er girlish library now lie before me, dingy and time-worn, with her name in varying handwriting from the early Mary S. Potter to the later Mary S. P. Longfellow. They show many marked passages and here and there a quotation. The collection begins with Miss Edgeworth's Harry and Lucy; then follow somewhat abruptly Sabbath Recreations, by Miss Emily Taylor, and The Wreath, a selection of elegant poems from the best authors, —these poems including the classics of that day, Beattie's Minstrel, Blair's Grave, Gray's Elegy, Goldsmith's Traveller, and some lighter measures from Campbell, Moore, and Burns. The sombre muse undoubtedly predominated, but on the whole the book was not so bad an elementary preparation for the training of a poet's wife. It is a touching accidental coincidence that one of the poems most emphatically marked is one of the few American poems in these volumes, Bryant's Death of the Flowers, especially the last verse, which describes a woman who died in her youthful

The Origin of Familiar Phrases. --The term "masterly inactivity" originated with Sir James Macintosh. "God tempers the wind to the shorn lamb," which everybody who did not suppose it was in the Bible credited to Sterne, was stolen by him from George Herbert, who translated it from the French of Henry Estienne. "The cup that cheers but not inebriates," was conveyed by Cower from Bishop Berkeley, in his "Siris." Wadsworth's "The child is father to the man," is traced from him to Milton, and from Milton to Sir Thomas Moore. "Like angels' visits, few and far between," is the offspring of Hook; it is not Thomas Campbell's original thought. Old John Norris (1658) originated it, and after him Robert Blair, as late as 1745. "There's a guide time coming" is Scott's phrase in "Rob Roy," and the "almighty dollar" is Washington living's happy thought.
