Appearance la Not AH.
A gentle spirit may express itself In
rude words of Illiteracy; it Is not
therefore rude. Ruffianism may speak
the language of learning or religion;
it is ruffianism still. Strength may
wear the garb of weakness, and still
be strong; and a weakling may carry
the weapons of strength, but fight with
faint heart. Harold Bell Wright
Scotch Bard's Remarkable Eyes.
The moBt striking feature of Hums
was his large dark eye. It was. we
are tcld by one writer, "full of mind
and literally glowed when he spoke
with emotion or interest." Sir Wal
ter Scott, who knew the poet when
ne lived in Edinburgh, says: "I never
saw such another eye in a humiin
head, and I have seen the most dis
tinguished men of my time."
