She was an open car, capable of some eighteen miles on the flat, with tetanic gears and a perpetual palsy. 'It won't make the least difference, sighed the Agent-General. 'He'll only raise his voice. He did it all the way coming down. 'I say, said Penfentenyou suspiciously, 'what are you doing all this for? 'Love of the Empire, I answered, as Mr. Lingnam tripped up in dust-coat and binoculars.

After that first moment, the picture blurred a little with the bustle of arrival. Aunt Caroline, large and light in her cream dust-coat, seemed everywhere. The dimness fled before her and rooms and stairs and a white-capped maid emerged. The rooms confused Desire, there were so many of them and all with such a strong family likeness of dark furniture and chintz.

"You're just as fond of making a sensation as I am," replied he. "And, my eye, Del! but you do know how." This with an admiring glance at her most becoming hat with its great, gracefully draped chiffon veil, and at her dazzling white dust-coat with its deep blue facings that matched her eyes. She laughed. "Just wait till you see my new dresses and hats." "Another shock for your poor father."

Moore's surgery, where he was just taking off his gloves and dust-coat. "What do you mean, John Moore, by daring, daring to think you can go and take Billy away from me?" I demanded, looking at him with what must have been such fear and madness in my face that he was startled as he came close to the table against which I leaned.

Not a few motor-cars mingled with horsemen and wagons of various sorts in the roadway, but as Buck's glance fell on a big, shiny, black touring-car standing at the curb, he was struck by a sudden feeling of familiarity. Mechanically he noted the license-number. Then his eyes narrowed as he saw the pudgy, heavily-built figure in the tan dust-coat on the point of descending from the tonneau.

Lady Auriol, myself and the car met punctually at the hotel door at ten o'clock. There was also a chasseur with Lady Auriol's dust-coat and binoculars, and a concierge with advice. We waited for Bakkus.

They were walking along the glimmering cañon of La Salle Street, which was now almost deserted in the dusk. A motor-car swept slowly around the corner ahead and came toward them. It had but one occupant, a chauffeur, apparently. He wore a dust-coat, a cap, and goggles which seemed to be too large for him.

He was perspiring, red in the face, and gloomy. . . . "Do you come out to your holiday home every day?" said a summer visitor, in ginger-coloured trousers, addressing him. "No, not every day," Zaikin answered sullenly.
