Her face was deeply flushed and her manner unusually agitated. "Why, what's the matter?" asked Dorothy. "Has he assailed thee, too?" "He is telling the baron such a tale," replied the maid. "He says thou lovest him, and he is asking Sir George and my lady for thy hand. "I know it, Lettice." "They are in the little bower, and I could hear everything," pursued the maid.

They returned by a different route, entering the house by a side-door, and the visitors were surprised to see the display of flowers that bloomed in the outer porch, making it, indeed, a bower of beauty. "Why! you have made quite an addition to the house since I was here last," said Gertrude, as she stood to admire the blossoms. "No, not an addition, only a little alteration," said Maggie.

Taking two of his men with him he rode up by the edge of 'the Waste' towards Coplestone Fell, with intent to capture Si, or, should he evade capture, to leave a citation at 'the Bower' for his appearance at the next meeting of the Lord Wardens on account of notorious breakage of the Border law.

A younger bird is in his nest, And sings sweet songs from Dark-Days once fair bower, And I am lov'd no more. He will be no more to me as the sun, Which gives the young trees life in gentle spring.

You resemble an ogre you're not going to eat Mr. Verty?"

A terrace planted with limetrees extended on one side of the garden. It was at this spot that Madame de Tecle was seated under a group of lime-trees, forming a rustic bower.
