The mind grown hy what it feeds up
on. The abundance or poverty of nu
tation in the meiitul food, a man as
similates, builds up, or (hunt's his in
tellectual stature. The diil'ereuces
among mankind, are the results of the
differences in the nourishment on
which their minds feed. All civilisa
tion is an Illustration of what can he
accomplished by feeding the human
mind. All barbaric and savage life
is an illustration of mental ami moral
starvation. Education is a process of
man tattling hy means of careful and
nutritious mental feeding. There is a
little of the original savage left in
every one of us. Successive ages of
mental and moral accretions have
covered this primitive harharisin with
concentric layers of civilization
—an I it is only when some
volcanic, eruption of passion hursts
the efim of culture and refine
ment, that this smoldering sav
age conies to the surface.
Let the integuments of conventional,
artificial, and acquired gentleness, he
thrown off and we stand revealed as
savage, and as rude as the veriest pir
ate among our Saxon ancestors, who
hurl led down against the white shore
of Britain 1,800 years ago. The re
finement, the amenities, the benevo
lence, the purities of civilized life, are
accretions grown hy a generous sys
tem of mental and moral dietetics —
cut oil' from all intellectual aliment,
and the culminated product of ages of
civilization would he starved into the
deepest harharism, in a single genera
at ion. Do you douht my propositions'.'
Take him in his infancy, the off
spring of the bluest hlood, of Puritan
or Cavalier, nurture him from child
hood to manhood, amid the savagery
of an Indian camp—ami when he takes
the war-path he will swing the toma
hawk, or fly the scalping knife amid
the attbUrn locks of his Caucasian
brother, with as keen a gusto as the
tawniest son of an aboriginee, to the
Retrogression is simple—progression
uomplc. From civilization to barbar
ism is a down grade. From barbar
ism to civilization a steep antl diffi
cult ascent. Do these assertions savor
ot tbe barbarian? IPossibly they do.
Tbe latent savage within me at timet
awakes and takes gratification in
tomahawking old beliefs, aiid gloats
with wild ferocity over the scalp
lock of a slaughtered myth. But for
all that, this is not to be the war
whoop of my savage, but instead, a
plaintive plea for suffering humanity.
It is not of the 3,000 women of Bos
ton, starving over the needle; it is
not of the pauper hordes, that crowd
unsavory dens in New York; it is not
of the famine stricken or the hunger
pressed of any land, that I write; I in
tend no learned discussion on the de
creasing ratio of supply to demand; I
enter upon no dreary Malthusian cal
culations of how many units of poor
humanity must perish that the tens
may live. Ft is mental hunger not
bodily I shall discourse. I shall try to
the best of my ability to answer that
homely question, with what shall we
feed them, the teachers, the caterers,
the purveyors tothe mental wants of
the thousands of schoolboys and school,
girls who look up to us for their daily
dole of intellectual food, with that we
shall feed these hungry little minds.
And how shall we the Soyers and
Professor Blots of the cuisine of in
numerable scholastic kitchens, pre
pare that food so as to make it
most palatable, and at the same time
most nutritious, and most conducive to
their mental growth. Ah! how often
have our hearts sunk within us as we
have looked upon the scanty store in
our mental larders, and how sincerely
have we wished at such times that
some miraculous power might he giv
en us to make our live loaves, and two
little Ashes to feed the multitude. With
what shall we feed them? Where is the
teacher whose conception of his work
rises above the per diem of his pay,
who has not asked himself the ques
tion in some form or other.
For five days in the week through
ten months in the year we make our
scanty bills of fare. For five days in
tbe week through ten months iv the
year we dish out Utile doles of arith
metic, grammar and geography. We
sweeten them with Mattery or spice
them with reproof, and alack! that it
must lie so; sometimes hasten degluti
tion by the aid of the birch, and il the
juvenile boarders in our scholastic
dining hall do not grow mentally fat
upon such regimen, surely the fault
liesjjjo/ in the cuisine nor in the cook.
