Excerpt from book: II IN THE WEST: ANTE- BENEDICTINE MONKS 340-480 A. D. WE ARE NOW to follow the fortunes of the monastic system from its introduction in Rome to the time of Benedict of Nursia, the founder of the first great monastic order. Constantine the Great, the first Christian emperor, who made Christianity the predominant religion in the Roman Empire, died in 337 A. D. Three years later Rome heard, probably for the first time, an authentic account of the Egyptian hermits. The story was carried to the Eternal City by Athanasius, Bishop of Alexandria, one of the most remarkable characters in the early church, a man of surpassing courage and perseverance, an intrepid foe of heresy, heroic and invincible, as Milton styled him. Twenty of theforty-six years of his official life were spent in banishment. Athanasius was an intimate friend of the hermit Anthony and a persistent advocate of the ascetic ideal. When he fled to Rome, in 340, to escape the persecutions of the Arians, he took with him two specimens of monastic virtue?Ammonius and Isidore. These hermits, so filthy and savage in appearance, albeit, as I trust, clean in heart, excited general disgust, and their story of the tortures and holiness of their Egyptian brethren was received with derision. But men who had faced and conquered the terrors of the desert were not to be so easily repulsed. Aided by other ascetic travelers from the East they persisted in their propaganda until contempt yielded to admiration. The enthusiasm of the uncouth hermits became contagious. The Christians in Rome now welcomed the story of the recluses as a Divine call to abandon a dissolute society for the peace and joy of a desert life. But before this transformation of public opinion can be appreciated, it is needful to know something of the soc...

Excerpt from book: Plan of Work Starting originally as a report on the " Training and Preparation of Extension Workers," the present work has outgrown ita former scope. In addition to this report,which is somewhat modified and supplemented by quotations from the leaders of extension work throughout the country,four other sections are included. Although it is recognized that a strong relationship and correlation exists between all five parts,yet for the sake of clearness,no attempt has been made to treat all of the sections as one unified work;on the contrary,they are written as distinct and separate groups, corresponding to as many different phases of extension activity. Part One treats of the " History and Development of College Extension Work." " The Present Status of College Extension Work " follows as Part Two. Part Three deals with the " Experience,Training and Preparation of Extension Workers." In Part Four," The Present Statue of Railroad Extension Work in Agriculture," it discussed. And in Part Five,the subject is " The Agricultural Extension Work of Industrial Companies and other Organizations." Method. The method that was used largely in the preparation of this work was that of the questionnaire.Supplementing the questionnaires that were sent to the agricultural colleges, railroads and industrial organizations,are quoted the personal chapter{Section 4opinions of the leaders of extension work in the United States. The personal equation has been used because of the newness of the field. Summary. This thesis does not represent a complete work. With new problems in extension arising every day and with new extension work springing up in various institutions and organizations,who come in contact with the farmer,it would be an almost impossible task to make a complete survey ...

Excerpt from book: produced in nearly every case growth which was histo- logically identical with chalazia in man. Only rarely could the bacillus be again obtained from the experimentally produced chalazia, although in one case he was able to carry the process through a third generation. He concludes as follows: 1. Chalazion represents, etiologically considered, an infectious bacterial process. 2. The bacilli found constantly and alone in considerable quantity in incipient chalazia, are identical in all their properties with that group of "Coryne" bacteria which Kuschbert-Neisser and Leber have cultivated, and which are called "xerosis bacilli." 3. The so-called xerosis bacilli, which are present in the normal conjunctiva, and especially in its various pathologic conditions, probably penetrate the conjunctiva through rubbing of the eye, and on growing there, produce an acute inflammatory process, which changes into a growth composed of chronic granulation tissue. 4. Various catarrhal affections of the conjunctiva and asthenopia in its different forms predispose to these xerosis bacillus affections. 5. In opposition to Baumgarten's opinion of the absolute a-virulence of the xerosis bacilli, experimental chalazia may be produced in rabbits by the injection of xerosis bacilli, obtained not only from human chalazia but from a variety of other pathologic processes. Consequently chalazion is not a retention cyst produced by occlusion of the duct of the Meibomian glands, and the tumor lias none of the characteristics of, nor connection with, tuberculosis.

Excerpt: ... Caucasian, had all the qualifications which 'would fit him to be the companion of his white brother. XX. AN OMEN. The statue of Liberty, which has just crowned the capitol at "Washington, stands as a symbol of the future American of this continent. It was meet and proper that while slavery exercised its baneful sway at the seat of Government, that the great dome of the capitol should have been unfinished, and that the figure of Liberty should not have unveiled its awful form upon the topmost summit. The maker of that statue has "builded better than he knew." In order to insure it against the storms and variable temperature of a Yirginia atmosphere, it has been washed with an acid which has caused a slight oxidation, producing a rich and uniform bronze tint, which no rains can discolour and no sun bleach. When the traveller approaches the city of magnificent distances, the seat of what is destined to be the greatest and most beneficent power on earth, the first object that will strike his eye will be the figure of Liberty surmounting the capitol; not white, symbolizing but one race, nor black, typifying another, but a statue representing the composite race, whose sway will extend from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean, from the equator to the north pole--the Miscegens of the future. CONCLUSIONS. In the preceding pages the author has endeavoured to make plain the following propositions: -- 1. That as by the teaching of science, religion, and democracy, the whole human race is of one family, it follows that there should be no distinction in political or social rights, on account of colour, race, or nativity, in a republic. 2. That the doctrine of human brotherhood should be accepted in its entirety in the United States, and that it implies the right of whi...

THE MINORET PROPERTY. The action began with a scene so hackneyed in literature, whether old or new, that no one would believe in its effect in 1829 if the principal figure were not an old lady of Brittany, a Kergarouet, and an emigres. But it must at once be made clear that in 1829 the nobility had reconquered in society some of the ground it had lost in political influence. Moreover, the feeling which governs grandparents when matrimonial suitability is in question, is imperishable; it is closely implicated with the existence of civilized society, and founded in family spirit. It is supreme at Geneva as at Vienna, and as at Nemours, where Zelie Levrault had refused her consent to her son's marrying the daughter of a bastard. Still, every social law has its exceptions. Savinien proposed trying to bend his mother's pride before Ursule's innate nobility. The battle began forthwith. As soon as he was seated at table his mother began to tell him of the dreadful letters, as she called them, written to her by the Kergarouets, and the Portendueres. "The family has ceased t'o exist, my dear mother," replied Savinien. "Nothing is left but the individual. The nobility no longer forms a compact body. Nowadays no one asks if you are a Portenduere, or if you are brave, or a statesman; all that any one inquires is, 'How much do you pay in rates and taxes ?"' "And the King?" asked the old lady. "The King stands between the two Chambers, like a man between his lawful wife and his mistress. So I must contrive to marry some rich girf whatever her family may be--a peasant's daughter if she has a million of francs, and if she is (136) fairly well brought up; that is to say, if she comes from a convent-school." "This is quite another matter " said the old lady. Savinien knit his brows over...
