Very iliircront nro tho feelings of
Jacques towards his army. Ho loves it
in tho singular becuuso his boy belong.,
to it (every Frenchman hits to servo in
the army). In the plural, howovor, It
represents authority , and he is well nwnro
that the army Is ready for mens u police
foreo in case ho should over bo tempted
to nialio bis voice heard too loudly in de
manding n reform. This is why French
soldiers in their ill Ileum t garrison towns

Tho French unity is viewed through
tunny spectacles. Tho Conservatives see
in it tho preservers of order; tho Undl.
cals it danger to tho liberties of tho na
tion; tho League of tho Patriots call it
tho hope of France. To the French Mary
Jane it is tho repository of tender senti
ments: to tho tradesman of tho garrison
town, it tiourco of Ineomo. Hall giving
ladies like it because it provides them
witli dancers who nro ns ornamental ns
useful, though tho olllcer's uniform is no
longer tho gorgeous dress it was in my
time, wlnm a lieutenant's full uniform
cost from a half to it tvhola year's pay.
French girls have it deep conviction tliat
no man can malio lovo lil;o n young lieu
tenant; but papa wns always apt lo
frown on him, knowing that tills Romeo
had generally more gold on his shoulders
than in his waistcoat pocket, nnd that,
according ti tho nrmy regulations, no
ofileer might marry n, lady with less than
IJO.OOO francs dot.
But hero comes tho regiment. Let us
open tho window and have it look at the
"Children of France," us Dernngor called
In front march tho sapeurs, with their
long, bushy beards covering their chests.
Look nt ouo and you will see them all.
Sapeurs nro nil alike: to bo nblo to tell
ouo from another is a proof of marvel
ous perspicacity. Under tho umplro tho
sapeur.i used to march with largo white
leather aprons covering their chest nnd
lego, hatchets over their shoulders and
hugo busbies on their heads; and they
Conned an imposing looking lody. Tho
aprons nro now done away with, but the
hatchets tiro retained. Most of tlto ofU
cers' orderlie.i wero taken from this part
of tho regiment, nnd it was a pleasant
sight to see one of theso good fellows,
who are mostly middle tiged, fatherly
looking men, with hii apron on, lending
about tho children of some married ofti
cer, who inndo uso of him as a dry
nurse (not so dry cither, for wo still say
in Franco "to drink liko it sapeur").
Thesu big, kind, bearded nurses have
always been favorites with their llttlo
charges, and nro great nt telling Btories,
long stories, ending in tho heroine's
marrying ft general. Tho olllco of th
sapeurs being to precedo tho regiment
nnd clear away nil obstacles that could
impedo its march, tho hatchet was ori
ginally it very Important part of their
acceutcrment. Hut in these days virgin
forests nro not plentiful in Europe, tho
high roads nre excellent, nnd tho colonel
prefers to uso them: so that now the
chief utility of the formidable tool Is to
chop wood to mnke the pot boil.
Next como the drummers and buglers,
(low martial they took with their heads
high, every head turned to tho right and
every buglo parallel, making the air ro
sound with their fanfares! Tlioy aro
very popular witli tho soldiers. It b tho
buglers who, with their stirring notes,
cheer tho men when they show signs of
(lagging on a loug, weary march. I
luivo seen them nt tho foot of it steep hill,
tired, perhaps, with hours of marching.
"Sound tho charge." says tho colonel,
and immediately, ns if by magic, tho
limp legs nnd backs straighten, anil tho
column of men step out bravely, singing
to tho notes of tho buglo:
II y a la gouttu a bolro la-lmut,
UyaU gouttu a balm
Tho summit of the hill reached, the
goutte is dispensed by tho Cautlniere, and
generally takes tho form of a small glass
of brandy, which in timo of peace has to
bo paid for at tho rate of a" penny tho
glass. The bugler has no need to pull
out his purse; every trooper is ready to
treat him. Tltoso of tho men who have
seen active servico can never forgot how
those same notes that havo just cheered
t'u'in tii the hill nerved them when they
hud to charge tho enemy, nnd know that
ill many n terrible battle, when the ene
my's guns did their deadly work too well,
ono or two r.urvivlng buglers havo brave
ly cheered oil the diminished ranks to
tho last, nnd perhaps turned the fortune
Next to thn buglers comes the band
The nppenrauce of thu bandsmen is not
particularly martial; the uniform is n
little bit neglige. Wo nro in tho pres
ence of artistes now.
