The chief himself, though ostensibly accepting my statement, has his own suspicions to the same purpose, and before dismissing them he shakes his finger menacingly at the sowars and significantly touches the hilt of his sword.

Then with sudden indignation she added: "But I'll never love Googly-Goo never, as long as I live!"

To him the young officer, briefly and in low tone, reports the result of his search. "I presume there is nothing else I can do just here, is there, colonel?" he asks. The colonel shakes his head. "Nothing that I can think of, unless you look through the halls and office." "We are going there. Shall I light you back to the street?" "Er ah no!

"Dear," said Miss Hunter, "but how delighted Mr. Beaumont seems; and how Mr. Palmer shakes Captain Walsingham's hand, as if he had known him these hundred years! What can make them so glad to see him? Do look at them, ma'am." "I see it all!" said Mrs. Beaumont, with an involuntary sigh. "But, dear Mrs.
