mattresses on springs, a wedgo shaiied
between them and two pillows on
sometime a pillow with a twister as re
law log and nearly as hard. The J Jlows
are square always, and sometimes they ire. r a
heavy as sand logs. In the matter of over,
a blanket or quilt, a coverlet and a oung
feather bed are the usual articles, evu
in ssrozner time. We netr have toia able
to aloep under the featlur bed, t :ough,
and it is chucked away in the corner. The
only departure from the above rule of bed
dress was in one or two hotels where the top
sheet was sewed up into a bag, buttoned at
the open end and a quilt or blanket pla -ed in
rido of it. The nights were quite cool when
we found this contraption, and it was not so
unfa orable as it might otherwise havo been.
I couldn't find out why the bag sheet pre
vailed. I presume, though, it wes to give the
guest a choice, in case she didnt like tie hide
next to her. In making the beds I observed
one thing I never saw in an American hotel,
namely, that the chambermaid always
tacked the cover well in at the foot. If
there's anything I do dislike, it is to wako up
in the. middle cf the night with my feet jut
ting out into the chilly air and all the. cover
twisted around my neck, like a horse Llanket
round the feet of a runaway nightmare.
Wo mm to this town from Mayer. by
way of the Rhine, as all well regulated
travelers do, making the trip in eiht hours
and a rainstorm. We left at 9 o'clock, and
the rain cams about ten minutes earlier than
that, and the only time it lot upwascbout
soon, when we were down in the cabin at
dinner and didnt care how hard it came
down. I have seen a good many different
kinds of pictures of Rhine scenery, but this
was the first genuine water color that had
come under my notice, and I take great
pleasure in recommending it to luminal con
demnation. After leaf iug Slat ence t be slum

their dripping umtrellas over so that the
water could trickle flown their ncighliors'
backs and remarked something about "Bin
gen, Fair Bingen on the Rhine.'' It sounded
a little monotonous, but I felt that our country
men abroad were showing the uututorcd ca
tions that they knew the ancient classic
poetry indigenous to that sod, and I sa.d just
what the others did: "Eingen, Fair L 'ljcn
on the Rhine" I will say, however, tUa- rliere
is considerable beense in that jortry, cnl if
Bingen was ever extra fair, it w as torivu she
was as old as she is lion. After Binnrn, a
few drizzling, sloppy jokes liegan to Coat
around among the umbrellas and th ir un

Under tho circumstances of our tnp down
the Rhine, I hardly think I am competent to
"criticise the scenery," or compare it with
that of other rivers.

3IA11T.X, THE COBBLE...
As far back as I can remember, I hats
always wen Martin, the cobbler, in htj
stall, nt the corner of the public square of
myiillage. I hate iiluats uoticol him
there, a shoe firmly held between his
knees, bringing his tightly clenched fists
together, landing his cllow, and plying
his ntvl with n regttlanty akin to that
of the heaiy brass pendulum in the clock
ca-e liehlnd him, nttinging tac, tnc, tac,

