FRENCH PRESIDENT NO NIMRQD,

Is no Nlmroil, and when the King of
fipalu or other exalteds shoot over the
.State coverts nt Hamboulllet, they aro ao
companlid by M. Falllei es und M. Lou
bet, the two ex-Presidents. The present
head of tho republic walks about with
his stick In his ham!, whllo his guests
aie popping at the birds.
The President loves to walk In tho un
dergiowth nnd watch the birds feeding.
In his younger days M. Haymond Potn
cam was u Nlmrod. Tho wild hoar, and
oven tho wolf, wcro to bo found In the
foiesta of Loiralne, and young Polncaro
hunted with tho rist, nnd notably with his
grandfather, who was a Inmous huntsman
of the wolf.
The grandfather's proclivities led to the
grandsons entrance into politics. To ex
tend his domain, and, at tho satno time,
thu range of his activities as sportsman,
hu pin chased somo wooded property, nnd
In the spirit of prevision, no doubt, bought
It In the namn of his grandson, whom
no iook onen on his expeditions.
Ten years later, records the Ori f
'mis, M. Itaymond I'olncare Inhabited
I'aris with his parents. II was offered a
seat on the Consell General, or County
Council, To bo eligible he had to pay
rales and taxes In the district. This was
precisely where tho pine wood, purchased
by thn grandfather, proved of use to Its
nominal Twncr. It enabled him to stand
ami tut elected as conselller general."
"I should bo ungrateful," said the
President, "without It I should never
have been Councillor, and consequently
1 should never have been President of the
republic, nut the truth Is I no longer
cure for hunting for my grandfather
hunted too much, Just as I do not smoke
becauso my father smoked too much."
