had no desire to deprive him of them. I'm an ole man, Hop. Kind o' queer they left the kid out there in the buzz-wagon; mighty queer, now's I think of ut.

Reversible Santa Claus book

He dismissed the thought of planting the little shaver at a door, ringing the bell and running away; this was no way to treat a friendly child that had done him no injury, and The Hopper highly resolved to do the square thing by the youngster even at personal inconvenience and risk.

The Hopper was so astonished at being addressed in his own lawful name by a strange baby that he barely averted a collision with a passing motor truck. And maybe if they lost these things they'd behave themselves. Wilton had been swallowed up by the deep shadow of the house, but The Hopper was aware, from an occasional scraping of feet, that he was still moving forward.

They've explored China and Japan hunting for prizes and they are experts—men of rare taste and judgment—what you call connoisseurs.

There was nothing in the appearance of this Muriel to encourage a hope that she was either embarrassed or alarmed by his presence. If your IP address is shown by Maxmind to be outside of Germany and you were momentarily blocked, another issue is that some Web browsers erroneously cache the block.

A Reversible Santa Claus

I'm taking the trolley into New Haven to ask Mamie Palmer about that cook she thought we might get, and if possible I'll bring the girl home with me. We gotta play safe, miss, an' ef I land th' jugs I'll find cover till I kin deliver 'em safe.

You'll certainly get back before I do, but if I'm not here don't be alarmed. You didn't understand it, of course; you couldn't—not really. Let down a little by some godawful eye-dialect that, despite being a product of its time, is really only there to mark out the ex-thief and his gang as the economically deprived segment of society adding little to the dialogue.

The Hopper examined the silver pieces and found them engraved with the name borne by the locket. That's the combination of papa's safe. Hookin' a buzz-buzz an' a kid an' when we wuz playin' the white card! The Hopper knew this, and knew, too, that in yielding to the exhilaration of the hour he was likely to come to grief.

The nature of the Something troubled him. There are auctions, you know, and people come from all over the world looking for a chance to buy the rarest pieces. Wuz they empty, miss? Even though he had stolen a baby, it was a merry, brave little baby who didn't mind at all being run away with!

Muriel waited for the last stroke and then spoke crisply and directly. The combatants had rolled a considerable distance away from the shelves and were near a door leading into a room beyond.

Arriving presently at a hamlet, where he paused for breath in the rear of a country store, he found a basket and a quantity of paper in which he carefully packed his loot. He glanced over his shoulder, but saw no pursuing ghost in the snowy highway; then, looking down apprehensively, he detected on the seat beside him what appeared to be an animate bundle, and, prompted by a louder "goo-goo," he put out his hand.

Aikins, alias "Softy" Hubbard, alias Billy The Hopper, paused for breath behind a hedge that bordered a quiet lane and peered out into the highway at a roadster whose tail light advertised its presence to his felonious gaze. It was Christmas Eve, and after a day of unseasonable warmth a slow, drizzling rain was whimsically changing to snow.
