Ever since I can remember, my summers have been filled with them; and in the days when I sat in my own perambulator and they were three times as tall as I was, I well recollect a certain waving hedge of them in the garden of my childhood, and how I stared up longingly at the flowers so far beyond my reach, inaccessibly tossing against the sky.

She held out the basket. In the bottom reposed two fat cookies and a big apple whose ruddy cheeks had a rival in hers at the moment. "My eyes were bigger than my appetite. Would you care for them?" "Thank you, Miss Summers," he said politely, "but I never eat at noon." "I wish you would," she insisted. "If you don't, they they'll spoil." "By to-morrow? Hardly, I should think.

This year must pass without an interview; the summer has been foolishly lost, like many other of my summers and winters. I hardly saw a green field, but staid in town to work, without working much. 'Mr. Thrale's loss of health has lost him the election; he is now going to Brighthelmston, and expects me to go with him; and how long I shall stay, I cannot tell.

Summers, delivering rapid orders on deck, turned with an expression of annoyance to see his faithful man servant, Catin, out of breath and excited, rushing toward the boat. Summers ordered the vessel stopped. It had moved not more than stepping distance from the pier and in a moment Catin was beside his master on the deck. "She told me it must " he paused, gasping for breath.

The mere sight of the modern wall had been too much for this lady the lilacs and the leaves in the lane mercifully hid the palace and after five and thirty peaceful summers she had moved out, and let the cottage.

There is one thing you must do, Summers, and that is, keep a constant lookout, from the time I leave you until I turn up again, and if you observe anything unusual inshore, leading you to suppose I am attempting to get out, do the best you can to help me.

"They played it beautifully at the Point two summers ago." "I ah, yes, it's a charming composition charming, though I don't recall it's name just now." "This? why it's one of Godfrey's 'The Hilda, don't you know? I'm sure you waltz, major." "I ah, used to, yes.

On hearing his name mentioned, Poker gently opened his right eye, but did not move. Dumps, on the contrary, lay as if he heard not the base aspersion on his character. "What'll ye bet it was Dumps as did it?" cried Davie Summers, who passed at the moment with a dish of some sort of edible towards the galley or cooking-house on deck.
