The chain flew out with startling rapidity and brought the dazzler to rest.
The dazzler tacked about and began to work in toward the north shore.

Mr. Lumbey shook his head with great solemnity, as though to imply that he supposed she must have been rather a dazzler.

Joe did not know what to say, and an oppressive silence, broken only by the churn of the dazzler's forefoot, fell upon them.
Only that very morning he had been a school-boy, and now he was a sailor, shipped on the dazzler and bound he knew not whither.
