a -reat many letters and he might
have used sonie siang of that kind on
a postal card. Upon Mr. Lyles pres
sing him, witness admitted that the
laniguage might have been in a letter
to his son.
Mr. Lvles asked witness if he is un
der peace bond in the city of Balti
Mr. Lyon objected.
Mr. Lyles then explained the situa
tion very fully. It had been asserted
time and again that Mr. Packham's
testimony was reduced from the ree
ords. But to the contrary, the testi
mony to which they had most objected
i had been 'parole testimony.'' That

put in a bid. Packham alleges that
bid had been removed from the book.
There is no testimony from the dis
pensary records or elsewhere to prove
that he put in a bid at that time and
at the pricesi named. There is not a
tittle of support outside of witness'
credibility, for that statement. Pack
ham was disgruntled for some reason
and hr June. 1902, when he began
to write the anonymous letters down
to his letter to Mr. Douthit there was
evidence o malice agaiiist the dis
penlsar on the part of the witness.
Mr. Lvles charged that PacI kham 's
tatement that he could fill the con
tract on the September. 1902. contract,
was a malicious falsehood.
Mfr. Lyon objected to Mr. Lyles'
Chairman Hay said he couldnIt see
I what in the world it would have to

Mr. Gaston said lie didn't care if
r. Packham had never told the truth
ibout anything else in his life, what
Ie wanted to know is if Mr. Paekham
1ias told the truth about these prices.
ie moved that all testimony as to
M. Packham be ruled out except such

Mr. Lvles made a very manly
peechI in opposition to Mr. Gaston 's

Mr. Lyon declared that that closed

25 years. He had applied for position
as beer dispenser there six or seven
years ago. He had been elected. He

There was no further testimony
and no cr.oss-examination of this wit
ness. It was expected that the "New

and Mr. Lyon and. Mr. Christensen
seemed hot for it, but the committee
ruled otherwise and the hearings were

HAPPY MME. FALLIERES.

. These days are crowning my
life." said MINme. Fallieres. the wife
of Franee 's new president. Her ut

of triumph was lacking, yet MINme.
Fallieres undoubtedly has ''ereated"

he owes every step upward to her

Fallieres is. indeed, fortunate in
is wife. For. b)e it understood, the
role of ''Mme. La Presidente'' is
highly important within the Elysee
Palace, even though she has no official
existence outside of it.
President-elect Fallieres started
life .with an excellent head for poli
is but he was notoriously easy-go
n and inactive: he lacked ambition.
e would have been perfectly con
ented probably to live and die a re
peted lawyer or the paternal mayor
f a sun-drowsy southern town. But
me day at ceremony at Nerae an old
riest predicted that the mayor would
become president of the republic.
Madame took fire at the thought,
Why should he not become president?
-She established at UJerac a true po
litical salon on old-fashioned lines.
She toiled unobtrusively to make her
usband significant all over the coun
trysidle. She surrounded him with
seful acquaintances whom the un
uspecting ma.n trusted, but who his
clairvoyant wife foresaw were likely
to retard his progress. She was all
the more resolute in realizing her am
bition because she was determined to
justify, herself for having married a
man at whom her family sneered as a
rrackbrained revolutionist: at best
me of a mind far .from serious, for
Fallieres as a youth was exception
ally frolicsome and as a student un
failingly failed in his examinations.

'The late Bishop Thomas Freder
ik D)avies, of Detroit,'' said a De
troit man, "once told me an interest
ing story of an elopement. He figured
n this elopement as the officiating
lergyman. it was in Philadelphia,
during~ his reetorship of St. Peters.
"It seems that the proprietor of
me of the largest dry goods houses in
Philadelphia had noticed for some
nioths the mnelancholy attitude of his
head clerk, a young man whom he
~eld in high regard.
" The clerk 's pallor and increasing
leanness, his frequent sighs and ab
sent-mindedness. worried the million
aire proprietor, lie questioned the
young man daily. And finally the
lerk admitted that he was in love.
" 'Well,' said the head, 'marriy
~er. Your salary is big enough.'
" 'Ah,' said the clerk, sadly, 'you
on 't understand. She belongs to one
f the first families of Philadelphia,
nd her father is a millionaire.'
" 'Well. maybe he wasn't when he
narried. You have a good position

The Honesty of Mr. Stroode.
Cassius R. Peck. assistant United
States district attorney of Oklahoma.
at a banquet in Guthrie recently
spoke on honesty, says the Kansas
City Journal. One thing he said was
"What are we coming to? Are we
coming to such a pass that our ideas
of an honest man will correspond
with the idea of old Hiram Stroodeq
"Hiram Stroode, for the seventh
time, was about to fail. He called in
an expert accountant to disentangle

days' hard work announced to Hiram
