PROFESSOR C. H. HITCHCOCK
THE ancient Greeks tell of a river of the Peloponnesus called Alpheus, rising in Mt. Stymphalus, flowing through Arcadia and Elis, and then making its way beneath the Mediterranean as far as Sicily, where it united with the fountain Arethusa near Syracuse.

DR. VOLNEY M. SPALDING
THE annual reports of the Reclamation Service of the United States and current numbers of Forestry and Irrigation embody, as is well known, a large amount of information of great general interest and at the same time of vital concern to that half of the country lying west of the Missouri River.

PROFESSOR R. D. GEORGE
THE use of metals by the ancients antedates authentic history. So far as the discoveries of the archeologist have shown, the metals first used by mankind were those which occur native, such as gold, silver and copper. These three possess qualities which would appeal to the primitive workman.

DR. CHARLES R. EASTMAN
AS has been aptly remarked by Huxley, ‘There is no snare in which the feet of a modern student of ancient lore are more easily entangled, than that which is spread by the similarity of the language of antiquity to modern modes of expression.' The great exponent of evolution observes further in the same connection that he does ‘not pretend to interpret the obscurist of Greek philosophers’; all that he wishes to point out is that ‘the words, in the sense accepted by competent interpreters, fit modern ideas singularly well.’

THE PHILOSOPHY OF FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE.

PROFESSOR FRANK THILLY
EVERY once in a while in the history of human thought a man arises who protests against the mass of tradition in custom, law, morality, science, philosophy and religion, and asserts his own individuality. In the presence of the accumulated acquisitions of human minds and human hands, he experiences a feeling of restraint and dependence, he finds his thought and action tied down on every side by the traditional theories and rules of past generations; the weight of ages rests as an incubus upon his soul and he longs for the free and untrammeled use of his head and heart and hands.

A SIMPLE statement of what can be done and has been done with children is attempted in this article by one who for five years maintained a school in Ottawa for boys, limited in number to twenty and ranging in age from eight to fourteen years. The afternoon work of this school was conditioned by the season.

No questions are so often asked of the oculist by his patients as, Why do so many people, and even children, have to wear spectacles nowadays?' ‘Are we deteriorating?’ ‘Are eyes so much poorer than formerly?' ‘My grandfather did not wear glasses,' etc.

PROFESSOR JOHN J. STEVENSON
ABOUT a year ago, the writer discussed some matters bearing upon the condition of college instructors in America. A restatement of some parts of that discussion is necessary, as events occurring during the interval have tended to divert attention from the more important issues.
