was a babe.

He made him fond embrace. “Right proud of you am I brother. Proud too, that it is 杭州桑拿论坛 Launcelot, whose knight you shall be.”

Then Sir Gareth became knight. And as they made their way again into the great hall, the King beckoned to Sir Gareth.

“Are you still of a mind to take on yourself the first adventure that cometh. For here is one that promises a lengthy time in its 杭州哪里按摩比较好的 fulfillment.”


Before the new knight could make answer, Sir Gawaine spoke.

“This sire, is Gareth, my youngest brother. Worthy of knighthood has he proven so far as strength and skill go.”

“Then are we right proud to have you among us, nephew. And we pray that you will add lustre to your honored name and to the Round Table as well.”

“That, I warrant, he will,” vouchsafed Sir Launcelot. “Perchance, it seemeth a wise thing to have Sir Kay feed all our knights in prospect the same fat broth he has furnished Gareth.”

“As to the adventure,” 杭州养生按摩会所the King returned. “There came but a little while ago a maiden, Linet, by name, who craves that we send a knight to succor her sister, the fair Dame Lyoness who is besieged in her castle by the Knight of the Red Lawns.”

“Good herald,” the King continued, “bring you the lady, Linet before us.”


Into the great hall came a maiden fair. To her the king addressed himself.

“My Lady Linet, and it please you, pray tell us of what manner of siege this knight holds against your sister. If to you it seems of avail, we shall be glad to send a goodly number of our knights and yeomen, too, to raise this siege.”

“Nay sire, that I deem not necessary. Only, since I have heard that the knights of the Round Table are the bravest and best in all Britain, I have come to you that you send one of these to battle with the Knight of the Red Lawns. A stout knight is he, many have come to rescue the fair lady who is my sister but the way is perilous and he hath seven men’s strength. So that I pray you to send the best and bravest knight who is here.”
“My Lady, I Am Your Loyal Knight”

“We would gladly heed your request, good lady. Nor do we care what manner of knight this is, if Sir Launcelot or Sir Tristram or any one of ten or twelve more were to go to your fair sister’s rescue. But we have made promise that the next adventure, which this is, was to be taken up by Sir Gareth and unless he forego this, there is naught else left for us to do. What say you, Gareth?”

“I beg you, sire, that you permit me to carry out this adventure. I shall do my utmost to bring it to successful conclusion.” So did Gareth reply.

“And I for one, sire, doubt not, that if the adventure 杭州按摩地址 can be carried out successfully, he will do so. For he is as brave and stout a knight as is among us,” added Sir Launcelot.

“Yet is he so young,” said the maiden as she sighed. “I doubt that any of you know how powerful is the knight he must oppose.”

“Yet will he go,” Arthur now decided. “Make you your plans Gareth. The way seems long and I doubt not, you will be disposed to continue on adventure’s course, if this should be carried to successful

” cried a gruff voice.

“Hello, you!” shouted Dick. “Here I am.”


“Well, what do you want?” asked the captain of the fishing boat, peering out into the darkness and 杭州spa水疗 trying to discover whence the hail came.

“Is civilized folks human enough to lend a sufferin’ feller-man a helpin’ hand?” asked Dick, who after his recent experience had some serious doubts on this point.

This question was not immediately answered, for the skipper did not quite understand it. He held a consultation with one of his men and then called out—

“If you want help, pull this way. I’ve got no boat to send out after you!”

Dick was pulling that way with all his might, and guided by the lanterns


that were held over the side, at last reached the boat,杭州高端男士休闲会所 which sat so low in the water that he could lay hold of her rail. The astonishment of her crew as they hauled aboard a man who carried all his wearing apparel around his neck, was unbounded. They gave him time to put on his clothes and then directed him to the captain who was waiting 杭州丝袜qqto see him.


The very first question that gentleman propounded to him aroused a thousand fears in Dick’s mind. The skipper wanted to know where he came from, and how he happened to be out there in the water, five miles from land; and the trapper, fearful that if he told the truth and acknowledged himself to be a deserter, the captain might follow the Tycoon and compel him to go aboard of her again, whether he wanted to or not, did something he had never done before—he made up a story all out of his own head, as he told Uncle Dick Gaylord, and 杭州夜网怎么充值 queer work he made of it. He entered into the particulars of a fearful shipwreck that had just occurred. The waves were as high as the Rocky Mountains, he said, the wind blew so hard that the sailors had to stop all work and hold their hair on (this was a quotation from one of the stories the trapper had heard in the forecastle of the Stranger); his ship was capsized no less than three times, always coming right side up again, and doing it so quickly that she did not even wet her sails or her deck, and none of the crew had a chance to drop off into the water 杭州个人丝袜上门 (another[93] quotation); but finally the wind came in such furious gusts that it took the masts right out by the roots (still another quotation), and the ship filled and went down like lead. The trapper said that all this happened not five minutes before, and that set the crew of 杭州洗浴娱乐休闲场所 the fishing-boat into a roar of laughter, for they had been out all day, and knew there had scarcely been wind enough to raise any white caps. The captain used some hard words, and called Dick anything but a truthful man; but the latter affirmed so solemnly that it was all so, that the skipper thought that perhaps something had happened after all, and spent a long time in cruising about the place where Dick had been picked up.

This delay added to the trapper’s fears. What if the Tycoon should come back in search of him? Alarmed by the thought, he labored hard 浙江杭州龙凤 to convince the captain that every soul on board the wrecked ship, except himself, had gone down with he



ay called on his daughter and laid the matter before her.

“I am not surprised,” said Sophia. “Of course Mrs. Tarbox married you for your money. She expects you will leave her a good slice of your estate.”

