With greater promptitude than he had shown yet, he reckoned up his money and found he had two shillings and threepence at his command; there was his knife which might sell for a shilling, and there was the silver watch his Aunt Alethea had given him shortly before she died. The carriage had been gone now a full quarter of an hour, and it must have got some distance ahead, but he would do his best to catch it up, and there were short cuts which would perhaps give him a chance. He was off at once, and from the top of the hill just past the Rectory paddock he could see the carriage, looking very small, on a bit of road which showed perhaps a mile and a half in front of him. 鈥淢a tante,鈥?said F茅lise demurely, after a pause during which her aunt took up her work again. 鈥淚f you would teach me how to embroider, perhaps I might learn to be useful in my future home.鈥? That which came afterwards had seemed one long and lurid dream鈥攁 dream of fair weather and foul; of peril and despair; of passionate, all-conquering love. 北京赛车自动投注机器人 鈥淢a tante,鈥?said F茅lise demurely, after a pause during which her aunt took up her work again. 鈥淚f you would teach me how to embroider, perhaps I might learn to be useful in my future home.鈥? 鈥楢h, there is poor Mrs Etheridge,鈥?she said. 鈥楽he will get very hot and dusty before she reaches home. I would offer her a lift, but it would make such a crush for us all. And there is poor Mr Moulton. How he limps! I noticed that when he was handing the other offertory plate. He has a long walk before him too, has he not? But we cannot drive everybody home. It is pleasant{10} driving to-day: the thin rug keeps off the dust, and I want no other covering. It is neither too hot nor too cold, just what I like. But it looks threatening over there. I should not wonder if poor Mrs Etheridge got a drenching before she reaches her little house. Her house is damp too: I have often noticed that, and to get hot and wet and sit in a damp house is the very way to get pneumonia. You are very silent, Alice.鈥? � � � LONG before Ernest reached the dining-room his ill-divining soul had told him that his sin had found him out. What head of a family ever sends for any of its members into the dining-room if his intentions are honourable? 鈥淎uvershaud鈥擜uverchat鈥攏on鈥攃鈥檈st bigrement difficile.鈥? Father Rodwell drew his chair nearer to her, and looked at her earnestly with his cordial, almost boyish smile. He was a remarkably young-looking man, a man upon whom[Pg 285] long years of toil in the dark places of the earth had exercised no wasting or withering influence. He had loved his work too well ever to feel the pressure of the burdens he carried. His gospel had been always a cheerful gospel, and he had helped to lighten sorrows, never to make them heavier. He was deeply interested in Isola, and had been watchful of all her changes of mood since their conversation in the shadow of the old Roman wall. He had seen her impressed by the history and traditions of the church, moved by the pathos of holy lives, touched almost to tears by sacred pictures, and he saw in her character and disposition a natural bent towards piety, exactly that receptive temperament which moves holy women to lives of self-abnegation and heroic endeavour. He had lent her some of those books which he loved best and read most himself, and he had talked with her of religion, careful not to say too much or with too strong an emphasis, and never by any word alluding to her revelation of past guilt. He wanted to win her to perfect trustfulness in him, to teach her to lean upon him in her helplessness; until the hour should come when she would let him lead her to her husband, in the self-abasement of the penitent sinner. Mrs Keeling paid no attention to this: she hardly heard. 鈥淐ome here, Jack, my boy,鈥?said Ernest, 鈥渉ere鈥檚 a shilling for you.鈥?The boy blushed and could hardly be got to come in spite of our previous blandishments; he had had pennies given him before, but shillings never. His father caught him good-naturedly by the ear and lugged him to us. 鈥淢a tante,鈥?said F茅lise demurely, after a pause during which her aunt took up her work again. 鈥淚f you would teach me how to embroider, perhaps I might learn to be useful in my future home.鈥? 鈥業 won鈥檛 keep you any longer, Mr Keeling,鈥?he{76} said. 鈥楢nd any words of thanks on my part are superfluous. May I just tell my committee that an anonymous donor has come forward, and that we can proceed with the work?鈥?
