After two or three applications the injured girl stirred faintly, a shade of color came into her cheeks, and she opened her eyes."How can I possibly guess?"
Janet was forced to comply, and Dorothy exclaimed eagerly:
"Well, well," interrupted Janet impatiently, "have your own way, Olive. Make that tiresome, disagreeable girl a female Hercules if you fancy, only cease to talk about her. That is all I have to beg.""Do, my love, and call to me if you do. I would not have that dear girl frightened for the world. I am more vexed than I can say with Hickman."Bridget's movements were so fleet that the head mistress had no time to intercept her; there was a flash of a white dress disappearing through the open window, and that was all.

"We'll all be delighted to have her again, of course," said Olive. "And is she really quite well, Miss Delicia?"
"Well, she's in trouble now," said Dorothy, with a sigh. "I think you are very much mistaken in her, Janet; she's a very original, clever, amusing girl.
