In this age of cheap printing the periodical daily, weekly, monthly, annual brings forward an enormous amount of half-digested reports of doings in the world. Each report gives its results in more or less technical language. There is a special technique to each one of the natural sciences and to each one of the departments of history, of philology, jurisprudence, sociology, to say nothing of the fine arts or literature. A man or woman or youth who reads the periodical carries away with him as a matter of pure gain what he is able to seize and understand. If ignorant of the technique, he gets very little that is valuable. This is the use of general information, to furnish one with the technique, an outline of the history of the investigation, and a summary of its results.
