Definition of Misbehaving:
When she met the family at the breakfast- table Grandma Rose seemed to regard her with cold displeasure; " Mamma Vi" spoke gently and kindly; hoping she felt no injury from last night's exposure, but looked wretchedly ill; and in answer to her mother's inquiries admitted that she had been kept awake most of the night by a violent headache, to which Rosie added, in an indignant tone, and with an angry glance at Lulu: " Brought on by anxiety in regard to a certain young miss who is always misbehaving and causing a world of trouble to her best friends."- "Elsie at Nantucket", Martha Finley.

The current of the river was so swift that it was useless to try and paddle up against it, while keeping in the middle of the stream, the banks were so thick and wooded that tracking was impossible, and " milking the brush" required incredible labor, because it meant keeping the canoe so near the bank that it was grounding or striking snags or becoming entangled in roots constantly, or misbehaving itself in some way.- "The Boy With the U. S. Survey", Francis Rolt-Wheeler.
