Abstract
Dame Nature, the beneficent genie, has in all ages, in all climes, in all vicissitudes of man’s life, held a powerful sway over his thoughts, his feelings, and his moods. In vain has he tried to subdue her. She has permitted him to control her resources; and these work for him, slave for him, serve him from the cradle to the grave. But who can command the forces of Nature? Who can say to the thunder, "Roll on!" Or to the sea, "Be still'." God alone commands where human potency is inadequate. |The power of Nature over man has been acknowledged through the ages. The Greeks worshipped her as "Demeter"; the Romans named her "Ceres." We of the Christian era consider her and her gifts as a precious boon that God bestows upon man during his earthly sojourn.
