Finally a little woman went by carrying two water jugs.
"Good woman, will you allow me to have a drink from one of your jugs?" asked Pinocchio, who was burning up with thirst.
"With pleasure, my boy!" she answered, setting the two jugs on the ground before him.
"Now come and get another jug," he said, as he put her down.
They went together hand in hand to the village, and bought the new jug, and had it filled at the beer-shop.
The jug of maple sirup which the easy ways of village life had permitted Hillbrook's foremost citizen to carry home from the store was not there.
"My dear, do you suppose a man does not know when he is carrying a jug? I bought that sirup at Deemer's as I was passing.
"It's what I told you 'ud come, over and over again; and there's your month's wage gone, and more, to pay for that jug as I've had i' the house this ten year, and nothing ever happened to't before; but the crockery you've broke sin' here in th' house you've been 'ud make a parson swear--God forgi' me for saying so--an' if it had been boiling wort out o' the copper, it 'ud ha' been the same, and you'd ha' been scalded and very like lamed for life, as there's no knowing but what you will be some day if you go on; for anybody 'ud think you'd got the St.
And here must I take the brown-and-white jug, as it's niver been used three times this year, and go down i' the cellar myself, and belike catch my death, and be laid up wi' inflammation...."
Dantes told him that the jug had fallen from his hands while he was drinking, and the jailer went grumblingly to fetch another, without giving himself the trouble to remove the fragments of the broken one.
The fragments of the jug broke, and after an hour of useless toil, he paused.
Lady Lydiard, in the act of pouring out a second glassful of beer, suddenly set down the jug
Smangle dispensed in two little cracked mugs; considerately remarking, with reference to himself, that a gentleman must not be particular under such circumstances, and that, for his part, he was not too proud to drink out of the jug
. In which, to show his sincerity, he forthwith pledged the company in a draught which half emptied it.
"Oh, do come out of that jug
, and tell me, do you know where they put my shadow?"
All round the room big barrels stood against the walls, fastened at the bottom so they wouldn't tumble with the rolling of the ship; and above the barrels, pewter jugs
of all sizes hung from wooden pegs.
