Dlscusses Body and Soul.
CONSIDERS ORIGIN OF MAN
Bomeof the Many Themes Regardlng
lhe Prehistorlc Development?Soul
Has Grown and Developed, Too.
Stnges of Llfo. '
On Tuesday evenlng last at Rlchmond
College Dr. G. Stnnley Hnll, presldent of
Clark Unlverslty, dcllvorod a remarknble
address, belng lhe second ln tho James
Thomas course, Professor Hall's theme
N*a "NCw Ideas of the Soul; Devolopmont
ef the Soul ln Chlldren and Anlmnls."
The locturer was glvon tho closest at?
tentlon, and some of tlio speaker's Ut
'.arancos are horo reprodueod:
Chlldhood. os a solenlino study. he de
clared. ls now, but already its literature
ls enormousT wlth 3,000 tltles ot sclentlllc
books on it, soven jotirnals and many bo
cletles, chalrs In seventeen colloges nnd
ln many normal sohools devoted to It.
It Is studled In Germany even. It hnd Its
beglnning In America. but ls recognlstoo
In all the world. Astronomy has a cul
ture value; ohlld study Is more, It has
in Immedlate and practlcal value.
The chlld In llfo repeats the entlre hls?
tory ot tho human llfe. It beglns as a
celi and blology clalms that then were
neons when the only croature wlth llfo
was unlcellulnr. The cell was dlvlded,
and became in time more complex, untll
lt: reached the metnzonn stnge, then tho
vertebrate, tho mnmmal, the man as a
type, 'and-ffnally the lndlvldual. Tht fun
damontal aualllles cnmo 'flrst. then tho
As nn illuatrntlon, tho human embryo
ofone mouth has glll slts In.tho neck,
the upper one of wlilch Is drnwn around
nnd becomes the eyo, another becomes
thn oar, another the vocnl chord, tho
lowest becomes cerinln glnnds. The
in'font had to pass through thls glll
sllt stnge. I-Ia.d some Ignorant powor re?
moved the-'Bllls as itseloss, the result
would have boen dlsnstrous. Comparo
tho tad-pole's tall. The tnd-poto never
dropped its tall, but absorhed it. Cut It
off. nnd the logs would nover deyolpp.
J-Tenco you would nover have the frog.
Chlldren pass through stnges llko nn
ImaJs. The stage of low rtiornls must bo
Ilvod out, too. llke tho others. Chlldren
should dnvelop freoly; we should get
[put' of nature's way. Thu nnlmnl stnge In
chlldren must be developed, Just ns tnlls
hy tad-poles. .
The spul. accordlng to modern Ideas, ls
as old as the body.' Tho deflnltlon ot soul
ls not yet possible. nor woud Helmholz,
the great physlclst, deflno nny. Tho
soul ls a part of the great push-up. lts
generlc study has hnd too (Ittle attontlon
glven to it. Wo can't sny how old tho
soul ls. It has been nffected by every
experlence ln the raco hlsthry, even overy
tay of sunshlne has been reglstered on It.
OBIGIN OF' MAN.
-.. By hydropsychosis is meant the wator
Crlgln of man. Thls ls seen In the sway
tng of chlldren; some sny thoy swtiy back
and-.forth, for flsh wng thelr tnlls. An
Infant adppqrted on tho stomnch wlll wng
legs nnd hands, and one chlld, when sus
pehded ln warm writor, mvam some four
teen Inches. These swlmmlng movements
are- belleved to be echoes iof a prlmltlvo
stnge. The young. seal, after hlrth, wlll
drown ln.water, nnd hns to bo taiight lo
swlm. Thls Is because Ihe seal <vas orlgl
nally a lnnd nnlmnl, nnd Imcksllded to tho
wnter. So tho whale and other nnimals.
Truancy of chlldren ls from deslre to get
to water and to play and swlm In It.
Tho chlef method of sulclde among wo?
men, who reprosent manklnd better than
