. But these men of high purpose
deep earnestness go on dreaming

patiently for the soft whispers

hets of old'they dream dreams

are accustomed to value the in

A ew months ago I stood on a great
-prairie in Texas and saw a man leave
the earth on .a monoplane, and fly
:a,way as coiddently as a bird. Rising
)igher and hig'her in graceful curves,
be soared aloft till he became a merm
speck on the clouds. Ten thousand
faces were turned upward as they
watched him sail into the great mass
o .vapor and become lost to view.
Men as they looked became dumb. Di
rectly the new bird of the air emerg
ed from the clouds on L?e iarther edge.
He turned his course homeward, and
shutting.off his power, swooped down
ward at terrific speed, in a glide as
Sgraceful as ever the proud eagle made.
As the machine rested gently on thE
eath, the aviator leaped to the ground
'amid the wild shouts from ten thous

I When by cutting the dykes and
flooding their country, the Dutch forc
ed the Spaniads to raise the siege of
Leyden, one would suppose that their
first thoughts would have been direct
Ted to the repai.3ng of their fortunes
and the healing of their wounds. In
stead, hardly had the :booming of tne
hostile guns and the angry shouts of
.te Spanish soldiery died away. when
forgetful of past suffering and pres
eng sorrow the burghers met and un
animously resolved to found the uni
versity of Leyden. Such a people is
invincible! We need not wonder that
Philip and Alva abandoned the at.
tempt to perpetrate u.pon such a peo
ple a wrong so infamous.
The Dutch gave to the world the
spirit of modern liberty. The Pilgrim
fathers brought from the Netherlands
to America that same spirit. It found
ere a congenial clime, and here let
us hope it will ever remain The es
tablishment of a system of education
and the founding of Harvard collegE
constitute almost an exact parallel to
The policy of the Dutch. From these
bumble ,beginnings the influence has
spread, until the United states has
become a nation of schools and col
1ges and universities.
The Puritan and the Dutch reform
-ers both realized that without rever
'ece there can be no true liberty.
-They saw plainly one of the great
facts of political science, that liberty
is not license. They fully understood
that up to the source from which
genuine liberty must come they must
look in order to livte; that from this
same source they must learn; and
that, in order to learn they must asi
for guidance and have an abiding
igt in the plans and puirposes of
im who would lead them. Thus was
fostered that spirit of reverence with
out which no nation Ever has been
or ever will be permanent.

to disce:-n tne ominous c,ouds that
are gathering, but it will require the

Let us not be deceivred. It is too
often the fashion to boast the spirit
of opt*inism and condemn those who
do not acquiesce by denouncing them
as pessimists. The latter is some
times a safer leader and a wiser coun
cillor than the blind optimist. No
more dangerous condition can curse a
people than the lethargic confidence
that evils will right themselves some
how, somewhere, at sometime. Hu
manity has ever advanced by means
of inspiration drawn from the ideals
of life. Whenever, for a time, those
ideals have been lost, man has wan
dered strangely and fatally far from
the way that leads to the mountain's
summit whence can be seen the fair
land of Beulah.
The disposition of a nation is sim
ply the disposition of the individual
multiplied. When one has for many
Years lived in -9 state of perfect
health, he has really no appreciation
of the great blessing thdt he enjoys.1
The people of America, for a reasoni
entirely analogous, have absolutely no
adequate appreciation of the -priceless
boon of civil and religious liberty.
Having never felt the .weight of th ty
rant's heel upon their necks, nor ever
been forced to be the cringing vassals
of a spiritual despot, they sleep in in
nocent seourity, while the chains of
a dual slavery may be forging in the
workship of their own blind folly.
Ariosto tells the story of a spirit
that alternately changes its form, first
into that of a virle and loathesome rep
'ile and then into that of a most beau
tiful and bewitching fairy. If it is
kindly treated when in its degraded*
State, uport assuming the guise of a
fairy, it showers its richest blessings
upon its benefactor. But, if trodden
under foot and crushed when a repul
sive reptile, woe to the malefactor
when it changes into its state of beau
ty and power.
Similar is the condition of human
liberty. Stamped upon by 'entrencned
power, insulted by hoarded wealth,
scoffed at by sacredotal bigotry, and
reviled by the unithinking multitude, it
must await the day of its transforma
tion. When once the form of Deauty
is assumed, woe to the people who
were un'kind to it in its lowly estate.
I would utter a fervent hope that
liberty *may not now be undergoing
the transformation into the lower and
forgidding form. But Vne ominous
fact remains that, as a nation, we are
losing the spirit of reverence and are
refusing to follow whither our ideals
lead. Without friendship there can
be no love; without faith, no duty';
without reverence, no liberty.

sffice to lower a nation's standards
