663-1707, was also one of the translators of Latin satires. John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester, 1647-1680, is best known as a satirist. The Court of Love, here called "A Tale from Chaucer," is adapted from a poem preserved in only one manuscript (Library of Trinity College, Cambridge, R.3.19). It was attributed to Chaucer by Stowe in his 1561 edition, and accepted by other editors thereafter, but it is not actually Chaucer's work. Skeat prints it with other apocryphal works in the Supplement (1897)to his 6-volume edition of Chaucer (Oxford, 1894). Based on its language, he dates it to the early 16th century. The pseudo-Chaucerian Court of Love is 1442 lines long, in rhyme royal stanzas (7 lines rhymed abbaacc). The adaptation, only a bit over 300 lines and in heroic couplets, omits the detailed recounting of the Laws of Love which makes up the bulk of the earlier poem; it also omits the "Birds' Matins" that closes the poem. The combination of Chaucer and Ovid is not as arbitrary as

desire of Sidney's heart; and since it was composed in a foreign tongue, what could be more fitting than that Sidney's sister, the famous Countess of Pembroke, who shared so largely in Sidney's literary tastes and literary gifts, should undertake to give it an English form? It may have been on her part a pious offering to his manes, an in 1590, four years after her brother's death, her version was complete.There is an edition of this by Miss Alice Luce, Literarhistorische Forschungen, 1897, but I am told it is out of print, and at any rate I have been unable to procure it.

connected; but very little more was done until after 1870, when the work was taken in hand seriously (though at first with too little regard to the late classical period, see LR 244-245), and the forum and Sacra via cleared from the Tabularium to the arch of Titus. Work stopped again in 1885, and was not resumed again until 1898, when extensive excavations were begun by Boni and carried to the lowest strata at many points over the whole area. In this connection a passage in LR 240, written in 1897, just before Boni's excavations began, should be quoted. ' It is necessary to remind the reader that the excavations of the Forum and of the Palatine have nowhere been carried to the proper depth. We have satisfied ourselves with laying bare the remains of the late empire, without taking care to explore the earlier and deeper strata.' At the same time came the addition of the site of the basilica Aemilia and of the comitium; and the demolition of the church of S. Maria Liberatrice rendered i

he feared those first ominous stabs of pain; but when the spasms were steadily recurrent, and no doctor could give him any relief, Stanley accepted the pain and weakness, silently and stoically. Here, for instance, is an entry in his Journal, in 1897:-- Pain has commenced — unable to take even milk without sickness; am resigned for a long illness — it is now inevitable; shall not be able to attend Parliament again this Session. I knew by the sound of his voice, when he called me in the middle of the night, that the pain had come; sometimes it left quite suddenly, and we looked at each other, I, pale with fear, lest it should return. In 1897, the attack recorded above did not last, as he had feared, but, in 1898, at Cauterets, in the Pyrenees, he was again taken ill. He writes in his Journal, August 15th:-- Felt the first severe symptoms of a recurring attack. Have had two attacks of fever, and now have steady pain since Sunday night, but rose to-day.

Bull-Dogs earned their name. Among the first to respond to Lincoln's call, they enlisted in June, 1861, and when their first service was over they stepped forward to a man, specifying no term of service but putting their names on the Honor Roll of For the War. Brigadier-General King, a division commander in this battle, was a soldier by profession, and a diplomatist and journalist by inheritance — for he was a graduate of West Point, a son of Charles King, editor of the New York American in 1897, and a grandson of the elder Rufus, an officer of the Revolution and Minister to the Court of St. James. He had left the army in 1836 to become Assistant Engineer of the New York & Erie Railroad, a post he gave up to become editor of the Daily Advertiser, and subsequently of the Milwaukee Sentinel. At the outbreak of the war Lincoln had appointed him Minister to Rome, but he asked permission to delay his departure, and was made a Brigadier-General of Volunteers. Later he resigned as Minist
at Gettysburg, where he was wounded three times, and was made major-general on August 3d following. He was engaged in opposing the advance of Sheridan toward Lynchburg in 1864, and showed such high qualities as a cavalry commander that he was commissioned lieutenant-general in August of that year, and placed in command of all of Lee's cavalry. He was Governor of South Carolina from 1876 to 1878; then United States Senator until 1891. He was United States Commissioner of Railroads, 1893 to 1897. His death occurred in 1902. designated to lead Jackson's troops in the final charge. The soul of this brilliant cavalry commander was as full of sentiment as it was of the spirit of self-sacrifice. He was as musical as he was brave. He sang as he fought. Placing himself at the head of Jackson's advancing lines and shouting to them Forward, he at once led off in that song, Won't you come out of the Wilderness? He changed the words to suit the occasion. Through the dense woodland, ble

This is true, even when the latter are represented in full army overcoats, with swords and the like, as was customary to some extent with postmasters, quartermasters, commissariat and hospital attendants. The features are distinctive of the men who have stood up under fire, and undergone the even severer ordeal of submission to a will working for the common good, involving the sacrifice of personal independence.
