Politics and Tools

Able gentlemen who kindly consent to draw salary and acclaim for making laws for us earnestly insist that the most important study for us all is politics because that so intimately concerns our daily life.

It sounds well but it isn't true. The most important study is tools. While the politicians, who will be statesmen after they have died, are devoting some research and more talk to saving the country at a fixed salary, filling pages of newspapers with their important views, a thousand obscure individuals are working on inventions-on tools, that will totally change conditions and make the wisdom of the politicians as useful as last year's birds-nest.

A college professor in Wisconsin invented a milk separator that was the chief factor in bringing about a complete political and industrial revolution in Denmark and upset conditions in all Europe.

If you want to study the emigration problem intelligently, you have to begin with the self-binder. For a thousand years Great Britain has grown powerful upon the conviction that she was an isolated nation. What has the flying-machine done to her whole system of existence?

You can know about these things from ever so many sources—if you have the time and money. Or you can keep abreast of what is going on in the world, learn of the newest tools, the new inventions, the scientific progress and be sure that the whole ground is covered accurately, that the facts are.presented very simply and clearly but with technical authority, by reading the Scientific American.

That is the work it has been doing for sixty-seven years. It is doing it in a bigger, better, broader way each year.

Maybe you would like to read a little booklet Ten
Stories" about the beginnings of some remarkable things.
It has a little humor, a great deal of interest and it is
yours for the asking.
