Original Text:
LE MD. DE CHAINES DE SURETÉS.
La chaîne de sureté ainsi nommée parce qu'elle est un moyen sûr de faire savoir que le badaud qui l'achète possède une montre. Des compères stationnent dans le voisinage et ne tardent pas à mettre l'indication à profit. Bertrand a vendu la chaîne, Macaire fait la montre.


Translation:
SECURITY CHAIN DEALER.
The coupling chain is named after the way its used by an unsuspecting victim, who wears it, thus signaling that he is in the possession of a watch. The cronies stationed in the neighborhood are not dallying to put the information to profit. This way Bertrand has sold the chain and Macaire gets the watch.
