THE ALUMNI REVIEW
knowledges another great North Carolina teacher as
his master, but the style by which his scholarship is
distinguished he owes in large part to Dr. Hume, and
much no doubt of the idealism that characterizes his
thinking. Dr. Hume's mind is as alert, as eager, and
as interested as ever, although his body under the
whip of his spirit has paid barely less than full toll.
From a material viewpoint, teaching has been to
him ''a sterile field ;" but the fine thing is that he stands
quite clearly and unconsciously above the material
viewpoint. The cessation of work does not mark the
end of his influence, nor do the four walls of his room
limit its sphere. As a teacher of men it was given
to him to subdue the petty tyranny of time and space.
Is it not possible to say simply and with certitude about
such a teacher that life gives to him her greatest gift;
that even while he lives immortality becomes to him a
visible, a realized fact?
"The stream which overflowed the souls was passed
A consciousness remained that it had left
Deposited upon the silent shore
Of memory images and precious thoughts
That shall not die, and cannot be destroyed."
