Bellairs undressed her, and Ethel stood watching, till the young head, under the load of sorrow, so new to it, was laid on the pillow. Bellairs asked her if she would have a light. "No, no, thank you the dark and alone. Good-night," said Meta. Ethel went back to the sitting-room, where her father was standing at the window, looking out into the night.

Meta had whispered something to her governess, who smiled, and advanced to Norman. "Meta wishes to know if your sister would like to have a few flowers?" said she.

Meta Rivers always said that fine weather came at her call, and so it did glowing sunshine streaming over the shaven turf, and penetrating even the solid masses of the great cedar. The carriage was sent for the Misses May, and at two o'clock they arrived.

"'To him that hath, shall be given," the old lady quoted. "Miss Kilner, I'm afraid you find me very wearisome, my dear. You wanted to hear about Meta Neale's life in this world, and I am trying to talk about her life in the next. Forgive a foolish old woman, who sits and dreams over her fire." It was pleasant to see the look in Andrew's eyes when his mother called herself a foolish old woman.

He explored Frobisher's Strait and took possession of the land called Meta Incognita in the name of the queen.

By degrees it was advanced toward the east,* the western extremity being found to the south of the mouth of the Orinoco. This great river is represented as running from its delta as far as beyond the Meta, from south to north, like the river Magdalena.
