n. An animal which strews its path with fainting women. As in Rome Christians were thrown to the lions so centuries earlier in Otumwee the most ancient and famous city of the world female heretics were thrown to the mice. Jakak-Zotp the historian the only Otumwump whose writings have descended to us says that these martyrs met their death with little dignity and much exertion. He even attempts to exculpate the mice (such is the malice of bigotry) by declaring that the unfortunate women perished some from exhaustion some of broken necks from falling over their own feet and some from lack of restoratives. The mice he avers enjoyed the pleasures of the chase with composure. But if 'Roman history is nine-tenths lying we can hardly expect a smaller proportion of that rhetorical figure in the annals of a people capable of so incredible cruelty to lovely women; for a hard heart has a false tongue.
