Seite 113 - If they can reach and destroy him before he catches, the danger is over and with one and the same rush they will carry it right away to the school-house goal.

Seite 115 - ... with four or five picked players who are to keep the ball away to the sides, where a try at goal, if obtained, will be less dangerous than in front. He himself, and Warner and Hedge, who have saved themselves till now, will lead the charges. " Are you ready ? "
Seite 228 - ... what were they all thinking of him? He was ashamed to go on kneeling, ashamed to rise from his knees. At last, as it were from his inmost heart, a still small voice seemed to breathe forth the words of the publican,1 " God be merciful to me a sinner...
