Quatermain, is going to show you an orchid that is ten times finer than 'O. Pavo!" "Beg pardon, sir," answered Woodden, "but if Mr. Quatermain says that, he lies. It ain't in Nature; it don't bloom nowhere." I opened the case and revealed the golden Cypripedium. Woodden stared at it and rocked. Then he stared again and felt his head as though to make sure it was on his shoulders. Then he gasped.

Have you seen the new magnificent Pavo Spicifer at the Zoological Gardens, and do you grudge him his jewelled coronet and the azure splendor of his waistcoat? I like my Lord Mayor to have a gilt coach; my magnificent monarch to be surrounded by magnificent nobles: I huzzay respectfully when they pass in procession. It is good for Mr.

Pavo nigripennis. Payaguas Indians, thin legs and thick arms of the. Payan, Mr., on the proportion of the sexes in sheep.

Beside these worthies stood two trembling way worn mules with drooping heads, their long ears hanging down most disconsolately. The moment we came in sight, the skipper hailed us. "Why, I am hoarse with bawling, Don Ricardo, but here am I and el Doctor Pavo Real, in as sorry a plight as any two gentlemen need be.

And notwithstanding our entreaties, he did return as he came, and descending the tree, began apparently to argue with the little Medico, and to endeavour to persuade him to ascend, and make his escape as he himself had done; but it would not do. Pavo Real as brave a little man as ever was seen made many salaams and obeisances, but move he would not.

Certainly, however, he did not know that I had fallen in with Dr Pavo Real;" and the good natured fellow's heart melted, as he continued "Returned why, he may be drowned Cringle, take care little Reefpoint be not drowned."

When the bees feel this warmth they revive and get on their feet again, just as flies do after they have been apparently drowned. This should be done near the hive so that when the bees have come to themselves they may return home and to work." Of fish ponds XVII. Here Pavo returned and said: "You may weigh anchor now if you wish.

On attempting the ford two hours ago, blockheads as we were beg pardon, Don Pavo" the doctor bowed, and grinned like a baboon "we had nearly been drowned; indeed, we should have been drowned entirely, had we not brought up on this island of Barataria here. But how is the young lady? tell me that," said the excellent hearted fellow, even in the midst of his own danger.

"'Odontoglossum Pavo' is going for twenty-three hundred, only twenty-tree hundred," cried the auctioneer. "Any advance on twenty-three hundred? What? None? Then I must do my duty. One. Two. For the last time no advance? Three. Gone to Mr. Woodden, bidding for his principal, Mr. Somers." The hammer fell with a sharp tap, and at this moment my young friend sauntered into the room.

"In the name of all this company let me congratulate you on having become the owner of the matchless 'Odontoglossum Pavo' for what, under all the circumstances, I consider the quite moderate price of £2,300." Really that young man took it very well. He shivered slightly and turned a little pale, that is all. Woodden rocked to and fro like a tree about to fall.
