In 1790. during the last year of his btay battle with Irish Jacobins in the pit of the
at Cambridge, Wordsworth made a tour Edinburgh Theater, where he was cur
. rently reported to have cracked three
on foot through France and Switzerland.
He found "a whole nation mad with Joy
ln consequence of the revolution," and
with this passion every fiber of his being
eympathlzed. To the child of the north
ern hills liberty was as the very breath
he drew, and from the beginning joy
-was to Wordsworth a necessary element
of life. During his second visit to Franco
he formed a close friendship with Michael
Beaupuy, the noblest type of the repub
l'can soldier, and learned at flrrt hand
the causes of the revolution and the
sources of its ctrength. During his stay In
Paris ln the Autumn of 1792 he even med
itated throwing himself into the strife of
factions in the wild hope that his voice
might recall the nat'on from the path of
blood. Recalled to England by the stop
page of supplies, his return was soon fol
lowed by the news of the execution of the
King and the tragic fall of his own friends,
the Girondists. Wordsworth has left a
lasting record in the "Prelude" of the
effect the Terror made upon his mind.
For long yean? aft?rward hia sleep was
haunted with visions of despair and Im
plements of death, or he saw himself

Wordsworth lost hope In the movement
-with which he had so passionately sym

process. The peaceful scenery of the Eng
lish countrv. the gentle ministrations of
his sister Dorothy, th stimulating Influ
ence of Coleridge and mopt of all bis
own abld'ng sympathy with the Joys and
sorrows of the country folk among whom
his life was fpent, at last restored him to
the state of hope and joy which he once
seemed to have lost forever. We find the
first evidence of his complete recovery in
the glorious "Linrn Composed Near Tin
tern Abbey." At last, when the military
despotism of France was incarnated in
Narr",-on and England entered upon her
epic struggle against thlo tremendouo
power, Wordsworth was reconciled to hi
country. He felt that th parts had been
exchanged and that England now stood as
the champ'on of liberty. And with this
feeling he poured out a merles of sonnet,
dedicated to liberty which remain today

for freedom rather in the liberation of
the Individual mind than ln any change
of polit'cr.l institutions.
Of all his critics Arnold has perhaps
best summed up the cause of Word--worth's
greatn'es. It lies In the "extra
ordinary power with which Wordsworth
feels the joy offered to us in Nature, the
Jov offered to us ln the slmnl" primary
affections and duties and in the extraor
dinary powT with wh'ch he phows us
this Joy and renders it so an to make us
share it." In other words, the poet's
greatness consists in his matter and his
manner, or rathr in the peculiar harmony
of matter and manner which at h's hieh
ci he attains. And Wordsworth reached
his highest more than once or twice. He
has Wt. as no other Engl'rti poet since
Milton has done, "a great and ampl
body" of absolutely classic work, as
lmprrlsbnble a pocsrnslon of our langu.ig
as the King Jame Bible, or the plavs of
Shakespeare. He is at once the poet of
Nature and the poet of man. and both In
n sense no poet had been before. To
Wordsworth. Nature Is Informed with
souU with an a!I-pervading spirit whose
voice may be heard and comprehended
by man becauce it ls akin to the divine
within himself. And this vole teaches
him. not resignation to the ills of life,
but Joy in it activities and duties. Na
ture to Wordsworth ls not an anodyne
but a stimulant.
His love of man sorang from and was a
part of hie love of Nature. He had little
or nothing of the dramatic instinct of
Shakespeare, and his sympathies were In
great part limited to the lives of the
common folk about him. But his sym
pathies were all the deeper for their lim
itation, and through them he restored or
rather created a new field for the play
of poetic power, "the simple primary affec
tions and duties." as seen in the lives of
the great mass of mankind. Here, as In
Nature, he finds the divine element of
truth and love, and hence, also, he draws
Joy and strength.
