THE UNCONQUERED

"Oh, no," she answered bitterly, "we can eat like kings on potatoes and bread and turnips and lettuce. Tomorrow my father's going to Soissons to see if he can buy some horse meat."
" Listen, Miss. I'm not a bad fellow. I'll bring you a cheese, and I think I can get hold of a bit of ham."
" I don't want your presents. I'll starve before I touch the food you swine have stolen from us."
" We'll see," he said good-humouredly.
He put on his hat, got up, and with an au revoir, mademoiselle, walked out.
He wasn't supposed to go joy-riding round the country and he had to wait to be sent on an errand before he was able to get to the farm again. It was ten days later. He walked in as unceremoniously as before and this time he found the farmer and his wife in the kitchen. It was round about noon and the woman was stirring a pot on the stove. The man was seated at table. They gave him a glance when he came in, but there was no surprise in it. Their daughter had evidently told them of his visit. They did not speak. The woman went on with her cooking, and the man, a surly look on his face, stared at the oil-cloth on the table. But it required more than this to disconcert the good-humoured Hans.
" Bonjour, la compagnie," he said cheerfully. "I've brought you a present."
He undid the package he had with him and set out a sizable piece of gruyere cheese, a piece of pork and a couple of tins of sardines. The woman turned round and he smiled when he saw the light of greed in her eyes. The man looked at the foodstuff sullenly. Hans gave him his sunny grin.
" I'm sorry we had a misunderstanding the first time I came here. But you shouldn't have interfered."
At that moment the girl came in.
" What are you doing here?" she cried harshly. Then her eyes fell on the things he had brought. She swept them together and flung them at him. "Take them away. Take them."
But her mother sprang forward.
