The young man, as he now was, had come to Perros on the chance of finding them and went straight to the house in which they used to stay. He first saw the old man; and then Christine entered, carrying the tea-tray. She flushed at the sight of Raoul, who went up to her and kissed her. She asked him a few questions, performed her duties as hostess prettily, took up the tray again and left the room.

But now I rejoice to see you more tranquil. Here is the beginning and the middle and the end of the matter: your marriage is my affair, and I shall do as I like about it." She searched his face; before his steady look her colour slowly died. M. Étienne, whether by accident or design, knocked his tray of jewels off the table. Murmuring profuse apologies, he dropped on his knees to grope for them.

"What's this?" He took up another and paused paused while his face grew old.... A third he took from another tray and touched it to his tongue.... A fourth from the third tray.... A fifth.... Then his fist flew up and fell on the edges of two trays so that the contents shot up like a spray in sunshine and scattered over the room. In a strangled voice he yelled "Paste, by God! We're tricked!"

We always calculate to set a good meal, and we're allowed to; but we don't never calculate to live by it and we've no dispensary. There's only my husband and me, and there's a plenty for more than us." Preston had handed the tray to Sam to carry in, and as soon as he could get a chance bade good morning, and went forward with Daisy.

I dare say you have frequently seen the Cluniac Priory of St. Ambrose at Brindleford?" Mike, who would not have recognized a Cluniac Priory if you had handed him one on a tray, said he had not. "Dear me! You have missed an opportunity which I should have been glad to have.

She's just asked me for some milk toast and I was dreading to take it to her, but this will make everything different. Don't worry yet, aunt Jane, for perhaps it won't be as bad as you think." So when she carried the toast to her aunt a little later, it was in the best gilt-edged china bowl, with a fringed napkin on the tray and a sprig of geranium lying across the salt cellar.

"Take them right along, Ailly," said the man next to him. "Why don't you begin at the top where Potter's waiting?" Then Courthorne looked around and for a moment; set his lips tight, while the girl would have dropped the tray had he not stretched out a hand and seized it. A dark flush swept into her face and then as suddenly faded out of it, leaving her very pale.

"Not from you, not from you," he said, in a low tone, "but I'm very weak, and the light of that diamond is too strong for me yet." "Forgive me," she said, in a tone of deep reproach; "I did not think." "No, forgive me. Please leave me now, and remember in charity how weak I am." She put the tray down and hastened from the room. He ate no supper that night, neither did she.

"My master's a law-cove, and he'll 'ave y' up before the beak." "You answer my questions," said Hurd, sternly, "or you'll get another clout. You know who I am well enough. Make a clean breast of it, you imp, or I'll lock you up." "If I make a clean breast will you let me cut?" asked Tray, beginning to whimper, but with a cunning gleam in his eyes. "I'll see, when I know what you have to say."

After seeing the children, they sat down, alone now, in the drawing room, to coffee. Anna took the tray, and then pushed it away from her. "Dolly," she said, "he has told me." Dolly looked coldly at Anna; she was waiting now for phrases of conventional sympathy, but Anna said nothing of the sort.
