Excerpt
Excerpt: Etymology (SUPPLIED BY A LATE CONSUMPTIVE USHER TO A GRAMMAR SCHOOL.); The pale Usher --threadbare in coat, heart, body, and brain; I see him now. He was ever dusting his old lexicons and grammars, with a queer handkerchief, mockingly embellished with all the gay flags of all the known nations of the world. He loved to dust his old grammars; it somehow mildly reminded him of his mortality.
