tantial army.Continued from chap. 70. Cp. Plut. Timoleon 24.1-2. He launched an assault on the part called Neapolis, but since the soldiers in the city were numerous and had an advantage in fighting from the walls, he accomplished nothing and broke off the siege. Passing on to the city Engyum, which was controlled by the tyrant Leptines,Probably the Leptines mentioned in chap. 45.9, and probably the nephew of the elder Dionysius (T. Lenschau, Real-Encyclopädie, 12 (1925), 2073). he assailed it with repeated attacks in the hope of expelling Leptines and restoring to the city its freedom. Taking advantage of his preoccupation, Hicetas led out his entire force and attempted to lay siege to Syracuse, but lost many of his men and hastily retreated back to Leontini. Leptines was frightened into submission, and Timoleon shipped him off to the Peloponnese under a safe-conduct, giving the Greeks tangible evidence of the results of his pr

re of the ground, it is, perhaps, too much trouble to have them out frequently when there is no war going on; but you should call the men together, and recommend them to practise turning off the roads and galloping over all sorts of ground when they are riding to quarters or any other place. For this does as much good as taking them out, and it is less tedious. It is useful to remind them that the state supports an expenditure of nearly forty talentsSay 9,500 pounds as reckoned about the year 1925. The pay is, of course, alluded to. The expenditure would amount daily to nearly 666 drachmae. The cavalryman's normal pay was a drachma a day. Hence it looks as if the number of the cavalry in 365 B.C. had fallen to about 650. a year in order that she may not have to look about for cavalry in the event of war, but may have it ready for immediate use. For with this thought in their minds the men are likely to take more pains with their horsemanship, so that when war breaks out they may not ha

he price of their clothes, but to the excellent condition of their bodies. Nor yet is there any reason for amassing money in order to spend it on one's messmates; for he made it more respectable to help one's fellows by toiling with the body than by spending money,Agesilaus, 9.6. pointing out that toil is an employment of the soul, spending an employment of wealth. By other enactments he rendered it impossible to make money in unfair ways. In the first place the system of coinage that he established was of such a kind that even a sum of ten minaeSome 40 pounds [about the year 1925]. could not be brought into a house without the master and the servants being aware of it: the money would fill a large space and need a wagon to draw it. Moreover, there is a right of search for gold and silver, and, in the event of discovery, the possessor is fined. Why, then, should money-making be a preoccupation in a state where the pains of its possession are more than the pleasures of its enjoyment?

e of its deacons, emeritus at the last, doing some fine historical work at its seventy-fifth anniversary. He was chosen a vice-president of this Society in 1915, and ever after gave of his time and effort to our work. During the five years he thus served, in which were strenuous days and exacting duties (two of the vice-presidents being laid aside by sickness), your president found him his right-hand man, and during the following five years, in our reversed positions, he was ever striving for our welfare and success. Appointed upon the city's committee for Patriot's Day he entered heartily into the plans for the coming Revolutionary memorial and was one of the Minute Men of 1925. That was his latest public work. Illness in May prevented his doing more. In bodily weakness he returned to his daily duties and his persevering zea kept him at his office till a certain line of work was finished. That duty done he came home to sleep,— his last sleep, which wakes not here. —M. W.
Season of 1924-25. October 20. Unseasonably cold, but nine present to give their vacation experiences. President Ackerman told his, in which he felled an oak tree (just over Medford line in Somerville), where thirty-two two-apartment houses have been built. The tree was one hundred and ninety years old. Mr. Mann told of his at the Holton family reunion at Northfield, where he read the historical address on August 28, quoting a little therefrom. Several others alluded to theirs and a pleasant evening (indoors) was passed. November 17. Sudden winter conditions, and but five came to our rooms. Rev. Arthur Ackerman was to have spoken but it was thought best to await a better time. December 15. A cold day and evening. Misfortune of fire in barrel of kindling wood—some damage by smoke. But four ventured out to the meeting. January 19, 1925. Annual meeting. Various reports made and officers chosen. January 26. Seven directors held meeting at Mr. Colby's and appoin

And we will reach this too if we do not ourselves relinquish the chance by the rolly and evils of disunion, or by long and exhausting war springing from the only great element of national discord among us. While it cannot be foreseen exactly how much one huge example of secession breeding lesser ones indefinitely, would retard population civilization, and prosperity no one ca
