Excerpt from The Harvester: For Gathering the Ripened Crops on Every Homestead, Leaving the Unripe to Mature

N surveying the past history of the world, we find all useful knowledge to have been the result of long and patient'examination, Often cone ducted amid severest trials and, in spite of personal suffering. Every useful invention in art, or dis covery in science, has in its development and progress been Opposed by the violent Objections of stupid prejudice, and has been finally'adopted only when the heavy burdens Of ignorance and superstition have been removed. Man first ao quired the Opinions which, he afterwards fondly cherished, not by the exercise of Observation and reasoning, but rather by his fancy and love of the marvellous, his hopes and fears. The earliest records of the past concerning all science consist of mythologic legends, and marvellous descriptions of the extraordinary qualities of the Objects studied.

The orderly classification Of knowledge has been a work Of great difficulty. Beginning with a few real. Facts, it has then proceeded to construct speculative results, gathering together in the process all kindred data favorable for its purpose andthus from the frailest hypotheses have grown our best and truest systems of science. When the human intellect fairly began to apply itself to theobservation Of Nature, its progress toward genuine science soon became V1s1ble. Yet the study Of tradition and mystery is Often more grateful to man, even when he has been roused to intelligence and activity, than the study Of Nature.
