15LES OF SCILL OLD
Group That Are Situated South
west of England.
Period at Which Islands Were Sep. or, S

london-People sometimes apply of m
the term Lyonesse to the whole of land
Cornwall, which is a mistake. If there its,
ever was such a land at all it lay west- dese
ward of Cornwall, and the Scilly Isles the
are its relics. The name of Arthur was
plays like a lambent light about the dere
district; but the period at which the be's
Scillies were sepaarted from the the
mainland must be far beyond the dem
reach of history, which in England can for
only explore about two thousand years
backward. The Lyonesse of romance
extended to the southwest of Land's
End, and was connected in race and
legend with the Leon of Brittany. As
a matter of geology the tradition has
no satisfactory basis, though there
are traces of submerged forests in
Mount's Bay, and the old Cornish
name of St. Michael's Mount repre
sents that rock as having once stood
in the center of woodland. In reality
the islands are the last upheavals of
that backbone of granite which is so
impressive on Dartmoor and which
again comes into notice on the Bod
min Moors. True, ecean depths do not
begin till far beyond the islands, so
that in its relation to the great sub
marine platform Scilly may be con- tim
aidered structurally attached to Brit- ing
ain, as Britain is to the Continent. fen
Some portion of the vanished region ful
may have survived, adjoining the the
coasts of Mount's Bay, till the year Th
1099, when, aecording to the Saxon der
chroncle, Lyonesse was destroyed in and
a great tempest. its
When we come to the genuine his- He
tory of Scilly there are some interest- of
Ing things to notice. The islands seem ha
to have been used as a penal settle- di
ment in Roman times; and in the sixth lot
century they gave a home to the on
Welch St. Samson, who became bish- T
op of Dol, and who has left footprints
in Guernsey as well as in Devon and
Cornwall. The Isle of Samson is now
uninhabited, but it may have had a
fairly large population when the saint Th
established an oratory here; there E,
are many traces of early occupation. N<
To many it is still more interesting as Tr
the home of Walter Besant's Armorel. Mi
Early in the tenth century Athelstan
made a conquering expedition through
Cornwall, and is said to have spied "s
these isles from the high land at St. "I

he returned safely from their con
quest. Probably he met with little re
dstmtance on the islands, where he is
supposed to have founded Tresco Ab- 1
bey. Later, in the same century, a
Scillonian had the credit of convert
ing the fierce King Olaf of Norway.
After harrying the coast of Britain
and Ireland Olaf sighted the Scillies
and ran his vessel into what is now
the harbor of St. Mary's. A hermit
here gave him timely warning of a
mutiny that was about to take place
among his own troops; he crushed the
revolt, but was severely wounded.

Poets - from
London.-All artists and lovers of gives
paintings will be interested to know
that Wick House, on Richmond hill,
once the residence of the great paint
er, Sir Joshua Reynolds, is, like many
other noble mansions in the neighbor
hood, in the market. it is situated on
that wonderful terrace at Richmond.
whence one of the most perfect views
of marvelous scenery in southern Eng
land can be obtained. Pbets and novel
ists, as well as artists, have tried to
describe its perfections. No wonder
the beauty-loving eye of Sir Joshua
was attracted by the scene. He or
dered the architect, Sir William Cham
bers, to build for him this house on
the site of an old cottage, which was
demolished in order to make room
for the artist's dwelling place. It has
been much enlarged since Sir Joshua's .

Sing room he painted one of his very

lordly Windsor, and on the left the o

Thompson described this scene in t

Another great writer has told us
about them. Sir Walter Scott in the >x

need not retell the grand description
painted by the great writer; but when
the duke tells Jeanie that there is
nothing like in Scotland, Jeanie re
