"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. Yoli seel It navs in iron, I num.! '" i" eoucuie i in own.
