Excerpt from Our Republic and a Review of the World's History: Including the Achievements and Triumphs of Investors and Scientists in Making the Last Century the Greatest in the History of the World; A Lucid, Dispassionate Account of the Men and Events That Have Made Our Republic the Greatest Power of the World

The best plan is to learn in what ways ancient history, or what men did in the early times, affected the history that followed. To do this it is necessary to learn only the most important acts of men when the world was young. A good many histories repeat numerous myths or legends, as they are called, most of which are untrue or at best very doubtful. Let us not burden our minds with such fables, for there is plenty to learn that is true. 'e will begin with the first record that can be depended upon and so come down to the present.

Now you know that a history of the world is simply an account of what men have done. God made the earth, divided it into land and water, brought into being all forms of vegetable and animal life, and crowned His work by creating man and giving him dominion over all that was around him.

One of the strange facts that no one fully understands is that while God created men in His own image, He made so wide a difference in their color and looks that we class them into distinct races or families. Most likely you have been taught that these are five in number, but a better division is to make only three, since every person can be grouped among one or another of these races. They are as follows: I. The Caucasian, who have a whitish skin, long silky hair and regular features. They are the greatest historical race and include the most highly civilized peoples.

II. The Mongolian, who have as a rule, rough yellowish skin and coarse black hair. In this family are included the American Indians.
