"I dare say not," I murmured, humbly. "Especially," she continued, reflectively, "when you consider that, though society is foolish, there is really nothing else at present to take its place to give a girl what nothing else is likely to give her I do not say nothing else can give it to her, but nothing else is in the least likely to; and when you consider the vast number of wives and mothers who have been through it all when they were young, and are charming and yes, Fred, sensible, intelligent women to-day.

Think then of to-day, humbly putting away the rebellion and despondency corroding your life, and it will be with you as it has been; you shall know again the peace which passes understanding, the old ineffable happiness in the sights and sounds of earth. Common things shall seem rare and beautiful to you. Listen to the chiff-chaff ingeminating the familiar unchanging call and message of spring.

"Well, if you don't see any difference between breaking up grass and giving up church ..." "They are both a revolt from habit." "Now, don't you talk like that it ain't seemly. I don't like hearing a man make a mock of good things, and going to church is a good thing, as I should ought to know, having just come out of it." "I'm sorry," said Martin humbly, and for some reason he felt ashamed.

"From this hour I count you as one of mine," he said; "you shall be received into the holy band of spirits! You shall be consecrated, and enter the Inner Temple. Are you prepared?"

Of all our princely house not one is left save only me and Palamon, whom Theseus slays in prison. Even I, free though I am, am helpless to win Emelia. What am I to her but an humble squire?"

One cannot ask for more than love and kindness; and if you think humbly of yourself Arthur, the love and kindness are diminished are they? I often thought our dearest mother spoiled you at home, by worshipping you; and that if you are I hate the word what you say, her too great fondness helped to make you so.

"And if we could remove her from the parish," said Lester, "it would be a happy day for the village.
