Roberts, they, one and all, resigned themselves to the worst; and while their fellow-countrymen at home were still utterly and scornfully incredulous on the subject, devoted their remaining hours exclusively to spiritual preparation for death upon the scaffold. It was now that each character "rushed to its index."

More to the left!" shouted the people in a panic, while Gessler roared with laughter, and bade Tell shoot and chance it. "If you can't hit the apple or your son," he chuckled, "you can bring down one of your dear fellow-countrymen." Tell lowered his bow, and a sigh of relief went through the crowd. "My eyes are swimming," he said; "I cannot see." Then he turned to the Governor.

Then George once more spoke. "I think, senors," he said, "that you are alarming yourselves quite unnecessarily unless indeed you feel that you are unable to rely upon the good faith of your fellow-countrymen. For your safety depends entirely upon that.

My Zulu fellow-countrymen understand as clearly as anyone the weakness and the strength of the present time. If the Zulu wished to remember Kambula and Ulundi, this would be his supreme opportunity to rise and hurl himself across the Natal frontier.

We, who are Napoleon's fellow-countrymen, are perhaps less attached to him than the French. As for myself, though my family was formerly at enmity with his, I both love and admire him." "You speak English!" exclaimed the colonel. "Very ill, as you may perceive!"

"True enough," said Le Chapelier gloomily; and then, as if suddenly leaping to the thing in Andre-Louis' mind: "Andre!" he cried. "Would you..." "It is what I was considering.

The admiral gratefully acknowledged the warm welcome of the New Yorkers, while modestly disavowing, as far as he could, his claim to extraordinary merit in the brilliant services which he asserted were but the performance of his duty; and he thankfully accepted, as the spontaneous offering of his fellow-countrymen, the recompense which in older countries is the usual reward of distinguished military success, but conferred there through the formal medium of the central government.

Master Basil, whose learning is wonderful, did persuade me for the nonce that my duty lay along the path you are treading; but my mind misgives me woefully, and I cannot see that it is an honest thing to work in secret against the whole body of my fellow-countrymen." Jerome's face had darkened, and Basil's lips were working evilly.
