I appreciate very deeply the compliment

Let us consider for a moment wha: !
life has been. When the men of my '

just been inaugurated president. Four j
years were yet to pass before the war ;
with Spain would be fought. Xo foreign
possession of the United States
existed. The poles of the ear:h had
not yet been reached. The telephone
and the phonograph were in their infancy.
Xeit'.ier motor driven vehicles, | .
wireless 'elegrapuy or practical aviation
had yet been attained and the X
Ray, ultra violet ray and radium had ;
not been discovered. The years since !
then have been fairly crowded wi:h I
events. A new world has come into ,
existence, and a world wholly un- j
like that of our fathers?unlike it in j
peace and unlike it in war. It is a I
T.'orld o: grea: intellectual quickening, I
"which has extended until it now touch- i

many countries, than it ever touched j
before. No. only have nations been j
