water to drink. That little piece is our last candle!"
Becky gave loose to tears and wailings. Tom did
what he could to comfort her, but with little effect.
At length Becky said:
"They'll miss us and hunt for us!"
"Yes, they will! Certainly they will!"
"Maybe they're hunting for us now, Tom."
"Why, I reckon maybe they are. I hope they are."
"When would they miss us, Tom?"

|The second excerpt represents the present or the deciding factor of the moment, and is drawn from The Koran:
subjects the sun and the moon, each of them runs on to an appointed
goal; that is God, your Lord! His is the kingdom; but those ye call on
beside Him possess not a straw.
If you call upon them they cannot hear your call, and if they hear
they cannot answer you; and on the resurrection day they will deny
your associating them with God; but none can inform thee like the
One who is aware.
O ye folk! ye are in need of God; but God, He is independent,
If He please He will take you off, and will bring a fresh
creation; for that is no hard matter unto God.

"Immoral!" exclaimed Eleanor with frank disgust.
"You admit it?"
"To my shame, I do."
"Why do women wear extreme clothes? Why do you and I wear open-work silk
stockings, skirts to our knees, gowns without sleeves or bodices?"
"We're slaves to fashion," replied Eleanor, "That's the popular excuse."
"Bah!" exclaimed Carley.
Eleanor laughed in spite of being half nettled. "Are you going to stop
wearing what all the other women wear--and be looked at askance? Are you
going to be dowdy and frumpy and old-fashioned?"
