Sir John French, gives the following pen picture of the famous Britisli leader, one of the most graphic that has ap- Parliament street, remem'ber meeting peared: Walking along Westniinste omeone whose face. form, and quick step at .cursory glance seem- ed strangely familiar to me. i looked again to be1 quite certain that my eyes were not deceiving me, and 1 knew you find the war lias'not made liim sad. His characteristically keen sense of: humor remains unimpaired. He is glad to crack a joke with you, and is ready to appreciate any similar effort on your part. There is a hearty note about his laugh which does not soon fade away from your recollection. His humor is good-natured, resting mostly on descriptions oE people and circum- stances. The outstanding quality of his con- its hopefulness. He leaves a picture in your mind of a man who beyond doubt that I was face to face is amazingly sanguine. It is not so with Field Marshal Sir John French, much what he says as the way he says i Ont of curlosltj to see if he would lit. You granted the assistance you never tire of reading them again and again, and each time you seem to find new virtues, new powers of attractiveness in the firm, easy prose that fits iu so well with the character of the man. Familiar, But Pleasing, A phrase like "-Make. good the Aiane" always pleases you to meet in the print of the White Paper afresh, though it is as familiar to your mind, as the letters of the alphauet. Mostly these despatches impress you Tvith the generosity of their author, the un- stinted tribute lie pays to the men who help him to give 'victory to the British arms, And here, standing- opposite to him in this quiet corner of France, you are told that the long1 despatches were written late at night after all the heat and 'burden and care of the day, and it is natural that you should feel amazement at the energy and industry, of the man who is so young at sixty- two, who combines in such a harmon- ious whole so much strength, stern- ness, and kindness.

Xo one turned round to look at him: no one as much as paused to question whe- ther he was not the man whose fea- tures and figure the press of England lias striven to make known to the people of this country. In the press of, men and women moving in either direction along this busy thorough- fare the general commanding the larg- est -British army in history passed wholly unnoticed. A Different Meeting I mention that unexpected meeting with Sir John French because it forms such a contrast to the meeting I have just been privileged1 to have with him In France at his headquarters, a meet- n. matter of business totally unconnected with the show- ed me fmw quietly and yet in how businesslike a manner the Field Mar- shal makes war. Before you stands a man not more than 5 ft- in. in height, taller, of he demands from the nation, that there is no doubt -as to our Ultimate victory. This feeling becomes all the more pronounced as you hear him laugh. You say to yourself, "The man who, faced (with such responsibilities us Sir John French, can laugh so, heartily must have no fears as to the J Just Like s School-Boy Sometimes his laugh gives you the idea that you are talking to a 'big boy; it is the laugh.of the schoolroom, the playing field, the laugh of the young man in a world that could never be- come tired or grey. And. indeed, look- ing at the F'ield 'Marshal, at his erect j figure, his sturdy pose, 'his virile! strong features, it is impossible to be- lieve he is In his sixty-third year. Of his temperament, however short your visit, you see many sides. He is quick-tempered, and when he is an- gry those pale blue eyes have in them the glint oE steel; but he cannot be angry long. Soon tfie kindly look than "the little corporal" and that charms you conies into his eyes with Just that same gift of impressing you in the first coup d'oeil as one of the great men of his generation. He is hardly true to the military type- you expect someone of the height and commanding presence of Lord Kitch- ener. The Field Marshal '.iocs not strike you that way. Eyes That Women Like You see a shortish, well-built, ex- tremely sood-Iooking'nmh, such a one as you may often fjml among the guests at the 'best. English country houses. The eyes in particular fas- cinate you. They are pale, blue in coloring and estreniely _ vivacious, thft eyes that women admire most. They twinkle with laughter and they again, and once more, surely the most lovable man in the world is your host. That 'passing moment .of wrath that semis all the geniai light out of his eyes and brings the omin- ous furrow to his brow has taught you that, justly aroused. Sir .Tohn French had best 'be avoided. This is no man on whom to practice liberties. Writes His Owh Despatches If you arc fortunate you gather much to interest you of Sir John French's methods Of work.
