silent, but he believed in speaking

In her last novel, "The Dream au*t

note, used thc expression "side whisk
era." The redundant "side" Is to b*
found also In Meredith, .Dlckent, the
greater Rlebardixm. Bronte, Cnlne,
Corelll, Stone and Shorter. Aa a matter
of fact, unless otherwise stated, the
leaat Intelligent reader would take It
for grunted that tbe whisker* were
worn on the side of the face, as Indeed
la the usual prnetlee. The terms "Ho
wblaker" (mustache) and "chin whisker" (bonrdette) are Americanisms.���
