When she would know all, they seemed to substitute themselves for that which she saw through them, and she found herself noticing their size, their prominence, the exact shade of their brown hue. And the quick human creature behind them was hidden from her. But Gaspare was right. She did look ill. Emile would notice it directly.

"I heard you talking of the fattura della morte," Artois said. Ruffo reddened slightly. "Si, Signore." "Your mother made it?" Ruffo did not answer. Gaspare stood by, watching and listening with deep, half-suspicious attention. "I heard you say so." "Si, Signore. My mamma made it." "And told you to bring it to the island and put it in the house to-night?" "Si, Signore."

But you don't know your padrone. He won't forget us." Lucrezia reddened. She feared she had perhaps said something that seemed disrespectful. "Oh, signora, there is not another like the padrone. Every one says so. Ask Gaspare and Sebastiano. I only meant that " "I know. Well, to-day you will understand that all men are not forgetful, when you eat your fish."

"The povero signorino! the povero signorino!" he cried, in a choked voice. "And I put roses above his ears! Si, signora, I did! I said he should be a real Siciliano!" He began to rock himself to and fro. His whole body shook, and his face had a frantic expression that suggested violence. "I put roses above his ears!" he repeated. "That day he was a real Siciliano!" "Gaspare Gaspare hush! Don't!

He found at once that Gaspare had spoken the truth. This man had been dead for some time. Nevertheless, something he scarcely knew what kept the doctor there by the bed for some moments before he pronounced his verdict. Never before had he felt so great a reluctance to speak the simple words that would convey a great truth.

But once more, as he would have expressed it to a Sicilian comrade, they were "in three." And still another period began. And now that period was ended. As Gaspare rowed slowly on towards the island, in his simple and yet shrewd way he was pondering on life, on its irresistible movement, on its changes, its alternations of grief and joy, loneliness and companionship.

In Cesare's train went Ramiro de Lorqua, the Master of his Household; Agabito Gherardi, his secretary; and his Spanish physician, Gaspare Torella the only medical man of his age who had succeeded in discovering a treatment for the pudendagra which the French had left in Italy, and who had dedicated to Cesare his learned treatise upon that disease.

If obstacles were to be put in her way she would overleap them. At all costs she would emerge from the darkness in which she was walking. A heat of anger rushed over her. She felt as if Gaspare, and perhaps Artois, were treating her like a child. "I must go to Mergellina, Gaspare," she said. "And I shall go by tram. Please row me to the village." "Va bene, Signora," he answered.

And that night in the garden with Hermione With all the force and fixity of purpose he fastened his mind upon Hermione, letting Gaspare go. If what the Marchesino had asserted were true not that but if Hermione had believed it to be true, much in her conduct that had puzzled Artois was made plain. Could she have thought that? Had she thought it?

On Saturday a fête was given at the house of Gaspare di Pusterla. Beatrice looked particularly charming with a feather of rubies in her hair, and a crimson satin robe embroidered with a pattern of knots and compasses and many ribbons, "after her favourite fashion," adds Teodora.
