Silvia despised this Thurio, for he had none of the fine sense and excellent qualities of Valentine. These two rivals, Thurio and Valentine, were one day on a visit to Silvia, and Valentine was entertaining Silvia with turning everything Thurio said into ridicule, when the duke himself entered the room and told Valentine the welcome news of his friend Proteus's arrival.

Just then the gong sounded, and after luncheon while I was comfortably tipped back in a chair, my feet on the veranda rail, seeing in the smoke from my pipe dream visions of Polydoreless days, a faint cry from Silvia brought me back to earth. "Lucien, look!" I looked. My chair came down to all fours and my feet slipped from the rail. Ptolemy's Tale

In a short time, Jack and Silvia were absorbed in their respective professions, but never failing in their duty to the great world movement that was making real the prophecy of England's poetic seer: "We two will serve them both in aiding her Will clear away the parasitic forms That seem to keep her up but drag her down Will leave her space to burgeon out of all Within her let her make herself her own To give or keep, to live and learn and be All that not harms distinctive womanhood."

Silvia looked at the roof window and with a stifled shriek of terror turned and fled up the hill, Rob chivalrously pursuing her. Beth was pale, but game. "What can it be, Lucien?" she whispered. "Do we dare go in to see?" "I wouldn't, Beth," I vetoed quickly. "Maybe some lunatic or half-witted person has taken up abode here." "Lucien!" called Rob peremptorily. I turned quickly.

I have a little plan which I don't dare whisper to you lest their long-range ears get in their work. We are just about to start for a walk." "In this pouring rain!" protested Silvia. "We like the rain," he replied, "and we are not going far." Pythagoras entered the room just then and looked astounded and disappointed when he saw Beth and Rob departing.

Silvia did not think that her good conduct was a merit, for she knew that she was virtuous only because her self-love compelled her to be so, and she never exhibited any pride or assumed any superiority towards her theatrical sisters, although, satisfied to shine by their talent or their beauty, they cared little about rendering themselves conspicuous by their virtue.

I thought that the best plan would be to find some influential lady who would consent to present Mdlle. Vesian to M. d'Argenson, and I knew that in the mean time I could support her. I begged Silvia to mention the matter to Madame de Montconseil, who had very great influence with the secretary of war. She promised to do so, but she wished to be acquainted with the young girl.

"He has been very good to you, hasn't he?" said Silvia absently, thinking of him once more as she had seen him first, as he bent over the child, the sleeves rolled back from his powerful white arms while he bathed the matted locks and set the broken leg. "He has that," said the woman laconically. "I'm glad to have Allie go with you, for she would miss him; he said he wouldn't be back for a week.

When she went to that lady with the ring she was most glad to find that Silvia utterly rejected the suit of Proteus; and Julia or the page Sebastian, as she was called, entered into conversation with Silvia about Proteus's first love, the forsaken Lady Julia.

Never was an actress found who could replace her, and to find one it would be necessary that she should unite in herself all the perfections which Silvia possessed for the difficult profession of the stage: action, voice, intelligence, wit, countenance, manners, and a deep knowledge of the human heart.
