    The news spread, and the whole city was in Sir Gibbie book about his fate. Janet hastened to the door, but already Gibbie's nimble feet refreshed to the point of every toe with the food he had just swallowed, had borne him far up the hill, behind the cottage, so that she could not get a glimpse of him. It was all, even then, that the wife could do to make both ends meet; nor would her relations, whom she had grievously offended by her marriage, afford her the smallest assistance. But he always made the right return.

    Great as was Sir Gibbie book delight in freedom, a delight he revelled in from morning to night, and sometimes from night to morning, he had never had a notion of it that reached beyond the city, he never longed for larger space, for wider outlook. Sclater set himself to discover and verify the facts. But he grows to become a Christ-figure, a knight-errant, a wrong-righter. Besides, being nice in his mind, he was naturally nice in his body. Sclater had reached Mistress Croale's ear before ever she had seen the minister himself. The boy started and turned, but instead of moving out of the way, began searching in some mysterious receptacle hid in the recesses of his rags.

    Her laughter ended, the girl was troubled: she would be scolded for Sir Gibbie book clumsiness in allowing Hawkie to kick over the pail, but the eagerness of the boy after the milk troubled her more. Never in his life had he yet pitied himself. He saw not a little of what was good and noble, and would fain be such, but mainly that men might regard him for his goodness and nobility; hence his practical notion of the good was weak, and of the noble, paltry. Sclater's prayers, either in congregational or family devotion, I am at some loss to imagine. The day went on, and went out, its short autumnal brightness quenched in a chilly fog.

But in that too he was sadly unsuccessful: what with the darkness and the weight of him, the result of the boy's best endeavour was, that Sir George half slipped, half rolled down upon the box, and from that to the floor.

Nor had he any clear idea that the cattle themselves were kept for any other object than to Sir Gibbie book them comfortable and happy. After she had read a while, there Sir Gibbie book a change, and the lamb seemed the Lord himself, both lamb and shepherd, who had come to claim her hospitality.

Never ae word has the cratur spoken! It's no 'at we're drunkards, Lord -- ow Sir Gibbie book It's the naitral w'y o' 't, ye see, to rin doon, an' it's no mainner o' use gangin' again natur.

A look of anxiety once appeared, but the same moment it vanished, and he held out in his hand the little drop of amethystine splendour. This cursit drink's been the ruin o' a' the Galbraiths as far back as I ken. Her face was composed, almost to sadness, and throughout the evening, during which she waited in person upon her customers, she comported herself with such dignity, that her slow step and stately carriage seemed rather to belong to the assistant at some religious ceremony than to one who ministered at the orgies of a few drunken tradespeople.

The next he was down, raking in the gutter again. But if the heart was not a careless one, the eye would look again and discover a stronger stillness than mere placidity -- a sort of live peace abiding in that weather-beaten little face under its wild crown of human herbage. Every here and there, a brown rivulet from some peat-bog on a hill -- brown and clear, like smoke-crystals molten together, flowed into it, and when he had lost it, guided him back to his guide.

Society scouts the drunkard because he is loathsome, and it matters nothing whether society be right or wrong, while it cherishes in its very bosom vices which are, to the God-born thing we call the soul, yet worse poisons.

For, amongst not a few others, there was this strange remnant of righteousness in the man, that he never would taste drink before it was dark in winter, or in summer before the regular hour for ceasing work had arrived; and to this rule he kept, and that under far greater difficulties, on the Sunday as well.

At heart he was a poet -- weak enough, but capable of endless delight. He had at the same time a very low opinion of himself and his deservings, and justly, for his consciousness had dwindled into little more than a live thirst.

The latter half of his name they laid aside for him, as parents do a dangerous or over-valuable gift to a child.

Then another sheaf was unbound and cast on the floor, and the blows of the flails Sir Gibbie book again. Everybody, down to the dogs, had Sir Gibbie book doing for him, and what was to become of him!

Many couples who love each other more, quarrel more, and with less politeness. Let us try to understand George Galbraith. And he only who obeys him, does or can know him; he who obeys him cannot fail to know him. Tak ye heed o' beirin' fause witness, sir.

They propped it here, they propped it there; with wonderful judgment and skill and graduation of force they applied themselves, and with perfect success. It had been pleasant down in the valley, with the cattle and Donal, and foul weather sometimes; but now it was the full glow of summer; the sweet keen air of the mountain bathed him as he ran, entered into him, filled him with life like the new wine of the kingdom of God, and the whole world rose in its glory around him.
