is nothing lo do with my atnry. ' It is little use to
tell you of all the tumbles I had. 1 In limeM be
came a leller horseman v. as seldom on the wrfHig

LONDON EATING pOVSKkshqiiOTt'
While upon the Jerco.V P"er auhjetf, if may
not be amiss to mention an Wh"luMI circumstance
which took place in an eating b.Hie iu town,
poor Frenchman (it waa in the Winter) catered
merely for the purpose of warming hixmW at (he
fire ; he waa ' iu loo great distress to ttu of any
Mtdulgence in the good things there awukiuj" Uf
profusion, save such as might be euhsled by his of
foctory nerv. While eneaired in rubbing Ins
half-starved, bony hand ttrforeni-poxh Jn
uiaaiur ot tne bouse came up and said . -
" n nai will you take "

" We have soma very nice roast turkey and Mil
eage ; will you like that t ' ;
" I tank you, I sail tike him vera mooch.'
M Sit down here, snd I will bring it to you."
Tie Frenchman was accordingly ushered into a
box, and the turkey and dressings placed before
him. Of whatever he wa asked lo partake, he
psriook. He ate hmmiifillyt.anft washnd il diuaa'
with some good wine. Poor follow J be had tv4
known such a meal before for many long day
The proprietor thought he had a good customer;
his mortification and disappoiutuieul were satease, -
when, on presenting bistnllthe hreochmaa satdi "

The master of the house, who was something f
a humorist, and who waa also struck with lb -Frenchman's
gaunt and poverty stricken figure,
suffered him tu depart. But great was bis astoa-
isbment at seeing, a short time afterwards, aooth.
er Frenchman entered, who, upon being asked
what he would take, likewise replied, what you
please." UK, oh," exclaimed the landlord, 44 1
