AUIi ni.Kt'IIANl.L. uie now president
of Franco, now "reigns" Instead of
Un.uiiond I'oliicare. According to the
ollldnl program etiilllsliiil liy piece
dent, President Polncaro drove wltli a
iiillltary escort to the 1'otlt ISnurbon
mi tlit opposite' bank of tin Seine to
fetch Paul Desehnnel, who hatl been
occupying tho palace for year.s as
president of the chamber of deputies.
From HiL'ie the two proceeded In state In the
Hotel do Vllle, Polncuto occupying the seat of
honor ly virtue of rlht.
At the Hotel tie Vllle, which is the scat not of
Hit national government but of the municipal ad
ministration of the metropolis. President Polncare
icerenionlously presented his successor to the City
Fathers, whereupon the president of the municipal'
council, that is to say tho mayor In chief of the
entire capital and the Prefect de la Seine, gov
enior of Uiu metropolitan county or department,
welcomed the new ruler of France In the niimu
of the city of Paris.
Tho two still living former chief magistrates of
-the republic, Emlle Loubet and Falilere.s. occupied
places of bonor at tho ceremony. After Paul
Dcschanel had fully acknowledged the two
speeches and had given a brief expression of his
Intentions to emulate the services of his prede
cessor and to fulllll the obligations of his olllce
in accordance with the provisions of w constitu
tion, Polncare and Deschanel resumed their places
in tho presidential equipage. The outgoing presl
dent again occupied the sent on the right, no
longer as a matter of prerogative, but as an act of
courtesy of his successor, who drove him, still
escorted by cavalry, to the residence which he had
routed for Mine. Polncare and himself in tho Urn;
Marbeau. From there President Deschanel pro
ceeded alone to the Klysee palace, of which, after
having been welcomed there with full military
honors, bo assumed formal possession In the pres
ence of tiie members of the cabinet.
Quito a different sort of an inauguration from
ours I The French president is not called upon to
take oath of oilice and the people of Paris go
ttlioiit their business much as usual while the
business of tho president taking olilco Is going on.
What Is perhaps the nearest approach to any
thing resembling an Investiture of olilco will be
when the distinguished general, who is grand
chancellor of tho French National Order of tho
Legion of Honor, calls In state at tho Klysee pal
nee on tho designated afternoon to place around
the neck of tho new president tho great gold chain
of grand master of tho order.
It Is n gold chain composed of seventeen gold
and blue enamel medallions connected with ono
another by large gold links, and naturally Is su
perior to the grand cross, or first class of the or
der. It Is fastened to each shoulder with bows of
white ribbon, while suspended in frfcnt of tho
collar Is a large cross of the order.
Tho llrst nine medallions are engraved with the
jfames of tho chief magistrates who have worn
tho collar since the foundation of the present re
public, namely, Thiers, Marshal MacMahon, Jules
flrevy. Sadl Curnot, Caslmlr-Perler, Felix Faure,
Kniile Louhot. Armand Fallleres and Uaymond
Polncare. The name of Paul Deschanel Is en
graved on the tenth medallion.
Tills chain or collar of tho order, dating from
1872, Is the fourth that has been made since tap
-foundation of tho Legion of Honor, just 118 years
ago, by. tho llrst Napoleon. Ho caused three col
lars to be made. Tho llrst ono was for himself,
und was worn by his nephew Napoleon III.
throughout his reign.
Tho second is In the possession of Prlnco .To
iichlm Mu rat, who Inherited It from his great
great grandfather, Field Marshal Joachim Murar,
brother-in-law of the llrst Napoleon, and snmo time
king of Naples. Tho Prlnco Murat of today, of
course, cannot wear It, not being a knight of tho
order, even of the lowest grade. He merely owns
It as a family relic.
No ono knew what had become of tho third col
lar until it turned up In 1807 among the crown
jewels of tho roignlng house of Austria-Hungary,
nnd Emperor Francis Joseph woro It when ho
visited Paris that year In connection with the In
ternational exposition. It is now among tho
p'rench crown Jewels.
Of course tho gold collar of the order recov
ered from Vienna and that worn by tho first
Napoleon as founder nud first grand master of tho
order aro bo adorned with crowns nnd Imperial
emblems as to bo unsuitable for tho president of a
republic. Thereforo tho oltlclul insignia of Paul
Deschanel ns the new grand master Is the collar
mado In 1872 for Adolpho Tlilors, llrst president
of the third republic.
Although President Polncaro, like his predeces
sors tit tho Elyseo palnco, was compelled to re
linquish tho collar of fraud master at tho closo
of his seven yours' term of olllce, ho will, ox-oillclo,
us a past grand master, remain n knight grnnd
cross for tho remainder of his days. This In It
solf gives htm high olllclal rank. Indeed, tho
knights grand cross of tho order relatively few
In number aro odlclally considered as among tho
highest dignitaries of tho republic, coming Im
mediately after tho president, tho speakers of the
senate nnd of tho chamber of deputies nnd tho
three mnrshals Foch, Joffro and Petaln.

