Above its distant, glittering rim Streams o'er the waves a flood of gold, To gild the mountains, bare and grim, Which guard this exit, as of old,-- The sombre sentries of two seas, The Pillars reared by Hercules;-- Gibraltar,--on the northern shore, By conquering Moors once proudly trod,-- And, to the south a league or more, Huge Abyla, the "Mount of God", Whence burdened Atlas watched with ease The Gardens of Hesperides.

Swayed by these feelings, the position of a clergyman's wife seems second only to that of the nun, and has therefore a wonderful attractiveness, an attractiveness in which the particular clergyman affected plays a very subordinate part; it is the "sacred office", the nearness to "holy things", the consecration involved, which seem to make the wife a nearer worshipper than those who do not partake in the immediate "services of the altar"--it is all these that shed a glamor over the clerical life which attracts most those who are most apt to self-devotion, most swayed by imagination.
