grammar of colouring

I have therefore introduced new diagrams of the primary, secondary, and tertiary colors, with their numerical equivalents, which will, I trust, render the subject more clear than it has hitherto been. I have next developed the hints on the modes of operation, and have given ample and practical instructions as to the methods of mixing colors, and the manipulation generally adopted in Sepia, Water-colour, Tempera, Oil, and Fresco Painting, with information as to the materials and implements, used a section which will, I hope, be found practically useful to the student.

WISDOM is the presiding attribute of the Divine Architect, and KNOWLEDGE is the wisdom of man.

But there is yet a third super- latively Divine attribute, of infinitely more importance to the progress and well-being of man than either knowledge or power, and that is GOODNESS or well-doing, and there remains only for human attainment the fact that true knowledge and power are coincident with goodness to accomplish the original title of man to the resemblance of his Maker.