thy life, Mnrtm, shalt thou ply thy awi
and nield thy hammer, seated upon thy
low chair In thy narrow Ixsoth, nt the
corner of the public square, opiiositc the
church from which, on Sundays, escape
strains as monotonous ns the eternity
of which they sing, ns monotonous as onr
mortal lives which nre ever swinging, tac.
tac, from right to left, from fear to hope!
In spring nnd summer Uie trees in the
sqtiarc nre clad in green; in ntittimn the
leates fall; in tt inter the limbs arc bare
Tac, tac. all thy life, M'irtin, shnlt thou
tin; at thy attl nnd suing thy hammer,
shoes wear out nnd men tt alk. Work ai
ways progresses, but never ends.
On the trunks of tl c trees and on the
ground the shade is riddled with small
luminous spots which eter glide to the
right nnd totlie left, olmlictit to the wind;
end the cicada fills the ulr with its shrill
noise an unchanging, jerky note, w hich
rises and falls as if it flitted far, far
an ay, after having come so near.
The month of August slips by and the
locusts disappear Floods come down
from the hills and inundate the plains.
About the tillage myriads of frogs set up
a loud, unceasing clamor, so regul.ir u
i.ickct, to which we get so accustomed
that, when asleep, a sudden cessation of
it wakes us up with a start, wondering if
anything uuii-u.il has occurred.
In the public square stands a fountain.
From the center of a round Kind arises
i little column supporting a small basin
from which, through four pipes, the water
flows nnd falls into the pond licloiv with a
aierry splash, which never varies, never
linngcs. It is ever the same monotonous
.nirth, tint makes us feel sad when we
icmember that it is always thus, as indif
ferent to the departure of the dead cov
ered with a black pall and being com eyed
t urough the public square to their last
resting place as it is to the arnviil of tho
new born babe carried to the church for
The fountain with its four pipes is a
time keeper ns well: it seems to mark the
four seasons; it points to the north, to tlie
south, to the east nnd to the west. Its
waters rustle continuously, just like tho
leaves, like the frogs nnd like the locusts,
l:ke the strains from the church, like the
pendulum, liko old Martin's hamme-
pan, paul Shoes wear out and men travel.
Work progresses, but is tiei er finished
Old Martin has a wife; a good, economi
cal wife. Eten on Sundays he works,
heedless of the cure's remonstrances. "If
I did not work on Sunday, Monsieur le
Cure, I would probably get tight!" Xo
one has ever seen him drank, not even his
happy wife, who ndores him.
What does Old Martin think about ns
he plies lil-s an 1, as he wields his hammer
"1'is odd he wishes to give up his stall.
He is pLinning to quit it altogether.
From the square passers by w ho glance

tha plaicd door, which is just as wide as
the shop itself, is bordered with verdure,
and Oil Martin on the inside, behind the
glass, in the center of his frame of lloners,
resembles a lifelike picture, ono of those
masterpieces to tt hich the artist gives so
much expression, such an appearance of
reality that n single glance gives us nn in
sight of the life of the jH?rson represented,
his habits, eten of his ery thoughts.
Always unchanging, just like a painted
picture. Old Martin grows old ns he plies
his awl. From time to fme he raises his
Lead, casts a hasty look at the square
where the fountain plays, where men
tvalk. "How d'do, Pero Martin" "How
d'dp, ho't'd'do" They pass by nnd go
about their business. They will come
What are Old Martin's thoughts so
busy about lie is thinking of citing up
his little shop. He has had enough of it.
He feels that he is gettingold. And it Is
just liecause he has had enough of tho
shop that he remains there; that he does
not move from it; that he is to I seen
thcro so early in the morning and so lato
at night, jiegging awnyl Martin works
Iinnl now, so as to lie able to stop working
someday. His plans are all laid out. He
is saving money. Pan. pan! During a
whole lifetime he will drudge, so as to
have, at the end. a few happy days with
out work, when he will change his quar
tern and no longer have to say: "Walk
in. walk in, tte will see about it!" or
"The Ion est price is sis francs!" or "Hotv
tl'di, hotv d'do!" to each passing wag
oner. 'ihen, lie will have a garden, n little
garden of hw own, which he will water
nud attend to, in front of a little Iiome he
v.i'.l hate built. In his mind he had ai
re uly selected the site of tho house; it
will lie nt one of the extremities of the
ullage, at u short distance from the high
way where men walk and shoes are worn
out. Old Martin is gettitig tired of
dnidgim; with mil and hammer.
Honest Martin smiles ns he works, be
cause his heart is light w itli hope. He is
n worthy limn and customers come to his
shop from afar He is hoarding up shin
in ; pieces of money in the old Ixiots that
dandle from the ceiling of his attic.
Strike, hummer; How, fountain. Folks
say that little brooks, eh! eh! ehl make
great rivers; little by little, pan, pan, pan,
the bird builds its nest Eh, eh,
eh! And it happens now, that those who
pass by the shop, hear old Martin laugh.
He is laughing nil to himself oierhis
pleasant faticies, his little garden, his cozy
home that will b- built oil the spot l.o
knows so well, nt one of the extremities
