BUT GENIUS BORROWS NOBLY
The Crude Ore Is Refined and the Raw
Material Fashioned into a Thing of
Beauty-Shakespeare as a Most Bril
Our great writers are not great rob
bers. Literature is not a repository of
stolen goods. What seem like steal
lngs by the steel pen are rather the
output of the lapidar-y or a reissue of
the mint or, better still, the borrow
ings from a bank repaid with interest.
"It is wonderful," says Charles
Reade, "how genius can borrow." "All
literature," remarks Oliver Wendell
Holmes, "lives by borrowing and lend
ing," and, he adds, '"A good image is
like a diamond, which may be set a
hundred times in as many generations
and gain new beauties with erm-:y
change." This Is not a question of
origInality. '"The lightIng a canudle
at a neighbor's fire," observes Dean
Swift, "does not affect our property in
the wick and flame." "Genius bor
rows nobly." The transference is
often a transmutation. For brass, the
borr-ower brings gold, and for iron,
silver, and for wood, brass, and for
stones, iron. The eide ore is refined
and the raw material fashioned into
a thing of beauty.
It has been pointed out by Mr. Huth
in his "Life of Buckle" that there is a
kind of pedigree in literature. Dante
avows his indebtedness to Virgil, as
the latter himself was under obliga
tions to Homer.
Ariosto owes much to Virgil, and
Spenser borrows frequently from
Ariosto. Spenser's "Faerle Queene"
.gave birth to Fletcher's "Purple Is
land," and this to Bernard's "Isle of
Man," and this in turn to Defoe's
"Robinson Crusoe" and Bunyan's
"Pilgrim's Progress"-all like so nmany
blossoms rising from the one stem..
Shakespeare has been called -"the
great Warwickshire thief," so inveter
ate is his borrowing habit He invaded
literature like a Napoleon and brought
back the rarest art treasures to enrich
and beautify his verse. One Is sur
prised to learn that our dramatist has
no original plots, that he has given to
poetry, no new rhythm or stanza and
that "he ran not only In the old road,
but in the old ruts." His "As You
Like It" is taken from an old romance.
The characters of his "Julius Caesar"
are old Romans taken from Plutarch.
But what borrowing! Dry bones are
turned into living men. The common
est materials are taken into the lam
bent flame of his genius and transmut
ed into airy beauty.
Milton, too, is a free borrower. It is
this fact,.indeed, that makes his verse
so rich in learned reminiscence and so
gorgeous with "barbaric pearl and
gold." He owes much to Shakespeare.
Some critics think Milton's Eve is bor
rowed from Shakespeare's Miranda. In
the "Taming of the Shrew" occurs the
As morning roses newly washed in dew.
While Milton in "T'Allegro" speaks
Fresh blown roses washed in dew.
Milton is a very mIne to many. Pope
is his debtor. Milton's '"Smoky Sor
ceress"-a woman to the waist and
fair, but "ending foul in many a scaly
fold voluminous and vast"-is made to
say, "They call me sin and for a sign
portentous hold me; but, familiar
grown, I pleased and with attractive
graces won the most averse." Pope
Vice is a monster of so frightful mien
As to be hated needs but to be seen;
But seen too oft, familiar with her face,
We first endure, then pity, then embrace.

People who really know nothing
about it nsed to say that elephants
never lie down to sleep. This is not
true at all, says one writer. They have
been known to stand for twelve
months without lying down to sleep.
This is regarded as want of confidence
in their keepers and of longing to re
gain their liberty, for when they are
perfectly at ease and reconciled to
their fate they will lie down on their
sides and sleep peacefully.

old Scottish woman who was "unco'

"a drapple." "Lassie," she said to
her little granddaughter, "gang round

her eye fell upon the family Bible.
"Here, lassie," she said, "gte him this
