Tho auditorium wns soon filled with students, sprinkling nmong whom wore n good number of citizens. Ho was presented to tho nudlcnco by Dr. Mezes, who said tho colonel as too well known to be ntrodnced. On taking tho Btand, Colonel Ilrynn playfully remarked that ho was noti fied on his arrival that ho would bo expected to deliver a brlof lecture to tho students of tho university. "I havo tho reputation." ho sald'of novor missing an opportunity of mak ing a, spet h, bo I suspect I wns In- Ited to tnlk more for the pleasure it would afford mJTthan for any benefit It would bo to you. I will uso the time in nn effort to develop a thought that has been In my mind a grcnt deal recently, with tho hope that tho dovolopment will Inspire you students with higher Ideals In life. After tho Inst presidential election I became, a llttlo suspicion Hint a mnjorlty of tho people of tho United States did not llko tny political speeches, so In cast Ing about for a subject upon which to tnlk when called on, I ncldentnlly stumbled on tho word 'civilization;' tho word suggests a branch of phllos ophy with which I wns not very fn- mlllnr ami my Investigations convinc ed mo that other peoplo know as llt tlo about it as mysolf. In my oxtrem ify I turned to the 'llctionnry to Jonm what 'civilize' monnt nnd found it do nned, 'to Instruct in clvllltnton;' turn lv K tho word 'clvillntinn,' I found it donned, 'being In n civilized stnto, None or these definitions suited mo, o I denned t to bo tho harmonious do volopment of man, momlly, mentnlly nnd in body. In the development of this bit of phllonophy let mo say, young gentlemen, tho declhio nnd de cay of every nation Iu history hnB been brought about by tho fnlluro of tlint j defined it to bo tho Imnnonlons d velopment Iu Its citizenship. As with nations, m) with Individuals, tho units or society. This doctrine must bo ml bored to thoroforo by nations nnd In d'vidunls, if a hlgi typo of nianhon.: Is produced, nnd ovory citizen enn bring his contribution to accomplish this end. The best menus of bringing nbout n higher degreo or tho right kind or civilization Is to render some service to Immunity, and theu becomo inter ested in tholr improvement. Why Is mo force, but work in love. If you earthly ties? It Is becauso bIio ron dcrs more service to that child than to any other object In all tho world Itendor Bomo sorvlco to tho world, nnd you nt onco becomo interested In tho improvement of tho world. Do not nelg.,.ors mink an-l ast a i i j. the start out with a club to mnko your neighbors think and act as you do, tho chances aro 10 to 1 that you will get clubbed yourself and fall In your ef forts. . ., "Educntion Is thtt-bcst. way to pro pare to render this service. 1M know that my boy ..was dcstlnod - to spend all his days ditching, I would ilnslst on his educntion, bocnuso when tho day' rk - done instoa- if liuicinli.-K around on tho streets hunting social recreation, he could romalu at homo with a, cultivated mind for a compan ion. "I respect tho plutocracy of wealth, ndmlro tho aristocracy of mind. ' thank God for tho democracy of heart that inspires man to perform hoi vice for tho masses of tho people." Colonel Hryan continued his re marks along this lino for a hnlf hour and closed with an eloquont appeal to tho students of tho uulvorsity to itnprovo the opportunities they were enjoying In a "great and growing in stitution of learning, in tho great and growing state, and prepare themselves to render somo helpful service to tho struggling peoplo of tho world."