olllclal honors and prerogatives, are exempt from
tho jurisdiction of tho ordinary courts of law and
are amenable only to the senate sitting as n
high court of Justice. On their death the entire
garrison turns out to give them funeral honors.
In short, tho Grand Cross of the Legion of Honor,
wherever bestowed upon n Frenchman, carries
with it a pension. It will thus be seen that Franc

honor and for tho maintenance of her former

Like Polncaro, Paul Deschnnel Is entitled to n
uniform. They aro tho only two presidents who
have had a right to nny olllclal toggery since Mar
shal MacMahon. True, the uniform of President
Deschanel Is not n milltnry one, but Is tho distinct
ive garb of tho Forty Immortals of the Academy
of France. It Is of dark green cloth adorned
with green silk embroidery, trousers of the same
material, similarly embroidered, and finished with
a cocked hat and sword.
It Is a rather attractive uniform, especially
when worn by a man with any pretensions to good
look's nnd elegance. It was devised by tho first Na
poleon at Moscow for tho Academicians. Its
sombre, unobtrusive character, devoid of all gold
laco nnn suggestive only of eminence In the arts
and sciences, carries with It a distinction tlmt is
peculiarly In keeping with tho role of elder mag
istrate of a republic such as France.
Tho question of n uniform for tho chief mag
istrate of the nation Indicative of his rank has
frequently come up for discussion during tin- balf
century of existence of tho present republic.
Adolpho Thiers, who was a dwarf, barely five feet
high, with a terribly squeaky treble voice, was
only dissuaded with dlfllculty from donning tho
gold embroidered, gold epaulettod uniform of n
mnrshal of France, as supreme chief of the army,
by the representation of Intimate friends who
were allvo to tho extent to which such n uniform
would have emphasized In a comical manner his
phenomenally diminutive stature.
President Orevy wns Indifferent to uniforms
nnd preferred his shirt sleoves. Ihit President
Faure, who was a good den! of a coxcomb, went
to the length of having gorgeous uniforms and
costumes designed for him nnd was only deterred
from having them mndo to wear on his state, visit
to Petrograd by tho fact becoming known and
being treuted with much ridicule by tho Parisian
press. So he had to content himself, like nil his
predecessors save MacMnhon, with evening dress
us his olllclal garb.
While everybody will bo disposed to cougrutu
loto Paul Deschanel on having attained, as presl
dent of tho republic, the highest olilco In tho gift
of his countrymen, there will bo many inclined to
nccord sympnthy to his very chnrmlng wlfo, who
is considerably his Junior. While, thanks to tho
insistenco of Raymond Polncaro, tho ofllclnl neg
lect with which tho wives of tho chief mngistrnto
wero formerly treated hns been remedied, yet the
llfo of tho mistress of Elyseo Is far from agree
uble. Thoro is not a filnglo ono of tho nlno women
who hnvo lived there during the last fifty years
In tho rolo of "Mndaino la Presldcnto" who has
not complained bitterly of
Its unhnpplness. Indeed
Mine. ('asltnlr-Peiior, n
woman of high spirit, oc
cupying by reason of her
noble birth and blue
blooded ancestry an agree
able position in the Pari
sian great world, especial
ly among the old aristoc
racy, found life at the
Klsoo palace so Intolera
ble that she forced her
husband to resign tho
presidency after less than
six mouths In oilice. She
denounced the Elyseo as
nothing more nor loss than
a gilded prison.
It Is tho restrictions Im
posed by olllclal etiquette
tlmt make the role of tho
llrst lady so extremely
Irksome. She Is obliged
to submit to all soits of
restraints upon her soclnl
Intercourse, upon her vis
iting list, and upon her
hospitality. She Is com
pelled to receive at her
table and to show herself
gracious to persons of
both sexes In every senso
of the word antipathetic
to her husband and to her
self. She can neither visit
nor receive at the Elyseo
dear friends or even near
relative who happen to
belong In politics to a different party than that
which elected Paul Deschanel to the presidency.
Mine. Deschanel takes a keen delight In racing
only for the sport Itself. She will henceforth,
however, bo unable to attend tho races, save In
her ofllclnl capacity nnd In stute. Then, too, there
will be no more visiting the petlts theatres, by far
the most amusing form of dramatic entertainment
in Paris, and she will bo rostilcted to an occasion
al appearance In the state logo of the Operu or of
the Comedlo Frnnculse.
She cannot but feel tho ntfncks made upon her
husband by the dully and comic press, fortunate.
Indeed If she escapes attentions of this kind aimed
at herself, such as, for Instance, poor Mine. Felix
Faure, whoso husband was called upon by bis ns
Miliums In print to resign the presidency because
of tho discovery made that yours and years before,
her father, n family lawyer of some note, had em
bezzled the trust funds confided to bis care.
Moreover, ns Mine. Deschanel hns a large fam
ily of young children, she may be exposed to the
same cowardly anonymous threats of the kidnap
ing of her .uningsters threats which drove Mine.

