There is a law in France which imhit
ters the life of oyery dramatic author, ttsit
confers ujion every Kreuch citizen tho
right of having a novel or piny immediate?
ly suppressed by tho police if bis name
happens to bo mentioned in it. If a char?
acter in a comedy licars the name of Du
ponl or Uubols, all the Dti|>outS and I)u
boisos in France are entitled to insist on a
change of the name, or, If the manager re?
fuses, <>i' tlie removal of the play from the
bill. In their anxiety to avoid unpleasant?
ness tin- parodists of the Cluny theater de?
cided to designate the characters in a re?
cent piece by means of numbers. The ef?
fect thus produced is somowhub peculiar, as
for instance:
?"Ah. charming 183, you uro the most
adorable of ;ill woineii!'
"And you an- a flatterer, Count 18."
While the two wen- thus exchanging
com pi i incuts an elderly gentleman sud?
denly appears and called out in a voice of
"I have caught you now,Count is! Are
there any cowards In your family?"
"Gracious!" whispered Count Is. trem?
bling In his shoos. "Gracious! Duke 53."
'?Seventy-four," exclaims the duke,
"turn this gentleman out!"
Hut at this point a fellow in the audi?
ence springs in Iiis feet. "This Is really
too bad!" be shouts in the direction of the
stage. "I will send you a summons."
The duke answers in surprise: "What
havo you to complain of!' Seventy four is
only a numlx r. "
"That's just it. It Is tho very number
I bore when in jail, and I am not going to
be degraded by having a servant dubbed
with It."

ment, it was tin? law. Tho play was stop?
