His Majesty deigned to favor the proposal, and an edict for giving a civil status to Protestants was included in the batch of bills submitted to the Parliament of Paris for registration.

The guests read steadily through the current batch of magazines, and fell back gradually, on the "Badminton Library" and bound volumes of PUNCH. Lady Blemley made periodic visits to the pantry, returning each time with an expression of listless depression which forestalled questioning. At two o'clock Clovis broke the dominating silence. "He won't turn up to-night.

'I've a batch of bread in the cabin, and I don't want it to fall. Besides, my feet are getting cold. The rest of the men manifested their impatience in various suggestive ways. 'But the rope, Kid' It's bran' new, an' sure yer bread's not that heavy it needs raisin' with the like of that? Bettles by this time had faced around.

"I've warned you," roared Carter, for now the engine was going. Tam nodded a smiling farewell as the machine skipped and ran over the ground before it swooped upward into space. He went back to his room, but had hardly settled himself to the examination of a new batch of blood-curdling literature before Blackie strode in. "Mr. Carter's down, Tam," he said. "Doon!"
