"The more we know the -more
we want." Did you ever think
about that? The more we know
about music, the more we want to
hear it. to have it in our homes;
that means a sale for pianos. The
more we know about poetry, the
more we want to own copies of
Tennyson and Longfellow; that
means the sale of books. The
more we know about domestic
architecture, the better homes we
build and the more churches and
libraries and public halls. That
keeps contractors and carpenters
and stonemasons busy. The more
we know about outdoors and land
scape gardening, the more we buy
plants and shrubs and flowering
vines, and the nursery man has
his prosperity. The more pretty
gowns and bonnets women set
their eves on, the busier we keep
the milliners and dressmakers.
