Mme. Roland and Her Tragic Role In
the French Revolution.
Mme. Koland was one of the noblest
examples of womankind of her age.
A child of poverty, she gradually grew
to distinction, until she wielded for a
lime the mighty scepter which after
ward led her captive to the dungeon
and Anally to the truiUotine. In the
cause of reform she was the center
of ail influence around which cluster
ed those njihty spirits which seemed
for a time to coDtrol the destinies of
In early youth she showed s'gns of
possessing- great talent. "Plutarch'a
Lives" gave her an almost passionate
longing for the fame of the great men
of past ages, and at the age of four
teen she Is said to have wept becaus
i sbe was not a Roman or a Spartan
At length the outburst came the
j French struggle for liberty Id 17S5
; so sood to degenerate into ruthless
; anarchy. Mme. Koland and her hua
j band Joined the Girondist party. M.
I Koland became minister of the interior,
j Mme. Roland assisted him In drawing
1 op official paper, and to her pen la
j attributed the celebrated warning let
ter to the king, published in May, 1702,
i which occasioned bis dismissal.
Roland denounced the more fiery rer
olutlonists. and Kobesplerre. Murat,
Danton and the rest became very bit

! were not considered safe, and arrange

her fascinating manner and general

At the trial Mme. Roland appeared
dressed carefully in white, with her j
beautiful black hair descending to her j
waist. Unmoved by the insults to j
which she was subjected by her brutal j
judges, she niatntnitied unrutlled a dig
nified demeanor which mii;ht have
suited a Roman matron of oid. but her 1
death was predetermined, and she was I
remorselessly condemned. J
On the fatal day and nt the same
hour and place with herself a man was j
to be guillotined. To die first on such j
an occasion had become a sort of pnv- I

As she passed to the scaffold she
gazed on a gigantic statne of Liberty

took the life of one who was perhaps !
the most remarkable woman of the '
