"Macaulay," sid a talker whose con
versation ranged over three generations,
"did not talk, he lectured. He chose his
subject, it mattered little what, and be
delivered a discourse on it; poured out
masses of efacts, or arguments, of his
torial llustration. He was not witty,
he had no humor, he was not a critic, as
he hlmsalf confessed, he was devoid of
Imaginative or poetio faculty. Bathe
had the mast prodigious memory ever
posemed by a human being, and on this
he drew, without stint and without end."
People in those days listened to him, his
authority was established, his audience
docile, nobody interrupted, controversy
was out of the question. "Now," con.
tinued the witnes., "no dinner table
would stand it; he would be topped,
contradicted, his long stories vetoed; no
monopoly or monopolist is tolerated. If

of rpe-here a piece of cabin gilding
there a bit of stout planking. The sea
never rests. It brings inand it carries
out. The beach one day is shelving. The
next run of the tide cuts it full of runs
