and when I saw this, "Would to God," my heart cried in its bitterness, "that I had suffered death that heavy morning, rather than the horror of these past days We entered the little street of cottages, and battered in the fast-closed doors with the butt- ends of our muskets. Again followed the snarl- ing fight for bread; and the slaughter of the shrieking peasants. Monsieur, we had all gone mad, and neither age nor sex found shelter in our mercy. We hunted in packs, like dogs, and bit each other in the frenzy of our hunger. Never again, may it please the good God, shall men become as we were Suddenly, Monsieur, a door we had not yet broken, opened of its own free will upon us. In the frame space stood a young girl, with a little blind woman by her side. In the hands of the girl we saw a bowl, from which a small column of grateful steam arose into the icy air. Not one of us so mad but that he paused to see the lovely sight of these two pitying creatures. Our eyes that had grown so dry and hard with the dying of humanity within us, gushed forth tears as we gazed. Monsieur, we stood like gentle children and sobbed, we poor lone men in the snow. The knowledge of this sight spread from man to man, from battalion to battalion, I know not how far along the thinned lines of the shattered army. Those who were with us crowded round to see and we made a dense band of shivering men about the open door. We waited patiently, Monsieur, to see what she would do. We had thought that she would give the bowl to one of us. Had she done so— for love of her good heart--we wbuld have let that heaven-blessed man sup at his soup in safety. We waited. All at once, the young girl stepped down, and we fell away to right and left, and gave her full passage to the road. And then we understood. Napoleon, with his Generals following at some distance, was slowly riding down the village street. The young girl stepped out into the midst of the snow, and barred his passage. He looked up with sudden anger; but the anger changed to a pitiful tenderness, as he leaned from his charger and took the proffered bowl. Sire," said the young girl, we two poor women have naught to give, save this, but we give it for the love of France, and in gratitude to you for your protection of us, and for granting the life of a faithful soldier." Then she turned to us, and cried with all her feeble voice j Soldiers of France-behold the Emperor And we gave one hoarse roar, Monsieur, not like the cheer of any living men, but rather like the death-rattle from the throats of a dying host. And we saw the Emperor, when he heard that dreadful sound, bring up his arm across his face, and hide his eyes, Monsieur, like one who weeps. That was the only sign he ever gave us, that our lives were dear in his regard. But I pray the good God, each night, to bless that young girl, our countrywoman, and the little blind mother, wheresoe'er they be in this great world of ours.
