Baloz, the editor of the Revue des Deux Mondes, once had nt bis country house In Savoy a numerous company of literary people, one of whom was Victor Chcrbulicss. Cherbullez contributed regularly every other year a novel to the columns of the Revue, and a story of his was at that time running In the periodical. The guests had been out for a walk and had amused them- Belves with gathering mushrooms, which were cooked for dinner. As the company were sitting down, it occurred to one of the party that undoubtedly some of the people who had taken r'f'i't In gathering the mushrooms* knew nothing about them and that there might be poisonous fungi in the collection. This reflection so affected the company that all the people present, with the exception of ('herliuliex,. declined to partake of the dish. He alone attacked it with gusto. Thereupon i'.ulo/. .showed sudden and Intense alarm. "(.'lierhiilie/.! C'herbullez! What are you aluml V" he exclaimed. "Uemem- her that you haven't finished your story in the Uevtie!" (ireatly to his relief, the mushrooms turned out to be innocuous, and the story was finished. J. R, Conlce Realty Co. Successors to Bradshaw Bros.% 238 Bradbury Bldg-.
