their dislke of the Fteuchz riitairy
men. The correspondent walked into
a eigar store the other day, while a
French ollicer was attempting to make
the woman in charge understand the
brand of cigarettes he wantked. She
see:-ed absolutely at a loss to under
stand him when the correspondent
translated the otlicer's request in Eng
lish. After the officer had departed
she told the correspondent in -purest
French: "I understood him the first
time but I would not give himI the sat
isfaction." Many shopkeepers have
forsaken good sales by the same reluc
tance to speak French.
Few women in Dusseldorf, flubhort
or Duisburg will be seen in the com

or officer in the streets. The few wio
transgress the unwritten law arc
promptly catalogued at the German
city ieadat orters and are marked for
reprisals. In some Cases the diliculty
is avoided by the occupziyilg swain
adopting civilian clothes, Which seems
to be satisfactory all arounzid.
In thie 'wizne cellars of lie iost
fashi onable restaurants of Diusselzorf,
there is a corner called "the occupa
tion corner." There are diosited all
the 'bottles of w ines which have been
refuzsed by the German eistomers as
having soured owing to defectlive
corks. When a party of Frencl oli
cers puts in an appearance the-y are
alw-ys served with two or tzree bot

Srbm~ t rly reject, as a Frenchman's
taste for wine is infallible, but 1)y the
time a real good bottle of wizze is
reached "tlhe 'French cannot taste tize
good of it'' as one leadwaiter put it.
The oentrance of a party of "ien chi
ollicers in a beer garden causes the
temiperattire to descend to the f'reez

vacated as promptly as they were by
llelgials inl their cafes wlen German
