child, who never before had found any one able to
answer his innumerable questions? The fear which
had until now loed my lips was immediately disi-
pated.
Following always the ttreating ea, we reachd at

know not. I iul lot all eontroosneo s of time. I
ran from rok to rock, and I cried to M. d Bihorel

elated. I filled my pockets with a store of treasures

Suddenly lifting my eye, I culd no lonllr ee die
