Address all Communications to THE COSMOS, CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA Isi THE SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN. Science is now based upon truth. Her age of ignorant credulity and base deceit is gone. The scientist no longer, with assumed fore- knowledge offers to man a system of unsub- stantiated beliefs, nor lays down a code of laws for nature to obey; nay, the modern scientist meekly seeks out the facts and reali- ties concerning nature and not until he has pondered them, tested them in every con- ceivable way, and viewed them in every pos- sible light, does he, by grouping them in their relative connection with nature, deduct his theory m regard to her laws of action.

But we, wtio are heirs of all the ages, would basely discard our birthright should we reject the truth which has been sought and found by the wisest men. Yet we must not accept truth simply because wise men have proclaimed it, but we must assimil- ate it, by thinking their thoughts again, by making their conceptions our own, as we trace their investigations, step by step, and thus, led by the stronger minds, we may feel our way into the .realms of truth which they have discovered, and share their triumphs. It is true that the laurels with which New- ton is crowned for having first discovered the great law which rules the universe, can never be appropriated by his followers. Nor can we, with aspiring upon ourselves the applause which mankind so heartily bestows upon Bacon, Spencer, Franklin, Harvey, and our immortal Edison. But, shall we, like an Alexander sit down and weep, because many fields of science have been fought and won by those noble heroes? because they have op- JNEWSFAPESJ iWSPAPERfl
