ECONOMY IN GUM.

Qaid.i n.H if They Were
Keononjy in small things is a very
laudable tiling. There is even a pro
vcrJjLto Jhe effect that with strict ccon
omvone. liKtYf become rich. Iftfwever,
Hha't is a matter not altogether certain,
because if one will go over the list of
his economical friends he will not find
a rich one among thetn. They are
economical because they are not rich,
and because it is necessary. If they
were rich they would not be econom
ical. It is the opinion of the best
judges that it takes a few. qualities oth
er than economy to make a man really
rich, as, for instance, capital, brains,
opportunity, marriage with a" girl
! worth a million, a recently deceased
wealthy relative, etc.
However, economy is a good thing
when it is necessary. It does not take
any gret.t amount of acumen to live
well when one has plenty of im-ney.
The clever thing is to live'v.ell without

In a large family of girls ad.didtcd to

to find places in which to hidfc gum.

the arm of papa's favorite chair, and
coul-.l,not be sure whether it washers
or Jessie's. She knew she had put a
quid there once upon a linn-. So at
last the 'girls' parceled off the hiding
places in this fashion. Mamie was to
hide her gum on the under side cf the

j Kennes. Atig. 23. Yesterday was
! Muitre Lalxiri's day at the Lycee,
where Capt. Dreyfus is standing' trial
on charge of treason. Labori was the
; central figure of the scene. As the
' Dreyfus drama unrolled before a
crowded court yesterday forenoon, his
', tali, viking-like form draped in a long,
, black gown, bordered with ermine, sit
! ting in front of the footlights was the
magnet which, from the moment the
' curtain was run up until it fell at
: noi n, drew all eyes, not merely
glances of curiosity, but the steady
gaze of admiration. His mere presence
brought brightness into the court
room and f.vsh light into the proceed
Arinnl of Lnhorl.
The arrival of I-abori at tli Lycee
was the signal for scenes of extraordi
s M. LaiMiri. aeomKinieJ by Mine.
Labori and a physician, entered the
court-room the audience greeted him
i b. .standing up, and tlutre was a gener
. al roar of npplause.aceomp-inied by the
' clapping of hands, which was distinct
ly heard in the streets. Tears sprang to
the eyes of the wounded man, who was
evidently Jep!y affected by the warm
welcome accorded him. Among those
who greeted M. Labori were Oenerals
F.illot and Mereier, who courteously
inquired ns to his condition.
j Ttie Audience ApIautietl.
1 At first the. audience seemed to be
apprehensive that Col. Jouaust, presi
t.ent of the court, might treat the ap
plause of M. l abori as a demonstra
tion which would warrant him in
eh iiring the court. It began, therefore,
with a few timid chips of the hands,
but was soon followed by gem-nil ap
plause upon the part of the whole au
dit nee with the exception of a few
standing at the back of the court
room. Welcomed b- HreyfiiM.
Dreyfus entered the room soon af
terward, and having saluted the
judges, turned to M. Labori with tiut
st niched binds, a smile of ke-n pleas
ure Sighting up his pale and usually
impassive features. The lawyer took
the prisoner's hand ar.il shook it
w. ,1-111 ly. whereupon Dr'-yfus gave him
nnother look of gratitude and took his
seat in fro-it of counsel's tabh- with
his back toward them.
Address by Col. JooniiKt.
Col. Jouanst next read from a paper
r.n .address to M. Labori, tin- lone of
the president being quite sympathetic.
The lawyer made an impassioned re
ply. He was deeply atTe't-.'d and his
voice was clear, though nut so strong
as before he was shot, lie wa-s very
i-.i r ins ant! exe'ted ami wuisycd to and
fro as he delivered his r- p'v. His hear
ns were profoundly iiuprcs-cd.
Mme. Ilcjnne. the celebrated actress,
was among those present ?:i court. She
made the trip to IJcnnes especially to
see the trial, and the return of M. La
bori into the case.
I Gnlvnnizetl the Dormant UefeiiNP.
: Labori did what the people expect-
' ei. He galvanized the dormant de
fense into an active, living thing. M.
Pi-mangc 's conciliatory. lie has al
wi.ys s-.-emed to fear to tread on the
military corn. Labori is a gladiator
aiiil always speaks to touch his foe to
tije quick. Let there be the slightest
0erting iu his opponent's defense and
hi thrirsts home.

nothing to ask a .witness. M. Labori's

and the audience could have listened

i Cornered on the Schneider Letter.
i Labori cornered Mereier on the
Schneider letter, which the latter had
used in evidence and which Col. Schnei-
I der had repudiated as a forgery.
The general' was surprised when
Labori suddenly demnuded that Mer

the tribunal would support him in re
fusing to explain how he got. a copy
of a letter which was of later date
than his incumbency at the ministry
of war." Hut Laliori was not to be denied.-

Another series of questions put by
M. Labori concerned La Joux, a spy,

war otlice. but packed off to South
America, according to various military
witnesses, because he proved a swin
dler. Labori asked how it was,if that were
so, that La Joux was still receiving
Commandant Kollin, completely
taken aback, replied that a cessation
of payments was under consideration.
The impression conveyed by Labori's
questions, and the replies given, was

war oftiee to keep out of the way, in
the interests of Ksterhazy, whom La
Joux, in a letter read in court, offering
revelations in the Dreyfus nffairs, in

cross-examination in this matter,
therefore, was a distinct advantage to

Cnt. UreyfUM New AtliiaJe.
Capt. Dreyfus yesterday pursued the
attitude he took up Monday, and re
plied to the statements of hostile wit
nesses with arguments and the pre
sentation of counter facts, only once
giving way to his feelings and offer
ing a cry of protest. This was at the
conclusion of Col. liertin's deposition,
when, with broken voice, the aecused
declared his love of France and the
"Yes." he cried, "I love France, and
I love my country, but it is with senti
ments different from those animating
them who come here to-day to testify
against me." -
Hotter for Hi Insertion.
M. Laliori. if anything, vvas better
after his exertions than lM-fore them.
The excitement under which he la
bored seemed to act as a stimulant,
although many friends noticing his ,
flushed face, feared there might be a ,
relapse. So far from this being the
ease, however, he was able to go for
a -drive willi his wife, in an autocar "

turn, he held piite a reception, after--'

A Scnrrillou Insinuation.
' ' he sc.urrillous tactics of the anti
Drryfnsard newspapers may lie ill us- '
tr: tetl by a paragraph appearing in
tin ir organ here last evening, declar- '
ini that the attack on Labori, which,
it nsinuates. did very little harm,
wafc made solely to arouse the pity of
thij people of Kennes for the lamenta
ble! lot of an escaped convict from
l!ieut.-Col. ISertin's testimony was'
conjcludcd with a passage at arms be
tween him and M. Labori. The latter
declared that Ilertin himself, by re
marks which he had made upon a
certain tM-easion. convinced the law
yer of the innocence of Dreyfus.
Counsel then recalled other words -
used by Ifertin to the effect that M.
Dciiiange was counsel for the German .. .
embassy because he had defended oth
ers aecused of espionage.,
The witness admitted the correct-"
