There is not in the State a more versatile speaker than Professor Carlyle, nor one more entertaining in conversation. His address last Thursday night was "The Man of the Hour". Every age has its peculiar spirit. The age of Martin Luther whs one of intense religious enthusiasm. That of Columbus was pasion for discovery; that of U. ie..-n Eliza ieh was marked by deep devotion to literary excellence. The charac'trstio of our age is a tribute to ideals of a Democracj. Hence ours is intensely Democratic. Addressiug his young hearers he declared with us the inm (f the hour must have knowledge. He must know. Second he unut be willing to dare. Ih'.rd, he must have profound faith, not only in his own ability but he mast have faith in the ability of the Supreme Being and rely upon him for aid in all he undertakes. Fourth, with a spirit of hopefulness he will aspiie evei t greater tnings which, it is possible for all to obtain who are predominated by those four charae teristics.
