Their reports indicate that man is a great spendthrift.

He seems not so much a husbandman, making the most of the treasures of his life-garden, as a robber looting a storehouse for booty. Travelers affirm that one part of the northern pineries has been wasted by mans careless fires and much of the rest by his reckless axe. Coal experts insist that a large percentage of heat passes out of the chimney. The new chemistry claims that not a little of the precious ore is cast upon the slag heap. In the fields the farmers overlook some ears of corn and pass by some handfuls of wheat. In the work-room the scissors leave selvage and remnant.

In the mill the saw and plane refuse slabs and edges. In the kitchen a part of what the husband carries in, the wifes wasteful cooking casts out. But the secondary wastes involve still heavier losses. Mans carelessness in the factory breaks delicate machinery, his ignorance spoils raw materials, his idleness burns out boilers, his recklessness blows up engines- and no skill of manager in juggling figures in January can retrieve the wastes of June.
