Make Dictionary layout look Pretty

I'm using Webster's revised unabridged Dictionary (1913) and was wondering if there is a way to make the layout look more readable. Currently most words have unnecessary indentation that make reading difficult. Here is an example:

Adulation:
Compliment may be a sincere expression of due
respect
and esteem, or it may be unmeaning; flattery is apt
to
become gross; adulation is always servile, and
usually
fulsome.

Is there a moderately simple way to correct this? If not, is there another dictionary anyone could recommend as a replacement?

A work around for that particular dictionary would be to shrink the dictionary's font so that the line before the line break fits within the width of the text box rather than wrap.
