Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Stephen Crane
 
  Curled and writhed like a snake stepped upon.  1
  Dangle like a broken bough.  2
  Dripping like a laborer in a foundry.  3
  Fight like hell-roosters.  4
  Gave a glance as from the depths of a tomb.  5
  Involved like a cart involved in mud and muddle.  6
  Scold like a wet parrot.  7
  Stooped like sprinters before a signal.  8
  Stumbled like fat sheep.  9
  Sweeping along like the Huns.  10
