Stratford-upon-Avon, June _2.
It has again been my fortune to dwell for a
time In Stratford-upon-Avon and t>> renew the
old friendships and freshen ths old association.-.
of that bellowed pla.-. Borne "f tbe kind facee
that used to smile a welcome an- seen no more,
and som.- of the familiar moorta have bera reno.
Tated; bul in general the old borough remains
Unchanged and Hs alluremet't for the Shake.
epeare scholar ls as potent as -vcr. In all Eng?
land ibero ls noi a clenncr, mora decorous, <??*?
more restful town than Stratford-upon-Avon, and
even to l""k upon lt. as you draw near, is to re?
ceive a suggestion od pence nnd comfort. The
physical prospect is still much the sam- that
travellers long have known. The red brick
dwellings shine amid the trees; th- Sower
spangled meadows stretch away on every hand;
the green hills, aprinkled over with cps,- and
villa, glimmer through silver mist, all round Ihe
lovely Vale of the Red Morse, Wet,-.nibo In tbe
north, with its conepicuouo monument; Meon in
the south, rugged and bold. Red Hill In tho
west; and far away eastward, 1" yond a wide and
smiling area of farms nn.l villages, the crests of
Edgehill, at Radley and Rising Sun, where
once the armies of King Charles on
fronted his Roundhead foe, Tbe summer, this
year, came slowly. The English .lune, until
about the ?ist. was like th- American March.
There was frost and In some places there WUS
light sn,,w. and we wera Compelled to hav- fre?
quent fires,?so that life was often bleak and
dreary. Bul all ihe while tho verdure deepened
in color; the roads and th- hedges were free from
dust; In sheltered pieces the white snd coral
hawthorn was abundant; and the thick
pleached elms, the gr?n lanes, end the daisi.-d
meadows glistened with emerald sh?ii; and j
presently _. day came when WO ceased fo ex?
change Christmas greetings, and rejected the
overcoat, and almost discarded the umbrella s
day when England, which had been ell frowns,
decked herself once more in smiles and we could
look upon her face without n shiver. It ts a face
that can wear mary expressions, hut when
propitious it ls a face which to See ls ? i love -
end nowhere ls it more softly beautiful than In
stately "Warwickshire, and around tho home and
haunts C'f Shakespeare.
The restoration of the Guild Hal) and Grammer
School nt Btmtford-apon-Avon has been sub
Btantlally completed, and lt has been .lone with
excellent judgment and taste. That good work
?was planned and begun by the late Charl- a Ed
ward Flower, and the coe! of lt was borne by
him. It has been curried forward under the
Buperiniendence nf his widow, whose noble dc
votlon to every task and purpose cherished by
him is that at reverent memory and affectionate
zeal. The visitor to the Guild Hal! oees it HOW
much as it was when Shakespeare saw ir, us a
boy. It ls a mom about 76 feet long by ZS feet
?wide, and about 12 feet high. Three sides of lt
are panelled,?the panel)- resting Upon a bas- of
timber and rock. The c-iling is ..f timber and
plaster and the floor ls of stone. One
massive timber runs down the centre of
the celling, fr,,rn north to South, and with
that the other timbers of the celling run
parallel?the Intermediate spaces being filled
with plaster, finished smoothly, though with
