The Popular Science Monthly

IN 1907 AND 1908 For thirty-five years The Popular Science Monthly has maintained its position as the standard scientific magazine of the world. Its performance in the past is the best guarantee that can be given for the value of the contents that will be contained in future volumes. A list of articles that will appear during the coming year would necessarily be very incomplete. It is the intention of the editor to treat so far as possible topics of general and timely interest. In view of the rapid advances made by science, no one can be sure what will be the main centers of attention six months hence or who will be the most competent to treat them. We think, however, that the Monthly for 1908 will not be of less value than in 1907, and some of its contents for last year may be recounted to indicate the general standards of the magazine.

Professor Minot, of the Harvard Medical School, contributed a series of six articles on the problem of age, growth and death, summarizing the work on which he has been engaged for the last thirty years in a form comprehensible and attractive to the general reader. Professor James, of Harvard University, printed two articles on pragmatisms since put into the book that has proved fascinating to many readers. There also appeared a series of articles on the value of science, by M. Poincaré, perhaps the most eminent man of science now living, who after his great researches in mathematics and physics has turned his thoughts towards a discussion of the principles of science. Other articles of a general and philosophical character were contributed by President Jordan, of Stanford University, and Professor Fullerton, of Columbia University.

The hundredth anniversary of the birth of Agassiz occurred this year, and articles about him were contributed by two of his most eminent pupils, Professor Wilder and Professor Morse. In this year there also occurred the bi-centenary of the death of Linnaeus, and his work and place in the history of science were adequately treated. The Monthly has contained during the year a very considerable number of articles on the biography of men of science and on scientific institutions, many of them extensively illustrated. The authors include Dr. Weir Mitchell, President Woodward, Professor Osborn, Professor Dean and other distinguished scientific men.

During the year there have been published articles on the navigation of the Mississippi River, on the Salton Sea, on the Reclamation Service, on the then recent Jamaica earthquake, on the Japanese volcanoes, and a number of articles, many of which are elaborately illustrated, on geology and other natural sciences. Among them may be mentioned Professor. Chittenden's article on “The Influence of Diet on Endurance and General Efficiency,” and Dr. Wheeler's on “The Origin of Slavery among Ants.” The timely topics discussed may be illustrated by articles on: “Denatured Alcohol," "The Development of the Telephone Service,” “The Economic Importance of Mosquitoes," "Spelling Reform," "The Canals of Mars," and "The Radio-activity of Ordinary Substances.”

In addition to articles on the natural and exact sciences, the Monthly has contained a large number of contributions on education and on the medical, psychological and sociological sciences. The Monthly always treats fully problems of heredity and racial improvement, the two most important articles on the latter subject published during the year in any journal being those by Dr. Galton and Professor Pearson on “Eugenics.'

The department entitled "The Progress of Science" contains each month editorial articles and notes on subjects of current interest. Like the rest of the magazine this department is fully illustrated.

It has of course been possible to name in this advertisement only a part of the papers that have appeared in The Popular Science Monthly during the year 1907, but we trust that they will indicate the high standards and popular interest which the Monthly has maintained and will continue to maintain.
