    Idle found himself confined to his bed for many weeks together, wasted and worn by a long illness, of which his own disastrous muscular exertion had been the sole first cause. Stimulated to preternatural activity of body and sharpness of eye by the instinct of self-preservation, Mr. They departed from the Station in a violent hurry for which, it is unnecessary to observe, there was not the least occasionand were delivered at the fine old house at Lancaster, on the same night. Aa' the world ganged awa' yon. I had never gone the length of hiring a man-servant to wait on myself; but I went to the expense of hiring one to wait upon him.

    The unnatural activity of body which was necessarily called forth for the accomplishment of this result threw Thomas Idle, for the first time in his life, into a perspiration. Idle's horror and amazement, when he saw this young man--on ordinary occasions, the meekest and mildest of human beings-- suddenly contract his eye-brows, compress his lips, a. Goodchild sits down by the cairn as if it was his study-table at home; Idle, drenched and panting, stands up with his back to the wind, ascertains distinctly that this is the top at last, looks round with all the little curiosity that is left in him, and gets, in return, a magnificent view of - Nothing! The misguided young men who thus shirked their duty to the mistress from whom they had received many favours, were actuated by the low idea of making a perfectly idle trip, in any direction. Goodchild, with a lover's sigh, a. Never once, through the whole innings did he and the ball come together on anything approaching to intimate terms.

    While Thomas was lazy, he was a model of health. They put his oaths of allegiance, and his dreadful official denunciations of the Pope and the Pretender, so gently into his mouth, that he hardly knew how the words got there. And now, the human locomotives, creased as to their countenances and purblind as to their eyes, would swarm forth in a heap, addressing themselves to the mysterious urns and the much-injured women; while the iron locomotives, dripping fire and water, shed their steam about plentifully, making the dull oxen in their cages, with heads depressed, and foam hanging from their mouths as their red looks glanced fearfully at the surrounding terrors, seem as though they had been drinking at half-frozen waters and were hung with icicles. Goodchild, with a lover's sigh, a.

The Angel, which has been cleared for action all the week, already begins restoring every neat and comfortable article of furniture to its own neat and comfortable place. Between Francis and Thomas, however, there was this difference of character: Goodchild was laboriously idle, and would take upon himself any amount of pains and labour to assure himself that he was idle; in short, had no better idea of idleness than that it was useless industry.

Well-cultivated gardens attached to the cottages, with plenty of produce forced out of their hard soil. He professes to have other virtues, such as hardiness and strength, which you may discover on trial; but the one thing which he insists on your believing, when you get on his back, is that he may be safely depended on not to tumble down with you.

I see the answer in your face: it is the quality of being Sure-Footed. This was Mr. The market looks unusually natural, comfortable, and wholesome; the market-people too. No visitors came there at all. The only time he played cricket he caught a fever from the unaccustomed perspiration.

A library? With 'Doctor Mantle's Dispensary for the cure of all Human Maladies and no charge for advice,' and with Doctor Mantle's 'Laboratory of Medical, Chemical, and Botanical Science' — both healing institutions established on one pair of trestles, one board, and one sun-blind.

Page last updated on April By day, in its unconscious state, it looked as if no life could come to it,--as if it were all rust, dust, and ashes--as if the last train for ever, had gone without issuing any Return-Tickets--as if the last Engine had uttered its last shriek and burst.

The Innkeeper was not idle enough — was not idle at all, which was a great fault in him — but was a fine specimen of a north- country man, or any kind of man. No words can describe Mr. Now, prone in the mud, and now backing himself up against shop-windows, the owners of which come out in terror to remove him; now, in the drinking-shop, and now in the tobacconist's, where he goes to buy tobacco, and makes his way into the parlour, and where he gets a cigar, which in half-a-minute he forgets to smoke; now dancing, now dozing, now cursing, and now complimenting My Lord, the Colonel, the Noble Captain, and Your Honourable Worship, the Gong-donkey kicks up his heels, occasionally braying, until suddenly, he beholds the dearest friend he has in the world coming down the street.

Goodchild immediately referred to the county-map, and ardently discovered that the most delicious piece of sea-coast to be found within the limits of England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, the Isle of Man, and the Channel Islands, all summed up together, was Allonby on the coast of Cumberland.

The compass is broken, and the exploring party is lost! It was the fifth from London, so far had they penetrated into the North. With women trying on clogs and caps at open stalls, and 'Bible stalls' adjoining.

I have, in my early time, been taken out of it by one Beadle; but, to be taken into it by three, O Thomas, is a distinction I shall never enjoy!

Goodchild with enthusiasm; there was a fine Scottish mountain on that Scottish coast; there were Scottish lights to be seen shining across the glorious Channel, and at Allonby itself there was every idle luxury no doubt that a watering-place could offer to the heart of idle man.

Down Train! But, its contrasts were very violent, and there was also an infection in it.The Lazy Tour of Two Idle Apprentices showcases both long-cherished and entirely novel sides of these well-loved men of letters.
