Tale of Pony Twinkleheels –by: Arthur Scott Bailey

"When Johnnie Green sent him along the road at a trot, Twinkleheels' tiny feet moved so fast that you could scarcely have told one from another. Being a pony, and only half as big as a horse, he had to move his legs twice as quickly as a horse did in order to travel at a horse's speed. Twinkleheels' friends knew that he didn't care to be beaten by any horse, no matter how long-legged. "It's spirit, not size, that counts," Farmer Green often remarked as he watched Twinkleheels tripping out of the yard, sometimes with Johnnie on his back, sometimes drawing Johnnie in a little, red-wheeled buggy....

The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax

By

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

"But why Turkish?" asked Mr. Sherlock Holmes, gazing fixedly at my boots. I was reclining in a cane backed chair at the moment, and my protruded feet had attracted his ever active attention.

"English," I answered in some surprise. "I got them at Latimer's, in Oxford Street."

Holmes smiled with an expression of weary patience.

"The bath!" he said; "the bath! Why the relaxing and expensive Turkish rather than the invigorating home made article?"

LIETTE

Liette se asomó al balcón y paseó su mirada un poco turbada por los sitios en que iba a desarrollarse su vida. A sus pies la plazuela rectangular plantada de tilos, a cuya sombra iban a hacer su partida los jugadores de pelota, entre los bancos de piedra desgastados por el uso de tantas generaciones, a los que el abuelo tembloroso iba a calentar su reuma pensando en el tiempo lejano en que iba allí a jugar al marro...
