[Note: This etext was transcribed from the 1918 American (original) edition.
There are some slight differences, such as making the titles in the contents
conform exactly to the titles of the individual sections, for ease
of searching, and correction of mistakes which are very obviously mistakes,
and not merely archaic or unorthodox usage, but great care has been taken
not to change the text, and hopefully this has been accomplished.]
