ONCE WORE HOMESPUN.
BUT FICKLE FORTUNE SMILED AND
HE NOW WEARS PURPLE.
The Iresldent of 'the French Bepnblte
Maiitges to IJvo on 30,000 a Month.
What Teople Eat and Drink at the Bis;
Ball The Luxembourg Talare.
For a consideration of 100,000 francs per
month, with house rent free, and numerous
pprqui iites, Moris. Caroot consented to as
sume the responsibilities of chief of the French
republic. Before fortune, more fickle In
Frano. than elsewhero, smiled on him, his
only Ii her i lance was a good historic name
for his father had rendered the state true and
laudat le service and his sole encumbrance a
wife and small income. Now, a grateful
people allow him nearly $30,000 per month
for hl'i Individual expenses, and a free list,
sufflcif nt to cover all outlays for balls, state
dinners and receptions. It presupposes un
usual tact and streugth of character to be
launched suddenly from homespun to royal
purple without displaying the marks of birth
right. No one in Europe receives more gra
ciously than the president. There Is a distin
guishing personality alout hiui, whether clad
in the regalia of the legion of Honor, stand
ing in the in ii 1st of the distinguished men of
Franco, or walking about the grounds of the
ezposi ion, conversing with the workmen.
There Is nothing striking In the face; it is the
general bearing of the man that impresses
one. Ae seems to the manor born.
THE PRESDENT'S RKSIIlENCK.
Even though the Elysee, erected by Holet
In 171b, has counted among its residents the
Comte d'Evroux, tho Pompadour, the Duchess
of Bourbon. Murat, Naiioleon 1, Louis Bona
parte, Emperor Alexander I of Russia, the
Duke e Berry and Napoleon III, it may be
reserved for Carnot to curvo out a career of
usefuIi'eNs more enduring than any of these.
The iwiluce Is separated from the Champs
Elysees by a large, well cared for garden,
and b it for tho memories clustering around
it has nothing especial to commend it to the
tourist Two sentinels from the Garde Re
publican stand at the muin gateway, and but
for till the English embassy, a little farther
down, night very well be taken for the Palais
d'Elysee. The internal arrangements were
much improved under Nupoieon III. but
even y t the home of tho president Is an ex
ceedingly modest affair. There are scores of
private hotels in Ui immediate vicinity far
handsomer in every way. The large draw
ing room is not as imposing as tho one in the
White House, and tho general reception
room are not as cheerful and bright as are
those of the president ial muusion in Wash
ington Still, with mi excellent service, a
hue lai der, with the lost of wine cellars and
a good stable, M. Carnot ekes out a comfort
able ex isteuce.
Three balls given during the winter are
paid f r by the city of Paris. To each ball
from 1,000 to 6,000 invitations are sent out
Motley is the only wear. Bacchus and Psyche
are the Penates that grace the open fireplaces
of this magnificent building. Bacchus at the
last ball disjensed 4)0,000 glasses of beer, 1,200
quarts champagne, 1,800 quarts Bordeaux,
4,000 aiudwiches, besides equally large quan
tities of turkey, lobster salad, pate de foie
gras, etc., etc. Psyche kept the young people
actively employed until 0 in tho morning, and
tho chuf of police, who snoozed comfortably
in his office, was not called upon to preserve
the per ce. Floquet, the Blaine of France, the
premier and chief of the cabinet, receives a
salary of 100,000 francs per year. In addition
to this he bos a large secret fund at his dis
posal, upon which he can draw whenever he
likes. His drafts up. i it are large and fre
quent The president of th vuuw has only a small
salary, but in lieu thereof the government
gives bim the Palace of the Luxembourg to
live in. Up to June, 1791, when the Count
of Prcvenco, afterwards Louis XVIII, left
it, this had always been a royal residence,
having been built for Marie de Medicis.

I XPENSES UNDER THE REPUBLIC.
Relatively, the expenses have decreased
very considerably under the republic. The
civil a alone has been cut down 20,000,000
francs. Individual extravagance was much
more exaggerated under the empire. There
was a centralization of wealth as well as of
power. Now both wealth and power are
more evenly distributed. The general ex
penses of the country are, of course, larger,
becauso the general necessities are much more
urgent But the general expenses under the
republic, in view of the general necessities of
a large standing army, an expensive navy,
are much less than were the general expenses
nnder the empire, when such necessities were
less widespread. The absolute governmental
expense have been cut down over one-quarter,
foi the budget is not handicapped with
a long List of poverty stricken and dissipated
or is toe -acy drawing enormous pensions.
Take the Bou longer-Jacques political cam
paign as an instance. The entire expense
was covered by private subscriptions, not a
penny being taken from the public purse.
The Republicans in behalf of their candidate,
Jaoquei, expended 1,000,000 francs, while the
Boulanger clique paid out somewhat over
twice toat amount
Thus nearly f 800,000 was put In general
circulation in Paris, all of which came from
the po?kots of Republicans, Royalists and
Imperialists. Tho empire encouraged lavish
display among its representatives; the re
public enjoins modesty and economy. The
expense of running the foreign office have
been diminished one-half. The general ex
penses of the war department are large, be
cause a standing army of the size that today
obtain! In France necessitates the expendi
ture of large amounts. The Individual ex
penses of the general, staff and line offices
are vei y much loss than under the empire.
Relatively speaking, the budget is less than
under -he empire, and I am not at all sure
that it is not actually less, if we add to the
necessary outlay the individual expenses of
the emperor's favorites, which were paid for
out of the war budget Cor. Boston Globe,
Death Rate In England.
The death rate in England for 188S, the
Statistics of which have recently been pub
lished, shows the remarkable fact that it was
the lot rest average since 1837, when the gov
ernment first undertook the keeping of accu
rate r cords. In 1887 the ratio of deaths
was 18 8 to the thousand, and this was the
lowest known till that time. But for 1888 a
still be' tor showing is made, the ratio being but '
17.8 to the thousand. What this decrease in
the dec. th rate means can be better under
stood from the fact that more than half a
million persons were alive in England and
Wales at the end of 1888 whose deaths would
have leen recorded 'during tho eight years
ISS1-8S had the rate of mortality In those
years equaled that which prevailed during

Round Mountain. Tex.,March 29, '87.
A lady friend of mine has for several
years been troubled with bumps and
pimples on her face and neck, for which
she used various cosmetics in order to
remove them and beautify and improve
ber complexion, but these local applica
tions were only temporary and left her
skin in a worse condition.
1 recommended an internal preparation
known as Botanic Balm which I have
been using and selling about two years;
she used three bottles and nearly all
pimples have disappeared, her skin is
soft and smooth and her gpneral healih
much improved. She expresses herself
much gratified, and can recommend it to
all who are thus affected.
