Some days earlier than this his father had told him to go and spendseveral months with his uncle at Saumur. Perhaps Monsieur Grandet wasthinking of Eugenie. Charles, sent for the first time in his life intothe provinces, took a fancy to make his appearance with thesuperiority of a man of fashion, to reduce the whole arrondissement todespair by his luxury, and to make his visit an epoch, importing intothose country regions all the refinements of Parisian life. In short,to explain it in one word, he mean to pass more time at Saumur inbrushing his nails than he ever thought of doing in Paris, and toassume the extra nicety and elegance of dress which a young man offashion often lays aside for a certain negligence which in itself isnot devoid of grace. Charles therefore brought with him a completehunting-costume, the finest gun, the best hunting-knife in theprettiest sheath to be found in all Paris. He brought his wholecollection of waistcoats. They were of all kinds,,gray, black, white,scarabaeus-colored: some were shot with gold, some spangled, some/chined/; some were double-breasted and crossed like a shawl, otherswere straight in the collar; some had turned-over collars, somebuttoned up to the top with gilt buttons. He brought every variety ofcollar and cravat in fashion at that epoch. He brought two ofBuisson's coats and all his finest linen He brought his pretty goldtoilet-set,,a present from his mother. He brought all his dandyknick-knacks, not forgetting a ravishing little desk presented to himby the most amiable of women,,amiable for him, at least,,a fine ladywhom he called Annette and who at this moment was travelling,matrimonially and wearily, in Scotland, a victim to certain suspicionswhich required a passing sacrifice of happiness; in the desk was muchpretty note-paper on which to write to her once a fortnight.In short, it was as complete a cargo of Parisian frivolities as it waspossible for him to get together,,a collection of all the implementsof husbandry with which the youth of leisure tills his life, from thelittle whip which helps to begin a duel, to the handsomely chasedpistols which end it. His father having told him to travel alone andmodestly, he had taken the coupe of the diligence all to himself,rather pleased at not having to damage a delightful travelling-carriage ordered for a journey on which he was to meet his Annette,the great lady who, etc.,,whom he intended to rejoin at Baden in thefollowing June. Charles expected to meet scores of people at hisuncle's house, to hunt in his uncle's forests,,to live, in short, theusual chateau life; he did not know that his uncle was in Saumur, andhad only inquired about him incidentally when asking the way toFroidfond. Hearing that he was in town, he supposed that he shouldfind him in a suitable mansion.

In order that he might make a becoming first appearance before hisuncle either at Saumur or at Froidfond, he had put on his most eleganttravelling attire, simple yet exquisite,,"adorable," to use the wordwhich in those days summed up the special perfections of a man or athing. At Tours a hairdresser had re-curled his beautiful chestnutlocks; there he changed his linen and put on a black satin cravat,which, combined with a round shirt-collar, framed his fair and smilingcountenance agreeably. A travelling great-coat, only half buttoned up,nipped in his waist and disclosed a cashmere waistcoat crossed infront, beneath which was another waistcoat of white material. Hiswatch, negligently slipped into a pocket, was fastened by a short goldchain to a buttonhole. His gray trousers, buttoned up at the sides,were set off at the seams with patterns of black silk embroidery. Hegracefully twirled a cane, whose chased gold knob did not mar thefreshness of his gray gloves. And to complete all, his cap was inexcellent taste. None but a Parisian, and a Parisian of the upperspheres, could thus array himself without appearing ridiculous; noneother could give the harmony of self-conceit to all these fopperies,which were carried off, however, with a dashing air,,the air of ayoung man who has fine pistols, a sure aim, and Annette.

Now if you wish to understand the mutual amazement of the provincialparty and the young Parisian; if you would clearly see the brilliancewhich the traveller's elegance cast among the gray shadows of the roomand upon the faces of this family group,,endeavor to picture to yourminds the Cruchots. All three took snuff, and had long ceased torepress the habit of snivelling or to remove the brown blotches whichstrewed the frills of their dingy shirts and the yellowing creases oftheir crumpled collars. Their flabby cravats were twisted into ropesas soon as they wound them about their throats. The enormous quantityof linen which allowed these people to have their clothing washed onlyonce in six months, and to keep it during that time in the depths oftheir closets, also enabled time to lay its grimy and decaying stainsupon it. There was perfect unison of ill-grace and senility aboutthem; their faces, as faded as their threadbare coats, as creased astheir trousers, were worn-out, shrivelled-up, and puckered. As for theothers, the general negligence of their dress, which was incompleteand wanting in freshness,,like the toilet of all country places,where insensibly people cease to dress for others and come to thinkseriously of the price of a pair of gloves,,was in keeping with thenegligence of the Cruchots. A horror of fashion was the only point onwhich the Grassinists and the Cruchotines agreed. wig acronym

When the Parisian took up his eye-glass to examine the strangeaccessories of this dwelling,,the joists of the ceiling, the color ofthe woodwork, and the specks which the flies had left there insufficient number to punctuate the "Moniteur" and the "Encyclopaediaof Sciences,",the loto-players lifted their noses and looked at himwith as much curiosity as they might have felt about a giraffe.Monsieur des Grassins and his son, to whom the appearance of a man offashion was not wholly unknown, were nevertheless as much astonishedas their neighbors, whether it was that they fell under theindefinable influence of the general feeling, or that they reallyshared it as with satirical glances they seemed to say to theircompatriots,, a wiggle in time is a

"That is what you see in Paris!"

They were able to examine Charles at their leisure without fearing todisplease the master of the house. Grandet was absorbed in the longletter which he held in his hand; and to read it he had taken the onlycandle upon the card-table, paying no heed to his guests or theirpleasure. Eugenie, to whom such a type of perfection, whether of dressor of person, was absolutely unknown, thought she beheld in her cousina being descended from seraphic spheres. She inhaled with delight thefragrance wafted from the graceful curls of that brilliant head. Shewould have liked to touch the soft kid of the delicate gloves. Sheenvied Charles his small hands, his complexion, the freshness andrefinement of his features. In short,,if it is possible to sum up theeffect this elegant being produced upon an ignorant young girlperpetually employed in darning stockings or in mending her father'sclothes, and whose life flowed on beneath these unclean rafters,seeing none but occasional passers along the silent street,,thisvision of her cousin roused in her soul an emotion of delicate desirelike that inspired in a young man by the fanciful pictures of womendrawn by Westall for the English "Keepsakes," and that engraved by theFindens with so clever a tool that we fear, as we breathe upon thepaper, that the celestial apparitions may be wafted away. Charles drewfrom his pocket a handkerchief embroidered by the great lady nowtravelling in Scotland. As Eugenie saw this pretty piece of work, donein the vacant hours which were lost to love, she looked at her cousinto see if it were possible that he meant to make use of it. Themanners of the young man, his gestures, the way in which he took uphis eye-glass, his affected superciliousness, his contemptuous glanceat the coffer which had just given so much pleasure to the richheiress, and which he evidently regarded as without value, or even asridiculous,,all these things, which shocked the Cruchots and the desGrassins, pleased Eugenie so deeply that before she slept she dreamedlong dreams of her phoenix cousin.

The loto-numbers were drawn very slowly, and presently the game camesuddenly to an end. La Grand Nanon entered and said aloud: "Madame, Iwant the sheets for monsieur's bed."
