Abstract

It is the purpose of this paper to help popularize the scientific facts that have been discovered by the research laboratories which are controlled and fostered by our national government and individual States of the Union, and by the laboratories of the denominational institutions of higher education. Vast sums of money are spent each year to maintain such work. No one can question their efficiency or practical value. Such knowledge is not prized as highly as it should be, nor are the discoveries as thoroughly known as they should be. The bulletins that are issued from the various stations are within the reach of everyone, they are absolutely free. Like streams that have their origin in the ice fields of remote mountains, they come in gentle cascades to satisfy the thirsty and revive life, and give hope for better and higher life. "Doth not Wisdom cry? and Understanding put forth her voice?" "She crieth at the gates, at the entry, at the coming, at the doors."
