KKMINISCENCES OF TKELAWNY.
An Interesting Interview with the Aged
Trelawny Stories of Byren and Shelley
Characteristics of the Peets The
Hurniug of the Itedy of Shelley A
AYeinl, Tragic Picture.
A writer in the Louden WhiteJuill Review
.says : Te ce 3Ir. Trelawny and hear him
talk is te be transported back, as if by
magic, half a century or se, te that thrill
ing period when Shelley and Byren, these
revolutionary Die.scuri of English poetry,
passed the last years of their brief lives
self-exiled in Italy. As he sits smoking in
his chair, or paces up and down the room,
the grand old man, who has been se long
before Europe as te have become histori
cal, still shows traces in his line features
which justify the assertion that he, Lord
Byren and Count d'Orsay, were considered
the three handsomest men of their time.
men, as lie uegtns taiKing te you m a
voice that seems issuing from some deep
cavern, his prodigious memory aud singu
lar power of expression make the past
picscnt. But it is net in the past alone
that he lircs. Nothing is tee new, bold
and daring for him in modern philosophic
.speculation ; he delights in the latest dis
coveries of science, holds that woman
should receive the same education as man
and enjoy the same social advantages, and
considers Darwin the most eminent man of
lie will begin speaking quite abruptly,
as if only continuing aloud some previous
train of thought, ""What." he growled,
" is all that rubbish that Symonds writes
about Shelley being tee beautiful te
paint ? Toe beautiful te paint, indeed !
When he was quite young he might have
had the beauty that wc admire iu children
or young gills, but he liad no manly
beauty. lie was narrow chested and
steeped like a scholar. Yeu could see that
from a child, almost a baby, he had been
bending overbooks. lie had the smallest
head of any man I ever knew ; Byren's
came next. His eyes were slightly promi
nent and there was hardly any of the
white visible. Te see him in a crowd was
like teeing a stag in the midst of a herd of
deer. The deer has a timid way of look
ing en the ground, but the stag walks with
lilted head and shining eyes. His eyes
were like two stars. New, Byren was
handsome. The upper part of his figure
was nobly proportioned, aud his threat
w.is like a column. He had most beautiful
eyes, well set m his neatl ; they were like a
cat's, changing continually in color ; new
blown, new golden, then green, full of
" What de you think of their genius re
' Shelley had the divine maducss which
alone makes a man write great poetry.
But he appealed te the intellect, while By By
eon's poetry appealed te the passions of
mankind. All men have passions ; there
fore they understood him. But Shelley
was a great metaphysician, a logician, a
poet whom people shunned in his day. Ne
one read his writings ; and when I went te
get one of his poems from Oilier, his pub
lisher, he pretended net te have a copy,
till being informed that I was Shelley's
fi iend, he fetched it from a secret drawer.
This was the universal feeling concerning
him. Ne one understood him net Hegg
net Peacock ; and the former, though
he often calls him a divine poet, did net
belive anything of the kind ; en the con
trary, he thought it all nonsense, and was
laughing in his sleeves when he used such
"But what was the bend between them,
"Why, they were both excellent
scholars. Shelley was an enthusiastic
student of the Gicek poets, and greatly
influenced by them, especially in his latter
years. Ne one who is ignorant of the
classics can thoroughly appreciate him.
That is partly the leaseu why Swinburne
undcistands him se well : he has written
better things concerning him than anyone
else. But he, tee, has some of the divine
madness. Nothing great can ever be done
without it. Here is another man who was
also full of it."
Mr. Trelawny was pacing up and down
the room while uttering these sentences in
his deep, leonine voice. He new brought
me a poi trait of Jehn Brown, the Ameri
can martyr, of whom he spoke with a
kindling cj c.
" De you knew what was his answer te
the rebels when they threatened te hang
him i ' De,' said he, ' I wish for nothing
better, for then my name will become a
ilag for the North te rally round.' Enthu
siasts and fanatics are the men that move
the world. There is Blake, new ; I con
sider him a true poet also ; what he writes
is full of inspiration."
"Was Shelley's voice really as loud
and piercing as is generally asserted?"
" Of course all the Shelley biographers
must go en repeating Hegg'sl assertion
about the harsh shrillness of the poet's
tones. Ne doubt lie was habitually
hearse in this climate. Yeu alway find
that Italians lese their voice en coming te
England, while that of the English gets
sweeter in Italy. Shelley's voice was soft
and pleasant at any rate when I knew
"Did Shelley ever shut himself up te
" Shut himscl up !"' shouted Mr. Tie
lawny, indignantly. "Never! He wrote
his poems in the open air ; en the sea
shore; in the pine weeds; and, like a
shepherd, he could tell the time of day
exactly by the light. He never had a
watch. And I think Byren never had ;
but if the latter had enc,hc never were it."
" Which of all Byren's works de you
yourself prefer ?"
"'Childe Hareld.' He at one time
intended introducing me either into that
poem or into ' Den Juan' ; he did net
knew which, nis intention was te have
written a fifth canto of ' Childe Hareld."
the scene of which was te be laid at Na
ples. But he said he must see Naples be
fore writing about it ; he could net write
about things he had net seen.
" Seutlicy, en his return from a tour in
Italy, was asked by a friend whether he
considered Shelley or Byren at the head of
the Satanic school. Southey, pointing te
his feet, said. ' The devil marks his own.'
Mr. Trelawny chuckled sardonically, and
