She stopped short, for the woman was in the room. "Pauline, go yourself to Baudran's, and ask why my hat has not yet been sent." Then the Countess reseated herself and scrutinized her mother. The Marquise, with a swelling heart and dry eyes, in painful agitation, which none but a mother can fully understand, began to open Moina's eyes to the risk that she was running.

Huntingdon reseated himself as the door closed behind her, and the lamplight showed a sinister smile writhing over his dark features. He sat there, staring out into the starry night, and seeing by the shimmer of the setting moon only the graceful form and lovely face of Amy Aubrey, as she had appeared to him in other days.

Captain Frank and several of us rose expecting to take the hint of our employer, when our good intentions were arrested by a query from Dan Happersett, "Did any of you ever walk down a wild horse?" None of us had, and we turned back and reseated ourselves in the group. "I had a little whirl of it once when I was a youngster," said Dan, "except we didn't walk.

I took up the note and put it in my pocket; why, I can't say.

Nancy bowed gravely to the officers who made way for her, and, seating herself, she toyed with the pen a moment.
