	Boweryem  hankering. 
Another attack of the horrors in the afternoon.
Haney came after supper and, just as we were
going out to Goupil s to see a picture, Jack
Edwards appeared.     Turning out together and fin-

Lotty, previous to her to-morrow s embarkation

make a call) but  Jule  Martin, Hill and
others, so he returned growling at them and
wouldn t swell the train tomorrow, though he
 hankered after it,  evidently.    Hill talked of
finding a boarding-house for himself and Brent-
nall, who I suppose was  squiring Lotty to
some of her innumerable  friends.

at noon, into the streets, to escape from myself,