Why tho trotnborfo should bo tho old
est member of the baud I havo never
been able to discover: but it isiv fact that
ho is, nine times out of ten, n gray head
ed, spectacled man, with it grave expres
sion and three stripes on his sleeves. He
feel the wei ;ht of iU responsibility. It
is all very well for tho clarionet to take
lifo lightly; if he plays a note a little Hut,
It passes in the general hum of tho music
without any tilmtsirou consequences; hut
n wrong itoto from tho trombone is awful
to think ofl So ho looks neither to right
nor left, nnd never loses sight of his ma
jestic Instrument, As n man who only
plays accompaniments, tho trombone is
modest, nnd seems to npologlr.o for tho
noiso ho makes.
Tho cornet plays solos, nnd tho up
plauso ho has won from tho public In tho
place d'armea has mndo him vnln. Hold
ing his Instrument in tho nlr, ho is not
only seen nnd heard, but can see tho ef
fect ho produces. Ho is young nnd good
looking, waxes his mustache nnd I n
perfect lady killer. Cornet plnyers, liko
tenors, nro conceited.
Tho fluto Is reserved. Tho hnblt of
easting down his eyes on his tiny Instru
ment lias itiiidu him bashful,
Tho clarionet is n picture of misery.
With head bent down, ho looks liko u
plnlnttvo philosopher giving utternneotu
ills sad views of life,
Tho masher of tho band Is tho hauthol.
His unifotm is unimpeachable, and mora
than mice tho colonel has frowned on
him' for showing too much white collar.
Ho gives private lessons in town.
Tho ophicleldo Is funereal, His general
expression It ouo of solemnity. Tho
only time his face lights up nt nil is when
ho has to play tho "Prayer of Moses" ns
it nolo. That Is his triumph,
Tho ImudmnMcr ranks with tho quar
termaster. In his numerous leisure hours
ho composes variations on tho principal
airs of "William Tell" nnd "Norma" n
thankless task, seeing that theso airs of
Rossini and Helllui nro good enough for
most people in their original form. Hut
it is ids prido to hco his name on it pro
gram mo in company with these great
ones, nnd so ho works uway nt his "Airs
from 'William Tell,' arranged (deranged?)
by N , bandmaster of tho rorty-seo-
ond Light Foot." Just its ovcry English
chomist has composed n special tooth

"Pitou" by his compatriots.
The married ofllcer keeps to himself,
und does his best to keep Ids wife at
homo. French susceptibilities, in bar
racks especially, nro soon wounded, nnd
lie wants to avoid the possibility of quar
rels that might arise from tho dear
ladies' tnttle. He does wool work in his
spare moments, and looks forward to the
time when he will bo nble to retire on
Ills pension. Ho is it pcuco loving man.

Tho serious ofllcer Is the ouo who looks
for promotion. lie is a soldier by pro
fession nnd by vocation. Ho studies
tactics and military history, and prac
tices fencing, shooting at targets, swim
ming nnd till uthletio siorts. Ho lias the
campaigns of Napoleon nt Ills lingers'
ends. You will always see him poring
over maps. Ho studies geography ami
tho German language. Ho Is of opinion
that when the. French can nil speak Ger

Tho olllccr of foituno is tlioono who
lias not got any and runs into debt.
Uivo him a wide berth; lie is the bully
of tho regiment, very quick to take of
fense, und ovcrticklish on tho point cf
The oiTber who has risen from tho
ranks is very popular with tho soldiers,
whose wants ho knows much better than
do tho young lieutenants fresh from tho
military school. His messmates say "ho
is not a gentleman." Ho is, howovor, a
good soldier and a trusty, straightfor
ward man. It is truo that his manners
nro not rellned. Ho can speak very fair
French, but prefers bad language, and
pan swear for quarter of uu hour with
out using tho same oath twice.
I remember, during tho Franco-Prussian
war, I happened to bo quartered for
a day In an aristocratic household in
Lorraine with n lieutenant of this type.
Trembling at the thought of my worthy
friend's unruly member, 1 seated myself
nt our host's dinner tublo. All went well
until thn conversation unluckily fell
upon military inarches, when tho lady
of tho house wanted to know. whether
tho feet did not suffer very much with
such u quantity of walking to do overy
day in tho hot weather.
"I'll tell you what, ma'am," said ho,
"you must never wash tho feet. I nover
do. Ureaso them well with tallow nnd
thoy'll bo nil right."
Tho lady wished slio had not spoken.
Later on there was it whist party
formed li tho drawing room, nnd my
comrade was asked if he would mako a
fourth nt u little table where three old
whibt players wero already seated, ready
to enjoy their favorito gamo.
"With pleusure, I'm sure," said ho,
comfortably Installing himself In tho
empty chair "only I must tell you I
nover played before."
Tho face of thoold gentlemun opposite,
ns ho looked nt him over Ills spectacles,
wns it study.
