mathematical genius, which seems to develop early, to be likely to be hereditary and to be comparatively unaffected by external conditions. Kelvin's father, without early opportunities, became professor of mathematics in Glasgow University, and his brother was professor of engineering there. Kelvin was appointed to the chair of natural philosophy at the ageof twenty two. He matriculated as a student at the age of eleven, and at the age of seventeen began to publish papers on the mathematical theory of heat. Migrating to Peterhouse, Cam bridge, he became second wrangler. Within four years Stokes, Cayley and Adams had been senior wranglers, illus trating the precocity of mathematical genius and the mathematical activity of Cambridge at that period. For fifty three years Kelvin was professor of natural philosophy at Glasgow.

er when asked. "The tomb of William Thomson, Baron Kelvin of Largs, now stands beside that of Darwin in Westminster Abbey, and a great epoch in history is closed. The nineteenth century will remain preeminent for the supremacy of science and for the advance of industrial democracy. Great Britain more than any other nation has led these movements, and no other of its great men so completely typifies them as he who ranged from cosmic speculations to industrial inventions, who brought together mathematical physics and practical engineering. While Kelvin retained to the age of eighty three years much of the vigor, keenness and intellectual curiosity of youth, he belongs in a sense to the middle of the nineteenth century rather than to the more complicated period of its close. For the grandson of an Irish Womens Adidas Gazelle Og Trainers Light Grey peasant farmer to amass great wealth, discard his plebian name and take a seat in the house of lords is a social ideal of the earlier rather than of the later democracy.

He liked models that he could visualize; he did not care for the doctrine of evolution; even in his own field the researches of others did not greatly affect him.
This is perhaps typical of genius, especially Adidas Gazelle Black And White Size 5
Like Helmholtz he was not a good lecturer, but like his great German friend lie exercised an enormous influence on the progress of science directly as well as by his published work. The jubilee of his professorship was adequately cele brated in 1896; from the volume giving some account of it, the portraits here reproduced are taken. Kelvin was president of the Royal Society and of the British Association, and was active in their work, rarely failing to take a leading part at the annual meeting of the association. All the highest scien tific honors were of course conferred on him. He was twice married, but leaves no issue. To the general public Kelvin is best known for his share in submarine telegraphy, for his improvements in the compass, for his machine for taking soundings and for other inventions, scores of which he patented.
