But In Practical Science, The Question Is—What Are We To Do?—A Question Which Involves The Necessity For The Immediate Adoption Of Some Rule Of Working. In Doubtful Cases, We Cannot Allow Our Machines And Our Works Of Improvement To Wait For The Advancement Of Science; And If Existing Data Are Insufficient To Give An Exact Solution Of The Question, That Approximate Solution Must Be Acted Upon Which The Best Data Attainable Show To Be The Most Probable. A Prompt And Sound Judgment In Cases Of This Kind Is One Of The Characteristics Of A Practical Man In The Right Sense Of That Term.
