A conference of delegates from the University Extension Centers at Ster ling, Dixon, Morrison and Clinton w»« held Wednesday afternoon In the Gall House with Prof. James, the head -, ol .the UnlYersHy, Extension department of the University of Chte*go r —In the evening a meeting of the Sterling Center was held in the Congregational church, At this meeting Prof. James delivered an excellent lecture on the "Life and Work of Bismarck." ( At the conference during the after noon the officers of the Sterling Center decided upon a course of University Extension lectures to be given here next autumn by Prof. William Goodyear, of the Chicago University. The Bubjectjof this_ferlea_ jof -_ leqtures^wilj be "Roman arr and "that "part "Which modern civilization owes to the devel opment of this art." The lectures will be begun during the month of October. . Those present from out of the city were Mr. Dodge, of Dixon; Mrs. Greene, of Morrison and Mr. Jones, of Clinton. ' Before beginning his lecture on Bis marck, Prof. James spoke of the Uni versity Extension Course to be given here in general, and of Prof. Goodyear and his series of lectures, in particular. Prof. Goodyear is recognized as an authority on Itoman art. All his lee- tares will be illustrated, many of the slides having been prepared by the speaker. Prof, Goodyear,ln'the course of his lectures, will give much of the results of his personal study of the subject The -lecturfhby : Prb"friJameson-^Tlur life and work of Bismarck"was perhaps the best of its kind ever given in Sterling. The gentleman has made a careful study of his subject, and his lecture was filled with historical facts in connectibn with the opinions of a scholar upon the characters tics of the man and the importance of his work. ~At the conclusion, a vote of thanks was extended Prof. James by the audience. By way of preface Mr. James spoke of the important history in the world's career which had come to pass during the present century. During this time, he said, the world has seen the develop ment of the democratic government, the abolishment of human slavery, the advancing strides in education, the development of steam and electricity and the greatest accumulation of human wealthT~~ . •. . *> "— •' • The foregoing points were cited as evidence that the present age was one of progress and that the century just closed is one of the greatest epochs in "the history of the world. The speaker then referred to the history of Germany from the time of Charlemagne to the time of Bismarck's appearance as an important factor in shaping politics of the German Confederation. He reviewed in detail each step In that country's history. • , Bismarck, the speaker said, was a monarchist of the most pronounced type at the beginning of his career. He was later, by the exigencies of the times, converted into an extreme liber- A__4etailed account of Bismarck's life and his'wprt in the diet at Frankfort was given, and particular attention was directed^ to Bismarck's part in the war against Austria by Prussia, and the consequent formation'of the North German Confederation. ' The work of the diplomat was shown In every step up to and including the Franco-Prussian war and the crowning of William I as Emperor of Germany at Versailles in 1871, and the final union of the German States into a single government. The master hand pf the diplomat w as shown in every project of Prince Bismarck during his career as Prime Minister, Bismarck, said the speaker, is the one man who, by his keen diplomatic wisdom, rendered German unity possible. There were many circumstances which favored him, and he was the one man, above all othere.who possessed wisdom to take advantage of the circumstances. Bismarck was a man of peace. Twice Bince the Franco-Prussian war has he averted a repetition of that conflict. He was fifteen years at the head of the government be founded. Bismarck practically laid tbe system of German government. Virtually, he drew up the entire German constitution. He declared German independence and made that independence possible. In conclusion, Prof. James ompared Bismarck's aeryicea to' Ger. many with those of Abraham Lincoln to the United States, Astrologist. Those persons wishing to consult me ihould come at once, as my time is United. All who have visited me express themselves as being well satisfied. MADAME CAI.DWELL, 0516 Boom 37, Wallace House.
