Mademoiselle LESCOT, tired of obtaining applause at the Theatre du Vaudeville, wished to do the same on a larger theatre. Here, she has not even the consolation of saying "Tel brille au second rang, qui s'eclipse au premier."

Monsieur Baptiste took off his hat, blushing at the hint Colonel Esmond ventured to give him, and said: "Tenez, elle est jolie, la petite mere. Foi de Chevalier! elle est charmante; mais l'autre, qui est cette nymphe, cet astre qui brille, cette Diane qui descend sur nous?"
