PAttIS, December 4. Tho Lillipu

of Paris life, is a 'living dream, nnd
as one wanders nround this toylike
city with tiny houses, horses no
larger than dogs, nnd coaches that

as she Is more generally known by
the public, Mrs. General Tom Thumb.
This llttlo woman Is today, after
fifty-one jcars of life behind the
footlights, charming the Parisian
public and the hordes of tourists
fiom nil countries by her sweetness
of manner and naturnl charm. Just
as tn the days of our mothers nnd
grandmothers, the celebrated Lillipu
tian, who has reached the age of G8,
Is as marvelous as ever. Age seems
to have touched this loVable little
creature very lightly. Her hair still
retains Its dark brown color, and al
though she Is stoutor thnn alio was,
her buoyancy and sprlghtllness or
step nre those or a joung woman or
