In the afternoon Teg and James and I went for a walk in the town. Jaiiu's insisted on going into all the sho] S to look loiuid, and gmeially got something thrown at him, but he went on doing it all the same.

James filled up his time with a fight with four other dogs uiuler the office tahle, which nearly resulted in our l eing turned out altogether. Then we went along the Eoute de Toidouse to survey what sort of road we are going to have in the future. The hotel proprietress's husband came in to lielp us again, and got his fingers bitten during the operation ; 1 nit he was quite pleasant about it, and almost went so far as to say he liked it. We have had more people 78 The Voyage of the E scarf jot.

I have l een cleaning out the patent filter, which is a Work of some elaboration and patience, and involves coating one's self over with a good deal of different kinds of charcoal. James is sleeping in the stal le tonight. He is at present singing himself to sleep. Siuiday, Dec ' Joseph went to church at the cathedral this morning, and made inrpiiries for us, l ut reported that tiun-e is a Pi-otestant service here only once a-nionth.

The carpet liegan its old tricks this morning, but we settled the matter by taking it up altogether for the day, as it is as well to make some difference on Sunday. I don't think they quite know what to make of us ; indeed I fancy tliey are very much inclined to think that we are not all that we ought to be, as they can't understand people travel- ling in caravans with no ostensible object but to get in course of time to a certain far-distant place ; but for all that, they are very friendly, and Peg and I have picked up a lot of the colloquialisms of the country tliat we have never had any opportunity of learning yet, and may prove very useful to us hereafter.

In the afternoon we took James for a walk. The place was swarming with orphan establishments, all out walking- two and two in the greatest order and regularity, which James disturlied to a great extent by getting mixed up with the orphans' legs, and creating panics ; and we felt it our duty to chastise him summarily, if only to show that we weren't acconqilices in his evil doings.

He also had three fights with other dogs. We sat for some time on the river-bank, which was very peaceful : all the fishers had gone away for their holiday, and there was nothing to mar the natural beauty of the l road river rolling on between its banks except ourselves and one man in a boat of primitive con- striiction, in which he rowed backwards — that is, forwards 80 TJie Vvijafje of the E scar f jot.

We were going along on the other side when suddeidy a two- wheeled cart dashed past ns witli Jactjues Jjonlionnni', his wife, and all his own and his wife's sisters and consins and aunts crannned into it, not to sjteak of their children jammed into the interstices to complete tlie ] acking, all drawn l y one pony of small stature hut great heart. So we left them to get their cart and themselves home hy themselves.

We got home aliout. She is to be taken out for exercise to-moiiow if we don't get away. Muivhiji, l ir. Here we are still. We are beginning to feel just a little despondent over it, though for tlie most part resigned, and trying to forget our trouble by devising new occupations. I have bought a new clay pipe and have set to work to colour it.

I have also proposed to Peg that I shall take this oppor- tunity of growing a beard — I really began the day before yesterday, but it has not been absolutely necessary to mention it to her till to-day. She has, however, strenu- ously opposed herself to this proceeding. I think she is nnich mistaken, as I believe there are a lot of good Iierths I have failed to get by reason of my youthful appearance.

At present I must acknowdedge the effect is rather awful. AVe got through the daily morning round, and I put the old carpet down, and then sat on the footboard with my feet on the steps reading ' Westward Ho I ' and smoking and talking to the old gentleman on the plank opposite. Peg wrote letters.

James has attached himself very closely to the old gentleman, and spends most of the morning sharing his plank with him, as he f jund that was aljout the siinniest spot there was for him to sit in. We have been through what we have left, and have apportioned it out day by day, allowing for L 82 Tlie Voyage of the Escargot. If we don't leave on the 2Gtli, we sliall have to devise something else. AVe went for a stroll in the afternoon, intending to sit on one of the l enehes on the promenade overlooking the river, hut we found them all occupied by elderly retired laljourers of the town, so we only went a little way up the road along which we came in the otlier day, and then came l ack to tea.

James only fought two dogs to-day. We have written to Agen and Castelsarassin for any letters that may l e waiting for us there. The carpet has gone wrong again this evening. I have nailed it down to the floor at the end nearest the door. Mary Ann lias been eating a little better to-day, but not enough to justify a start.

I was all the morning coiitriving a movable driving-seat to put on the footboard, as we have found standing all the time when driv- ing is very tiring. I don't thiidv I have masticated my food so well for a long time. However our doubts were eventually ] roved t j l e unfounded, by my finding the needle in the cushion on which I was siltiii", and Our Sojourn at Marmande. James has heen very much depressed all day. Joseph recommended him a bran-mash.

We ludd another council of war this morning, and agreed that it would be better not to run things quite so fine if pos- sible, but try if some of the local bankers wouldn't advance us sonu' money on our letter of introduction and circular note ; or if not, send them on as a pledge of good faith to our banker at Toulouse, and ask him to forward us an instalment l y post.

Goodness gracious! I won- der what my bankers w juld say if they had heard him? Ikit possibly we might be able to do something with the Societe Generale. We went off to the Societe Generale, and said our story all over again, pointing out to the cashier whom we interviewed that my bankers were in correspondence with other of their branches in other towns ; and a little ray of hope dawned on us — we were remanded for in juiries till half-past four. We came home feeling something the same as a criminal must do while waiting for the verdict, and filled up the time in making a beefsteak-pie for dinner.

