INTER MOUNTAIN'S DAILY
THE TWO ONE-EYED MEN
BY JEAN RI('III"PAN.
(Copyrighted. t.o3, by the Foreign Story
Syndicate Co., Itturlington, Vt.)
At that time, about 25 years ago, I
lived at the top of the rue St. Jacques and
every day, to earn my miserable bread, I
was forced to go to the very end of the
rue des Martyrs. Iere I woult spend tile
morning, and then after a hasty lunch at
a cheap restaurant, return to ily lodginlgs
I made both journeys upon foot, first
out of purely ecnomical reasons, and see
ondly, because I loved the exercise and
the lazy sauntering of the walk home.
After being a clerk for three hours on
end, it was a pleasant relief to stretch tmy
legs on the walk back and forth, and it
was pleasanter still to regale my weary
eyes with the ever changing aspects of the
Among these there were certain sights
tlhat never changed and which owed their
especial charm to their monotony alone.
Regularly, every morning, a little before
q o'clock, at one end of the rue des
Martyrs, near a porte-cochere standing at
the right, I would always meet a beggar to
whom I gave a sou with an utterly mte
Not less regularly on my way home,
about 2 o'clock, at the end of the rue St.
Jacques, near a similar porte-cochere, but
this time on the left, I tmet another beggar
to whom I likewise gave a sou with the
same mechanical gesture.
For a long time I noticed merely the
analogous position chosen by both beg
gars, and I paid no attention to the men
themselves, except for the fact that both
had but one eye.
I will not seek to explain why. there
fore, one fine day. I suddenly noticed
that the beggar of the rue des Martyrs
was blind in his left eye and the beggar
of the rue St. Jacques was blind in his
right eye. All I can say is, that after
seeing themt every day for several years,
the fact suddenly struck my own eyes, if
I may venture to express myself thus.
From that day the two beggars interested
me and dS I stopped to toss them their
daily son, I began to examine them curi
ously. Itma'ine my surprise when I finally
realized that the two men were strangely
alike and yet unlike. The gentleman of
the rue des Martyrs was, as I have said,
blind in his left eye. and wore a heavy
black overcoat of rough cloth and a cap
that drew down over his cars, while he of
the rue St. Jacques, who was blind in his
right eye. was dressed in a lighter coat
and a bell-shaped straw hat. But both had
exactly the sanme countenance, so that you
would have called them brothers antd even
I concluded at first that they must
indeed be twins. and I reflected that fate
had played a merry joke when she caused
one to be blind in the right eye and the
other in the left.
But a' more careful scrutiny led tme to
believe that this apparent mystery was
in reality but one and the same man,
who took his place in the morning in the
rue des Martyrs and in the afternoon in
the rue Saint Jacques, merely changing
his costume and shifting his blindness
to the other eye. I was convinced I was
not mistaken; the attitude, the gestures,
the voice, and especially the appearance
of the good eye, were, with both beggars,
identically the same.
The one good eye had a most extraor
dinary look. Whether it was the left or
the right, the expression remained the
same, at once crafty and mocking. Evi
dently the eye of the rue des Martyrs
and that of the rue Saint Jacques con
stituted a pair of eyes inhabited by a
IThere was no doubt that this pretended
blind man was a clear case of make-up,
a clever scoundrel. I did not bear him
.any ill-will, however, for his cleverne's;
I even thought he was so ingenious that
I gave hint two sous instead of one, deem
ing that he had earned them well.
But what was his reason, I wondered,
for changing his blind eye? The prob
lem bothered mte, for I could not see any
plausible explanation. Doubtless you
wonder why I did not go and ask him
directly. But why should I give pain to
a miserable wretch by telling hint that
I had discovered the fraud by which he
made his money? And I must confess
that I felt a secret joy in saying to my
self when I gave him the two sous:
"I suppose he takes me for a foolI
Well, he is one, not I, since I have found
out all about it."
One day, however, I could not restrain
myself and I felt I must tell the old beg
gar that I had learned his secret. Let me
add. however, that I robbed the act of
its brutality by giving him at the same
timne a gift of too sous and wishing him
a friendly good-morning.
"Well," 1 said to the beggar, "give me
the key to this riddle that has been tor
menting me for three weeks. Why the
dickens are you blind first in one eye and
then in the other?"
"Sir," he answered, "you seem to be a
very good sort of a fellow and not the
kind to spoil nny industry. Consequently
I will be perfectly frank with you. This
is the whole root of the tmatter. Our
business, you see, is just like any other;
the more you practice, the more experi.
ence you gain and you learn 'by observ
inug. Now, I have found out, in the first
place, that the blind man's business is
not so good as that of the one-eyed man,
Why? I don't know, but that is the way
it is. In the second place I have oh
served that there are people who are more
charitable to those who are blind in the
right eye and others who are equally more
charitable to the left eye. Why? I don't
know that either, but it's just the way it
is. Finally, and this is where I have been
the slyest; I have discovered, and I don't
know the reason any more than for the
other things, that a man blind in his right
eye does better work on the left bank of
the Seine and a mnan blind in his left eye
succeeds better on the right bank. You
can find out the reason why if you have
time and think you can do it. As for me,
I have given it up. I am satisfied to
profit by my discovery and play the right
eyed man on the rue Saint Jacques and the
left-eyed man on the rue des Martyrs."
He looked at -me, with a glance that
was more crafty and more umocking than
ever, and then added:
"The joke of it is,. you know, that I'm
not one-eyed in either ,my right or ,tmy
