Title: The wood cylinder method of measuring forest inflammability
Author: Gisborne, H. T.;

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: The best test of the practicability of any new method or device is the actual trial by numerous users who are interested only in the end product, and who have no special interest in the means employed to reach that end. Such users are not inclined to give the new method the advantage of any doubts, and they are particularly critical of the method or device insofar as it may make more work for them. If, after such a trial, these users extend the use of the new method, of their own volition, or better yet if they do this at some expense to themselves, the verdict is most conclusive.
