THE YOUTHFUL CHARM OF SCIENCE.  The search for truth still retains the charm of being in strong contrast to gray and now tiresome error; but this charm is gradually disappearing.  It is true we still live in the youthful age of science and are accustomed to follow truth as a lovely girl; but how will it be when one day she becomes an elderly, ill tempered looking woman?  In almost all sciences the fundamental knowledge is either found in earliest times or is still being sought; what a different attraction this exerts compared to that time when everything essential has been found and there only remains for the seeker a scanty gleaning (which sensation may be learnt in several historical disciplines).
