That \mericans are becoming aware of the fact that they have a historv is a matter of frequent observation and remark among writers and men of aﬂ'airs generally. It was one of the changes in American thought considered worthv of especial note hv Hon. James llrvce, on his recent visit to this country after an absence of twentv-iive vears. This keen student of American institutions thus expresses the result of his observation: Reverence for the past and a desire to maintain every sort of connection with it is a strong and growing force among educated people. L°'ttrtlierinore, this is one of the hopeful signs of the times. Well it is, for the nation as for the individual. When its career is anchored at both ends.

Such a nation or individual holds true in the course of best ideals and en deavors. Is in the line of progress of the greater destiny.