If the latent savage in their natures
does sometimes break through the
thin accretions grown by such lusty
feeding, and yells against your methods
of taming, subjugate him with a
rule of syntax or crush him down with
a formula of arithmetic. And here a
perverse fancy seizes me—why would
it not be a good plan to settle the In
dian question—now that the Quaker
policy of theeiny and thoniug the noble
led men into behavior has failed, to
let the schoolmaster have a tilt at him
with the rules of syntax, and the
theory of inverting the divisor. But
to return |to .our question, with what
kind of food shall we teachers, feed
the minds of the rising generation.
With that mental food which will
promote the healthiest growth, mor
ally and Intellectually, that will give
the thoughts intellectual fiber—that
will insure the broadest develop
ment; that will unfold their indivual
ities to the full; that will prepare
them to live the life before them not in
the mere material sense, but in the
widest sense, the fullest and noblest.
Do our existing systems of culture
und education give this? Only to
a limited extent. Passing by our
common schools, in which the Intel
lectual food tlii; ugh not us good as It
might he, is pperior to that of the
more preteiUT'hs caravansaries of
Los Angeles Daily Herald.
knowledge, let us come at once to
the oxamination ofthe fare offered by*
those Delnionieos, and Occidentals of
Education, the Harvard*, the Vales,
the Princetons, and others ofthe class.
I make no apology, devoting the
greater portion of my address to criti
cism upon the curriculum or course
of study in our colleges and univer
sity. It may he urged that it is
out of our province to at tack the
curriculem of these institutions. I
answer that our district schools are
the feeders of the colleges and univer
sities. We lay the foundation, teach
ers in these complete the structure.
We certainly are interested iv know
ing what kind of an edilice is reared
upon our ground work. Again the
public school teacher is a sort of a
father confessor to the parents and
children of this district. Is a boy to
be sent from the district school to
complete his education in a college
or university, in nine out of the ten the
parent will consult the teacher in re
gard to what course of study it is best
for that hoy to pursue. To aid the
teacher to knowingly give advice I
write. And again at our last Institute
the topic elicited by far the greatest
interest in its discussion was the ques
tion of the value of the Greek and
Latin elases iv education, and the ad
visability of introducing the study of
them into the advanced grades of our
public schools. By a majority of
three to one, the question was decided
in favor of Introducing the Classic.
And again- among the professors
patrons, advocates, and retainers of
this monastic or traditional course of
study in our higher institutions of
learning our numbered some of the
bitterest opponents and enemies of
of our common school system. These
stand ready at any time, with gloomy
arrays of statistics to prove our fail
ures", their teachers ignoramuses or
worse, and the children in them going
pell mell to the "demnition bow
wows." One distinguished reverend
instructor, not long since, declared
our common schools to be "hot beds
of crime and immorality, enemies to
God and foes to the church." 1 be
lieve most implicity in our common
schools; I believe that upon their con
tinuance and success, depends the per
petuity of our institutions, the welfare
of our people, and the prosperity of
our nation. Believing all this, does
not blind me to defects in them. But
these defects sink into utter signitt
gance when weighed against the in
calculable good they have done and
I deny the right of these self-an
nointed High Priests of Education to
cast me out of the synagogue, because
I cannot cry their shibbaleth, and
their right to weaken the growing
confidence of the people in our com
mon schools. Our common school
system and the method of instruction
in it, are open tovriticism but not to
wholesale denunciation. I claim that
our colleges and universites, in adher
ing to an antiquated curriculum or
course of study does not meet the
intellectual wants of the age; 1 claim
that they do not give the mental cul
ture demanded by modern life. I
shall make an attempt to prove this.
