HONORARY MEMBER OF THE CHEMICAL SOCIETY OF THE LEIGH UNIVERSITY, U.S.
AUTHOR OF "A TREATISE ON FUEL, SCIENTIFIC AND PRACTICAL;” “A MANUAL OF
QUALITATIVE ANALYSIS ;'

;" " THE STUDENT'S GUIDE IN THE HIGHER BRANCHES
OF CHEMISTRY;

“A PLAN FOR RENDERING SALTED MEAT MORE
NUTRITIOUS, THEREBY PREVENTING SCURVY ;' THE FIRST STEP
IN CHEMISTRY; A NEW METHOD OF TEACHING THE

ELEMENTS OF THE SCIENCE," ETC. ETC.

"As the best sciences which the ancient world framed supplied the best elements of intellectual educa-
tion up to modern times, so the grand step by which, in modern times, science has sprung up into a
magnitude and majesty far superior to her ancient dimensions, should exercise its influence upon modern
education, and contribute its proper result to modern intellectual culture. . . . . By such study of one or
more departments of inductive knowledge, the mind may escape from the thraldom and illusion which
reigns in the world of mere words. .... The knowledge of which I speak must be a knowledge of THINGS.
and not merely of NAMES OF THINGS."-WHEWELL.
