WILLIAM ALLEN was born at Rossall in 1532, the year in which Henry VIII secretly married Anne Boleyn. That act of the king's is the keynote ot Allen's life, for it changed the existing religion without shaking Allen's faith. It seems surprising that he was still at Oxford after Queen Elizabeth's accession. He crossed to Flanders in 1561 and was accepted as the head of the Roman Catholic exiles at Louvain University.
By many admirers of Elizabeth he has been denounced as a traitor ; he has, just as naturally, been commended by the other side. His fearlessness in returning to England and defying the government is incontestable. Lancashire, Oxford, Norfolk saw him, and felt his presence, before he was compelled to leave England for good in 1565. He founded the English College at
Douay in 1568. In common with his fellow exiles he considered the Roman Catholic religion to be essential to the welfare of his countrymen and, wrong or right, to that cause he devoted his life. He was created Cardinal in 1587 ; he died at Rome in 1594.

It is enough. For now with mine eyes have I seen Thy salvation, which Thou hast prepared for our consolation. He is the Redeemer and Saviour. Thy word I believe, and trusting Thy promise, my heart is at rest. Today should'st Thou call me, with gladness would I take my departure. It is enough I
II. Recitative and Arioso :
It is enough ! My trust in the Lord. I lenow that He is mine, and I would be with Him ; His promise I believe ; thus shall I share with Simeon the joy of everlasting life, and in thu. hope shall I depart I For all the sins and errors of my life, dear Lord forgive me. Ah ! in Thy mercy is my hope ; with joy I bid the world farewell. It is enough I in. Aria:
Slumber on. Oh, weary spirit, softly, calmly take thy rest. World, farewell; no longer here I stay where my soul no peace can find ; nought but sorrow, pain and anguish compass me about on ev'ry side. Here I must in sadness languish, but I know on my beloved Saviour's bosom there is rest.
IV. Recitative and Arioso :
My God ! O let me now depart, my troubles o'er, my journey ended. In the cool earth let me be laid, the gentle earth from which I came. My farewell now is spoken. World I good night.
With gladness will I now depart. My work is (lone, my journey ended. Therefore with joy I will depart. My glad heart with joy shall sing, when I cast off the bonds which bind me.

' Prophets '—II
' Frederick Denison Maurice '
By the Rev. C. E. RAVEN , D.D., Regius
Professor of Divinity, Cambridge
University the second great prophet of the National Church chosen by Professor C. E. Raven is specially identified with two important movements for education in London. He helped to form Queen's College for the education of women (1848) and the Working Men's College (1854). Christian Socialism was a direct result of his teaching.
Frederick Denison Maurice , English theologian, was bom at Normanston, Suffolk, in 1805. He was the son of a Unitarian minister, and he went to Cambridge in 1823, though it was then impossible for any but members of the Established Church to obtain a degree. He obtained a First Class in civil law, came to London, edited the London Literary Chronicle, and also the Athenœum, and finally took orders at Oxford. !
After a brief curacy in Warwickshire, he was appointed Chaplain of Guy's Hospital. From then onwards he became firmly established in the intellectual and social life of London.

An appeal on behalf of THE BRITISH EMPIRE CANCER
CAMPAIGN by LoRD MOYNIHAN, K.C.M.G., C.B.,
THE BRITISH EMPIRE CANCER CAMPAIGN was founded ten years ago to promote research into the causes and cure of cancer. It has branches at home and in all the great Dominions overseas. Both financially and in other ways it assists British institutions and individuals engaged upon lines of research approved by the Scientific Advisory Committee, a body nominated by the Royal Society, the Medical Research Council, and the Campaign.
It promotes co-operation between investigators by organising biennial Conferences, and by suitable means helps the medical profession and lay public to benefit by advances in knowledge to the fullest possible extent. It does not capitalise subscriptions, but uses them directly in the advancement of research, subject to retention of a margin sufficient to secure continuity of the work.
Many promising schemes of cancer research are now being held up for lack of funds.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed].
