In Tuscany Even the Peasants Indulge
In This Pastime.
Vlstt the home of a peosant In Tus

will be surprised and charmed, writes
Mr. Itlchard Bagot in "The Italians of
Today." Gathered round the kitchen
Ore after the day's work is done, these
peasants, fresh from their rough labor
In tho fields and vineyards, vie with
each other In reciting poetry and tell
Ing stories. Generally both are extem
poraneous, and often they have a good
deal of poetic grace and Imagination.
The gift of reciting improvised poetry
Is not. however, confined to the peas
ants .in Tuscany. I know of an in
stance that occurred in my own neigh
borbood not so very long ago that cer
tainly could not have occurred any
where but In Tuscany. A local doctor
was driving to catch a train at a sta
tion a few miles from me, and on his
way ho was accosted by a colleague
who happened to be looking over his
garden wall. The colleague shouted
out a line of Improvised verse to him,
upon which the other instantly pulled
up his horse and capped the line with
another.
Doctor No. 2 responded, and for
three hours the poetic contest was con
tinued without cessation in the mean
time the whole of the village hud turn
ed out to listen and to make wagers on
which would be the first to lack an In
spiration. It wii.4, only us dusk came
on that doctor JCo 1 remembered that
he was on bis way to catch a train!
Whether a patient was. expecting
him I know not. but I feel convinced
that such a detail would not have been
allowed to Interfere with this war of
verses.
It is interesting to see that even the
illiterate peasants detect at once the
slightest departure from the form In
which the original lines aro set and
consider the offender to have lost the
match.
The Oyster.
The oyster is a very ancient Institu
tion and a most honorable ono. From
time Immemorial poets have sung of
him and orators have dwelt upon his
charms. Juvenal, the most illustrious
of all satirists, enlivened the literary
charms of tho reigns of Trojan and
Hadrian with his comments on the
oyster, and the comments were not
satirical either, but warmly commend
atory- The oyster, the true cosmopo
lite. Ik found pretty nearly everywhere
and was Uip delight of the world for
ages upon ages before the man from
Genoa found the shores of America.

"She Is not young."
I "Urn. She has been described to me
as a remarkably fine woman."
I This was for pumping purposes. Tho
lady had not been described to him
at all.
"Sho has friends," was the senten
tious reply.
j "That is true of all of us."
"Quito so."
"I'm very Ignorant," Mr. Hlnchel
wood proceeded In this unanimated
dialogue, "of everything that has been
going on about here. I haven't been
here for a matter of ten years."
"That's a long while for ono to be
away from home."
Now, It must not be Inferred because
the two confined themselves to these
commonplace remarks that they were
bored with each other. Mr. Hlnchel
wood gathered from the young wo
man's quiet though Impressive de
meanor that she was a person of char
acter, and. though he smacked of Rot
ten row and Piccadilly, she gathered
that he was nobody's fool. After some
ten or fifteen minutes of these prelim
inaries they fell to chatting about
places abroad, and the lady showed
herself as familiar with them as the
man. The ice at last broken, they
enjoyed a chat which Mr. Hlnchel
wood was surprised to notice by his
watch after leaving bad occupied more
than an hour. lie would huve liked
to ask tho lady's position in the house
hold, but was too well bred to do so.
Later a meeting wns arranged be
tween Mr. Hlnchelwood and Mrs.
Meriweather to occur in the office of
her attorney, ostensibly with a view
to making some mutual concessions
that would better the situation as to
their properties. But the real object
was, and was so understood by both
parties, to give them an opportunity
to have a look at each other to deter
mine whether the difficulties might not
be overcome by a union of Interests by
marriage.
Mr. Hlnchelwood, remembering the
few words be had beard about Mrs.
Meriweather from tho person who had
received him at her house, was indif
ferent, but consented to the meeting.
When he was confronted by the young
woman he had met before he supposed
she had come to represent her princi
pal. When he was Introduced to her
as Mrs. Meriweather be stood gaping
at her.
"You aro Mrs. Meriweather?" he
Mked.
"I am."
"You told me"
"No falsehoods. I said Mrs. Meri
weather was at home, but indisposed.
I was not feeling very well that mom
tog." There was a lot of legal talk between
the lawyers that did not bring any re
sult. Mr. Hlnchelwood made another
call on the widow, and another and
another. Finally tho lawsuit was end
ad and the two properties made one
by the marring of the owners.
