ACROSS the harbor entrance, between
the historic and quaint old walled
city of St. Main and St. Servan, on
tha coast of Brittany, run a queer
llttla submarine railway, which haa but

of tha House. The proximity of bo many
women Incensed the naval captain to such
an extent that he moved the expulsion of
the offending visitors. The motion was car
ried, hut with It the trouble began Instead
of ended. The order 'was one tiling, but
It was nulte another to parry It out. The
ladies held their ground fir two hours
with a tonicity worthy of a hetter cause,
and win n the last was ejected the diffi

state of affairs might have continued till
the present had it not been for the Intol

rigorously) excluded from the House, and
after many years, when this ungallant
attitude waa relaxed, they were allowed to
peep only from a email loft above the chan

The loft would be packed to suffocation,
for It held but fourteen, and at best only
glimpse could be had at tha House
through a hole In the floor. This was In
Miss Bdgeworth's time, and she thus de
scribes It: "One lantern with a farthing

of the garret Is what seemed like a sen

placed round It. On these we got and stood
and peeped over the top of the boards.

No Londoner who can possibly get away

this occasion Johnson and his friend had
mlsaed their train to the country and were
forced to make the best of their unhappy

Having finlehed their luncheon the two
men sat looking through tha windows Into

without exchanging a word. They were
the only members In the club; the streets
were all but deserted; there waa nothing
