SPEAKING on "The Preacher" at the Pres
byterian General Assembly hel i at Colum
bu Ohio, last May, the Rev. B. I. Agnew de
clared that he was "Idolized at thirty, criti
cized at forty, ostracized at fifty. Oslerized at
sixty, and canonized at seventy." This pithy
sketch of a mini>ter"s career wa.- greeted with
hearty approval, and since its original pre
sentation it ha l>een welcomed as a worthy
addition to the anthology of American epi
A good epigram, indeed, has never to tor^e
or beg its way into popularity. With "r with
out sting.^rand sharp satire is a prime requi
site for success, — the ears of the world areeager
to iveit. and its repetition by ready t. ingues,
be it grateful or spiteful, assures it prompt
and ting prosperity, besides conferring un
dying fame upon its progenitor.
The Duke of Rochester, the reckless boon
companion of Charles 11., witty and talented
though he was is now chiefly remembered by
his bold and savage epigram on hU royal
'" IKre lie> ->ur sovereign lord the King.
Whose word no one relies on.
Who never said a foolish thing.
And never did a wise one."
Legitimate epigrams says the anonymous
compiler of "The British Martial." should pos
sess the qualities <>i brevity, beauty, and p..int
With regard to brevity, they are not limited
to any determinate number of line<. though
the shorter they are the better. The beauty
consists in the harmony and apt agreement of
all the parts, and in the simplicity and purity
of the language; and, thii the {*>int is a
thing that must be felt, and should lie in a
sharp, lively, and unexpected turn of wit.
Several noted ...... have used
their skill in describing the epigram itself.
The most striking of their examples are the<e:
"The diamond's virtues well might «race
The epigram, and both excel
In brilliancy in smallest space. _
And power to cut as well."
" The qualities rare in a l>ee that we meet
In an epigram never should fail:
The body should always l>e little and *weet.
And a sting should be left in its tail."
" Take a portion of wit.
And fashion it tit.
Like a needle with point and i cth eye, —
A point that can wound.
An eye to look round. —
And at folly or vice let ■■ fly."
No Respecter of Persons
J7PIGRAMS are not confined to any particular
subject or any special walk of life. They
refer a- freely to ... and tailor? and candle
makers, as to philosophers, p«>ets. and meta
physicians; and • ey trip as easily from the lijvs
of costermongers .is from the learned pens of
Statesmen, courtiers, and pulpiteers. The stage
has been prolific of them, and the 1-ench and
bar fairly revel at times in biting quips and
quiddities. <>f late years the newspaper hunv >r
ists have caught the trick, and are working the
vein lor all it will stand both in verse" and
prose. Thanks to their unceasing industry, the
pages of the press sparkle daily with praise or
satire uf manners, customs, and person., of high
and low degree.
"What is the summer resort like?" ask>
one girl of another. "Like a hamlet with
Romeo left out," is the pregnant reply.
Looking at the parlor clock, the tiresome
visitor remarks, "Why. it'^ much ;u-t the
time 1 intended to stay."
"Indeed?" comes the swift re>pon>e. " I
thought it was much later."
These retorts have the true epigrammatic
ring. They are tiny and sweet like the bee,
and also have a >ting in the tail.
Poets of every nationality have had a lik
ing for the epigram It has often formed a
vent for feelings which more stately effusions
fail to express. Byron revenged himself on
his early reviewers with great satirical vigor;
■;>«■ lashed his enemies fiercely with his
cau>tic wit ; and the rollicking humor of Burns
took on keener point in this style of compo
Longfellow resorted to it with great effect
on one notable occasion. He stopped at a
hotel in Zurich called the Raver., where the
service and cuisine were abominable and the
charges unusually >rbitani On settling
his bill, he wrote in the register:
" Beware of the Raven of Zurich;
It. a '.;r.i of omen ill.
\\ h an ugly, unclean nest.
And a very, very k>i b:'.';."
Burn had a fling at an inn in Inverarv,
where he had been uncivilly treated owing
to the presence of certain fashionable visitors
to the l)uke of Argyll:
'"Whoi-'r he be that sojourns here.
1 pity much his case.
Unless he come to wait upon
The lord their god. His ftrace.
There 1 ■ nothing here but Highland pride
And Highland c.iuld and hunger.
II Providence has sent me here.
'Twas surely in His anger."
Woman the Target
\^<»MA\ has always been .i favorite target
of the epigrammatist! of all countries.
She has not been spared even by the wits of
America, where she is -iuppo^ed to reign supreme
as muid. wife, and widow. Her oi tir.acy and
pertinacity are contraste-i with her softer
tenderer qualities, so as to make Foofe laugh
i' the aleh'iu.-^e, as Desdemonj. ttdd i-i-^j when
he gave a "lame and impotent cori lusiju" to
his fine description of a wise and virtuous
woman. Fitz-tVreen Halleck wrote:
" All honor to woman the sweetheart, the wife.
The delight of our homestead-; by night and
i>y day.
The darling whj never does harir: in her life.
Except when determined to have her own
way. "'
An English cynic treats this - -■ tiaaeat in
a much har.-her key:
" Show me the man that ha^ the w ■:. iroui skill
To stern the current oi a woman's will;
For when -he will, she will, you miy .t-pend
And when she win't, she won't, and there's
an eni •■n't."
The strong minded woman's attitu Ie toward
marriage is attacked by John G, Saxe:
""Whenever I marry." says masculine Nan,
'I must really insist upon marrying a man!'
But what if the man (for men are ; ■•:: human)
Should also insist upon wedding „. woman."
Unrequited love was undoubtedly the ca'ase
of Gortlon Campbell's oft quoted epigram:
"My idol tell down and was utterly - iken.
The fragments oi stone lay al! scattered .loart;
And I ptcke i '-::> the hardest to keep as a t >ken— ■
Her heart!"
The Scot Who Talked Back
COMETIMES the epigrammatist assails a
*^ whole tribe or a nation. Notwithstanding
their manifold virtues, the Scots ar :.-e re
sentfu] feelings in sume quarters. ieir ia
born cautiousness, thrift, and forehaa ledness
seem to grate upon the nerves oi less practical
persons. The great Dr. Johns.- was very ia
censed ag:nnst them, and lost no opportunity
for emphasizing his dislike. In his :.:t.ous
dictionary he defined oatmeal as ': : for
horses in England and for men in >, tLnd."
But a witty Scotsman (and there arc -.v-.ts i
the "'land o' cakes." despite divers r:r.iocs
to the contrary) turned the tables on puffing.
