And since nobody's dropping dead. 1 suppose it's their lucky lime to hoop." "As an American, my friend." Georges Benoit said, "you have certain recognized characteristics. You arc expected to have a curiosity, to intrude your nose into anything that may interest you. because you wrile for your village newspaper; or you are studying the conditions for two weeks for the ourpose of writing a book." Alan grinned. "Moreover," Benoit went on, "you are expected to have a camera with a flashlight, the which you thrust into dark corners and religious ceremonies, while you call on priests and gods to pose ~or you."

Around a bend of the converging paths came the man Vroom followed by four natives rather ostentatiously dressed in expensive sampots. Vroom dismissed the men and came up soberly smiling. "Aha. gentlemen! So you take the cool air of the river frontage." He stood to enjoy their sweating discomfort. ' "Of a miserable necessity,' Benoit said with an equally necessary candor. "We have been sightseeing and we go now to the Magazine Denis Freres to purchase an equipment of photographs." Vroom's heavily sleepy eyelids closed in understanding. "Of course.