Joseph had c;one out fishinir. I think he is beo;innino; to understand 84 The Voyage of the Escargot. We got l ack to the l ank punctually at half-past four, and there our hopes met a crushing blow. A meeting of directors had been hastily sunnnoned, and, after much discussion, had decided that they couldn't change my circular note.

Nothing remained now l ut to write for a rcnfort to Toulouse. We composed a letter to the banker, perfect in grammar and idiom, put the circular note with it into one envelope, and the letter of introduction into another, so as not to put all our eggs into one basket, and then having, after a consider- al le hunt, and l y a great piece of good fortune, found the only Toulouse directory in Marmande, through the kind ofiices of tlie cafdier who had originally welcomed us on our arrival, addressed the two envelopes, and committed them, registered, to the care of the post.

If they are lost now, we sliall lie more up a tree than ever; Ijut we must hoi e for the l est. We got letters from Agen this afternoon which were sent there about a fortnight ago. For the news they gave us we might as well have l een in the Wild West of America, l ut they were very welcome all tlie same.

Siie was a pleasant-spoken woman ; Init their chief object in getting us to come in was that tiiey wanted us to make large ] urchas 'S of lace. It was certainly very nice-looking lace, as far as I am conq etent to judge of such things ; but there was a sort of latent irony al out it all, under our present cir- cumstances, that considerably tickled us. Our Sojourn at Mannande.

The main drawhack in this arrangement is that the person who sits on the inner side either has to go t j his place before the table is set up before and stop there till it is removed after the meal, or else climb over or creep under it when all tlie things are on it, both of which manceuvres are ratlier risky, the first being not unlikely to result in a kind of thunderbolt falling on the table, and the second in a sort of earthquake going off underneath it : still we think it is, on the whole, more convenient for two.

To-niglit Ijcing Christmas Eve, Marmande appears to have gone generally on the spree. Occasional revel- lers have been passing down our lane. I won't particularise too much ; but if, as they say, a Frencliman very seldom gets drunk, it must be acknowledged that when he does — say once a-year — he gets very drunk indeed. I am sorry to say the 86 The Voynge of the Escargot. AVe are just going to hear the midnight Mass. I must confess I was secretly ratlier pleased to see a young man take advantage of one of her longer sorties to cHml up and hand down over twenty of her chairs to his friends; and I think they all got away scot-free.

We st'ippi-d till the vei-y end : there was a fearful crush coming out. The night is heautiful: the rain has quite cleared oil', and the niooii is shining hrightly, which is a gofid thing. Our Sojourn at Marmande. We took a holiday to-day, except that I took up the old carpet and put it Ixick again into the fodder-box, as it doesn't seem that we are going to manage it anyhow. The other people in the lane took a holiday too : for the most part they, as did also the rest of Marmande, as we found when we went out for a little prowl round, spent the morn- ing in Ijed recruiting themselves, after their exertions last night, for further efforts in the afternoon and evening.

It was very plump and very good: Jose li called it a ;jrirr, which according to our dictionary means a thrusli ; but 1 don't thiidv it can liave lieeii that, t'ni- it tastcil more like what it looked — a kind of grouse. Our Sojourn at Marincnule. James was particularly iniquitous to-day : he would chase dl the children we met to take their Christmas cakes from them ; and when we had at last broken him of that, he went into all the groceries one after the other, and walked leisurely round looking at everything, as if we had all the money we wanted and had told him to choose himself a Christmas box ; and when the grocer chased him out, and I went after him to chastise him, he got between an old lady and the wall, and began to roll him- self up in her carefully preserved silk dress, till he nearly upset her, and she began to call for help, and we were afraid we should have the police down on us.

Of course we apologised in our very best French ; and James came home fastened by his collar to my handkerchief, and after being well punished, was given two hours' imprisonment in the stables till dinner, when we let him out because it was Christmas-day. Peg has developed a toothache this evening ; Joseph has, it is getting almost needless to state now, recommended a bran-mash.

I did most of the cooking, therefore, this even- ing. The piece of resistance of our Christmas dinner was a sweetljread : by the way, we had a little adventure getting that this afternoon, as when we got to the butcher's we could neither of us recollect the French for sweetbread, and when I made a shot at iiain sucrd, he politely referred us to the baker. However, fortunately, just then we perceived one hanging up in a corner, so we got what we wanted by pointing at it.

Then we had beefsteak and onions, though the beefsteak was really only a rib. Either the whole family has gone out, or else to bed leaving him to repent his youthful errors in the cold outside. Tliiirsdaij, Dec. I'ooi- r. I did all the cookinn' to-day, — cevfs d la jdat ior luncli, and fried cutlets with ] otatoes and carrots, and rice pudding, for dinner; and thougli I say it that perhaps shouldn't, I think I liave all the materials of a first-class chef in nie.

I spent most ol the rest of the day making out my chart of the road, which I have finished, and in the evening altering the curtain of our hed-chamher into a sliding one by means of a thick piece of wire twisted threefold to make a rod. I must try and think out some way of remedying this. Peg is all right again ; so is Mary Ann.

Our rcnfort arrived this nKjrning ; and we would have started again to-day, only that the weather has been such that we were afraid that if we did, Mary Ann might get another chill, and we should have all the same Ijother jver again ; so we thought it l est not to run any risk, and give her another day this side of recovery, and so haA'e i ut oft' our departure till to-morrow morning.

