Theobald, as an old fellow and tutor of Emmanuel 鈥?at which college he had entered Ernest 鈥?was able to obtain from the present tutor a certain preference in the choice of rooms; Ernest鈥檚, therefore, were very pleasant ones, looking out upon the grassy court that is bounded by the Fellows鈥?gardens. "Kennedy thought it was a trap鈥攖ipped me off," laughed Doyle, swinging his club as he shouted orders to his men to dive into command of each door or window exit. It was dreary work waiting all the morning amid such unfamiliar and depressing surroundings. I thought how the Psalmist had exclaimed with quiet irony, 鈥淥ne day in thy courts is better than a thousand,鈥?and I thought that I could utter a very similar sentiment in respect of the courts in which Towneley and I were compelled to loiter. At last, about three o鈥檆lock the case was called on, and we went round to the part of the court which is reserved for the general public, while Ernest was taken into the prisoner鈥檚 dock. As soon as he had collected himself sufficiently he recognised the magistrate as the old gentleman who had spoken to him in the train on the day he was leaving school, and saw, or thought he saw, to his great grief, that he too was recognised. 成年片黄色大片网站视频 - 视频 - 在线观看 - 影视资讯 - 品善网 鈥淏ehold over there,鈥?said he to F茅lise, 鈥渁 young girl of extraordinary good sense. She is also extremely pretty; a combination which is rare in women.鈥? Mr. Baxter advised Ernest on no account to meddle with Mr. Holt, and Ernest was much relieved at the advice. If an opportunity arose of touching the man鈥檚 heart, he would take it; he would pat the children on the head when he saw them on the stairs, and ingratiate himself with them as far as he dared; they were sturdy youngsters, and Ernest was afraid even of them, for they were ready with their tongues, and knew much for their ages. Ernest felt that it would indeed be almost better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of the little Holts. However, he would try not to offend them; perhaps an occasional penny or two might square them. This was as much as he could do, for he saw that the attempt to be instant out of season, as well as in season, would, St. Paul鈥檚 injunction notwithstanding, end in failure. And how should he best persuade his fellow-countrymen to leave off believing in this supernatural element? Looking at the matter from a practical point of view, he thought the Archbishop of Canterbury afforded the most promising key to the situation. It lay between him and the Pope. The Pope was perhaps best in theory, but in practice the Archbishop of Canterbury would do sufficiently well. If he could only manage to sprinkle a pinch of salt, as it were, on the Archbishop鈥檚 tail, he might convert the whole Church of England to free thought by a coup de main. There must be an amount of cogency which even an Archbishop 鈥?an Archbishop whose perceptions had never been quickened by imprisonment for assault 鈥?would not be able to withstand. When brought face to face with the facts, as he, Ernest, could arrange them, his Grace would have no resource but to admit them; being an honourable man he would at once resign his Archbishopric, and Christianity would become extinct in England within a few months鈥?time. This, at any rate, was how things ought to be. But all the time Ernest had no confidence in the Archbishop鈥檚 not hopping off just as the pinch was about to fall on him, and this seemed so unfair that his blood boiled at the thought of it. If this was to be so, he must try if he could not fix him by the judicious use of bird-lime or a snare, or throw the salt on his tail from an ambuscade.
