Canon Kingsley On Physiological Training

Nature volume 6, pages 489490 | Download Citation



THE recent address of Canon Kingsley, as President of the Birmingham and Midland Institute, has struck a key-note which has been widely responded to. Not that he has said anything new; but truths are none the less true for being world-old. It is something to find a man of Mr. Kingsle's popularity and influence insisting on the need of physical and scientific culture; it is more that the utterance should be made to a crowded audience at one of our great centres of industry, it is still more that our daily and weekly papers should at length discern the importance of that which a select few have long been preaching in vain. We can, however, only refer to some of the more important points on which the lecturer touched, referring our readers to the report in extenso, in the Birmingham Daily Post.
