In all, during World War II, about 150,000 women served in the WAC, nearly 90,000 in the WAVES, about 25,000 in Marine reserves and Coast Guard SPARS, and 75,000 as officer-nurses. Edward observed, with some surprise, that even Fergus, notwithstanding his knowledge and education, seemed to fall in with the superstitious ideas of his countrymen, either because he deemed it impolitic to affect scepticism on a matter of general belief, or more probably because, like most men who do not think deeply or accurately on such subjects, he had in his mind a reserve of superstition which balanced the freedom of his expressions and practice upon other occasions.

Groucho Marx, Master Detective and its sequels by Robert Goulart, which portrays Grouch as an Amateur Sleuth in 1930s Hollywood. Ev'n both at Preston and Falkirk, That fatal night ere it grew mirk, Piercing the wounded with their durk, Caused many cry! The success of Scott’s Waverley novels is a crucial factor in the outpouring of Victorian historical fiction, as authors such as Dickens, Yonge, and Eliot. The volumes, therefore, to which the present pages form a Preface, are entirely the composition of the Author by whom they are now acknowledged, with the exception, always, of avowed quotations, and such unpremeditated and involuntary plagiarisms as can scarce be guarded against by any one who has read and written a great deal.

He didn’t turn up in Central America seeking fame and fortune, and he wasn’t attracted by the wars that continually broke out along the isthmus. His own patriarchal power he strengthened at every expense which his fortune would permit, and indeed stretched his means to the uttermost, to maintain the rude and plentiful hospitality, which was the most valued attribute of a chieftain. Narrated by fourteen-year-old Johnny, whose father died "for the honor of the South," it describes his foolish decision to join a wagon train taking food to the rebels, partly to earn money for his needy family, partly in revenge for his father and partly because of the sheer excitement of participating in the war.

Hollywood made him a blacksmith; Arab chronicles said he was "like a king." Cruickshanks assured him that Cairnvreckan, a village which they were about to enter, was happy in an excellent blacksmith; ``but as he was a professor he would drive a nail for no man on the Sabbath or kirk fast, unless it were in a case of absolute necessity, for which he always charged sixpence each shoe.'' The most important part of this communication, in the opinion of the speaker, made a very slight impression on the hearer, who only internally wondered what college this veterinary professor belonged to; not aware that the word was used to denote any person who pretended to uncommon sanctity of faith and manner. had not permitted him to disturb the reveries of our hero.
