Cobbe, F. P. (n.d.). Criminals, Idiots, Women and Minors. Retrieved from

THERE was an allegory rather popular about thirty years ago, whose manifest purpose was to impress on the juvenile mind that tendency which Mr. Matthew Arnold has ingeniously designated Hebraism. The hero of the tale descends upon earth from some distant planet, and is conducted by a mundane cicerone through one of our great cities, where he beholds the docks and arsenals, the streets and marts, the galleries of art, and the palaces of royalty. The visitor admires everything till he happens to pass a grave-yard. What is that gloomy spot? he asks of his companion. It is a cemetery, replies the guide.
