THE RELATIONS OF EMBRYOLOGY TO MEDICAL PROGRESS
[no value]
[no value]
CHARLES SEDGWICK MINOT
EMBRYOLOGY is the most complex subject in the domain of science. Living beings are the most complex objects which nature offers us for study, and of this great class the higher animals exceed all others in complexity. The anatomist who studies the structure of the adult has a finished apparatus to investigate; a machine which has been perfected, in which, to be sure, nature may still make repairs, but in the pattern of which she makes no radical changes.

SUMMARY OF THE COLLECTION.

L. P. GRATACAP
IT requires very little imagination to picture to our eyes the astonishment of the inhabitants of the older portions of the earth at the fall of meteorites in days before scientific knowledge had reduced them to ordinary phenomena. What could be better calculated to excite admiration and reverence than a luminous missile suddenly passing athwart the sky, accompanied by detonations, and almost simultaneously reaching the ground?

DAVID STARR JORDAN
AT the December meeting of the Astral Camera Club, through the courtesy of Madame Yda Hhatch, of San Diego, vice-president of the American Chirological Society, the club received a rare treat, direct from the fountains of the Orient. Madame Hhatch is an adept in the science of palmistry and therefore a person of wealth and culture.

S. L. BIGELOW
THE advance workers in chemistry and physics are constantly accumulating new facts and propounding new theories which must be digested and incorporated in the body of the sciences. The process of assimilation is often slow, and it is right that new and important facts should be vouched for by more than one investigator, and that a new theory should prove its usefulness before being placed beside old and tried facts and theories.

ROBERT McD. ALLEN
THE facts and evils of food adulteration have been overwhelmingly established. They have been published in volume after volume of state and federal government reports, and have been sworn to again and again by competent experts. State courts have imposed fines, and in hundreds of instances manufacturers and dealers have confessed that their food is adulterated, and judgments are entered accordingly.

ORVILLE PAUL PHILLIPS
OWING to the demand of the uneducated mind for any kind of a crude guess rather than an acknowledgment of ignorance, strange stories often spring up around natural phenomena, attributing, in most absurd ways, effects to causes which have no more connection than the barnacles and geese of Gerarde.

GEO. H. ASHLEY
SINCE the San Francisco earthquake, the reading and scientific public has become acquainted with the fact, if not a1ready known, that the recent disaster was the result, not of volcanic activity, but of the activity of the ordinary mountain-making forces.

MYRON LESLIE FULLER
PROBABLY few people are aware that the greatest earthquake our country has experienced since its settlement was not the destructive shock at Charleston in 1886, or even the recent terrifying manifestation at San Francisco, but was, on the contrary, the now almost forgotten earthquake of New Madrid, the first tremors of which took place on the sixteenth of December, 1811.

IN the spring of 1903, the university community at Palo Alto was startled to find that in about two days upwards of one hundred and thirty students and about a hundred other people— most of them living in the town of Palo Alto, but a considerable number also in fraternity houses on the university campus—were attacked by typhoid fever.

AT the New Orleans meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science the council voted that in addition to the regular winter meeting, a summer meeting should be held at Ithaca, N. Y., from June 29 to July 3. For such an experiment, and the holding of more than one meeting a year is avowedly an experiment, the place is well chosen.