Away back in medieval centuries—
when the first gleams of the sunlight
of Intelligence were beginning to il
lumnc, the murky horizon of the
Dark Ages-some quaint old peda
gogue seeking for some new invention
to attract pupils to his school, hit up
on this strange device. Superstition
hail attached a mystical reverence
to the sacred number of "Seven"
which in those semibarbaric times
was supposed to be the key to order of
the Universe. "There were seven car
dinal virtues, seven deadly sins,
seven sacraments, seven days in the
week, seven metals, seven planets,
seven apertures in man's head, "anil
why not" said the jolly old peda
gogue, make a course of Liberal study
consist of seven arts and occupy seven
years; and then following another
strange fancy about the relation of S* to
4 in a certain geometrical figure, these
seven arts were divided into groups
The first three (or greatest A rts) ti ram
mer, Logic, and Rhetoric composed
the Trivlum (literally, a place where
three roads meet,) and the remaining
four, Arithmetic, Geometry, Astrono
my, and Music formed the Qndrivium
(literally a place where four roads
meet, or cross roads) and iv those
brave days of old, when they deified
Belief and crucified Doubt, when
priestcraft was one of the Fine Arts,
and Necromancy one of the liberal
sciences this fanciful scheme of YAu
catlon became the prevailing system;
and from one generation of pedagogues
to another through succeeding centu
ries was handed down unquestioned
and unchanged. Empires rose and
fell, nations perished, new worlds
were discovered, new truths evolved,
but the curriculum of the school
altered not. Investigation and ex
periment brought forth new arts, and
new sciences; but heedless of their
claims in intellectual culture, every
generation of youth were forced to
make, their pilgrimage to the temple
of knowledge—by the devious wander
ing roads of the Trivlum aud the
Quadrivium, that lead through ancient
Greece and Rome, Pedantic Masters,
from the cloistered halls of Colleges
and Universities, the pretended" seats
of liberal culture, thundered anthems
against every new science against
every new discovery made in the
realms of Knowledge. With a devotion
akin to idolatry they clung to their
Greek and Latin authorities as the only
source of sound learning, whether in
philosophy or in rhetoric, in poetry
or in history, in medicine or in law.
Said they, "The learning of the Greek
and Latin languages is the only foun
dation of a thorough education; the
knowledge of the grammer ought to
proceed all other knowledge; and phil
ologists are the only thoroughly
Despising the source from whence
the ancients derived their knowledge,
the study of Nature and the observa
tion of man—they, contented with the
mere pictures of these drawn by those
antiquated limners of thought, the
(Jreek and Roman Authors. Ignoring
the fact that the world was older and
wiser than in the days of Homer and
Hesiad; despising all modern science,
and discouraging all the acquisition of
all practical knowledge, that could
tend in any way to benefit or elevate
the race; dealing in alstroction, wast
ing their talents in the construction of
ethical riddles, and their abilities in
unraveling philological puzzles, yet
with a strange incongruity of terms
these Schoolmen appropriated to
themselves the name of Humanists
LOS ANGELES, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1878.
because they said the learning they
were masters of was the only knowl
edge that had any bearing upon the
weal or woes of humanity.
We laugh at the ignorance of these
old pedants, we lament their bigotry,
and denounce their intolerance, we
boast of our intellectual progress, and
are proud of our schools of learning.
Yet to-day in the eighth decade of the
ninteentli century, every youth who
uspires to what is called a liberal edu
cation, must pursue his journey in
search of truth, over the curriculum of
the Trlvlum and the Ouadrivium,
must make his pilgrimage to the tem
ple of knowledge over the winding
ways that lead him through ancient
Greece and Rome. Do you doubt this?
Take up a cataloue of any one of the
Colleges and Universities, in the Uni
ted States, turn to the classical course,
the only one in the estimation of
their professors that gives a liberal
culture, and in every one of them
from the thick and bulky pamphlets
that make the catalogues ot Harvard
and Yale, to the thin and starved look
ing circular of some scholastic nursery,
in the far West, glorifying itself hy
the title of University, and you will
find laid down the seven arts of the
Trivium and the Qudrivium the three
roads that lead (possibly)to eloquence,
and the four roads that lead nowhere.
It takes four years to complete the
classical course of our American Col
leges. To enter the college proper,
requires three years continual drill in
Latin and Greek, with perhaps a
moiety of time devoted to mathemat
ics. To enter upon the preparatory
course the pupil is required to have
some knowledge of English Grammar,
Arithmetic, and Geography; but even
these limited requisites are not strictly
insisted upon hy some of these prepar
atory schools. 'I know graduates from
some of the highest collegiate institu
tions in the land, who have never
studied English Grammar, and whose
study of Geography, embraced only
that little belt of the earth, on the
shores of the Mediteranean; where
"Where burning Sappho loved and sung
Where Dclos rose, and Phoebus sprung."
