friend, says tltilujnauCt MiMtmjer, she
was much struck with a remark that he
imide, to the elfect that thai there was
a fortune to bo realized In the oruuge
and lemon peel which was dallv thrown
away by tho garcons of the cafes.
The next thing she did was to sell her
slock in trade and become a sort of
amateur chiiTotiiilcre, wllh this differ
ence, that the object ot her quest was
orange uud lemon peel only.
She had a tiresome task at first, but
as soon as she got to he known she
prospered so rapidly that sho was ere
long ublu to employ other hands to do
the dirty work of collcctinjj tho
materia! from the streets, ami also
from tho theaters, for the sweeping of
which she contracted.
She presided herself over some thirty
young women In her orange aud lemon
peel wnro-liouse, all of w hom were
busily occupied in cleaning, pressing,
and packing the peel us il arrived, 1111
occumttlou which she christened by the
word "master." Vast quantities ot
sostQ were daily sent away to all parts
of France nud abroad to form the basis
of Dutch cttracoa, orangeade, citron

drinks and aperients which are met
with over the continent, She has now
retired from business and enjoys the
fruits of her former liard-mu'iiod money.
