The C. L. S C observed Ntiakespeare
day last Monday afternoon at the
homo of Mrs. Sharlel North Division.
There ware present by invitation tho
Shakespeare club and other literary
ladies of tho city. Theipnlng exer-
cise was a psychological study of
Macbeth and Lady Macbeth conduct-
ed by Mrs. Carter and in which ll
who wero present participated. Tills
was followed by papers of great liter-
ary oxeolletice and were applauded to
Mrs. Smart led with a paper on tha
greatest of historical dramas Henry
V. Mi-s. Koatoii selected one of the
four great tragedies of Shakespearean
middle life King Lear. It was u line
production and the manner in which
Kenton depicted the lofty grandeur of
King Lear was unexcelled nave
whan she gavo the closing scene of li
play which wus one of rare dramatic
art. Mrs. lilesh rehearsed the story
of Othello and that orer sadder tt ag-
ed y was so beautifully and pathetic-
ally told that it won the admiration of
all and the writer received many com-
pliments. Mrs. Sh artel took for her
theme that great historical play Mell-
aril III. The critical comments and
the rendition of a portion of the play
was a most effective portrayal
of the hideous moral deformity
soul ugliness intense wickedness com-
bined with the mighty and all-powerful
genius of this bloody monster of a
man. Midsummer Nights Dream by
Mrs. Fegan. and papers by other la-
dies will be given at some future
meeting. Notwithstanding the tragic
muse presiding at the meeting there
were at times tocial pleasantries
Hashes of wit and merriment among
the assembled company that relieved
what otherwise uvglii have been the
too sombre character of the exercises
The visiting ladies were most generous
in the warmth ef their praises.
