Sad and glorious Is

glorious In the light of the splendid
triumph that in the fulness of time

learned that In so doing;, he had made a
great mistake. He was required to, atop
th.nk.ng-, a command to which hla active
mind could not possibly become obedient.
He kept on thinking, and soon found
out that he was a "suspect." His brother
monks looked at him with wide-opened
eyes full of amaxement and terror. They
ualled him a heretic, and he was expelled
from the order.
Cast out from the monastery, Bruno
began his continental wanderings, pro
claiming himself wherever he went the

the learned doctor, "I have read Arltsotle
many times, and I assure you there la
nothing of the kind mentioned by him.
Go rest in peace, and be certain that
the spots which you have seen are in
your eyes and not In the sun."
Bruno pitched Into the mighty Aristotle
as David did into Goliath and slew him.
"There Is a greater than Aristotle," he
declared, "and that great thing Is reason."
Bruno was the originator of the noble
motto, "Not Authority for Truth, but
Truth for Authority." It was Bruno who,
for the first time among the moderns,
said: 'That which Is indorsed by enlight
ened reason and the facts carries along
with Itself Its own authority, but no
amount of authority can make a lie to
be other than a lie."
With truth ' for his object at.d reason
and investigation as his guides, Bruno
flamed through Europe, announcing things
that human ears had never been called
upon to listen to before. He told men
that God was in the universe, not apart
from it, and that the universe was a
much bigger affair than they had been In
the habit of thinking it was.
The first to fully grasp the mighty
significance of the discoveries of Coper
nicus, he was the first also to nercelva
that those discoveries necessitated a new
theology, and a new philosophy of the
world and of man.
With commanding , eloquence Bruno
discoursed, with are ardor of one of the
old crusaders, of a universe that was
boundless. He divinised nature not by
degrading the Deity to the material, but
by lifting up the material to a participa
tion in the spiritual.
And so, anticipating Bacon, and De
scartes, and Newton, and La Tlace, and
Darwin, and Herbert Spencer. Bruno
passed from country to country', the
herald of the dawn, the pathfinder of
modern solentlfio and phllospohlo truth.
Of course, the position of a man of

was like standing on dynamite. His life
was not safe for a day, or for an hour.

The Inquisition got after Bruno and
cast him Into prison. He was a dangerous
character. He was making people think

popular with "those In authority."

publicly burned to death, in the fifty

I do not believe in "love" st first sight.
In the charm that atracts at once, in the
magnetism that makes itself felt almost
before a word haa been spoken, in the al
lure that reaches across tides of lack of
knowledge and understanding, I do be

gether are stable things worthy of the
name of "love" I gravely doubt.

like that. It cannot endure the warmth
