[Pg 70]"Do try not to make such a fool of yourself," repeated Janet, angrily, in her ear.CHAPTER II. THE NEW GIRL.

"It is more than a pity, Bridget," said her governess in a severe tone. "I am sorry to have to open your eyes, my dear child; but in picking any of my roses you have taken an unwarrantable liberty."She scrutinized Olive's face now, a slightly satirical expression hovering round her somewhat thin lips."I'd punish her very severely," said Miss Patience.
