How can you expect her to coquette with Calyste? She is never here long enough to undertake it. Whereas, if they see each other every day, those two children will fall in love, and you can marry them next winter. If you say two words about it to Charlotte she'll say four to Calyste, and a girl of sixteen can certainly carry off the prize from a woman of forty."

"Ah! a trick played upon us by Mademoiselle des Touches," she said, smiling. Three hours passed, during which Madame de Rochefide held Calyste to the consideration of conjugal faith, pointing out to him the horrible alternative of an utter renunciation of Sabine. Nothing else could reassure her, she said, in the dreadful situation to which Calyste's love would reduce her.

And if Calyste loved the child of that woman more than mine Oh! that's the end of my patience and all my resignation." She fell into a chair. She had given vent to the deepest thought in her heart; she had no longer a hidden grief; and secret sorrow is like that iron rod that sculptors put within the structure of their clay, it supports, it is a force. "Come, go home, dear sufferer.

The handsome young man in his black velvet coat, the mother, still so beautiful, and the aged brother and sister framed by that ancient hall, were a moving domestic harmony. Fanny would fain have questioned Calyste, but he had already pulled a letter from his pocket, that letter of the Marquise Beatrix, which was, perhaps, destined to destroy the happiness of this noble family.

Calyste, with easy indifference, was quite willing to let his sister-in-law Clotilde and his mother-in-law the duchess guide him in all matters of social life, and they were both very grateful for his obedience. He obtained the place in society which was due to his name, his fortune, and his alliance.

The dragons who guard treasures are always armed with claws and wings." "I shall make a sonnet on that thought," replied Canalis at the very moment when Calyste entered the box. With a single glance Beatrix divined the state of Calyste's heart; she saw the marks of the collar she had put upon him at Les Touches, still fresh and red.

During breakfast, which Calyste was invited to share, the marquise, whose sentiments could be noble and generous, made a sudden return upon herself, resolving to stifle the germs of love which were rising in her heart. She was neither cold nor hard to Calyste, but gently indifferent, a course which tortured him.

These fellows took their bribes and replaced their ribbons at the barrier. "Well, good-bye, Sabine," said the duchess; "remember your promise; write to me often. Calyste, I say nothing more to you, but you understand me."

I never look at Thisbe but what I see the hands of Madame l'Amirale." "Did you see Madame de Rochefide?" asked Calyste. "No," replied the chevalier. "It is sixty-eight years since I have looked at any woman with attention except your mother, who has something of Madame l'Amirale's complexion." Three days later, the chevalier said to Calyste, on the mall,

"I know what it is about." The young wife sat down. No longer did fever burn her, she wept no more; but madness such as, in feeble beings, gives birth to miracles of crime, madness which lays hands on arsenic for themselves or for their rivals, possessed her. At this moment little Calyste was brought in, and she took him in her arms to dance him.
