The vehicles In which President Faure and the suites, etc.. were seated presented an almost equally attractive appear ance. The scene outside the station at that time was one of frenzied enthusi asm. Shout after shout, roar after roar, arose from the multitude gathered welcome the Russian travelers. The cortage. en route, passed the Arc de Triomphe and was wildly cheered by the immense crowds filling the avenues surrounding It. Presented a Marvelous ftpeetarle. Descending the Champs Rlysees the spectacle was totally marvelous, the lavish decorations and cheering masses streching as far as the eye could reach.

The roofs, also. cr packed with peo ple, and it would seem an If a seclal providence Interposed in order to save the most venturesome from toppling over into the streets.

After the ban quet the czar and czarina were driven to the Grand Opera. The whole audi ence in the theater arcse and turned toward the imperial loge as the party entered and the orchestra played the Russian hymn. Then thunders of ap plause reverberated throughout the th.-atre.
