A Famous Book
EY JESSIE E. EINOW
The great event of his life was transpiring
for a lad, as he lay under an old tree in the
ruined arbor of an old-fashioned garden,
Intently reading a book. He was as hearty
and as hungry as befitted his a: e of thirteen
years; yet the repeated summo • a to the din
ner table passed unheeded, as i e turned the
leaves in feverish haste—for i was young
Walter Scott devouring Percy'."Religues."
Latin, law, and logic, the le: fling of his
native land, had not awaken • d ins •child
mind to any love of books; bu his memory
was stored with ancient legend: and uncouth
rhymes caught front the lips if peasants—
a lore condemned by the le: i ing of his
time to oblivion as the foolish is utterings of
bygone ages of ignorance. Ii • re, in all the'
dignity of a printed volume, tae lad had for
the first time found a recogniti in of the lit
erature that be loved; here wa • the ancient
ballad presented, not as the d • spieed dron
ings of an old crone crouchie , upon a clot-
ter's hearth, but as the authe tic present
ment of the life and manners of the past,
and as the true source from w i Joh could be
drawn the unwritten history o the people;
and adding rapture to his stu i ions delight,
the blood of the bravest of the border chief
tains coursed through the boy': veins, keep
ing time to the chivalric deeds of his ances
tors, while a true poetic feels i g responded
with unfailing precision to the simple fer
vor of the ancient bards.
Tinctured with the prejudic -s of the time,
Percy presented his work wit i an apology,
and modernized and spelled .is.. text 'lest
the rode strength of. ;the brie .81 might ii!.. -
fend the affected fastidiousne : of the age;
yet, even in his faltering hand-, his subject
revealed itself as ~guide to t e philosophy
of history, and though meager in details
and shallow in knowledge, ercy's " Rel
kyles" became the spring -boar' from which
Walter Scott vaulted into fam .
Early in the sixteenth centu y Spain bad
gathered her ballads, and nea the close of
the same century Denmark lad, collected
hers; but it was not until 172; tbailhe first
printed collection appeared in I ngland, and
in the next year Allan Rams .y begun the
work in Scotland.
Such literature had been lo g doomed to
neglect in England by the.turaulent and il
literate nobles, and to cdntem it by the sol
emn pedantry of the schola s, and could
only find a welcome among the Ignorant
populace, where, by a happy hence, an oc
casional broad sheet was rest ed -from de

and nature to a sophisticated public, which
was compelled by bis genius into unwilling
admiration. /, •
At length the work was published in 17-
65, under the title of --• , ,Beliques of Ancient
English Poetry; consisting of old Heroic
Ballads, Songs,. and-other pieces .of our
Earlier Poets.. tchietly ,tif. the .lyric
rogretlar-mra fiC)Wre' pieceii; Itifer`date."
The title furnished a true index to the
text, and Percy did indeed hint in his pref
ace apd notes that he had used his manu
script merely its a foundation for his Super
structure; yet he also allowed it to be in
ferred that the published work was to a
great degree a transcript of the original, and
took little care to point out with precision
either his alterations or additions. This in
cautious claim provoked criticism, and his
manifest inaccuracies were detected by the
,students of olds English, who justly con
denmedthe book as an Untrustworthy guide
in an ainiUst-uknown department of litera
Despite this I hostility; ..ae___publication
slowly won its way to popularity,--the-med
ley of the new and old perhaps presentin
as much of the genuine " Reliques" as the
public was prepared to accept, and the work
was received into favor': side by side with
the other questionably Veracious antiquity
The judgment of the general public was
undoubtedly mirrored in Percy's own apol
ogetic dedication to the Countess. of Nor
thumberland, in which ,he fears even to
hope that the barbarous productions of un
polished ages " can obtain the approbation
or notice other maw adorns courts by her
,presence end diffuses'elegancehy her exam
ple. But this impropriety, it is preimmed,
will disappear when it is declared that these
poems are presented to your Ladyship, not
as labors of art, but as effusions of nature
showing the first efforts of ancient genius."
The criticisms of scholeo subsequently
led ton doubt of the authenticity of the
work,, and in-the fourth edition a nephew of
Percy took occasion to re-assert the verita
ble existence of the manuscript volume,
which has ever since been preserved as a
precious heirloom in the family, and occa
sionally, as a favor, has been offered to the
perusal of a chosen few of the literati.
The manuscript was believed by Hum
phrey Pitt to have originally belonged to
the library of Thomas Blount, an author on
legal topics who published about the year
1879. it is a long and narrow folio, much
torn by the ruthless hands of Mr. Pitt's
housemaid, and even fui titer mutilated by
the carelessness of the binder in whose
hands it was placed by Percy. It furnishes
no hint as to the identity of the compiler;
and although the handwriting has been as
cribed to an earlier period, it may be confi
dently dated to the reign of Charles IL by
the fact that it contains the cavalier song of
"The Kinge enioyes his rights ageism."
The increased interest in early. -literature
during late years. has caused numerous ef
' forts to obtain the publication of the origi
nal; hut the Percy family -have' constantly
refused permission, until the zealous schol
aratiip of an American, co-operating with
several English colaborere, at length over
•came all difficulties, and with great care and
considerable expense the text of %the mann
sci iv, has beau published under the 'title Of
" Bishop Percy 'e Folio Mari useript."
Percy's Reliques must neverthelesE atiti