an uneven surface. On th- western side
are four spandrels, and also, high In th- wall,
nine wind, vs, each about 4 f.-t ly 2, eel near
together and Siled with small, Laded, diamond
shaped pams of white glass. At th. north end
ls a large oak d< or.?made In imitation >,f the
doors of old.?opening Into a passage leading
from the street, un the west, to the quadrangle
and "Pedagogue's House," "ti th- east. Upon the
eastern wall there are four spendrela, and there
is a brick chimney-breast, and nenr thal la s
large casement, made of green and white glass,
through which you may look Info the quad
rangle. At the saith end th-re are thirteen larg"
upright and three small timbers, stained bia k, -
as. Indeed, most of th- timbers are, whether new
or cid,?and between these th- pleater reveals
traces of ancient frescoes. Five panels of the
fresco are comprised within a larg- oak frame
and are covered with glass Th- walls, above
the panels, are plastered and ar- finish'tl *wlth
a smooth man colored surface, Th- ii,.rtli end
of the hall adjoins the venerable chapel tower
of the Guild. tue Of the mosl pb tv .que ob?
jects In Stratford, and, unhappily, fast crumbling
to decay. In the east wall, near the north -nd,
there is a door. In th- celling th-re ara thirty
seven lines of limber. At tbe a lUth end a blt of
the original timber, ornnmented with gay color,
still faintly \isibl-, has been left imf inched.
Presentations of Miracle Plays and Mysteries
were effected In that hall, In the time of Shake?
speare's boyhood, and lt may well be true, as i .
believed, thnt the firs: dramatic performances
the lad ever saw were seen by bim In thal
\ room. As I sar th-re <>n a sombre Bunday morn
|f lng, alone and listening to tbe rain upon the r,...f,
the chap.-i bell suddenly begun t,, ring, and I
remembered th- tradition that this same 1,-11,
which brid sounded In his ears when h'T wua a
BChOOlboy, was tailed at his funeral
The schoolroom ls over the Guild Hull, nnd an
oak partition, obviously of g'eat ag-, divides lt
in two parts. The main timbers of the roof,
which are massive and rugged, crosa tbe room
nt an altltud- .,f about twelve feet, and above
them ls h network of rafters. Th- staircase lead?
ing to the schoolroom is <,f oak. and v. ry rid),
and there are fine <,ak doors on tbs east aide,
ond Inttlcea on tbe weet on the south well
hangs a portrait of Henry Irvin-' as Hamlet,?
* that great a.-tor being honored there, aa Indeed
he ls everywhere els- In Bhakeepeare'a town,
Eastward ?,f the southern brunch of the school*
room, and opening from lt, is a quaint r,?,m
called the (''.'incl! Chamber, nov used as a li?
brary Th- roof rls-s to a peak, and ls wrought
of old Umbers, all bar- and Vi ry massive Mid
strange. An ancient oak table, much cut and
backed by the jackknives ,,f many generations of
boys, stands !n the centre- t.f thar r,?,m, together
with some oak benches, while around the walls
are bookcases, containing about one Thousand
volumes, and at the north side ls g ifals sustain?
ing a great chair and a reeding-deSk, above
which hanrs a Copy Of Ihe .'hand's portrait of
Shakespeare. (The original <,f the Chandos
?portrait is at ihe Bethnal Oreen Museum, In
London, where the gmo lt nan pilgrim should
make sure of suing lt, together with other price

