an appropriate one of French peasant

annual fair, which Is being celebrat

marry his niece, Gei-maine, to the
principal magistrate iot, the district,

escape the power of the old miser,
she determines to sell herself at the
fair. . .

man in love with uermaine and wno
pretends to have saved her from
drowning on a certain occasion, fol
lows her example, as does Serpollette,
the good-for-nothing of the village.
In the second act. Henri, Marquis
of Corneville, determines to find out