It was a very private bank indeed, and it was a long time before I could find any one who knew the way to it. The hank was situated in an ordinary-look- ing villa sort of residence, standing Ijack ahout a himdred yards from the road: the office itself was rouiul at the hack of the villa in the ]ilace where one would have expected the sculleiy to he: indeed it looked, w'hen one had got inside, very sus] i iously like a converted scullery. The young man, who turned out to he a]x ut sixty years old — I suppose the old lady's estimate of his age was a relative one, hased on her own — was expecting me.

Iose]ih for one ] rice, we fail to set; why he should ehai'je us a higliei' one for exactly the. Just Our Sojouvn at Marmaiuh. We didn't go out much all day, Init sat waiting, and looking at the barometer, though we had ] retty well made up our minds that we couldn't start.

Joseph occu] ied the time in writing a letter to his people at lumie, which he brought and showed us with great pride. I don't think it will be Ijetraying confidence to say that it was exceedingly gratifying to find amongst other items, more or less family matters, that Joseph was very content with us as his master and mistress. Joseph went out shopping for us in the latter part of the afternoon, and took my mackintosh: this is the first time it has been in use since we started, and I regret to say that, from being kept in a continuous state of 1 eing folded up, it has developed some very serious holes : Joseph nearly lost himself in the lal yrinth, and, in his struggles to extricate himself from them, only extended and added to them.

After tea I took my turn in it, and had literally to wind it round and round me to make any efficient use of it : the right arm has become quite a distinct garment from the rest. I went to the post-office to take some letters which Peg had managed to finish off in the intervals of looking at the barometer; and then to a stationer's, to Iniy some envelopes. When I was going to pay for them, I found to my horror that I must have left my purse at the post-office : there was not much in it.

I have al. The olay pipe is heginning lo colour luile resperta! AVe finished the last of our six boxes of wax-matohes which we brought from England, this morning, and have btiMi forced to fall back on the French variety.

Society lia. We have given Josepli the alarum again, and are I'ctiring early — I hav ; just looked out ; the sky is 1 leaking a little, so there are some hopes f jr t j-morrow. We saw. Tosepli, while we wt-re waitiiiLr. AVe liad no room to turn in the lane, so we had to go right up to the other end, where it got wider, to do so, then came l ack down it, waving our adieux as we passed to our friends of the last few days, and so out into tlie street, where the eafdicr and the proprietress of the Hotel de France and her husband were standing at the corner to see us pass, and along to the market-place.

AVe passed another caravan also making its way out of the town, and so jn left it far behind : the fog still continued, though occasionally there was a faint gleam of sun ; but the roads were hard after the frost, and for the most part slightly descending again, and without many stones so far, and tlie mares were ste] ping out well, and quite of their own accord. At Faugerolles, ten kilometres, which we did in a very little over the iiour, we pulled up for a moment to put the couvcrtures straight, which we had kept on the mares for greater precaution, and which were slipped all to one side : somewhat to our alarm, Mary Ann was beginning to wheeze again slightly.

It is just the sort of thing that one can't get any one to believe when one has got a horse that one wants to sell him. The fog lifted a little, and we Ijegan to see more of the country round, which was very Hat. Faugerolles appears to be a happy place: I shall go and live there some day when I want a spell of almost per- fect rest. We oflered him a lift, but he declined with many thanks, as he said he shouldn't gain anything by getting to his destination before the appointed hour, and indeed an in- [uiry miglit be started as to how he had managed to do it, and he might get into trouble, so we wished him good-bye, and left him.

The road all the way to Tonneins was very flat, and the stones were only bad for the last two or three kilometres, and then our wheels went for the most part wide of them. We drove up a pretty avenue of chestnuts into the town, and pulled up on an open space in front of the Hotel de Xord for lunch. The sun made his final burst through the fog at that moment, and didn't go in again till he set. It was a little after noon, and we had come eighteen kilometres, which was an average of six an hour, — not bad with a doubtful mare.

We stopped at Tonneins for nearly two hours. The mares ate well: we gave Mary Ann warm water to drink to loosen the phlegm on her chest. We left Tonneins by going round outside it. Tonneins is a great Protestant centre, and has a very handsome Temple, which we passed on our way out. AVe went down a steep hill, and the prospect was now prettier : the Garonne lay below us to the right, and not very far away to the left were hills, with a picturesque old castle on one of them.

Then we gradually edged away from tiie Garonne along the undulating ground of the Lot valley, still keeping up our average of about six kilometres an hour, which tlie mares did quite of their own free will and without any pressing, tlnough Ayet and Nicole, both pretty little villages on the Lot, tlie road being variable, with stones, as before, generally pretty thick in the neighbour- hood of the villages ; and at a few minutes after four we came to a very steep bridge, up which we climbed, and running down on the other side, came to Aiguillon : twenty- nine kilometres to-day.

Aiguillon is built on a very steep hill, the old castle being at the top, and the main street descending to the river-bank, something like AVindsor. The lower part of the town here must have sufl'ered severely during the great Hoods, for we saw tin- lluod-nuirks on the walls of some of the houses lialf- way up tlie first-lloor windows.

