As I turned round to shut the door behind me noiselessly I caught sight of a woman’s dress on a chair, of other articles of apparel scattered about.

In talking to an old woman who brought us strawberries, I was surprised to hear her pronounce the Italian proverb, "Poco a poco fa lontano nel giorno." I thought she must have been beyond the Alps no, she had never been out of her own mountains. The patois of these people is very agreeable a mixture of the Italian fond diminutives and accents on the last syllable Septembre, Octobre.

Jerome," called "Il Giorno," he was given "400 gold imperials, some cartloads of faggots and measures of wheat, and a fat pig."

In the splendid aria, 'Bel Raggio, the solfeggi and fioriture that she lavishes on the audience were executed with such marvelous tone and precision that she electrified the house. The grand duet with Alboni, 'Giorno d'orrore, was exquisitely and nobly impressive from their dramatic interpretation of the scene." In 1861 Mlle. Titiens made an engagement with Mr.

How the driver stares at us, dear, simple soul!" So Miss Lavish proceeded through the streets of the city of Florence, short, fidgety, and playful as a kitten, though without a kitten's grace.
