    The Cardinal firmly and clearly showed Galileo the error of his way. That night Galileo did not close his eyes in sleep. A suppressed feminine screech followed, but the fires of friendship were not quenched by so slight an incident, which Mrs. One of his pupils, and a great artist, Lodovico Cigoli, always maintained that it was to the inspiration and counsel of Galileo that he owed his success. He owned "bum" telescopes that proved all kinds of things, to the great amusement of the enemies of Galileo. The doctor quoted a line from "Richard the Third," "Sent before my time into this breathing world scarce half made up," and gave the infant into the keeping of an old nurse with an ominous shake of the head, and went his way, absolved.

    He even stuck a louse on the lens and located the beast in the heavens, for the benefit of a doubting Cardinal. On this one thing does its stability depend. The populace would watch the man put on his "specillum," and the idea was everywhere abroad that the magic glasses gave an ability to read; and that anybody who was inspired by angels, or devils, who could get hold of spectacles, could at once read from a book. In this public work Newton brought such talent and diligence to bear that in Sixteen Hundred Ninety- [Pg 43] seven he was made Master of the Mint, at a salary of fifteen hundred pounds a year—a princely sum in those days. No orthodox lyceum course would tolerate him; he was neither an impersonator nor an entertainer; the stereopticon and the melodramatic were out of his line, and his passion for truth made him impossible to the many. On arising from his knees, legend declares that he said, "Yet the earth does move!

    Accounts still in existence show that their income was thirty pounds a year. Ayscough, and he advised that a boy who was so bound to study should be allowed to study. The Archbishop of Pisa said, "Upon him has fallen the mantle of Michelangelo. When the dust of conflict concerning Newton's announcement of the qualities of light had somewhat subsided, he turned to his former discovery, the Law of Gravitation, and bent his mighty mind upon it.

A wizard, be it known, is a male witch, and the Bible says, "Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live," although it does not say anything about wizards.

Occasionally, the magician would persuade his customer to try on the glasses, and then even common men could see for themselves that there was something in the scheme — goodness me! This caused young Mr. Ray died in Seventeen Hundred Five, aged seventy-six. He fled to Geneva, the home of Calvin.

But now it was shown to Newton that a schoolman must not Little journeys to homes of great scientists . book know how to work out great problems, but also why he goes at it in a certain [Pg 29] way; otherwise, colleges are vain—we must be able to pass our knowledge Little journeys to homes of great scientists .

The [Pg 20] fond mother was now sorely disappointed in her boy, and made remarks to the effect that if she had looked after his bringing up instead of entrusting him to an indulgent grandmother, affairs at this time would not be in their present state.

To the world at large he was a "wizard" and a "juggler" before he was acknowledged a teacher of truth—a man of science. He saw Garrick act and heard George Frederick Handel, where the crowd was so great that a notice was posted requesting gentlemen to come without swords and ladies without hoops.

There are denials from Churchmen that Galileo was so much as imprisoned. The old man was then released, a prisoner on parole, and allowed to make his way home to Florence, which he did by easy stages, helped along the way by friendly monks who discussed with him all questions but those of astronomy.

Porta also claimed that he had seen telescopes by which you could look over a hill and around a corner, but he did not recommend them, since by their use things are often perceived that were not there.

But where should he go — what could he do? Then he laughed, and it came to him that opposition was a part of the great game of life. What he saw, he knew, but when he took things on the word of Marco Polo and Sir John Mandeville for these gentlemen adventurers have always livedhe fell into curious errors.

Some force tugging at it, surely! Voltaire has said, "When Sir Isaac Newton discovered the Law of Gravitation he excited the envy of the learned men of the world; but they more than got even with him when he wrote a book on the prophecies of the Bible.

There is no doubt that the fact that Newton was a devout Churchman and an upholder of the Established Order was a great, although perhaps unconscious, diplomatic move. The Archbishop of Pisa especially felt it incumbent [Pg 77] upon him "to bring Galileo to justice. Father Brini said that if the earth revolved, we would [Pg 76] all fall off of it into the air when it was upside down; moreover, its whirling through space would create a wind that would sweep it bald.
