七星彩12066

Early in 1876 Miss Wauton had written in the Society鈥檚 Report: 鈥業 think we may consider the Batala Mission now thoroughly established.鈥?This meant that about five Girls鈥?Schools had been opened for Hindu, Sikh, and Muhammadan scholars, under the superintendence of the Catechist鈥檚 wife, being from time to time visited by the Amritsar Missionary ladies. The children were taught elementary Christian truths; they learned to sing simple hymns; and books were given to them. The work,[246] however, was hardly more than begun, when A. L. O. E. decided to make Batala her home. One Native Catechist and his wife were there; one Batala man had been baptized; and a certain number of children had begun to learn a few simple truths. For the rest, Batala was 鈥榓 stronghold of bigoted Muhammadanism.鈥? Our hero would have been less joyous, perhaps, had he known Edith鈥檚 reason for thus appearing to favour him. With the native quick wittedness of a daughter of Eve, she had guessed already what was the matter with Herbert. A man who seeks to disguise his feelings in the presence of the woman he loves may flatter himself that he plays his part to perfection, but it is generally the flimsiest attempt even to ordinary feminine eyes, most of all to those of the beloved object. Edith had seen through him from the first. She knew that he was on the brink of a declaration, that he needed but the slightest encouragement to fall, metaphorically, even practically, at her[143] feet. It was better that he and she should come to an understanding; that he should realise, even at some pain to himself, as well as to her, that they could only be friends to each other, nothing more. � 七星彩12066 Our hero would have been less joyous, perhaps, had he known Edith鈥檚 reason for thus appearing to favour him.

As he walked slowly along the main street on which his step-father's house was situated, plunged in thought, he was called to himself by a slap on his shoulder. 鈥楾he rushing torrent bears along 鈥業 had a kind of intuitive feeling,鈥?she said, 鈥榯hat something might come to prevent the Convert from openly[226] confessing his Lord. I knew not how great the danger was.鈥? Mrs. Baynham was at heart a matchmaker, like most motherly women whom fate has left childless. She was very fond of Allegra, who was so much more companionable than Isola, so much more responsive to kindness and affection. As she sat on deck in the westering sunlight, somewhat comatose after a copious luncheon, Mrs. Baynham's[Pg 162] idea of helping Allegra took the form of a dinner-party which she had long been meditating, her modest return for numerous dinners which she had eaten at Glenaveril and at the Angler's Nest. She considered that three or four times a year it behoved her to make a serious effort in the way of hospitality鈥攁 substantial and elaborate dinner, in which no good things in season should be spared, and which should be served with all due ceremony. The time was at hand when such a dinner would in a manner fall due; and she determined to hasten the date with a view to Allegra's interests. ???Yet do'st all Constancy disclaim, And under-rate the easy-gotten Prize, Three Ounces of Almonds, with Orange Flow'r-Water, 鈥業t would seem to me to be a dreary kind of religion, and well suited to make men hard and stern. Of the three religions in the Panjab, I think Sikhism by far the best; but then the race of those who profess it in purity seems to be dying away.... The Enemy would not leave poor Man even the scraps of Truth bequeathed by the noble Guru Nanak. It is a sad pity. Hearts which had only known pure Sikhism might have formed a rich soil to receive the seed of the Gospel.鈥? And fruitless Expectations by the Post?

One matter of marked interest in the year 1887 was the retirement of Bishop French from the Bishopric of Lahore, and his return to the humbler post of simple Missionary. This step appealed strongly to Miss Tucker鈥檚 sense of admiration. On the 8th of October she wrote to Mrs. Hamilton:鈥?
