She noticed that before they went to bed the giant put straw ropes round her neck and her sisters', and round his own lassies' necks, he put gold chains. So Molly took care and did not fall asleep, but waited till she was sure every one was sleeping sound. Then she slipped out of the bed, and took the straw ropes off her own and her sisters' necks, and took the gold chains off the giant's lassies. She then put the straw ropes on the giant's lassies and the gold on herself and her sisters, and lay down. * Smart, intelligent, or witty; mentally quick or sharp. * 1860, John Timbs, _School-Days of Eminent Men_, page 177, Lord Macaulay has said of Bunyan: “though there were many CLEVER men in England during the latter half of the seventeenth century, there were only two great creative minds.
