This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project

to make the world's books discoverable online.

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover.

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the

publisher to a library and finally to you.

Usage guidelines

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for in forming people about this project and helping them find additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it.

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe.

At the weekly services of many of our churches it is customary to begin with the reading of a verse or two from the Scrip- tures for the purpose, I suppose, of put- ting the congregations in the proper state of mind for the exercises which are to fol- low. It seems to me we may profit by this example, and accordingly I ask your atten- tion to Article I. of the Constitution of the American Association for the Advance- ment of Science, which reads thus: * The objects of the association are, by periodical and migratory meetings, to promote inter- course between those who are cultivating science in different parts of America, to give stronger and more general impulse and more systematic direction to scientific research, and to procure for the labors of scientific men increased facilities and a wider usefulness.'

The first object mentioned, you will ob- serve, is * to promote intercourse between those who are cultivating science in dif- ferent parts of America ' ; the second is * to give a stronger and more general im- pulse and more systematic direction to sci- entific research * ; and the third is * to pro- cure for the labors of scientific men in- creased facilities and a wider usefulness.' Those who are familiar with the history of the association are well aware that it has served its purposes admirably, and I ai^ inclined to think that those who have been

[N. S. Vol. XIX. No. 4

in the habit of attending the meetings will agree that the object which appeals to them most strongly is the promotion of in- tercourse between those who are cultivat- ing science. Given this intercourse and the other objects will be reached as a neces- sary consequence, for the intercourse stim- ulates thought, and thought leads to work, and work leads to wider usefulness.

While in 1848, when the association was organized and the constitution was adopted, there was a fair number of good scientific investigators in this country, it is certain that in the half century that has passed since then the number of investi- gators has increased very largely, and nat- urally the amount of scientific work done at present is very much greater than it was at that time. So great has been the increase in scientific activity during recent years that we are apt to think that by com- parison scientific research is a new acquisi- tion. In fact there appears to be an im- pression abroad that in the world at large scientific research is a relatively new thing, for which we of this generation and our immediate predecessors are largely respon- sible. Only a superficial knowledge of the history of science is necessary, however, to show that the sciences have been developed slowly, and that their beginnings are to be looked for in the very earliest times. Everything seems to point to the conclu- sion that men have always been engaged in efforts to learn more and more in regard to the world in which they find themselves. Sometimes they have been guided by one motive and sometimes by another, but the one great underlying motive has been the desire to get a clearer and clearer under- standing of the universe. But besides this there has been the desire to find means of increasing the comfort and happiness of the human race.

A reference to the history of chemistry will serve to show how these motives have

operated side by side. One of the fii great incentives for working with chemic things was the thought that it was possil to convert base metals like lead and copp into the so-called noble metals, silver aj gold. Probably no idea has ever ope ated as strongly as this upon the minds men to lead them to undertake chemic experiments. It held control of intellectn men for centuries and it was not un* about a hundred years ago that it lost i hold. It is very doubtful if the pure scientific question whether one form matter can be transformed into anoth would have had the power to control tJ activities of investigators for so long time; and it is idle to speculate upon th subject. It should, however, be borne mind that many of those who were engage in this work were actuated by a desire put money in their purses— a desire th is by no means to be condemned withoi reserve, and I mention it not for the pu pose of condemning it, but to show that motive that we sometimes think of as pec liarly modern is among the oldest knoi« to man.

When the alchemists were at work upc their problems, another class of chemis were engaged upon problems of an entire! different nature. The fact that substance obtained from various natural sources ar others made in the laboratory produ< effects of various kinds when taken in1 the system led to the thought that thei substances might be useful in the trea ment of disease. Then, further, it wi thought that disease itself is a chemic] phenomenon. These thoughts, as is ev dent, furnish strong motives for the invei tigation of chemical substances, and tl science of chemistry owes much to tl work of those who were guided by thes motives.

And so in each period as a new thougl has served as the guide we find that me

have been actuated by diflferent motives, and often one and the same worker has been under the influence of mixed motives. Only in a few cases does it appear that the highest motives alone operate. We must take men as we find them, and we may be thankful that on the whole there are so many who are impelled by one motive