We stopped at the bottom to tiT for stables, l Ut a blacksmith whom we hailed told us there was iKjthing in that part of the town which would suit us ; so we went at the hill, and went up it at one run, first to Toiuteins to Casteharas. The aulicrgiste, a broad - shouldered, good-natured-looking imysan, came out with his two stalwart sons, all clad in the long blouses and Icrris of the district, and welcomed us, helping us to take the mares out and lead them away to the stal le, which is really a cave dug out in the side of the hill below their garden, and approached through their kitchen and second-best bedroom.

However, the mares seem very comfortable there, and it seems perfectly dry. We are drawn up l y the side of the road opposite the auhcrgc ; the auhergiste says we shan't be interfered with by the police, and we see no reason to doubt him, for we are only one of a long line of vehicles, this seeming to be the public livery -yard of Aiguillon.

Peg and I and James went out shopping, and bought a leg of mutton for our Sunday dinner: it cost four francs, whicli, even allowing for the usual premium on our nationality, is the dearest we have had to pay yet. Aiguillon is rather a curious old town, rather important, I believe, in the middle ages, and there is a sort of medieval air hanging about it still in its narrow streets, quaint old town-hall on arches, and queer old town pump, with a pendulum handle with a weight at the end which one has to swing backwards and forwards across the face of the pump to get the water.

I won't bo sure exactly — coining with a luige army to besiege them, and swearing a terrible oath that he wonkl not leave till he had taken the town : bnt he didn't take it ; and so ] y rights he onght to be here still. AVe think that he has Imcii spoilt tor some little time to come by his comfort- alilc lesidnicL' at.

Anvhow he considered it his Tonneins to CasteUarassiu. The ground this morning was one sheet of white, and snow was still falling; and so, as there seemed a possibility of our being eventually snowed up, and Aiguillon didn't strike us as being a particularly pleasant place to select for such an experience, we hardened our hearts, and made up our minds to break through the rule we had laid down for ourselves not to travel on Sunday. Joseph was quite willing, as he was still strongly prejudiced against the auhcrgidc and his family, so we huriied through our morning preparations as speedily as possible, and got away a little after eight.

Our stable bill certainly was higher this morning than it has been yet, by eighty centimes ; but maybe everything is dearer in Tlie Voytaje of the Escavgot. I had to retill the cistern this morning before we started, and fcnmd that the tap which supplied our part of the town was constructeil on a new and somewhat mistaken principle — viz. There was a lower tap some little distance back along the road, and then the pipe followed the upward incline till it got to our tap, the latter being some ten or twelve feet higher than the first, so that of course if any one was tilling a bucket at the lower tap, no one could get a drop of water at the upper one till the other man had turned off his tap and the water had had time to mount up to the higher level by its own pressure ; and as often as mil.

I pointed this out to another man wlio had come to the higher tap at the same time as I had. He wasn't convinced, liMWi'Ncr. The weather was looking a little Ijetter when we started. There was a steep hill down a little way out of the town, and then the road became fiat again, with snow-clad hills in the distance. The sun came out, and shone on the wliite country, and I think it was the prettiest sight we have seen yet.

AVe crossed the railway, and turned to tlie left along for some way till the rising ground closed in on us again : then we went along the side of the hill, with the slopes covered with snow coming down to the road on the left, and the Lot on the right, which was canalised here, with straight rows of poplars on each side of tlie two tow-paths.

Porte Ste Marie is a pretty little town on the side of the hill, looking particularly clean and white to-day by reason of the snow-covering it had all over it. AVe stopped there for lunch, as we found St Hilaire would be too uneven a break in the day's journey, putting up at the Hotel de I'Europe — a rather superior-looking little hotel wdtli a picturesque porch and verandah, very like an old-fashioned English country inn — on the avenue leading into the town.

Tlie snow sto[ ped altogetlier while we were waiting there: it had not been coming down more than ten or twelve flakes at a time all the morning, but we could dispense very well with even that small amount. The in- habitants all tied into their houses, and peeped out from their doors and windows to see the accident come off; but we got away safely at last, and went along at a good pace again, the road continuing, as before, along the side or at the foot of the hills to our left ; and away in the distance on the right we could see the hills on the other side of the valley of the laronne, all as pure white as the rest of the landscape.

Stones as before. We passed Frontac, on the Garonne, a typical little village, with its church, and its well, and its Cafe de Commerce, pre- cisely on the pattern of all the other villages ; and then the road, which had been pretty undulating all day, became more so, and we had to reduce our pace.

Stopping for a Idow at the top of one very sleep though short asceni, in front of a solitary little roadside cafr, we came upon a large jiarty assembled of young ] easants with their sweethearts, who iniin ;diately surrounded us with shouts and interchanges ul rustic chalV, thinking that a good opportunity had come in their way tor the bestowal and reception of fairings.

AVe met with some trifling reproach for having thus raisetl their Tonneins to Castclsarassin. Then the road became flat again — keeping along the canal, which ran along here at a considerably higher level than we were — and terribly stony, so that we dropped to a walk altogether.

Peg sat in the door of the Escargot on one of the folding-chairs and drove, while Joseph and I walked along- side the mares' heads talking to them. James ran on in front for a hundred yards or so, then came back, and then ran on again, thereby increasing the length of his day's journey by quite two-thirds more than it need have been, and all the while bristling with expectation and in prepara- tion for a light ; but as no other dogs appeared, he wasted his energies in this respect also.

