A palace in which, especially since the last subjugation, the kings of th e earth have dw e lt; a world in m iniature; a hotel w ith seven hundred chamliers, sixty w aiters, th ir ty cooks, tw enty-five washerwomen, and an arm y of doorkeepers, - grooms, cham b e r m aids and house servants. “ A hotel,” do I say ? A tow n rath e r —built from the ground upw a rd, and by no means a small tow n , for i t num b ers one thousand tw o hundred inhabitants. This tow n has a telegraph bureau, a pneum a tic raiiraod, and a post office. I t has its owu cafe, own cigar stores, its own optician, its own barber, its own saloon, its own tailor’s shop, w h e re, as every inhabitant is inform ed soon a fter his a rrival, “ S tate uni­ forms are em b roidered.” I t has its own bool: store, aud in the nam e of all th a t is good, w h a t has it not ?

B u t do not be afraid of th is pa­ per. It is very w itty and very amusing, and is every m o rning gratuitously placed yet w e t from th e press, in each room of the hotel. The tow n which contains all these wonders is live stories high. Each s ory has three districts, cr quartiers— Q u a rtier de Scribe, Q u a rtier de Boule­ vard and Q u a rtier de l ’Opera. I t h a s fifteen fctreets, on the corners of which a tin plate informs you of th e name and num b er, as in any other ci y. B u t w h a t model s treets these are!
