However much one may doubt the stories of eea serpents, there are probably far bigger fish in the sea than ever come out of It; and as for plant life, it has been con clusively proved that Bea trees 1,500 feet in height are quite common in the ocean. These monster trees are & kind of brown seaweed, the upper most branches being only about a quarter of an inch in thickness. Countless bladders, like miniature balloons, and about as big as a hen's egg, form among the branches of the tree, and, being filled with air, buoy up the trunk and branches so that they grow almost erect. Mam moth sea animals often build their nests in these trees, as they giTe off several degrees of heat, which makes the surrounding water comparatively warm. Exchange.

The "quintana (via)" was a street in the Roman camp so called because it came between the fifth maniple, or company, and the sixth. Here all the business and marketing of the camp was done and "quintana" eventualiv fame to mean a market. HE most notable tendency as yet in recent higher educa tional development in America is toward SCIENTIFIC and technological study, -with a specialization always grow ing more precise, if not also more narrow, in reference to the student's INTENDED PURSUITS in life. , It has recently been said by authorities entitled to respect that ''the American schools have not made the people what they are, but that the people, BEING WHAT THEY" ARE, have made tho schools," and that therefore "American efficiency is not due to Ameri can education." This seems to me to tend toward a considerable mis conception, which, if accepted, would make our scientific schools of less interest. The truth is that from the feeble beginnings at James town and Plymouth the two essentials of every settlement, of every; isolated pioneer post in the wilderness, were A CHURCH AND A SCHOOLHOUSE. Those two, working on the race history and the race instinct, molded the people in their wild surroundings. Those two, with the demands and opportunities of a new country, have "made the people what they are," and are now converting millions of foreign, immigrants into something similar. If there is such a thing, then, as "American efficiency" it is due to those influences, and of them all the MOST PERVASIVE AND EFFECTIVE has been the American; school. In the enormous development since the civil war it was tho American scientific school or technological or technical OR TRADE SCHOOL. The tendency in this direction began in the colleges. Then as the specialization demanded by modern industry became more minute it called for greater facilities than the colleges afforded, till now we have independent technological schools that are ALMOST UNIVERSI TIES IN THEMSELVES, and others that are the most popular parts of the universities to which they belong. nun . WHAT GOOD DOES THIS TECHNOLOGICAL EDUCA TION DO ? Are the graduates from sucirinstitutions spoiled for the PRACTICAL BUSINESS OF LIFE or helped in it? Well, the old est of these institutions in the United States and, indoed, the oldest of its kind in any English speaking country is the Rensselaer Polytechnic, founded in 1824. A list made up a few years ago showed that of ita graduates 892 were then living. Of these sixty were presidents of either railway companies, steel and iron works, bridge companies, wa terworks, electric companies, mining companies, sewerage systems or canal companies ; 185 of them were vice presidents, managers or super intendents, and 100 WERE CHIEF ENGINEERS. I should perhaps refer to the thought, beginning to be expressed by some of our educators, that all this scientific and technological teaching may be carried too far for the best interests of the rising gen eration. One of them recently said, "It may perhaps now be a defect in American education that we rate our Edisons higher than our Em ersons." On this point let me say at once for myself, without a shade of depreciation for our Edisons, that in my belief the time can never come in the most highly civilized communities ,WHEN SPIRITUAL THINGS WILL NOT OUTWEIGH THOSE MERELY MA TERIAL. H Still one will scarcely think American devotion to science and its practical applications unnatural when one considers the needs of the country, or unprofitable when one considers its phenomenal success, BUT THE FEELING IS FOR MORE LIBERAL STUDIES AS A PRELIMINARY TO THOSE IN THE TECHNOLOGICAL SCHOOL, AND FOR WIDER INTERESTS THROUGH LIFE, SOUNDED IN THE PHRASE OF A RECENT EDUCATIONAL SPEAKER, WHO HELD IT A SORRY EPITAPH FOR ANY ONE THAT HE WAS BORN A MAN AND DIED AN ENGINEER
