I saw distinctly the position of Louis
XVIII Marnuls do Plcssy had told mo
ke was a mass of superstition. No doubt
hi had behaved, as Ilellcngcr said, for
the good of tho royalist cause. Hut tho

Frenchmen, after yawning II months or

Jh.ir hats for tho dragon.
I never havo seen tho most stupid man

hoists him Into the saddle.
"Let us go further with our supposl.

I heard Madame do Ferrlor gasp.
Tho priest raised his eyebrows.
'In that case you will bo quite willing

"You havo given no ndequato reason

"I will give no reason. I simply de
