Yes, she married Manton, but I don't know about his liberality; I'm not sure but he cut her throat because he discovered that she lacked that excellent thing in woman, the middle toe
of the right foot.
She looked Mariequita up and down, from her ugly brown toes
to her pretty black eyes, and back again.
As a duck with its eyelids, so he with his nose Trims his belt and his buttons, and turns out his toes
Naturally one blushes when one can see one's naked toes
projecting through one's boots, and one's buttons hanging by a single thread
It is a smaller foot, this second trail, and the toes turn inward.
Now, I sit down under the rock, leaning upon my right hand, and resting my bow between my toes.
Faster, faster, and faster; lightly, more lightly, and yet more lightly whirled the count, flying round Marya Dmitrievna, now on his toes
, now on his heels; until, turning his partner round to her seat, he executed the final pas, raising his soft foot backwards, bowing his perspiring head, smiling and making a wide sweep with his arm, amid a thunder of applause and laughter led by Natasha.
As bad was Harley Kennan's trick of catching him gloriously asleep on an edge of Villa's skirt and of tickling the hair between his toes
and making him kick involuntarily in his sleep, until he kicked himself awake to hearing of gurgles and snickers of laughter at his expense.
Its hands were black, too, and its toes
curled down, like a bird's.
The other phase of the death-road was that of the habitual drunkards, who had a way of turning up their toes

The proportional width of the gape of mouth, the proportional length of the eyelids, of the orifice of the nostrils, of the tongue (not always in strict correlation with the length of beak), the size of the crop and of the upper part of the oesophagus; the development and abortion of the oil-gland; the number of the primary wing and caudal feathers; the relative length of wing and tail to each other and to the body; the relative length of leg and of the feet; the number of scutellae on the toes
, the development of skin between the toes
, are all points of structure which are variable.
We remained untouched by its beauties, each buried in an easy-chair toasting our toes
at the fire.
As for the rest, every bit was made by her own hands--featherstitched pinning blankets, a crocheted jacket and cap, knitted mittens, embroidered bonnets; slim little princess slips of sensible length; underskirts on absurd Lilliputian yokes; silk-embroidered white flannel petticoats; stockings and crocheted boots, seeming to burgeon before her eyes with wriggly pink toes
and plump little calves; and last, but not least, many deliciously soft squares of bird's-eye linen.
There is another pump room, into which infirm ladies and gentlemen are wheeled, in such an astonishing variety of chairs and chaises, that any adventurous individual who goes in with the regular number of toes
, is in imminent danger of coming out without them; and there is a third, into which the quiet people go, for it is less noisy than either.
The spot was at Chesea, for there Miss Sophia Wackles resided with her widowed mother and two sisters, in conjunction with whom she maintained a very small day-school for young ladies of proportionate dimensions; a circumstance which was made known to the neighbourhood by an oval board over the front first-floor windows, whereupon appeared in circumbmbient flourishes the words 'Ladies' Seminary'; and which was further published and proclaimed at intervals between the hours of half-past nine and ten in the morning, by a straggling and solitrary young lady of tender years standing on the scraper on the tips of her toes
and making futile attempts to reach the knocker with spelling-book.
