It seems to be the nucleus aroui^ which iiersistently cling a new advocated order of things, a new system, an inevitabte outgrowth of this present age. The eve of tbe Uth century approaching, a period of rapid change, at progress, of development. A hundred years ago to be a mau of one book was no disgraee; but in this age of steam presses and electrotype iKrint-ing aud the deluge of new publications thai must be skimmed by all who would keep abreast with tbe iuteliigence of tiie times, leaves no doubt that tbe elements of literature are swiftly acquiring a new utilitarian value. When we eon-sider that Germany alone prints 1S,000 books a year; that one library only—the National at Paris—contains 150,000 acres of printed p^^; that In one ramified science—chemistry—tbe student needs fourteen years, and in many Instances more, buely to overtake knowledge as it now stands, while nevertheless, tbe two lobes of tbe human brain are not a whit larger to-day than in the days of Adam; that even deducting all tbe books which the process of Invention and "natural selection" and the "survival of the fittest" spared us for reading. Is simidy appalling. This practical and I should ratbor say "tills easy work tendency" has ncA wittiln Itsdfa simply theoretical value; but a sure, an Inevitable cause, originating fnnn an undae atlmolus to tbe mental faculties of the youth of our country; which, we think, was never more alarming tbaa now. What constitutes practicality in education ought to be understood to be necessary uUUty but I shall endeavor to maintain that this idea of "practical branehes" and all this ay for a course of study which shall provide that whleh the child expects to use in after life, is too frequently false utilitarianism. Which would you name as the practical branehes or those adapted to the {nraetical pursuits of life? Busing Arithmetic may be taiii^t a boy ordinary ability In a few weeks at most. Beading and Writing he nu^ acquire in the primary and intermediate depart^nts; this may be supplemented by reading papers and books out of business hours. Aisinesslanguate be learns at home and on the streets. I can think of notliing else tiiat Is essential If we are seeking a practical short road. In education the nsef nlness of a stody Is not to be measured by Ito aTallabOlty for tbe badness purposes of life. biA soMy by Its fitaees to deveK «Hioreduaitetlie stodenfspowers.

In thougbto and langnaae as weO as In the arts and the pWuc-tlOB él arts, we are simply the children of the andante. What would our civilization be If the foltei llidc tbat binds togettier generstlons were borataaandffi? What Is civilization? Isittìiat much Indeed Is It otherwise, for civilization means progress. Can we snap the thread ttiat binds us with this parland of thought, with this indlspensible treasure. To be practical means to know. To know means progressive-nesa. Dispense with It, if you can! It is the Promethean torch to literature, without all are lifeless aud obscure; while its genial influence pervades and illumines the remotest regions of science. In this language Homer sung, Thucyd-Ides and Ztenophon gracefully recorded events, and Demosthenes thundered his orations from tbe arena, the greatest orator the world has ever known. In tbe words of Macaulay "From that splendid literature of Greece and Rome have sprang all the strength, the wisdom, the freedom and glory of the western world." I'bey stm speak to us in tbe very words which they chose for the dress of their undying thoughts. Shining thrciugb tlie darkness of the ages, they still remain stars of changeless and of une-qualed brilliancy. Seotlaud says "an harmonious mental culture tends to practical utility" and remains firm to her mental discipline. England has had reform, and to-day she must go to the snow-clad mountains of Seotland for her instruction to teach her refOTmed intelltgence. Again it has been demonstrated in an University in Germany that the classical scholars make better progress than those of the sciences, coming from different schools to this University. Their work is better, their grades are better, consequently we may Justly say tbat their mental discipline must have been much better. Yet you say banish Greek and Latin from our schools, colleges aud universities. Place the ckussics in exile and you rob civilization of one of its most potent factors, uid you will experiment upon a question tbat wni cost you dear. What Europe has been to the rest ot the worid, Greece and Rome have been to Europe. Mind culture we must have. do not mean tbe "Cramming" process. I do not mean tht "Pony" method, but I mean that culture essential to the successful pursuit of any buabiess. Tbat culture is essential, a requisite qnaUBeation of this crowding, busy and practical a^, In which this correct "put to use" theory Is the crowning effort of man's accomplish nento. someMilng that deprives itself of «me of its great-eat fMrtlllzers. of tiie law that has ctmie down to ns trom tbat band of historians, poets, philoso-or UtOe power, aoecHrding aa nature baa endowed.