BEFORE being a Republican, Baudin had been a tutor. He came from an intelligent and brave race of schoolmasters, ever persecuted, who have fallen from the Guiot Law into the Falloux Law, and from the Falloux Law into the Dupanloup Law. The crime of the schoolmaster is to hold a book open; that suffices; the Church condemns him. There is now, in France, in each village, a lighted torch – the schoolmaster, and a mouth which blows upon it-the curé. The schoolmasters of France, who know how to die of hunger for Truth and Science, were worthy that one of their race should be killed for Liberty.
“Baudin was killed,
“He had remained standing in his position on the omnibus (in the barricade). Three balls reached him. One struck him in the right eye and penetrated into the brain. He fell.’
