Croed of tho Scientist," a popular loc-

In tho lecture It was Pro(osBor

of'vlow of tho sclontlst. "Tho only
truo standard that tho sclontlst can
have," ho said, "Ib to bo able to work
for tho good of mankind; to discov
er how tho coju of mankind can bost
Iim yromotod. However this point of
vlow Is comparatively rocont. Primi

sclonco of astronomy 'thus had quite
an early boglunlng. Tho wind also
led to early investigation, and Its usos

earth was in, a molten condition.

"Tho true Ideal of this work is the
good of man. Sclonce can not Inter

Ho Is progressive and seeks to make

on with tho idea of mankind's wel
fare in mind. When the first natural
philosopher dropped the stones from
a high tower and tho results were
obtnlnod, tho doath knoll of tho old

"Today science is recognized overy

held to promote it. Wo are now led
to ask, What is sclonco? It 1b the
arrangement of knowlodgo into an
orderly system. It is tho business to
seek and describe knowledge for the
benefit of man. An old description In
now torms is not ,a contribution to
sclonco; but a woll organized descrip
tion of -something not before under-
stood is an addition to science. It
need not bo too technical and yet
terms relative to tho subject aro nec
essary to fully understand tho prob
lem. Tho scientist's method is from
the familiar to tho unfamiliar.
