example was a perpetual rebuke to the conceitedness of learning, the vanity of youthful scholarship, and the habit of vain and shallow thought. His influence is deeply stamped on the literature of Harvard. Side by side with the North American Review grew up another periodical which, though denominational, was a sort of adjunct to it,--the Christian Examiner, established in 1824. It was first edited by Rev. John G. Palfrey, D. D., of Cambridge, and afterwards for a long time by the Rev. William Ware of Cambridge, better known by his historical romances Zenobia and Probus. These tales had long a high reputation, and reprints of them still appear in England. The Christian Examiner existed for forty-five years, and although for many years it paid nothing to contributors, it yet rendered distinct literary service, whatever may be thought of its theology. Nor must be forgotten another important annual publication always edited in Cambridge,--The American Almanac. Its main founder

, of The Emancipator; while Rev. Thomas Whittemore of this town was editor of The Universalist Magazine and of The Trumpet. But the list of Cambridge men who have been prominently known as journalists and editors and writers for magazines strings out to a portentous length. Among many others there are Francis Ellingwood Abbott, Rev. Edward Abbott, Professor Charles F. Dunbar, Mr. Joseph Henry Allen, Francis Foxcroft, Professors Francis Bowen, Charles Eliot Norton, and Andrews Norton, Rev. William Ware, William Brewster, William D. Howells, Samuel H. Scudder, Horace E. Scudder, and Thomas Wentworth Higginson, who so gracefully links the younger and older generation of Cambridge writers. Yet with all this roll of Cambridge men famous in this sphere of work it remained for an obscure stranger to make the first venture in local journalism in our city. From 1842 until 1845 the residents of Old Cambridge were earnestly striving, both in town meeting and in the legislature, to be set o

leaves Messala, after the thrilling episode of the chariot race, crippled and stripped of his fortune. And yet, following even such pagan deeds, Ben-Hur's discovery that he cannot serve the Messiah with the sword does not quite seem an anticlimax, though the conclusion, dealing with the Passion, like the introductory chapters on the meeting of the Magi, falls somewhat below the level of the revenge theme in energy and simplicity. Compared with other romances of this sort, however, with William Ware's See Book II, Chap. VII. or Ingraham's, for instance, Ben-Hur easily passes them all, by a vitality which has a touch of genius. It passes, too, Wallace's third romance, written while he was ambassador to Turkey, The Prince of India or why Constantinople fell (1893), a long, dull romance with the Wandering Jew as principal figure. Edward Eggleston (1837-1902), a clergyman like Holland and Roe, and like General Wallace a native of Indiana, though nourished in the school which made
