Full text of "Household Words: A Weekly Journal"

Google 



This is a digital copy of a book tliat was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public doinain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vaiy country to counti^y. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated quen'ing. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Moke non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-cojnjnercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from aulomated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use. remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe. 

About Google Book Search 

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and to make it universally accessible and useful. Google Book Search helps readers 
discover the world's books while helping authors and publishers reach new audiences. You can search through the full text of this book on the web

11^ H4 took soma p«nd« in hia calling, and 
diit not uoiuidor tiiat lin norktvl for DTMtd 
ocUv. U« was a quiet, thonghlful inui ; fond 
of antii^nArinti )otv. Hu ktMn- Ui« hislorT of 
9very dirtier iif ikal tolenn old eil}'. Walttd

OTiB of the amiijae afaai-ch««, fcir inontlui to- 
fpstbtr; cvUin^ oat vrMths, uid heads of 
ngloU; for «hich purpose an eowntric old 
gCDtlnnut had fanqaeathed aome monej' to 
tho <:hurch«iinl«U. While nt work, my 
falk*T would talk to nie of tfa« <l(^iity erf* our 
art, until t wu deeply conviDccd titat mine 
VM til* aobUct culitig Qpuo cartb. I t9> 
ooUetft, oDoe, arvlDg out what I thought a 
■wccC asmariv« lace ; and coming into the 
ehturh aflcrvranln when iJie sun ww lower, 
and a tone ray of light, purpled with the 
it^Dcd glttM window, IbII npoo it. I ro- 
ucmher, «vin now, my seaaalion at Uut 
moiBsnt. It wna sot vanity, bat ik feeling 
of ddijiht, ouarly of miucntitioua adiuirati<Mi. 
I wna aJnimt a rousK idolator. I oould haw 
kodt down and r e v cr cu cod the work <{ my

Ai I givw older, however, and found iKot 
olhord w*r« far from ^vbip that ioiportuicf

to beli«v« that it waa entitlML I became lew 
SDthnaiaMic for ic I read of men who had 
devoted their Itvca to painting, and noiilpUira ; 
and had £«d and left behind them immortal 
namta. So higli bad ray lallier'a discouraes 
ntsml my amfaltloii, th^ I thought it wna 
ouly for wml of a diflVrmt iphera of action 
that I spent mj dayw In olscnnty. ! indulged

I knew it woold iiava grivvod my fiither

took, aud Lc^-an to cut s1u]XMt in hLodr, witlt- 
ooL a niMtcr or any theory to guide meu At

lint, I oamd vrcatha anil othrr Kiiii|ili; imu- 
m«nta — gnuJoaUjr adrancin^, I atlcuutvil 
huniou &10M. Thi« waa n happy period of my 
lifi). Iu tlui auniuer aftenioou*, wb<.<a we 
w«ro not bo^, I uacvl to work U{>od thcw 
Ibin^ in tbo garden at the Inck of our boii>c. 
It woa a larao oicM of grouad, half gatdvD, 
lull orohara; though it had no large troa. 
It waa, howvvur, fdiud with fruit* and flowere. 
Next to na were the groouda of aome andcnt 
■Inubouees, and tiw wnJl that wparated na 
wat oompoaed of flinU and ^m*>* ot atoou, 
that ommbled at a touch, uo our Ude iMi 
wa> «ovea«d with iwAutiv^ ripvuing in tho 
m«Uow alUraooD bud ; and a^calnat it, ou a 
boanl with trMwli^ stood aereml large be»- 
ULrea, of plaited almw. Silling Iwnj, (|ui«Uy 
alonp, in line weather, was enough to inake a 
man iillc ; but I fullownl my atv employ 
Dient with lucreaaing indiuniy. 

In chia way I can-ed a luunbGr of otjocts, 
alwaya destroying them u noon am I bad done, 
being SBiiafiMl with the improvemeul whkh 
1 1i«3 deiired from the work, and not wishing 
my mdo. first cflbrta to be aeen. Hour by 
hour, ana day by day, I trirove to trace aoiue 
imago thbt 6oid«d in my miod. Tben,lookiD£ 
afWrwardtt upon uiy work, 1 naw Ikiw I haa 
fallen abort of my ideal ; and cometimea I 
gn;w wciury of my task, for nwtulc, till 1 took 
uiy tovla again ; and, hoping for the lims 
when gientcr skill should crown my eSbrtsv 
I renewed my tcil, I bad do models. I 
cbJMlI«d out, Erom msmory, soEOetuues, th« 
£»«<« of great men of by-goBe timers vUott 
portnilsl liad iMn in books or plwt«r eaat& 
When I had finished, I left my work until tho 
next day. Then Istoledown into the gnricn,

however, he certainly heeamL> a far better man 
when he had no oppomitoo to coDteud with, 
and waxas great a king as >IngUnd hwl known 
for some time. 

Hie old wriLera of history re1at« Itow that 
CaBQte was one day disgusted wiUi his eotuv 
liera for their flaltcry, and bow he eaoMd 
Ills chair to be set on the sm-aliun:, imd rcit.t>«d

and rebuked them. sayiiiKi what wns the 
might of any mrtUy king, to tbo might 
of the CrvNtor, who could say unto the sen, 
" Thus lar ehnll thon go, and no briber I" 
We toay lean from this, I think, that a little 
sense wul go a loug way in n king ; find that 
courtien are not easily eurv^l o? flaltssy, or 
kii^ of a tUdnff for IL If the oourtterv of

was vain of this speeeh (anything bnt a 
woaderfiil speech It asems to me, i? a good 
child had mndo it) they would not liavo been 
at snch grrat pains to repeat it. I taney I sue 
tbutt alTou the seashore together; the king's 
efaair sinkiiw in tha sand; the king is a

our itnuid dinner time arrivlnj;, we felt 
very hungry, and vsre dirtctM, by Um