We passed St Hilaire, a long, straggly place, the larger portion of it lying on the other side of the canal, which here, by means of locks, had climbed down to a lower level ; and Colognac, where we came on all the good people coming out of church, including the music, which consisted of a bassoon. The dear old curd was surrounded by his flock, to whom he was no doubt giving good advice, and perhaps, good old man, something more substantial out of his slender pittance.

It was a subject worthy of a picture. Ajjjeii, kilometres from liordoaux : to-day's journey a little over twenty-nine. There was a steep bridge to mount over the railway — quite a rarity in France ; and even here I don't think they would have departed from their usual system, more economi- cal even if more dangerous, of a level crossing, if it had not been that the bridge crossed over the canal too.

Then we had to climb up on to the promenades, which run round the town, answering to the boulevard of the ordinary French town, aiul much, if not exactly, the same thing; but I be- lieve from what we gathered while asking the way to the staliles from some of the inhabitants, that the Agennais are ratluT touchy about people calling their promenades by any other name.

It is the best stable we have had yet ; the floor is bricked and ] roperly drained, and there are hanging partitions between the horses that scjiarate them from each other much more ellectually than the usual temporary pole. AVe are drawn up by the side of tlie promenades in front of the arch into the stable.

Tiiere is a theatre and two market-places, one old, with colonnades running round it, evidently the old centre of tlic town, the streets immediately leading out of it being Very narrow, with the hotises visibly inclining towards each othrr at the lo]i, and very primitive and dirty, in fact re- markalily like Seven Dials before the recent improvements.

The old brig-and with the curious pair has come up with us again, and put up at the same stables. He made a most barefaced attempt to annex our second stable lantern which we bought at Marmande fair this evening, declaring he had taken his into the stable, and as ours was the only one there, that must l»e it. He waxed positively violent over it, and when I eventually perceived his lantern hanging down from the shaft on the farther side of his cart, as it stood outside us on the promenades, and showed it to him, he didn't amend his language very much even then.

We only made half a day of it to-day, as we first had to wait to have the mares shod, which they were beginning to want, after all the hard roads and stones they have come along, and then when they were ready, Mr James was nowhere to be found : when last seen he was talking to some not over- respectable dogs whose acquaintance he had made on the promenades, and it was sup]:»osed that he must have accepted their invitation, without asking our permission, to walk round and see something of the town.

There was a skin-dresser's shop next door to the huvdte attached to our staljles, and Joseph threw out dark hints as to the possibility of James having been beguiled in there and made away with for the sake of his coat ; but we thought that could hardly have hap- pened without his letting us know, so dismissed the horrible idea from our minds, and organised ourselves into three parties to thoroughly scour the town in search 6f him.

Peg walked for some distance back along the way we had come in yesterday ; Joseph took the one half of the town itself, and I the other. I don't think I left a street unsearched The Voyage of the Escargot. We all reassembled about an hour and a half later, but nobody hail anything to report, and we were very nearly beginning to think that Joseph must be right after all, or if not exactly so, as far as that James had been stolen by some one, and we should never see our poor scamp again ; and I was just starting off on a last search, befoje putting the matter in the hands of the police — for we had resolved that we would stop at Agen, at any rate till we were certain that there was no hope — when suddenly looking back along the promenades, to where a sort of short canal ran up, forming a rid ijf sac at right angles to them, I saw ]Mr James ajipear for a moment on the bank of this canal round the corner of a house, gambolling in all unconsciousness of the anxiety he had been causing us, with a big wolf-hound with whom he appeared to be on the highest terms of friendship.

I ran after them, calling and whistling with all my might : James's conscience no doubt struck him at that moment, and he and his friend instantly disappeared round the corner. I ran still faster, and when I turned the corner, there was James running away as hard as he could, trying to explain to his fiiend, who was running alongside of him, his reasons for doing so: I ran even still faster — I didn't think I could ever s] rint like that, and 1 really doubt if I shall ever be able to Tonneins to Castdsarassin.

James evi- dently now saw how hol- low these hastily-struck- np friendships often are, and that it was better to come back to his bid and better tried alliance, cost what it temporarily might ; so he sat himself deliberately down in the centre of the path and waited till I had come up to him, when he cowered on the ground, looking up at me piteously and entreating me not to be too hard on him.

I took him by the collar and led him back to where Peg and Joseph were coming along behind to meet us, and then we all returned to the Escargot. The rejoicing- there over the returned prodigal was great, but it was slightly tempered with a little judicious chastisement.

It was really only a matter of five minutes' work, with a ladder and a gimlet, to make a new hole in the rafter for the staple, but the man wanted to chariie us three francs for it. I offered to do it TJtc Voyage of the Escarcjot. We got away in the end, after lunch, at 1. AVe left Agen through the promenades, then round behind the statue of Joan of Arc, and so out.

There was no view, as it has been so foggy all day. The road was worse than ever, and all uphill for the first part of the journey, then flat, but still with a slight inclination to ascend. We have been going along most of the day with the hills to f ur left, then the road, then the canal, then the railway, then the Garonne, all running alongside in parallel lines, the Garonne in this part being about as wide as the Thames at London Dridge : the other Itaidc, as far as we could see for the fog, was very flat.

Sliortly after that we crossed the railway and the canal, and the fi'ontier into Tarn et Garonne. The proprietress wanted to make us undertake to pay extra stahling on account of the size of our mares, but we firmly resisted her demands, and threatened to go on even to Castelsarassiu to-night if she persisted in her extortionate demands, so she has given in on that point.

