olution, that the latest things are apt to be recognized as the most precious throughout all nature. Up to the time of George Sand or George Eliot it had not seemed possible that a woman could be a great novelist, or up to the time of Elizabeth Barrett Browning that she could be a great poet, or up to the time of Rosa Bonheur a great painter, or up to the days of Mrs. Siddons and Rachel a great actor, or until Mrs. Somerville's day a great scientific writer.

Meanwhile, as there is no profession — not even the stage — in which a woman is not still a little handicapped, it is natural that she should disguise her work as man's work; and that Miss Murfree should find complete shelter under the very misleading name of Charles Egbert
