With measured steps he went up to the stove, flung down his load, straightened himself, took out of his tail-pocket a snuff- box, and with round eyes began helping himself to a pinch of dry trefoil mixed with ashes.
Мерными шагами дошел он до печки, сбросил свою ношу, приподнялся, достал из заднего кармана табакерку, вытаращил глаза и начал набивать себе в нос тертый донник, смешанный с золой.

For a while she could be heard scolding at everything, flinging dresses and other things about, and pulling the ears of her favourite cat. Then the door opened again, and puss, mewing pitifully, was flung forth by the tail.
За перегородкой долго еще слышалось, как, продолжая бранить все и всех и проклинать свое житье, она швыряла свои вещи и драла за уши свою любимую кошку; наконец дверь приотворилась, и в нее вылетела брошенная за хвост, жалобно мяукавшая кошка.

It is not proper to run up inclined ways at the tail of a string, more especially when you cannot see two yards in front of you and all earth below is a swirling cauldron of mist.
Не слишком приятно, когда тебя тащат круто вверх на хвосте бечевки, особенно если не видно, что творится впереди, далее двух ярдов, а внизу, словно в котле, клубится туман.
