Excerpt

stache, qui lui mettait une flamme sous le nez.

Malgré la pluie, on laissait la fenêtre ouverte; et l'un d'eux parfois allait écouter. A six heures dix minutes le baron signala un lointain roulement. Tous se précipitèrent; et bientôt la grande voiture accourut, avec ses quatre chevaux toujours au galop, crottés jusqu'au dos, fumants et soufflants.

Et cinq femmes descendirent sur le perron, cinq belles filles choisies avec soin par un camarade du capitaine à qui Le Devoir était allé porter une carte de son officier.

Elles ne s'étaient point fait prier, sûres d'être bien payées, connaissant d'ailleurs les Prussiens, depuis trois mois qu'elles en tâtaient, et prenant leur parti des hommes comme des choses. «C'est le métier qui veut ça», se disaient-elles en route, pour répondre sans doute à quelque picotement secret d'un reste de conscience.
