FIELDING H. GARRISON
IN the year 1749 there came up to Paris from the Pyrenees a young medical graduate of Montpellier who was destined to become, by reputation, at least, the most distinguished French practitioner of his time. At the age of twenty-three Théophile de Bordeu (1722—76) was already professor of anatomy at Montpellier and inspector of mineral waters at Auch and Pau; at twenty-five he had been elected a corresponding member of the Royal Academy of Sciences, and, except for an empty purse, his Parisian success was assured, not only through his handsome presence, his attractive meridional disposition and his newly acquired fashionable connections, but in part through the influence and reputation of his father, who was one of the best known Montpellier physicians of his time.

A NEW PHASE OF AN OLD CONFLICT

LAUNCELOT W. ANDREWS
WHEN those among us were young, upon whom time has now placed his silver stamp, the intellectual atmosphere was trembling with the noise of a conflict in the clouds. It was called “The Warfare of Science and Religion.” The dragon’s teeth from which this warfare sprang were sown with the first steps in organizing human society.

THE NORMAL CHILD: ITS PHYSICAL GROWTH AND MENTAL DEVELOPMENT

PROFESSOR BIRD T. BALDWIN
FOR purposes of psycho-educational analysis it should be recognized that a child has five parallel or interrelated ages: a chronological age in years, months and days, denotive of the temporal span of life; a physiological age denotive of stages of physical growth and maturity; a mental age denotive of the ripening of certain instincts, capacities and mental traits; a pedagogical age denotive of the rate and position in school progress; and a moral age denotive of fairly well-defined nodes of development in moral judgment and religious awakenings.

COMMON FACTORS IN MENTAL HEALTH AND ILLNESS

DR. F. LYMAN WELLS
I AM asked to deal in these remarks with variations in different human traits which are produced by pathological conditions. For example, although in health John’s eyesight is sometimes better or worse than at others, yet John’s eyesight is so consistently better than James’s that we speak of John as having better eyesight than James.

GERMAN MILITARISM AND ITS INFLUENCE UPON THE INDUSTRIES

DR. HUGO SCHWEITZER
MILITARISM in its true sense is the defense of home and family which has been forced upon the continental nations for the reason that they live in such propinquity to one another. Germany, for instance, is surrounded on all sides by potential enemies.

LUCY ELIZABETH TEXTOR
IT was in the district of Kineshma on the Volga that I first saw that suggestively pitiful sight, thin-growing grain cut by hand. A toil-worn peasant woman, her head covered with a scarlet kerchief, her body bent, grasped the stalks in one hand and cut them with the sickle held in the other.

THE WAR AND THE WEATHER DURING THE FIRST THREE MONTHS OF THE FIGHTING

PROFESSOR ROBERT DEC. WARD
WAR and the weather seem, at first sight, to have no relation to one another. Set in motion by human forces apparently far beyond the control of our ordinary physical surroundings, military campaigns seem likely to go on unaffected by such more or less “accidental” conditions as cold or heat; rain or snow; wind or cloud.

IT is difficult to write, speak or think about anything except the war now devasting Europe and the earth. Although social and economic questions can not be treated with the same objectivity as the natural and exact sciences, THE POPULAR SCIENCE MONTHLY has always included them in its scope, the immediate ground of its establishment in 1872 having indeed been the need of a journal in which to publish Herbert Spencer’s "Principles of Sociology.”
