"Run!" screamed the yellow hen, fluttering away in great fright. "It's a Wheeler!"

"A Wheeler?" exclaimed Dorothy. "What can that be?"

The second excerpt represents the element of Fire. It speaks of emotional influences and base passions, and is drawn from Sarrasine by Honore de Balzac:

Cardinal Cicognara, who had watched from the corner of his eye the direction of his /protege's/ glance, saw the Frenchman; he leaned toward one of his ecclesiastical aides-de-camp, and apparently asked the sculptor's name.

Good shoulders enough, - a little marked, - traces of smallpox, perhaps, - but white. . . . . CRAC! from the SERGENT- DE-VILLE'S broad palm on the white shoulder! Now look! VOGUE LA GALERE!
