Mathematics and metaphysics, sci
ence and the languages, charactemtical--ly
feed the mind. " '
Who has not observed the peculiari
ties of a mathematician ? Accurate and
methodical, exact and logical, he walks,
thinks and talks by formulas to him
clearly demonstrable. If only schooled
in other departments, the mind lacks
confidence, order and symmetry. The
unvarying laws, the exact formulas
and the axiomatic truths of mathe
matics give solidity to thought and
Doubt and seeming confusion the
student finds in other fields. In Alge
bra, Geometry and Calculus he is satis
fied with certainties. Light and sound
conform to mathematical formulas.
Planets and stars, even the wander
ing comets, unwearyingly follow orbits
traced by mathematicians a thousand
years in advance. What triumph,
what confidence does the astronomer
feel as he Bees the sun obscured at j
the moment predicted long before by
him. Can any fail then, to acknowl
edge the importance of studying mathe
matics? What though not to be an
accountant or a surveyor, there ar
manly nnd womanly qualities det el
oped in the mind, yea, inwiought into
the very character by pursuing a full
course in mathematics.
As an exclusive diet I cannot recom
mend mathematical htudie-s. Tho stu
dent becomes dissatisfied with any oth
er forms of proof, treats with contempt
philosophical inquiries, is too unvary
ing to be popular or even happy in
this world of human frailties. No
true educator will encourage an un
mixed course in mathematics. But he
will confidentlv recommend a liberal
training in them.
It is carbon that gives solidity to
woody fibers. If you would give firm
ness and reliability to manhood, even
like oak which is rich in carbon, then
spend much time with a good professor
of mathematics. If a school would
send forth fiom its halls capable, relia
ble men and women, let its course in
mathematics ba kept up to the good old
standard, and pander not to tho puer
ile cry for sweetmeats.
In our college the trustees after
electing a President who is professor
of mental and moral science, proceeded
at once to elect n solid professor in
mathematics. Well, and wisely done.
The Atudy of Mental Philosophy and
kindred hranchos denominated nieta-
physics, furnishes rich and wholesomeal
intents for the soul's nourishment. As
there are seasons when the body requires
lal kinds ot tood; so may we prc-
for our ago the study of mental
ce, as being 'jreatly needed to cor-
abuormal tendencies. Tho age of
k would have been greatly improv
ed by a more cenoral sturswf tho
Physical of the material. flHK
lwtve vibrated to the other extreme;
and we are in danger of becoming
materialists. We aro using the cru
cible and blow-pipe; but conciousness
is, as it were a sense as reliable as
those of sight and touch. Let us look
inward as well as outward. There are
intuitions as well as sensations. The
world within is as real as the world
without. The data furnished by con
sciousness are as reliable, yea even
more trustworthy, than tho acknowl
edged revelations of sense. So aston
ishing have been the discoveries of the
presentcentury in chemistry, physic-sand
geology, in fact in the whole realm of the
material; so busy havo wo been keptby
the Telescope, the Locomotive, the
Microscope and the Telegraph all new
and wonderful instruments, that the
soul's knowledge of itself, the eye of
consciousness, and the clear voice of
Intuition have been neglected and well
nigh forgotten. Sciences, things
known classified, are a possible
through these sources as through the
five senses. Psycology, Logic, Ethics
and Esthetics areas worthy of study as
Physiology, Chemistry and Geology.
We repeat, the modern, mind needs
specially to turn its eye inward. Com
pleter, healthier, divjneij vietwa of life
and being would thus ba. attained.
We question whether it isrpsbjble or
one who has thoroughly studied men
tal Philosophy to ever b?come a ma
terialist. Self examination becomes
habitual, personal liberty and respon
sibility become, as truths, unquestion
able. The soul's spirituality and immor
tality are clearly apprehended and
firmly believed Metaphysics should be
restored to their former honored place
in our Colleges and Universities.
Nor are we less enthusiastic in fa
voring the study of National Science
Matter is potential with irresponsible
power. "In the beginning God created
the heavens and tho earth," aud "He
hath made his wonderful works to be
remembered." The discerninjr eyo, the
i3Mrritg:car,v tiie delicate touch are ac
qu-d by using- these senses. What
foocV for the imagination do Geol
ogy and Astronomy supply. What a
hmitle&s, world of wonders does Bot
any reveal. The understanding and
judgment find delightful employmentin
tracing the wise desigus and wonder
ful works of God revealed in Zoology,
Chemistry and Natural Philosophy.
The study of these sciences gives whole
some food for the growing mind. As
there are few who fail to acknowledge
the utility of a general study of these
branchps, we. do not pause to illustrale
further their uses. Ashland College
Uvill provide for tho practical study of
Statural sciences. Lower and lower

