south wing of the hotel building but the exact cause has not yet been ascertained The general theory is that a defective flue is responsible for the fire The building was as dry as tinder and a high wind which was sweeping across the mountain from the west quickly carried the flames the entire length of the building and the struc tine was consumed in a very short time Froth the city the fire was a spectacular one during its early progress but soon the mountain was entirely enveloped in a dense cloud of smoke and all that could be seen from high points in the city was what appeared as a terrible storm cloud rolling from the southwest With the coming of darkness however the smake cleared and the crest of old Lookout was marked by x rim of red fire with the downward mark resembling a huge figure 9 The hotel was completed in 1889 and contained about 400 rooms Each succeeding year following its opening it has been visited by persons of liMe from all over the world Prince Henry of

enlightenment and the vat anu varied improve ment in was of diug things in this advancing age educational ideasI and methods had remained standstill They that have not is ussionIby a criticism almost destructive iu its extent of things as they are While the institution known af the American college has maintained its high standing in public esteem as a place for general training of the powers and the teaching 01 the humanities there have not been licking those who insist it is super goodIit It is insisted that as a iule the four college years are so much time wasted and that the young should pass diregtly from high schools into active lile c r to pro fessional training Harry A Gar field in his recent address when inaugurated as President of WIl- liams College took up the question his subject being What is the Chief End of the American College and incidentally whether that end justifies its continuance The high standing of the college the presence of the most notable gathering of college instructors ever brought together in this country and Mr Garfields success as a teacher at Princeton give special interest to the addless He begins by asserting that the existence of the college can b justified not as has been generall believed by its relation to preparatory and professional hools but by its end or object and the degree to which it fulfills them He believes that the charge of vagueness brought against the American college is in part at least well founded and contrasts the vague ness of aim and consequent idleness often found there with the hard work and distinct purpose of pro fessional schools What is needed he says is an object that willa peal to every student whatever his life work is to be This object must meet the requirements of the times without sacrificing the rich heritage of the past It must quicken and inspire men to new and higher conceptions of life with out rendering them less but rather more efficient members of society Such an object is expressed by the word citizenship Americas greatest need is that the men and women of the United States com prehend all that citizenship imports and live up to its obligations Hence I venture to assert that the chief end of the American college is to train citizens to citizenship- He JJ then goes on to state what citizenship is andwhat its requirements are and continues- A nation will be great and strong whose citizens bound together by common traditions in spired by high ideals match for ward with eager and steady tread toward a goal which ever i ad vancing To attain to that stau dard requires long d anpatient effort for it means that the vast majority must be brought up to the highest level of welltrained higliminded efficient manhood More specifically it means that citizens must be trained to easy controle of theit mental faculties as well as of their oodily power trained to distinguish between scientifically determined facts and loosely reasoned opinions to dis criminate between things and conditions of varying value to be zealous in everything that makes for the advancement and welfare of the whole body it means that the vast majority must be keen to know constant in service quick to sacrifice their own for the common good possessed ofa sympathetic understanding of all sorts and conditions of men and not merely of those of the particular class with which each works and plays it means that the majority must come at last to realise that a uations highest welfare is somehow and always inextricably a part of the highest welfare of mankind every
