Rev. A. O. Carman of tho M. E.
church gave tho address and his very
excellent and appropriate remarks
were based on tho text found in Psalms
:i7:.T7, Mark the perfect man and be
hold the upright; out of which he took
his subject: The Ideal Man, and di
vided it under three heads, Physical
Man, Intellectual Man and Moral Man.
To mark a perfect man, he said, we
must behold him as a physical, intel
lectual and moral being.
In referring to the Physical man be
spoke of tho sacred ness of the body, it
being tho temple of tho Holy Ghost,
and of the necessity of carefully guard
ing it against the encroachments of
evil habits; of giving it the benefit of
scientific care and hard discipline for
its perfect development.
Behold the Intellectual man! True
scholarship is the seeking for know
ledge with the exclusion of self con
sciousness. Re interpreted th
perfect "A high ideal." The term
scholar may apply to the little child;
it may apply to tho mature power of
tho man of four score to whom has
come the knowledge of many schools
and great libraries and the gamerings
oi a lite time of study and investiga
tion. Mr. Caiman discussed tho law
of development along this line and
brought out many good points and
illustrations. Paul's motto was, This
one thing I do," not dividing his ener
gies but throwing his whole life into
one absorbing ambition and so turned
back tho tide of paganism. "To con
quer the world," ys Alexander, and
he stands before you, not as a man of
lofty ideals or of moral worth but as a
billiant military chieftain. "Any
thing for money," and Jay Gould Is
the incarnation of successful greed.
Mark the Moral man. What is char-
aeterr it our moral worth. Charac
ter is broader than intellect, broader
than will, broader than heart even.
It is the outcome of them all combined.
Schools which aim at nothing higher
than scholarship place the mark dan
gerously low. The purpose of all our
school agencies should bo to secure not
ability but nobility. A man may gain
scholarship and still have a shriveled
lite; he may have a mighty brain and
still have a feeble heart. Equip a
man with the enginery of the tremen
duous power of execution, yet leave him
consciousless and he is rudderless with
shipwreck and disaster as his inevita
ble doom. Re brought out the thought
i.ry neauuiuuy that in the age of
science and achievements wo are reap
ing tho benefits of hundreds of years of
thinking and planning and invention,
that the ancients and people of the
middle ages in many lines of human
thought and achievement surpassed
those of today, but that their retro
grading wheel amoug them was not
their intellects but their morals. Tow
ering as intellectual giants, they floun
dered and fell in their moral rorrun.