building is timber crossed, with Interstices of

In the rear stands rhe little cottuoje In which
dwelt Shakesp.-ar-'s schoolmaster, Walter Roche.
At one timi* lt was thought thal this building
must be sacrificed, but lt has been very deftly
"restored," upon new foundations, and lt will
doubtless be seen by a distant posterity. It ls
one of the oldest houses in Stratford. Human

work of restoration was In progress, near to that
building,?the remains, doubtless, of some ec.

Some |?"tallar excitement was caused In Strat- '
ford by the discovery thal tbe oak doors of the I
ii nih por-h ?.f Trinity Church had n t only been
removed from their place chis was done some
time ago), bul had been Sold as rubbish; and f,,r
g tltne this matter was a them- of gent ral and
often a,'rim,,ni,,us complaint The d".,.*. had long \
t.i disused, bul th-re they had hung f.r cen tu- j
rli s, and lhere they were, -useless bul venerable, - I
end nobody -xcept the Vicar of Stratford Wished
them to be disturbed. Him, however, they of?
f-ruled, as many other antiquities of the church
had done, anti by his order they wen removed. '
The porch ls provided with nn Iron gate or grin,
and the removal <*f th.- doora, which bad for
years stood >'i*eii. served at lenst to reveal more
clearly the proportl ns snd peculiarities of Its In- '
terior. There was no complaint, and the doors ;
might long hav- reposed, unnoted, among the
rubbish 'ri ihe woodshed, but for ib-ir sudden
appearance as a commodity of sal-. That ap?
pearance seems t,. hav- been precipitated, not hy
the Vicar, bul by one .,f the church-wardens, a
person new In office and sealous for neatness and
dispatch. There was a quantity of refuse wood
and atone t,i be sold; the whole would bring a few
shillings; the sncient doora, ponderous and clum?
sy, st onl In the way; and SO, with a word, they
were dispatched. Such things, d tubtless, are
done more in heedlessness than with purpose.
Ti,- airiest and most frugal-minded <-f church?
wardens In Stratford, considering what the town
ls and up ,Ti what mainly it thrives, would scarce?
ly have aold those church doora, bad he paused
to reflect ll ' possibly the im/.- of Shakespeare
may hav. rested on them, and thal therefore ihey
belong to the story >.f the greet esl poet and bene?

adjective of ihe Liberal party sro Mr. John

THK DUEL AS A WALL lil'II.I'KH I'RIVKR Ol'

TttEOLOOICAt, STITDSKTS IN' THK AMIT.
Parts. July 12.
Duelling bids fair to gu Ott! of fashion here;
not because the people have become alli- to the
ridicule excited by th- c.niparatlv.-ly InnOCU ms
termination of th- majority of conflicts of this
kind in Prance, bul merely because lt is dally
becoming more difficult t.. And any place where
mle's differences may be settled without Interrup?
tion. Thus, last .Sunday, th. VU" imte de Rr-t-till,
whose -bier brother, the Marquis, ls merried to
Miris Garner, of New-Tork, spent rh- major por?
tion of the day In driving all round Parts with
ills adversary, M. d'Ancona, their f,,ur seconds
nnd the surgeon In search of s secluded nook
where thr*y could exchange some sword-play.
They began I.y visiting that happy hunting
ground >,f duellists, th- He de la Grande Jatte.
Hilt they foi.nd that the police had heard of
their Irit-ntlons and were on the spot to prevent
them from lighting. From tb ire they went to
Passy and thence to Pt. Ormnln; bur everywhere
they dr.ii- Ibey were confront.-.! by th- police.
Finally, they reached a place call..'. Ii,"7,,,ns. and
Tiad Just drawn their swords and begun to
fight when eome on- shouted "There's the
Mayor!" That august functionary was
merely taking bis Sunday post-prandial
stroll. Notwithstanding that he hud left
bis tricolor sash nt home he rush-l between the
rombatanta and ordered them In th- name of the
law to stop. This they did ell the more readily
ns th* Vlcomte had at thnt moment lils arm
pierced by ihe rapier of his adversary. I suppose
lt ls only in Prance that on- could wltneea . u-h
n spectacle as this, two gentlemen In their shirt?
sleeves fencing with rapiers on a high-road, stir
rounded by a 1,-rrge crowd of spectators composed
partly of the Inhabitants of rh- locality and
parry of excursionists, m-n, women and children,
from Paris, out f"r a Bundey afternoon's holiday.
After taking their nam >s rh- Mayor permitted
th- duellists to g... and they returned to Parla
f. pnrtak- ,.f thnt festive repeat which marks
?elusion of nearly every Fr-n-h duel.
Mt ntlon "f this duel recalls the fact that y ung
yt. Eugene S hnelder, the son and heir "f the
? Ironmaster of Creusot, who bas Just become
engaged to the daughter "f the late Marquis de
Sa'tit Sauveur, ls a nephew <,f that M. Asselin

duct on that ocensbm was condemned alike by the
tribunals ard public opinion ss brutal In ths
extreme, waa punish-,1 by a sentence .-f four
months' Imprisonment nnd by being forced ro
un |40,000 dsmeges to ihe wilow ,,f his victim.
This sentence has done more to diminish the
t.psr.. for duelling Hum perhaps anything el...,
sine" a man has |?f,,re him th- certainty ,,f being