Perhaps she was partly justified in trying to get us to pay something more than the usual price at the first onset, as there has been a great run on her stables, there being a lot of people on the move just now, going to spend New-Year's day in their family circles ; and two or three have rather demurred to our mares sharing the stables with their beasts, as they seem to be afraid of some cannibal propensities on their part.

However, Joseph and I have built in our part of the stables with a construction of hurdles and poles and rope, completely surrounding our mares, which I haven't a doubt they could kick down in a moment if they chose ; but it has an appear- ance of security which has pacified the fears of the other owners, and none of them have eventually gone elsewhere, as the old lady seemed to fear they would.

We are beginning to run short of money again, our expenses having somehow considerably exceeded our esti- mate, and in spite of our rcnfort at jMarmande, which we thought would carry us through to Toulouse comfortably, wdiat with the high prices at Aiguillon, and the shoeing and damages at Agen, and other unforeseen things like that, we are now reduced to thirty francs again, all told.

With rigid economy, however, I think we can do it. Tuesday, Dec. The Missus took her turn at frightening us this morning, by breaking out into slight swellings about the legs : the garcon, p Tlw Voynge of the Escargot. S" we set out at S.. AVe passed several caravans C7i route, or at anchor by the side of the road every now and then, this being the time for fairs, when there are a great many such people on the move from place to place.

One that particularly struck us for its simplicity, not to speak of the ingenuity of its proprie- tor, was drawn by two dogs and the proprietor's wife, he himself sitting on the step in front leisurely smoking his pipe. And we have passed to-day more vehicles of every sort and size on the road than we have ever done before, all full up to tlie brim with happy-looking holiday folk bound to their respective paternal roof-trees to celebrate the beginning of the Xew Year.

They all saluted us with best wishes for the anniversary, and their dogs — for they most of them had dogs in attendance — exchanged compliments with James, who seemed to know that now is a time for universal good-fellow- ship, and laid aside the warlike demeanour which he has l een displaying the last two days.

Joseph suggested fomenting the Missus's legs with vinegar when we stopped for lunch, so we tried the experiment for the first time of lighting the stove while in motion, in order that we might have the vinegar ready hot directly we stopped; but it was a signal failure, and only resulted in a general disarrangement of soot and smoke all about the interior of the caravan, so we had to desist for fear of suffocation, and we shan't try to do it again.

We reached Malauze at eleven, and put up at the Cafe Boulet, in the stable of a very pleasant grandmotherly old party wlio cultivated pigs and turkeys, and who came and chaffed Joseph and me somewhat unmercifully while we were The Voyage of the Escargot.

Joseph is almost as keen an advocate for tliicid as for a bran-mash on all occasions, and as, so far as I can find from Youatt, it doesn't do either any harm or any good, I have usually indulged him in this respect. Joseph had laid his hat down just on tlie other side of her, and most of the bottle poured straiglit into that. James, meanwliile, having tried to get the pigs and turkeys to jday with him, and failed, went ofl' for a walk round the village. I generally have to superintend the horses, while Peg cooks the luncheon, so we only get the most superficial view of places.

We left Malauze at one. So we had to ] ress tifty centimes on her, which was the utmost she would take, and she paid us the Tonneins to Casteharassin. AVe did it surreptitiously, the day before yesterday afternoon, out of the back windows as we came along, for fear of hurting Joseph's feelings. We had a steep clindj up all at one go till we had mounted another feet by the barometer ; we unfortunately liadn't kept account of how high we had come up before lunch; and then we had a splendid view down below us of the junction of the Tarn and the Garonne, both rivers with thickly wooded banks, and gradually approaching their meeting-place at an obtuse angle to each other through a fertile plain with large patches of forest dotted about it ; and away in the distance beyond the plain lofty snow-covered mountains, probably offshoots of the Pyrenees.

Now at last, after twenty kilometres climbing up, we began to descend very slightly till we came to Moissac, and then we crossed the Canal de Midi, and at last turned to the right and due south, in which direction we are going to continue till we get to Toulouse, when we shall be sixty kilometres nearer the sun, and we trust sincerely out of these perpetual fogs.

From Moissac to Castelsarassin the road lay as straight as it could go, and as flat as it could lie, taking no advantage to itself and giving none to the mares, for the whole of the intervening seven kilometres.

There were some stones, but the road was for the most part good ; but the worst of it was, that we never seemed to be coming to the end of it. Tonneins to C st 'Is ris. The town is wonderfully piiet, but Peg says the Prench don't as a rule trouble tliemselves about the year that is going out : they have got tired of that, and are only thinking about the new toy, so to speak, to come. Twelve has just struck. A happy Xew Year to every one! Wcilncs lajf,Jan. It lias been a miserably wet day all day : poor Peg was in bed all this morning with neuralgia ; not altogether unconnected, perhaps, with the good old New Year's Eve custom of sitting up last night : Joseph has been on the sick- list all day with a bad bilious lieadache.

Tlie mares, how- ever, have been quite well ; the Missus's legs are again reduced, by constant cold water and vinegar bandaging, to their normal size. I went out in the morning in the rain with James to make a preliminary survey of Castelsarassin. Its chief constituent parts are one long narrow street up from one end of the town to the other, and another long narrow street down back again, with little alleys interjoining the two ; and to tlie right of the down street a large square with houses on two sides, the Cathedral on the third, and the boulevard, which runs right round the town, on the fourth.