he repeated the joke at intervals, as if he
'That accounts, I suppose, for the au
thor of 'The Vision of Judgment,' im
prisoning peer Southey in the pillory of his
imperishable satire? "
"Yes. Moere, who used te sugar ever
his spite and malice with the diamond
dust of wit, lest no time in repeating the
saying te his noble friend."
Mr. Trelawny informed me that"Ger that"Ger
emc, the French artist, had begun a pic
ture of the burning of Shelley's body. The
idea evidently gratified him. He referred
te it lepeatedly, picturing the scene,
which apparently increased in vividness
while he described it, till I, tee, seemed te
see with him the long sweep of sand, the
smoothly rippling waters of the bay, the
long dark line of the pine forest skirting
"Gerome, " he said, "ought te intro
duce the pines in his picture. They are
characteristic of Shelley and of the place.
Their tall, straight stems, forty feet high,
rose at equal distances one from the ether,
and although the sun never penetrated
through their interlacing boughs, it
would cast a red light en the trunks be
" I wish M. Gerome could hear your
description ; someone ought certainly te
send these details te him. "
" I will send a letter te Ressctti ; he can
communicate with the artist if he thinks
proper. Byren and myself were the only
persons en the spot besides three coast ceast
guards. Leigh Hunt remained in his car
riages en the edge of the pine forest.
Italian peasant-folk had also come te
witness the spectacle, but, with hereditary
geed breeding, did net press near, and
remained patiently watching in their gigs
carts aud ether vehicles. As I was pour
ing the incense wine and oil upon the
flames, I muttered, half te myself, 'I restore
te nature, through fire, the elements of
which this man was composed earth, air
and water ; everything is changed but net
annihilated. He is new a portion of that
which he worshiped .' I continued
for some time in this vein, when I sud
denly felt Byren clapping me en the
shoulder. ' Why, Trelawny,' he said, ' I
knew you wcie a pagan, but net that you
were a pagan priest ! Yeu de it very
Frem the obsequies of Shelley it was but
natural te revert te the death scene of
Lord Byren. He had a curious fancy in
his last illness te count the number et
beets in the room ; he persisted in saying
that he could only count three beets.
"This," Mr. Trelawny remarked, "was a
sign of the extraordinary activity of
Byren's intellect. Fer he had read in some
German author, net long before, that in
cipient madness showed itself by an inca
pacity of counting correctly ; and new in
his delirium this statement was evidently
preying en his mind, and he was trying ex
periments en himself."
"If Lord Byren had lived, what is your
opinion would have been the end of his
Greek expedition? "
" Why, he might have been president,
or king of Greece. Odysseus, the only
capable man the Greeks had, and myself
would have managed it."
' What a possibility ! But it would have
been tee like poetic justice, for this world
of fact, if he who se clorieuslv satnr of
' The Isles of Greece,' had also succceed te
" ' Childe Hareld ' represents Byren as
he was at hcait ; ' Den Juan ' as he liked
te appear in a circle, te the world."
Mr. Trelawny did net tell me all this
consecutively. He comes aud gees, and
he walks out of the house even,
before you are aware of his intentions.
The last time I saw him was at his place at
Semptiug, en the Seuth Downs. His own
particular sitting room there reminds one
considerably of a ship's cabin ; it is very
plainly furnished, without curtains, and
the wall paper brilliantly colored like a
child's picture book, has small square de
signs of different nations engaged in char
acteristic occupations. In the morning I
heard this wonderful old man, new aged
88, singing as he rose. He always
takes a kind of air-bath before dress
ing, draws his own water, and chops
his own weed. He breakfasts oil"
cold water, bread and fruit, which
he cats standing, en the principle
that aftn- lying in bed people should net
sit down agaia. The crumbs en his table
he scatters en the window-sill for the
birds, being very fend of animals generally.
He is extremely abstemious, taking only
one solid meal a day, and, like his beloved
Shelley, he prefers a diet consisting of
vegetables, milk and fruit, te meat. His
astonishing health and strength ought cer
tainly te make many converts te his mode
of living. He has invented a regular sys
tem of hygiene for himself, one of his the
ories being that you should never take het
feed or drink. He gees out every day,
no matter hew inclement the weather
may be, and of late years, when
he has chielly lived at Sompting, he strolls
te a duck-pond aud feeds the ducks. It
has also been reported te me that, although
he professes te scout children utterly, he
has a sneaking fondness for them and, if
unobserved, will walk with a stray child
clinging te his hand, and regale it with
" Turkish Delight," a favorite sweetmeat
of his own. Winter and summer he wears
the same costume no under-clothing and
no extra outer-clothing. He generally has
a cap en his head, which he also wears in
preference te a hat out of doers. His air
and appearance arc singularly commanding.
He is tall (six feet) but steeps slightly.
Under his bulging, fiercely con
tracted brews, his blue-gray, deep-set eyes
leek out with an unrelenting keenness of
vision ; his nose is curved like a hawk's ;
his mouth, grimly roselutc, still shows the
mark of the ball which fractured his jaw
when he was nearly assassinated in Greece
by a ruffianly fellow-countryman. The
whole character and bearing of the man
seem, indeed, like a reversion of the stern
old type of the Norse Viking or sea pirate;
a sea-king perchance charmed into hu
manity and gentleness by the spiritual
beauty of Shelley's genius.

