about Pop's stout little side gate.
In the tabloids, and even in the
large and heavy journals, crowds
know these people were milling, the
people didn't know they were mill

had mounted a box and besought
them to mill for the sake of the
members of the press, they would
not have known how to sto about it
Dictionaries might have been pass

they would have found in them
nothing that would warrant "mill

might have "milled" in Tony, Caca

before the gate of a closed brewery.

As the gate opened the crowd

the besieged were safe.
