That by "personnes" adults only are meant cannot be doubted, as the Relations abound in incidental evidence of a total population far exceeding twelve thousand. A Huron family usually numbered from five to eight persons. The number of the Huron towns changed from year to year.

And, as he took Simonides arm out of Lycons to guide him and Myrtale to their temporary abode, he called to one of the boys who were hurrying about waiting on the guests and ordered him to bring Lycon wine, barley bread, cheese, and fruit.

      What is it? What do you want here? he asked, surprised to find her at the base of the cliff.


      "Ah!" A stir of assent ran through all the gathering. The long married, the newly wed, the affianced, the suspected, the dbutantes, the post-marriageable, every one approved.
