His dearest friend, Ambrose St. The healthy human intellect will never believe that the same proposition may be true for faith and untrue in fact; but this is the Modernist contention. The growth of wealth and population, and the law of diminishing returns, led to a scramble for unappropriated lands producing the raw materials of industry.
