Ogilvie very well. Mr. Lawrence called to them from behind to suggest that the new row of greenhouses was an immense improvement, and that they had cost over a thousand pounds to build. Lady Falconer politely turned to look back, and then found herself rather determinedly appropriated by the lawyer. 'I always understood, he said, 'that Mrs.

"Shut up, I can't stand this," cried Jock, chiefly from force of habit, for it was a tacit agreement among the elder brothers that Armine must not be suffered to "be cocky and humbug," by which they meant no implication on his sincerity, but that they did not choose to hear remonstrances or appeals to higher motives, and this had made him very reticent with all except his sister Barbara and Miss Ogilvie, but he now persisted.

But it was surely some charitable thing; and how could he doubt that Miss White would immediately respond to such an appeal? "I should think that she would," said he, with a little hesitation; but at this moment some other claimant came forward, and he turned away to seek young Ogilvie once more. "Ogilvie," said he, "who is that lady in the green satin?" "The Duchess of Wexford."

Mrs. Lionel Ogilvie was indignant at the news of Colonel Ogilvie's marriage. Being a very wise woman she would probably in time have controlled her temper, and by a little judicious management she might have secured a considerable fortune for herself and her children.

I only remarked that Lieutenant Ogilvie, who seemed to me a bonnie boy, did not look as if he were a very formidable warrior; and you answered with some dark saying what was it? that nobody could tell what sword was in a scabbard until it was drawn?" "Oh," said he, laughing somewhat nervously, "you forget: I was talking to the Duchess of Devonshire."

"Then it is your present, Flora?" "If you like better to call it so, my dear. I find Norman Ogilvie is going abroad in a few months. I think we ought to ask him here on his way." "Flora, I wish you would not talk about such things!" "Do you really and truly, Ethel?" "Certainly not, at such a time as this," said Ethel. Flora was checked a little, and sat down to write to Marjorie Ogilvie.

"If we dinna, and I get back at a', which is dootfu', I shall gae back wi' barely a dozen loons to my tail, an' the Cawmbells, be damned to every man o' the name, will ride on my back for the rest of my days." "Ye're in the right of it, Strowan," said my Lord Ogilvie. "There's too few of us for this work, but a little peat will boil a little pot. Let us gang back and raddle the Glasgow bodies.

Ogilvie been giving an invitation to tea in a barn it is probable that her manner would have been as distant, as casual, and as superb as when she suggested, with a queer sort of diffidence, that people might care to see the famous galleries and gardens of her magnificent house.

The getting up of a snipe interrupted these speculations; Ogilvie blazed away, missing with both barrels; Macleod, who had been patiently waiting to see the effect of the shots, then put up his gun, and presently the bird came tumbling down, some fifty yards off. "You haven't warmed to it yet," Macleod said, charitably. "The first half hour after luncheon a man always shoots badly."

"Now," said Macleod's companion, "are you tired?" "Tired? I have done nothing all day." "Shall we get into a hansom and drive along to Lady Beauregard's?" "Certainly, if you like. I suppose they won't throw you over again?" "Oh no," said Mr. Ogilvie, as he once more adventured his person in a cab.
