DROVE CLEMENCEAU TO FIELD Former Pari* Cab Driver, Now In America, Telle of French Pre mier** Dueling Daye. Running a chicken ranch near Ta coma. Wash., is a man named Nich olas Thien, who, in his younger days was cab driver to Clemenceau, and who has accompanied the French premier to many a combat on the "field of honor." "No one in any country," lie re marked the other day, standing among his chickens, "has fought so many duels as M'sleu Clemenceau. They came from what he wrote In his pa per. But he was so strong. He al ways won. No adversary could hold a sword against him. "It was against the law, of course," added the old Frenchman, seventy two now, in a whisper, "so we always slipped out of the city for these fights." M.'sicu Thien's cab stand used to be in front of L'Intrasigeant, Clemen con u's paper. Almost nightly, he says, the present premier would come out of his office and hail cab 8088.

Of course I will not insult my chickens. They are good ones, as chickens go. But It is a tame life here. I dream often of the old days when M'sieu Clemenceau would hall me 'long about two o'clock in the morning and we'd be off." KEPT SHOES AS 0RNAMENTST American Footgear Considered by Un fortunate Serbian Woman as Alto gether Too Beautiful to~ Wear. Anything that will keep the feet from the ground Is considered a shoe in Serbia. In the remote rural districts of the country it is said that many of the people live and die without owning a pair of shoes. In the bitterest weather they travel through mud and snow without adequate foot covering. They consider themselves fortunate if they can secure old gunny sacks or heavy cloth, which they tie about their feet with twine in winter. The first American-made shoes that were distributed by the American Red Cross created a tremendous stir among the people of the distant vil lages. One old woman who had never owned a pair before took the shoes that had been given to her to her home and put them on a shelf above the fire place. She was as pleased as a child to own them, but nothing could Induce her to wear them. She said that she intended to save them for fetes, or perhaps for her burial. They were "much too beautiful to be worn," she said. Gem's Romantic History. Truly romantic is the story of the Braganza diamond, a stone of 1,660 carats, and "as large as a goose's egg," which, for more than a century, has been the proudest possession of the Portuguese crown. This amazing stone, which Mr. Streeter, the great author ity on gems, has valued at £58,000,000, was picked up by three Brazilian out laws in the half-dried bed of the Abaite river, In the province of Minas Geraes. The outlaws took the stone to the nearest village priest, who obtained? access for them to the governor, into whose possession it was given. The diamond, the largest and finest hither to found, was dispatched to Lisbon, with the result that the three outlaws received the royal pardon and a rich reward, while the padre to whose friendly offices they owed their good fortune was given high preferment in. the church.

The- people became wildly enthusiastic over the new colors and* scents and' foliage brought to them from the East, and' la Holland there sprang up a greatr love fi»r gardening.

J, Tou palik, 14 )8 llose street, LaCrosse, Wisconsin, is chiefly remarkable on account of the length of time ho was afflicted. He v.-rites: "I have been suf fering with chronic bronchitis for twenty-six years and every winter I world catch cold and become so hoar: I could net .speak for six or eight weeks. I could get only tem porary relief. "This winter I was taken with Grip and was in awful shape. A fellow workman advised me to take PE-RU-NA.
