EUGENE ARAM." (Horror and remorse. Aspirated pectoral and guttural quality.)
And, lo! the universal air
Seemed lit with ghastly flame;-
Were looking down in blame:
And called upon his name!
Such sense within the slain !
The blood gushed out amain!
Was scorching in my brain !
From the heaven's topmost height,
Of the blood-avenging sprite :
6. MACBETH. (Horror and fear. Intense suppressed force; prevailing monotone ; very slow movement; strong aspirated quality.]
Now o'er the one hālf world Nāture seems dead; and wicked dreams abūse The cūrtained sleep; now wītchcraft celebrates Pale Hēcate's offerings; and wīthered murder, Alārumed by his sēntinel, the wolf, Whose howl's his watch, thūs with his stēalthy pāce, Towards his design Moves like a ghost.—Thou sūre and fīrm-sēt ēarth! Hēar not my stēps, which wāy thēy wālk; för fēar The very stones prāte of my whereabout, And tāke the prēsent hörror from the time Which now sūits with it.

And one by one, through a hole in the wall,
And there they hid;
And Reuben slid
"Keep dark !” said he,
“Hush !” Reuben said,
“He's up in the shed !
An' nobody near;—.
To the ground with a thump, Flutterin' and flounderin' all in a lump.”

IV. GUTTURAL QUALITY. The guttural, or throat, quality is the harsh, grating, rasping utterance to which the voice tends in the expression of hatred, contempt, revenge, and loathing. It is often combined with aspirated quality in the expression of extreme impatience or disgust, intense rage, and extreme contempt.

Signior Antonio, mdny a time and oft,

V. THE FALSETTO. The falsetto is the thin, sharp, high-pitched tone produced when the voice breaks, or gets above its natural compass. It is used by men when they imitate the voices of women and children. It is the tone suitable for the expression of old age, sickness, feebleness, pain, and helpless terror 1. “My child! my child !” with sobs and tears,
She shrieked upon his callous ears. 2. “Billy—where are you, Billy, I say ? Come, Billy, come home to your best of mothers !”

Oh! oh! Orator Puff,
One voice for an orator's surely enough! “Oh! save!” he exclaimed, in his he-and-she tones, “Help me out! help me out! I have broken
bones!” “ Help you out !” said a stranger, who passed, “what
a bother! Why, there's two of you there; can't you help one
Oh! oh! Orator Puff,