To gain admission into the Freshman
class of our better colleges the appli
cant must pass examination in all the
Greek and Latin authors he has read
during the preparatory course—which
run about as follows: Latin, Caesar
four books, Virgil, six books, Cicero,
six orations, Greek, Xenophon's, An
alysis, three books, Memorabilia, and
four Gospels of the Greek test besides
the Grammars of both languages, and
in some institutions Greek and Latin
prose composition. In mathematics.
Algebra to Quadaratie Equations, and
in four books of Geometry. A boy of
ordinary intelligence, withun average
knowledge of Arithmetic to begin
with, could master all the mathemat
ics requisite to enter our best colleges
iv six months, the remaining two
years and a half may be credited to
Latin and Greek. When he enters
college he begins another round of an
cient languages. The course of study
laid down in the college curriculum,
for every term from the lirst in the
Freshman year, to the last in the Sen
ior, begins with Latin aud Greek fol
lowed by mathematics, and occasion
ally, as* if byway of punishment for
their inferiority tapers off with one of
the Natural Sciences, Chemistry,
Botany, Geology, or Physiology, etc.
A single term varying from ten to
twenty weeks, is considered sulticient
time to waste upon any one of these.
The term occupied in the study of the
Physical Sciences, Fhiglish Literature,
and pure Mathematics would not re
quire more than two yearsof the whole
course preparatory and collegiate,
leaving at least five out of the seven
years to be devoted solely to Latin
and Greek. The demand for better
instruction in the modern sciences has
forced many of our higher institutions
of leaining,"wlthin the last ten or fif
teen years, to establish a scientific
course distinct from their classical.
But in all these institutions there ex
ists a caste, or aristocracy, that looks
down with contempt upon the scien
tifics. The scientific student is not el
igible to membership In college socie
ties, is denied college honors, and is
even ostracised from a share in the
traditional college pranks. The soph
omore who would descend so low as to
haze a scientific, would be deemed a
Pariah, and would be an outcast from
the edifying society of his fellow ruf
fians. It is but very recently that any
of the colleges conferred degrees upon
those completing a scientific course.
The honor conferred by the possession
of such a degree is considered by the
college-bred to be far inferior to that
which pertains to the possession of a
Looking back through the maze of
bygone years, and viewing dispassion
ately the Inventive! that prompted
me and my classmates to begin, con
tinue and complete a classical course,
I am inclined to believe that it was
not so much the love of learning that
impelled and urged us on, as the de
sire of writing A. 8., and in due time
A. M. after our names through life.
There is a barbaric love of display in
every one of us that delights on titles
and honors, and the emptier these are
the more we seem to love them, and
to cling to them. The doughty civil
ian upon whom some practical joker
has conferred the rank of General, re
ceives it as a meed due to his martial
bearing, and guards his empty title
forever after more jealously than he
does his integrity. The holiday Colo

sword has cleft no deadlier foe than
the empty air, frowns fiercer than the
gods of war should you inadvertently
address him without adding his prefix.

University or California, )
Department of Lano v auks. -
Oakland, July 11. 1872. )
Herewith I certify Dial Miss Josephine Lind
ley iias been a student in my department of
the University for five consecutive terms, viz:
from September, 1870, to April 3d, 1872. During
this time she studied the French, the Spanish
and the German languages, obtaining always
the highest marks for proficiency and attend
ance, her average credit mark for Aye terma
being 97 per cent.
On entering the University, Miss Lindley
, possessed already such knowledge of the
French and Spanish.idioms as to be able to
spenk them with ease, fluency, correctness,
and a pure pronunciation.
She may now be considered thoroughly fa
-1 miliar with the theory and philosophy, us well
as with the application of these two tongues;
and she may safely be recommended as a can
didate of great promise, for teaching the
French and Spanish languages.
