HAT happiness Is to be found some
where outside himself seems to be
almost universal feeling among
I mankind. "Dort wo du nicht bist,
dort is das Gluck." As the years
I pass by, the fallacy ln it begins to
• make itself felt, but each individual
I has to find it out for himself in the
I school of experience; nor must he
hope by any argument to convince
those who have not yet learnt the lesson.
Thousands are now accustomed to take an an
nual holiday in the Alps, but most of these, hav
ing only a few short weeks at their disposal, stay
at a hotel. There are, however, many—and their
number ts ever increasing—who go out with
their families and spend the whole season in the
mountains, yet who grow weary of continual hotel
life, and seek after something that shall be not
only more independent but less expensive, for to
many the question of expense looms larger every
year. Such can hardly do better than take a fur
nished chalet in the hills. There are many such
to be found, and although rents tend to increase,
they cannot yet be said to be excessive.
Swiss have realized the fact that there is a grow
ing demand for well-appointed chalets in good sit
uations, so that many have recently been built and
others are being adapted.
Those thinking of taking such a chalet for the
winter months would be well advised to see that
it stands at an altitude of not less than 3,500 feet
above sea level. Should it be lower there will be
some risk of fogs from the plains and lakes ris
ing above it, and of wet mud taking the place of
firm, dry snow. It may be remarked id passing
that for housekeeping purposes It is useful to
choose a place within easy reach of some town
such as Montreux or Interlaken, though much
shopping is best done by post. If the house is
large it will sometimes happen that the owner will
retain a few rooms for his own personal use. In
this case he will almost always be glad to give
help whenever it is asked for. The average Swiss
village, let it be said, does not usually provide the
luxuries of a Capua, but the visitor will quickly
discover where to obtain everything that he needs.
He will soon find that his chalet can be managed
with remarkably little servant power. "Central
heating" may be called a necessity, and, in a
private house where the ventilation can be proper
ly attended to, it does not produce the stuffiness
that Is such an undesirable feature in so many
hotels.
"At Rome as at Rome" is a useful motto for
those who live away from their country. The
Swiss peasant has his own opinions and his own
way of looking'at life. Therefore, a visitor should
not be angry with him when he finds that he has
a fixed notion that all foreigners are semi-mil
lionaires. 1* it surprising that the villagers, be
ing intelligent if somewhat narrow and unedu
cated, should look upon the gens de séjour who
come from afar and live in nice houses, and, so
far as they can see, do no work whatever, as
almost Inexhaustible gold mines? They would
hardly be human if they did not use their oppor
tunities of making hay while the sun shines; only
it rests with each visitor to see that he does not
personally contribute an unreasonably large share
of the hay.
The dweller in hotels sees but one side of Swiss
character—the outside; for though the Swiss may
be business-like, he is emphatically not obsequ
ious by nature. On the contrary, he Is vigorously
Independent. The father of a large family will
be grateful to receive any crumbs from the rich
man's table, in the shape of discarded clothes for
the use of his boys, provided that they are offered
as from an equal to an equal, tor he is very sen
sitive. But in a short time one of the boys will
probably bring a basket of eggs "to thank mon
sieur and madame." The writer was once asked
to photograph some girls, and a few days later a
message came from the children's mother: "Might
she do some of the household washing free of
charge in return T' That is not such a bad kind
of independence! At least, it compares favorably
with a variety that la to be met with, which
thinks to show its independence in rough man
ners, but is not above taking everything it can get
without making any adequate return. Take him
all round, the Swiaa peasant la an interesting and
a good man to deal with. Suspicious at first, and
sensitive always, he responds warmly when be is
treated with tact and sympathy.
One of the very first questions that occur to a
possible chalet dweller Is; "Will there be plenty
of congenial society, or shall we be dull?" To
which the reply must be made that the amount of
society depends largely on tha place selected, and
Its nature on one's self. It Is always possible to
ascertain beforehand the number and sise of the
hotels in the village, and these may be looked
upon aa a fairly reliable Index of the visiting pop
ulation. Moreover, it has been the writer's ex
perience that hotel keepers, far from looking
askance at chalet dwellers, welcome them and
willingly allow them the use of their skating
rinks and toboggan runs on very moderate terms.
Many chalets are now built with an open fire
place in the drawing room, where cheerful wood
fires may be lighted. And, let it be remembered,
that tn most places, wood Is so plentiful that
within a few minutes' walk of the chalet sackfuls
of fir cones and armfuls of sticks and logs may be
collected; nor is it possible to exhaust the supply.
Yet in the daytime artificial heating can often be
dispensed with. Day after day the sun shines in
cloudless beauty, and it is possible to sit out on
the balcony reading hour after hour. So dry Is
the air that snow evaporates with the heat more
rapidly than It melts, so that unless the thaw be
very pronounced there is a total absence of
'slush." I-ast winter, a week of snow at the be
inning of December was followed by six weeks of

gave way in turn to a time
when snow and frost trans
formed the whole countryside
into a perfect fairyland.
The snow is crisp but not

