He opened it, and outside in the hall stood Adrienne. Her face was pale, and she leaned a little on the hand which rested against the white jamb. "What does it mean?" she asked. He came over. "It means, Drennie," he said, "that you may make a pet of a leopard cub, but there will come a day when something of the jungle comes out in him and he must go.

With an economy worthy of Silhouette, the scamp had taught Adrienne for that was the beast's name to bray every time he said "Pommes de terre, de terre terre!" As often as he said this, or "Chante, Adrienne, chante!" Adrienne would switch her tail and chante lugubriously, setting the whole neighborhood in commotion.

After Adrienne and Samson had disappeared, he rejoined his companion, a stout, middle-aged gentleman of florid complexion, whose cheviot cutaway and reposeful waistcoat covered a liberal embonpoint. Farbish took his cigar from his lips, and studied its ascending smoke through lids half-closed and thoughtful. "Singular," he mused; "very singular!"

"That's where it is: they envy your happiness, and that which you bestow upon others." "And it is my aunt," cried Adrienne, with indignation, "my aunt, whose whole life has been one long scandal that accuses me in this revolting manner! as if she did not know me proud and honest enough never to make a choice of which I should be ashamed!

"Madame, she went downstairs two hours ago; she was wanted for something very pressing." "Who wanted her?" "The young person who serves Madame as secretary.

"But surely won't they go to Red Gables?" Max shook his head. "No. It wouldn't be safe after this this affair. The same brute might try to get her again. You see, it's quite well known that she has a house at Crailing."
