He made the moody Nemours comprehend that, in truth, he had no reason to complain of an inevitable liaison, "qui ne lui devoit pas être suspecte, puisqu'on voulait lui en rendre compte, et ne s'en servir que pour lui donner la principale part aux affaires." At the same time, "he urged M. le Prince to occupy himself with Madame de Châtillon, and to give her in freehold the estate of Merlon."

"Don't tell me that you've been tormenting her again." "Certainly; we always do at the beginning of term, though we get tired of it after a while. We had verbs this morning with lots of r's in them accourir and servir and reconnaître so I winked to Althea and Maggie and we had a dandy time. It saves lots of work," she added reflectively.

I have reason to believe, although the fact has not been authoritatively stated by naturalists, that the stomach of the elephant will be found to include a section analogous to that possessed by some of the ruminants, calculated to contain a supply of water as a provision against emergencies. The fact of his being enabled to retain a quantity of water and discharge it at pleasure has been long known to every observer of the habits of the animal; but the proboscis has always been supposed to be "his water-reservoir," and the theory of an internal receptacle has not been discussed.
