Short rations, long marches and

the morning's exercises and the ca

audience that assembled. The hall
was decorated in the national and
class colors, the latter blue and or

scnncti ine class motto, "i-;sse juam

1 he exercises opened with the sing

Power of .lesus Name," after which
there was a scripture reading and
prayer by Kev. L. K. Johnston, of St

which led to his presence before the
audience, l lien ne tell to a compar
ison of the material advantages of
Iowa and Illinois in which he em
phasised the fact that Iowa excels in
corn, cattle, chickens ami cabinet
members. To Illinois, however, he
conceded an equality in the matter
For his subject Dr. McLean took
'Culture," and his discourse upon this
theme was finished, helpful and in
tensely interesting. First he told of
the misconception that had arisen as
to the real meaning of the word cul
ture through its application to the
craze for brie-n-ltrae ami atTectatioiis
f sqieeeh that emanated from Host on
some years ago. I his he showed was
entirely fallacious. although the
movement that led to the misunder
standing was imixirtant in lending to
better things. Kducatiou ami cul
ture, he demonstrated, are not one
ami the same by drawing a picture
of a man who loves lcarniuir for its
own sake and his soul shrivels and
dies through very narrowness. True
culture was defined as "sympathy
with intelligence," and under this uj
plieation was identified with that
which educators are coming more
and more to realize is their true mis
sion to impart to the human race.
After an exquisitely rendered song
by the ehaH-l c-hiir Dr. Andreen in
troduced Gov. Yates and the audience
rose in welcome. With characteristic
directness the governor announced
his subject as '"The Evolution of
Welcome to th Ktate Kxerutlv.
As leading up to the development o
that love of home and country that
we call patriotism, the governor
launched into a rapid review of the
evolution of the forms of government
of which history tells. In the first
stage, or that of the barbarians,
there was no love of any particular
pot and the submission to a chief
was or the same sort that herds of
animals accord to the most powerful
among their numler. Jn the despotic
governments erected following the
adoption of a tixcd alwde, patriotism
had its dawn, but it was of a sort
very different trom that or today
The patriotism of Greece and Komr
wan or an advanced type, but it was
not jxTiiianent. In the English gov
ernment the speaker saw the best
form of patriotism of the later mon
archies and therein was planted the
genu that has since come to its full
fruition in America. Itut (joy. Yates
did not end with the present. He le-
held a vision of it patriotism far le-
yond that of our own land at the
present day, a patriotism so perfect
that it can never yield to a ltetter and
must therefore exist forever. This he
believed would be the result of the
broadening and deepening if the
channels of human thought ami ac
tion through the agency of modern
Second to None la Induration.
Illinois is second to no common
wealth in America in educational ad
vancement and the governor ppokc
of the great responsibility that rests
upon Jiim us the political head of a
state that is exerting such a powerful
influence in a movement that shall
le world-wide ud endure forever. In
conclusion he addressed the class, ad-
ixing the member, to learn to apply
in lire tliat which they had . re
ceived in college.
