The ? ? cue was k.pt secret, her husband was permitted to hold the funeral e. .... mony with which he expected to blind th-- public eye, th" coffin being weight ed with a baulk of wood, and the fol? lowing year he was nlaln in Edinburgh by the lady's brother. Sir lohn Camp toll. .She thereupon married a kins? man. Donald Campbell of Auehlnbrock, with whom si..- lived happily for many 3*ears after. The founder of th..

The Maclean of Duart wns prominent in tile movement un? successfully promoted by Henry VIII. to marry his only sou, afterwards Kd W-ard VI.. to Mary Queen of Scots. In the yr.m civil War th- Macleans took arms for the royal caUUo under Mont rose and the then chief. Lachlan. was made a baronet by the King. At the battle of Inverkelthlhg sir Lachlan's son and successor, Sir Hector Maclean, was slain, but not before many of his clansmen had fallen, who sought to ward him with their bodies, shouting as ? <eh defender dropped. "Fear .lie i..n E'achln." '?Another for Hector," when another man would step forward, crying. "Ban air son Kachln.' "Death for Hector.' It is this instance of the heroic devo? tion of clansmen for their chief, that Sir Walt, r Sett makes use of in "The Pair Maid of Perth." when he describes i t . combat between the champions of the rival clans Chattan and Quhole, in the present. of the King?a combat that took place, however, several cell- \ Ulrica earlier.
