CHIFFON FICHUS TORN IN RIBBONS STREWED THE CARPET 138 THE WHITE GIRL ON THE TERRACE: THE ROSE GIRL AT THE CASINO There was a young man in Monte Carlo. He had come in a motor car, and he had come a long way, but he hardly knew why he had come. He hardly knew in these days why he did anything. But then, one must do something. It would be Christmas soon, and he thought that he would rather get it over on the Riviera than anywhere else, because the blue and gold weather would not remind him of other Christmases which were gone--pure, white, cold Christmases, musical with joy-bells and sweet with aromatic pine, the scent of trees born to be Christmas trees.

A. M. (Alice Muriel) Williamson and C. N. (Charles Norris) Williamson
