2, when his central will was already loosening and his faculties were losing their edge. It was at this time that Charles Eliot Norton talked with Carlyle, and heard the old man, eight years older than Emerson, expatiate on the fundamental differencstinctions between right and wrong, and to excuse guilt on the plea of good intentions or good nature. Letters of Charles Eliot Norton, vol. I, pp. 503 and 506. For some time there had been a gradual relaxation of Emerson's hold on life. Thoughose who were content to rest in habit and compromise. In his old age Emerson gave this account of his conduct to Charles Eliot Norton: He had come to the conviction that he could not administer the Lord's Supper as a divinely appointed, sacreceiving it in theirs. But he saw that such an arrangement was impossible, and held to his resignation. Letters of Charles Eliot Norton, vol. I, p. 509.

, and have usually attended what are called primary meetings, often presiding at them. There is nothing exceptional in all this; it is a common thing for American citizens to have rendered as much service as is here stated, and in the university city where I dwell it is the rule, and not the exception, for professors and instructors to take their share in public duties. Some of those most faithful in this respect have been among the most typical and fastidious scholars, such as Professor Charles Eliot Norton and the late Professor Francis James Child. I confess that it makes me somewhat indignant to hear such men stigmatized as mere idealists and dilettantes by politicians who have never in all their lives done so much to purify and elevate politics as these men have been doing daily for many years. Side by side with this delusion there is an impression, equally mistaken, that college-bred men are disliked in politics, and have to encounter prejudice and distrust, simply by reaso

is the only immortality. And surely the reader is impressed with the way in which a woman's genius, even if not of the very highest order, may retain its hold after her death, on seeing the late statements of Mr. Routledge, the great publisher of cheap books in England, as to the continued demand for Mrs. Hemans's poetry. In the last generation the pure and melodious muse of this lady had great reputation; her American editor was Professor Andrews Norton, father of the present Professor Charles Eliot Norton, and one of the most cultivated critics of his day; and it appears from the late memoirs of Garrison that her verses were long the favorite food of that strong and heroic mind. Yet it has been the custom to speak of her popularity as a thing of the past. Now arrives Mr. Routledge, and gives the figures as to his sales of the different poets in a single calendar year. First comes Longfellow, with the extraordinary sale of 6000 copies; then we drop to Scott, with 3170: Shakespe

nt factor in this household was Mrs. Higginson's older sister, Anne, who was universally beloved and respected in the community, being commonly known as Aunt Nancy. Wentworth Higginson always spoke of her affectionately as the aunt who brought me up. On her seventieth birthday, he wrote her, You seem to me no older than when I used to play with blocks upon the floor of our common chamber, or when you assisted me to insert myself for the first time in nankeen inexpressibles. Professor Charles Eliot Norton, in a letter to Colonel Higginson in 1904, says of these sisters: They [your friendly words] bring to mind my Mother's affection for your Mother, and for Aunt Nancy, who was as dear an Aunt to us children at Shady Hill as she was to you and your brothers and sisters. What dear and admirable women! What simple, happy lives they led! In their days of prosperity, the Higginsons exercised a lavish hospitality. Mrs. Higginson adapted herself readily, however, to changed fortunes
