He was as brutal as he was sycophantic, and as merciless as he was incom- petent for his masters' service, which, through stupidity and blundering, he neglected, and possibly might have earned for himself a larger money reward if he had possessed the proper abilities, but of this his despotic employers were ignorant. Bierce's most famous work of satire is probably The Devil's Dictionary (1906), in which the definitions mock cant, hypocrisy and received wisdom.

Con Bacagh had been again invited to Dublin Castle where he re- mained until his death in 1559. The mare with the fourteen of the Fian on her back went into the sea, too. I realize that this is Darth Vader and Son, and perhaps Brown intends to follow this up with Darth Vader and Daughter, but it would have been even harder on Vader to raise twins than to just have Luke underfoot. He then walked down to the jetty where Wilson was working, and catching his eye, gave him a prearranged signal which meant, " We start to-morrow morning."

James), but I like best the tales he produced in postwar years. ● A surprisingly underrated writer, witty and clever in the the way people like English mystery writers to be (why has no one reprinted him?). ● Another mostly forgotten farceur of detection. ● After a decent apprentice genre effort, this fine writer produced two fine detective novels, interestingly set in Africa, with an excellent series detective. ● So exuberantly imaginative, he is hard to contain within the banks of true detection, but these are close enough, I think, and I prefer them to his earlier, better-known works. ● A neglected mainstay of the Detection Club, hardly read today. ● These are fairly well-known attempts at more literate detective fiction, by an accomplished serious novelist. ● A writer who often stepped into thriller territory (and produced some classics of that form), he produced with these two books closer efforts at true detection (indeed, the latter is a pure puzzle) ● Clever efforts by an underappreciated author.

Desmond got his trap ready by half-past seven; the arrangement was that he should drive from Freemantle by a side street, which, after a few turns, took him on to the Rock- ingham road. At that point the judge chastised the witness, saying, "The court knows you to be much older than sixty." And it is careless, and that is always pretty. Your people have been shot down and bayoneted as it pleased your alien rulers; but then— they were mere Irish that were slain.

Unlike the others, Alexander Pope devotes himself almost exclusively to poetry, becoming a master in the use of rhymed heroic couplets for the purposes of wit. The enemy had trampled on his own constitution and torn into shreds the last strip of mock legality under which Ireland was supposed to be governed. The English general, Grant, had ex- amined the situation and did not believe that it was possible to cross the river. General John Armstrong had charge of the Pennsylvania Militia, and General William Maxwell that of New Jersey at those battles and acquitted themselves in the most creditable manner.

Dramatic irony derives, again, from classical Greek literature, and this time again from the theatre. I find likewise that the writers of those bundles are not agreed among themselves; for some of them will not allow me to be the author of my own travels; and others make me author of books to which I am wholly a stranger. Not one Invincible, not even the humblest, would for all the gold in the Bank of England stand beside the brutal assassin journal that was trying to defame their bleeding country, although they looked with equal loathing and scorn on the cruel policy of falsehood and slander pursued by the once respected Parnellites.

"I second that motion," cried Lyon, in his usual full deter- mined tone and Irish accent. "I go for Mr.

And yet would slander the memories of the purest patriots that ever died 'neath God's glorious sunlight for the redemption of their nation from foreign slavery! Terror of capture in- duced another to attempt escape, but he met with the same fate. It was decided that he should be attacked on Stephen's Green with his armed escort of seven men.

Colonel Kelly sent word for Captain Kirwan and Daniel Byrne the warder to come to his house. This will allow true Budweiser (as manufactured for the last 1000 years in Pilsen, Czech Republic) to be sold without risk of confusion. 11.
