THE EVOLUTION OF THE RACE WAS
BY RIGOROUS FIGHTING.
Vrom the Unthinking Animal Man Has
Slowly Evolved In His Search For food
Until lie Has Uecome the Familiar Cap
italist of Today.
Every seat in Huntington hall was occu
pied at the fourth lecture by Professor
Drummond on the "Evolution of Man" iu
the Lowell institute course.
Professor Drummond's subject was, "The
Struggle For Life." He said:
"The first great struggle was to get man
started on his upward journey. The inertia
of things is such that without compulsion
they will not move of themselves. The
whole world moves, and therefore every
thing in the world must move.
"A man eats food in the morning, but he
must soon move to get more. The sun
moves to the west, the wild animals move
about, and the man moves away for safety.
"The first law of evolution is the law of
motion. Man's body is a quivering mass
of earthen leaven. It is always on the verge
of something else. It is like a house built
on cards. A shock, friction, wind or fire
affects it strongly.
"A single movement of any part of the
body draws new energy to it. Man walks,
and muscles are made and developed. In a
child there is a constant building up in an
old man a constant repairing.
"Under the stimulus of competition man
goes on to an advancing improvement.
Take him at the time when he was Mr.
Darwin's 4-f ootid quadruped, and he wasn't
a very vigorous animal, and so as he coulda't
do much with his body he called something
else into action the mind and the quad
ruped took a club to help him in his strug
gle for life.
"To use a club the animal must stand
erect, and so it has continued until we
have the well developed, erect man of to
day. "To prove that this erect position is un
natural, take a baby when it is born, and
It ia quadruped, and for the first months
the uapy goes on all fours. Then also see
how a man always wants to sit down.
"The next stage after an invention is to
improve upon it or to further its useful
ness. After taking the club roughly torn
from the tree one was found one day with
a point, and that was appreciated, aud the
clubs were sharpened by rubbing tbem
against rough stones, and in that way the
spear came into use.
"Then the man that could throw his spear
the farthest was the most successful in war,
and so other power was called into service,
and the sling came into use.
"Today we have gunpowder and dyna
mite to do this same service, and thus the
struggle for life has gone on. It is not mere
accident; it is the predestined evolution of
"Digging In the soil for mollusks and
bulbs suggested agriculture. By catching
at first the young or wild animals and keep
ing them for their flesh and milk the ad
vantage of domestic animals was shown.
"Man slowly passed from the animal to
the savage. The sense of power grew strong
er and with it the sense of virtue.
"Now he subjugates other animals and
other men and takes to himself the best of
the earth. The struggle of life is called
war. War to evolution is not simply war
fare, but the means of developing man.
War is the foster mother of civilization, the
educator of the racea. It created a larger
sphere for the individual.
"Each community is governed by the law
of self preservation, and so it is forced to
fight for sufficient food with which to feed
itself, and so occurred the struggles for. the
most fertile lands, the best game reserve
and the beet fishing waters. That is war.
"Primitive man was a selfish man. He
was so of necessity. He lived alone and for
himself. Primitive man looked out for
"A war combination made him think of
100 instead of one. He didn't stop thinking
of himself, but be slowly began to think of
others. Number two was his wife. Three,
four und five were his children. After
learning to bear with these, he learned to
bear with others.
"The struggle for life is as irresistible a
stimulus as life itself. The man must
"It is evolution or death. And among all
the struggles some man will once in awhile
perform a noble, self forgetful deed, and
that deed seen by others will never be for
gotten, and as it is talked of around the
campCre the love of heroism grows and
"From the struggles of tribes and com
munities emerges the nation. Then comes
"An isolated man could not live in a s;iv
age country. Either he would be forced to
unite with a trilie or he would be killed. In
all the explorations of Africa not a single
isolated savage has ever been found. He
must iH-kmg to a tribe.
"He cannot leave it. If the tribe fights,
he must fight. Xo man by the mere con
struction of the world liveth to himself.
"It is absurd to say that man evolved
himself. As well might one say that a book
printed itself. It was impossible for the
savage to keep out of nature's machine, and
once in the machine to keep from being
molded by it.
"The savage went in the machine and
came out the man.
"The struggle for life is only one factor
in evolution. Science did not invent the
struggle for life; it only showed its great
moral value. The other "name for this
struggle is called the survival of the fittest.
If this is to be a good world, the bad must
be eliminated or transformed. The law of
the survival of the fittest demands tbut ev
ery man and every animal shall live its
best. No better law was ever evolved.
"Hefore science was born nature had
termed the struggle of life war. The first
Bcience was of war, the first industry that
of war, the first music that of celebrating a
victory in war, and the first religion taught
trust in the god of war.
"Peace and the vices of civil Life only
flourish together. But H is here that the
student of history is iu danger of going off
the rail. It is possible to believe that all is
now to go on peacefully. This is wrong.
But nothing can justify war today among
"The struggle of life, however, must still
go on. The social struggle is now going on.
Instead of the struggle for bread, the strug
gle is for money with which to liy bread,
and these struggles result in making man
better." Boston Herald.

Street Cleaning In I'aris. .
Some interesting facts have just been
published about street cleaning in Paris.
The annual cost is 1.730,000. The service
is divided into four sections the purchase
and care of the material; the administra
tion of thecantonniers; the watering of the
streets; the removal of the mud, stone and
garbage. The total surface which has to
be swept daily is about 15,500,000 square
yards, of which about 0,000,000 is paid for
by house owners with the sweeping tax.
The remainder i paid for from the city
funds. The 6tret-t sweepers are spread over
Paris in 149 ateliers, each of which consists
of a staff of 20 or 3 men and women under
the command of a chef and a chef adjoint.
The total staff of regulars is 3,2uo. Work
commences at 4 o'clock in the morning
and is completed at the same hour in the
afternoon. Among the disinfectants usexl
and lilierally applied every morning are
sulphate of iron, phenic acid and chloride

Between 3S0 aud 276 B. C. Aristotle, "the
Stagirite," observed an occultation of Mars

by measuring au arc of the meridian. It
seems strange that such experiments as
this last should have been successfully car

I have reason to believe that the 330,000
which 1 mentioned last week as having been
puid for the Cliveden estate by Mr. Astor to
the Duke of Westminster was the sum
which his grace asked aud not the amount
which he eventually accepted. I am given
to understand that the figure at which the
deal was actually effected was 300,000. It
is said thut the relations and tric-nds of the
duke are not at all pleased that his grace

Since the first ball of the Patriarchs, ar
ranged by Ward McAllister in 1ST2, those
"American aristocrats" have expended for
their annual entertainments of the beau

means an assessment of 125 for each ball

Imugine the bliss for women if they could
go in ami order a gown and then go back
and have it fitted once or twice and M-nt

with a certain class of women (and a large

those of the weaker sex who fondly imagine
that they have brains and would like to
