was at ones taken into custody lor violation of tha law banishing royal pre tenders from Franco A Possible Pretender Nominally and according to the theory of pretenders a pretendisr is always a king and therefore the count of Paris abdicates the throne he never possessed and in virtue of this abdication all liis claims rights and titles descend to his oldest son the young gentleman now in the hands of the authori ties Tlio gentleman is therefore not merely one of many vajpant princes but the actual pretender to tho throne in virtue of his claims us the heir of Louis Phillippa and also as

the military authorities This dash of audac ity is rogarded as a very hap py stroke and ia sure to make friends for him for a gallant French boy who wants to take his chance for con scription is a somewhat unusual and capti vating figure to appear in the daily news But this did not touch the sensibilities of the hardhearted authorities and M Con stance the minister of the interior ordered that
