Prof. t(cheim gave an unusually
suggestive lecture before Unity club
lust night on "The Origin of Some Fa-
miliar Institutions," which was great-
ly enjoyed by all. W o have become
so accustomedl to many of our ins tu-
tions that we are apt to think that
they have always existed in the forim
in which we have them, but society is
no such ready made organization. A
long and varying career has brought
them to their present condittion, evolv-
ing them from most humble begin-
nings. The law of contract is a good
example. Nothing sees more natural
than this, but it was ono' a very eum-
berous thing. The promise itself was
hidden in an overwhelming mass of
forms, where the pledges and wit-
nesses and elaborate legal ceremonies
overshadowed the eontent. Many gen-
erations of gradual improvement were
necessary to free men' from this eum-
Still more interesting is the develop-

for the actions of his servants. The
origin of this in the instinctive de-
mand for vengeance for injury suf-
fered. At first this vengeance was
wreaked upon the offending servant or
chattel. Then the master or owner
bought off the injured party by pay-
ment of a stipulated suii, and finally
the initiative passed to the injured
party who demanded reparation of the
Similarly several other institutions
were traced from their crude begin-
nings, especially the family and the
status of women. The whole investi-
gation shows the tenacity of custom.
Old customs are adapted to new use
and clothed in new garb. Modern in-
stitutions are by no lcanss accidental,
