Art or nature though, the original stock of Louisa’s character or the graft of circumstances upon it, - her curious reserve did baffle, while it stimulated, one as sagacious as Mrs. Sparsit.
Однако было ли то искусство или природа, истинная сущность Луизы или воздействие внешних обстоятельств, но ее удивительная сдержанность сбивала с толку, хоть и подзадоривала даже такую проницательную особу, как миссис Спарсит.

I shall strive to baffle 'em, howsever, by heading the scow in all manner of ways, first in one quarter and then in another, until they get to be a-leg-weary, and tired of tramping a'ter us."
Я, впрочем, постараюсь надуть их и буду направлять баржу то туда, то сюда, пока они не устанут, гоняясь за нами.

The simplest design of the baffle 21 is a plate placed in the channel 4 parallel to the direction of the light beam separating the channel 4 in two sections.
В простейшем варианте перегородка 21 может быть выполнена в виде пластины, расположенной в канале 4 параллельно направлению распространения светового луча и разделяющая канал 4 на две секции.
And something more original--these fine characters can sometimes baffle one completely--just imagine. Anna Andreyevna took my breath away this morning by asking: 'Whether I were in love with Katerina Nikolaevna Ahmakov or not?'"
И что оригинальнее всего: эти превосходные характеры умеют иногда чрезвычайно своеобразно озадачивать; вообрази, Анна Андреевна вдруг огорошивает меня сегодня вопросом: "Люблю ли я Катерину Николаевну Ахмакову или нет?"

But they were properly served; their chance had past; most of them had now to shoot against the sun; and Selden, as he ran, bounded from side to side to baffle and deceive their aim.
Но они поздно спохватились, и как бы в отместку за их жестокость счастье от них отвернулось и теперь им приходилось стрелять против солнца. Сэлдэн на бегу кидался то вправо, то влево, чтобы сбить их и не дать им прицелиться.

For, even if we introduced the concept of a repulsive force, we should still be baffled by the fact that the stone begins to move at one instant rather than another.
Ибо, даже если бы мы ввели понятие отталкивающей силы, мы все же не смогли бы объяснить, почему камень начал двигаться в данный момент, а не в другой.

I am not wont to be baffled in my enterprises, nor needs a Norman noble scrupulously to vindicate his conduct to the Saxon maiden whom be distinguishes by the offer of his hand.
Я не привык к неудачам в своих предприятиях, а для норманского дворянина нет надобности оправдываться перед саксонской девицей, которой он делает честь, предлагая ей свою руку.

That, all this had been skilfully done; but that Snawley, who was well practised in the arts of low cunning and intrigue, had successfully baffled all their attempts, until an unexpected circumstance had brought him, last night, upon his knees.
Все это было проделано весьма успешно, но Снаули, искушенный в науке хитростей и интриг, противился всем их попыткам, пока неожиданное стечение обстоятельств не повергло его вчера вечером на колени.

He crossed a small "branch" two or three times, because of a prevailing juvenile superstition that to cross water baffled pursuit.
Он два или три раза перешел вброд через маленький ручей, потому что среди мальчишек распространено поверье, будто это сбивает погоню со следа.
