one of the greatest and the most novel

will also be a number of vaudeville

The Shakesperian Club
met in the parlor of the Palace
Hotel last Monday evening.and
continued the reading of the
Merchant of Venice. Much
interest was manifested during
the evening and the success of
the club seems to be assured.
Every one who becomes interest
ed in such a master as Shakes
peare will receive not only a
literary entertainment but a
stimulus which will be a benefit
to him during his business af
fairs of life. Tbeideaofa liter
al study conceived by some of
our loyal citizens, to be carried
on during the winter is a good
one for there is nothing which
tends to develope culture and
high standing in society so much
those literary gems, contained in
the works of the masters.
The next meeting of this club
will be held in the parlor of the
Palace Hotel next Monday even
ing. The club will begin the
reading of Hamlet, the greatest
of Shakespeare's plays. Let
every member of this club seek
to be present next Monday even
ing and to spend such time on
the study of the play as it is pos
sible. The following characters
have been respectively assigned
for the study of Hamlet:
