He rents a house in a nearby village and takes care of Alice, giving her an education and teaching her how to play music, all the time living with her under the false name of Butler. John Fitzalan, her grandson, succeeded as sixth earl of Arundel inand Thomas, son and heir of William, ninth earl, sat in parliament during his father's life, from toas Baron Maltravers. He heard her step in the conservatory—paused, irresolute, and at length joined her. This book presents a very educative and very helpful meaning in everyday life. The original conception of Alice is taken from real life—from a person I never saw but twice, and then she was no longer young—but whose history made on me a deep impression. Simcox stared.

Dugdale confuses father and son. She rose, pale and trembling—approached Maltravers and laid her hand gently on his arm. He adopted, therefore, the common name of Butler; which, indeed, belonged to one of his maternal connections, and by that name alone was he known in the neighbourhood and to Alice. But looking on her eyes, which were fixed earnestly on his, there was so much artlessness in their soft, unconscious gaze, that he saw she was wholly ignorant of the interpretation that might be put upon so candid a confession.

I therefore propose to place you in some respectable family, where you will have more comfort and a higher station than you have here.

The next day he hired a cottage in the neighbourhood, which was one of those pretty thatched edifices, with verandas and monthly roses, a conservatory and a lawn, which justify the English proverb about a cottage and love.

And while my boat paused,and I caught something of the enthusiasm of theserenaders, the boatman touched me, and,pointing to a part of the lake on which the settingsun shed its rosiest smile, he said, "There, Signor,was drowned one of your countrymen 'bellissimouomo!

Alice looked up at him with grave respect. WE are apt to connect the voice of Conscience with the stillness of midnight. And you, my dear Alice, are now sufficiently advanced to receive better instruction than I or Mr. From these walks he would return home at dusk, take his simple meal, rhyme or read away the long evenings with such alternation as music or the dreamy thoughts of a young man with gay life before him could afford.

Templeton, who may be a materialistic hypocrite but whose actions are all the same motivated by the desire to love and to be loved in return. But he amused himself, notwithstanding. But, above all things, he was most interested in any display of human passions or affections; he loved to see the true colours of the heart, where they are most transparent—in the uneducated and poor—for he was something of an optimist, and had a hearty faith in the loveliness of our nature.

With this faithful ally he awaited Alice in the little walk that circled the lawn, amidst shrubs and evergreens. Has a man gambled away his all, or shot his friend in a duel—has he committed a crime or incurred a laugh—it is the next morning, when the irretrievable Past rises before him like a spectre; then doth the churchyard of memory yield up its grisly dead—then is the witching hour when the foul fiend within us can Ernest Maltravers book tempt perhaps, but most torment.

Mary, daughter of the twelfth earl, carried the title to Philip Howard, fourth duke of Norfolk. All the associations and memories of that beloved spot rushed upon her—she gasped for breath,—tottered,—and fell to the ground insensible.

Edward I and II, i. And Maltravers was encouraged by her quickness in music to attempt such instruction in other studies as conversation could afford.

He listened, and recognised, with surprise, words of his own, which he had lately set to music, and was sufficiently pleased with to sing nightly. Maltravers, meanwhile, had gone in and lighted his meerschaum, for it was his great inspirer whenever his thoughts were perplexed, or he felt his usual fluency likely to fail him, and such was the case now.