There Is something nlmost pathetic In contrast
ing tho arrival of the llrst ladles at the Elyseo witli
their departure. Each of them has entered the
portals of tho palace with pride and pleasure de
picted on her features, and making no attempt to
conceal the truly feminine delight felt In occupy
ing a position filled before her there by so many
celebrated and In soino cases beautiful women.
And each of them has loft the Elyseo broken
spirited and disappointed. Mine. Thiers was per
haps the one who carried her head tho highest on
her husband's return Into private life. Hut then
she was a strong-tempered woman, and Indignation
nt what she considered the nation's vile Ingrati
tude toward him mastered every other sentiment.
Mine. MacMahon, Duchesse do Magneta, loft the
Elyseo with the knowledge that half of the private
fortune of the marshal had boon expended In en
deavoring to maintain the dignity of tho presi
dency, and that, far from any ono appreciating
this generosity, the gallant old soldier had lost
as president a good deal of tho fame and popu
larity which ho hud won on the battlefield.
Poor old Mine. Orevy, n woman of humble ex
traction, departed fiom the Elyseo overwhelmed
by the hurricane of obloquy and disgrace that the
questionable doings of her son-in-law, Daniel Wil
son, had brought down upon the head of her hus
band, forcing him to resign.
Mine. Sadl Carnot quit the Elyseo n widow, her
husband stiuck down by the hand of an assassin
while driving through tho htreots of Lyons. As
for tho mysterious tragedy of tho death of Felix
Fnuro, It broko tho heart and the spirit of his
kind-hearted and good-humored wife.
Let us hopo that tho oxperlenco of tho charming
and gracious Mine. Deschnnel thero will be of a
different clinrnctcr nnd that she may live to lenvo
tho Elyseo at tho end of her husband's soven
yours' term of olilco with tho sumo happy look
upon her comely fenturcs as when sho crossed Its
threshold for tho first time in tho rolo of Its mistress.

It Is not. It Is a harmless, legit liunto
