Hrml of llrpnlillc.
M. Falllercfl, tho man who waa elect
ed President of France to succeed M.
Loubct, Is of extremely bumblo origin.
HI father wo n magistrate's clerk
and his grandfather a blacksmith,
whose forgo and cottage, propped up
against tho walla of the Cathedral of
Mczr.In, have only recently dlsnpitcnrcd.
Fnlllerca, who baa bcn President of
the Kenate, has a stabiles political
record. Ho has managed to keep him-
self free from all scandals, notably that
of Panama, which tarnished tho repu
tations of so many public men In
I France. On the other hand, ho Is with
out any striking Individuality, conveys
the Idea of lack of backbone, and has
offonded a number of peoplo by his
weakness for the pomp and ceremony
of oillce ami for aristocratic associa
tions. He will probably be an entirely
msslvo executive of the will of tho
Chambers of the Natloiul Legislature.
He Is terribly fat. not particularly
decorative, ami will In his fondness for
the trappings of his high estate at tho
Klyhoe Palace recall many of tho amus
ing idiosyncrasies of ioor Felli Fnure.

who, while prosldlug over a suit In
which ' Ilrag was Interested, had by
his decision Incurred the resoutmout
of the mlvocnte. . So for n long tlmo
the colonel declined oveu to spook to
the Judtfe, save wheu it was absolutely
uecoisury fn the courso of business.
Finally, however, his better nature
getting the upper hand, Colonel Itrngg
determined to apologize to Judge ltob
lusou nml muled vor to effect a renowal
of their former comparatively ploasant
relations. Meeting the Judge one after
noon on tho steps of the Stato house,
ho Impulsively thrust out his hand
"See here, Judgo, let's be friends
again. This thing has gone on lonir
"WJiy or, Itrngg." asked tho Judgo
In the meekest and mildest way luiag
Inutile, "what's tho matter?"
"Simply thU, Judge," continued tho
tlery llntgg, "I admire you so Im
mensely that I cannot for my life bo
content to remain on bad terms any

"Why or, Itrngg," piped tho Judgo
In the thlnnost of voices, a well
