accordingly erased from his will the section in which he had given his dwelling-house to the town! The system of exchanges, by which neighboring ministers preached in each other's pulpits, was in full activity during Mr. Turell's ministry; and the Medford church was instructed occasionally by Rev. Messrs. Colman, Cooper, Gardner, and Byles, of Boston; Prince, Warren, and Clapp, of Cambridge; Stimson, of Charlestown; Coolidge, of Watertown; Flagg, of Woburn; Lowell and Tufts, of Newbury; Parkman, of Westbury; Parsons, of Bradford; and many more. This wide connection in ministerial brotherhood shows Mr. Turell to have enjoyed the respect and esteem of the clergy, as well as the approbation and confidence of the churches. President Allen, in his Biographical Dictionary, speaks of him thus:-- He was an eminent preacher, of a ready invention, a correct judgment, and fervent devotion, who delivered divine truth with animation, and maintained discipline in his church with boldness t

to anything else that the world has ever seen. It was something like what the New England town-meeting would be if it were continually required to adjust complicated questions of international polity, if it were carried on in the very centre or point of confluence of all contemporary streams of culture, and if it were in the habit every few days of listening to statesmen and orators like Hamilton or Webster, jurists like Marshall, generals like Sherman, poets like Lowell, historians like Parkman. Nothing in all history has approached the high-wrought intensity and brilliancy of the political life of Athens. On the other hand, the smallness of the independent city, as a political aggregate, made it of little or no use in diminishing the liability to perpetual warfare which is the curse of all primitive communities. In a group of independent cities, such as made up the Hellenic world, the tendency to warfare is almost as strong, and the occasions for warfare are almost as freque

Parkman, Francis 1823-1893 Author; born in Boston, Mass., Sept. 16, 1823; graduated at Harvard College in 1844, and fitted himself for the legal profession, but soon abandoned it. He made a tour of the Rocky Mountains, and lived for some time among the Dakota Indians. The hardships he Francis Parkman. there endured caused a permanent impairment of his health, and through life he suffered from a chronic disease and partial blindness. Notwithstanding these disabilities he long maintained ry labors were in the field of inquiry concerning the power of the French, political and ecclesiastical, in North America. So careful and painstaking were his labors that he was regarded as authority on those subjects which engaged his pen. Mr. Parkman's first work was The California and Oregon trail, in which he embodied his experience in the Far West. His first work on the French in America was The conspiracy of Pontiac (1851). It was followed by Pioneers of France in the New world (1865)

He made many important researches in Indian philology, Mexican history and antiquities, and early Spanish expeditions in North America. He aided Bancroft, Parkman, and Sparks in their researches, and published An inquiry into the authenticity of documents concerning a discovery of North America claimed to have been made by Verrazano. He died in New York City, Jan. 5, 1871.

always understand one another; and thus they were absolutely prevented from imposing on Boston anything like the yoke which Christopher North at one time imposed on Edinburgh. This was still more true of others just outside the circle,--Motley, Parkman, Thoreau,--and in this way the essential variety in unity was secured. Then there were other men, almost equally gifted, who touched the circle, or might have touched it but that they belonged to the class of which Emerson says, Of what use is re races than any other horse in America. Yet it is to be remembered that there is a compensation in all these matters: the most laborious historian is pretty sure to be superseded within thirty years as it has already been prophesied that even Parkman will be-by the mere accumulation of new material; while the more discursive writer may perchance happen on some felicitous statement that shall rival in immortality-Fletcher of Saltoun's one sentence, or the single sonnet of Blanco White.

s as Jeanie Deans, Meg Merrilies, and Madge Wildfire. Many of Cooper's subordinate masculine characters, on the contrary, are entirely unconventional, strong, fresh, characteristic, human. Harvey Birch the spy, Leather-Stocking the woodsman, Long Tom Coffin the sailor, Chingachgook the Indian, are direct and vital creations of genius. In his interpretation of Indian character, moreover, Cooper discerned the presence of a poetic element which was ignored later even by such an historian as Parkman, but which has since been recognized as actual fact. His long introductions and his loose-jointed plots he had in common with Scott; but, like Scott, he found it easy to hold his readers when once he had gained their attention. He had, too, Scott's faculty of realism in the treatment of minor incidents and characters; and where they led the way, the best literary practice has followed.
