Principal of the Lowell Textile School
HE fact that sciences and mathematics were so late in devel = t
oping makes it clear to see why the classics and sQ called cul
ture studies received so large an amount of attention in
the curricula of the earnest schools and colleges Today i
we recognize in the sciences means for the very best medial
development and also means for supplying the wants to
say nothing of the luxuries of everyday life There never
was a time in the history of the world when the development
of technical studies was carried to such an extent as now
and in these same studies there is the foundation of nearly
all that conduces to our material welfare I
In motive powers we tind that the waterfall was one of the earliest
forces to be harnessed and that even to this day it forms an important I
source of power There was a time when the water wheel was falling
rather into disuse except upon streams and water courses which were f
very near the point where the power was used and that by the develop
ment of electrical machinery with what science has taught in the matter
if insulating electrical conductors it is now possible to use the remote
waterfall and transmit its energy to a distant point where it may be used
profitably For over a century steam has been of great importanccand
still holds a foremost lace but the development of the reciprocating
steam engine itself has been most remarkable Heros uigine known to 1
antiquity was but a toy up to within a decade yet today the steam tur i i
bine is attracting the attention of our leading engineers and users of I
large amounts of power such as our electric light corporations and trac I
lion companies are using this new machine to drive the generators i
From Franklins kite and key to the modern electric automobile i 1
rolling smoothly along the road is a long step and again we owe it to
science that the development of the electric current has made this possiI
isle Then there is our means for signalling and transmitting thought
from continent to continent by means of the cable there is the tele
graph for land there is the telephone i there is the modern system of i
fubmarine signalling whereby a ship may locate at a distance of sev I
eral miles the position of a shoal marked by a submarine bellto say
pothing of the means by which we signal without conductors making
Use of the higher wave vibrationsI
We arc completing more brdgc every year longer in span and
rapable of carrying greater loads than ever before and we are burrow
Ing under the earth and under the harbors to secure quicker and mon
direct communication between the different sections of our cities Land
is becoming more valuable and where once as the height of the build
ing increased so we increased the thickness of the wall to carry the
added load now we change the construction of our buildings so that
we may waste as little as possible of the land and yet carry our buildings
higher Where once we were well satisfied with the several chemicals
of nature or those which required but a comparatively small amount
of manipulation now we are making synthetically a purer and cheaper
chemical than we once obtained directly from nature
Once tllgskins of animals served man as clothing but now the
highest skill is commanded to produce for him fabrics varied in texture
and ornamented to please his eye and the textile industries alone
demand the services of those skilled and trained in designing harmony
Qf color mechanics heat light electricity and chemistry It is a fact
worthy of note that most of the dyestuffs of the present time arc bypro
ducts of gas works coming from the oils carried by the coal tar being
made serviceable for the dyer and printer by the chemist The indigo
plantations in India have been seriously affected by the production of
artificial indigo this being made from the coal tar and requiring the
services of trained chemists
Through all the example cited it is to be seen that an increasing
number of technically trajned men is demanded by the industries and
as new applications of the forces of nature are made opportunity for
advancement is offered to those who arc willing to apply themselves to
the solution of the problems involved If there were no more to do
than replace woniout or broken constructions these fields would have
little interest but it is the fresh developments that add fresh interest
and these applications demand the very best energies that a man can

Are we sovereign
There is onlone realm
where man is sovereign
completely and that is
in the realm of morals
A man is king eternal
over his own actions If
not there is no excuse
In politics men are slaves We talk of complete sovereignty but it
is not so Everything is cut and dried even before the primary The
leaders lead us The only thing is to be led and not know it And yet
we think we arc kings ri
But I turn again to the dictum Every man is a king If he dots
not wish to exercise authority over self then he must suffer I
To say drunkenness is a disease is sheer nonsense Men would like
to have all sin disease Death comes from sin and yet it is not disease in
the true sense of the word Men love sin better th in sovereignty Let
us be kings then in the fullest sense of the word We can bo we ought
to be There is no throne so big as a pure manhood We can in it sitI
and rule self Will we do it or not Let us be up and doing at once
ere it is too late Kings are we Gods kings Thrones we have Let
us reign

I IThl teacher to whom

Ability we respect How is it possible to satisfy the conscience if a policy
other than this prevails Is there anything more precious than the child
whether viewed from the point of view of the family or the state Is
not his training a thing of preeminent importance And yet we are
willing to pay to his teacher a salary far less than is paid in many cases
to the keeper of our horses or to the keeper of our cattle
Who cannot sec the utter absurdity of this The teachei every

sin wherewith he made Israel to sin to I

Ala king of Judah began Ahab the Ion of
Omrl to reign over Israel and Ahab the
Ion of Omrl reigned over asset In Samaria I
twenty and two years

king of the Uonlnnj and went and wrvul
Haul and worshiped him I
K And he reared up an altar for heal in
the house of Haul which he had built In I

did more to provoke the Lord God of Israel
to anger than all tho kings of Israel that i

Ahab did evil In the sight of the
Lord above all that were before him
There were two reasons for this his
wicked father and his most wicked i
wife It Is said that a wife makes or mars
a man Ruin came to Israel again and
again through matrimonial alliances
See Josh 2312 13 Neb 2313 23 29i
Even Solomon made shipwreck In this I
way 1 Kings 1115 and Ichostmphat i
fell Into this snare later See 2 Chron
216 I
Jezebel the daughter of tho Zldonlan
king was utterly given to the devil
She lkwas who brought all the licen
tiousness connected with the worship
of Baal airil Ashteroth The connection
between the Indulgence of Impurity and
the declension of the spiritual life Is
very close In Ilomans 1 Paul tells us
that men that refuse to retain God In
their knowledge are given up to the
workings of passion They lose the
sweet clear Impression of the truth and
nearness of tho Christ Do pure
Reared up an altar for DaalTho
sun was worshiped under various Im
ages Reference IB made to tho one set
up by Ahab In 2 Kings 32 The priests
officiated barefoot and dancing and kiss
ling the Image were among the chief
rites From pasglrc share In the wor
ship of Baal ho quickly passed to tho
active participation and lent his ener
glen and kingly wealth and Influence to
establish and spread this abominable
heathen worship
Seed Thoughts
Sin like noxious weeds Is a rapid
grower and prolific seed producer
God sees evil when man is blind to it
o rim I and Ahab may have been winning
the approval and applause of their pea
pIe while they were Incurring the con
demnation of Cod
A fair face may mask a wicked heart
Many a Iran has been captivated by the
first only to find disaster and ruin
through the influence of tho second A
bud woman Is always worse than a bad
man because woman Is cast In a finer
mold and more readily runs to ox
treme goodness or extreme badness

Dire Results of n Physicians Advice
The following illustration of bad ad
vice In tho lecture roods Is probably not
an exceptional case A professor of
motorla medica lecturing on cocaine
called It one of tho greatest of all stim
ulants and perfectly harmless Ho cited
his own experience of Its good effects
and advised the does to personally test
It In debility and exhaustion Of a
class of 32 who listened to tills advice
five became cocaine takers within two
years Ten years later 13 of this class
were drug and spirit takers In all
probability the use of cocaine was the
starting point of their addictions Four
died from the direct UEO of this drug
Evidently more than half of tho class
bad followed the advice of the teacher
and were wrecked A few years after
the professor became ail Invalid and
