' So on they went galloping, the general for ever putting his head out of the window and urging the post-boys on. They had news of the fugitives wherever they stopped, and, to the general's intense delight, the distance between pursuers and pursued was lessening at every stage.
THE ELOPEMENT OF MISS HERIOT 77 An hour was gained ! two hours ! Fin- ally the half- frantic father learned that his daughter and her lover were not an hour ahead. Clearly they did not dream of such a hot pursuit, or per
...haps the girl's shaken nerves couldn't stand the great pace.
At the last stage before Carlisle the general learned that the objects of his chase were but half an hour ahead.
' Five guineas apiece, my lads, if you overtake 'em before Carlisle ! Ride like blazes ! ' With outstretched necks the four horses seemed to fly over the road. The plough- man stopped his plough to turn and watch the thundering chariot ; the waggoner drew aside in haste and stood petrified as it whirled by ; gigs, carts, phaetons swerved into the ditch to let the furious Jehus pass ; market-women let their baskets fall and fled screaming to the hedge ; mothers ran shriek- ing out of the houses after their children playing in the road ; dogs rushed out and barked themselves hoarse with frenzy ; squealing pigs dashed helter-skelter in 78 ROMANCES OF THE ROAD headlong panic ; scattered poultry flew cackling and screeching up roofs, into windows and doorways ; all along the road- side necks were stretched to stare after the madly-hurrying chaise and the fierce, white- haired old gentleman leaning out of the window, and with shouts and gesticulations urging the post-boys on in their wild career.
