I is,ue for Collier’s Weekly as an answer
to claims for evolution made in the prev

“The theory of evolution." Mr. Bryan
says, "is dangerous to society. When
one considers man but a 'bundle of char
acteristics inherited from brute ancest
ors.' as many evolutionists do, it not ou

"Followers „f Darwin have carried th : s
( doctrine o fares to declare that pity and
sympathy, tile greatest of moral forces,
are unmanly and interfere with the com

people wlio profess to believe in evolu
tion have ever read Darwin.
"Ail Darwinians are prone to under
est'mate the relative importance of en-
I vironuient. To argue that descendants
inherit intelligence because of physical
laws is to ignore the fact that intelligent
people surround their children with ail
environment that cultivates intellectual
ideals and furnishes educational opport
tunities to the Child. /
From Humble to Great.
‘There is proof in abundance to sup
port the proposition that a child boru in
to a home where neither parent eau read
or write, may in spite of such an inheri
tance, rise to intellectual heights, pro
vided the environment is favorable.
“Most of our great men in the I'nited
States come from the common people
and it is no reflection upon tbe parent
to say that a elrld surpasses him in
breadth of mental vision or in depth of
intellectual enthusiasm. And this is not
an evolution, because we have examples
of ignorant children who were the de
scendants of intelligent parents. They
simply lack the ambition and ideals that
inspired industry. This Is not a defect
that comes in the blood, but is the result
of bad companions or bad habits.
"Nothing could be more disastrous to
the race than to have parents act accord
ing to the philosophy of evolutionists.
