He fuithor stated that every field of'kuowlengo was covered by tho threo questions, "What?" "Why?" "How?" After showing tho truth of this statement, tho steps In good thinking, four In number, were-taken up. Tho first step Is to think clearly. Tho second la to think distinctly. The third is to think in relation to other tilings. Tho fourth is to think ox naustlvcly.
