Country life was marked with the rigidity of a hard provincialism. All this, however, is rapidly changing. A city hammers and polishes its denizens into a defined model: it worships standardisation; but the country encourages differentiation, it loves new types. Thus it is that so many great and original men have lived their youth upon the land.

"You find us at length, Mr. Vendale. Perhaps you may lose us again." "I trust not. The curious coincidence that has enabled me to find you, encourages me to hope not." "What is that coincidence, sir, if you please?"

She is shut out from any action against the one person who injured her; but as a sort of compensation she is allowed to become a radiating focus of disease, to shorten many lives, to cause many deaths, to pile up incalculable damages; and in so doing she is to-day perfectly within her legal rights. A community which encourages this state of things is not only immoral but stupid.

Choiseul remonstrates with them, urges, encourages; writes the 'admirablest Despatches; to no purpose.
