J£s3a\)f0t; Materialism. It is significant that tho Nineteenth Cen tury has produced little. in the lines governed by the creative imagination. Its fecundity in the direction of material science ha3 been prodigious. In all that ministers to and facili tates the massing of wealth and its distribu tion the activity of invention has been un paralleled. The power of tho human intel lect in overcoming natural difficulties, in mastering time and space, in multiplying tho extending the area of commerce and settle ment, in increasing the average of comfort, in enlarging the field cf luxury, in expand ing the purchasing power of money, was never so signally manifested. Nevertheless, this century of unprecedented growth in material prosperity has been butabarren one in things not material: In the ages which produced original imaginative work it is to bo noted that the blasters were dependent, not upon the past, but upon tho spirit of their own time. The master-pieces of painting, sculp ture, ...
