He spoke for more than an hour and his address was heartily enjoyed by his audience. He expressed his appreciation of the great privilege to speak on the spot so hallowed by the associations of the greatest of great men and the best of good men. The name of Washington is familiar on the other ? ide of tbe Pacific, and that of Gen? eral Lee is held in highest respect by a large number of Japanese, lt is a privilege, therefore, to be here on the very spot where General Lee lived. He assured the students tbat they enjoyed a rare privilege in being here where the surround? ings suggest the influence and character of tbis great man. Dr. Nitobe spoke at length on what is regarded as ancestor wor? ship in Japan, which he explained to be not the worship of the bones of their forbears, nor a superstitious adoration of the ghosts of the de? parted ancestors, but the belief that the spirits of their ancestors hov? ered around the living to guard, protect and influence. Tbe dead are di ve. and they should not be forgotten. This belief strengthened their soldiers in their late war aod made them almost invincible. When the present Emperor as? sumed the throne, he sent many bright young men to all civilized countries to study that they might return home" with knowledge from foreigners which should be adapted and used for the uplift of Japan. Publio schools were established and attendance made obligatory in the primary schools. In Japan 97 ptr cent, of children of school age are in the schools. Tbey have primary schoos. middlle schools, colleges and universities, in which arti taught many industrial occupations in addition to purely literary sub jects.
