    SCENE III. The same. Before the palace.

    Enter two Soldiers to their guard
    First Soldier
    Brother, good night: to-morrow is the day.

    Second Soldier
    It will determine one way: fare you well.
    Heard you of nothing strange about the streets?

    First Soldier
    Nothing. What news?

    Second Soldier
    Belike 'tis but a rumour. Good night to you.

    First Soldier
    Well, sir, good night.

    Enter two other Soldiers

    Second Soldier
    Soldiers, have careful watch.

    Third Soldier
    And you. Good night, good night.

    They place themselves in every corner of the stage

    Fourth Soldier
    Here we: and if to-morrow
    Our navy thrive, I have an absolute hope
    Our landmen will stand up.

    Third Soldier
    'Tis a brave army,
    And full of purpose.

    Music of the hautboys as under the stage

    Fourth Soldier
    Peace! what noise?

    First Soldier
    List, list!

    Second Soldier
    Hark!

    First Soldier
    Music i' the air.

    Third Soldier
    Under the earth.

    Fourth Soldier
    It signs well, does it not?

    Third Soldier
    No.

    First Soldier
    Peace, I say!
    What should this mean?

    Second Soldier
    'Tis the god Hercules, whom Antony loved,
    Now leaves him.

    First Soldier
    Walk; let's see if other watchmen
    Do hear what we do?

    They advance to another post

    Second Soldier
    How now, masters!

    All
    [Speaking together] How now!
    How now! do you hear this?

    First Soldier
    Ay; is't not strange?

    Third Soldier
    Do you hear, masters? do you hear?

    First Soldier
    Follow the noise so far as we have quarter;
    Let's see how it will give off.

    All
    Content. 'Tis strange.
