A rather curious incident happened yesterday. One of the fellows went into a French house to get something. To make up for his French vocabulary which was limited, he waved his hands around and gesticulated quite freely until finally the lady said "Sir, what is it you want?" His look of astonishment spoke for itself and then to cap the affair the old man came along and says "Hello, Boys. How would you like a little game?" in real good English and added as one of the fellows had an apple in his hand that this was a poor country for fruit.