“She’ll be disappointed,” said Seth angrily.

319“I don’t know about that. Have you made a will?”

“No; 杭州水疗哪里好 why should I? You don’t expect I’m going to die right off, do you?”

“No; but still, life is uncertain. If you don’t leave a will, the law will give her something.”

“Perhaps I shall live longer than she does.”

“Perhaps so, but she is twenty years younger than you. When she gets your money, she and her boy will have fine times.”

“Can’t that be prevented?” asked Seth.

“There is one way.杭州哪里做spa比较嘿嘿 ”

“What is that?”

“I hardly like to tell.”

“Out with it, Sophia!”

“If you should make me a deed of gift of the property—at any rate, of the real estate—she couldn’t do anything.”

“But I don’t want to give the farm away.”

“Oh, it would only be a mere form. Things would go on just the same as before. But it would put a spoke in your wife’s wheel. Of course, pa, you know that I 320wouldn’t 杭州家庭式个人保健 take any advantage of what you did. It makes me laugh, 杭州养生会所哪家服务好though, to think how you would come up with that mercenary woman.”

“Just so,” chuckled Seth. “Well, I’ll think of it.”

“That’s the first step,” reflected Mrs. Bartlett. “Now I know how to work on pa’s feelings, it won’t be long before he’ll adopt my plan.”

From that time Sophia lost no opportunity to enlarge to her father on his wife’s expectations of profiting by his death, till at 杭州水会最好的是哪家 last she accomplished her purpose. One day she and her father called at a lawyer’s office, and the deed of gift was made out, and Mrs. Bartlett took charge of the document.

“Mrs. Tarbox won’t know anything of this,” she said. “We’ll keep it secret, pa.”

“Yes, we’ll keep it secret.”

“If she knew, you’d find it hard to get as much work out of her.”

“That’s so!” chuckled Seth.

He would not 杭州哪里按摩比较好的 have felt as well pleased had he known what a power he had put 杭州洗浴按摩全套是什么 into the hands of his daughter.

321We will now reproduce the


letter which Grant received from his mother. After expressing the hope that he was in good health, and had something to do, she went on:

I am very unpleasantly situated at present. Grant. A week ago Mr. Tarbox fell from a scaffold in the barn, and broke his leg. His daughter, Mrs. Bartlett, on hearing of it, came to the 杭州桑拿会所 house with Rodney, and has taken possession of the sick chamber. I am kept out of it, though his wife. I won’t pretend that it hurts my feelings, but I don’t like to be treated as a servant in the house of which I ought to be the mistress. Mrs. Bartlett treats me with very little respect, and I have reason to think that she means to influence Mr. Tarbox to leave all his property to her. This 杭州按摩信息网 would be a very poor return for all I have done since I married him. As you know, it was chiefly on your account that I did so. If you w

y; rhetoric, poetry and music, besides English, 杭州桑拿按摩全套地址 her maternal tongue, she spoke and wrote to perfection Greek, Latin, French, Italian and Spanish; but while Elizabeth excelled Mary on this point, in her turn Mary was more beautiful, 杭州哪些洗浴有活 and above all more attractive, than her rival. Elizabeth had, it is true, a majestic and agreeable 杭州夜网桑拿体验论坛 appearance, bright quick eyes, a dazzlingly white complexion; but she had red hair, a large foot,—[Elizabeth bestowed a pair of her shoes on the University of Oxford; their size would point to their being those of a man of average stature.]—and a powerful hand, while Mary, on the contrary, with her beautiful ashy-fair hair,—[Several historians assert that Mary Stuart had black hair; but Brantome, who had seen it, since, as we have said, he accompanied her to Scotland, affirms that it was fair. And, so saying, he (the executioner) took off her headdress, in 杭州足浴按摩论坛 a contemptuous manner, to display her hair already white, that while alive, however, she feared not to show, nor yet to twist and frizz as in the days when it was so beautiful and so fair.]—her noble open forehead, eyebrows which could be only blamed for being so regularly arched 杭州洗浴24小时 that they looked as if drawn by a pencil, eyes continually beaming with the witchery of fire, a nose of perfect Grecian outline, a mouth so ruby red and gracious that it seemed that, as a flower opens but to let its perfume escape, so it could not open but to give passage to gentle words, with a neck white and graceful as a swan’s, hands of alabaster, with a form like a goddess’s and a foot like a child’s, Mary was a harmony in which the most ardent enthusiast for sculptured form could have found nothing to reproach.

This was indeed Mary’s great and real 杭州桑拿哪里最好论坛 crime: one single imperfection in face or figure, and she would not have died upon the scaffold. Besides, to Elizabeth, who had never seen her, and who consequently could only judge by hearsay, this beauty was a great cause of uneasiness and of jealousy, which she could not even disguise, and which showed itself unceasingly in eager questions. One day when she was chatting with James Melville about his mission to her court, Mary’s offer to be guided by Elizabeth in her choice of a husband,—a choice which the queen of England had seemed at first to wish to see fixed on the Earl of Leicester,—she led the Scotch ambassador into a cabinet, where she showed him several portraits with labels in her own handwriting: the first was one of the Earl of Leicester. As this nobleman was precisely the suitor chosen by Elizabeth, Melville asked the queen 杭州保健养生按摩 to give it him to show to his mistress; but Elizabeth refused, saying that it was the only one she had. Melville then replied, smiling, that being in possession of the original she might well part with


the copy; but Elizabeth would on no account consent. This little discussion ended, she showed him the portrait of Mary Stuart, which she kissed very tenderly, expressing to Melville a great wish to see his mistress. “That is very easy, madam,” he replied: “keep your room, on the pretext that you are indisposed,
