THE GAYEST OF ALL CITIES Brilliant Paris Presents Contrast to Rural .France. The reader may wonder why we took him to Paris first, in France. It was not by accident. This is the method we would follow if we were Cook's guides, showing France to a party of tourists; we would take au express from the frontier with no stops till Paris. We would read together on the way a description of the ; finely disciplined troops of the Kaiser desperate suffering and the final j or of Edward the Sixth. Yet if it horrors of the French Revolution, j does not execute some of these threats walks o? the Champs Elysees and the shady recesses of the Bois de Boulogne are as open to them on foot as those whose motors carry them hither. But there ie no real democracy in the heart of Paris. The classes are just ns distinct as in any European monarchy. The rich and the leisure fire often as snobbish and as zealous in their pursuit of titles as the .same classes in a certain republic on this side of the Atlantic'. Paris i' loaded down in every Place and Garden with triumphal arches, worships! its army, and talks of regaining Lorrain and sinking a certain island neighbor. But at heart it knows this is all mere bluster, with its pathetically frayed and spineless army is no match for the sturdy and COVINA MEAT MARKET J. F. KENDALL, Prop.

But so long as The appearance of the country and the stolid peasants in the fields would accord well with the story. AB the environs of Paris were reached, we would blindfold the party and fill their ears with wax. From Parisjs France, this will not be. the station without stopping at a hotel or buying a single post card we would march straight to the Place de la Concorde and stand the B. F. Taylor Cash Store, Qlendora. around the Egyptian obelish on the very spot, where the guillotine once rose and fell. Then just as the evening lights were flashed on we would tear off the bandage and^dig out the wax. .Then would be revealed the brightest, gayest spectacle in the world. On either side the gigantic fountains throwing up torrents of water gleaming with a dozen colors from the electric lights hidden beneath. An exhibition is running, for Paris is never without one of some sort. So besides the regular street lamps, there are draped around the big square and out of sight up the Champs Elyseee miles and miles of yellow bulbs, glittering like strands of golden beads. From the towers of the Grand Palais and from across the Seine a i"*" "' half dozen search lights are sweeping Over the bridge and down the Elysees out of the Kue Royale and the Rivoli a thousand automobiles are speeding >' J 1 V'>v ano> ) vainly trying to bold their place tv as many cabmen are cracking whips 1a1no!""nor8es are jingling their bells as if they were as merry as the holiday crowd they draw. What a dramatic contrast instead of the misery and the horrors of the Revolution wrought in this plae« strangely called Concorde, instead of the stolid plodding peasantry of the provinces today, there is an apparently happy, carefree throng rushing after gayety and fashion. If the people of France once dethroned their god, the people of Paris have set up a new one—and its name ie pleasure. But it is the god of Paris only. One may ride from what frontier he will and find France only a plain, wooden shod, bloused, hard working, uninteresting land. Then the gates of Paris open to admit him to the whirlwind of life and beauty and art and fashion. And these gates open only inward. The province exists only thp.t they may pour their strength and beauty into the capital. It is the life of the capital only that Monday, March 2, 1908, will be gr °" p i the third sale day at the B.

'The life iu the public eye which has made Paris so artistic ban made its citizens artificial. They seem to dare everything for the appearance, little for how it in attained. In nothing is this better shown than in their pleasures. Those are always eminently respectable and decorous, on the surface. In Belgium and Germany, the iiiglit may Vie made Hleepless by the songs of drunken revellers. Never in Paris.
