"I tell thee he went outside the Lido that very hour, or " "Pietrello?" "He was brought up by the oar of Giorgio, for both of us were active in saving the cushions and other valuables." "Could'st thou do nothing for the poor Roman? Ill-luck may follow that brig on account of his death!" "Ill-luck follow her, say I, till she lays her bones on some rock that is harder than the heart of her padrone.

Pericles drove with him an hour on the road, and returned in glee, to find Vittoria and Laura seated in their carriage, and Luigi scuffling with Beppo. "Padrone, see how I assist you," cried Luigi. Upon this Beppo instantly made a swan's neck of his body and trumpeted: "A sally from the fortress for forage." "Whip! whip!"

"Niente!" the boy replied, doggedly. "Well, but then" she laughed "why shouldn't the padrone be a few minutes late? It would be absurd to go down. You might miss him on the way." Gaspare said nothing. He stood there with his arms hanging and the ugly look still on his face. "Mightn't you? Mightn't you, Gaspare, if he came up by Marechiaro?" "Si, signora." "Well, then "

We were thus enjoying ourselves, if enjoyment it could be called, when, looking along the channel in the direction we had come, I caught sight of the bow of a canoe just rounding a point. "On board, on board!" shouted the padrone, or captain; and the men, jumping up, tumbled the cooking things, pots and pans, into the boat Tim following with our breakfast set, which he had just before packed up.

"I begin to see into the nature of the trade," returned the pliant padrone, placing a finger on the side of his nose. "I will discourse the woman by the hour about the flavor of the liquor, or, if thou wilt, of her own beauty; but to squeeze a drop of anything better than the water of the Lagunes out of the ribs of the felucca, would be a miracle worthy of San Teodoro."

Though he had wandered about, singing and playing, for two hours, Phil had not yet received a penny. This made him somewhat uneasy, for he knew that at night he must carry home a satisfactory sum to the padrone, or he would be brutally beaten; and poor Phil knew from sad experience that this hard taskmaster had no mercy in such cases.

It was followed by a shriek of pain and terror. "What are you howling at?" muttered the padrone, between his teeth. "I will whip you the harder." Giacomo would have been less able to bear the cruel punishment than Phil if he had been well, but being sick, it was all the more terrible to him. The second blow likewise was followed by a shriek of anguish.

As he looked, swift and short as was his glance, his amazement died away. Narcissus saw himself in the stream. Maurice saw, or believed he saw, his heart's image, trembling perhaps and indistinct, far down in the passion of Gaspare. So could he have been with a padrone had fate made his situation in life a different one. So could he have felt had something been concealed from him.

"No, no, signore, non basta! I can fish all night. Once the wine has warmed me, I can " "But I want to try it." "Oh, signore, what would the signora say? You are a stranger. You will take cold, and then the signora will blame me and say I did not take proper care of my padrone." But Delarey was determined.
