The creed of our cruel cities is not so sane and just as the creed of the old country-side; but the people are just as clever in giving names to their sins in the city as in giving names to their joys in the wilderness. One could not better sum up Christianity than by calling a small white insignificant flower ‘The Star of Bethlehem.’ But then again one could not better sum up the philosophy deduced from Darwinism than in the one verbal picture of ‘having your monkey up.’
