"You have given me something to think of that is better than wooing and wedding, Nanna. My heart is quite full. I am more of a man than I have ever been. I can feel this hour that there is life behind me as well as before me. But I will go now, for to-morrow is the Sabbath and we shall meet at the kirk; and I will carry Vala home for you if you say so, Nanna."

When a courtier presumed to ask him what he was looking at, he said, 'I am searching for those costly walls of Panama. They ought to be visible even from here. They cost ten million dollars, you know, when dollars were worth a good deal more than they are now. Look! There's Taboga." Following her gaze, Kirk beheld a mountain of amethyst rising out of the bay.

Farmer Stubbs was very unwilling to put himself into the power of Colonel Kirk and his lambs, and declined going with the sum of money necessary to bribe those in authority. Mr Battiscombe had the money ready, which he hoped would be sufficient. He first thought of Mr Handscombe, but on applying to Mr Willoughby, who had last heard from him, he found that he had left London, no one knew whither.

Edith stood for a moment on the threshold, then, seeing that he made no motion to accompany her, she said good- night, and, quietly entering, closed the door behind her. Kirk experienced a sudden desire to escape. To remain where he was simply prolonged his humiliation.

Nothing like it has been seen on earth since trembling Tam O'Shanter saw the devil and the witches at their orgies that stormy night in "Alloway's auld haunted kirk." We visited the Louvre, at a time when we had no silk purchases in view, and looked at its miles of paintings by the old masters.

Ramon Alfarez was beside her, and the two were chatting with an appearance of intimacy that made him furious. Close at hand stood Garavel, deep in conversation with Colonel Jolson. "Ah, Ramon, I wish you to meet Mr. Anthony," said Gertrudis. "So! You have met before?" "In Colon," Kirk explained, while Alfarez scorched him with his eyes. "Mr. Alfarez was very hospitable to me."

But Kirk was not so ready to leave the instrument. "Why don't we get that, Phil?" he begged. "We must have it; don't you think so?" "It will go for much more than we can afford," said Felicia. "And you have the Maestro's piano. Listen! They're beginning to sell the things around here." "But you haven't the Maestro's piano!"

"She could lure the butterflies in the garden to her," which reminds us of Browning's whistling for lizards at Asolo. A fierce bull-dog intractable to all others, to her was docile and obedient. In her domestic ways she was gentle yet energetic. Her piety was deep and pure. Her husband had been in his earlier years a member of the Anglican communion; she was brought up in the Scottish kirk.

She went up to his room and made it neat, which was ever in disorder on his leaving, and then she went to a western window and looked into the far distance. Every Sabbath at eleven o'clock, or as soon thereafter as the people were seated consideration was always shown to distant figures coming down from the high glen Carmichael held what might be called High Mass in the Free Kirk.

She wept gently; and when Effie spoke of the love that should bind them all closely together, now that they were orphans, she prayed inwardly that God would make her more patient and loving than she had lately been. Her heart was lighter than it had been for days, when they rose to go. They went to the kirk together the next day too.
