The speaker said Strlndbers pitted his
opinions against those of hla parents
when ha was so young as to be Incapable
j, of logical opinion. Later In life ho was
? for years completely deranged. "When he
.. wanted to prove or disprove theory,"
saiil the professor, "he set diligently to
y work making a few experiments and
reading a few works that favored his
view, and thon wrote his findings as an
nbsoluto truth. In this way ho attacked
a -'.enre, relegated chemistry to the back
ground, nd reinstated alchemy, claiming
'n his 1..ngcmcnt that ho was bitterly
persecute J for this for years by the
aioncy powars because he had discovered
JJ ow to make gold."
