I remember now a certain air with which she had laid the paper on my table, and a certain sniff, between sympathy and defiance, with which she had announced it: `There`s your MERCURY for ye!`

Perhaps the same force moved him which collected the birds into exploring parties and made the animals nervously sniff upwind for the scent of winter.
Быть может, над Ним властвовала та же сила, которая сбивала птиц в стаи, гнала их в неведомую даль, а животных заставляла нервно ловить ноздрями ветер — не несет ли он запах зимы.