Wordswprth's manner has two charac
teristicssimplicity and subllm'ty. They
are found apart and united. At times,
unfortunately, one ls degraded Into a. flat
jttss of commonplace that iy almost tin-
democratic heads. He was Quartermas
ter in the Edinburgh Light Korse, a vol
unteer regiment enrolled on the threat
of French invasion. His political ideas
were summed up in the old cavalier motto,
"Fear God; honor the King." But, though
not a revolutionist, Scott -was a romantic,
and that to a marked degree. In poetry
he broke entirely wtlh the trad.tlons of
the classical school. His first attempt at
verse was a translation of Burger's "Le
nore," his -second a version of Goethe's
"Goetz von Berllchlngen." Descended from
a family famous ln Scottish history and
tradition, he turned with enthusiasm to
the chronicles and legends of his country.
He swept the border for the swiftly per
ishing songs and ballads of the old moss
trooper days and gave them to the world
In his "Minstrelsy of the Scottish Bor
der." Upon this collection his first orig
inal poem, "The Lay of the Last Min
strel," is founded. It Is ln fact a mere
expansion of the old ballad Into the met
rical romance. The meter ls an imitation
of "Christabel." which Scott had seen In
MS., but not the least of Its charm to the
lover of our old ballads ls the frequent
echo of their direct and simple notes.
"The Lady of the Lake" opened to Eng
lish literature the romantic world of the
Scotch Highlands. "Marmlon." perhaps
the greatest of his poems, enshrines In
verse Scott's own romantic town of Edin
burgh, and sings with Homeric flra and
vigor the fatal field where medieval Scot
land -went down in hopeless and heroic
ruin. Scott, to put it plainly, was him
self the last minstrel, the last English
poet to whom loyalty ln Its old accepted
meaning was more than an idle word.
It is the fashion of late years to pass
lightly over his poems as mere tales in
verse, as though the first great poem of
European literature was not a "tale. '
One may admit at once that Scott's verse
lacks depth and artistic finish, but when
every admission is made, the famf- of Sir
Walter remains undiminished. He ls stlil
the "Wizard of the North." dear to thou
sands upon thousands of young hearts as
the opener of the gates Into an enchanted
world, dearer still to every man who has
left in his composition something'
Of that Btem Joy which warriors feel
In foemen worthy of their steef."
John Keats was even less touched by
the Revolutionary spirit than Walter
Scott. He neither upheld nor attacked it,
he passed it by In quiet indifference. He
was a belnir born out of his due time, n
i belated Elizabethan, the poetic son of Ed-
mund Spenser. A 'worshiper of beauty,
the beauty which appeals to the eye and
ear and touch. He was the most sensu
ous poet of his day. Sensuous, not sensu
al; for. In spite of some early extrava
gances of expression, there is nothing
common nor unclean in Keats. His wor
ship of beauty is seen in his attitude
toward nature. He Is the divinely drunk
en lover of her charms. His heart aches
and his senses grow numb with too much
joy at the song of the nightingale. Na-
ture herself partakes of his passion; the
star throbs in the sapphire heaven's deep
repose like the heart of a lover drawing
near his goal. In the world of man Keats
sought for beauty in the old Hellenic
myths. When some one asked how Keats,
with his lack of learning, could so Inter
pret the legends of Greece, "Because he
ls a Greek," said Shelley. Palgrave has
well pointed out the Greek clement in the
poetry of Keats. It is seen ln his abso
lutely direct and spontaneous expression
of the thought before him. In his freedom
rrom conventionality. In his freshness of
phrase. Such a passage as the picture of
Hebe ln the "Ode to Fancy" Is pure
Greek; so Is the description of Saturn
and Thea with which "Hyperion" opens,
or such a couplet as
"Into the green-recessed -woods they flew.
Nor grew they pale as mortal lovers do."
