Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Arlo Bates
  Buzz in the ear like gnats.  1
  Crooked as the streets of Boston.  2
  Doubtful antecedent is as fatal to a pronoun as to sausage.  3
  Glossy as a shark’s tooth.  4
  Her lips were like pomegranate blossoms.  5
Like to a coin, passing from hand to hand,
Are common memories, and day by day
The sharpness of their impress wears away.
  Tame as tepid milk.  7
