It can be approached from many sides, each with some peculiar advantage of its own; but, after careful deliberation, it appears to me that, for the purpose of the present course, no better starting-point could be selected than the relation between Spirit and Matter. I select... more...

I I once heard him (2) discuss the topic of economy (3) after the following manner.

CHAPTER I Raw Materials Used in Soap Making. Soap is ordinarily thought of as the common cleansing agent well known to everyone.

These salts are not only those formed by the alkali metals, sodium and potassium, but also those formed by the heavy metals and alkaline earths.
