London, Sept. 22. A corres
pondent of the Daily Mail who
joined the Dreyfus party at Bor
deaux, and accompaniod them to
Carpontras, described Dreyfus as
"thoughtful, prematuroly aged,
with a soft oye, a smilo liko a
woman's, and rather the appear
ance of a savant than a soldiei."
When told of the great wave of
British sympathy in his behalf,
be wrung tho correspondent's
band and showed tke deepest
emotion. Hihnaltb, the corres
pondent says, is far from satisfac
tory. He ate meat yesterday for
the first time. "It is acaimt the
doctor's orders," said M. Mathieu

will only ask to be allowed to

with bis loved ouoi, far from tho

pondent, "on our journey, was
that of a man running from the
