THE TECHNICIAN WRITES ME

yourwords supportedthis misunderstanding. Believe me, an employer must stay in his place ... He is more respected for doing it, even better loved.' `It's too bad,' I said.

In those days the political life in Elbeuf was lively. Up to the time of the Affaire Dreyfus Normandy had been conservative. Then the radicals had gained the upper hand and we had had a deputy, Monsieur Maille, a worthy Norman with the visage of a Roman senator, whose radicalism was so pale that even the most timorous of the middle classes could support him. But at the following elections Mouchel, my ex-professor in mathematics, who was already mayor of Elbeuf, had decided to be deputy as well. Jaures had come to make a speech on his behalf, and his poetic eloquence had inundated our crowded stadium with beautiful metaphors. At the outset of the campaign the local political wheelhorses had laughed at a candidate without money or experience who delivered technical discourses to the electors and said to them: `Hein? ... Do you understand?' They forgot that Frenchmen love professors.
`That fellow,' Pere Ursin, the old chief sorter, said to me, `is didactic. I like that.'
Mouchel promised that he would have-the salaries of deputies reduced, that he would remain poor, and that he would resist the temptations of Paris. When the day came he was elected by a large majority.
From the very start he provoked some excitement in the PalaisBourbon, for he dared to propose, as he had promised he would, a reduction in parliamentary salaries.
`Why,' he demanded, `should we live better than the majority of our constituents?'
Unanimous murmurs silenced this upstart. A little later he protested that the Chamber didn't do enough work:
`Why not come at seven o'clock in the morning,' he said, `and pass the budget on time?'
Right and Left treated him as a demagogue, but he was acting in good faith. I still used to meet him on the streets of Elbeuf.
`Our municipal works are in operation,' he told me proudly, smoothing his moist moustache.
This I knew, for the works functioned badly and a dreadful smell of gas had penetrated a whole quarter of the city. L'Allee des Soupirs where
