Education implies something more
than cultivation of intellectual faculties
alone. It must develop, quicken and re
fine the whole being before its aims are
fully realized. To bo an educated man is
not simply to be a scientist, a historian, or
a philosopher, but to bo a true man, true
to self, true to humnnity, true to God.
Lot your educators remember that in cul
tivating the mind, at the expense of moral
character, tlioy build a beautiful palace
upon treacherous sand. Moral character
must underlie and give tons all t:ue edu

Prof. Olney, of Michigan University,
is strictly in favor of denominational col

tho influence they exort in creating aiul
keeping alive a public sentiment among
tho masses in favor of higher education
on account of the amount of work done,
the numbers educated on account of the
closeness of compact and more Intimate
relations which exist iu them between
teachers and pupils, and hence, of their
power to mould and develop character
