Pasadena, April 4.—At the regular
meeting of the Shakespeare olub on
Friday afternoon the first paper pre
sented was one of unusual merit, by
Mrs. Bandini, on Robespierre. Mrß.
Bandlni gave a review of his life and
the characteristics tbat brought him
fame and popularity, maintaining that
it was the fact that he always had a
definite purpose, backed by a strong
will to carry it out, that carried him
to the great point of ascendency tbat
he enjoyed. Her picture of tbe condi
tion of the French nation at the time
of the revolution was a graphic one,
showing nt the same time much study
and research as to the causes leading
op to that crisis.
A paper waa read, written by Miss
EmmaLsntz, a member of the club,
who is at present in Denver. It was ou
Napoleon, and gave a rather unusual
view of the great general, showing up
his weak points, whioh are usually for
gotten in the great admiration of his
biographers for his genius as a general.
She cited many instances to show that
he was a man destitute of any generous
sentiments and even lacking in com-|
mon truth and honesty; in fact, that
he was an unscrupulous tyrant, not
oiring how he obtained his power, if
only be obtained it. She sent also a
paper by Charles W. Everett, a lawyer
of Denver, whioh gave another view of
Napoleon, dealing with his strong
points in an able manner. Miss Lent z
gave extracts from the writings of M.
and Mme. de Bemueat in support of
her position, and also read extracts
from a catechism said to have been
actually prlntsd aud used in Spain
with such questions aud answers as
th- following:
C illd, what art thou?
.V Spaniard by the grace of God.
Who is our enemy?
Tbe emperor of the trench.
What is the emperor of tbe French?
A wicked being, the source of all our
evils and the center of all our vice.
flow many natures has he?
Two, the human and the diabolical.
What are the French?
Apostate Christians turned heretics.
Mrs. Webh read a beautifully written
poem, and then the election of officers
was proceeded with. Mrs. Ooleman was
elected president for next year; Mrs.
Bandini and Mrs. Na9h vice-presidents;
Mrs. Crtlly, secretary; Mrß. Braddock,
treasurer; Mrs. Chapin, Mrs. Bandlni
and Mrs. Webb were named as program

Lob Angeles and l J ae*dena express

which he says befell bim at about 7

connty bridge. He had etopped bis

They did not wait for bim to comply
before one of them struck him a hard
blow that knocked him from his scut.
Tbe fall dislocated bis shoulder, but he

assailants so severely with the butt of
it that they retreated. Udell, who is a
young man 17 years of age, arrived

and was attended by Dr. Laird.
