Jenny, I'm afraid you're a fickle little person, after all." How strange it seemed to hear Jenny talked to like that now.... Yes, of course, Jenny was dead. Jenny was dead ... and Isabel was calling. Was Jenny losing her power in this intoxicating fragrance of Isabel's words as though for once the cross should lose its virtue in some subtle air of hellish sweetness?

Stafford, sat on his knee, and wound one arm round his neck. "Jim darling," she murmured in his ear, "have you any money?" "Isabel," said Mr. Stafford, "how often have I told you that I will not be interrupted in the middle of my morning's work?

I had a good deal of talk with him; he has come after you." "Did he tell you so?" "No, he told me nothing; that's how I knew it," said Henrietta cleverly. "He said very little about you, but I spoke of you a good deal." Isabel waited. At the mention of Mr. Goodwood's name she had turned a little pale.

"To be sure I will, when I recover the use of my fingers," returned Isabel laughing.

What it did for her in the imagination of others is another affair, and on this point we must also touch in time. The visions I have just spoken of were mixed with other debates. Isabel liked better to think of the future than of the past; but at times, as she listened to the murmur of the Mediterranean waves, her glance took a backward flight.

She hurried on her things; and Isabel, her hair blowing about her face, went out to uncover the horse and speed the departure. The reins in her hands, aunt Luceba bent forward once more to add, "Isabel, if there's one thing left for me to say, to tole you over to live with us, I want to say it." Isabel laughed.
