BACON AND SHAKESPEARE.

ArlstotK' ras an extraordinary man.
Plato was an extraordinary man. That
two men ench severally so extraordinary
should bave been living at the
same time In tbe same place was a
very extraordinary tblng. But would
It diminish the wonder to Buppose tbe
two to be one? So I say of Dacon end
Shakespeare. That a human being possessed
of the faculties necessary to
make a Shakespeare should exist la
extraordinary. That a human being
possessed of the necessary faculties to
make Bncou should exist Is extraordinary.
That two such human beings
should havo been living In London nt
the same time was more extraordinary
still. But that one man ahould have
existed possessing tho faculties and
opportunities necessary to make both
would have been the most extraordinary
thing of all.
Great writers, especially being contemporary,
have many features In common,
but If they are really great writers
they write naturally, and nature l
always Individual. I doubt whether
there are Ave lines together to bo found
In Bacon which could be mistaken for
Bhakespenro or live lines In Shakespeare
which could be mistaken for
Bacon by one who was familiar with
their Beveral styles and practiced In
such observations. Junies Speddlng's
Every humnn being carries with him

autograph, so to speak, and this
autograph cannot bo counterfeited, nor
can he disguise It or hide It away, nor
can it become Illegible by the wear and
the mutations of time.
This autograph consists of the delicate
