Usage examples of "masin".

In the first place, Masin came from some outlandish part of Italy where an abominable dialect was spoken, and though he could speak school Italian when he pleased, he chose to talk to the porter in his native jargon, when he talked at all.

On the other hand, though Masin would not drink, he often gave the porter a cigar, with a friendly smile.

The sentence had been passed upon him for having stabbed a man in the back, in a drunken brawl, but Masin had steadily denied the charge, and the evidence against him had been merely circumstantial.

It had happened in Rome, where Masin had worked as a mason during the construction of the new Courts of Justice.

Later, Masin had helped Malipieri to escape, had followed him into exile, and had been of the greatest use to him during the excavations in Carthage, where he had acted as body- servant, foreman, and often as a trusted friend.

To Masin it was easy enough, and was merely a question of time and patience.

Malipieri held the iron horizontally against the stone with both hands, turning it a little after Masin had struck it with the sledge.

At regular intervals the men changed places, Masin held the drill and Malipieri took the hammer.

He made Masin buy half-a- dozen coarse sponges and tied one upon the upper end of each projecting plug.

It did not even occur to Malipieri that Masin could have betrayed him, yet so far as it was possible to judge, Masin was the only living man who had looked into the underground chamber.

Masin had put a patent padlock, and even Masin had not the key to that.

When they had passed the outer door at the head of the winding staircase, Malipieri told Masin to lock it after them.

When they had first come to this place Masin had succeeded in poking in a long stick with a bit of lighted wax taper fastened to it, and both men had seen that the channel ran on as far as it could be seen, with no widening.

Malipieri and Masin had widened the slit to a convenient passage, but as soon as it had been possible to squeeze through, the architect had gone in.

That was all, but neither he nor Masin carried wax matches in the vaults, because the dampness soon made them useless.
