"Yes, Maggie," said Philip, vehemently; "and you are shutting yourself up in a narrow, self-delusive fanaticism, which is only a way of escaping pain by starving into dulness all the highest powers of your nature.

"Maggie, where is your mistress's room?" "This is Mis' 'Liza's room, sir." "Nonsense! Miss 'Liza is only here on a visit this is your mistress. Where is her room, hey?" "Oh stop, Preston!" I begged him. "I am not mistress." "Yes, you are. I'll roast anybody who says you ain't. Come along, and you shall choose which room you will have; and if it isn't ready they will get it ready. Come!"

"Oh, back again, Mr. Smith?" she greeted him, with studied unconcern. Mr. Smith shut the door and advanced determinedly. "Miss Maggie, I've got to face this thing out, of course.
