For the second time Sir Eustace realized himself to be at a disadvantage; haughtily he passed the matter by. "In that case there is nothing further to be said. You have fulfilled your somewhat rash undertaking, and that you have come out of the business with a whole skin is a bigger piece of luck than you deserved. If Dinah wishes this matter to go any further, she must come to me herself."

She spoke impatiently, haughtily, and swept out to her carriage. Val did not follow to place her in; he positively did not, but left her to the servants. Never in his whole life perhaps had he felt so nettled, never so resolute: the once vacillating, easily-persuaded man, when face to face with people, was speedily finding the will he had only exercised behind their backs.

"What would I do without you, and if you were captured how could you collect your reward?" "I should escape," he said. "At any rate I shall try it," and he started to rise. "You shall not," said the girl, her tone all authority. The man looked at her quickly questioningly. "You have entered my service," she said, a trifle haughtily.

"They say, that you're treated very roughly ... beaten at times ... compelled to do that which you don't want to and which is repulsive to you?" "Never, madam!" dropped Elsa haughtily. "We all live here as a friendly family of our own. We are all natives of the same land or relatives, and God grant that many should live so in their own families as we live here.

"Well, captain, I don't care whether the spar be large or small; I've two carpenters on board, and I'll soon dub it down into shape." "I inquired about the vessel I did not refer to the spar," replied Captain Delmar, haughtily. "And I referred to the spar, which is my business, and not to the vessel, which is no consarn of mine," replied the American captain.

With a smile and a bow, what could Rex do but lead Daisy gracefully forward. Those who witnessed the scene that ensued never forgot it. For answer Pluma Hurlhurst turned coldly, haughtily toward them, drawing herself up proudly to her full height. "There is evidently some mistake here," she said, glancing scornfully at the slight, girlish figure leaning upon Rex Lyon's arm.

"Reflect as long as you like. But if you decline, I will hand the case over to the next man on the Scotland Yard list. He may not deal with you so gently." "I don't care how he deals with me," returned Mallow, haughtily; "having done no wrong, I am not afraid. And, what is more, Jennings, I was coming to see you as soon as I returned. You have only forestalled our interview."

I crowded close, caught his words, memorized the few questions, and there was I with my "Poomaynes?"

Fuselli went to the main square again, casting an envious glance in the window of the Cheval Blanc, where he saw officers playing billiards in a well-lighted room painted white and gold, and a blond girl in a raspberry-colored shirtwaist enthroned haughtily behind the bar.