work which gave impulse to modern inves

In the civil 'war between the Parliament
and King Charles I. the two parties had ta
ken up . arms and were vigorously carrying
on the conflict. '" The king's army had been
defeated several times, and those of his ad
herents taken with arms in their bands were
led before judges appointed by Cromwell
in every town, to be condemned as rebels.
Sir Nicholas Newcastle was one of those
judges. He was a man of austere manner,
but without fanaticism;. his devotion to the
new Government 'was well known, and
Cromwell bad a special esteem for- him.--:

to serve in arms for- the cause which he

and fell to on the provisions set 'before him'
with as good an appetite as any of them.
Sir IsTicholas returned to his placeat- the

conversation that bad been inter,ittpted by
the arrival of the soldiers: -
" Well, -I was telling you," be continued,•

which was close beside me. It
.gave way at
my grasp, and to my horror I saw that I
had made in it' a tear big enough to see the
next class through. The two mesterskurned
around at the noise, and at Once" perceived
the damage that had been done. The blame
appeared to lie'.betiveen me and theboynext
the curtain on the other side, but my con
fusion soon pointed me out as the culprit,
and my master angrily ordered me to come
and have a dozen blows of the cane. Igot
up staggering like a drunken man; I tried
to speak to ask pardon, butt- fear glued my
tongue to my mouth, my knees trembled
under me, a cold perspiration broke out on
my face. The instrument of punishment
was already raised over me, when I heard ,
some one pay:
" ' Do not punish him. it was my fault!'
"It was the boy on the other side of the
curtain. He was at once called forward,
and received the dozen blows. My first im
pulse was to prevent this unjust punish
ment by confessing the truth, but I could
not summon up courage, and when the drat
blow had been given I was ashamed
"When the flogging was over the bky
passed near me with bleeding hands; and.
whispered to me with a smile that I shall
never forget all my life:
." Do not meddle with the curtain again,
youngster; tlie cane hurts.'
" I sank down in a fit of sobbing, and
they had to send me out of thd room.
" Since that day I have been disgusted
with my cowardice, and have done all
can to overcome it. I hope I have not been
altogether unsuccessful," . •
' -" And do you know this generous fellow?"
asked One of his guests. " - Have you ever
seen him again?"
" Never, unfortun,ately. He was not in
my form, and left the school" soon after
wards. Ah! God knows that I have often
wished to meet with the gallant fellow who
suffered so muclrfer me, and that I would
give years of my life to be able to slake
hands with him at my table."
At that moment a glass was held out to
ward Sir Nicholas, who lifted his eyes with
astonishment. It was the royalkt prisdner,
'‘vito laughingly proposed a toast:
"To the memory of .be torn curtain at
Westminster! But 'llion My word, Sir
Nicholas," he said, " your ,recollection is
not so accurate as mine.' It was not twelve
blows that I received, but twice twelve, for
having exposed another' to punishment and
not at once declaring myself to blame."
" You are right, now I remember!" ex
claimed the judge.
" And your worthy master, if I am not
mistaken, made you write a Latin essay on

Nicholaii'-buti_s_it.possible that it could

family who had played the traitor. ?Lip
father has already died in arms, and I ex
pect no better fate. Never mind, I only
ask one thing—God save the king!"
With these words the royalist returned to
his place among the soldiers, and continued
his repast. • •
Sir .Nicholas sat silent and- thoughtful.—.
That very night, after having given orders
that the prisoner was to be well treated, he
left home without saying where he was go
lug, and was absent for three days. On the
fourth day he arrived, and ordered the roy
alist officer to be brought before him.
",Are you going to settle my affair at
length?" asked he coolly. "It is time to do
so, were it only for huManity's sake. They
treat ine 'so well at your house, Sir Nicho
las, that'before, long I shall come tta wish to
retain my : life."
"My friend," said the judge with a grave
face, but in a voice trembling with emotion,
"twenty years ago you said to me, • ' - Do not
meddle with the curtain, youngster, for the

The Result of Prohibition.
O 0 the Bth of May, 1872, there came up'
for ebate in the Britsh House of Commons
the übject of the suppression of the liquor
tr cin those parishes o localities where
two hirds of the vote a shodld decide
a 4 license .. The deb te ran on through
the ay, and was not resu ed until July.--
The strong objection urged against themea
shie was that in America, and especially' in
Maine, prohibition had been found to be of
no benefit; that liquor was sold in Maine
law States as openly, as freely, and ig quan
'titles as great as in the license States .
The " United Kingdom . Alliance for the
Suppression of the Liquor Traffic" applied
to me to furnish them wits certificates from
official sources that would hare authority
and weight, to show what the facts really
In answer to their application I have for
iv arded to them 1. A certificate from the
Mayor of Portland, all the ex-Mayors, Judge
of the Municipal Court, Judge of the Supe

the effect that the liquor traffic is very great
