                         III
PORTO RICO UNDER THE STARS AND STRIPES

                GREAT events for good or evil, are not
                  the result of merely human wisdom.
                  power, or enterprise; but rather the
                  development of mighty superhuman

for latent energies to combine and exert their influences
for good or evil. The current must be in harmony with
its source; and in so far as germs and principles are con-