But there is something more than this
Hellenic element ln Keats. To the old
Greek purity and simplicity he adds a
warmth of color and a richness of phrase
unknown in English poetry since Shakes
peare's day. No doubt it was on this ac
count that he left unfinished the noble
fragment of "Hyperion." The theme was
too remotely classical, the style too se
verely Mlltonlc Keats ls at his best when
dealing with subjects chosen from later
Hellenic legend, such as Lamia, or from
medieval romance. Let us take the fa
mous passage ln -which his delight in rich
color finds its fullest expression:
"Full on the casement shone the Wintry moon.
And threw warm tales on Madeline's soft
As down she knelt for Heaven's grace and
Rose-bloom fell en her hands, together rrest.
And on her silver crosi roft amethyst.
And on her hair a glory like a saint."
There is nothing Greek in these lines.
They are medieval, or rather they exhibit
the medieval joy in color, expressed with
all the power and splendor of the Renais
sance. Richness, luxury, two very un
Greek characteristics, are favorite wordi
with Keats, and his advice to Shelley to
curb his magnanimity and load every rift
of the subject with ore ls another in
stance of the predominance of this qual
ity. But Keats drew from medievalism not
only his love of color, but -that Strang"
and haunting charm which Arnold has
baptized "natural magic." In this qual
ity, Scott, with all his love for the ro
mantic past. Is quite deficient. He loved
the stir and action of the medieval world
Its strong contrasts and clear types. But
Keats penetrated below the surface and
caught the magic and mystery of things.
It la hardly too much to say that there is
more of the true spirit of romance in
"The Eve of St. Agnes" than ln all the
Waverley novels bound together. We feel
this charm not only in Keats' descriptions
of nature almost every line of the "Ode
to the Nightingale" could be quoted as
an examplebut even more Iri his deal
ings -with the supernatural. The ghost in
"Isabella" Is far beyond the reach not
only of Scott, but of any poet of his day,
and the little posthumous ballad of "La
Belle Dame Sans Mercl" ls, to use Arnold's
fine phrase, "drenched and Intoxicated
with the fairy dew of natural magic"
It is this quality more than anything else
that constitutes the peculiar charm of
Keats. It keeps his love of luxury and
richness of color from degenerating into
mere barbaric de.lght In how and glit
ter, and gives to his best work a thrill
and fascination that are perhaps unique
ln English poetry.

OREGON HUMANE SOCIETY.
"What It Has Accomplished for Good
Prccnt Financial Needs.
The Oregon Humane Society having be
come a permanent and Indispensable or
ganization ln our city, we can now look
with pride upon its past history. Fifteen
years ago there were no adequate laws
in Oregon to meet the various acts of cru
elty often witneseed inflicted upon defense
less children and animals. Humane edu
cation was not then regarded as Import
ant to the boys and girls in our public
schools. The law of klndnts had not yet
been unrolled before the minds and hearts
of the young. Our bfrds of plumage and
song were thoughtlessly destroyed, and
their nests robbed of eggs and the brood.
Stray cats and dogs were ill-trealod;
horses were driven with galled shoulders
and backs, underfed and overworked, left
to stand in tho cold and storm without
blankets; In faot, they had no rights
which their cruel owners were bound to
Today, note the change! Through the
untiring efforts of the officers of the Ore
gon Humane Society, laws have been en
acted for the better protection of children
and animals, and special laws have been
passed for the protection of song and in
seotlverous birds, who also seem to realize
the change, for our gardens and lawns are
now the Summer homes of these wel
come messengers, which enjoy their sur
roundings without fear or molestation.
Horses are no longer publicly beaten, but
are better fed, blanketed in stormy weath
er, better shod and always under the pro
tection of the society. Humane educa
tion has been Introduced ln our public
schools, and valuable prizes are annually
awarded the pupils for compositions pn
kindness to animals.
It has been, proven beyond question
that humane education inaugurated by
humane societies has lessened crime in a
remarkable t way, thereby saving a large
tax to the public and creating a sentiment
and love for the brute creation which ex
tends also to mankind.
