In regard., o the Manx language,
according to he opinion of a learned
philologist, " the Irish is the parent
tongue : the ottish Gaelic is Irish
gripped of a ew inflections'; and the
Manx language is merely qaeliz, with
a few tpeculiat words, and, disguised
by a corrupt system of orthography."
It is said that ht the beginning of the
present cen , the Mann tongue
was generally understood throughout
the Isle, and as used in the Church
8,21-vices in the remote district.
There are ex ant, translations into
the language, not only of. , the Bible,
but also of. iton's •Paradise Lost,

As regards the religion, anciera
and Modern, f the Isle of Man, it is
maintained b some writers that the
Druids once eld sway throughout
the country :while from the number
of Mountains', etc., that bear the
name of different animals, it is
thought that t an. early period the
worship of be sts prevailed there.
According t tradition, (which says
1 .
so much orh'in, while ' history says
so little), St., atriek was providen
tially cast as ore upon the Island
near Peel, which still bears his name ',-
and by' his p werful eloquence and,
astonishing , Miracles succeeded in es
tablishing°the Christian' religion in
the country. It is even stated by an
i n
early writer t - "he slew all of that
ysle which fo k not their sorcery,
and christen the rest." A succes

An earlier Norwegian . king (Eric,
Oirigh, or Orrey) is however - held in

More plainly, 3 armed legs, bent at

The artist took a....great' deal of

So years went on.- Oftentimes, as
ho looked tip to the face on the &w

to paint that figure and hang. it in

• "Come to my 'room and let me
paint tour portrait, and I will give'
you all you ask," said the artist. '
