“ At Winchester
Ye heard how, in the west end of the church,
The night that Dunstan fled, the Devil skipped,
And with great laughter, in his roaring fashion,

Took up his ! O be joyful ! “ The Divell was heard in the west end of the Church, taking up a great laughter after his roaring manner, as though he should show himself glad and joyful at Dunstan's going into exile.”Holinshed, Chap. 23.

The picture of the past presents itself
Minute yet vivid, such as it is seen
In his last moments by a drowning man.

There are few psychological phenomena more interesting or more worthy of scientific investigation than the one here alluded to,--the presentation to a man in a drowning state,-and not as far as I am aware to a man dying in any other way,—of innumerable acts and occurrences in a succession so rapid, that his whole life appears to be reflected in his last moments. There have been several examples of this in our own times, according to the relations of men who have been resuscitated out of a drowning state; and one of them is of such unquestionable authenticity and value that some claim may perhaps be advanced in the interest of Science to have it duly recorded.

He bids you know that in this land this day He finds more fat than bones, more monks than soldiers."

I have taken the words of Fuller : “Indeed one may safely affirm that the multitude of monasteries invited the invasion and facilitated the conquest of the Danes over England ..... because England had at this time more flesh or fat than bones, wherein the strength of a body consists ; more monks than military men.”— Church History, Book II., S. 51.

But now I wax old,
Sick, sorry, and cold,
Like muck upon mould

I widder away.

I have taken the liberty to borrow this from the “ Processus Noe,” one of the Towneley Mysteries, printed by the Surtees Society. In another place I have taken a mode of expression from the following lines in the “ Mactatio Abel :” “Felowes, here I

you

forbede
To make nother nose nor cry:
Whoso' is so hardy to do that dede,

The Devylle hang hym up to dry."
