Now be quiet, Ellen, said the elder roughly but not unkindly, as she helped her up, and stuffing the black-bor dered handkerchief into her pocket, took out the everyday one which she kept for use. There, wipe your eyes, and be a stout gal. Don't let all the company see you crying.
The last injunction evidently impressed Ellen, for she stopped at once. Her sister had wiped the grit and the little smear of blood ofi her chin, and stood in the doorway holding her hand while one by one the other carriages drew up and the occupants alighted. Not a word was spoken till they had all assembled, then the young woman said: Please come in and have a cup of tea, and turning on her heel led the way to the dining-room.
