Hi friends,

The below is sentence from an old English novel:-

He was a partner of mine thirty years ago, a carding playing, gambling, drinking man. If he comes, he is not to be admitted. If he asks questions, you are not to answer. He's just a trash, a soaking dope. He had his chance, got under it, and went to sleep. He might have been rich, but he sold all his shares.

Could you please explain all in bold.

Thank you
QP

Hi friends,

I read an English novel and found this word which I don't understand:-

"Why your name is Tab?"

"It is an office nickname. The boys say that I've a passion for making my exit on a good line...really, I believe it is the line on which the curtain falls...you'll understand that, it is one of the conventions of the drama"

"A tab-line?"

Could you please help to explain the word in bold.

Thank you
QP

Hi friends,

Please help on the sentence below:-

"He cannot be killed here" he said "The illustrious knows that my hands are clean."

Illustrious is Adj., why it is used like a noun?

Is it short form of "the illustrious people"?

Thank you.

Hi friends,

Could you please help on the below sentence:-

Ware you a man or wild-mind?" he snarled "Do I kill men or ask that they should be killed?".

Does it mean "insane"?

Thank QP

Hi friends,

I read a warranty of a watch and found this sentence:-

The warranty does not cover:
Defects and damage due to normal wear and tear (e.g. minor scratches on bones and/or crystals)

Could you please let me know the meaning of "bones" in this sentence?

Thank
QP
