If the bill that he is asked to approve Is a money bill the clerk adds after a profound obeisance, "The king thanks his good subjects, accepts their benevolence and is pleased." The proclamation on as cending the throne is preceded by the traditional call of the French heralds of former times, "Oyez, oyei, oyezr' Alas, that time has disfigured this old world of our country, and today the phlegmatic English herald cries tfcrice to the people: "Oh. yes! Oh, yes! Oh, yes!" Cri de Paris. As Far as Ha Could Go. "I," she said proudly, "can trace my ancestry back to armor and shirts of mail." "I started to trace my ancestry back nee." he replied, "but my wife made me stop when I "got to' shirt sleeves and oreralls." Judge. Good Nimii and Riches.
