But their eyes met ah! those Acadian maidens, they do it all with their eyes! and lover and maiden passed out and walked forth side by side. They are going that way still, only with hands joined.

It saves him a long walk or ride about the head of the bayou." "Like I should take you out in her, Miss Betty?" demanded Hannibal with palpitating anxiety. They had entered the scattering timber when Betty paused suddenly with a startled exclamation, and Hannibal felt her fingers close convulsively about his.

This they ascended, and so finally, early in one evening, at the bank of a wide and placid bayou, shaded by willows and birch trees, and by great elms that bore aloft a canopy of clinging vines, they made a landing for the bivouac which was to prove their final tarrying place.

At two o'clock on the morning of the 22d of May, Banks and Grover, with the advance of Grover's division, landed at Bayou Sara without meeting any opposition from the enemy, who, up to this time, seems not to have suspected the movement.
