Although IW years old Hobert Collyer does
not show any sign of decadence. His splen

of tho Kugllsh smith and tho American
hammer maker, has stood him In good
stead. Tho mark of time makes Itself
known in tho silvery whiteness of his hair,

of those frequent trips abroad of which tho
pastor of the Church of tho Messiah Is so
fond. Kugllsh scenes, amid which ho was
Isirn and reared, havo evidently a strong
hold on his affections.

Ills father was a Yorkshire blacksmith,
and n good one. Whatever could be done

was a kindly man and earned eighteen
shillings a week. Holiert always refers to
his father Ilia touo of affectionate regard.
"Ho never thrashed mo but once," said he
"for striking my sister and then cried
because I Mould not oil, begged my par
ilou, gave me sixpence and took mo to a
grand 'tuck out' at a club dinner, which
was so good that 1 would havo taken an
other thrashing for tho llko." Them was
a klndhearled blacksmith for a father! Tho

his pipe, his beer and his children. In 1814
ho dropped dead at his anvil,
Mrs, Collyer, Hubert's mother, I find
thus deserlls'il by Moncuro Conway, who
lsltoil her near IatiIs In 187b "Sho Is a
blonde, beautiful old lady of about 77, with
a gentle blue eye and a certain play of hu
mor about eye and mouth which left mo
at no loss to know whero her son got Ids
love of fun. Her voice was clear and kind
and her manner In receiving an old friend
of her son most cordial."
From this sturdy father and gentle
mother Hobert Collyer Inherited thoso
sterling qualities which havo Iwen of great
service to him in his long and useful career.

gavo himself. Ills father's library consist
ed of four hooks only the Hlble, Hun
van's "Pilgrim's Progiess," the "Young
Man's Companion" and "Hoblusoii Cru
soe." From thissmall nucleus he acquired
n ) earning for knowledge and a strong love
of literature. From his Hroailway homo
overlooking tills vast city, three-quarters
of a mile from his handsome church, sur
rounded by hookp and evidences of refine
ment ami culture, his thoughts, he says,
frequently span the vast Atlantic and cen
ter on the spot whero stood that humble
Yorkshire home where ho eagerly de
voured tho contents of thoso four hooks,
and afterward went to school four years
In all to it man nt Fowston, named Willie
Hanlie, whoso principal claim to scholar
ship lay in tho fact that ho had lost tho use
of his legs. In those tlays Hubert's favor
ite Isjoks wero tho Hlblo and "Hoblnsou
Crusoe." It Is possible that they tiro so to
day. Of a strongly religious temiierament, thu
young blacksmith took to preaching. Iu
those days his mother had never heard
him preach, as sho did not reside at Ilk'ley,
where Hobort was apprenticed to tho old
emplo)erof his father. That he was dlfll
dent andsensltlvoat that time Is evidenced
by the fact that he used to say that if his
mother should como In whllo ho was
preaching ho was sure ho should stop
Then, tho day after his marriage, came
tho emigration to America, which meant a
month of discomfort on tho water, during
which time ho frequently preached to his
fellow voyagers; his arrival hero and find
ing work iu Pennsylvania as a hammer
maker; his preaching and working ami
friendship for Lucretia Mott and her
school of thinkers. Then came his change
of views and final severance from tho
Methodist church. Having taken up tho
anti-slavery cause with earnest enthusiasm,
ho fought for It with his fellow workers to
thu end. Ho was active In tho political
campaigns, to tho end that slavery should
lie nbollshed. In ISM he united with the
Unitarian church, and going to Chicago
became u missionary of thu church In that
city, where, In 18W, ho became the minis

seven- members, gradually grow Into a

tiino his reputo as a Uacher and speaker
had extended over the country. In Sep
temlier, lb7l, ho became pastor of the
Church of tho Messiah, New York, and at
once became widely popular.
As we sit Iu his pleasant room Hobort
Collyer touches lightly on thoso things
which relate to himself and hlsworks. He
is, however, fond of relating iucidonts of
his trips abroad. Ho hits revisited Kngland
five times since ISM, each time with In
creasing Interest, and has traveled In other
