� The next morning she started for the Riviera. She was proceeding thither via Toulouse, Carcassonne, Narbonne and the coast. To Martin鈥檚 astonishment F茅lise was accompanying her, on a visit for ten days or a fortnight to the South. It appeared that the matter had been arranged late the previous evening. Lucilla had made the proposal, swept away difficulty after difficulty with her air of a smiling, but irresistible providence and left Bigourdin and F茅lise not a leg save sheer churlishness to stand on. Clothes? She had ten times the amount she needed. The perils of the lonely and tedious return train journey? Never could F茅lise accomplish it. Bigourdin turned up an Indicateur des Chemins de Fer. There were changes, there were waits. Communications were arranged, with diabolical cunning, not to correspond. Perhaps it was to confound the Germans in case of invasion. As far as he could make out it would take seventy-four hours, forty-three minutes to get from Monte Carlo to Brant?me. It was far simpler to go from Paris to Moscow, which as every one knew was the end of the world. F茅lise would starve. F茅lise would perish of cold. F茅lise would get the wrong train and find herself at Copenhagen or Amsterdam or Naples, where she wouldn鈥檛 be able to speak the language. Lucilla laughed. There was such a thing as L鈥橝gence Cook which moulded the Indicateur des Chemins de Fer to its will. She would engage a man from Cook鈥檚 before whose brass-buttoned coat and a gold-lettered cap band the Indicateur would fall to pieces, to transfer F茅lise personally, by easy stages, from house to house. F茅lise had pleaded her uncle鈥檚 need. Lucilla, in the most charming way imaginable, had deprecated as impossible any such colossal selfishness on the part of Monsieur Bigourdin. Overawed by the Olympian he had peremptorily ordered F茅lise to retire and pack her trunk. Then, obeying the dictates of his sound sense he had asked Lucilla what object she had in her magnificent invitation. His little girl, said he, would acquire a taste for celestial things which never afterwards would she be in a position to gratify. To which, Lucilla: 鈥淪cott Jurek may be there, too.鈥? 500彩票网走势图电脑版 The next morning she started for the Riviera. She was proceeding thither via Toulouse, Carcassonne, Narbonne and the coast.

The neighbourhood prospered, and he with it. It seemed as though he no sooner bought a thing and put it into his shop, than it sold with a profit of from thirty to fifty per cent. He learned bookkeeping, and watched his accounts carefully, following up any success immediately; he began to buy other things besides clothes 鈥?such as books, music, odds and ends of furniture, etc. Whether it was luck or business aptitude, or energy, or the politeness with which he treated all his customers, I cannot say 鈥?but to the surprise of no one more than himself, he went ahead faster than he had anticipated, even in his wildest dreams, and by Easter was established in a strong position as the owner of a business which was bringing him in between four and five hundred a year, and which he understood how to extend. By a strange accident, however, during Ernest鈥檚 last year, when the names of the crews for the scratch fours were drawn he had found himself coxswain of a crew, among whom was none other than his especial hero Towneley; the three others were ordinary mortals, but they could row fairly well, and the crew on the whole was rather a good one.
