A YANKEE'GIRL'S PLUCK. Site HORsewritiritgD A MIE.MER OF Tiig LEGION'OF lONOR IN PARIS. I recently heard of an action on the part of a young American girl toward a French woman insulter which has filled my soul with admira tion and delight. The young lady in question, who is a relined, modest and high-bred-young girl ;is staying withl soni- members of. her family at one of the prominent hotels Yn the Avenue l'Opera. As her dress and maupirs are alike unobtrusive, she has never hesitated to go out alone whenever business or inclination impelled her to do so. One would, fancy op t!hit wide, brilliant avenue in broad daylight, a quiet, modest yoppg lady, in the city deemed the centre of the world's civi lization, would be perfectly safe fromn an poyance or molestation of any kind.

There is little doubt that a suitable site'for the pur pose would be granted by the Govern ment, and the only cost would' be for the buildings necessary for effectually .. in g,.?h~e. _business.
