But when it was nearly ten, Dorcas, impatiently anxious to know the result of Mr. Gilfil's appearance, could not help stepping in on tip-toe. Without moving, he whispered in her ear to supply him with candles, see that the cow-boy had shaken down his mare, and go to bed he would watch with Caterina a great change had come over her. Before long, Tina's lips began to move.

Moreover, as Mary Harmer sometimes said, why should not she and Reuben be quietly married out here before they returned to the city, and then they could go back to their own house when all the negotiations had been completed and her father's mind relieved of its load of care? "Why should Dorcas not come?" asked Mary quickly. "My brother spoke of bringing all."

H afterwards demanded, as I may say, to be admitted to afternoon-tea with me: and appealed by Dorcas to his behaviour to me last night; as if I sent him word by her, he thought he had a merit in being unexceptionable. However, I repeated my promise to meet him as early as he pleased in the morning, or to breakfast with him.

So soon as the dust and ashes of railway travel were removed, the pale captain, in changed attire, snowy cambric, and with perfumed hair and handkerchief, presented himself before Dorcas. 'Now, Dorkie, darling, your poor soldier has come back, resolved to turn over a new leaf, and never more to reserve another semblance of a secret from you, said he, so soon as his first greeting was over.

For a while Dorcas had been rather nervous of leaving the house in Allhallowes unless Reuben was waiting for her. But as she had seen no more of the gallant who had accosted her, and as it was said on all hands that these had left London in hundreds, she had taken courage of late, and had bidden her brother not incommode himself on her account, if it were difficult for him to be her escort home.

"Why shouldn't you?" "You see I wasn't sure if you would like it," returned Griselda, "for of course you're not like a person, and and I've been told all sorts of queer things about what fairies like and don't like." "Who said I was a fairy?" inquired the cuckoo. "Dorcas did, and, of course, my own common sense did too," replied Griselda. "You must be a fairy you couldn't be anything else."

She had just time to see that it was a brougham, and to recognise the Brandon liveries, when it drew up at the garden wicket, and Dorcas called to her from the open window. 'I'm come, Rachel, expressly to take you with me; and I won't be denied. 'You are very good, Dorcas; thank you, dear, very much; but I am not very well, and a very dull companion to-day.

We saw him come in pride and wonder, and we saw him go in chains." Like all the Museum people, the Man-of-War Bird said "we" when he spoke of his ancestors. "There were others," said the Flamingo. "I remember an old man looking for a fountain." "Ponce de Leon," supplied Dorcas Jane, proud that she could pronounce it.

While Dorcas' motion was waiting for a second, there came down the road two pretty girls, in fluffy gowns, their white sunshades tilted charmingly. Max slammed the secretary's book shut.

When Link Ferris at last mustered courage to ask Dorcas Chatham to marry him his form of proposal would have been ruled out of any novel or play. It consisted chiefly of a mouthful of half-swallowed, half-exploded words, spoken all in one panic breath, to the accompaniment of a mortal fear that shook him to the marrow.
