"As a friend," replied she; "he was so well acquainted with all the secrets of grief." "And you will perform in Italian," cried Mr Edgermond; "and I shall hear you! And you too, my dear Nelville. Ah, how happy you will be!" Then, repenting immediately this indiscreet word, he blushed: and a blush inspired by delicacy and goodness may be interesting at all periods of life.

"I don't care nothing about Jabez, nor what he likes, nor what he doesn't," cried Fanny, bending down over her oven to hide a conscious blush which would spread over her round cheeks. "There's good and bad of every sort, and I don't despise none. I only pities 'em if they ain't Demshur." "That is awfully good of you," said Dan solemnly. "We can cheer up again after that.

I'm glad I'm not engaged to you, Mr. Lane, if that's the kind of thing you say." Eugene opened his mouth, shut it again, and then said blandly: "So am I." "Thank you! You need not be afraid." "If I were engaged to you, I mightn't like you so well." A slight blush became visible on Claudia's usually pale cheek. Eugene looked away toward the horizon.

On the contrary he bore down upon the finale of the narrative with all the vigor of a surgeon performing a serious duty, adding that she had had her wishes in the matter gratified, and she ought to be satisfied that their listener was a genuine lover, and not one seeking a wife for her possessions.

Mrs. Doria peevishly exclaimed, "Oh! fish-cake, I suppose! I wish he understood a little better the obligations of relationship."

Ah, well, she had had no time to go deeply into the matter just then, with that prunella silk on her hands; but she was 'very intriguee' very! She had just nodded to Mrs. James, most averse at the first blush to accepting any news confirmatory of his own poignant suspicions, took her up at once.