Higher climb into its royal chambers
and beneath its sweeping archways.
No student should allow any thought
of closing school days to enter the
mind until the leading modern sciences
have been studied. Wonderful discov
eries have been and aro being made
in these fields. They aro made the
subject of every day's conversation.

leads to tho conviction that no branch
es of the usual college curriculum are
mor proGtablo than theso commonly
called the classics. Is not speech one
of man's distinctive giftsl What pow
er, what worth, what grace is there in
language! It is the suspension bridge
which spans the abyss separating hu
man souls. Over it trains of thought
rapidly and safely pass. Innumerable
are the strands which compose it.
Wonderful and sublime is its mcchan
anism. To be able to speak with
grace, fluency nnd force is a gift,
rather an attainment, peerless antl
priceless. To acquire if it be a clrs.io

other languages do as well as Greek
and Latin? Wo ask in return why are
Shakespear and Milton preferred as
English poetsl Among this thousands
who havo written poetry, those two
are unequaled. So no Languages have
reached that perfection of art, of beau
ty, and power, that the Greek and Lat
in possess. Anu n it be a sublime, a
worthy art to express on canvass our
conceptions of truth and beauty, why
rank that wonderous power of com
municating our feeling, ideas and pur
poses to the souls of others by s,ound,
as worthy of study? If Geology may
be pursued with great profit, and some
opposcnt of classic studies aro very
enthusiastic in its favor; if our rap
ture.', at finding the petrified remains
of some antedeluvian reptile, be a sign
of a scientific taste; why be so disgust
ed with those who think it equally
profitable to study tho history of man,
of immortal mind, as written in the
imperishable languages of the ancient
world. If it be a practical study,
a good mwri ff discipline, to trace
the forms of extinct FpeVus of animals
and reptiles in crumblingrocks upheav
ed from their deep graves by volcanic
fires, why is it less profitable and inspi
ring to gaze uion the gigantic thoughts
of ancient orators, poets and philoso
phers, who lived when there were
giants in the earth?
All who have ever tried it know
that it pays to geologize in the roman
tic glens and among the lofty moun
tain peaks of the ancient classics. And
as a means of discipline, mathematics
and the languages stand side by side,
and should .thus be .studied. They both
improve the memory, form habit of
patient investigation, and enable the
student to command tho attention,
give strength nnd vigor to thoreasoning
powers and mature the taste. In trans
lating the student is compelled to ob
tain the root ideas of the words, to
note minute shades of meaning. He
becomes used, also, to studying lan
guage, to reading slowly and weighing
carefully every sentence; a habit neces
sary to understand and enjoy our best
English authors. How poticable is
the fact that these opposers of classic
al studies aro generally also opposed
to all dry reading. Butler's Analogy
Bacon's Essavs. are worse than Greek
to them. Light literature, books

the study of Latin and Groek.

especially when English Grammar and
Rli3toric aro constantly referred to.
There is no danger of losing ones
love of Anglo-Saxon in this compar
ative study of languages. When the
pupl finds that he is able to express
clearly and accurately every fact and
shade of thought in plain beautiful
English, he begins to glory in that
language as the one worthy of being
vet the worlds vernacular. Thorough
Treatises on Law, Medicine, Philosophy,
Theology, Poetry nnd Commerce can
be written in English. That Ian
guage has more and better words than
any other; and to thoroughly master it
should be ono of the prominent objects
of education. While this manifest
duty is acknowledged, classics and
modern languages will be retained as
essentials in "very thorough course of
instruction, siucu in studying them a
thorough knowledge and uso of En
glish will be acquired.
It is safer to rely exclusively upon
almost any other branch of education
rather than upon music. lo bo whol
ly wedded to melody leaves manhood
and oven womanhood without due aup
port. Painting and drawing are al
most equally defective. As attendants
and companion studies they are highly
meritorious. They cultivate, refine,
adorn. Not our young ladies only,
but our young men need music and
tho fine arts, not as a foundation, nor
as the chief material for building, but
to complete nnd bemtify the structure.
Home and heart and head are benefit

joys increased, how is truth impressed.

The study of Astronomy gives a

So does Drawing give new delights,
