He stepped back to the door, and opened it ceremoniously. "Don't, however, let me delay you, Lady Kitty by my chatter." Kitty's cheeks were crimson. Her momentary yielding vanished in a passion of scorn. What! he knew that she had seen him before, seen him with that woman and he dared to play the mere shattered hero, kept in Venice by these crusader's reasons!

Every line breathes a deep anxiety on old Kitty's part for my soul's welfare, earthly considerations being non-important. Read, Frank, and if you will not devoutly wish that the doting fool was at the dev " "Stop, my dear James."

There was none in the room, and an arid look came into her face. The glance and its sequel did not escape Kitty's notice.

Amy had much rather not have been left alone just then; her own thoughts were not at all pleasant; but as she was alone she could not help thinking. At first she thought how unkind every one was, and of all the wrongs she had had to bear, of Kitty's laziness, of her mother's rebukes, and then of her beautiful rose, and the naughty baby.

Very well; the first sign of sentimental nonsense, and out he should go, Karlov or no Karlov. Kitty wasn't going to know any hurt in this affair. That much was decided. Cutty stormed into his study, growling audibly. He filled a pipe and smoked savagely. Another side, Kitty's entrance into the drama promised to spoil his own fun; he would have to play two games instead of one. A fine muddle!

I discussed the problem after breakfast as I sat and smoked my pipe in the heathery garden of Strathmyrtle, a shooting-lodge at which we were being hospitably entertained by Kitty's uncle, Sir John Rubislaw, a retired Admiral of the Fleet, whose forty years' official connection with Britannia's realm betrayed itself in a nautical roll, syncopated by gout, and what I may describe as a hurricane-deck voice.

It was easy to see he felt the force of this circumstance; and it is to be hoped that, as he was certainly a wiser, he also became a better man, on one of the most common of the weaknesses of human frailty. "Wa-a-l," he replied to my uncle's last remark, after fully a minute of silent reflection, "I don't know! It would seem so, I vow; and yet it hasn't been my wife's notion, nor is it Kitty's.

She thought she had managed splendidly. Kitty was miserable that night. An Irish girl has always her ups and downs. She is either up in the seventh heaven of bliss, or she is down almost below the ordinary earth in misery. Kitty was suffering from an intense revulsion of spirits. Laurie was in trouble. He was the best brother in all the world; he was Kitty's idol.

Kitty was startled for a moment, but it was only La Signorina. Kitty furtively wiped her eyes. "I am over here by the window. The moon was so bright I did not light the lamp." La Signorina moved with light step to the window, bent and caught Kitty's face between her hands and turned it firmly toward the moon. "You have been crying, cara!" "I am very lonely," said Kitty.

"I begs your honor's parden, sir," said Sailor Ben, lifting his tear-stained face above Kitty's tumbled hair; "I begs your honor's parden for kicking up a rumpus in the house, but it's my own little Irish lass as I lost so long ago!" "Heaven preserve us!" cried the Captain, blowing his nose violently a transparent ruse to hide his emotion.
