BETWEEN ALAIN AND KIPLING

front of a large frame on which the wool to be sorted was laid. The fleeces came in the form of bundles of greasy wool that had been tightly compressed in ironbound bales, and these it was necessary to open up. Then one separated the wool from various parts of the animal: backs, flanks, stomachs, necks. If the wool came from Australia, the tufts were small and fine with black tips; if it came from Buenos Aires, the tuft was larger; from France or Morocco, the staple was very coarse. Pere Ursin taught me to take out the `ganders', that is, the shiny hairs that will not take dye and spoil the finished piece of cloth. Then he made me distinguish between first and second.choice and separate them. At the end of a few days my father came to observe my progress.
`Is he getting on all right?' he asked Pere Ursin.
`Faith,' said the old man, `he has a good will, Monsieur Ernest ... But he's not very intelligent.'
Mademoiselle Ursin laughed heartily. She had a robust, peasant charm which made it easier for me to accept the boredom of this monotonous work. But however delightful she appeared, I was on my guard against flirting with her. I had read The Man Who Would Be King by Kipling, and I understood that a future chief loses his authority if he gives way to his instincts.
In the afternoon I would go to the spinning and weaving departments. The spinning mill, with its silently turning carding machines and its winders drawing out the trembling tufts of thread twisted by the spindles, was a place of order and beauty. But I disliked the inferno of the weaving mill. The noise of the looms made the building tremble. In all the streets of Elbeuf you heard this harsh rhythm which was the heartbeat of the town. In the fulling mill I was the pupil of Pere Fritz, an aged magician from Alsace who taught me the art of `teaseling', that is, of smoothing the wool in a rough cloth and making it shine. Wool workers were provided with natural thistles to perform this task. These thistles, sorted and classified into thirty varieties according to the age and size of the spikes, played an amazing role in the perfection of this finishing operation. Old Fritz examined the pieces to be treated with the authority of a great physician. He fingered them, tested their strength and gave the prescription:
`No new thistles for this one,' he would say.
