"That which is for the public welfare," he said, "is God's will"; and therein we have the root of that utilitarianism which, as Maine pointed out, is the real parent of all nineteenth century change. And with Locke, as with the Benthamites, his clear sense of what utilitarianism demanded led to an over-emphasis of human rationalism.

It has been well said, that real elegance of demeanor springs from the mind; fashionable schools do but teach its imitation." Here she quotes, with apparent approbation, the views of Mr. Locke.

The weakness of our apprehension I grant in the case: I confess as much as you please, that we cannot conceive how an unsolid created substance thinks; but this weakness of our apprehension reaches not the power of God, whose weakness is stronger than anything in man." Lastly, Locke turns upon his opponent the power of the odium theologicum.

No man ever more carefully studied the operation of his own mind and the intellectual character of others." Nor did Bacon despise metaphysical science, only the frivolous questions that the old scholastics associated with it, and the general barrenness of their speculations. He surely would not have disdained the subsequent inquiries of Locke, or Berkeley, or Leibnitz, or Kant.

The white cliffs of Albion covered the soil of our nativity, though another hemisphere first opened our eyes on the light of day, and oceans rolled between us and them. We were Britons born, and we claimed to be the countrymen of Chaucer and Shakspeare, Milton and Newton, Sidney and Locke, Arthur and Alfred, as well as of Edward the Black Prince, Harry of Monmouth, and Elizabeth.

"I thought yould like to go over with me," said Jarrow. "No, I'll stick by the schooner until this hitch with the crew is straightened out." "Maybe Mr. Locke'll want to go?" "Not for me," said Locke. "Marjorie'll want to go when I do, and I don't want to have anything said about what's turned up. You take Dinshaw." "I'll need two men to row," objected Jarrow.

Little by little you will harden him till he can face the burning heat of the tropics without danger. Locke, in the midst of the manly and sensible advice he gives us, falls into inconsistencies one would hardly expect in such a careful thinker. The same man who would have children take an ice-cold bath summer and winter, will not let them drink cold water when they are hot, or lie on damp grass.

Miss Locke looked at me wistfully a moment. 'What am I to do? She would fret herself into a fever if I crossed her whims.
