back home today.
The Tiger of France received ova.

tered the hall to the strains of the
"Star Spssagled Baimer," again whon
lie was referred to m an address by
Joles J. June:and, French Ambassa
dor to the United 8tates, again when
he eras Introduced by Owen Wiater
and several times daring hi* brief
fllem-rccaa .poke only about ten
inmates, explaining ho “was tiled,
l.*d u soic throat, end wanted to go
to bed."
“1 cannot Anil words," he began,
“to express my gratitude for so kind
s welcome.
“I had made up my mind about a
week ago to make hare tonight a
long and elaborate speech to prove
a geat many things that need not
h# nroviil aj\iI to Util vnu manu tkims*.
which yon know u well a3 1 do.
-Why should I speak? I have got
s sort throat, I am tired, l ajn old,
and I want very ranch to go to bed.
“But all this will not prevent me
from saying oner more what I might
lo say I came to thia country to ac
complish a doty which nobody asked
me to accomplish. I came to appeal
to thr American mind, and the an
swer cam* from American hearts.
"*7 dear thands, 1 have'^sen

war. I am a wttaaaa far them, If they
• need any. I know from the first mo
much longer. Yo* have done splendid
work, a* great I should any or greater
than could be expected from your
con* and brothers and husbands; but
there remained a duty, and tlie great
est part of it was beautifully accom
plished by the ladies tlvrt I have be
side me, wbo with generosly, with
kind haarta toward those who had
suffered to ranch, did more than they
could have been expected to do.
“For thia 1 am not to thank you—
that is not enough. 1 do not beliavs
in reward. 1 thing each good haul
l» Its beet reward to itself.
“I want simply to tel] you that w*»
acknowledge it, and we are eve*'
thankful for ft. When the Americana
came they arised among us great
hapat. Wa had bean promised the end
of the war, pity, generosity, all the
great dreams that man has when pro
menading .With himself funder the
stars. These dreams have never been
realised. Wa were told they wen* go

"fhit now a sorry time had come.
No more question of killing of dying
of infllctlag 'wound* and bleeding.
Now the time for peace, that is, for
duties which may be harrier than it
"America left after having (fitjn
Uretted herself from the action of
the treaty. I know the feelings wet
all tight I do not suspect a moment
that there was in American heads
anything than this, that they had
accomplished their duty and could
leave the right to other times
“They thought, seeing the soldiers
coming home, ‘we ora through.’ The
trouble la you went not through; at
least we were not. We wpr* left and
struggled and suffered, and we wer#
not paid, and we have to bow and