The houses all look more or Finlian to Toulouse. This may, however, be only a fancy of my own, based on the de- rivation of tlie town's name, favoured by some antiquarians, from its foundation by the Saracens ; and I must own I am rather prejudiced in that direction, as I always had a very strong predilection for that fine old race of warriors.

The other derivation is Castel-sur-Azin, the Azin being a little stream running somewhere through or close to the town. The paving in all the streets was the best and the most com- fortable to walk on that I have yet seen in any town we have passed through, consisting of long round pebbles set into the ground with their upper surfaces ground down flat, so that one doesn't run that constant risk of twisting one's ankle that one does over ordinary foreign cobbles ; as well as being the prettiest to look at, the stones being most artistically arranged in white diamonds point to point all along and across the streets on a black ground.

The streets were very quiet, the people, I suppose, being all driven to celebrate their Joitr de Van indoors on account of the weather : all the people we met in the course of our walk were one lame man singing a very lugubrious dirge in praise of the Xew Year who asked for a sou, and one old man with no teeth who asked me the time.

There were several dogs wandering about, however, in a purposeless sort of way, a good many of whom James invited home to lunch. In tlie afternoon Peg came out for a little turn, and we went to see the Catliedral. It is not a very beautiful speci- men of architecture, Ijeing something like a Methodist chapel witli a cathedral lantern on the top. James perpetrated a most uncalled-for assault on a little girl, who was not even carrying cakes, and knocked her down ; and when we went to pick her up slie seemed to be more frightened than com- forted by our appearance; and no coa.

There is an awful pumi in our immediate neighbourhood, which whenever it is used is enough to wake the dead. It began at five o'clock this morning, and has l een going on at intervals nearly ever since, though the odd thing was that we were never in time to see anybody actually at it : and we weic aliiio. We find from Joseph that the hotel pro- prietor and his wife have the reputation of not being quite all tliere, which may account for his rather strange manner when we arrived last night.

They both experienced a severe mental shock when their stable adjoining their hotel was burnt out three months ago, and have never got over it ; the stable has never been rebuilt either. However, they are most kindly disposed people, and have been very good to Joseph, who has been spending most of his time on an arm- chair in front of their kitchen fire. We have had further demands on the common purse to- day, as we have run out of corn and bran, and we have only nine francs left now.

The situation at present is fast getting pleasantly exciting : we have overliauled the larder and put ourselves on rations ; but if we don't get to Toulouse on the day after to-morrow, we shall have to solve the problem of how to live on nothing a-day, and save something out of that for emergencies. However, we have all sworn to stick by each other to the last, and if the worst comes to the worst, we can perhaps make shift to work our way along with James's three tricks ; and when I was younger, I used to sing a song the last verse of which was given standing on my head, besides that somewhat perilous trick of sitting on a AYindsor chair, and going right backwards chair and all on to the floor, without being supposed to hurt one's self ; both of which I think I might be able to do still if I were put to it, and might bring in some assistance of a pecuniary or other nature — but I think I should keep the chair-trick for TJte Voyage of the Escargot.

Peu could go round with the hat. As we are always being taken for a show, why not turn it to some account? There are revellers singing the Marseillaise in the distance going about the town somewhere, but there is a want of fervour about their sentiments, which is probably caused by the rain.

James has just woke out of a troubled sleep and mistaken my foot for a rat. He is now rubbing himself in the corner by the door. TJuirsdaii, Jan. It rained very hard all last night, and was pouring still when Joseph came round this morning at six to call us, apolo- gising for not having come at four ; and it was pitch-dark too, so we told him to go back to bed, but he only went to harness the mares. Joseph has lieen constantly trying to impress on us every day as we go along that the proper way for us to travel is to get up at four, or at latest five, in the morning, and make an early stait, and so, l y having plenty of time before us, be aide to go always at a walk, under which conditions we could do much greater distances every day ; but partly owing to our own, no doubt in Joseph's eyes, ridicu- lous notion that a pleasure excursion is to be treated as a pleasure excursion, and not as a journey to lie got through at all hazards or sacrifices in tlu; shortest possible time, and partly, indeed not altogether by any means the lesser part, owing to Joseph never appearing when the morning comes till seven o'clock himself, and often not till half-past, he lias n!

This morning was the neai'est he has ever got to it ; and then, wdien we were at last ready to start, a little after eight, he dawdled so over the last finishing touches to the harness, that we didn't actually get of]' till close upon nine. Perliaps, Finlian to Toulouse. The jarcon of the stables came across to be paid, with his little dog, whom we recognised as one of James's guests of yesterday ; but he had evidently been on the spree the night before, and presented a most disreputable stop-up-all-night appearance, with the torn and draggled remains of a yellow Vandyked paper-collar hanging round his neck.

I never saw a dog so distinctly suffering from a headache. James, the Pharisee, would have nothing to say to him, but sat at the top of the steps, and sniffed in a most contemptuous manner. AVe paid him for the stabling, but he wanted a franc more, so I offered to take back one of the two francs I had given him, and give him a two-franc piece instead, to which he demurred, saying that he wasn't going to be cheated out of what he had honestly come by already.

