It is quite a charming idea, and still,

"It is true, I suppose, but wo never
put it in that frank fashion. You
shouldn't think of things in that light,
"Well.Madame," said Monsieur Roguot
to Madame Rubore, "The dot was very
satisfactory. Porhpps they will come
out from Paris today. But lot us take,
Mademoiselle, L'Amoricaine now to see
tho church."
"It is us you wish," said bis wife doa-pondontly-
The church was principally a Gothic
affair, I remember, with incidentals of
several centuries of other architectures
thrown in, but its poise was mujestic
and rolieved by a certain buoyant grace
fulness Ab is so often the case the out
side was much more pleasing than the
Down below in the hollow of tho town
was an odd, round-like church. Its
quaintness very appealing.
"Oh, Monsieur, do take us down
there," I begged.
"Oh, no, no, Mademoiselle. It is too
old, too dilapidated."
"But it looks so interesting."
"Jo voub assure, Mademoiselle, that it
is very commonplace. It iB too old, je
voua assure"
There are no modernities oven in
France. Some day I am going back to
Pontoiso all myself acd see that church.
Tho others hastened on and Germaine
and I came slowly,
"I hato everyone," said Germaine.
"Madame Roguet was so afraid that her
aon might care for me. We Baw much
of each other as children, and she is so
jubilant to think that he is married.
You see as a child 1 had much more
than her childron. She thinks that I
am pining away for Monsieur Edouard.
PoDscz done!
"But Gormaino you must remember
that you have a vivid imagination,
Perhaps Madame Roguet isn't as fiend
ish as you think her."
"Monsieur Edouard did care for me.
He is an engineer, too, you know. He
was sent first to England and then to
Scotland. He was gone two years and
whon he roturned be wiahod to marry
me. You see, ho proposed to me, my
self, the way the English do. He is ter
ribly selfish though, like that," pointing
to a flock of geese fighting over a few
crumbs of bread that had been thrown
upon the water. "I didn't like him, and
I told him eo. His people, however,
don't know about it, and his mother
wouldn't believe me, even if I told her;
and I wouldn't bo mean enough to tell
her. But she makes mo simply furious,
and Germaine Btamped her foot.
We had come out upon a height that
looks off and down toward Paris, and
here was just a corner of that chapel
built by Saint Louis. Tbo ivy literally
preserving the memory of its saintly
founder. The villagers were just going
homo from their days work, and in tho
distance rose tho monuments of PariB.
Nothingness and insignificance are mo
notonous, to say the least, that I know
from personal experience. There is,
however, scarcely a more efficient remedy
for these irritable feelings than a bundle
of centuries. In each century thore are
numerous people, little flies that are
larger and more important than the oth
ers, but they are gradually lost io the
tout en somble. Only rarely cornea a
great big blue-bottle fly that buzzes, and
buzzes,and people rise up and do homage
to it, and then this big, blue, bottle fly
is gone."
"Germaine, your France is a beautiful
"I don't know," she said, and then
gave her hat that sailor bat a defiant
jerk. I am glad, glad that I am going
back to England next week. Glad to
leave Franco. I even wish that I was
not French.
The town clock rang out the hour, and
Gormalne's mothor waved her parasol as
a danger signal. The train would soon
be going.
On the way to tho station wo passed
some people, who glancing at our head
coverings, murmured one to tho other
"Los Anglalses. Los Anglaises.
Germaine scowled, gasping as we hur
ried along, "I am not English. Paa du
tout, du tout, du tout. I am French,
and some way I did not enjoy the Eng
lish epithet.
But we must hasten. Thero was but
little time and Monsieur, Madame, Oline
and Nanquet must all be kissed whether
we made the train or no, and the process