|. i^era. and orators, ttie cardinal elements of its blm. birt If be Is traly edueated, be win under aU dreumstances count for what be Is w<»tli. I think Mr. Bain Is incorrect wben he says *tbe lawyer ean obviously dispense with the elasslcs, but they hold a claim with reference to Latin doe to our Jurisprudence." I know I am Justified, and indeed can defend my positlma wtten I say, "to know the English language, means to know tbe Latin language; toknow the Latin language uMans to know the Gretk language; but here <rar utilitarianlst say stop; of what practical utility are the dead languages? It is an indlspensible utility and being Indispen-rible. It must entor largely Into tbe elmaents of a successful practical educatlun. An endless discusslmi of these diverging views has led men to feuful extremes, botiijMvand «OK, and tbe more intense tbe discussion, the greater divergence of opiniim. It thus appears that the harmony of the two is not likely soon to occur. In the flrrt place men have a great fear of overtaxing the brain, possessed by a spirit that makes effort nseless, and Indeed impractl-eaL Let us observe tbe mental discipline in tbe stody oi tbe classics, as a mode of progress. aflim, n<^ being of tbe old regime of theorists, that tbe classics must ever remain one of our great inogressive, civilizing factors. It Is a fundamental principle that the object of our edoeaUon Is not so much to give information as to exercise, develop, and discipline tbe mental faculUes, not to fit a man for one particular <»Uing,1>ut for any, not to cultivate one faculty at toe sacrifice of others; but to give a clear, vigorous, and active comprehension; a broad Intdlect, not simply to store up knowle^ but to arouse tiie desire for knowledge; for it must be remembered tbat a man has other duties to perform besides that of atrade or a profession. He must be adviser and director, not only of domestic and social, but also of ptditlcal pursuits. Now it Is evident that this education cannot be obtained by striving to acquire knowl-ed^, simply as knowledge; no amount ot knowledge can be acquired tbat will prepare one to handle successfully the great questions In life. Therefore a general culture Is needed to give harmony to the action of all the mental faculties. In fact a general cultivation of tbe whole intelllgenoe. The acquisition of all knowledge Is Impossible, and such branches must ttieref<He be pursued iriilcb is best calculated to bring about this barmmiious action of tbe faculties; (me that will best mould the Intellect, give mental discipline, the flrst requisite of all mental proness. To aeeomplish this end a laagua^ Is >est adapted. Now the imqiertles of tbeelaariaal tnatnietlon are first, f<Hr mental discipline; in exoeising and strengthening tbe xbmokt; in committing words and paradigms; In keeping and linking together tbe ebaln of thouf^t. It cultivate the JUDOXXXT in discerning and drawing Just conclusions In the thought It educates the axa-LYTioAL faculty In separating tbe sentences to meet tiie Bnglidi constmction; in compound words, in tracing words up to their roote; in phrases, each In Ite Immediate place. It develops the RXAaoK. It Is said "correct syntax Is the highest form of r«UM>n." It cultivates tbe imaoikatiox since the classics contain tbe highest and best models of Imaginative cultare. It gives precision to and cultivates the faculty of language ht the expression ot thought; the acquisition of a vocabulary, obtaining a manner of argumentation, constant practice of using tbe expresdons and composition of the classical scholars; we of symlxte In both ours uid the dead language; aids In fostering composition in our own tongue; a leading to the first principles of literary criticism; a thorough knowledge of ancient literature; It even keeps in view the growth ot a high moral culture; devdo^ent of tbe power to make use of facto for tbe classical tanfl^iage Is hot the gateway to tbe classical mind. Purthennore, our tongue cannot be well understood, without classical attainments, since ita foundation are the dead languages, the same with the German, the French, and Indeed many other languages of less Importance. Says tbe Edlngburg Bevlew: "If tbe knowledge of the dead language among the classes was lost. It wmild beocMne a strange collection of inexpressive symbols. Hiey cannot be replaced by living languages for the very fact of being easily acquired disqualifies them. They can be tangbt orally, while the classics cannot, and oral Instruction falls far short of the mental disdpUe. than the laborious process empkiysd In classical instractton. In tlmt mental dIscipUne and develoinnentare only tbe result ot effort, and yon dImlnM that effort and yon diminish and Impair tbe mental culture. Bia you may aak Is this praetlcal? Yesl let me continue.
