which bis, if limited, still well-selected

which I was henceforth to be lord and
master, with full liberty to invite to me
there and at all times such friends as I
pleased. I can never be too gratefil tor
this thoughtful kindness. Perhaps my
tendency to very varied if not omniverous
reading may be attributed to the fact that
my Cither, who wu a diligent reader af the

"Dr. Bchueharr, at a recent banquet
in his honor, at Berlin, said that the read
ing of Homer first fired him for the task of
Trojan exploration. "My acquaintance
with him," he added, "dates from my ear
liest childhood. - Although my father, who
was a preacher at a village only a few miles
from here, knew no Oreek, he read with
enthusiasm the excellent translation which
Voss bas given us. Scarcely an evening
passed iu our home without my father's
reading aloud from the Iliad or the Odys
sey, and he frequently broke down in tears,
in which I joined him over some of the
more moving passages. Thus was fostered
in me an unspeakable enthusiasm for the
divine poet, and I gave my father a child's
promise to discover, when I became a man,
tho rains of the famous city. As fate would
have it, I was forced for a long time to be
a tradesman, but the whirl of business
never effaced from my mind my early
promise, or weakened my determination to
fulfill it. Not until 185C, when I was thir
ty-four years of age, did I begin to learn
Greek, and it was twelve years later when
I first tound tnysolf, with my Homer in my

It cannot be disputed that a 'tew liter
ary era is dawning upon the South. It is
quite legitimate in this connection to ask
why this marked change in the character
of Southern literary work bas ta'-eo place.
There has nevor been t lack of brightness
in the Southorn mind. All the tendencies
of climate have been toward the produc
tion of a passionate and imaginative people.
Something very fine and remarkable should
be the rosult of such admixtures of blood
as have been witnessed in the South, in
such a climate as the 8outh possesses. It
muBt be remembered, however, that lasting
literature can only be produced under con
dition of broad sympathy and catholic
culture. Up to the date of the civil war the
South possessed an excessively provincial
spirit. It assumed a social preeminence
that waa almost Chinese in its excluswe
ness. It cherished a local institution that
degraded labor and threw it out of sym
