C. · Carlton at a meeting of the jook review department of the Woman's club-Wednesday afternoon at the Y. W. C. A*. "Pauline Bonaparte began her life :n poverty in Corsica and rose to the position of princess while Ma- ·le Romanoff who began in a castlfi in Moscow has descended the social scale until she is a working woman iving in a small apartment in Maa- hatten," Mrs. Amen said. "Whatever the lure in biography it is almost always a delight. The new biography in the style of Lytton Stracbey differs widely from tha old style biograpny which was first a document. The new biography is first a work of art and according to Andre Maurois, its exponent should be truthful, insist on ths complexity of personality, and be human. Altho many biographers seem bent on showing us that our idols have feet of clay it is really that they,are showing us how an ordinary man becomes a hero, rather than how a hero is an ordinary TMan. * Interest in Brother. "If you enjoy reading about Napoleon, you will like the life of hla sister Pauline, because of her grea* devotion to him. She is important because she was the greatest delight and concern of her brother rather than because of any of her affairs or her beauty. "Altho" Napoleon raised his family from poverty to royalty they were never loyal to him and turned on him unbelievably at his fall-with the exception of Pauline who was the only one who showed any signs of gratitude. She had been his favorite sister from the.'tlmk when he visited his family in Corsica, when he was 17 years old. She resembled him then and her beauty increased as she grew until it was a rare and lovely thing. "The only part she had in history was as, the wife of LeClaire who was sent out to Santa Domingo to quell the rebellion of the blacks. She stayed with him until his death anc during her time there was remarkable for her,courage. On her return she' wns- married to a scion of a royal Italian house whom she neith t^J°^ e d nn T respected. Contrary u nf brother's wishes she~refuaecl tc live in Rome and returned to Pari where she became a social leader There was always great jealousy between her and Josephine. Was Shallow. "AH the Bonapartes were pleased when Napoleon divorced Josephine For all her fondness of Napoleon there were many things which Pauline could have done for him which she refused to do because she waa shallow, petulant and spoiled. She accompanied him to Elba and was devoted to him while he was .there. Altho she beggecY to be allowed to live with him on St. Helena, she was refused. She died shortly after he did. At the' last she had herself a court own with all her remaining jewels and holding a mirror so that she might,-have a last look at herself, she died. . "The book is competently wirit- :en, but It could be more entertaining if it were more lightly and 1 subtly written. Pauline was never dull and a, biography of hers should never be that. Marie Tells Own Story ; "Marie'tells her own story bet- :er than Carlton has told Pauline's. 3er early life was not particularly happy. Her mother, died when Marie was quite young and when she'was only a child her father was exiled for contracting 1 a morganatio^nar- rlage.' She lived with her uncle, Serge, and her aunt, Ella, both cold and distant. She had no playmates and her governess, Mile, Helone, was not particularly sympathetic.

She went to Sweden with no knowledge of life and altho the Swedish royal family made everything pleasant for her, she was unhappy. Because of ill health she went to Capri where she met a Doctor M--presumably Dr. Axel Munthe whose "Story of San Ml- chele 1 ' we have all read. At first she made him her confidante but later she distrusted' him. "In 1914 she went to Russia to work in a Redi Cross hospital. She made friends with" a priest and a doctor and it was the doctor who began her re-education by brushing away any of the illusions which clouded her mind. When her brother Dmitri killed Rasputin, she went to Petrograd to fin* that he had been exiled. Her picture of the Tsar and Tsarina is very kind and not at all critical. When the Tsar abdicated, her position in the hospital was lost and she returned to Petrograd to live with her father who had been reinstated. "When they realized tliat every member of the Romanoff family was in danger they finally fled the country. The story of their escape is 'thrlllingly written. The charm of the book is in the objective manner in which It is written. Sbc is not embittered by anything and IB, surprisingly,, a liberal. Her booic has been influenced by a wish not to hurt anyone now alive 1 and this is. particularly noticeable in the Swedish episode. Her son is the Prince Lennart who recently declared his intention of marrying a commoner. BROOKS-LOWEN CLARION,- .; March.. f 11.--Miss Irene Lowen, .daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.

This rare flavor in coffee that people everywhere are talking about. It cornea from tiny mountain 'districts along the West Coast of .Central America. A region where Nature produces coffees that, experts concede, are not duplicated anywhere else in the world. Coffees with a rare tang and mellow, rich body that spoils your taste for ordinary kinds. Coffees that are never "flat," or thin, or bitter, Coffees from which Nature leaves out the "rough" offensive oils. , Introduced by Folger Years ago this coffee was first served in the famous Bohemian restaurants of San Francisco where it was introduced by Folger. Travelers tasting it there were captivated by its unusual flavor.
