He sat down, and a silence of some moments ensued, when another arose, and, without any preliminary remarks, moved that "a company of regulators be now organized, and that they be charged with the duty of seeing the law administered." The motion was seconded by half a dozen voices the question was put in due form by the chairman, and decided unanimously in the affirmative.

'SCAT! once, cried I again, as I brought my gun to a present. 'SCAT! twice, and I aimed straight at the chairman, covering half a dozen others in the range. 'SCAT! three times, and I let drive.

'Trent? 'The chairman of the meeting. 'Got us ? 'Miss Levering and me. Stonor's incensed face turned almost brick colour as he repeated, 'Miss Lev ! Before he got the name out, the folding doors had opened again, and the butler was saying, 'Mr. Farnborough.
