VERMONT WATCHMAN &' STATE JOURNAL. WEDNESDAY JULY 26 1899.
3 WEDNESDAY, JOLY2G, 1899. ARTHUH HOPEB. Oonoral Edltor. Hobcrt lltirns. Ono hundred and forty yeara ngo, ou the 25th day of January last, was born ia a clay-built cottago, ncar Ayr, Scot land, n poasant boy whoso famo has on circlcd tho oarth, growing brhjhter wlth tho passtng yoars, nnd iu whoso honor momorial flgures havo boon orectod in many lands boyond "Old Scotin's" shorcs. To-day, in tho city of Barre, in a far away land, aovon Bcoro yoars af tor tho timo of hia birth, up nmonR tho Groon Hllls of Vermont, tho Scotland of Aniorica, his country mon of tho Burns Club furthor porpotu ato his famo and add to his honor. Tho poasant chlld becamo tho natlon albardof Scotland. Whilo ho fol lowod tho plough and tilled tbo land his genius doveloped Ub nativo onor gies in thoso strainB which havo mado his namo 'familior to all futuro tlraos, the admiratlon of ovory civilized coun try, and tho glory and boast of his own." Ho was the poet of the people. His genius was a harp of a thousand stringB, nnd each string vibrated re sponBive to a soul that felt ovory pas Bion or omotion that stirs tho human heart. In no convontional sense, he has boon tho peoplo's poet for a cen tury and a quarter, and will continuo to bo for ccnturioa to como. Scotchmon long ago loat tho monopoly of his name. Ho has acquired citizonship in tho affections of evory pcoplo under tho sun. Tho BurnB Club, in honoring the poot, is simply an exponent of tho feolings, an agont by tho right of blood kinship, of tho peoplo both of this im mediato locality and tho whole Stato of Vermont. Scotch hands have chis elled tho statue and Scotch contribu tions havo provided tho money, but Burns ia preaented to thia peoplo in Barre granite, and the union of popular interest in tho poet ia thua substan tially exomplifled. Threo years Bgo on July 21, the world waa obaerving tho centenary of the bard's death. Atthe age of thirty aoven yoar3 his atar wbb quenched, but ita light, "Btlll streamlnc downward from the sky Sblnea on oar mortal sigbt." In the spaco of Bome ten years the foundation waa laid, more enduriug than Barre granite, of his abiding fame. Millions have laughed over his aatirea upon those who hud incurred tho poot's reaentment, sometimea "as much dis tinguished for thoir coarso aeverity aud bitternesa as for thoir geniua"; beon merry over the advcntures of Tam O'Shanter, led to the serene hoights of homely virtuo and pioty by "The Cotter'B Saturday Night," marvelod at the pootic resources in a "Wee, sleekit, cow'rin' tim'rous beastie" of a mouse, felt his manhood ennobled by "A Man'a a Man for a' That," thrillcd with pat riotic impulae by "Scots wha hao wi' Wallace bled." An exquisito patho8 and humor, a atrong manly aonao, a masterly command of folicitoua lan guage, a graphic powor of dclineating acenery, manners and incidents, arc conspicuoua in hiB various pooma. Whence camo theae qualilios to the ruatic poet, to the humblo holder of an exciso commiBBion at soventy pounda a year? What brought to him tho inter eat that at tho timo of hia death drew ten thousand peoplo of all ranks to hia grave? What was tho aource of a per ennial fame achieved before tho mcn tal powers of man have ordinarily reached thoir niaturity? Thoy were not tho product of education, rank or wealth. Tho poet was born, not made, born with an abundance of mortal frail ties, endowed with heavenly genius. Tho groaaer parts havo paased away, what wbb divine eurvives.

Ito mlght bo any ono of tho army of peoplo connectod with Congreaa, from tho proaident of tbe Sonate and spoaker of tbe Houso down through all tho ranka to the swcepors and scrubbors. Or did tho Ilerald, in writing "Carroll S. Pago for congreBaman," moan "for Repreaontatlve?" If bo, why did not tho contemporary uao that word? It is clear, cxact, "clcan." He gavo the newapapor world rccently a dlsquisitlon on "Slovonly Writing." His own cer obral garrot 1b Bomotlmoa duaty, un swept and in confusion.
