PARIS, May 16.— The Journal des Dc bais discusses the' project of a special title for citizens of the United States to replace the general term "Americans." It suggests, for instance, "Unlstatistes," which translated results in a rather cum bersome word, "United Statists." One might say in French "Unistations," which almost defies -translation. The P'reneh custom is to call all people of North and South America Americans. It is safe to assume that the effort to find a distinct appellation for the people, of the United Siatrs will not be speedily successful.

The violin just recovered is specially precious to the present Czar, be cause one of his childhood recollections is seeing his father, Alexander III, often play, on it. Czar Nicholas, therefore, was much annoyed when walking through the museum one day he saw in' the violin, case where the Stradivarius commonly rested an ordinary instrument with the name of a Si.

He is Ronchomowsky, the reputed fabri cator of the much-talked-of tiara of Sai tapharnes, which, until its genuineness was questioned, had a place among the treasured antiques in a state museum. Ronchomowsky exhibits in the salon a sarcophagus of exquisite workmanship, with designs on the sides representing t six epochs in human life. . The figures, almost microscopic, are. wonderfully executed. Inside is a golden skeleton box, ornament ed with flowers, garlands and skulls. Before one knew of Ronchomowsky one might have believed that this sarcopha gus had been found in the eighth century at Yalta or Ecbatana, and the, savants would have discoursed learnedly, about the costumes of the Scythians during the reign of Nebuchadnezzar. And the price would have been fabulous. PARIS. May 16.— The most noticed work in the French artists' salon, recently opened, is that of a man Ronchomowsky's Peculiar Art Puzzles the Savants.
