JUMIEQES. ' A ^REFLECTION. John James Sfunro writes in the Westminster Gazette' :— The road from Croisset on the Seine to the ancient Abbey of Jumieges is a long, clear road cohered with a tnick wGTfe Pall of chalk dust — a long weary road wene it not for Urc happy land through which it runs and the many things by the wayside. We walked along1 it In the boisterous Wina, by me nign, bold, folding and dense clusters of tree's and their cattle at pasture ; by the brown slo-ping fields, where the peasants, man and women, with their faith in th_- bounty of the Earth, labor behind the plough from sunrise to sunset ; between orchards dazzling in the sunlight, with thair incredible wealth of apple and almond blossom. At Uines our way is covered with the white petals of blossoms which the rou(.h wind has blown down, as though it were still winter and Uie snow lay on tho ground. The road side is full of violets, primroses, aind polyanthuses ; cowslip, daisies, and dandelions, grow in profusio...

'WMfttf- HIS ROMANTIC STORY.
