In such case, why should we regard Man as in any higher sense the object of Divine care than a pig? Still stronger does the case appear when we remember that ...

A fox now trapped in those horrible teeth remains imprisoned generally till he perishes of cold, exhaustion, or fear.

It would be interesting to know whether the two bayonets British and German—are exactly similar. Another account of the German weapon states that the saw-edge ...