Age or the Human Race.
Prof. Paige Predicts a Freeze of Sixteen
Iii a lecture the ether evening at Lake
View, III., Prof. Paige developed, among
many strong theories, the rapidly-growing
belief that the great ice period that ground
the rocks into soil has been attributed te a
time tee remote in the earth's history.
He said it had been the quite universally
accepted opinion that ice caps were
formed by a climate rendered cold by
reason of changed cosmic relations. It
was known that the eccentricity of the
earth's path around the sun was subject,
at long periods, te considerable change,
resulting in carrying the earth out from
the sun some fifteen millions of miles
farther at times than new. The earth's
great aphelion, together with changed con
ditions attributable te the precession
of the equinox, was believed te have
produced the great periods of ice in the
Frem this standpoint of reckoning Clif Clif
eord claims that man has been en earth
2,000,000 years. The professor said he be
lieved the modern tendency of thought
was in favor of a different view. During
the winter, in our northern hemisphere,
we were 2,500,000 miles nearer te the sun
than in summer. This helps te equalize
our climate, rendering the winters much
mere mild, and the summer's heat far less
than it would be if the conditions were re
versed. In the southern hemisphere the
exact reverse state of conditions exists.
They are nearer the sun in summer and
further off in winter.
They have cold winters and het sum
mers. At the Seuth Pele there is a vast
excess of ice ever that of the North
Pele. The vast accumulation of ice at
the Seuth Pele attracts the waters of
the ocean, changing the equilibrium of
the earth's centre, moving the equator te
the south, drawing off the waters of the
North Pele toward Seuth Pele. This
accounts for the clearly noticeable subsi
dence of waters in the north, and for the
fact that there is but little dry land in the
If the ages of ice can be charged np te
these causes, a glacial period is approach-
ing in the southern hemisphere, and will
be at its greatest height in about 5,300
years. The last period of ice in the north
ern hemisphere is also of equally recent
date, eccuring probably about G.000 years
age. The lecturer was of an opinion that,
if these recent views proved correct, there
would be a recurrence of the ice period in
about 16000 years in the northern hemis
phere. This view would also shorten the
time of man's existence en the glebe. It
was probably sale te say that man had net
existed mere then fifty or a hundred

" Dearest wc will net have a word of

"Play te that," she said, as she put down
" Who ever heard of anybody leading
out in tramps?" he exclaimed. "Why

" O, I can play this hand."
"Yeu can, eh? Well, I'll make it the

"Yeu dealt before."

"Why, yes you did! Wc have only

" Well, go ahead aud deal all the time

She turned up a club. He had only the

puckered up his mouth and seemed te
