iative is particularly prominent. A sentimental bishop was the first to suggest the importation of Africans to America in order to relieve the Indians from the labor which their spirit could not brook. It was a philanthropic business at the start. Indians would not work, Negroes would. Here again the human factor asserted itself. The cavalier immigrants of the South did not like to work, the Puritans of the North did; hence one of the reasons that slavery flourished only below Mason and Dixon's line. Mr. Simons refers to this fact as one of those strange happenings called coincidences ! The interesting point lies, he goes on to say, in the fact that in Europe it was just the cavalier who represented the old feudal organization of society with its servile system of labor, while the Puritan is the representative of the rapidly rising bourgeoisie which was to rest upon the status of wageslavery. Strange happening, coincidence, interesting point ! This is certainly most naive. The

han the black man's wisdom. It is The leopard's Spots, by the Rev. Thomas Dixon, a shining light in the Southern Baptist Church; and it temt of the tiger rather than in that of the Christian minister that Mr. Dixon treats the delicate issues of the race question which is the subjbeen faced in the right way. Lynchings, burnings at the stake-and Mr. Dixon depicts one for us — have failed to decrease the number of them. will not cure savagery, and the tiger cannot tame the leopard. Mr. Dixon seems to see this when he speaks of the mob as a thousandlegged bn shows far more of this than the author of The leopard's Spots. Mr. Dixon may not know it, but he seems to believe in a gospel of hate. Ononce beaten to death. Surely this is the spirit of the tiger. Mr. Dixon's ideal Negro is the old plantation servant who despises his own ing that of their colleagues in the North.

ber, 1859), was typical of the way that dramatist had of making hay out of the popular sunshine of others. William DeMille wanted to treat of the negro's social isolation, but compromised when he came to write Strongheart (Hudson Theatre, 30 January, 1905) by making the hero an Indian; and he later fell into the conventional way of treating the war when he wrote The Warrens of Virginia (Belasco Theatre, 3 December, 1907). The more sensational aspects of the negro question, as treated by Thomas Dixon in The Clansman (Liberty Theatre, 8 January, 1906) were wisely softened and made into an elaborate record of the Civil War, in the panoramic moving picture, The birth of a nation (New York, 1915). Though Ridgely Torrence, in a series of one-act plays (Granny Maumee, The Rider of Dreams, and Simon the Cyrenian, Garden Theatre, 5 April, 1917), has sought poetically to exploit negro psychology, the only American dramatist who has approached the topic boldly, melodramatically, and effectively

s of the preceding generation; and they had the satisfaction to see several of a numerous family grow up and distinguish themselves not only in support of the same principles, but in the graces of a Christian life. George Benson was soon remarked for a seriousness of temper, and a disposition to study, which induced his parents to devote him to the Christian ministry; and for this purpose, after having passed through the usual course of grammar learning, he was sent to the academy kept by Dr. Dixon, of Whitehaven, already mentioned as having had the honour to number Taylor of Norwich, among its alumni. Here, however, he continued only about a year, after which he removed to the University of Glasgow. His family appear to have been orthodox, and he himself was brought up in Calvinistic principles, which, however, he abandoned at an early period in the course of his preparatory studies. Indeed, he does not appear at any time to have considered himself as bound down to the profession

blessed be God, I think I could refuse the greatest honours, preferments, and pleasures, proposed as temptations, to make me drop my present resolutions. I hope I am in some measure qualified for the work, though important. I have no learning to boast of, yet I trust I have so much as, by the assistance of God, and by diligent application, may capacitate me to be useful, among plain simple people especially. He received his theological education in an academy at Whitehaven, conducted by Dr. Dixon; from which school also issued Dr. Caleb Rotheram, Dr. Benson, and other eminent Presbyterian divines. His devotion to Hebrew literature began at a very early period of his life. Among his Mss. is a Hebrew grammar, compiled for his own use, and finished when he was only eighteen years of age. In the year 1715, having completed his academical studies, he entered upon the ministerial office at Kirkstead, in Lincolnshire, where he remained for eighteen years, notwithstanding that it seem

eligious opinions of a certain class, it seems reasonable to conclude that this was the prevailing tendency of the instructions they received, influenced, perhaps unconsciously, by the private opinions of the instructor. Thus we find that Dr. Thomas Dixon, who in the year 1710, and for several years afterwards conducted an academy at Whitehaven, was the preceptor of Taylor of Norwich, Benson, Rotheram, Winder of Liverpool, and several others well known in the succeeding age as decided Arians,o meet with any record) of his early history. In 1719 he quitted Whitehaven to settle at Bolton in Lancashire, where he remained till his death, in 1733. It is not known that any production of his found its way before the public. His son, Mr. Thomas Dixon, was educated under the care of Dr. Rotheram, at Kendal, and in 1751 settled at Bolton, on the decease of his father's successor, Mr. Buck. Here he died in 1754, at the early age of thirty-three; non annis, sed laude plenus, according to th

son. He was instructed in classical learning by Mr. Anthony Ireland, at that time master of the free Grammar School at Blencowe, and pursued his academical studies, preparatory to the exercise of the Christian ministry, under the direction of Dr. Dixon, at Whitehaven. In the year 1716, he accepted an invitation from the Protestant dissenting congregation at Kendal, and became their stated pastor; a station in which he remained through life. Nothing is recorded of him till the year 1733; butby one of Dr. Rotheram's pupils, Mr. Lowthion, of Newcastle, in a sermon on the reasonableness of ministers speaking freely to their people, preached at the ordination of Mr. Caleb Rotheram, his tutor's son and successor, And the names of Seddon, Dixon, Holland, Walker, &c., which appear in the list of students educated at this institution, are sufficient to satisfy any one in the slightest degree acquainted with the history of Protestant dissent during the last century, that these principles w