man, ls by-drownlng. The old sea draws
THBES?Some say man origlnnlly wns
nrboreal. Huxly says t;hnt the lrnhds'
dovolopment was due lo llfe ln trees, The
forefeet were found more convenient to
handle nuts. tho hlnd feet to stnnd upon;
hence tho separate development of them.
Man dlffers from the ape In tho hand as
much ns In Intelllgence. A chlld wlU sus
pend Itself upon n eone: one wns known
to hang three and a half mlnutes. After
three months the power ls lost. even for
years. What Is to be sald of the -ehlld's
fondness for gettlng Its hands on the eyes,
ears and halr.
Somo clalm that Its fear of llghtnlng
points back to llfe'..ln trees In hot coun
trlos, when frequentlv trees were struck.
But thls ls Irrntlo'nnl.
At least, there are 140 rudlmontary or
gans In the human body whlch nre of no
use, They are trares of organs onoe of
great use, but now they are penslonors,
rulns, sources of dangcr and disease. So
tlie soul has rudlmentdry tiseless orgnns.
The Druld, tho tree stoge ls natural In
tlie progress of rellglon. .Tho soul camo
down tou s from an (mmemoriHl past. lt
would be very diffcrent. but for thlngs
that happoned nges ago. ln the Soul's
development thoso thlngs last acqulred
are most enslly lost.
ANTMALS IN THE HEAVBNS.
CLOUDS. Without clouds wo, perhaps,
j shouldn't even have hnd Imnglnution.
Chlldren see beasts. bostles, evorythlng ln
the heavens. This expcrlonee has made
the upper wnrld, has dlrectcd mnh's
thoughts to higher Ihlngs, The Hlndoos
hnd 3.000 gods, and evory one of hoavenly
nbjoet. The GreeV gods ln orlgln aro ot
heavenly objects. Beautlful sunsets, sun
rlse and such slghts chnnged the soul, Thn
mlnd, wenker nt evpnlng, was under Influ
enee of dnrkness. The hrlnglng by Prom
etheus of fire from heaven wrought a
change. The light Is snntched back. So
chlldren aro wllder at evenlng; they call
upon thelr reservn energy, Fire has play
ed great pnrt ln tho soul.
Man nxperlencos a change, but few de
grees of tempernture; but his Interest ln
Jower degrees of 'tempernture, somo say,
points bank to prlnieval cold, sn that ho
flnds Interest ln such matters. The chlld
evolved n cold-god In Jack Frost.
M1GRATION. Man wns a great ml
grater; he moved muoh. Jfls prehistorlc
rnlgratlons and consequent race mlxlngs
Imthors anthreopologlsts In soparnllng
races. So lh" chlld In a great mlgrnter,
Jlkes to run away from slieer love of go
jng. Another Btuge ls deslre to run away
from school, and agaln the Inollnatlons
to brenk away from homo tles.

STAUNTON, VA. Aprll 4.-The local

or not Staunton would have a ? Street'
Carnlval somo tlme durlng the spring.
Mr. Jacob Kdmunds, representlng the
Cincinnatl Carnlval Company was present
and made a long talk before the Board of
Trade. Thls gentleman seemed to bo very
falr lndeed, not asklng for any guarantee
of money whatevor, but slmply wanted to
appear undor tho ausplccs of some local
order. Mr. J. P. Shreckhlse opposed the
holdlng of 'a carnlval. Also a number of
merchants jolned Mr. Shreckhlse ln the
opposition, clalmlng that tho last carnlval
hurt thelr buslness to a great oxtent.
Mr. Ernest Harman, wholesnlo llquor
dealer of thls Clty, argued ln favor of
havlng a carnlval. As the carnlval was
proposed to bo held under thb ausplccs of

Depurtment, clrculated a petltlon Tues?

there was only ono vote ln favor of hold?
lng-a carnlval, thorefore Staunton wlll
