A Proper Choice.
About a month ago when the city
council voted to nave Main street with
A Day with the Wlnemalcers of Argen
teutl Picturesque Scenes That ArtUts
Delight to Dwell Upon The frwonu
and Their Merrymaking.
The commerce of wine being so large an
item in the financial prosperity of France, is
a question worthy of study, and for that pur
pose I started for the little village of Argen
teuil, the spot nearest Paris where the vint
ago may be seen- in all its charms. There
are, indeed, many charming qualities to the
gathering and transportation, the sorting
and pressing of the grapes, the manipulation
of the wine and the festivities connected with
a successful vintage.
See this line of, peasants widening dowa
among the low growing vines. They come
from a longdistance back in the country,
and will stand at the corner of the highroad,
as we read of their standing 1,800 years ago,
waiting "for some man to biro them." Old
men and women, young men and children, in
charming faded blouses and handkerchiefs;
in great woolen sabots, or with no shoes at
all. Glad enough they are to earn the forty.
or thirty, or even twenty cents a day which
is paid for their labor.
Before daylight they began to assemble,
and at 6 a. m. the patron appears. lie en
gages them in order, tosses them a pruniu;
knife and hotte (high wooden basket, carried
on the back), telling them, none too kindly, to
"Go! serve!" and they are off to the day's
It is indeed a subject worthy of the en
thusiasm given it by the French artists. In
the salon one may see half a dozen vintage
pictures in the same room, and I do not won
der at it now, having seen the ever changing
compositions at Areenteuil. The rough
whito walls, the tender green of the vines,
with the dark tones of the grapes, the
faded garments of the laborers those Cue
peasant types with the sunlight over all,
and tbo musical "chantonner" of the work
ers keeping time with the cutting of the
vines, lend a charm indescribably fascinating.
Later they begin the passage from the fields
into tho town. There is no restriction as to
to the means of transportation, although the
largo vineyard owners provide then own
carts, drawn by the great Normandy horses,
festooned with trailing vines artistically ar
ranged about the harness, for in France the
meanest peasant has an eye for the beautiful.

Sympathy for the Suffering.
AY hue the Lincoln council are repos
ing in the arms of the law at Omaha,
they are receiving calls and sympathetic
letters from all quarters. The sheriff has
yieleled up Lis parlor for their benefit
"hottes" arranged in wheelbarrows and
handcarts or a donkey laden with sacks up
to Li.j ears and a "go as please" line of
men ; women ancl children bearing the fruit
in every conceivable manner in "hottes,"
in baskets, in bags, ill pails and wooden
bowls, in boxes and buckets of tin, on their
heads, their backs, their shoulders, between
them in twos and threes and dragged along
in boxes on the ground. As they enter town
they disperse in the direction of the different
cellars and presses.
There are any number of processes of wine
making, and as many methods of pressing
the fruit as there are owners of vineyards,
but almost every peasant has his little vine
yard, and much of the wine is made in their
own cellars, flere they return to first prin
ciples, the men treading the wine press and
stained from bead to foot with the red liquid.
There they use the latest inventions for wine
rnakmg. The great vats, holding!, 200 quarts,
whirl rapidly by steam beneath the counter
movement of a ponderous disk of stone; the
noise of the gushing grape juice is like that
of a small torrent, spouting from a tube on
the right, and the dry masses of pulp ejected
into a trough for the purpose on tbo left,
everything moving in regular order noisy,
ugly, labor saving. Thus modern invention
takes the poetry out of old time customs, and
I turn away disgusted to seek a less modern
atmosphere, a more congenial example of the
good old fashioned wine press.
One may trace to its source the purple red
stream that trickled down between the great
stones of the village street. It will lead per
haps to more interesting fields, and in this
quaint old village one may wander at will
unmolested into every nook and corner.
There is a strong odor of crushed grapes as,
following (hp colored stream, I turn into a
vino covered court, At one end stands a
thatched shed full of the largest casks I ever
saw. Here, sitting on an overturned hotte, a
measure of new wine beside him, sits the
proprietor of the establishment, smoking a
long china pipe.
'Has monsieur ever heard the chanson of
the croconsf' Abks the proprietor, offering a
mug of wine. -'Is mnieur acquainted with
