She braced herself against this drag, and led him slowly back, wiping her face from time to time with her sleeve. There were moments when she thought she must let him sink on the road, but she fought through these, and as the sky was turning faintly gray over their heads, and the implacably silent stars were disappearing in this pale light, the two stumbled up the walk to the porch.

Without a glance in any direction, he strode into the centre of the log lodge, the dark worshippers fell aside, surprised into silence, and the slender Mohawk boy braced his shoulders, lifted his head, and "Don't, don't, Wampum, boy!" choked the missionary, "It is wild, it is useless. Stop, oh, stop!" But he might as well have ordered a hurricane to stop.

"Several days ago," she began, as the bend hid the station, "I got a letter from some lawyers, saying that an uncle of mine had given me a large sum of money a very large sum. I have been inquiring about it, and find it is mine absolutely." I braced myself against the worst.

The mere whispering together in this lonely part of the ship might account for it, to some extent, so he braced himself for the effort to restore her self-control.

The rope shot true to its mark and the first savage, with back half-turned, had failed to observe it coming. The great loop dropped over his head. The pony braced itself and Tad took a quick turn of the rope about the pommel of his saddle. The result was instantaneous. The Indian was catapulted from his saddle with arms pinioned to his aide.

It was improbable, though the hour was late and the night wild, that savage beasts or cares incarnate should actually be in possession of Dickie's disused nursery. Katherine braced herself and turned the handle. Still the vision disclosed by the opening door was at first sight monstrous enough.

"What's the matter?" he inquired; "what's up now?" Agnes put her hand into her pocket, and Tilly drew in her breath with a little gasp, and braced herself to come to the defence again when Agnes should answer this question, as she fully expected her to do, by producing the cutting from the newspaper and repeating her accusations.
