"What are you limping for, Bobolink?" "Oh! shucks! I see there's no use trying to hide anything from your sharp eyes, Jack Stormways. Guess I just about walked my feet off today, goin' fishin' with our patrol leader, away over to the Radway River, and about six miles up." "Have any luck, Bobolink?" instantly demanded the third member of the group of three half-grown boys, who were passing after nightfall through some of the partly deserted streets on the outskirts of the thriving town of Stanhope; and whose name it might be stated was Tom Betts.
"Watch Jack cut his name in the ice, fellows!" "I wish I could do the fancy stunts on skates he manages to pull off. It makes me green with envy to watch Jack Stormways do that trick." "Oh, shucks! what's the use of saying that, Wallace Carberry, when everybody knows your strong suit is long-distance skating? The fact is both the Carberry twins are as much at home on the ice as I am when I get my knees under the supper table." "That's kind of you to throw bouquets my way, Bobolink. But, boys, stop and think. Here it is-only four days now to Christmas, and the scouts haven't made up their minds yet where to spend the glorious holidays." "Y-y-yes, and b-b-by the same token, this year we're g-g-going to g-g-get a full three-weeks' vacation in the b-b-bargain, b-b-because they have t-t-to overhaul the f-f-furnaces."
The gold coins of the Gupta kings, who ruled over North India in the fourth and fifth centuries, are renowned for the exquisite artistic quality of their designs. Less familiar are the striking variety in iconography and style of their images and the great diversity in the technical and material properties of these coins. This study focuses on those gold coins that show the Gupta king with a banner carrying a miniature image of the mythic eagle Garuda, the supreme symbol of his power. They belong to five coin types - from a range of twenty-one different obverse designs - which together comprise about sixty percent of the dinaras struck from the reign of Samudragupta up to and including that of Skandagupta.
