The Victor Hugo Celebration.

At the recent Victor Hugo celebration in Paris children participated to no small extent. What was declared to be the prettiest item in the exercises occurred when twelve hundred school-children marched past the statue two by two, the little ones leading, boys and girls in alternating couples. The boys carried palm branches and the girls flowers, which they threw at the foot of the monument, soon forming a mass of bloom and verdure, out of the center of which rose the statue of the poet. Last in the procession came girls representing the muses of Paris; a young Parisian working girl, chosen by her comrades as the muse of Labor, depositing a sim­ple bunch of flowers on the pedestal of the statue, and bands meanwhile playing “The March of the Crowning of the Muse,” composed by Charpentier, the author of the opera of “Louise.”
