She was hotly loyal to her own faiths; but she was conscious of what often seemed to her a dangerous and demoralizing interest in his!

Aware of this movement, the Byrnes prepared in the ravine of Ballyellis a well-laid ambuscade, barricading with carts and trees the farther end of the pass. Attacked by the royalists they retreated towards this pass, were hotly pursued, and then turned on their pursuers.

Miles, you are about the greatest goose that ever put on a red coat!" He was getting on, you see! If he had put "sinner" for "goose," his shot would have been nearer the mark; as it was, all things considered, it was not a miss. He smarted considerably under the self-condemnation. If a comrade had said as much he would have resented it hotly, but a man is wonderfully lenient to himself!

He lived at the lower end of the village, was well to do, a leading cranberry grower, and very prominent in the church.

Natalia fled with Peter and a few attendants to this refuge, hotly pursued, however, all the way by a body of the Guards.

As it was, they very narrowly escaped, for when Natalia arrived at the convent the soldiers were close upon her.

The divisions in the court, caused by the death of the Constable and the question of his successor, prevented any fresh movements of the army; and enabled the Prince of Conde, after being rejoined by D'Andelot's force, to retire unmolested three days after the battle; the advanced guard of the Royalists having been driven back into Paris by D'Andelot on his return when, in his disappointment at being absent from the battle, he fell fiercely upon the enemy, and pursued them hotly to the gates, burning several windmills close under the walls.

It was scoffing contemptuous but she could not tell at what it scoffed. He had not turned toward her. "I'm sorry," she repeated. "Ann will be sorry. She's so " He turned upon her hotly.
