Why, ma'am, I made ten thousand pounds by selling the beastliest lemonade you ever tasted for gold-dust at the mines.
I shall be stiff with gold-dust and diamonds; a doll marrying a doll's bed-gown.
A large thumb to take a large pinch of the gold-dust meant a good many extra dollars to the storekeeper in '48 and '49.
This attempt at defence and escape was really for the sake of the gold-dust he had in his pocket.
A dozen fresh eggs cost ten dollars, and a box of sardines half an ounce of gold-dust, which was eight dollars.
We'll take all this fellow's gold-dust, and he can't help himself.
Then we separated, some to get out the gold-dust, others to seize the saynoreetas.
The locker lids are forced, and the boxes of gold-dust dragged out.
He'll be gettin' fat and strong on the juicy grass, whilst you're a-heavin' out the gold-dust.
And even now the sands of Pactolus glitter with grains of gold-dust.
