    An American friend of Edmond Rostand says that the great dramatist once told him of a curious encounter he had had with a local magistrate in a town not far from his own.

    It appears that Rostand had been asked to register the birth of a friend's newly arrived son. The clerk at the registry office was an officious little chap, bent on carrying out the letter of the law. The following dialogue ensued:

    "Your name, sir?"

    "Edmond Rostand."

    "Vocation?"

    "Man of letters, and member of the French Academy."

    "Very well, sir. You must sign your name. Can you write? If not, you may make a cross." - Howard Morse.
