"O Bridget!" exclaimed the little girls, starting back in affright.
"Yes, darling, I did. Shall we go into the common room now? I'm dying to see it."
"You have disobeyed me. One of my strictest rules forbids the girls to leave the grounds without permission. You not only left the grounds contrary to my express order, but you took several of the little children of the school with you. It is against my orders to have the trees destroyed by breaking off branches. Knowing this, you willfully disobeyed me again, and you and your companions rushed down the road shouting wildly. What was the result? Evelyn Percival mercifully escaped serious injury, but my carriage was broken and my horse damaged.

"Well, dear, you are not to blame. I shall take you to Eastcliff this afternoon, and order some plain dresses to be made up for you.""Oh, I'll come to that by and by; now about Miss O'Hara. Janet, I deny that she's weak."
"If she had any strength, she'd be ashamed of her ignorance," retorted Janet.
Ruth and Olive slept in the back part of the room. They had a cubicle each, of course, but they had not Dorothy's taste, and their little bedrooms had a dowdy effect beside hers.
