Millionaire's Funeral. SCENES OF LEVITY. Paris, Thursday.—The funeral of M. Chau- chand. late proprietor of the Magasins Du Louvre, took place to-day. Among the mourners were MM. Loubet, Leygnea, Col- mette, and Loze, and 3,000 employees of the Magasin Du Louvre also followed the hearse. The route to the Madeleine was lined with troops, who had considerable difficulty in keep- ing the spectators back. The interior of the church was draped with costly black hangings, and a selection of funeral music was given by a full choir during the service. When the cortege left the church for the cemetery the police had to force a way through dense crowds, who displayed most unseemly levity, laughing and joking and evidently re- garding the whole affair as a spectacle got up for their benefit. Two persons were arrested in front of the Magasin Du Louvre for blowing toy sirens. In the Place Voltaire there was some hoot- ing, and as the procession entered the cemetery some scuffling took place. The coffin was lowered into the vault at 4 o'clock, and the crowd then slowly dispersed-—Reuter. Ex-president Loubet was amongst those present at the church. He was recognised on arrival, and was greeted with loud cries of Long live Loubet." The costly coffin con- taining the body was covered with rare flowers, and was conveyed in a magnificent plumed funeral car drawn by four horses with rich mourning trappings. In the Rue Royal the crowd besieged the carriages containing wreaths and, other floral tributes, and snatched the flowers, which they distributed in front of the church and in the neighbouring streets as mementoes of the occasion. According to the Patrie the flowers which were taken were worth no less than £ 1,000.— Central. News.
