Sample text

Mind that loose slate—Oh, it’s coming down ! Heads below ! —Nay, I sha’n’t ! —Bill’s got to go down—Here, Bill ! The master says you’ve got to go down the chimney ! ” “ Oh ! So Bill’s got to come down the chimney, has he ? ” said Alice to herself. “Why, they seem to put everything upon Bill ! I wouldn’t be in Bill’s place for a good deal : this fireplace is narrow, to be sure ; but I think I can kick a little ! ” She drew her foot as far down the chimney as she could, and waited till she heard a little animal (she couldn’t guess of what sort it was) scratching and scrambling about in the chimney close above her : then, saying to herself “ This is Bill”, she gave one sharp kick, and waited to see what would happen next.

Alice did not at all like the tone of this remark, and thought it would be as well to introduce some other subject of conversation. While she was trying to fix on one, the cook took the cauldron of soup off the fire, and at once set to work throwing everything within her reach at the Duchess and the baby—the fire-irons came first ; then followed a shower of sauce-pans, plates, and dishes. The Duchess took no notice of them even when they hit her ; and the baby was howling so much already, that it was quite impossible to say whether the blows hurt it or not.

While the Duchess sang the second verse of the song, she kept tossing the baby violently up and down, and the poor little thing howled so, that Alice could hardly hear the words :— “ I speak severely to my boy, I beat him when he sneezes ; For he can thoroughly enjoy The pepper when he pleases ! ” C HORU S “Wow ! wow ! wow ! ” — 53 — “ Here ! You may nurse it a bit, if you like ! ” the Duchess said to Alice, flinging the baby at her as she spoke. “ I must go and get ready to play croquet with the Queen,” and she hurried out of the room.
