She and this young woman met twice a day at their meals, in the morning and in the evening; their rooms were next each other, and at night Jacqueline could hear her through the thin partition giving utterance to sighs, which showed that she was unhappy.

A fortnight after this, Madame de Nailles, having come back to Paris, from some watering-place, was telling Marien that Jacqueline had started for Bellagio with Mr. and Miss Sparks, the latter having taken a notion that she wanted that kind of chaperon who is called a companion in England and America. "But they are of the same age," said Marien. "That is just what Miss Sparks wants.

If he had she would have answered, with a sigh: "I went to see my mother while Jacqueline was taking her dancing-lesson, and before she went to her singing-master." That she was passionately attached to Jacqueline was proved by the affection the little girl conceived for her. "We two are friends," both mother and daughter often said of each other.

Giselle illustrated this day by day in her relations to a husband as disagreeable as a husband well could be, a man of small intelligence, who was not even faithful to her. But she did not cite herself as an example. She never talked about herself, or her own difficulties. "You are an angel of sense and goodness," sobbed Jacqueline. "I will do whatever you wish me to do."

Jacqueline did not refute the statement, but merely began to manipulate the samovar in the manner learned of Max, while Maxine, yielding to her own delicious exaltation, fell again to her long, slow pacing of the floor. Presently the inviting smell of tea began to pervade the room, and Jacqueline set out a cup and saucer Max's first purchase from old Bluebeard of the curios. "Madame is served!"

"Out of consideration for Madame de Talbrun," she said, "the convent consents to keep Mademoiselle de Nailles a few days longer a few weeks perhaps, until she can find some other place to go. That is all we can do for her." Jacqueline listened to this sentence as she might have watched a game of dice when her fate hung on the result, but she showed no emotion.

Yet here incendiaries fire the temples of the Holy Ghost! The judges do not now congratulate. Jacqueline waits not now at midnight for the coming of Le Roy. Bride and bridegroom, there they stand; they face the world to give their testimony. And a woman's voice, almost I deem the voice of Elsie Méril, echoes the mother's cry that followed John Leclerc when he fought the beasts at Meaux,

To hear the poplars rustling and to smell the box again Is it not strange that I should have a light heart when they look so cold upon me?" "I have hopes of Uncle Dick, but Uncle Edward" Unity shook her head. "I don't understand Uncle Edward." "I do," answered Jacqueline, "and I love him most. I'll go now and leave you to the Last Minstrel. Does Fairfax Cary come to-night?" "He may "

Madame Odinska was waiting for her: she intended herself to take her to the convent, and for that purpose had assumed the imposing air of a noble matron. Alas! it was in vain! Jacqueline, was made to understand that such an infraction of the rules could not be overlooked. To pass the night without leave out of the convent, and not with her own family, was cause for expulsion.

I feel as though I were in a bare, light place. Underground, you know, but bare and flooded with light. Well, Jacqueline, well " She clung to him without speech, and he went on. "There is enough to create suspicion. We were travelling at the same hour, and it is known that we were opponents. The crossroads where I slept last night there was nothing, I think, said at the inn.
