Side 176 - ... which he thought to be fitting for a headmaster. His red shaggy eyebrows were so prominent, that he habitually used them as arms and hands for the purpose of pointing out any object towards which he wished to direct attention ; the rest of his features were equally striking in their way, and were all and all his own ; he wore a fancy-dress partly resembling the costume of Napoleon, and partly that of a widow-woman.
