"You wore going to tell mo about tbo corbeille.'' "Oui, oui, oui MademolBollo: In the first place it is a beautiful basket and into it wo put a dress or two, some real lace, and a necklace or some rings. It iB, of course, according to tho income of tbo young man or h'lB paronts, but it is the groom's particular gift to bis bride There are very few French girls, even among tho poor, who have not a corbeillo of some description." It is quite a charming idea, and still, Madame, it seems like a necessary, petit thnnk you for the bride's dowry." "It is true, I suppose, but wo never put it in that frank fashion. You shouldn't think of things in that light, Mademoiselle." "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 inside. 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 country." "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 Ja double, you know, in France.
