*«13 of. the French capita! was repre-
BsatM. The festivities comprised a species
*& "revue," written and composed, as
tanal. by the president of the club, the
veteran Marquis de Massa. and a Russian
ballet, composed by Prince Troubetzkoi. at
the performance of which he himself wield
ed the baton as conductor.
The club occupies one of tho finest old
; aiaefs in the French capital, with beauti
unds that look out on the Place de
;.i Concorde and on to the lower portion
"f the Champs Elysees. It was built, like
so many other of the most stately seven
teenth and eighteenth century mansions in
Pmiis, by a farmer general of taxes, An
teine Grimod, in 1769; and the old gentle
man, who died at the dinner table from
the effects of eating too much pate de fole
gras. was famed as a gourmet, a celebrity
KUd was maintained by his son and
sr^ndson until the great revolution. In
deed, so bountiful ar.d rich was the fare
vhirf] the Grimods invariably provided for
their gn t-<tst -<ts that it u&ed to be said in
I'aris that one dined at the Grimods, but
one did not digest there. Voltaire was a
frequent guest, and Vatel occasionally pre
>ided over the kitchens. «
In 3 Sit. the palace of the Grimods was
occupied b) the great Duke of Wellington,
and it was there that he gave his memora
ble ball to celebrate the marriage of that
i oyal Due de Berry who a few years later
was to succumb to the knife of the assas
sin Louvel at the Opera, leaving several
children by his English morganatic wife.
Amy Brown, one of whom became the Bar
9e Charrette, mother of old General
0e Charreue ; while subsequent to
The murder of the duke l*is royal Neapol
itan widow, the duchess, gave birth to a
son. who reigned for a few hours in IS3O
as Henry V of France, and who died as
the Comte de Chambord.
In IS 50 the French government pur
chased the so-called Hotel Grimod and as
signed it as a residence to the Turkish Am
bassador, by virtue of the odd arrange
| ment according to which the French gov
ernment provides the Ottoman Embassy
with suitable quarters in Paris, while in re
turn the Sublime Porte furnishes the French
Embassy at Stamboul with a palace at Con
stantinople and with a country seat on
the shores of the Bosporus at Therapia.
Ten years later the Turkish Embassy
moved elsewhere, and the Hotel Grimod
v.as purchased by the newly organized Im
perial Club, of which the first Due de
Moray was one of the chief founders and
moving spirits, and which was composed
largely of men who, owing to their inti
mate connection with the Napoleonic court,
found difficulty in getting into the ultra -
Royalisi Union and Jockey clubs, or who, if
already forming part thereof, did not find
the atmosphere congenial. In ISS7 the Cer
de de l'Union Artistique. -which until then
had had its quarters on the Place Vendome,
amalgamated itself with the former Cercle
Imperial, greatly to the advantage of both
organizations, and since then the Epatant
has been one of the most entertaining of
the smart clubs in Paris, renowned for Its
dramatic productions In the shape of the
atrical performances and of ballets, and
for its annual exhibitions of painting?,
which are under the special direction of the
well known painter of war scenes and mili
tary subjects, Detaille, the vice-president
of the club.

Noteworthy Production of ''Anti
gen" at Berkeley.
[By Telewaph to The Tribune.]
San Francisco. June 30.— After four
months of preparation Margaret Anglin
accomplished to-night at the Greek theatre
on the University of California campus the
greatest task she ever has undertaken
when she produced and appeared in a re
cital of "Antigon of Sophocles," before an
audience of more than ten thousand, test
ing the capacity of the famous theatre.
This was hei first appearance in a tragic
role and her triumph was complete. What
ever fear might have been felt that the
lofty rhetoric and imagery of ancient Greek
drama would be beyond ordinary compre
hension was dissipated by the reading of
the !in<"-? by Miss Anglin and her asso
ciates. And those who were dubious as to
the dramatic qualities of the play were
thrilled by scenes as stirring and vivid as
are to be found in realistic dramas of the
modern scehool.
In artistry and interest the performance
was notable. The play was given on thp
immense stag» of the theatre without
scenery, the classic background, which is
solid masonry representing a Greek palace,
being entirely adequate and fitting to the
needs of the play.
Jtfiss Anglin's performance showed
breadth and grandeur of manner, and thos^
who were fortunate enough to be present
to-night saw an exposition of rarest art.
Added to hi-r natural qualifications for
tragedy, the actress brought to bear lumi
nosity and thought and a sense of her re
sponsibility toward the them" that she was
Interpreting:. With the assistance of
George Riddle, of Harvard University, she
engaged herself in the direction of the en

