Prof. Chasrles E. Greene's lectrarO nefore the Unity club Monday evening ivas very interesting and so disapoihtmg, as the auidence hardly believert that such .a subject as "Engineers and Engineering Schools" could be made attractive to a general audience. The professor briefly reviewed the science of engineering from the time of the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans to the present day and showed very clearly that our present civilization is dua mainly 'to the engineer. Raflroads, canals and the ooean steamers are all his work, while the electrical engineer has annihilated space and time in the matter of transmitting information by the telegraph and telepnone. Engineering is progressive science. Law is conservativo, medicine inclines the same way, while theology "lags superfluoua on the stage." Engineering is the fourth learned profession and is quite as essential as any 01 all the others to the comfort, the safety and happiness of mankind, while upon engineering we shall have to depend for the futura progress of socinty and the race in construction and material well being.
