The highway to the Province of the Four Streams lies up through the Yangtze Gorges, where the river may rise 200 feet at flood-water, and where boats are man-handled up rapids by half-a-hundred coolies straining at bamboo hawsers. Beyond lies the 'Garden of West China' at the foot of the ranges of West Szechwan. Near by are the famous salt-wells, some of which took three generations to drill ; the brine is led through bamboo pipes to cauldrons, where it is boiled by natural gas. Our Chinese friend,
Mr. Ch'en, will recite the sonnet of the exile from Szechwan, written by the famous poet, Li Po, in A.D. 750.

' The Industrial Revolution'
EILEEN POWER, Professor of Economic
History in the University of London
Industrial Revolution is the term given by historians for convenience to that process whereby Britain was turned from a country that was mainly agricultural to one that was mainly occupied in the production of manufactured goods for export to the whole world. It coincided with the development of steam power and the invention of new types of machinery, and led to the sudden growth of great industrial areas and to many complicated economic problems that have never been finally solved. This afternoon Professor Eileen Power will deal in detail with the causes and the results of the Industrial Revolution, and explain why it happened first of all in Britain, and why it spread so rapidly to the continent of Europe, to America, and finally to Asia.
