Among the heathen Norsemen, indeed, the _holm-gang_, or single combat, was so universal an arbiter that it was recognized as conferring a right where none pre-existed. The man who eludes our most innocent questions, who gives no satisfaction to our most inoffensive inquiries, who plainly wraps himself up in impenetrable obscurity, seems, as it were, to build a wall about his breast. If Pindar bores us, we admit it; we are not certain that Sappho was _very_ much greater than Catullus; we hold various opinions about Vergil; and we think more highly of Petronius than our grandfathers did. It is easy for any one to try the experiment upon himself; that is, to examine every time he is waked up suddenly, so that his waking and sleeping state are brought into immediate contact, whether he has not in all such cases been dreaming of something, and not fairly _caught napping_.

In one case an old man and his daughter, five months gone in pregnancy, died under the lash. In a case occurring in the thirteenth century, of a priest accused of homicide who failed in his compurgation, he appealed to the Holy See on the ground that his accusers were perjurers and that the bishop had chosen the compurgators to suit himself.[136] As a matter of course, the result of the trial depended, as it does with the modern jury, on the fairness with which the choice was made, and in the universal corruption of the middle ages there is no reason to suppose that favoritism or bribery was not a controlling influence in a majority of cases. It is pleasant to a humorous contemplation to note the high pretensions of the “fine world”; how naively, for instance, it assumes that it holds all the men of brains and all the good talkers in its service;[280] pleasant, that is {332} to say, to one who bears in mind some of the characteristics of this world, such as a certain emptiness in the matter of ideas, together with something of the readiness of a certain kind of dog to follow any self-appointed leader, and an amiable impartiality in crowning any sort of “hero” that happens to be trumpeted, whether potentate from the East or showman from the West.

The conceit which Bacon here talks about is, we all know, by no means a universal accompaniment of laughter; and, what is more important, even when it occurs it is wont to grow distinct rather in the form of an afterthought than in that of an antecedent. We may reasonably infer, then, that in this turbulent fun there is some consciousness of setting law at defiance. Here we have the possibilities of trouble at once.
