Into this madame was invited to
step, while the precious grapes were
estimated by the plump woman and
Renee and Andre.
Not such a tremendous price, not
greater than would have been paid in
New York for the same bunch of
grapes, and while monsieur paid for
the little bundle, which was now tied
with a red string and furnished with
a wooden handle, the three smiled
pleasantly" at madame. who is petite,
delighted that she looked more happy
standing in the middle of the floor I
in her foot box.
It seemed rather cozy through the
glass panel of the "door to the little
back room.
Four small, cloth-covered tables in
there indicated a probable cafe attachment
to the-tiny shop.
Was it possible to secure a cup of
hot coffee at this hour?
Oh, certainly, but not milk with it
at this hour, and nothing to eat with
it at this hour: black coffee, yes, with
pleasure!
So behold us. in the little back
room, with the silent young woman
out there in the infinitestimal kitchen
preparing the coffee,, and the rest of
the family handy to smile whenever
looked at.
It was then., that we sounded Andre

and it had come to give such satisafction
to us to always receive the
same reply?that the onjy peace
France could consider was a victory.
But we had met some reserve, for
it is a bitter subject, and the French
people, like any other people, do not
care to expose their deepest emotions
to strangers.
In this family, however, we Inadvertently
touched the spark.
- There was an instantaneous change
in all of them, as Andre placed the
