IN the small town of Heilbronn, in Würtemberg, stands a monument erected to the memory of the physician, Robert Mayer. It was unveiled in 1892, just fifty years after the publication of Robert Mayer’s first essay on the conservation of energy.

PROFESSOR T. D. A. COCKERELL
IN attempting to trace the evolution of plants and animals, the naturalist finds himself continually regretting what is called “the imperfection of the geological record.” Of all the creatures which have lived and died upon the earth, only a very small proportion have left any record in the rocks; and since the remains are widely scattered and belong to very diverse periods of time, anything like a complete consecutive series is usually unattainable.

"HUMAN life is the cheapest thing in Chicago,” recently declared Judge Cleland. “This city,” he asserted, “witnesses a murder for every day in the year.” Now 365 homicides a year would mean, for Chicago, that one out of every 5,614 of her citizens is destined to be murdered each year; or, in other words, that 17 in each 100,000 of the population would annually meet death at the hands of a fellow citizen.

PROFESSOR R. M. WENLEY
LOTZE’S (1817-81) career as an author opened in 1841, and his psychological contributions relevant to the present theme came to an end practically in 1852. Thereafter, save for a few articles,1 he devoted himself to the elaboration of his highly significant philosophical system.

LINUS W. KLINE
NO stimulus, perhaps, more mercifully and effectually breaks the surface tension of consciousness, thereby conditioning the mind for a stronger forward movement, than that of humor. It is the one universal dispensary for human kind : a medicine for the poor, a tonic for the rich, a recreation for the fatigued and a beneficent check to the strenuous.

IT is generally acknowledged to-day that little progress can be made in sanitation or hygiene without me general cooperation of the public. To obtain this cooperation, it is essential that the people be correctly informed upon all sanitary or hygienic subjects; for should it be found that the demands for this or that improvement are not based upon true scientific facts, how can success be hoped for, when a really essential reform is brought forth?

A. E. P. ROCKWELL
THE cow is the foster mother of our civilization. And fortunate are we in being able to secure the services of this humble animal in our endeavors to arrest the most important cause of race suicide. For our greatest menace in this direction resides in the fact that an alarming proportion of infants must be vicariously nourished at some period of their development by the cow.

IN the sunny southland, stretching from Pennsylvania in the northeast to Alabama in the southwest, are the Southern Appalachian Mountains. These constitute not a single ridge or chain, but a zone or belt composed of numerous parallel ridges, as the Alleghenies, Blue Ridge, Black, Unakas, Smoky, etc.

THE American Association for the Advancement of Science in planning a special summer meeting had in view a visit to an educational institution of interest in a region attractive in the summer time, rather than a convenient place for the presentation of scientific papers.
