The two armies met and prepared for battle, and Anlaff, wishing to learn the strength and the arrangements of his adversary, disguised himself as as harper and went into Athelstan's camp. Having played on' his harp from tent to tent, he was at length conducted to the royal pavilion.

The king was so well pleased with' his music that, on his departure, he gave him a handsome recompense.

This excited suspicion in a soldier who observed him, and on' approaching he recognised him notwithstanding his disguise. As soon as he was gone the soldier presented himself before Athelstan, and said, "Sire, the harper who has given' you so much pleasure, and whom you have rewarded so handsomely, is no other than Anlaff, your mortal enemy. This attack brought on a general battle, which ended in the total defeat of Anlaff and his followers. On devant un participe present se traduit en in. It appears that when this celebrated author was at school, though very laborious, his intelligence was not brilliant, and his great success in after rifel was owing to' his indefatigable perseverance.

Great was my anxiety to know the success of my measure, and it succeeded but too well. Disconcerted, he looked down'; the talisman' was gone, his ideas became confused, he could not reply. I seized the opportunity, answered the question, and took his place, which he never recovered, nor do I believe' he ever suspected the author of the trick.

Frequently have I resolved to make him some amends' by' rendering him a service; but an opportunity did not present itself, and I fear I did not seek one with as much ardour as I sought to supplant him at school.

Several of them gave all they possessed; but the king was not satisfied, believing they had yet money concealed: he therefore ordered them to be tortured until they would acknowledge it.

Some were deprived of an eye, and one in particular', from whom a sum of ten thousand marks was demanded, was treated with yet greater cruelty. The king ordered that one of his teeth should be pulled out every day till he paid the money. The Jew, not being disposed to reduce himself to poverty, resisted during a whole week, and thus lost seven of his teeth; but, unable to bear the'To be in want, avoir besoin.

In a few moments2 several of the eels were on the pavement, and poor Fidele, beginning to be enraged, took them up in his mouth, shook them well, and put them again into the basket, which' was scarcely done, when others had crawled out.

This arrangement was not approved of' by the plaintiff, but the architect, to make him some amends', gave him the place of porter at his house.
