THE CYCLOPES OF CULTURE.  Whoever has seen those furrowed basins which once contained' glaciers, will hardly deem it possible that a time will come when the same spot will be a valley of woods and meadows and streams.  It is the same in the history of mankind; the wildest forces break the way, destructively at first, but their activity was nevertheless necessary in order that later on a milder civilisation might build up its house.  These terrible energies- that which is called Evil- are the cyclopic architects and road makers of humanity.
