Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
W. Clark Russell
 
  Bright as a new bell.  1
  Dark as the bottom of a well.  2
  Faint … as the wavering flame of spirits of wine.  3
  Gurgled like the cry of a drowning man.  4
  Hisses like red-hot iron.  5
  Sluggish as liquid pitch.  6
  Everything at the top and nothing at bottom, like a midshipman’s chest.  7
  Trembled like a freezing man.  8
