At that time Pilhoel was a corner un known to the tourists, and a few painters who went there to sketch took care not to lead thither the importunate crowd of elegants and. curious. Fifty houses at most, all inhabited , by fishermen, stood under the shadow of the ruined church, the cracked bell of .which fright ened even the sea gulls on the slinre.

Il(i had .said farewell to the licet he had commanded, iiiid his old companions, to do him honour, and in gratitude for the services he had rendered them, had or ganised a series of rejoicings. As soon as if was daylight they went to his cottage, to play the drum and lire guns and pistols under his windows. Then tile maidens brought him a-large bouquet, which was presented by Jeanne ; which made the old sailor's tanned face blush as red as a peony with pleasure. The full cups of the best cider—which had been bottled months before in anticipation of this event—wore drained, and the glory of the old pilot commemorated in song. Leohic had not been the least active in all these proceedings ; for he felt towards Mathias a child-like admira tion mixed with a confiding sympathy. Many times lie had been 011 the point of confessing to liim his tenderness for Joanne and asking his advice—for liow c...
