THE TENTH SERIES. In congratulating his readers upon the •dawn of another year and the beginning of a fresh Series the Editor takes the opportunity of pointing to the amount of work that has been accomplished during the fiftyfive years in which 'N. & Q.' has been before the public. It is impossible to calculate how many busy pencils have been occupied in making the notes which, in obedience to the suggestion of_ Capt. Cuttle, have been crystallized in' his pages, or how much scholarship has been advantaged by the habit of annotation which has been begotten. It is now a commonplace to say that no serious study can often be conducted without the one hundred and odd volumes of 'N. & Q.' being constantly laid under contribution. Out of the queries that have appeared and been answered books have been extracted, and there are not wanting works of reference which would never have been attempted had the information preserved in our pages been inaccessible. That the study of antiquities, like that of the law, is conducive to long life is testified by the signatures still to be found in our pages,
and the Editor, himself a veteran, can point to a bodyguard that has served under most or all of his predecessors. That he can with absolute assurance indicate any signature as appearing in the earliest and in the latest volumes may not be said. There are those, however, whose work is of frequent occurrence in the First and the Ninth Series, and will, it is to be hoped and expected, be extended to that this week begun. We need only mention Lord Aldenham, Mr. Edward Peacock (under various signatures), and Mr. Everard Home Coleman as among those who virtually bridge over the period between the inception of 'N. & Q.' and the point it has now reached. So far as those at the helm are aware, the only cause for regret is the difficulty of stretching our pages so as to include all of temporary or permanent value that knocks at the door. Meantime the imitators and descendants of 'N. & Q.' constitute a numerous and stalwart band, and there are few counties or districts the folk-lore or speech of which is not in course of being preserved and calendared.
MARLOWE AND SHAKESPEARE A Careful perusal of the first sestiad of 'Hero and Leander' reveals numerous turns of expression out of the ordinary, many of which were subsequently used by Shakespeare, and by him (usually) but once. I do not own any edition of Marlowe's poem with numbered lines, but the interested reader will, I think, find little difficulty, as I have arranged the extracts consecutively as they occur.

'Hero and Leander.' Roxe-cheei'd Adonis hied him to the chase.
