"I am so glad that you really do not mind," she said, in a relieved tone; "but I fancied you would not approve. You almost said as much one day."

"I can well imagine it," Cairy replied dryly, surprised at Vickers's sudden loquacity on family matters. "But I suppose we ought to be moving on, hadn't we, to get that express? You see I am a poor walker at the best." Vickers struck off by the river path, leading the way. Suddenly he stopped, and with flushed face said: "Tom, I wish you wouldn't come back to-morrow!" "And why the devil "

"I see," he said dryly. "The pinking of your doublet suits me not, either," I declared. "I could make it more to my liking," and I touched his Genoa three-pile with the point of my rapier. A loud murmur arose from the crowd, and the Governor started forward, crying out, "Captain Percy! Are you mad?" "I was never saner in my life, sir," I answered.

"But I tell you that Nora is as innocent as her own babe; and her character shall be cleared before the day is out!" exclaimed Hannah, tears of rage and shame welling to her eyes. "Yes, honey, I dessay; and when it's done I'll come back and nuss her for nothing, too," replied the old woman dryly, as she put on her bonnet and shawl.

"It seems to me that the motto over the door of this place ought to be, 'He who enters here leaves soap behind." "Where did you find that?" laughed George.

The shooting of one appeared to have a good effect on the others, for although many a menacing glance was east upon us, and many a half-uttered oath was checked, yet there was no more struggling, or thoughts of resistance. "I thought you dead," muttered Nosey, after a keen glance at the face of the lieutenant. "It is not your fault that we are not," answered Murden, dryly.

'Wot time will ye be back, m'am, an' I'll send a boat, sez I. 'I dunno, sez she, 'I may be late, so I shall return in a native boat. She axed your maid, miss, to bring a wrap from her cabin, and she was gone without another word." "Then that settles it," interposed Mr. Fenshawe dryly. "Mrs. Haxton is a lady who knows her own mind.
