HIiakpcare's Early Jinn-led Life.
Tho Hnthawaya liail lived fn Hhottory

whilo his brido was nearly twenty-six,
and it is often aaid now that she did
very wrong to wod this boy-lover. Thoy
woro married In November. 1582. and
their first child, Snsannn, camo in the
following May. Anno Hathaway must
havo been a wonderfully fascinating
woman, or ttnakspearo would not so
havo loved her: and sho must have
loved him dearly an what woman, in
deed, could beln it? or sho wonld not
thus havo yielded to his passion. Tbero
is utrcct testimony to the beamy of ins
person; and, in tho light afforded by
his writings it requires no extraordinary
penetration to conjecturo that his bril
liant mind, sparkling humor, tender
fanoy, and impetuous spirit must have
made him in bis youth tho very para

for Anne's refuge, when prcsently,in
1530, Shakspearo was obliged to leave
bis wifo and children, and go away to
London to seek his fortune. Ho did
not buy Now Placo till 1597, but it is
knowu that in tho meantime ho came
to his native country onco every year.
It was in Stratford that his son Hamnet
died, in 159C. Anno and her children
probably had never left tho town. They
show her bedstead and other bits of fur
niture, together with certain homespun
sheets of everlasting linen, that aro kept
as heirlooms to this day, in the -arret
of the Hhottery eoltage. Here is tbo
room that must ofteu have welcomed
the poet when he camo homo from his
labors in the great city. It is a very
homely and humble place, but tho sight
of it makes tho heart thrill with a strange
and incommunicable awe. You cannot

it was the emperor, adding, "liecnooeee

" If he is tho father of his people,"

tho emperor is comparatively a poor

that of many wealthy Brazilian gentle

sacriuco on ma part.
Dom Pedro cares nothing for luxury,
