No token of misfortune came out of this peaceful encampment, no omen of disaster crossed the long lane of drowsy fires and huge amorous shadows. The sense of doom was in the girl's own heart, not in this deep cradle of the hills.

Nay, draw not Your hand away, Count Piccolimini! Octavio Max. Piccolomini! O savior names, and full of happy omen! Ne'er will her prosperous genius turn from Austria, While two such stars, with blessed influences Beaming protection, shine above her hosts. MAX. Heh! Noble minister! You miss your part. You come not here to act a panegyric.

She had, moreover, to be dragged out stern foremost an ill omen, the sailors thought and as she swung before the wind a passing drift of fog concealed her, for a moment, from the gaze of those on shore, who, from this, foretold things of evil.

Thou knowest how we gained that beauteous height, Where dwells the monarch of the sons of light, Thou knowest he declared us two to be The chosen servants of his ministry, Thou as his messenger, a sacred sign Of conquest, or with omen more benign, To give its due weight to the righteous cause, To express the verdict of Olympian laws.

I hailed it as a happy omen that the Christianity of our city was beginning to see that the Devil had tools which it might use to advantage, and was going to take them away from him. But so did not think others who turned their backs on the Association, and denounced it as encouraging gambling.

"Because I had resolved that nature should be my sole ally. Was not my kiss under the mistletoe a better way of awakening my sleeping beauty than a stab of jealousy?" "Yes, Webb, dear, patient Webb. The rainbow shield was a true omen, and I am sheltered indeed." Leonard had long since gone to the depot, and now the chimes of his returning bells announced that Burt and Gertrude were near.

Every one from far and near was present, quite without the formality of an invitation.
