The winter' passed. The early
spring work of Melicourt Papin,
who was engaged in a sort ot agri
cultural life, demanded more and
more of bis time and attention: so
that Auguste was left more and
more on his own resources for amus
ment. Time began to hang a little
heavy, and he began to talk of bis
departure; but the cheerful wife of
Monseur l'apin urged him not to
hurry, assuring him that the voyage
would be much pleasanter later.

journey down the Osage would
then be really delightful; the full
