In 1850, a man, still young, and of indifferent character, named Ram- bouillot, who curried on poaching with audacity and success, was surprised by the gamekeeper of a forest in tho llauto Manic. An information was laid against him, anil ho was brought bcforo the cor- rectional tribunal, condemned to the for- feiture of hi.s gun, to a lino, and even, I believe, to imprisonment.

To understand, however, the enormous labnr bestowed upon that portion of fcmnjc dress, it is necessary to seen trousseau in hand, and to see this, it is necessary to enter a convent. Nothing is cinior; the heads of religious houses arc only too Imp- py to admit strangers into their nwrtiirs or workrooms belonging to the orphanage in llio lirst because they nro generally ourtcons; in tho second, because they ro proud of tho exquisite needlework chiovi'd by their pupils underthcirroof. '.nd a tlur'cl reason must bo adduced for permission willingly accorded to for- igners provided with some kind of in- nxjiictinn: from nbiisliiCKSpointof view I is highly desirable that the c. tho rich should know where o go for troti'soiuix when itsdnughtors TO married. A marriage outfit, ab all athcrs of families know, is an oxcccd- ngly costly affair; and it is only likely hat in n Catholic country nil work of his kind, when accomplished within tho onvont walls, paid for well. Thus nl ho appointed lime, when the work comcu ionic, without n single long stitch, ovory jiirmonlnx perfect us needlework can Mnrno was invaded, and tho forest in which tho gamekeeper lived wnn occupied by tho Gorman troops. One December night Unmbouillet whom every one sup- posed to bo at n distance from the neigh- borhood, took his gun, slunk from trci. to tree though Ihe Germans occupied the forest, nnd at tho risk of being captured and shot, facing tho greatest jicrils, and resorting to tho most audacious strain- gems, creeping nlnmHon a level with the ground, be succeeded in reaching the gamekeeper's lonely cottage. There was a light in tho window, Tliogninckcopcr andhiswifo, lost in tho solitude, amid hostile troops, wore seated side by side. Knmbouillct watched them somo time through the clearing surrounding the collage. Tho gamekeeper remained mo- tionless beaiilo bin wife, in spilo of tho furious barking of his dog, for since the enemy had occupied the forest the dogs hud always harked every night, Kiim- bouillel raised Ills gun, took careful aim, and fired. Two despairing cries were uttered insido the collage, the dogs re- doubled their noise, all around distant cries of Woher wero heard, and Hnmboiiillcl hurried along Iho paths, escaped, and disappeared from tho district. Tho next day il WIIH told how tho Germans had killed tho gamekeeper's wife, anil all the neighborhood mustered lit, her funeral. Peace wns signed llnmuonlllcl re- sinned his former life.
