The Conclusion Reached by Eminent Philosophers

In March, 1891, it was my good fortune to spend a few days in Athens, Greece; and, while there. I visited the National Academy the highest educational institution in the kingdom. Its buildings are situated on the high ground of the new city, are modern,and are constructed of pure white marble.

The Hall of Philosophy, which had recently been completed,was most interesting to me. It is a one story structure in the Corinthian style of architecture, its interior walls and the seats being of pure white marble, while it is lighted wholly from the ceiling. On the walls are several paintings of heroic size, vividly portraying the legend of Prometheus. Though the hall is not large. seating only perhaps a hundred person, its effect is strikingly noble and impressive.
