She struggled to draw away, but his strong arms held her until breath came unsteadily; then, as again she tried to free herself, he held her off, gripping her hands. "Is there nothing to tell me, Mary?" "To tell you?" The long lashes shielding the awakened eyes quivered. He bent closer to hear her. "What do you want me to tell you?" "That you love me." His faced whitened.

Dacy's eyelids quivered several times, then slowly opened, whereat the crowd gave a mad cry of joy and the scouts had all they could do to keep them from pressing closer. But one man did break through the circle of guards and the lads let him pass. He was Mr. Herrick.

The fine, thin edges of it quivered and twitched and curled. You would have said the very down was sensitive to her thought's secret and iniquitous play. She had brought her face close to Nicky's; and it was as if her mouth had eyes in it to see if there were guile in him. "Are you a little humbug?" she said. Nicky loved his mother's face.

His arm quivered still under the thrill of Jean's fingers.

We all gasped for breath.

There was an angry gleam in Stephen Ryder's stern black eyes as he turned within, seized the tongs, and thrust a piece of iron among the coals, while Tobe, who had been asleep in the window at the back of the shop, rose reluctantly and plied the bellows. The heavy panting broke forth simultaneously with the red flare that quivered out into the dark night.