I represented to him that we didn't owe him two francs more — to which he assented — and if I gave him the two francs, and he gave me back one franc, it would be the same as if I gave him one franc ; but he couldn't see that : he would take the two- franc piece, but he wouldn't give up what he had already got. I then proposed that we should leave the fact of my having given him the first two francs out of the question altogether, and suppose that I only owed him one franc, and wanted change for a two-franc piece, at which he ex- claimed, " Oh, it's change you want, is it?

Then we said good-bye to the host and hostess of the hotel and left. It had stopped raining when we started. Then we continued at a pace varying between half-speed and a walk, through St Porquier and Escatalens, both little villages of no groat significance, the country round being very flat right away to the spurs of the Pyrenees in the right, and some other hills in the left distance.

The weather was very misty still, though the sun was making more and more successful ellbrts to break out, and at last, about mid-day, did so effectually. Tiiere were a large number of birds about here, rooks, and a host of other smaller species, and Joseph waxed very en- thusiastic on the opportunities afforded here for the chase, saying that he had no doubt that this was a great country for sportsmen ; and, sure enough, just before we reached Finlian, we met a gentleman attired in all his glory of hunting- cap, velvet coat, top-boots, French horn, network game-bag, and gun, and enough dogs to make u] a respect- able pack of beagles, whicii, if they were not actually, they very strongly resembled.

To our minds it couldn't Ik; anything less tlian a wild Ijoar, Ijut he very soon satisliod oui- iloubts liy suddenly tuining aside ofl" the road, thi'owing him-clf on to one knee with his gun at the present, and, afu-r taking deliljerate aim of quite two minutes, Idazing iiilo a Hock of s] arrows who were feeding on the gi'ound.

Fill] I an to Told oil se. We stopped for lunch at a small outlying farm of Finhan, which itself lies to the right of the main road. However, nobody seemed to bear us any grudge. A young man, who was wheeling a barrow to the main road, seeing that we were in some degree embarrassed with the carriage of our varied and somewhat unwieldy purchases, gave them a lift, all except the eggs, which I kept for greater safety in my pocket, and we were followed by a curious and friendly crowd, come to find out wdiere we had appeared from in this rather mysterious manner ; they having, as one of them informed us, knocked off work for the time being for their drjcuner.

They were nice-looking people, most of them, and seemed to be smaller than most of the villagers we have seen yet : probably we shall find them so as we get farther south. Then they stood on the ground on front while we lunched ; and an old grey-bearded man, who acted as chief s] okesman, told us all about the attractions of their neighbourhood. Why would we not stop there some time, and they would do their best to make us content? We were almost tempted to stop, and if it had only been better weather, and we could have devised some means, which miglit have been done, for settling our money dilhculty, very likely would have stopped ; but we thought it better on the whole to decline this very flattering invitation, "We have never met witli such a reception yet, so we promised to stop next time we came along; and then, wlien we had linished lunch, we had u general shaking hands all round, and left them all waving tlieir hats and hands to us till we passed out of their sight round a Ijend in the road.

We had a capital road all the way to Grisolles. It was mostly collar-work, indeed, but no stones; and tlie sun came out bright and warm, and cheeretl the mares' spirits, so tliat ihey Ijrought us nearly the whole way at a trot. Tlie type of village is changing a little now as we get south, the houses l cing built more suitably for long spells of hot weather.

A little before reaching Grisolles we passed the Montauban road branching off to the left: Joseph's birthplace, and he is very Finlian to Toulouse. We reached Grisolles at 3. We have put up in front of the Hotel de Lion d'Or. The stables are very nice, and well ventilated. Joseph has different ideas about ventilation to mine, and prefers no air at all, as we have found French drivers do as a rule. We have been strolling about the town all the afternoon, but have found nothing of any very great interest, except a bowling-alley, where I had a friendly game with the maire, who is also an undertaker in private life, and others, I pre- sume, of the corporation.

That is rather Peg's fate. I have never known her talk to the most complete stranger for ten minutes without at least finding out what the stranger's great-grandmother's Christian name was. James has met with a sad accident to-day.

I went back and found he liad got it under the wheel, and it has been most fearfully crushed ; so I carried him to the caravan and lifted him in and put some vaseline on the wounded paw ; and he has been lying on a mat close to the bed ever since, licking it, and gently moaning.

However, he hasn't lost his appetite, and his licking will probably do it as much good as anything we can do. Only four francs left ; but we have a magnificent potato- pie and a good lot of vegetables to carry us through to Toulouse. We are going to bed early, however, to make a really early start for once, and try and save a meal that way.

Friihiij, Jan. We felt our way through the silent town, and then got on to what felt like a very bad bit of road ; or perhaps it may have been that we felt it more in the dark, and besides, the mares, perhaps a little frightened at the novel circumstances, were stepping out at what seemed to be even a better pace than usual ; but anyhow, we had put off breakfast till after we started, and we now found taking our meal was attended with some diliiculty.

Zoo amphitheater turnpike troubadours torrent In the afternoon Peg and I took a walk round tlie town : the streets are very narrow, with some very ] ictnresque old timlier-houses here and there, and there is a Cathedral with a fine partly-ruined cloister ; the old lady in charge couldn't tell us tiie date for certain, l ut said any- how it was long hefore her motlier couldn't remend er, which seemed as if it nnist he some considerahle time back.
