INTER MOUNTAIN'S DAILY SHORT STORY THE TWO ONE-EYED MEN BY JEAN RI('III"PAN. (Copyrighted. t.o3, by the Foreign Story Syndicate Co., Itturlington, Vt.) At that time, about 25 years ago, I lived at the top of the rue St. Jacques and every day, to earn my miserable bread, I was forced to go to the very end of the rue des Martyrs. Iere I woult spend tile morning, and then after a hasty lunch at a cheap restaurant, return to ily lodginlgs again. I made both journeys upon foot, first out of purely ecnomical reasons, and see ondly, because I loved the exercise and the lazy sauntering of the walk home. After being a clerk for three hours on end, it was a pleasant relief to stretch tmy legs on the walk back and forth, and it was pleasanter still to regale my weary eyes with the ever changing aspects of the street. Among these there were certain sights tlhat never changed and which owed their especial charm to their monotony alone. Regularly, every morning, a little before q o'clock, at one end of the rue des Martyrs, near a porte-cochere standing at the right, I would always meet a beggar to whom I gave a sou with an utterly mte chanical gesture. Not less regularly on my way home, about 2 o'clock, at the end of the rue St. Jacques, near a similar porte-cochere, but this time on the left, I tmet another beggar to whom I likewise gave a sou with the same mechanical gesture. For a long time I noticed merely the analogous position chosen by both beg gars, and I paid no attention to the men themselves, except for the fact that both had but one eye. I will not seek to explain why. there fore, one fine day. I suddenly noticed that the beggar of the rue des Martyrs was blind in his left eye and the beggar of the rue St. Jacques was blind in his right eye. All I can say is, that after seeing themt every day for several years, the fact suddenly struck my own eyes, if I may venture to express myself thus. From that day the two beggars interested me and dS I stopped to toss them their daily son, I began to examine them curi ously. Itma'ine my surprise when I finally realized that the two men were strangely alike and yet unlike. The gentleman of the rue des Martyrs was, as I have said, blind in his left eye. and wore a heavy black overcoat of rough cloth and a cap that drew down over his cars, while he of the rue St. Jacques, who was blind in his right eye. was dressed in a lighter coat and a bell-shaped straw hat. But both had exactly the sanme countenance, so that you would have called them brothers antd even twins. I concluded at first that they must indeed be twins. and I reflected that fate had played a merry joke when she caused one to be blind in the right eye and the other in the left. But a' more careful scrutiny led tme to believe that this apparent mystery was in reality but one and the same man, who took his place in the morning in the rue des Martyrs and in the afternoon in the rue Saint Jacques, merely changing his costume and shifting his blindness to the other eye. I was convinced I was not mistaken; the attitude, the gestures, the voice, and especially the appearance of the good eye, were, with both beggars, identically the same. The one good eye had a most extraor dinary look. Whether it was the left or the right, the expression remained the same, at once crafty and mocking. Evi dently the eye of the rue des Martyrs and that of the rue Saint Jacques con stituted a pair of eyes inhabited by a single soul. IThere was no doubt that this pretended blind man was a clear case of make-up, a clever scoundrel. I did not bear him .any ill-will, however, for his cleverne's; I even thought he was so ingenious that I gave hint two sous instead of one, deem ing that he had earned them well. But what was his reason, I wondered, for changing his blind eye? The prob lem bothered mte, for I could not see any plausible explanation. Doubtless you wonder why I did not go and ask him directly. But why should I give pain to a miserable wretch by telling hint that I had discovered the fraud by which he made his money? And I must confess that I felt a secret joy in saying to my self when I gave him the two sous: "I suppose he takes me for a foolI Well, he is one, not I, since I have found out all about it." One day, however, I could not restrain myself and I felt I must tell the old beg gar that I had learned his secret. Let me add. however, that I robbed the act of its brutality by giving him at the same timne a gift of too sous and wishing him a friendly good-morning. "Well," 1 said to the beggar, "give me the key to this riddle that has been tor menting me for three weeks. Why the dickens are you blind first in one eye and then in the other?" "Sir," he answered, "you seem to be a very good sort of a fellow and not the kind to spoil nny industry. Consequently I will be perfectly frank with you. This is the whole root of the tmatter. Our business, you see, is just like any other; the more you practice, the more experi. ence you gain and you learn 'by observ inug. Now, I have found out, in the first place, that the blind man's business is not so good as that of the one-eyed man, Why? I don't know, but that is the way it is. In the second place I have oh served that there are people who are more charitable to those who are blind in the right eye and others who are equally more charitable to the left eye. Why? I don't know that either, but it's just the way it is. Finally, and this is where I have been the slyest; I have discovered, and I don't know the reason any more than for the other things, that a man blind in his right eye does better work on the left bank of the Seine and a mnan blind in his left eye succeeds better on the right bank. You can find out the reason why if you have time and think you can do it. As for me, I have given it up. I am satisfied to profit by my discovery and play the right eyed man on the rue Saint Jacques and the left-eyed man on the rue des Martyrs." He looked at -me, with a glance that was more crafty and more umocking than ever, and then added: "The joke of it is,. you know, that I'm not one-eyed in either ,my right or ,tmy left eye." "The dickens l" I cried, "you don't need to tell me thatl \I Vhat are you ,huckling Ben Mac Donald Successor to John Coplice Company. 212 N. MAIN ST.