The Bcrgeant mujor is pretentious. He
will tell you that if ho wero a civilian lie
could occupy it position that very few
ofllcers would bo ahlo to fill. When lie
retires to private lifo ho Ixxists of having
been it sergeant major.
Tho corporal, to be seen In till his
glory, must be studied when ho has
a written report to make to the colonel.
Ho is n good fellow, who rules four men,
and dclles till rules of grammar. His
spelling is phonetic: yet lie loves loug
words, und his reports bristle with such
words ns nevertheless, notwithstanding.
Ho Is regarded by his four men us tin au
thority on elegant diction. A private
may bu able to spell, but u corjKiral never
such is the deep rooted ladief of nil
French ofllcers. I wus present one day
when n corporal came to the doctor with
ouo of his men who was unlit for the
saddle. The doctor examined him and
found him suffering from rheumatism.
Tho corporal proceeded to till tin tho
requlslto form for tho man's ndmlsslon
to tho nearest military hospital.
"Cnn you spell rheumatism, corporal?"
said tho doctor.
"I think I can, doctor, thank you," re
plied ho, saluting,
That corporal wan Louis Cootloyon,
ono of tho lending journalists of Paris,
who had volunteered soon after tho out
break of tho war. Wo had n good laugh
over tho Incident when I told tho doctor
of his blunder.
"What business hits ho to bo a corporal
If ho can shI1?" exclaimed tho surgeon,
who was it llttlo hit sorry for whnt had
l'ltoti serves his country for tho mod
est Htiln of two sous it day. He receives
ouo sou cash, und tho other is placed to
his credit until his term of service Is
over, when hu Is presented with it sum
representing ns many sous, plus Interest,
as ho has spent days In tho nrmy. Of
courso his pay is not often his only
source of revenue. Many soldiers work
nt some trado inside tho barrack, and
those who come from tho middle clnsses
nro well supplied with ixicket money
from home even the peasant's sou is
suro to receive a little help ovcry month.
no rises ui o in tnu morning, and as
there is no food served heforu 8, ho goes
straight to the canteen und has his petit
verro (a tublespoonful of brandy). He
tosses it nt ouo draught, drains tho dregs
out in his palms and touches up his hnlr
Great fraternity prevails in tho bar
racks. If there aro any empty iiockcts,
their owners nro not allowed to go short.
He who received it llttlo postolllco order
yesterday Is always ready to pay. The
poor fellow who has nothing hut his sou
n day is never left out either, und not
ouo of his comrades who treat him would
think of alluding to his inability to re
turn their kindness. Ho is drilled eight
hours it day. At 8 it. m. nnd 4 p. m. hu
has his gamello containing it piece of
beef, cooked nnd served In it good, thick
soup of vegetables. Tills savory nnd
nourishing repast is eaten with bread,
und forms IiIb only food in timo of peace.
How often during the war, when tho
ofllcer's dinner wns but n dream, havo I
relished n dish of this uppeliziug com
pound brought mo by my good orderly!
I cannot relnto hero tho thousands of
jokes that tho barracks have furnished,
and will always furnish, to tho French
comlo papers. Hut I cannot refrain from
mentioning tho curious fact that ouo
finds Hlberninnlsm common ninong tho
ranks, while not to bo found elsowhero
in France. I remember ouo hull that
Paddy might bo proud to havo perpe
trated. Pitou, ordered by a coriraral to dig a
pit and bury a quantity of rubbish from
tho yard, is In trouble. Ho has per
formed his task, but there is no room in
tho pit for all tho mold which was dug
out to mnke it; so ho comes to his cor
poral to ask whut ho shall do.
"You fool," said tho corporal magnifi
cently, "mako tho pit larger, of courso."
In war timo tho French soldier is ad
mirable. The good humor with which
lie goes through tho grcutest hardships
is simply wonderful. If the provisions
are not nt hand ho breakfasts off n joko
or a song. Tho only thing that puts him
out is to get short weight when tho ra
tions of bread, rice, coffee, sugar and
salt nro scrvod out. Ho always goes
straightway and weighs them, to mako
suro ho lias his duo, und if there is a de
ficiency of tho tcntli of an ounce ho will
grumblo nil day; but If his rations nro
right, he is right, ready for anything tho
day may bring, merry ns a lark. His
philosophical way of taking tho inovitu
ulo, nnd putting a good fnco on personal
misfortuuo, is proverbial. At tho battlo
of Worth one of my men had his right
bund completely shot nwny by a shell.
Seeing tho poor fellow look at hfo
maimed arm as ho was being carried
away, I went to him nnd gavo him a
word of sympathy.
"Ay, raon lieutenant," ho cried, "I
shall havo to learn to mako cigarettes
with ono hand!"
Tho wholo character of tho French sol
dier is there.
