2、AN OWL, in her wisdom, counseled the Birds that when the acorn first began to sprout, to pull it all up out of the ground and not allow it to grow. She said acorns would produce mistletoe, from which an irremediable poison, the bird lime, would be extracted and by which they would be captured. The Owl next advised them to pluck up the seed of the flax, which men had sown, as it was a plant which boded no good to them. And, lastly, the Owl, seeing an archer approach, predicted that this man, being on foot, would contrive darts armed with feathers which would fly faster than the wings of the Birds themselves. The Birds gave no credence to these warning words, but considered the Owl to be beside herself and said that she was mad. But afterwards, finding her words were true, they wondered at her knowledge and deemed her to be the wisest of birds. Hence it is that when she appears they look to her as knowing all things, while she no longer gives them advice, but in solitude laments their past folly.WAR SECTORCaptain Jim never said a boastful word, but it was impossible to help seeing what a hero the man had been--brave, true, resourceful, unselfish. He sat there in his little room and made those things live again for his hearers. By a lift of the eyebrow, a twist of the lip, a gesture, a word, he painted a whole scene or character so that they saw it as it was.

4、"Stoutness and slimness seem to be matters of predestination," said Anne. "At all events, Mrs. Harmon Andrews can't say to you what she said to me when I came home from Summerside, `Well, Anne, you're just about as skinny as ever.' It sounds quite romantic to be `slender,' but `skinny' has a very different tang."
1、French developer Ankama unleashed its stylish MMORPG Dofus on the world a decade ago. Shrinking the action down to pocket size, it brought the same quirky world to the mobile platform in 2016 with Dofus Touch. The aim of the game is unchanged. You must search the World of Twelve for the Dofus – coveted dragon eggs with mystical power.The game allows you to select from 15 varied character classes, each customisable, ranging from a bloodthirsty warrior to a creature summoner. Using movement and action points, battles are turn-based – a mechanic that’ll be familiar to you if you’re a fan of classic RPGs. The graphics are vibrant and anime-inspired, set on a 2D isometric map, with fun, detailed environments. Dofus Touch doesn’t take itself too seriously either, with light-hearted dialogue and a sense of humour.As with many MMORPGs, there are plenty of activities to keep your character occupied. Hunt for treasure, clear dungeons, fight PVP, trade equipment, complete quests and so on. Add to that the regular server-wide events, and there’s not much chance you’ll be sat twiddling your thumbs anytime soon.One of those aforementioned events is taking place this week, 16-23 January, so get your greaves on if you want to join in. The chief of the Bworks, an Orc-like race, is leading his tribe in an invasion north of Cania. King Allister is none too pleased, and wants you to put an end to the fray – by joining it! During Troolateral Damage, the embattled land is split into three tiers, based on player level. Players have to retrieve the quest item and give it to Miss Engere, adding to the pile for that server.Servers must collect a certain number of the quest items for all players to receive the biggest reward of +50% XP and a drop bonus weekend. But just getting involved promises a +25% XP and a drop bonus day, so it’s worth a shot.If you fancy joining the quest, you can download Dofus Touch from Google Play or the App Store.