College Students, 65 Strong, In
Piecigecl to Ten Weeks" Work.
Dr. Devins Emphasizes This Fact
in Addressing- Assistants in
Fresh Air Work.
Collegpp large and small were repr»s<?nr
ed at a conference of Tribune Fresh Air
Fund workers held in the Presbyterian
Building yesterday morning. Sixty-five
young men and young women met to dis
ei;ss, tinder the dir*ctior. of the Rex-. Dr.
John Bancroft Devins. manager of th«
fund, methods and details of work in the
ten homes supported by the fund.
These young people have pledged ten
weeks of the summer vacation to the work
of looking after, the welfare of the little
folk who ar? sent during the summer to
the Fre?h Air horn??.
Among the women ther<» were students
from Wellesley, Vassar, Smith. Mount Hol
yoke. Normal College, Xorthfield Seminary.
Pratt Institute and several kindergarten
training schools.
The men were from Tale. Columbia,
Princeton, Johns Hopkins. Syracuse, Frank
lin and Marshall. Clark College and tne
University of Pennsylvania.
"Nejw Body of Missionaries."
Dr. Devins. who has been connected with
the Fresh Air -.york In one capacity or an
other for twenry-nine year?, made a short
address to the workers, in which he char
acterized them as "a new body of mission
aries." The aim of his talk was to &.ve to
his helpers, most of whom are entering
upon a field new to them, the right atti
tude toward the children.
In the course of his remarks he tried to
impress upon them the falsity of the idea
that they had been made of fln»r material
than their charges — the idea that thf-y
were of china and the children of clay.
That they were from the avenues and the
children from the Blums, he declared, must
b^ rooted out of their minds before the
greatest good could be accomplisheed. To
each one during the summer would come a
great opportunity — the opportunity to stamp
something of his own personality upon a
large number of children at their most im
pressionable time of life.
Hard but Pleasant Work.
Dr. Devine then gave his audienoe a
frank description of what lies before them
in the summer's work. There would be
much hard work, he said, requiring an in
finitude of patience, far seeing wisdom and
great tact, but work which nevertheless
would have its reward and its pleasant
The meeting -was then turned Into an ex
perience meeting, and several of the. work
ers of previous years were called on for
suggestions that would be of aid to the
To-day and to-morrow tho a who at
t.iTKied the conference wM! set out for the
various homes to which they have, been
assigned for the summer. -
The following li?t of requirements to
which each of them has subscribe.-?, when
viewed in the light of the fact that to
most of them each succeeding two weeks
will bring an entirely new set of youngsters,
with whose peculiarities they must acqaaini
themselves, and with whoa* foible? they
must learn to bear, will give pome idea at
what these young people are willing to do
for the good of humanity:
Ten ''Welfare" Rules.
1. To have personal charge, under tk^
superintendent's direction, of twentv-Sve
2. See that they are properly dressed,
hands and faces washed and hair combed
before each mea!, and aid them in getting
ready for meals.
3. Wait on them at meal times.
4. Ass'st them in bathing-.
5. Accompany them in their walks.
6. Take part with them in their games.
7. Plan for the hour of quiet for the chil
dren each day.
8. Read to them, tell them stories, help
them to see God in nature, axgi seek to im
prove their physical, mental and spiritual
wellbeing— a word, be a true friend to
every child coming under one's care.
9. Aid them in retiring and setting the
dormitory quiet for the night.
10. Remember always that the children
are guests, and must be treated accord
ingly. No punishment of any kind may be
inflicted by an attendant; corporal punish
ment by any one is positively forbidden.

Chairman Claflin Appoints Com
mittee to Probe Public Sentiment.
John Claflin. who reluctantly accepted the
chairmanship of the Committee of One
Hundred appointed by the Mayor to con
sider the proposition of a world's fair in
thi? city in' 1913. yesterday named a sub
committee, of which he is to be the hta<3,
to sound public sentiment in the matter.
Mr. Claflin is opposed to the idea and
much opposition has been developed among
members of the committee, but it, was
thought best not to condemn the sugges
tion hastily. Th# sub-committee is as fol

Morgan, jr.. E. 11. Outerjbridge. Ralph C

Dr. William O. McDowell, president of
tho League of Peace. suggests that the pro
posed celebration or the 300 th anniversary
of the settling of Manhattan Island take
th< form of a "joint meeting of all the
parliaments of the world to deal with ques
tions international in their scope and yet
which are not within the Jurisdiction of
any nation or combination of nations —
among which Is the question of war."
Day Oppressive, Despite Zephyr
of Four Miles a* Hour.
• After several days of idle threa'S the mer
cury went up to a high notch yesterday;
and wasn't at all anxious to come down.
The day broke with a temperature of 72 de»
grees. and. in spit* of a zephyr 'of four !
ssflst an hour from the west, th© atmos
phere was oppressive. ' ' '. '■'■''.'?"-.
Th*- record of 72 degrees was made away
up on the top Of Mr. Scarr's observatory,
where one can always get a breath of re
freshing air The thermometers in fh«
streets showed a temperature several de
grees higher. The mercury VMM to 90 de
grees at 4 p. m. and the humidity rose to
Si per cent. " There were only five cases of
prostration from heat, however.
The temperature o* yesterday was 3 de
grees higher than th© maximum of tns
corresponding day last year. The steady
dewnpour of sun from a cloudless sky rr.ad*
traffic difficult for horses whose drivers
took them over block pavements covered
with tar. The entire length and breadtii
of State street was like a crater. The
Canard Line had some consideration for
struggling horses, and sprinkled sawdust
over the tar rivers that flowed by Its door.
The local forecaster promises no relief.
Fair and continued warm weather Is ac«
nounced for to-day.
