"Look away to the glorious city my darling is almost there." "Yes, yes, I do, I am," came faintly up, and then with a glad cry of joy, which rang in their ears for many a day and night, Nina said, "You may lay me down, my Arthur boy, and take your arm away. There's a stronger one than yours around me now. The arm that Miggie told me of, and it will not let me down.

'Then I'll come. But I've got no things. He pushed up the trap-door. Driver, Bond Street. And get on to yourself, for goodness' sake! Hurry! 'You told me not to hurry, grumbled the cabby. 'And now I tell you to hustle. See? 'Shall you want me to call myself Belmont? Nina asked.

Girond came into the theatre, she was met by the same anxious, wondering question; and her reply was invariably the same. "Don't you think it very strange?" he asked of Estelle. "Nina said she would write to you or send you a message I suppose as soon as all her plans were made. I hope nothing has happened to her," he added, as a kind of timid expression of his own darker self-questionings.

Their parents cannot, or will not, pay to send them to school, and Jennet must receive some return for her labors, whatever they be." "I see it all," cried Nina with animation. "There must be a school in the village. Jennet shall be the teacher." "If this can be done, it will be a great blessing," said Blanche. "It shall be done. Let us go over to that sweet little cottage at once and see Jennet."

Besides in winter it is impossible to get them warm." "Then why," Nina spoke as though she had discovered an obviously simple solution, "don't you have the proper heating put in?

And don't you prefer electric light?"

"I never thought of the old masters as saints exactly. But come, Mademoiselle let us pretend in each of those chandeliers are burning a hundred wax candles.

"And you who were always so fond of pretty things, and flowers, and always so particular when we went to a restaurant to live with the Debernardis!"

Ida Tabor was outfaced, and she knew it. Her cheeks burned scarlet, and she was able to gasp only the feeblest response. "Thank you for your kind explanation!" she said, somewhat breathless, and with a bow.
