The work of Bur- bank is slight compared to all that is being done by the many others menced to fly. Then tree "day" the beast of the field, the mannnal, those that suckh; thcir young, were cre- ated. Some of these mammals, like the bat, took to flying, and others like the whale and porpoise took to the water. The grand elinlax to all this creative procxss was staged when man came oll the scene. But con- trary to the belicf of some he was no monkey, alheit he could hardly ex- press himself. Adam, "after he ate the apple," it must be remembered, was qnite civilized alongside of this early gentleman who knew neither shanm nor sin, but just enough to eat, drink, sleep and be ignorant. We have quite a large number of these peol)le with us today, and not worldng in the entire field of biology. It is the work of these men which living in the forests either. Of the is story of man we have two Jews, emi- enal)ling mankind to live a inorc comfortable and secure life than be- fore The Study of Life The study of life, when properly presented, is far nmre enticing, fas- cinating and alluring than any tic- tion. The history of any sl)ecies, showing its growth, as in the case of the borse which at one time was as small as the dog, is indeed one grand long natural and artificial achieve- ment. The best and most read of all I)assages in the Bible is the elm deal- ing with Creation in Genesis. There we read that God first made the wat- ers swarm with fishes, second, the air filled with birds, and later he made the beasts of the earth. Man came last as a fitting climax, and was given dmninion over living things in the water, 'dr, and on hind. ]f we take the word "day" used in the Bihle figuratively instead of lit- erally we shall find for general pur- poses it fits in well with the History of Lift; as constructed by the biolo- gist and geologist. They, the bi- ologist and geologist, use the word "epoch" or "age" to denote the passing of time as lhe earth changed. The biologist and geologist are agreed that fishes eanm before l)irtls, birds I)efore mammals, and the four beasts before man. Simple Lifo Forms The story nf lift; constructed by the biologist and geolegist is hased upon fossil rein.tins found in eer|ain layers in reek and coal 1)eds, chalk hills, and in coral ishmds, as well as frmu the "l)rin[s" nmde by former living things. These fossils were at one time living phmts and aninmls. The phrase "ohl fossil," nleaning a "dead one," is taken from the ter- nlinelogy nf the binh)gist. These "ohl fossils" 1)uried in the earth con- stitutc a vast cellar, rich in wealth which man has only h, arned to tall during the past ]50 years. The teal and oil we use are. the real,tins of trillions upon trillions of dead matter which one day l)olmlated the earth. When we lint a shovelful of coal in tlie furnace we are bringing to o111' aid millions nf former living things. When "stel)ping on the gas" we are doing the same thing. Oil and coal are made (11) of vegetable and aninml matter, excepting when the coal man adds to the ton a few clmnks of rock. nent in Anthropoh)gy, the science of nlan, who have written much on that subject; Franz Boas and Alexander A.

It is the real (trams ef lift,, with millions and billions of actors apl)earing in their several acts, manifesting love, hatred, war, l)eace, on large and small scales. Objects of Biology Bioh)gy, however, has another ob- ject to 1)erfonn. It strives to make itself useful to men. To that end the ancients many years ago attempted to organize what knowledge they )ossessed of auinnds and l)hmts into some sort of a system. Observations were made how this or that animal and l)hmt pro'formed its individual and group functions, and they were classitied after a certain fashion. Aristotle, the Greek, al)out 350 B.

They, in order to better their 1,ractie.e were com])elled to study plant life, bec.ause nine-tenths of the medidine was extracted from herbs.
