THE GENIUS OF CULTURE.  If anyone wished to imagine a genius of culture, what would it be like?  It handles as its tools falsehood, force, and thoughtless selfishness so surely that it could only be called an evil, demoniacal being; but its aims, which are occasionally transparent, are great and good.  It is a centaur, half beast, half man, and, in addition, has angel's wings upon its head.
