JULES FRANCOIS ALEXANDRE JOFFRIN (1846–189o), French politician, was born at Troyes on the 16th of March 1846. He served in the Franco-German War, was involved in the Commune, and spent eleven years in England as a political exile. He attached himself to the " possibilist " group of the socialist party, the section opposed to the root-and-branch measures of Jules Guesde. He became a member of the municipal council of Paris in 1882, and vice-president in 1888–1889. Violently attacked by the Boulangist organs, L'Intransigeant and La France, he won a suit against them for libel, and in 1889 he con-tested the 18th arrondissement of Paris with General Boulanger, who obtained a majority of over 2000 votes, but was declared ineligible. Joffrin was only admitted to the Chamber after a heated discussion, and continued to be attacked by the nationalists. He died in Paris on the 17th of September 189o. current popular corruption of shimo'n = Ishmael. In Ezek. xxxviii. 15 it is distinctly said that Gog is to come from the recesses of Siphon. Meshech " and " Tubal " are no hindrance to this view, if the names of the so-called " sons of Japheth " are critically examined. For they, too, as well as Siphon, can be plausibly shown to represent regions of North Arabia. See Cheyne,Traditions,and Beliefs of Anc. Israel, on Gen. x. 2-4.
