These startling announcements filled the blacks with a combination of terror and rage; but, seeing no foe in evidence they were enabled to permit their rage to get the better of their terror, and so the leaders, pushed on by those behind them, ran rapidly around the hut in the direction of the yapping
of the mangy cur.
How long afterward he did not know, he was awakened by the yapping
bark of a young coyote.
Silence reigned, and his voice was heard, like the yapping
of a dog, calling Monsieur Luigi da Porta and Mademoiselle Ginevra di Piombo.
A mangy little Jackal, who had been yapping
hungrily on a low bluff, cocked up his ears and tail, and scuttered across the shallows to join the Adjutant.
"Yes, that's what every yapping
cur is, when you hold a stick up at him," said the farrier.
