I walked out of the cabin as he spoke, and the man he referred to came up to me at once. "Beg pardon, sir," said he, civilly, touching his forelock in salute. "Mr Vernon, sir, I believe?" "Yes," I replied, rather anxious to learn what was wanted of me, "that is my name." "Cap'en Farmer presents his compliments, sir, and requests the pleasure of your company to dinner this evening."

A King of England was undoubtedly entitled to such a mark of respect; but France did not recognise William as King of England. At last Boufflers consented to perform the salute without marking for which of the two princes it was intended. He lowered his sword. William alone acknowledged the compliment. A short conversation followed.

I had had such a happy time on the ship that as we were steaming off I kissed my hand to her, whereupon Treacle, who was standing at the top of the companion, taking the compliment to himself, returned the salute with affectionate interest, which sent Martin and me into our last wild shriek of laughter.

"That's all right, then. That was a royal salute in your honor. Kirkland had that to do. He's the foreman of A opening. I am awfully sorry about this rain it spoils everything." "I hope it hasn't spoiled our breakfast," said Mr. Langham. "We haven't eaten anything this morning, because we wanted a change of diet, and the captain told us we should be on shore before now."

Covering them with the rifle which he carried, he walked backward a distance of about forty yards and then, with a mocking salute, disappeared. Bloodhounds were next employed, but the man swam and waded streams and doubled back on his own trail till men and dogs were alike baffled.

Two young dragoon officers had approached during the fervid allocution, and after the salute to their superior, caught up chairs and stamped them down, thereupon calling for the loan of anybody's cigar-case.

No one here will be surprised if I deny him my door; he will not be suffered to address my children, nor even to salute my wife: as for myself, I make so much exception for a brother that he may speak to me. I should lose my pleasure else," says my lord, rubbing his palms. Presently he bethought himself, and set men off running, with billets, to summon the magnates of the province.

The servant told us that they were on their way to the house of Professor A , who was unpopular with them I knew not why to salute him with their Pereat, or college damnation. The cry of some hundred students grew plainer and plainer. 'Out with lights! was called, and just then we heard the panes of glass clatter when the warning was not quickly enough complied with.

It required but a few minutes for the girl to change to her riding clothes, and when she ran down into the court she found her horse awaiting her in the hands of her groom, while close by two mounted troopers raised their hands to their helmets in salute. A moment later the three clattered over the drawbridge and along the road that leads toward Lustadt.

And, besides, he thanked Captain Sol for selling them the things. Then he went away. Then Captain Sol had the sailors fix the sails so that the ship would go ahead, and he had a sailor stand at the flag halliards and dip the flag for a salute to the English ships. And the Industry sailed away from those English ships towards Gibraltar, and pretty soon the ships were out of sight. And that's all.
