"Come along, though, and I'll give you some chocolate, and perhaps, if you're good, a stuffed olive. I got them just because I knew you liked them. I ought to stay here and receive, so I can't look after you for long." The two fought their way through the crowded rooms to the luncheon-table, and Miss Herrick got Wilbur his chocolate and his stuffed olives.

Herrick, I do not want to hurt you, I would not add to your trouble for the world, but at least you will do me the justice of owning that I never gave you any encouragement." "No," he returned, in a tone of forced composure, "you never encouraged me in my presumption. I loved you because I could not help myself because you were Elizabeth Templeton and I was Malcolm Herrick."

Herrick herself looked anxious and weary. "I've come to tell you that Mrs. Britton is here. She came an hour ago." "Where is she?" "In the breakfast-room with Mr. Cressy." "Oh," Flora cried, "you know I didn't expect them. I didn't want them. It wasn't for them I asked you to come." "But can't you tell me what it is you're afraid of?" the other urged. "Between us can't we prevent it?

"What'll the hands think of it?" said Herrick. "O, they don't think. They ain't paid to," says the captain. "There was something wrong, was there not? between you and " Herrick paused. "That's a nasty little beast; that's a biter," replied the captain, shaking his head. "But so long as you and me hang in, it don't matter."

"You brace up, and we'll see about that. You're all run down, that's what's wrong with you; you're all nerves, like Jemimar; you've got to brace up good and be yourself again, and then we'll talk." "To sea," reiterated Herrick, "to sea to-night now this moment!" "It can't be, my son," replied the captain firmly. "No ship of mine puts to sea without provisions; you can take that for settled."

It's a pretty name for a white wolfhound, isn't it? They're like pearls, somehow, so smooth and shining." She was stroking the dog's satiny head as she spoke, and did not notice the change in the man's face; but when he remained silent she looked up as though to see why he did not respond. "Oh, Mr. Herrick, what's the matter?" Toni was frightened by his pallor. "Nothing nothing!"

She felt as astonished as if some Confucian fanatic had set up his joss at auction. Clara complacently nodded. "Mrs. Herrick spoke to me herself. They don't want any publicity about it, but she had heard that we were looking, and she did me the favor" Clara smiled a little dryly "of telling me first." Flora looked reflective. "I've never seen it, but they say it's beautiful."

Petersburg handed the Russian Government a declaration of war. To-day the German Government asked the United States to take its diplomatic and consular business in Russia in hand. Herrick, our Ambassador in Paris, has already taken the German interests there. It is reported in London to-day that the Germans have invaded Luxemburg and France.

I said to myself, for I felt that they were deserters, and, after watching for their reappearance, I was about to turn the glass upon the junks again, when I noticed a peculiar agitation of the branches of one tree, which stood up far above the others. "Well, Mr Herrick, I am waiting for your reports," cried the first lieutenant. "Yes, sir," I shouted.

So he fetched me along in his car." Sara's eyes rested thoughtfully on Trent's face a moment. It was odd how kindly and considerate he always showed himself towards Miles Herrick. Perhaps somewhere within him a responsive chord was touched by the evidence of the other man's broken life.
