F QUEBEC didn't partake of the
light-hearted Frenchiness of a
Poiret skating cap it could never
live out the life of a twentieth-
century city, clinging aslant and Jaunt
ily as it does to a seventeenth-century
mountain with it6 mouth full of guns.
Quebec began at river-level, humbly
yet aspiringly, when the gallant Mar
quis de Montcalm In 1608 laid down
the cross and the sword for a moment
while he dug foundations for his
house, situated near what is now the
Levis Ferry pier in the lower town,
says A. Lyman in the Boston Tran
script. There was a kundred-and-elghty-
foot cliff behind the little home, with
its gay garden aflame with all the
flowers of Versailles for the sweet
marquise who was to come over the
Atlantic, and before the door stretched
the loveliest of rivers, fading into the
distance beyond green Orleans. But
Quebec could never be satisfied to live
in one place, planted and at rest. So
it climbed the great mountain, perch
ing Frontenanc's beautiful Chateau St.
Louis where now the Chateau Fronte-
nac stands. And after it had filled the
hill with buildings, it flowed over the
top and down into the valley of the
St. Charles, where you can see it to
day, multlroofed and a-twinkle.
Thus it comes that the streets of
Quebec lead a varied and exciting life,
from Mountain hill, which Is too steep
for the old man to climb, and Sous le
Cap, which is too narrow for the big
car to get through with dignity, to
such roads as Ste. Anne and Fabrique
that go upstairs and downstairs in a
life of perpetual hide-and-seek with
the proprieties of streetdom.
Reflections of N o rm a n dy.
Along these thoroughfares are plant

pulled down over their eyes. They
stand in close formation, shoulder to
