PROFESSOR E. L, YOUMANS.
D, APPLETON & COMPANY,
The growing importance of scientific knowledge to all classes of the community calls for more efficient means of diffusing it. THE POPULAR SCIENCE MONTULY has been started to prumote this object, and supply a want met by no other periodical in the United States.
It contains instructive and attractive aticles, and abstracts of articles, original, selected and illustrated, from the leading scientific men of different countries, givicg the latest interpretation of natnral phenomena, explaining the application of science to the practical arts, and to the op erations of domestic life.
It is designed to give especial prominence to those branches of science which help to a blter understanding of the nature of man; to present the claims of scientific education; and the bearings of science upon the questions of society and government. How the various subjects of current opiuion are affected by the advance of scientific inquiry will also be considered.
In its literary character, this periodical aims to be popular, without being supercial, and up peals to the intelligent reading classes of the community. It seeks to procure authentic statements from men who kuow their subjects, and who will address the non-scientific public for porposes of exposition and explanation.
It will have contributions from HERBERT SPENCER, Professor HUXLEY, Professor TYNDAL, Mr. DARWIN, acd other writers identified with speculative thought and scientific investigation
