Bickford legally bound." "That may be; but if you don't treat him as he ought to be treated, he will run away, take my word for it." "If he does, he'll be brought back, take my word for that, Mrs. Bickford. I shall treat him as I think he deserves, but as to petting and pampering the young rascal I shall do nothing of the kind."

We are going together to Luscombe the day after to-morrow, Sunday; just write a line to his uncle to prepare him for Tom's visit, and send thither his clothes, as we shall walk, and steal forth unobserved betimes in the morning. Now go up and talk to him; he wants a mother's soothing and petting. He is a noble fellow at heart, and we shall be all proud of him some day or other."

He had "all the MONEY anybody ought to want," he said, when Adams urged him; and he could "start up this little glue side-line" at any time; the formula was safe in their two heads.

When the creature was quite overcome, one of the youths struck his heel into his horse's side and flung a noose over the head of the quarry, and drew it with them, gently petting it the way home to the palace.

It was an accommodating heart, for it came up smiling, when the petting Di got had satisfied her that she wasn't to be blamed for the fiasco. "I think flying must be a wonderful experience for any one whose heart is quite right," she consoled Captain March. "It's a pity, for the credit of the family, you didn't take Peggy up first."

"It is true," said Sibyl; "and I wonder Oh; please don't leave me standing here alone on the road.

She kissed Rosy as kindly as usual when Nelson had left the room, but it seemed to her that her kiss was very coldly returned. "You're not vexed with me for anything, are you, Rosy?" she could not help saying. "Vexed with you? No, I never said I was vexed with you," Rosy answered.