raw, and everyone comes in
with the glow of health on
his countenance. Though it
is possible. to feel pleasantly
tired in such air after a! long
tramp or a big ski ing expe
dition, there is never a sen
sation of weariness. Here
and there in a sheltered cor
ner the sun will chase away
the snow, and almost instantly a few stray prim
roses and gentians—the forerunners of spring
will burst into flower. Even in December, if the
season be a mild one, they may be found. A lit
tle later, fields of delicate snowflakes are common
locally. With the lengthening days of February
and March, when the sun, rising higher In the
heavens, disperses the snow, every meadow and
pasture teems with the loveliest of flowers. There
seems to be no end to Nature's prodgality. Acres
and acres of cowslips, of a size and richness not
known to England, bloom uninterruptedly for
more than six weeks. Anemones, white and yel
low, large and small, thrive in the wildest pro
fusion; while In the woods, fragrant daphne is
followed by the wild lily of the valley. In many
places the pheasant eye narcissus grows as thick
as grass, and scents the while neighborhood. In

ENGUSH HOME OF 1272
In a fold of the Kentish bills, surrounded by
apple orchards and hop gardens, there stands a
humble building whose wails are eloquent of the
past, a writer in the London Globe says. It Is
almost the only one of its kind left standing—so
far as the exterior ts concerned—tn its entirety.
The adjoining land was granted to one of his
knights by Edward I. in 1272, and the most reli
able antiquarian opinion Is In favor of the house
having been built shortly after. Our knight, in
the matter of building, did not despise the record
of the past, for he adopted the Norman method,
then dying out, of placing his living rooms on the
second floor. This made for safety and the ground
floor apartments were simply windowless dun
geons and storerooms.
In those days they built for strength, and tbe
walls of Kentish rag are of great thickness, cal
culated to withstand the assaults of any quarrel
some neighbors, while the turret, which gives ad
mittance by a stone spiral staircase to tbe living
rooms above, is guarded top and bottom by mas
sive oaken doors, and is lighted by oyiets through
which a rain of arrows could be poured upon in
truders below. The main style of the building Is
that of the transition from early English to dec
orated. Oblong In form, it has gables north and
south, and at etther end of the long east wall Is
a square projection.
Ascending the stairs we find ourselves la a
room, of truly noble proportions, occupying the
length and breadth of this building, 21 feet by
18%, and lighted by windows east, west, north
and south. It is open to the roof, which contains
nearly, if not quite, ita original form, and has a
fireplace and an "ambrey" or cupboard In which
cooking and table requisites and aims for the
poor were kept. In this "aire" or altre" the fam
ily lived and worked, and here visitors and better
class retainers slept. Here, perhaps, from Ihe- •<.
beams supporting the roof hung the store of dried
provisions for winter use. and the herbs collected
by the squire's dame. „
It was here in tbe "aire" that, at even, the
family cohered round tbe firelight (candles were
expensive luxuries In those dnjrs) lo listen to
story of battle or chase. The windows were un
glazed, but glass might be fixed In tbe shutters,
the iron hook for which rtill remains Oaken set
ties did duty as seats by day pnd a t, resting places
at night and meals were served ou a board placed
on trestles—hence, perhaps, the phrase * the fes
tive besrd."
"Yes. I am," wae the reply.
"And I am a gentleman also."
Nothing more was said. The smoker
smoked on and the other sat dow n and
glanced at him from the corner of his
eye. When five minutes bad passed he
got up and said;
; "Sir, am I mistaken In supposing you
| to be a gentleman?"
"No, sir."
: "I am glad to hear you say so. I wlah
to again state the fact that I am a
gentleman myself."
He sat down with that and looked
while the smoker drew long puff» at
the '.last half of bis cigar. 1 fare* tnln
utes had parsed away, when the aeedy j
man, rore to Iris feet and somewhat In
dignhntly said: 1
up among the branches over his head, j
"Sir, I again demand to know if you
are a gentleman?"
'T'm sure of It," calmly replied the
other. /
"Then give me some evidence of the
fact."
"Here It Is!" aa he held out the
stub of the weed.

"Alps" appear »■ If sprinklwn with snow, but m a

visitors who carry away armfuls every day make

least heard of the fields of wild narcissi that ex
tend from Les Avsnts all the way Into the
Gruyeres country, and many have seen them; hut
not so many are aware that they may be seen In
numerous other districts of the Alps, In every
valley golden globe flowers grow In masses that
catch and reflect the sunlight while orchids and
lilies of many kinds and
colors vie with each

It will sometimes hap
pen that a late snowfall
will occur even In April
or May. The eal"t
dweller may come down to breakfast and find a
couple of feet of anow outside his windows While
he Is breakfasting, ihe sun rushes out from be
hind a neighboring ridge, and In an hour or two
there is no more snow. That same afternoon
roads and meadow# will be dry and flowers once
more Ann and upright. Soon It becomes too hot
to sit In the sun. That is the end of the whiter
season. .
For those who have become weary of the noise
and hurry and dirt of town life, what greater
change could be Imagined? It may be that there
will come a moment to the chalet dweller when
he will - feel, mingled with reluctance at leaving
the calm life of the mountains, a certain antici
patory Joy at the thought of returning once more
to the crowded day# of city life. Hut what of
that? It only means that the spell has worked
—that the cure la complete.
