This penalty is a fine of not less than one thousand nor more than two thousand dollars, and imprisonment in the public jail for a period of not less than six months nor more than one year.鈥擵ide Acts of Louisiana, 1 Session, 9th Legislature, 1828-9, No. 24, Section 16. (Rev. Stat. 1852, p. 550, § 143.) 鈥淣ever,鈥?echoed Martin. 朋友的姐姐线观高清2 Ernest鈥檚 position in this respect was much what it had been at school except that things were on a larger scale. His tutor鈥檚 and cook鈥檚 bills were paid for him; his father sent him his wine; over and above this he had L50 a year with which to keep himself in clothes and all other expenses; this was about the usual thing at Emmanuel in Ernest鈥檚 day, though many had much less than this. Ernest did as he had done at school 鈥?he spent what he could, soon after he received his money; he then incurred a few modest liabilities, and then lived penuriously till next term, when he would immediately pay his debts, and start new ones to much the same extent as those which he had just got rid of. When he came into his L5000 and became independent of his father, L15 or L20 served to cover the whole of his unauthorised expenditure. 12 But God looked at him and at his misery, and at his being about to breathe his last. And the Word of God came from heaven, raised him out of the water, and said to him, "Go up the high bank to Eve." And when he came up to Eve he said to her, "Who told you to come here?" We left him full of this resolve, I, to write to Theobald, and also to instruct my solicitor to get Ernest鈥檚 money out of Pryer鈥檚 hands, and Towneley to see the reporters and keep the case out of the newspapers. He was successful as regards all the higher-class papers. There was only one journal, and that of the lowest class, which was incorruptible. 鈥淥f course, my dear,鈥?said Christina, and she said 鈥淕loria鈥?for ever after. Then she thought what a wonderfully clever girl Charlotte was, and how she ought to marry no one lower than a bishop. By-and-by when Theobald went away for an unusually long holiday one summer, he could find no one but a rather high-church clergyman to take his duty. This gentleman was a man of weight in the neighbourhood, having considerable private means, but without preferment. In the summer he would often help his brother clergymen, and it was through his being willing to take the duty at Battersby for a few Sundays that Theobald had been able to get away for so long. On his return, however, he found that the whole psalms were being chanted as well as the Glorias. The influential clergyman, Christina, and Charlotte took the bull by the horns as soon as Theobald returned, and laughed it all off; and the clergyman laughed and bounced, and Christina laughed and coaxed, and Charlotte uttered unexceptionable sentiments, and the thing was done now, and could not be undone, and it was no use grieving over spilt milk; so henceforth the psalms were to be chanted, but Theobald grisled over it in his heart, and he did not like it.
