They Always Treat a Stranger With
In Brittany all peasants carry their
own knives, and, as for forks, they
have no use for them. George Whar
ton Edwards tells in "Brittany and the
Bretons" of a visit to an inn where he
met with the proverbial Breton hospi
An old withered Breton .woman sat 1
at the fireside busily knitting at a jer
sey of blue wool, and three men sat at
a table playing some sort of game with
domlnos. The men gave no apparent
heed to our entrance, but I knew we
were being discussed in their patois. .
We asked for bread, butter and a
pitcher of cider, which was forthcom
ing, but no knives were brought. Not
ing our predicament, the three men at
once produced their knives, immense
horn handled affairs, and after wiping
them very carefully and considerately
on their coat sleeves they opened and
proffered them to us.
"And now, madame," said I, "what
shall I pay you?"
Five sous for the cider, m'sieur.
There Is no charge for the bread, for is
not that the gift of bon Dieu?"
Thus it is throughout this strange
land of Brittany. One may travel
from end to end away from the large
cities and everywhere meet with the
same hospitality. The peasant will
willlnj'.y share with you what he has
in the cupboard and will not ask for
I left an offering of silver upon the
window sill among the bails of woolen
yarn. I noticed that the act was not
lost upon the old Bretonne, who when
she caught my eye gave me a charm

THE ROCK PTARMIGAN.
A Bird of Storms and Ice, Raw Mists
and Bleak Winds.
In order to make the acquaintance
of the ptarmigan it is necessary either
to journey into the snows and ice of
the far north or to climb up to the
very highest glacier valleys among the
frozen peaks of the Rockies or Cas
cades, where circumpolar conditions
are reproduced. While this curious
bird is essentially a subarctic type, it
is occasionally found among the iso
lated fields of eternal snow as far
south as Colorado and northern New

Violins Old and New.
There is a general impression that
very old violins and violoncellos are
much superior in tone to. similar instru
ments of modern construction. The
point was debated by a number of
Faris musicians, who decided In favor
of the modern instrument. Sis ancient
violoncellos were chosen, including a
Stradivarius, a Theckler, a Cappa, a
Pressenda and a Guarnerius, together
with six modern instruments. These
were played alternately by Senor Ca
sals, who was hidden from sight, the
instrur ents being Indicated to the Jury
by a number and marks awarded
according to beauty of tone. The
