"We will have no more midnight strolls, Mr. Stanford," said Rose, sharply; "and you see quite as much of me as I wish you to see. My lord I beg your pardon were you addressing me?" She turned from Stanford, sitting beside her and talking under the cover of the clatter of spoons and knives, and flashed the light of her most dazzling smile upon Lord Ellerton, sitting opposite.

The silence of the night was broken by the violent clatter of footsteps, apparently approaching the embassy. The noise was unmistakable some one was running. "The window!" Miss Thorne whispered. She rose quickly and started to cross the room, to look out; Mr. Grimm sat motionless, listening.

Wrenching myself away, I dealt him a buffet that stretched him flat on the ground. This scene had passed within a few paces of the gate, and I had been so preoccupied that I had not heard the clatter of an approaching horse, and in consequence was taken utterly aback when a loud voice behind me cried, "What's this?

Now, as he stood before the littered table, he glanced out at the sun. The morning was advancing all too rapidly. His eyes drifted across to his wife. She was still reading. A light sigh escaped him. He felt he should be out on his claim. However, without further thought he took the boiler of hot water off the stove and began to wash up. It was the clatter of the plates that made Jessie look up.

We had with us exactly one hundred dollars, which I had borrowed of Darrie before we parted on our several ways. I registered for Hildreth and myself as "Mr. Arthur Mallory and wife," in the register of an obscure hotel hear the noise and clatter of a hundred trains drawing continually out and in.

Loud coughing and choking, mixed with a clatter of teaspoons and china and, amid a terrified silence, the fog-horn exclaimed: "Surely, Mrs. Gussie, I told you plain enough that sugar in my tea makes me sick." I apologized as well as I could, and repaired my want of attention, and then I felt my other guests must claim me, so I whispered to Antony: "Do go and talk to Lady Wakely, please.

A hot appeal flashed in Ronador's eyes and eloquently again he fell to pleading. But Diane had caught the clatter of the music-machine up the road where Philip was good-humoredly unwinding the hullabaloo for a crowd of gleeful young darkies, and suddenly she turned very white and stern. "No! No!" she said. "It must be as I said."

"The master will be here soon," said Gertie, wiping the flour and pieces of dough off her hands; "we must be quick. Is the pot ready?" Venus responded with a "Ja," and a grin which displayed a splendid casket of pearls. Just then the clatter of hoofs was heard. "Why, here they come already, and in such a hurry too!" said Gertie in surprise, untying her apron hastily.

There was a black patch on the band that came round, and it pleased him somehow among all the clatter to watch this return again and again. Odd thoughts spun with the whirl of it.
